Welcome to Revolution online…
A radically transformed revcom.us!
October 7, 2012 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us
With this issue of Revolution, we are excited to announce the launching of a radically transformed revcom.us website!
This new website can and will play a pivotal role in putting the new stage of communist revolution on the map, and in carrying out our strategy for revolution. It will be a unique, inviting, and challenging presence on the Internet. There’s just nothing else on the web like revcom.us—in content or style.
The new revcom.us revolves around the two mainstays of our strategy for revolution: first, developing a culture of appreciation, promotion, and popularization around the leadership, the body of work, and the method and approach of Bob Avakian; second, wielding Revolution newspaper as a key tool in building the movement for revolution. (For an exploration of the significance of the two mainstays and their relationship to building the movement for revolution, see the section “Key Principles and Mainstays in Building the Movement for Revolution” in What Humanity Needs: Revolution, and the New Synthesis of Communism, an Interview with Bob Avakian.)
Throughout the website, the vision, work, and leadership of Bob Avakian is brought forward in a way that invites and challenges people here, and around the world, to get into BA! You can watch clips from the Revolution talk, listen to BA read from his memoir, and seriously engage in depth with the new synthesis of communism he has brought forward.
At the new revcom.us, you can easily access Revolution newspaper—its editorials, analysis, and exposures; correspondence and breaking news. You can experience and spread Revolution’s dynamic and compelling front covers, centerspreads, and back page posters.
The new revcom.us also has a section focused on challenging people to get with the leadership of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA. And there is a section that connects people with different dimensions of the movement for revolution: “Fight the Power, and Transform the People, for Revolution,” including the mass campaign to raise money to get BA Everywhere.
In every section of the site, people will find both philosophical and political challenges to engage and get with the revolution, as well as practical and organizational channels to do so. The site will connect with first-time visitors and people brand new to the movement for revolution, as well as those more conversant with the terms and material at the site or who are part of movements for revolution the world over.
In addition to forging a network of sustainers in light of the launching of the new revcom.us (see accompanying article), we should all be promoting the new site everywhere. Everywhere people are refusing to be beaten down... everywhere people resist injustice... in environments where the oppressive ideology and outlook of the system is being challenged, the URL revcom.us must be in the mix: on signs and t-shirts, from the stage and (where appropriate) on the walls, in online links from social media and other websites, and throughout society.
And, at the same time, we should not underestimate but fully maximize the role the new website can play every step of the way for people working through their questions about the need and basis for communist revolution and committing their lives to that.
In a word: Everyone who refuses to accept this world as it is, who wants to learn about, to engage with, and to link up with the real revolution... go to revcom.us!
