The following is written by Enaemaehkiw Túpac Keshena on the blog Onkwehón:we Rising. The blog is “a revolutionary pan-onkwehón:we (indigenous) nationalist project.” It has a valuable analysis of issues of indigenous national liberation from a Third Worldist perspective. Which is important in that the settler Left in the First World countries often than not ignore […]

By Zak Brown While most recognize the existence of imperialism, many are unwilling to understand the accompanying processes. One of these processes, one that we have fought hard to reassert, is what we call imperialist rent: the way in which First World (core) wages/income/etc. are appropriated from Third World (periphery) exploitation. To provide evidence for […]

From Monthly Review Zine: The ambush on May 25 by Maoist guerrillas in the Darba Ghati valley (in the Sukma area of the Bastar region in southern Chhattisgarh), 345 kms south of the state capital of Raipur, of a convoy of provincial Congress Party leaders has shocked the Indian state apparatus.  The Z-plus and other […]

Generally, we are not interested in posting any and all testimonials regarding the personal adoption of Maoist (Third-Worldist) analysis. However, this recent article, posted at Gonzo Times by one of their former writers, is exceptional in countering some of the criticisms leveled against Maoism (Third-Worldism). In addition, we congratulate the author of this piece for their bold, […]

In light of the recent news of the declining health of Nelson Mandela, a leader and symbol of the South African liberation struggle, it is also a time to remember the anniversary of Cuito Cuanavale. It was a major battle in the war for liberation of Angola. Cuba showed revolutionary internationalism in practice when it […]

The Uzbekistan government recently banned “meaningless” music that fails to “praise the motherland.” Certainly, pop music is extremely self-absorbed and appears superficial, a characteristic reflective of late capitalist-imperialism. The ban on pop music may be, according to some, an appropriate response to protect the cultural sovereignty of Uzbekistan. According to this perspective, the ban on […]

John Foran’s book, ‘Taking Power: On the Origins of Third World Revolutions’ is part of our recommended readings list.

In one of their most brazen attacks this year, the Communist Party of Indian (Maoist) attacked a Congress Party convoy traveling in Chhattisgarh on Saturday, May 25th, killing top Party leader Mahendra Karma. Karma and around twenty other Congress Party members were killed after Maoist forces, also known as Naxalites, ambushed their vehicles around 5:30 […]

Note: I apologize to the reader for the extensive use of quotations in this article, but they are necessary as most of the Rothbardian critique is a misrepresentation of Marxian arguments which require textual evidence to be refuted. “[Marx] created a veritable tissue of fallacies. Every single nodal point of the theory is wrong and […]

Being that today is Malcolm X’s birthday, I thought it was incumbent upon me to share these reflections. First and foremost, I think it’s necessary that I explain why I, as a “white man,” a euro-amerikan, feel such a profound reverence for Malcolm, someone who said to be a “black militant” and accused of being […]

In his book Imperialism, Lenin remarked: “The concentration of production; the monopolies arising therefrom; the merging or coalescence of the banks with industry – such is the history of the rise of finance capital and such is the content of that concept”. This quote encapsulates the dynamic of capitalism in the past century and is […]

This past week, a milestone was reached in human impact on the environment. Carbon levels in the atmosphere exceeded the 400 parts per million level. According to a report from National Geographic: “The last time the concentration of Earth’s main greenhouse gas reached this mark, horses and camels lived in the high Arctic. Seas were […]

The U.S. has recently set up a permanent drone base in the west African country of Niger, as well as deployed at least 100 troops to this country for logistical support. This has been done to assist French imperialists and their neocolonial African puppets in their intervention in Mali. The establishment of this base shows […]

Anti-Imperialism.com and its associates have consistently opposed imperialist meddling in countries such as Libya and Syria and struggled against ‘left-wing’ supporters of imperialist intervention. Recently, Third Worldist comrades in Denver took the time to attend a local meeting of the International Socialist Organization. The goal was simple: to discredit the ISO’s position of so-called support […]

By Prince Kapone The current crisis of neoliberal capitalism has given rise to much resistance across the world, from the Occupy Wall Street movement in the U.S. to the political revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa. As capitalist regimes everywhere impose austerity measures on their populations, reducing the capitalist state to nothing more […]

The news of the recent passing of Hugo Chavez has swept through nominally leftist circles over the past week. Due to his leading stature in contemporary anti-hegemonic struggles, many organizations and websites (including Anti-Imperialism.com) posted commemorations. Now that the news has settled, Chavez’s death affords and demands a discussion on various aspects of the revolutionary […]

On March 5, 2013 Hugo Chavez, the president of Venezuela, passed away after a two year battle with cancer. Chavez will be remembered as a leader who was created by the conditions of Venezuela at the time, one who was created by the peoples struggles for justice. He was an anti-imperialist who stood up to […]

Given the recent track record in Libya and Egypt, women in Syria are increasingly aware of what is at stake in the struggle against imperialist-backed Islamists. Rather than submit to the dual oppression of imperialist-enforced patriarchy, these women are fighting back.

The recent intervention in Mali and Algeria by the French imperialists is linked to the recent NATO  destruction of Libya, past actions that led to the creation of AFRICOM and the weakening of the African Union, and current efforts by Western powers to increase their military, political and economic presence in Africa as a whole.  […]

A comrade directed me to a new blog, Notes From Aztlán, a blog dedicated to Chicano national liberation.  I would recommend checking it out.  Among its posts is one about the story of Ricardo Chavez-Ortiz.  The short history of Chavez-Ortiz is this:  An unemployed Chicano restaurant worker hijacked a plane in 1972, with his only […]
