Comrade Andy As the uprisings across the so called United States have continued for not only George Floyd, but Breonna Taylor and Elijah McClain, many monuments to the white supremacist imperialist order have been torn by protesters. From statues of Christopher Columbus, the first modern imperialist and genocider, slave owners and human traffickers, butchers of Indigenous people to pigs like Frank Rizzo of Philadephia, many have come down in the past three weeks. Reactionaries are frightened that the masses have taken measures into their own hands to take down these idols of suffering. This was apparent on Saturday, June 27, … Continue reading Down With Genocider Statues – It Is Right To Rebel!
FTP-STL “I mean, I’m not I’m not the enemy of people that really care about the Black lives, but I’m apparently the enemy of the terrorists and the Marxists that are running this organization…first of all, why are they protesting on Portland Place. The mayor doesn’t live there? And when they kick in the gate, when the first thing they do is destroy private property and they storm in angry and shouting and threatening. This isn’t a protest. It’s a revolution. It’s just an attempt to inflict terror. It’s the definition of terrorism is to use force and violence, terrorize … Continue reading This Isn’t A Protest – It’s A Revolution: On The Militant Demonstration of June 28th in Saint Louis
Editorial Note: This reportback is provided so that comrades who counterprotest reactionary events such as the Trump event held in Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 20th know what to look for and what steps to take to keep comrades and the masses safe. Arrived in Tulsa, OK at 1 pm. Parked half a mile away, and immediately saw a suspicious person in the area. MAGA hat, white male, pacing between the two same blocks, and constantly looking around. Assessed as suspicious, but not a threat. On route to the BoK center, many businesses had boarded all windows to prevent damage, local … Continue reading An FTP Cadre Reports on The Tulsa Trump Rally

Guest Contributor: I’m a white working class cisgender woman. I’m disabled & a sex worker. I have been raped by police, multiple times. I’ve been specifically named as an outside agitator in the city I have spent my entire life in on three separate occasions. On each occasion, I was a central organizer for an escalation of tactics in a mass movement, two against police and one in solidarity with indigenous resistance. I planned the escalation hand in hand with leftist black and indigenous organizers. Each time, the escalation made national news. Each time, the mayor of my city … Continue reading On Outside Agitators
Comrade Toussaint “Cadre” is a word that is bounced around a lot, but many don’t grasp its true meaning. The Chinese word for cadre is “ganbu”, which roughly translates to “backbone personnel”. This is how we should view ourselves – backbone personnel of the revolution, essential workers if you will. The categories below, I believe, sum up the essence of a good Maoist cadre and the type of Party worker that the MCP-OC needs to lay a firm foundation for the MCP in the future. Dedication/Consistency: Maoists do not simply start tasks and not finish them out of boredom, or … Continue reading What Makes A Good Maoist?
For the People – Twin Cities On the night of May 28th, the People, the colonized masses (particularly the New Afrikan masses) of Minneapolis achieved an enormous victory. They rose up, in the name of justice for George Floyd and all Black and Indigenous peoples that have been murdered by the settler-colonial state, and drove the pigs out of their tin fortress, took their armaments, redistributed them, and burned the station down. The People are claiming what is rightfully theirs through sheer, uncompromising militancy. The settler-imperialist state of the so-called united states is crumbling before our very eyes. The People … Continue reading A Single Spark Can Start a Precinct Fire: On the Historic Victory of the People of Minneapolis at the Third Precinct
FTP-Twin Cities MINNEAPOLIS- Monday evening, George Floyd, a Black man, was murdered in South Minneapolis by a white pig from the Minneapolis Police Department. The white pig kneeled on Floyd’s neck as Floyd (as well as many bystanders) pleaded for the officer to remove his knee from his neck, all the while the pig’s partners stood by, doing nothing to stop the murder. The officer remained in this position for almost eight minutes after Floyd lost consciousness, with the reasonable assumption that he knew he was 1) restricting Floyd’s breathing to the point of causing him to lose a consciousness and … Continue reading Masses Rise in Rebellion after MPD Murder George Floyd

FTP Chicago On Affordable Housing and Anti-Gentrification Strategies and Methods With the publication of Block Club Chicago’s recent piece, we find it necessary to both respond to the claims made in the article and to analyze the contradictions that have heightened since its release. The primary question of this debate seems to be one of methods and strategies: which method is more capable of addressing the structural dynamics and contradictions that are responsible for gentrification in Albany Park. The method proposed by a coalition of Social Democrats and developers prioritizes reform over militant action; the method proposed by us, … Continue reading Guerilla Gardening and the Problem of Property: An Analysis of Our Situation and Response to Block Club
