BA EVERYWHERE - Update on mass campaign to raise big money to get BA's vision and works into every corner of society:
Succeeding with the goal: $23,000 by Monday, December 12 for the film Occasioned by BAsics: A Celebration of Revolution and the Vision of a New World ($8,779 to go!):
Last April in Harlem, a range of artists, musicians, dancers and actors came together from a diversity of perspectives in a unique cultural event On the Occasion of the Publication of BAsics: A Celebration of Revolution and the Vision of a New World. BAsics is a book of quotations and short essays from Bob Avakian, the revolutionary leader who has developed a new synthesis of communism. This event brought people together who hadn't shared a stage before, and a remarkable connection was forged between these artists and the hundreds in the audience that night...This film will tell the story of what those artists did and why they did it.

For everyone who has dreamed of a different and better world or wondered how art and culture can be part of creating it, this is a film that needs to be seen. But it won't be made without your support. Go to indiegogo.com/basicsevent now, watch the trailer and make a donation. Then ask others to do the same.
