May Day 2014
WE REFUSE TO ACCEPT SLAVERY IN ANY FORM HERE AND AROUND THE WORLD!
FIGHT THE POWER, AND TRANSFORM THE PEOPLE, FOR REVOLUTION!
May Day is the revolutionary internationalist holiday of the exploited and oppressed and all those who hate the world as it is and who are fighting for a different future. It's a day when our aspirations for the emancipation of all humanity are put front and center. On these slides are a selection of quotes from BAsics, from the talks and writings of Bob Avakian. Bob Avakian, "BA," is Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, and BAsics is a handbook for a new generation of revolutionaries.
This talk will be given in several major cities in May.

As scientists sound the alarm about the global environmental emergency... as millions in the poorest countries already face an unsustainable environmental hell... as the real potential of an uninhabitable planet emerges—Bob Avakian's work charts a radical break to a visionary and viable future. Based on this work, the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America provides a framework for a radically new society, including taking care of the environment while contributing to the revolutionary international process of eliminating all exploitation and oppression.
