Support & Defend Revolution Books

On March 3, Fascist thugs attacked Revolution Books Berkeley threatening to BURN IT DOWN.  


Charlottesville...the Trump/Pence regime... the spectre of the torching of Bookstores... fascists are on the move.

Will we stand together to stop it? Everyone who values critical thinking and humanity needs to come together and act. And donating to Revolution Books will help expand the righteous and much needed work and reach of this important bookstore.

Revolution Books is the political, intellectual, and cultural center of a movement for an actual revolution to bring about at better world. 

At the heart of Revolution Books is the game changing breakthrough in scientifically understanding the world and the vision and strategy for that radically new society – to get beyond all forms of oppression and exploitation, a world where humanity could truly flourish: The New Communism developed by Bob Avakian.

RB has the books that matter, the critical discourse, and a connection to the movement for revolution. RB is a bookstore with literature, history, science, art, philosophy, and revolutionary theory....a place of discovery and engagement. Scientific and poetic, wrangling and visionary.

This, the fascists and reactionaries hate and seek to destroy.

This, all who care about the future must come together and defend.

Stand with Revolution Books by donating to strengthen and expand the work of this bookstore in the face of these attacks!

The funds we raise here will go to:

*Expand our selection of books, from revolutionary theory and science, to books which dig deep into the real history of this country, to fiction and poetry expressing the lives and experience of peoples around the world, their creativity and their humanity, and much much more. Your donations will enable the bookstore to order the best new titles from university and small presses, as well as keep our core literature well-stocked. 

*Develop an online store so that people have access to our selection of books no matter where they are.

*Promotional materials to spread the mission of the bookstore on campuses, into neighborhoods of the oppressed... Everywhere!

*Get booths at upcoming book festivals and conferences.

*Defray costs for the author talks, poetry nights, provocative panels, study classes and discussions that we host. In the past period we have sponsored and hosted dozens of unique events, from forums exposing fascism to talks on the new synthesis of communism, to bringing authors and scholars to talk about their work and discoveries in a wide range of fields.

*Special distribution of free literature to youth and low income people.

*Fees for screenings of documentaries and feature films at our store and on campus.

To get a deeper understanding of what we're facing with this regime, what must be done, and whether a better world is possible, we want to recommend a recent talk from Bob Avakian: THE TRUMP/PENCE REGIME MUST GO! In The Name of Humanity, We REFUSE To Accept a Fascist America, A Better World IS Possible .
