MAY DAY CELEBRATION

For the people of the world, this moment crackles with both danger and
opportunity!

This moment calls for the most energetic, massive, fearless opposition
possible. And it calls for the most determined forces to take up the
revolutionary road, to help wrench a whole different future out of the
crisis and madness of today.

On this May Day, the revolutionary holiday of the international working
class, join us at an extraordinary event which will feature:

*** A preview clip of a video which will give for the first time, an
opening glimpse of a recent talk by Bob Avakian, Chairman of the
Revolutionary Communist Party, USA (RCP), “REVOLUTION: Why It’s Necessary,
Why It’s Possible, What It’s All About.” What could more openly defy the
official verdicts of our times? For over a decade the lies have been
hammered home at us: that revolution is “impossible,” that communism is “a
failure,” and that vanguard parties only lead to new oppression. We are all
supposed to lower our sights - and accept lives of resignation and
desperation. What Avakian provides, here in this talk, is an answer to all
this - a living link between the intense challenges we face at this moment
and a vivid, realistic vision of a radically different world. What could be
more uplifting and needed?

This event will also be a celebration of:

* The 25th Anniversary of the Revolutionary Worker newspaper
(http://www.rwor.org.) For 25 years, the Revolutionary Worker has nurtured the
dreams of revolution here in the nerve center of capitalism. It has trained
a new generation of revolutionary activists and leaders. It has championed
the oppressed and the visionary. All this work, over a quarter of a
century, has brought us to this moment, when this newspaper is posed to play
a crucial role in the events that will now unfold.

* The 20th anniversary of the formation of the Revolutionary
Internationalist Movement (RIM) (http://www.rwor.org/a/rwlink/links.htm.) Over two
decades – while capitalism has declared itself triumphant, and the U.S.
declared itself all-powerful – the RIM has gathered together
Marxist-Leninist-Maoist parties and organizations around the world, and
struggled to forge the basis for a new communist international.
