"Revolution. Why it's Necessary! Why it's Possible! What it's All About!"
July 8th - 7:30pm - Lemmle Theater - 1332 Second St., Santa Monica
A Video Presentation of a series of talks given by Revolutionary Communist Party Chairman Bob Avakian.
n 2003 Chairman Bob Avakian delivered an historic talk in the United States. This 5-VHS or 4-DVD set, with Spanish translation, combines materials from two amazing events.
This talk, followed by questions and answers, is a wide-ranging revolutionary journey, covering many topics. It breaks down the very nature of the society we live in and how humanity has come to a time where a radically different society is possible. It takes us deep into the heart of the horrors we see around us – from the oppression of whole peoples and parts of the world to what underlies brutal wars of domination; why we live in a world where profound poverty, starvation and exploitation co-exists with unprecedented wealth. From the American nightmare to a sweeping vision of a whole new world, he breaks it all down, and shows how and why a radically different world can be brought forward.
If you’ve ever questioned why Black people and others are oppressed in America, why some people work with their minds while others slave in back-breaking labor all their lives; if you’ve wondered about the role of religion in society, or whether the problem is human nature; if you’ve wondered why the spread of America’s so-called freedom and democracy comes wrapped in war and deadly destruction; if you’ve wondered if a better world is possible – you won’t want to miss this talk.
This video/DVD is full of heart and soul, humor and seriousness. It will challenge you and set your heart and mind to flight.
BOB AVAKIAN is a creative and wide-ranging thinker who, at the same time, maintains a profound sense of the actual struggles, trends and sentiments among the masses, the movements of opposition, and society broadly. And, he is the leader of the RCP, USA, a Party which is seriously setting its sight on the seizure of power right within the U.S. itself, and the revolutionary transformation of society as part of the world proletarian revolution, and he is at the same time a very important leader of the international revolutionary movement and the international communist movement. He is one of those truly rare individuals who emerge only occasionally as an especially concentrated expression of the very best of what the revolutionary people and their struggles can forge and bring to the forefront at certain junctures in history. “REVOLUTION: Why It’s Necessary, Why It’s Possible, What It’s All About” will allow you to spend a day with this unique leader. He will take you on a journey that can change your life.
Some comments from people who attended the talk:
“It was like hearing Mao speak on the Long March.” [A young Black proletarian woman]
“If my people had a leader like this, we would have been free a long time ago.” [A young worker from the Mixtec national minority of Mexico]
“Quite frankly, many people have never heard anyone say the things Chairman Avakian said, or have ever heard anyone talk about this world, this social system, this society, and another possible society and way of living in the way he did before. This talk addressed questions that literally millions of people all over the world are agonizing over at this moment.” [A communist artist]
“He was showing the kind of system we live in and what it does to all humanity... he was inviting people to rise up their sights, their views and look at things at this moment of history we’re in and the need to transform and change things.” [A young construction worker from Latin America]
“He speaks from the heart and at the same time with such a sweeping understanding, with total resolution, and not just with hatred for the bourgeoisie but confidence in the masses of people.” [a young immigrant woman from South Asia]
“A journey to be savored.” [a veteran communist)
