[For readers who are unfamiliar with SAFTU or the General Strike, see our previous, more comprehensive article on the topic] A planned general strike by the South African Federation of Trade Unions (SAFTU) and allies has begun, and by all accounts, it has the makings of a seismic blow to the moribund political establishment in […]

The South African Federation of Trade Unions (SAFTU) plans a nationwide general strike for April 25th, involving all its affiliates, to oppose years of neoliberal austerity measures from the ANC-led Tripartite Alliance, especially their intensification in recent months with the introduction of extreme anti-labor reforms that could see the minimum wage virtually abolished. The strike […]

  [This letter was originally published at Pambazuka News, dated July 12, 2017, in response to an invitation extended by the SACP to the South African Federation of Trade Unions (SAFTU) to attend their National Congress. SAFTU, after careful consideration, declined their invitation on the grounds that they had participated in a long series of […]

In this episode of On Mass Mubarak discusses the dynamics and implications of the movie “Black Panther” and the contours of Black liberation. Neither the On Mass podcast nor its producer have any connection to Anti-Imperialism.org, but we support their endeavor and hope to see many more creative projects of this type spring up.

[This speech was first given at the first International Silva Conference for the Protection of the Trees and Forests in Paris. It has been since been disseminated by revolutionaries through many means as a way to underscore the necessity of social revolution and an environmental focus. Now more than ever this speech is necessary to […]

In the First World especially, the vision of housing in the future has increasingly tended toward the small, “minimalist” and often recycled homes that we see advertised in science and innovation magazines. So-called pod homes, shipping container houses, modular flats and even recycled water pipes have become not only a vision of life in the […]

Undoing the historic land reform initiated by ZANU-PF in 2000, Zimbabwe’s new administration, under the leadership of Emmerson Mnangagwa, has returned seized land to the the first white farmer in a process he hopes will restore Zimbabwe’s agricultural success. Robert Smart and his son Darryn returned to their former farm about 200 kilometers east of […]

It is Thanksgiving day in the united $tates, and among celebrations of imperial plenty, we must look to remind people at whose expense this country and its treasures were won. We should ask ourselves the very difficult question: How do we get what we have? The holiday itself is already steeped in an unsavory, genocidal history […]

[Originally published in Notes from a New Afrikan P.O.W. Journal, Book 7, in 1981, and republished in Meditations on Frantz Fanon’s Wretched of the Earth in 2010, this article represents something absolutely fundamental to any relevant theory of revolution against colonialism in north amerika. It is required reading for any principled anti-imperialist, and is representative […]

A little over a month ago, in a room of uniformed military commanders and the press eager to catch a glimpse of the new presidential aesthetic, Trump referred boastfully to a “calm before the storm” that their meeting represented. Characteristically coy, and perhaps uncharacteristically restrained, Trump bid the press wait and see what would happen. […]

[This post will update periodically, check back for latest developments and commentary from Anti-Imperialism] 4:12am: President Mugabe is apparently under house arrest, and sacked former vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa is back in the country from self-imposed exile. Reuters claims to have leaked intelligence documents stating that Mnangagwa wishes to invite the white farmers and business owners […]

In the Free State province of South Afrika the local government has officially inaugurated two statues dedicated to the communist and anti-imperialist fighters against colonialism in Afrika and the world. Oliver Tambo, the former president of the ANC between 1967 and 1991, engaged in direct, hostile opposition to the colonial apartheid regime in conjunction with […]

[This open letter, authored by Zizi Kodwa, marks the 100-year anniversary of the birth of Oliver Tambo (the former president of the ANC) serves to summarize and criticize the deep corruption that now exists within the party. We feel that the points of this letter are profoundly important and must be grappled with. The following […]

It has been 50 years since Che Guevara was murdered by the CIA and their accomplices in Bolivia. Among the wretched allies of the west was Klaus Barbie, the famous Nazi responsible for anti-partisan operations during WWII and for the mass murder of Jews and Communists in France, of course history makes no mention of […]

Against “Democratic Socialism” In a somewhat recent article in New Republic entitled “The Socialism America Needs Now,” there is a renewed discussion being launched over the future of “socialism” in the united $tates, and how one should continue to pursue socialist revolution from within the framework offered by the liberal establishment. Naturally, this article rejects Marxist-Leninist […]

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 […]
