Robert "Bob" Bruce Avakian (DOB: 03/07/43) is the founder and leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party (Revcoms), a Maoist group. Some left-wing groups who aren't as extreme consider the Revcoms to be a personality cult centered around Avakian. The Revcoms recently launched a pro-abortion group known as Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights. Avakian predates Antifa by several decades, but he's been a huge influencer of extreme-left ideology. He became involved with the radical Students for a Democratic Society in the '60s and later the Black Panthers. He's written many books and produced several movies including, "The Trump and Pence Regime Must Go! We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America" and "Why We Need an Actual Revolution and How We Can Really Make Revolution". Avakian was arrested in the '70s for burning an American flag. Avakian assaulted a police officer in 1979 and fled to France. He returned to the U.S. after the charges were dropped for some reason. He currently lives in NYC, possibly in Harlem.
