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 […]

Are hurricanes racist? It seems like a ridiculous question, but why is it that, no matter the type of natural disaster, it seems to always affect Third World countries far more significantly than First World ones? Certainly this has been most recently exemplified by the hugely destructive tropical cyclones that slam tropical and sub-tropical regions […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The frenchman is a strange creature. What can we say about it with any certainty? Some things we know for sure: It is highly xenophobic, belligerent, prone to attack without provocation, and exhibits very little awareness of irony, as evinced, for instance, by past anti-gay protests undertaken by strapping, shirtless young men. Having established at […]

Otto Warmbier, the amerikan student who was arrested for having stolen a poster while visiting North Korea, has become the subject of great (and hypocritical) debate. First, it must be noted that at the time of this article’s publication, there is yet no evidence to suggest that Otto Warmbier has been violently mistreated, or that […]

On Tuesday the president bestowed the power upon his satrap of defense, General Mattis, to set troop levels in Afghanistan. In response Thursday, Mattis has committed an additional 4,000 troops to the country to provide support for the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) in counter-insurgency operations to deal with the ever-growing Taliban forces. This comes, […]

In the wake of the Daesh-claimed attack in Tehran that left 17 innocents dead, the Trump creature let fly an uncharacteristic press statement on the attacks (uncharacteristic in that somebody wrote it for him, and it wasn’t a tweet), the sheer irony of which cannot be conveyed in words, but we’ll try. Concerning Iran, the […]

Under the leadership of the Taliban, the forces for national liberation in Afghanistan have launched a “spring offensive” in the north of the country, kicked off by an attack last month in Camp Shaheen which took the lives of more than 100 Afghan security personnel. This new offensive is being called “Operation Omari” in honor […]

As a u.$. Naval strike group stalks toward the peninsula, the imperialists, whipped into a frenzy by Trump’s long-expected turn to ravenous interventionism, have shown a single-minded determination to destroy People’s Korea. The imperialists have all but promised war unless the DPRK surrenders its sovereign right to self-defense. At this moment it seems that nobody, […]

[The following is a piece on the strategic space Islam occupies in the anti-imperialist terrain by the comrades of MIM(Prisons). An informative and scientific touching-off point to a larger conversation that is very much necessary among the western left especially. As always, the following is provided for the purposes of study and discussion.] In the […]

Alongside other big executive orders issued on Monday, Trump has reinstated the “Mexico City Policy” which prevents NGOs that receive federal funding from performing or educating women about abortion services. The policy, first enacted by Reagan in 1984, has been a back-and-forth issue throughout the administrations since its first passage. Republican presidents have all upheld […]

As ECOWAS troops entered the Gambia yesterday to depose long-time “strongman” Yahya Jammeh and install the ostensibly “democratically elected” commonwealth-loyal real-estate mogul Adama Barrow[1] one could be forgiven for seeing in this crisis the specter of the 2011 Ivorian crisis, wherein French and comprador troops entered Côte d’Ivoire to depose “strongman” Laurent Gbagbo and install […]

“I bid good-bye to the old century, may it rest in peace as it has lived in war. Of the new century I prophesy nothing except that it will see the decline of the British Empire. Other worse empires will rise perhaps in its place, but I shall not live to see the day. (…)” […]

[The following two articles by the Tatar Bolshevik Mirsaid Sultan-Galiev appeared in the official journal of the Narkomnats, Zhizn’ Natsional’nostei (Life of the Nationalities), in three parts in 1919, though only the latter two are reproduced here. In them, Sultan-Galiev criticizes the focus of the Comintern on the West, and further warns that a social […]
