About the
BA Everywhere Campaign

National Brochure:

Contribute to BA Everywhere! The World Needs to Be Radically Changed. Here’s Step One.

The work BA has done creates new possibility at an excruciating time for humanity—nothing less than an opening for a visionary and viable future.. The biggest immediate problem right now is that all this is basically not known. It's not on the scene in the way it needs to be—engaged and discussed, popularized and debated. And to solve that problem, there is, right now, a major fundraising campaign to make Avakian's work and leadership known in every corner of society.

BA Everywhere: April 2014

Climate Change and Changing the Whole Political Atmosphere

April 7, 2014

This is a moment when if you have your eyes open to the world, the stark reality of the wanton destruction of the planet stands out as so big, so criminal, so outrageously dangerous, that you just want to scream. This is a moment, a month, to reach out broadly with the full vision and understanding of the system that underlies all the problems humanity faces, and the liberating way forward and to find the ways to involve them in the BA Everywhere Campaign.

     Why I am Donating… Why You Should See
     Revolution—Nothing Less!

A BA Everywhere Earth Day Challenge:

“I am donating what I make on Tuesday—Earth Day—to get a real solution out there. You should too.”

April 18, 2014

This challenge, made by an immigrant restaurant worker and college student, needs to be spread broadly. Those flipping burgers and those crunching numbers need to be all donating what they would be making on Earth Day (from $50 to $5,000) to get the real solution—communist revolution as re-envisioned and developed with Bob Avakian’s New Synthesis—out broadly in society.

We won’t put people in jails forever

March 25, 2014

I recently donated $100 to send BAsics, from the talks and writings of Bob Avakian to prisoners, and I ask others to consider donating as well to the BA Everywhere Campaign.  The need is enormous, and the time is short.

The following are voices of people at a homeless shelter in a midwestern city where there have been screenings of BA Speaks:
REVOLUTION—NOTHING LESS! Bob Avakian Live

"It is not just a Black thing. This revolution is a world thing. People of color are targeted more but it is the world. It is a global thing and something has got to be done. We are already in a world of shit."
—From a Black man after thinking about what he saw in the film

“Is he an atheist? You gonna need god to do what he is saying to do. And I am for the anti-police brutality movement.” —One man was laughing after seeing part of RNL and as he made this comment

"I want to initiate some of the things Bob Avakian talks about--I know others who would like this." —Another Black man

A Model Fundraising Letter for the BA Everywhere Campaign, April 2014

April 14, 2014

We are posting this letter developed by several people working on raising funds for BA Everywhere. We thought this will be helpful as one model in reaching out to sit down during April with many people who are deeply concerned about the environmental crisis. This isn't intended as one-size-fits-all – it can be edited and personalized. We would welcome seeing other letters people have developed.

From Someone Working on BA Everywhere

An Observation on Framework vs. Framework

January 27, 2014

It is often a struggle to get people to more systematically walk through what we, the revolutionaries, are actually talking about, working on, and where in reality that vision and strategy comes from AND CAN GO—in the way that the many particular parts of the REVOLUTION—NOTHING LESS! speech and the speech as a whole does. And also conversely, they often do not approach what they think about how the world changes, can be changed, or should be changed as A THEORY—a framework for how and what they think about and advocate for—whether it’s nonviolence as an absolute moral value, or “radical feminism,” or Occupy-ism, etc…

We received this letter reflecting on some work taking out the BA Everywhere Campaign

Listening & Learning – Changing Our Approach & Changing People's Thinking

March 25, 2014

We’ve had some important experience in reaching out to people who came to the premiere of BA Speaks: REVOLUTION – NOTHING LESS! or who have seen the film, or parts of the film, in the last year since it premiered. We’ve also worked at changing our approach in significant ways and this has had an impact – and we’re learning a lot more about the people we’re reaching out to in the process.

One thing we did is break out of a more passive approach to this outreach....

BA on BA

BAsics 6:11

"Why am I—why is my body of work, and method and approach—important? Because this is bringing forward an advanced understanding, a heightened understanding, of what revolution and communism are all about and how to move toward the objective of revolution and communism, as well as a method for engaging and struggling through the contradictions that are inevitably going to be encountered in that process.…"

Cornel West on BA

"My dear brother Bob Avakian... is the Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party.... He is one of the few coming out of the 60's who never sold out, he never caved in, he never gave up, held on to his forging of a rigorous, scientific analysis of the objective realities that are driven by a revolutionary love – because he has such a deep love for poor people, oppressed people, all around the world. Whether you agree or disagree with our brother, one thing you cannot deny: that he is the real thing. No doubt about it."

Cornel West, introducing his interview with Bob Avakian on the Smiley & West radio show (October 5, 2012)

Who is BA?

"In Bob Avakian, the Chairman of our Party, we have the kind of rare and precious leader who does not come along very often. A leader who has given his heart, and all his knowledge, skills and abilities to serving the cause of revolution and the emancipation of humanity. Bob Avakian came alive as a revolutionary in the 1960s..."
