Less than a week ago it was reported that several gold miners in Brazil are now under investigation by federal prosecutors for the massacre of 10 people from an uncontacted indigenous community deep in the Amazon rainforest. The men reportedly bragged about having murdered them and cut up their bodies before disposing them in a […]

“We are who we pretend to be, so we must be careful who we pretend to be.” —Kurt Vonnegut It has been noted by members of the Alt-Right as well as those in the liberal media the strange tendency for the veil of irony to provide a perfect cover for the incubation of ultra-reactionary ideas. […]

amerikans cannot escape the opioid epidemic—whether wealthy white families from Maine to the Midwest, or the gas station employee who stumbles on an overdose in the bathroom every other week. It is the most talked-about crisis since Uncle Sam, prince-elector of misery, elevated Freeway Rick to the imperial seat of the crack game; and it […]

It has been a little over 10 years since the formation of the Revolutionary Anti-Imperialist Movement as an independent organization, and the creation of Anti-Imperialism as its official media organ. Since then, the global political landscape has changed radically through the deepening crisis in capitalism-imperialism and rising political currents. It would have been hard to […]

According to a new report, compiled by “greenpeace” from various studies on air pollutants and resultant diseases, air pollution in India is responsible for more than 1.2 million premature deaths annually. India ranks with China as having the worst air quality in the world, choked with pollutants in many regions by the heavy industry that […]

[The following was taken from Towards a New Dawn, an left-wing Indian publication in support of the CPI(Maoist), on December 24, 2012 and has been edited for readability. This article is important because it highlights a few of the major failures of the contemporary petty bourgeois struggle against sexual violence. First by analyzing the misogynist inconsistencies […]

It has been nearly a month since the action at Charlottesville shook the political terrain in the united $tates. Without a doubt we will be spending many more months unpacking the serious consequences of the events as they unfolded, and the new situation we are faced with. Many have already issued statements, analyses and criticisms, […]

It is an unfortunately common thought within the timeline of communist movements that a focus on individual advantages of workers could lead to “fair production and distribution” in a socialist society. Prominent revolutionaries, who are lost to a path of revisionism greet us at every turn. Liu Shaoqi, Deng Xiaoping or Nikita Khrushchev; just to […]

First-Worldists are not wrong when they say that the world-kleptocracy runs on the esteem for the world’s richest minority. Like clean drinking water, democracy is a privilege which most of the world has no genuine access to. So while various Third World democracies (which exist nominally all over the world) allow the capable portions of […]

[Originally published in Sotsial-Demokrat no. 43, July 26, 1915, this article is of vital importance even today. Revolutionary defeatism, or the willingness of revolutionaries to not only wish defeat of their own imperialist government in times of reactionary warfare, but assist in that defeat by whatever measure is possible under the current circumstances. Now more […]

Within a month of one another, the amerikans and the Taliban fixed their positions in preparation for a new phase of the struggle in Afghanistan. On August 15th, Taliban released an open letter declaring that the precondition for the resumption of peace-talks and a hopeful ceasefire is the withdrawal of all amerikan forces from the […]

  [Originally published on Kersplebedeb.com, the following piece is an attempt to unpack the very broad history of anti-imperialism and criticize the various dead-ends which have come about in the latter half of the 20th century until today. The article accurately sums up some of the most important lessons learned from the last century of […]

Liberal pundits, in an attempt to discredit Trump’s plan to seal off the country to new waves of Third World immigration, like to think they’re clever when posing the question of what amerika would do without immigrants. Of course, this question is put almost as if they truly believe it is a humanitarian and empathetic […]

[The following article was originally posted by Union del Barrio, a Communist and Chican@ nationalist and organization based primarily in occupied Aztlan that works toward a unity of interests between the proletariat of both Mexico and the submerged Chican@ nation in the united $tates.]   Since it was imposed in 1994, NAFTA destroyed the Mexican […]

A new poll released by the Chicago Council of Global Affairs (CCGA) shows that a majority of amerikans now support an armed intervention on the Korean peninsula if the DPRK were to strike the south. This comes after months of heightened tension in which the united $tates has unsuccessfully attempted to bully the DPRK into […]

In 1915 a plan was circulated to begin an uprising in February of that year to throw off white rule. Ambitious, internationalist and bursting with the hopes of a submerged nation, the manifesto called for retaking the states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and California, to proclaim them a separate Chican@ republic, to restore […]

The Battle of Algiers is an incredible film; as astonishing to viewers today as it was over 50 years ago. This is not intended to be a film review, however. There are plenty of anti-imperialist and communist reviews of the film already. Rather, there is one scene in the film that has a particular importance […]

Trump has once again coaxed “civically conscious” liberals into putting on a passion play of imperialist propaganda, to, in effect, “show Trump how imperialism is really done.” Every time Trump produces one of these sideshows (you can practically set your watch by these types of distractions from his flailing administration) the imperial left responds with […]

If there’s a God, he waited too goddamn long. u.$. eques, and Grand Ole Man of the carpet bombing, John McCain, has been diagnosed with (hopefully terminal) cancer. The Butcher of Belgrade, the Crown Prince of Kabul, the Benefactor of Baghdad, the plutocratic/plutonium pencil-pusher extraordinaire, who has for decades appropriated monies for, cheered at, and […]
