All Ways Closed to Fascism – Reportback from Carbondale Trump Caravan

Subcomandante Blanco On October 17, 2020, a group consisting of mostly out-of-town Trump supporters decided to descend upon our beautiful Carbondale in an attempt to terrorize our community. On October 17, 2020; we said no. “All reactionaries are paper tigers. In appearance, the reactionaries are terrifying, but in reality, they are not so powerful.

#EndSARS Protests Rock Nigeria and Diaspora

Comrade Toussaint Nigeria is a country with massive oil and mineral wealth, a developed technology sector, and a proliferation of billionaires such as Aliko Dangote. Yet, the masses of this country by and large do not benefit from any of this wealth due to the continued existence of comprador capitalism, the auctioning off of resources which rightfully belong to the people to foreign imperialist corporations headquartered in China, Japan, Europe and North America. The only big beneficiaries of this wealth are Nigerian compradors and foreign shareholders. The police in this country are much maligned and despised by the masses, like … Continue reading #EndSARS Protests Rock Nigeria and Diaspora

On the latest Anti-People cult

Comrade Andy If you are like any person, you have beliefs. One of the key aspects of being human is the ability to think complex thoughts, and give voice to them. You most likely have eclectic views, or believe in unproven things. The Marxist theory of dialectical materialism (diamat) teaches that objective right and wrong exists, however many people fall prey to metaphysics and idealism. Many more act on them. Beliefs are a very powerful thing, and drive our thinking, and action. Tight now, there is a rising belief that is extremely reactionary and extremely dangerous: QAnon. QAnon started on … Continue reading On the latest Anti-People cult

On the “Gun Control” Farce

Comrade Altair It’s a cycle that seems to recur every few years. Someone, somewhere in the United States commits a mass shooting. A few dozen people are killed, sometimes, including the shooter. In the wake of the violence, every news station across the country runs the story 24/7. The community mourns their deceased, and condemns the “senseless violence”. And every time, liberals will protest and lobby for stricter gun control measures, some even going so far as to call for a repeal of the Second Amendment. Upon seeing these protests, the State will respond by condemning the shooting, saying that … Continue reading On the “Gun Control” Farce

Trump COVID Diagnoses Exposes Nature of American Regime, Revolutionaries Must Become More Serious About Our Tasks and Rely Firmly on the Masses

Comrade Toussaint United States: The news received last Thursday that the President of the United States has COVID-19 has set off a storm of speculation and “Leftist” catharsis across social media. The two ruling class parties, the Democrats and Republicans, have been exposed even further as two sides of the same dirty coin. Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee for President, has been seen wishing the President well and has suspended so-called “negative” ads against Trump. Even the “Left” Democrats, represented by the centrist Bernie Sanders, have been calling for unity of Americans in light of Trump’s diagnosis. Trump himself appeared … Continue reading Trump COVID Diagnoses Exposes Nature of American Regime, Revolutionaries Must Become More Serious About Our Tasks and Rely Firmly on the Masses

Homeless in Charm City – Notes on Corruption and Waste

Comrades Carlo and Lee Capitalism does not seek to provide for everyone except those who own, and the evidence for that is never clearer than with the issue of homelessness. According to the Baltimore nonprofit, “Healthcare For The Homeless”, there are nearly 3,000 people houseless in our city, however these figures are debated. What we know concretely is that the city of Baltimore does not care about unhoused people nor does it intend to do anything about this persistent problem, which is directly tied to the continued existence of Capitalism-Imperialism. We arrived at this conclusion after a series of interviews … Continue reading Homeless in Charm City – Notes on Corruption and Waste

War Resumes Between Armenia and Azerbaijan: A Blow against the Masses in the Caucasus

Comrade Redbeard On September 27, 2020, the decades-long conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan erupted once again into open violence.* From 1988-1994, the two countries fought a bloody war that took the lives of tens of thousands, and displaced well over a million people on both sides. The flashpoint of the conflict was (and still remains) the land of Nagorny-Karabakh, an area largely populated by ethnic Armenians. When the Soviet Union began to collapse, territorial/ethnic disputes largely repressed since the 1920s came back to the surface, and by the time Nagorny-Karabakh, otherwise known as the Republic of Artsakh, broke away from … Continue reading War Resumes Between Armenia and Azerbaijan: A Blow against the Masses in the Caucasus

Preparing for a War – Why the Election Won’t Save You

Comrade Andy 200,000+ people in the USA are dead by coronavirus, Louisville is under siege as the masses protest the murder of Breonna Taylor, and an judge who was more reactionary than progressive is dead. Despite the circumstances, many liberals are aggressively hawking for voting, saying that Joe Biden, a rapist, will rescue the regular people from Donald Trump and his fascist goons. Even if Biden wins, there won’t be the peace and prosperity that many liberals think existed prior to Trump, willfully ignoring the circumstances that were there for marginalized people (ie. Ferguson, Standing Rock) prior and the circumstances … Continue reading Preparing for a War – Why the Election Won’t Save You

UNITY AND STRUGGLE: Reportback and Analysis of Albany Park “Gang War”

Comrade Bobby Sands “A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous.
