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.

The BA Everywhere Campaign invites you to be part of:

A Celebration of Determination to

Break ALL the Chains

Saturday, August 9, 2014

From BAsics, from the talks and writings of Bob Avakian:

You cannot break all the chains, except one. You cannot say you want to be free of exploitation and oppression, except you want to keep the oppression of women by men. You can’t say you want to liberate humanity yet keep one half of the people enslaved to the other half. The oppression of women is completely bound up with the division of society into masters and slaves, exploiters and exploited, and the ending of all such conditions is impossible without the complete liberation of women. All this is why women have a tremendous role to play not only in making revolution but in making sure there is all-the-way revolution. The fury of women can and must be fully unleashed as a mighty force for proletarian revolution.
BAsics 3:22

If YOU are provoked and inspired by the theme of “Break ALL the Chains!” we invite you to perform, read, create and be a part of the celebration on August 9th. The events will mark the publication of Break ALL the Chains! Bob Avakian on the Emancipation of Women and the Communist Revolution, a recently-released collection of path breaking work about how critical the liberation of women is to the revolution to transform all of society and the world. Poems, songs, and drama will show the determination of people struggling to end this degradation and oppression and fight for a whole different world and a whole other way people could be. Join us on August 9th.

Updated July 6, 2014

The 1000 Years – $1000 for BA Everywhere is an on-going project of BA Everywhere. Over $11,000 has been raised in this first phase of the project to make the hundreds and thousands of years suffered in the hellholes of this nation of prisons count for something that will really matter: working for a radically new world. By the Month of Resistance in October, "1000 Years – $1000" should aim to raise tens of thousands of dollars more.

From A Former Prisoner Who's Answering the Call to Contribute to "1000 Years – $1000 for BA Everywhere"

May 30, 2014

I'm also extending a challenge to everyone who hates and wants to eliminate the many outrages that unceasingly flow from the capitalist-imperialist system—or anyone who hates to see injustice go unchallenged—to match not just the amount I'm raising, but all that will be given by prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their loved ones.

Stories Told to BA Everywhere About Those Who Have Been Locked Up

June 9, 2014

The response to "1000 years-1000 dollars for BA Everywhere" project has touched a deep vein of pain and outrage. Read these stories from reports from around the country as BA Everywhere committees have gone out to jazz festivals, to the street corners in the communities, to the beach and to local jails. Read the stories here.

$100 from Family of Iranian Revolutionary, "so his life can count for the emancipation of humanity."

June 3, 2014

From a member of a family who made a group donation of $100 to
BA Everywhere recently:

"My brother was a revolutionary in Iran during the vicious rule of the US-backed Shah. After the revolution, under the Khomeni regime, he continued his revolutionary work. He was arrested, held for two months, tortured, and finally executed. He would have been 58 years old if he had lived. My family members have each pitched in funds, and together we are donating $100 to the BA Everywhere "1000 years – $1000" campaign, so his life can count for the emancipation of humanity."

Editorials and Getting into the Big Questions

Building the August 9, 2014 Break ALL the Chains Celebrations, and Raising Funds & Involving People in the BA Everywhere Campaign

Accompanying this article is a compelling vision of Break ALL the Chains celebrations to bring a broad range of people together on August 9, 2014 at the mid-point of the BA Everywhere summer campaign and to celebrate the publication of Break ALL the Chains! Bob Avakian on the Emancipation of Women and the Communist Revolution. In this article we want to share a basic conception of how these events and the BA Everywhere campaign should be built over the next four weeks.

New BA Everywhere Resource!

The BA Everywhere campaign is introducing a new design for palm cards of quotes from Bob Avakian's book BAsics starting with the quote 3:16, where BA speaks to those the system has cast off. The quote is on one side and the otherside has information about how to be involved in and donate to the 1000 Years–$1000 for BA Everywhere project.

Expect to see here, very soon, more quote cards from BAsics designed to direct many people to information about BA's work and the BA Everywhere campaign. Next we will be posting a design for the BAsics 3:22 "You Can't Break All the Chains But One," so these can be produced as part of plans for the August 9th "Break ALL the Chains Day" being called by the BA Everywhere campaign. These designs will be created in color for higher-quality palmcards (this new card is 5"x7") and also in black and white for lower-cost flyers that can be run off on home computers or at local copy stores.

These cards are for MANY people to take stacks of and distribute wherever they are over the summer; they are for all kinds of people to distribute where potential donors can be found: at events, concerts, campuses, to organizations concerned with the outrages this system is subjecting people to; and to get out in neighborhoods from those of the basic people to where better-off people live. And they are for people to use to introduce friends, coworkers and relatives to BA and the BA Everywhere campaign. As BA says,

"[W]hat about BA Everywhere—whom should we be working to involve in that? Everyone who agrees—or can be won to see—that it is very important that what is represented by BA/the new synthesis become a major point of reference, and subject of discussion and debate, throughout society, can and should be involved in and contribute, in various ways, to BA Everywhere...."   —From the ADDENDUM, 2014, Basic Orientation Regarding the Two Mass Initiatives (and the Overall Ensemble of Revolutionary Work) to The Mass Initiatives and Their Relation to Our Strategic Objectives

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 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.

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…

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..."
