BAsics Bus Tour Delivers a Message to the World
Times Square, New York, Thursday July 26, 2012
The event: A revolutionary happening to deliver a message to the world: “American Lives Are Not More Important Than Other People’s Lives” BAsics 5:7; and
“Internationalism — The Whole World Comes First.” BAsics 5:8. With music, visuals.
The BAsics Bus Tour went to Times Square to let the people of the world know about BA and BAsics by delivering this much needed internationalist and liberating message — at a time when the American chauvinist “U.S.A. #1” bullshit is in high gear for the Summer Olympics; when the U.S. government is waging high tech wars, declaring their right to assassinate anyone anywhere around the world; when U.S. imperialism is destroying the ecology of the planet and causing unspeakable deprivation to peoples around the world; when immigrants coming to this country are being demonized as illegal.
Bob Avakian is a visionary communist thinker and revolutionary leader. He is the leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA.
Taking out revolution and internationalism at the International African Arts Festival, Brooklyn, NY on anti-July 4th
Hundreds of people strolled leisurely around this festival, in the sweltering summer heat, listening to African music, tasting African and Caribbean delicacies, and browsing jewelry, clothing, music cd’s, and African drums, in the multi-aisled outdoor marketplace. Vendors from West Africa, Barbados, Guyana, Senegal, the U.S. and many other countries brought their wares to sell. Some people traveled from their home countries to this five day festival. It was a colorful crowd with Muslim African women in traditional dress, Rastafarians, African Americans, and people of all nationalities.
In the midst of this, revolutionaries talked to people about BAsics, Revolution newspaper and the cards featuring quotes : "American Lives Are Not More Important Than Other People’s Lives.” BAsics 5:7 and “Internationalism—The Whole World Comes First.” BAsics 5:8.
