Who is Bob Avakian?

What is he saying is the problem and the solution for the horrible mess the world is in now?

And why is he and this movement for revolution coming under attack now?

This is a time of searing crisis: the overturning of Roe v. Wade is forcing women into motherhood, the destruction of the planet looms, violent murder by police of Black youth continues, immigrants are hounded at the border, and war heats up around the globe.

In this time when questions of what kind of future for humanity come to the fore, we are also seeing a series of attacks on the movement for revolution, particularly focused on vicious and slanderous attacks on Bob Avakian.

From the 7/18/22 article:

"Last week, three very different news outlets—the Daily Beast, The Intercept, and the Daily Caller—launched three very similar attacks on Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights, the Revcoms and Bob Avakian. The Daily Beast is a mainstream liberal outlet; The Intercept is more of a so-called “progressive” one; and the Daily Caller is straight-up fascist. Yet each had the scare phrase “communist cult,” or words to that effect, in the headline. Each repeated baseless, libelous and potentially very dangerous charges against Bob Avakian, as well as Sunsara Taylor, who co-initiated Rise Up and is a follower of Bob Avakian."

"At a time of sharp change—one way or the other, reactionary and murderous or revolutionary and emancipating—leadership is decisive. It should be very clear that not only those who have carved out a little niche in this society, but infinitely more so those who run this society would feel threatened by leadership that did have a revolutionary orientation, a viable strategy for an actual revolution and a compelling vision of what comes next, a method for people to understand and transform society, and a bone-deep feeling for the people themselves. That leadership is Bob Avakian."
