REVERBERATING ACROSS THE COUNTRY

Repost for Revolution
ANNOUNCING THE BASICS BUS TOUR,
JOIN US FOR A SEND-OFF CELEBRATION FOR VOLUNTEERS
GOING ON THE BAsics BUS TOUR FROM THE Chicago AREA
Thursday, July 12, 7-8:30pm @ Revolution Books

KICKING OFF FROM NEW YORK CITY   
REVERBERATING ACROSS THE COUNTRY
 Be Part of Taking the BAsics Bus Tour Higher

People have begun to volunteer and teams are beginning to be assembled to build for this leg of the tour. But in order to make this tour happen, and for it to reverberate across the country-many hundreds need to be involved nationally and in NY itself. $50,000 is needed to have a real impact-in this region... and across the country. The situation in the world is demanding that people know about Avakian's work, andhave a chance to be part of the movement to bring a radically different world into being. This is a crying need-and if we are able to reach out far and wide, tap into the inspiration and excitement (see the statements of support at basicsbustour.tumblr.com) that the boldness of this bus tour has garnered, and organize cores of people to come together and raise the funds in broad and creative ways-this can be made possible.
