In the last couple years, a bunch of vile know-nothing pro-Trump fascists have repeatedly attacked Revolution Books and even threatened to burn it down! And now, once again this Sunday, Sept. 1, they’re marching on Revolution Books.
The call for their “No to Marxism” protest says, “Revolution Books is a communist anti-American store.” Innocent as charged! Revolution Books is the intellectual, cultural, and political center of a movement for an actual revolution. At the heart of our store is the new communism developed by Bob Avakian—the most radical and scientific understanding of the world and how it can be changed. While these flag-waving cheerleaders for U.S. imperialism celebrate “America First,” Revolution Books carries novels, poetry, plays, history, and analyses, which tell the truth about of this country and value the humanity of people throughout the world. As Bob Avakian says, “Internationalism—The Whole World Comes First.”
They say, “This store promotes books and the ideology of calling for open revolution to the American people and a communist overthrow of America.” Why yes, we do promote books! All kinds of books! And yes, we are calling for revolution to get rid of this capitalist system that’s destroying billions of lives and destroying the environment of our planet. At Revolution Books you can find the strategy for how to make an actual revolution. And you can pick up the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America, written by Bob Avakian, to learn about the liberating society we start building day 1 after this system is overthrown.
This has been a summer of white supremacy pouring forth from the oval office and muzzles of AR-15s, unleashed by a fascist regime in power, while way too many people turn their heads away and do nothing “because it hasn’t affected ME yet.” This fascism is not a sideshow or something that can be voted away, but is deeply rooted in this system – it can and is “happening here.” It’s time get off the sidelines and ACT!
