The Revolutionary Communist Party, USA (RCP, USA) or RevCom is a political party in the United States led by Bob Avakian, the Chairman of the RCP, USA since its founding in 1975. The party organizes for a communist revolution.

Avakian's new synthesis of communism[2] is the RCP's ideological and political foundation and framework. In the 1980s and 1990s, the RCP was a part of the now-defunct Revolutionary Internationalist Movement, an international grouping of Maoist parties. The RIM published A World to Win news service from 1981 to 2006, but since its dissolution the publication is now updated on the Revcom website. The Communist Party of Iran (Marxist–Leninist–Maoist), an affiliated organization, endorsed and upholds the New Synthesis. During this time, the RCP mounted the October 22 Coalition to End Police Brutality. In 2005, party member Sunsara Taylor formed the anti-war group The World Can't Wait[3] in response to the U.S. invasion of Iraq. In 2012, she led the group Stop Patriarchy, a coalition to end "the enslavement and degradation of women".[4] The RCP's national spokesperson Carl Dix co-initiated The Stop Mass Incarceration Network in 2014 with Dr. Cornel West[5] to end "the slow genocide"[6] of police brutality and the prison system. Later that year, Cornel West and Bob Avakian took part in a filmed discussion on "Religion and Revolution".[7]

Origins[edit]

In the 1960s Avakian, along with H. Bruce Franklin and Stephen Charles Hamilton[8] formed the Bay Area Revolutionary Union, which was subsequently able to absorb a series of similar local collectives which had developed out of Students for a Democratic Society. The new nationwide structure allowed BARU to change its name to simply the Revolutionary Union. The RCP claims that of the various groups coming out of SDS, it was the first to seriously attempt to develop itself both at the theoretical level, with the publication of "Red Papers 1".[9] This turn to 1970s "point of production" organizing was a broader phenomenon which was expanded throughout the Midwest and into the Appalachian coal fields during the wildcat upsurges[10][unreliable source?] through 1980.[original research?] In 1971 H. Bruce and Jane Franklin led a section of the RU to fuse with the Venceremos Organization, advocating immediate urban guerrilla warfare and then dissolving shortly thereafter. Tensions over this "workerist" tendency came to a head within the RCP in 1977 around whether China remained a communist country after the death of Mao Zedong and subsequent leadership struggles in China between the Gang of Four and Hua Guofeng. Avakian declared that there had been a coup in China following Mao's death and the new Chinese leadership was taking China on a capitalist road. The RCP's Vice Chairman, Mickey Jarvis, along with an estimated 30–40% of the membership and most of the Revolutionary Student Brigade formally left the RCP to form the Revolutionary Workers Headquarters.[citation needed]

Avakian's leadership[edit]

The RCP has said that there are two mainstays of its work: the role of the party press and building a culture of "appreciation, promotion and popularization" of Bob Avakian and his body of work, method and approach, "along with a whole ensemble of Communist work which is necessary to the bringing forward of a revolutionary people—including building "massive political resistance to the main ways in which, at any given time, the exploitative and oppressive nature of this system is concentrated in the policies and actions of the ruling class and its institutions and agencies" and solving the problems of how to involve the masses in "meaningful revolutionary work".[11]

A number of groups and others have charged that the RCP has created a cult of personality around Avakian, with dissenting voices that split from and around the organization.[12] The RCP has been open about the split and why. One, represented by the "official" line of the party and concentrated in the new synthesis Avakian was championing, and expressed in the party's newspaper (the Revolutionary Worker, now Revolution). The other, opposed the new synthesis and revolutionary-communist line, was becoming predominant on all levels of the party and "objectively, [this] amounted to abandoning the outlook and aims of the communist revolution, accommodating to the system of imperialism and settling for, at most, reforms within this horrific system".[13]

RCP today[edit]

The Revolutionary Communist Party organizes for a communist revolution. As a part of this effort, they have united with different people and organizations demand that the "Trump-Pence Regime Must go, Nov 4th It begins".[14] The organization releases daily update online and a periodic print edition of its newspaper, Revolution (formerly called Revolutionary Worker, 1979–2005) which is published in English and Spanish and has been published continuously since 1979.

In December 2016, party members and others issued a statement in support of Refuse Fascism, a coalition group opposed to the presidency of Donald Trump.[15] The statement was used by Infowars and other far-right conspiracy theory websites to claim that RCP and Refuse Fascism were organizing a military overthrow of the US government on November 4, 2017.[16] Several anti-Trump protest marches were organized for that day, which passed without incident.[17][18]
