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!
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?
By: He Xuefeng (Translation by a supporter of the MCP-OC) Disclaimer: This article is published in PVN as a demonstration of international solidarity and in the interests of unity within the international communist movement. This position in no way should be interpreted to represent the line of the MCP-OC. The organization of the peasantry is a pre-condition of rural revitalization. China’s very own collectivized economic system, including the collective ownership of rural land, is the most effective vehicle for the peasantry’s organization. This article should be read as a plan (or appeal) for the organization of the peasantry and the reconstruction of village collectives. … Continue reading Guest Article from A Comrade in China: For the Recollectivization of Agriculture (Part 1)
Comrade Sabine Leaders of the bourgeois LGBT movement have declared it to be “lesbian visibility week.” We are asked to fight for ‘inclusion,’ in the capitalist-imperialist system, to demand reforms and legal protections from the settler-colonial state apparatus; the movement for our liberation has taken the form of a cheap identity politics, emphasizing “visibility” and the legal recognition of (largely white and bourgeois) gay interests. We do not deny the benefits afforded to our people from the legal struggle – hardly, as those benefits have directly impacted many of us, just as the shoddy protections granted to the working class … Continue reading A Lesbian MCP Cadre Speaks on “Lesbian Visibility Week”
Huey Dessalines UNITED STATES: Demands for a rent strike are building steam across the United States during the COVID-19 epidemic. This is expected, as countless people are unemployed as a result of disruption to the restaurant and tourism industries which employ millions of people in this country. This rent strike demand goes along with several dozen wildcat strikes in key industries, such as food processing, delivery, and cargo transport. The demands of these strikes are, generally, provision of adequate PPE and sanitation measures. It is the task of the revolutionary movement to revolutionize and centralize these actions, and bring as … Continue reading #RentStrike Movement Building for April 1, 2020: Some Thoughts and Considerations
By Comrade Sabine So many green streams and blue hills, but to what avail ?This tiny creature left even Hua To powerless!Hundreds of villages choked with weeds, men wasted away;Thousands of homes deserted, ghosts chanted mournfully.Motionless, by earth I travel … Continue reading Farewell to the God of Plague! – A Revolutionary Response to Pandemic
By Comrade Delphi March 5, 2020 There’s a small town in western Indiana called Carlisle. A very small town. One of those places that once was probably a fairly successful agricultural community where, if you didn’t farm, you probably commuted to some automobile or steel plant and did pretty well for yourself. Of course, like so many other midwestern towns of its size that’s all gone now, well almost gone. You see, until recently there were at least two industries left in Carlisle, a giant hole in the ground called the Carlisle Mine and a high security prison—the Wabash Valley Correctional Facility. … Continue reading Indiana Prison Offers Jobs to Settler Workers
The Democratic Party is divided and split. There is a center-social democratic wing, and a right wing. The centrist wing, which can not appropriately be called a “Left”, is represented by Bernie Sanders. His policies and rhetoric are a blend of old New Deal and new DSA social democracy. Joe Biden is an out and out, rabid imperialist and racist whose record in the Senate is scarred with such things as opposition to busing for racial equity and support for de facto segregation. The Democrats, we know, can not be Socialists. To be a Socialist means being a Communist. There are no Communists in the Democratic Party. There are, however, many people that claim to be Communists who, for whatever reason, continue to maintain belief in the electoral system. We see these politics as petit-bourgeois nihilism, cynicism, alarmism and rightist pragmatism. Continue reading What Happened On Super Tuesday? A Maoist Analysis of the 2020 Electoral Cycle.
