COMMUNIST 4 SPEAKING TOUR
TIME TO THROW OFF THE CHAINS OF OPPRESSION
AND GET WITH THE EMANCIPATORS OF
In these dangerous times, Revolutionary Communist Speaking Tour
is set to hit the road, spreading revolution and communism and challenging
those at the bottom of society to step forward and become emancipators of
Is revolution really possible? What does it mean to emancipate all of humanity
and what does that have to do with Black people’s experience of slavery
and oppression which continues down to today? Why is
communism the answer and what does it mean for people to be communists
and to get involved in a communist movement?
What kind of leadership do we need? How do you judge revolutionary
leadership? Is it based on nationality or should it be based on a vision of
where we need to go and what we need to do to get out of
this nightmare and bring into reality our dreams of a better
Is communism a European ideology? Are Black people too much into religion
to be attracted to communism? What about spirituality: is it true that
communism is cold and devoid of soul?
What future does the Bush team have for the youth in the ghettos and barrios. Prisons and
jails, military uniforms and Bibles – calling on the youth to pray
to a non-existent god while fighting, dying, and killing others like themselves
Can we really rise up and actually get our freedom?
These are all big questions. And this tour is coming your way to get into
all this and more–with no holds barred.
If we are going to be liberators of humanity, we must have a
revolutionary, scientific way of looking at the world and approaching all
questions. We need the leadership of Bob Avakian, the
Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP). We say straight up that
Bob Avakian is a visionary and creative revolutionary
communist thinker and leader who is serious about
leading a revolution in this country. Listen to the love for and profound
confidence he has in the people:
“One of the things that I see, something that I haven’t lost
sight of, is this: I see all the strength of the ruling class, but I also see
all the way through all this shit, all the contradictions in society–I
actually see a force in this society that, if it were developed into a
revolutionary people, actually could have a go at it, could have a real chance
of making revolution, of being the backbone force for revolution, when the
conditions were ripe. I see a force of millions and millions and
millions–youth and others–for whom this system is a horror.”
This tour is aiming to connect that potential and creativity with
revolutionary science–a powerful combination that could actually mean
that we would have a fighting chance to really change things.
We are revolutionary communists, and we do not believe in gods or
saviors. We look reality in the face, and we are passionate about changing the
world. We are:
CARL DIX: RCP National
Spokesperson. In 1970 Carl was one of six active duty GI’s at Ft. Lewis
who refused orders to Vietnam.
A veteran revolutionary activist, Carl was formerly with the Black
Workers’ Congress and the African Liberation Day Support Committee. He
represented the RCP, USA, at
the founding press conference for the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement
in London in
1984. And he is a co-founder of the October 22nd Coalition to Stop Police
Brutality in 1996.
CLYDE YOUNG: In 1990, the
Revolutionary Worker published a lengthy interview with Clyde
Young, referring to him as Comrade X in
that interview. As a teenager, he served time in
juvenile “correctional institutions” and while serving a lengthy
prison sentence he became a revolutionary –leading prison
rebellions and other political activity. He was influenced by the revolutionary
leaders and movements of the 1960s, including Malcolm X, George Jackson and the
Black Panther Party. He was also greatly influenced by Mao and the Great
Proletarian Cultural Revolution in China. Upon his release from
prison, Clyde Young met Bob Avakian and recognized in him unique and special qualities
as a leader and also his enormous sense of humor. Clyde Young’s writings
for the revolutionary press range from essays on Martin Luther King and the
Vietnam War, Muhammad Ali and boxing to a major analysis of demographic
changes, “Since the 60s: Trends of Impoverishment, Oppression, and Class
Polarization in the Black Nation.”
AKIL BOMANI: Akil Bomani is a
member of the Chicago
Revolutionary Writers and Artists Collective and a correspondent to Revolution newspaper. Growing up in the streets of Chicago in the 1990s with
his Pentecostal mom, Akil searched for answers. He
speaks powerfully to how he came to be a revolutionary communist in his
article, “Losing My Religion.” He is a writer, poet, rapper, and
actor. Akil is currently studying for a masters degree in linguistics and writing a book on Black
JOE VEALE: Joe Veale is the
spokesperson for the Los Angeles
branch of the RCP. Joe arrived in L.A.
during the ‘92 Rebellion determined to link up with the courageous
fighters there and fuse their determination to confront injustice with the
science of MLM and the cause of communist revolution. Joe is a veteran of the
Black Panther Party.
On the tour we will also be dealing with some things that are really
vexing for people : for example,
what’s up with all those crucifixes–gold and otherwise–that
are so popular? Why is the “Preacherman”
speaking for and representing Black people, including some preachers who are
hanging out with the Christian Fascists and the Bush crowd, skinning and
grinning and spreading that poison among Black people?And what about Bill Cosby’s recent (and
on-going) tirade about personal responsibility and why is he playing the role
of a bootlicker and a flunkey for the ruling class (the powers-that-be) with
all that drivel?
What about all that dissin’ and disrespectin’ the sisters and all that
And why do so many young women with so much creativity and revolutionary
potential think that the only thing they can do in life is to "make
What about all that hip-hop capitalism and entrepreneurialism? How can
the masses change the world if they, the very people who need revolution
the most, are caught up in all that “bling-bling”
and “gettin’ paid and gettin’
rich” and “pimpin’ and playin’” and “bangin’
People of all nationalities who are brutally oppressed
at the bottom of society need to start “fighting the powers that
be” and start being revolutionaries and communists and emancipators of
This tour is right on time. We are restless, we
are passionate and we are ready to hit the road. So look out, here we come,
dropping science as we travel from one end of the country to another.
We need big funds right away to make this important speaking tour
a reality. We call on everyone–masses in the ghettos and
barrios, youth and students, and revolutionary-minded people in the arts,
sciences, sports, hip hop, teachers, lawyers, doctors–to donate
generously to make it possible for the speaking tour to happen. Get in touch.
Help us to spread the word. And invite us to your town.
