BA on BA

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)

"…It was like there was magic in the air. It was one of the most hopeful things that I’ve seen in a very long time. I think it was historic in many different dimensions: in terms of the topic that was approached; the people who were involved in it, the two speakers; the moment in time. I felt like I was able to see a great demonstration of morality and conscience applied to dealing with the problems of humanity—that both speakers stood out this way…"

Everyone’s contribution is needed
and every contribution will matter

Giving generously to REVOLUTION AND RELIGION will give huge numbers of people the chance to experience Bob Avakian through this film up close—digging into why revolution is necessary, possible, and can bring about a radically new world, and to see BA and Cornel West deeply wrestle with one of the biggest questions facing humanity today. They model a morality that refuses to accept injustice, that pours heart and soul into standing together for a radically new and different world. Every donation contributes to spreading this ethos that is so urgently needed.

Donate to beginning major promotion:

  • Online social media and website advertising to promote watching the film! ... with a focus on youth and students
  • Saturating key areas with promotional palm cards, posters, and selective advertising in major cities
  • Subsidizing distribution of the DVD and showings of the film in schools, neighborhoods, and to groups working on key social initiatives.

EVERYONE can raise funds: from bake sales and tamale sales in the neighborhoods to several-hundred-dollar donations from professionals to several-thousand-dollar donations from those with more money. Everyone who is learning about this film or about Bob Avakian for the first time, everyone who has been active in the movement for revolution for some time, every BA Everywhere Committee that is dedicated to raising funds to making the work and leadership of BA known everywhere... Everyone. Here are some basic ideas for how to raise funds:

  • Do a fundraising project with a group of people in a neighborhood, school, or at your job. WATCH the film together, to give people a vibrant sense of what this is all about and invite them to participate. See this letter from a group of people doing a “Baking for BA Everywhere” project for what this can be like: “Baking Project Challenge: Raise Funds for the Film of the Cornel West & Bob Avakian Dialogue!
  • Ask people you already know to donate. And, everywhere you go to spread the word about the film launch, ask people you are meeting to donate or to sit down with you to discuss giving.
  • Ask people who are donating to tell you why. Record their statements (video or audio), or write them down. Ask people to write on a whiteboard or 8.5"x11" piece of paper: “Why I Am Donating to the Film REVOLUTION AND RELIGION: The Fight for Emancipation and the Role of Religion; CORNEL WEST & BOB AVAKIAN and circulate pictures of themselves and their statements on their own social media. And, send in people’s pictures and their recorded comments to for a “Why I Am Donating” page that everyone can learn from.

Be in touch with the national BA Everywhere campaign for help and to share experience. Email to We’ll post correspondence so that everyone can learn from our collective experience. This will help launch this film so 10s of 1000s can see it!

Look, we've got this leader...
