Friday, following the sentencing of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán to life imprisonment by u.$. authorities, Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) opined on what he saw as an “inhumane” decision. It is also a tragic life to have a family and not be able to see it, maybe this is not life, and when […]

On February 25th the high court in Mumbai granted bail to comrade Ajith, a prominent member of the Communist Party of India (Maoist), after being held for nearly 4 years on charges related to “objectionable material” found at his residence. However, the court swiftly imposed a delay on his release to allow the so-called “Anti-Terrorism” […]

In response to the u.$. recognition of the treacherous comprador Juan Guaido, the president of the equally treacherous national assembly, as the “legitimate” president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro has moved to cut all diplomatic ties with them. The international response further exposes the sharpening contradictions in the world, where old alliances are now being forsaken […]

By way of an order issued December 19th to his cabinet and staff, Trump has called for a “full and rapid” withdrawal of amerikan troops in Syria, stating “[w]e have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency.” This has caused an uproar among legislators and the brass, who […]

Falling short of its supposed purpose of honoring peace and abhorring war, They Shall Not Grow Old confuses audiences with a face-value acceptance of the most generic recountings of british soldiers ultimately in favor of the war. The film itself should be regarded as squalid propaganda, and while a bit more self-aware than the likes […]

The Yellow Vest protests, which have rocked France from the Île to the coasts since November, have experienced a second wind after a series of small concessions by the Macron government were deemed insufficient. The initial impetus for the demonstrations were of course the Macron government’s significant fuel tax and inspection fee increases, but beyond […]

Most readers will not, by now, require a recapitulation of the condition and origins of the so-called ‘migrant caravan’ currently stalled in Mexico. If so, one might begin here, here, and here. What we seek to do is clarify the class-nature of the crisis, the enemy, and the position of the proletarian camp. Like most […]

The NYPD is recalling nearly 3000 body cameras used by New York pigs after an apparent malfunction caused one to combust. Boot-licking bureaucrats wasted no time in releasing a statement on the “paramount importance” placed on officer safety, and that they would immediately recall all bodycams from the particular manufacturer. They say it is purely […]

[Alfie Hancox is a Masters of Research student investigating the politics of gender, sexuality and race on the British far left. He is interested in recovering theory linking diverse social movements with an anti-imperialist political economy.] By Alfie Hancox Fifty years ago, in 1968, the capitalist world-system was shaken by an eclectic outpouring of revolutionary […]

In a reversal stunning absolutely no one, neoliberal ideologue Francis Fukuyama has abandoned that thoroughly sunken ship known as the “end of history” thesis, presumably after shutting off the lights and donning a snorkel. The series of half-hearted defenses of his almost 30-year-wrong position, which were really just half-hearted disavowals, were issued in a recent […]

PDF – China: A Modern Social-Imperialist Power In May of 2017, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of India (Maoist) initiated a study posing the question of whether China had or had not become a new imperialist power. The resulting report answers in the affirmative: In the view of the CPI(Maoist), the People’s Republic of […]

Two nights ago Brazil suffered the tragic loss of more than 200 years of work collecting, studying and presenting the history of the country and its many peoples. A fire engulfed the National Museum, home to more than 20 million artifacts, including a 12,000 year-old human skull, the oldest human remains found in Brazil. The […]

Seven years after formally ceasing operations, the u.$. navy’s 2nd fleet has been reactivated and ordered to the northern Atlantic as a means of confronting “bad actors” they believe hostile to imperialist interests. It is more than obvious these “actors” are in fact one actor—Russia. This is riding a high-tide of inter-imperialist tension and rivalry […]

Some time has passed since our last update, but the war has not been put on hold. The u.$. imperialists have continued their campaign of murder and theft against the Afghan people, and have met with stiffer resistance as a result. The “forever war” drags on, despite the supposed “absolute superiority” of the amerikan military, […]

Originating out of the class conflicts in the capitalist economies of the imperialist core of the late 19th century, the labor aristocracy has become the most significant variable in contemporary class analysis. It is the most important aspect of any serious study of the nature and hierarchy of classes in our present world. In its […]
