About The Event

Open-Mic @ 7:30 at Revolution Books Bring your songs, your poems, your stories, your rage, your joy, and your hope for a liberated future without degradation and subjugation of women. The theme on this night: “You cannot break all the chains, except one. You cannot say you want to be free of exploitation and oppression, except you want to keep the oppression of women by men… The oppression of women is completely bound up with the division of society into masters and slaves, exploiters and exploited, and the ending of all such conditions is impossible without the complete liberation of women. All this is why women have a tremendous role to play not only in making revolution but in making sure there is all-the-way revolution. The fury of women can and must be fully unleashed as a mighty force for proletarian revolution.” – BAsics 3:22, Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party Earlier that evening, at 5:30 we will be doing a Speak-out at Union Square and at 6:45 we will snake dance through the streets to Revolution Books (146 W. 26th Street at 7th Avenue) for dinner and the open-mic at 7:30pm.

Revolution Books
At this bookstore, people can find the books, forums, and wrangling over history, politics, economics, science, art and culture— we confront the most burning questions facing humanity. And people can find a real way out of this hell: a movement for revolution is being nourished at Revolution Books. At its core is a new synthesis of communism developed by Bob Avakian based on summing up the positive and negative experience of the communist revolution so far and drawing from a broad range of human experience… A viable vision and a strategy for a radically new and much better society.

“Our mission is to challenge the new generation in particular to reject this culture of rape and pornography, to resist the shaming of women who have sex and/or abortions, to wage fierce cultural and political resistance to wake others up, and to celebrate, fight for, and win the full equality and liberation of women.”
