Revolution Talk Screening in Park
Thursday, July 15, 2010: As the sun went down Bob Avakian’s voice boomed out from a large inflatable screen in a park in New York City. More than 100 people, all different ages, mostly Black but other nationalities as well, gathered in and around the park in the first in a series of showings of the film of the Revolution talk in parks. Some listened from benches around the park, hanging out on stoops, leaning out of windows, and sitting on the park steps where people from a university and a hospital came out onto the street. One couple heard the audio outside the park, couldn’t tell where it was coming from, and wound their way down through the park to find the screening. Afterwards people talked about what they had heard—conversations ranged from how Avakian talked about how people from all over the world end up living in the U.S. and asking more about how the U.S. destroys the economies of countries like Mexico, to some people who expressed surprise to learn that Avakian was the leader of a movement that is building for revolution here and now.
