The imperialist media has played the principal role in the ballooning moral drama following the murder and apparent dismemberment of Jamal Khashoggi, a contributing journalist for the Washington Post, by the Saudi state. The seemingly endless propaganda drive for “justice” has once again exposed contradictions within imperialist state, putting Trump’s party and regime in a […]

With the deadline for negotiations on a british departure from the e.u. fast approaching, the reality of a “no deal” brexit is becoming increasingly likely. This would have a number of serious consequences, not least of which is the future of the british colonial holding in Northern Ireland. At the moment the current open-border policy […]

Throughout the turbulent bend in the trajectory of the people’s war in India, many territories firmly held by the Communist Party of India (Maoist) were violently returned to the hands of the corrupt Indian state. The temporary return of “peace” to these areas, however, is no consolation to the masses of people who occupy them. […]

[The following statement was made by the Communist Party of Venezuela (PCV) concerning the development of class struggle in Venezuela and internal struggle within the Bolivarian movement.

With all the charm lacking in the leadership of the western imperialists, and in genuine concern for peace, comrade Kim Jong-un crossed the small concrete block that separates North and South to greet the ROK President, Moon Jae-in. It was clear from the very start that, despite the fact the conference has thus far been […]

[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 […]

It has been almost two years since the success of the british nationalists in the Brexit vote. Where have they gone? Nationalism, although still a simmering threat throughout the First World, seems to have been defeated, at least temporarily, in britain, not by organized anti-fascism and a strong working class movement, but by their own […]

Contrary to popular belief, the social-imperialist Brezhnev regime in the USSR, standing in Khrushchev’s tradition, was not simply accepted by the Soviet population, even less so by Soviet workers. The early 70’s were marked by a marked increase in the number of dissenting socialist publications, poems and even large-scale strikes that were crushed in true […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

[With the recent renewed interest in Settlers, as well as the release from u.$. interment of the great Oscar López Rivera, we thought it might be prudent to provide our readers with a choice tidbit from the book in question. As the revisionists and the imperial left, devoid of real solidarity, decry the treatment of […]

[What follows is excerpted from WEB Du Bois’ ‘Marxism and the Negro Problem’, published in The Crisis, 1933, and elucidates Du Bois’ thought regarding the vicious tactics of the aristocracy of labor among the whites, and his rejection of false consciousness as a throwaway excuse for what is actually the interest of the settler working classes, who […]

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.

[Written by W.E.B. Du Bois for The Atlantic Monthly of May 1915, the following, ‘The African Roots of War’, (edited for length and relevancy to the modern reader) explores not only the root of European inter-imperialist rivalry and war, but the type of state—one born of an uneasy partnership between labor and capital—that the parasitic […]

By J. Alexander & Sarah E.
