Updated: 200 Books for Revolution Books!

Welcome to the campaign to fund 200 new books for Revolution Books! YOU are invited to be part of an exciting and urgent campaign to raise $5000 for new books.

Oct24_March_OscarDiaz_IMG_0262_cropped-600The times are changing…and our current stock of books has not kept up with the needs of these changing times. There’s a new spirit of resistance spreading across the country – from the thousands who recently poured into the streets of New York City for “Rise Up October” to stop police terror, to the ongoing and intensifying outrages of from attacks on women’s rights, to the living hell for millions of people in Syria, Gaza, and beyond. Big questions are being posed about the future of humanity and the planet. Revolution Books is marked by a morality and strategic approach to fighting for a world that will overcome all forms of exploitation and oppression… grounded in the re-envisioned communism of Bob Avakian, and with big arms to engage the wide spheres of cultural and intellectual life that must be a part of fighting for this new world. All this makes it an urgent necessity for Revolution Books to dramatically increase the number and variety of books we have available.

In particular, we want to provide current, important books on the topics of: the oppression and struggle of Black and other People of Color, the LGBTQ community, and women; revolutionary theory; the environment; Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East; fiction; science, and more.

We are a bookstore about the world… for a whole new world. On that foundation, we are compiling an initial wish list of books, but we would also like to hear from you about your book suggestions.

In addition to our desperate need to increase the number and variety of books we offer, some funds will go toward some much needed maintenance, repairs, and upgrades, including: weatherproofing; redoing the lighting; and getting a flat screen television for showing videos and live streaming.

What YOU can do Right Now:

• Start compiling lists of friends, family and people broadly in your circles and networks to whom to send out the online notices and to contact by phone once the campaign is launched on Wednesday. Social Media is KEY is this campaign: Facebook, Twitter, email, and other online communities.
• Make short videos or write statements of support for Revolution Books that can be used as part of this campaign and email them to us
• Think about how much YOU can contribute to this campaign, whether it’s $500 or $5, and spread the word everywhere you can.
* Keep up on the campaign at our website
