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
By: Comrade Valerie At the first conference of the Maoist Communist Party – Organizing Committee, the body that originally generated For The People, it was agreed that “the contradiction between oppressor/exploiting nations and oppressed/exploited nations remains the primary contradiction of our era of capitalism-imperialism.” Though the Organizing Committee has strategically decentralized and the individual FTP chapters are engaged in party building autonomously, this point is … Continue reading Jailbreak the Prisonhouse of Nations! On the Role of the Euro-Amerikan Nation

By Kevin ” Rashid” Johnson, Minister of Defense, RIBPP Note: We publish this in solidarity with the comrades of the Revolutionary Intercommunal Black Panther Party (RIBPP). We, like many, were shocked and amazed at the level of duplicity and manipulative behavior of Tom Watts and his now exposed record of cultural appropriation (pretending to be Indigenous), meddling in the affairs of New Afrikan revolutionary organizations, … Continue reading SHATTERING THE LOOKING GLASS AND EXPOSING THE SETTLER HIDING BEHIND IT: A Response On Behalf Of The Central Committee Of The RIBPP To “Through The Looking Glass”

By: FTP-PDX Background Formed by a split with the Workers World Party in 2004 (which split from the Socialist Workers Party nearly 50 years prior), the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL) has grown into a regular—at times domineering—presence at demonstrations across the United States. After it claimed the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition in the split, PSL became a vital force in the anti-war movement of the 2000s. Though membership grew … Continue reading Against the Party for “Socialism” and Liberation: Proletarian Feminism is the Weapon to Smash Revisionism!
FTP-Twin Cities Another election, another war-mongering imperialist elected to the highest office of the so-called united states. The dictatorship of the bourgeoisie remains in power, prolonging its parasitic existence. Biden and Harris will maintain the colonies (both internal and external) of this country. The military will continue dropping bombs and terrorizing the world abroad, while funding other States which support such campaigns of terror and … Continue reading So, The Election Spectacle is Over. Now What?
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 … Continue reading What Makes A Good Maoist?

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.

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, … Continue reading #RentStrike Movement Building for April 1, 2020: Some Thoughts and Considerations
March 22, 2020 In the middle of December, 1873, the economy slipped on the ice and crashed. The resulting depression led to layoffs en masse. Not long after landlords began tossing those workers and their families into the frozen streets. The streets matched their hearts, cold and with a healthy smattering of excrement. Labor suffered for Capital. Our economy has now come to a halt … Continue reading Reflections On the Financial Crisis of 1873

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.

“Someone threw me on the ground and hit me.”
The now concerned nurse asked, “who hurt you?”
This response left the nurse and the guard laughing. The moment they found out that the perpetrator was a cop they walked away laughing. Continue reading We Have No Other Option: Reflections from a Cadre Who Was Arrested In Solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en
