Getting Beyond This World of Horrors
A Presentation and Exchange on the New Communism developed by Bob Avakian

Held June 5, 2017 at UCLA.

At a dangerous time for humanity...with the serious threat of a fascist America...there is an even greater need for the work of The Bob Avakian Institute to have impact and reach now. Invite a speaker from The BA Institute. Make a generous contribution.

In light of the current juncture we strongly encourage people to get into these two pieces by Bob Avakian that shed a great deal of light on the roots, dynamics and challenges of Trump's program for a fascist America:

“The Truth About Right-Wing Conspiracy… And Why Clinton and the Democrats Are No Answer”

“The Fascists and the Destruction of the 'Weimar Republic'...And What Will Replace It”

If you agree with its mission and want to see it fulfilled ... Become A Friend of

Contribute to Get THE NEW COMMUNISM Everywhere, Including Into the Hands of Those Catching the Most Hell.

An appeal from a former prisoner who is now an emancipator of humanity: 

"I myself have been caught up in all the dangerous, life-stealing shit that goes on among Black and Brown people and continues even after having been captured and thrown behind prison walls. Internalized all the bad things that were said about people like me, I did the harmful things that makes people fearful of us down here. I changed because I engaged Bob Avakian. I changed because rather than fear or feel sorry for people like me, BA saw our revolutionary potential and has been fighting to get us to rise to meet that potential, and I changed because people donated money to help get the works of BA into my hands. If you want to see the people this system has no future for other than prison or an early death come forward in the fight to remake the world, then you have to help get THE NEW COMMUNISM into their hands." Read the whole letter.


During a recent event at Revolution Books in Harlem a patron presented reservations about a revolution, citing Malcolm X and that it would be bloody.  This is an issue that Bob Avakian, as always, meets head on without equivocation in his latest book The New Communism.  “You don’t make a revolution without tremendous sacrifice,” Avakian writes.   Read more
