By Comrade Redbeard Today marks the first anniversary of the Gastropub Putsch, also known as the Capitol Riot, or to those that really want to emphasize the point that it’s bad to threaten the u.s. government, the Capitol Insurrection. In the days and weeks leading up to January 6, 2022, much of the capitalist press, liberal talking heads, bourgeois academics, and Democratic politicians have spilled … Continue reading Fascism is More than Rallies and Street Brawls: January 6 and Fantasies of Amerikan Democracy
Comrade Toussaint Paul McKee, a wealthy white real estate developer who has swallowed up huge chunks of Saint Louis’s New Afrikan community, continues his war on this proud and resilient people, this time insulting the memory of one of its most cherished institutions. Homer G. Phillips Hospital, located at 2601 North Whittier Street in the Ville, closed in 1979, another victim of neoliberalism. Before its … Continue reading Criminal Developer Paul McKee Continues War On Black Saint Louis
Comrade A. Ladd Bucktown is a small neighborhood on Chicago’s near Northwest side which made headlines recently after a neighborhood NGO calling itself the Bucktown Neighborhood Association (BNA), hired a private security firm to carryout nightly patrols in a section of the neighborhood, which began this week. The firm, P4 Security Solutions, is a militarized private security company founded by “security industry experts and former … Continue reading Bucktown, Chicago: The New Garrison Community
By: Comrade Carlo Research by Comrade Eli Imperialism is the single greatest threat to humanity. It is the cause of the pollution which causes climate change, through the combined actions of the US Military Industrial Complex and the global imperialist military presence. This very same war machine is in bed with the faux-progressive, Maryland university administration and colludes with UMBC’s administration directly. The admin of … Continue reading Anti Imperialist Coalition Formed in Baltimore

By Comrade Redbeard Once again, the state of Texas is on the cutting edge of reactionary politics. Earlier this year, the cultural luddites, moral lepers, and sadists with a quorum in the Texan legislature and governor’s mansion passed one of the most extreme anti-abortion laws in recent US history. Essentially, the new law, SB 8, overturns the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling … Continue reading Abortion Rights are Human Rights: No Apologies, No Restrictions!

Author：”Lao Tian” Translator：”Kyon” Translator’s Note Lao Tian is a prolific writer and one of the leading figures of China’s left. This terse article should be treated as a polemical piece that reflects on the power inequalities in the Socialist management system that allowed for the re-establishment of the Capitalist wage system. “To each according to his labor” is the principle of Socialist distribution that has … Continue reading Bourgeois Rights and the Means
By Comrade Carlos How do we as revolutionary communists determine friend from foe? Not everyone who calls themselves your comrade has your back, and deciphering who our true enemies are in the field while organizing is crucial to avoid wasting our time attempting to recruit those with class interests opposed to a socialist revolution. Simply put, those classes oppressed in the current societies around the … Continue reading Class Analysis and the U.S. Military
By Comrade Redbeard There are many upsides to living in California. We have breathtaking, diverse natural landscapes, many of which are on fire on a regular basis. Other states envy our fields that feed millions, and the immigrant farmworkers worked to exhaustion by landowners. Do you want to meet some of the nastiest police departments in a country full of them, or urban centers seemingly … Continue reading The Fool’s Golden State: California’s Recall Election Staggers to an End
Comrade Redbeard and Comrade Toussaint The US-led effort in Afghanistan collapsed with a pathetic whimper on Sunday, with the entry of Taliban forces into Kabul, the nation’s capital, the flight of puppet President Ashraf Ghani to Tajikistan, and the Vietnam-esque images of helicopters taking off from the roof of the (former) US Embassy. According to US officials, American soldiers have shot two supposedly armed men … Continue reading Lifting a Rock to Drop It On One’s Own Feet: On the Failed US Mission in Afghanistan
But when we take the measure of a human being who has passed on (and therefore no longer has an opportunity to grow, or be held accountable) we must add up the good, the bad, and the in-between. In my estimation, comrade Fidel left this world far better than he came to it. This is the key. His contributions and the contributions of the Cuban people in the fight against colonialism, apartheid, and imperialism in Africa are almost enough to cement his legacy in and of themselves. There’s a reason why he took the time to meet with Malcolm X when he came to Harlem, and why Nelson Mandela visited Cuba and Castro shortly after his release from prison. Continue reading A Comrade’s Tribute to Fidel Castro on His 95th Birthday
FTP-Chicago (Opportunist lawyer Colin Nguyen, gentrifier Alan Coyle, and running dog Nicholas Antonacci) This report highlights some of the most recent struggles of the Hands Off Albany Park movement and the pathetic attempts to destroy it on part of the targeted enemies, in particular developer Platinum Homes and it’s owner Alan Coyle. We wanted to be thorough in our report to expose the cowardice of … Continue reading HOAP Report Back: Paper Tiger Alan Coyle Threatens to Sue and the Reactionaries at Allied Law
Comrade Val There’s a myth that I’m sure a lot of us have heard time and time again: that it gets better. Dan Savage started the It Gets Better project in September of 2010 in response to the deluge of suicides by queer youth that year. I was 16 at the time, struggling with my own gender and sexuality, and I vividly remember reading about each suicide … Continue reading Faerie Fire: On Revolutionary Queer History: Part Two
By Com. Omega For more than 20 years, the Albany Park neighborhood, located on Chicago’s northwest side, has been a site of struggle for workers and tenants against gentrification. In the early 2000’s, Albany Park began to see it’s first wave of gentrification, resulting in thousands of families being displaced. The 2008 housing crisis halted much of the condo construction, but families were still being … Continue reading Beyond Tenants Rights: An Interview with Eastwood Tenants Union
