FTP-Chicago Patriarchal violence, while not unique to imperialist capitalism, is one of its foundational tools, and is integral to its perpetuation. When discussing how pervasive and omnipresent rape and rape apologism are in organizing spaces in Chicago, it is crucial that our analysis be couched in an understanding of the fact that gender oppressed colonized people, the world over, have been and continue to be … Continue reading On Patriarchal Violence and Rape Apologia in The Chicago Activist Scene: The Proletarian Feminist Response
I.) On the International Situation US imperialism, the number one threat to continued existence of humanity, continues to sow war and coup plots the world over. This is to be expected, the enemy will remain the enemy. When we speak of imperialism, we of course also speak of what Nkrumah called “the last stage” of imperialism, which is neocolonialism. Lenin defines imperialism as, essentially, the … Continue reading It Won’t Stop Until We Stop It: Joint International Workers’ Day 2021 Statement From 10 FTP Chapters
Comrade Val To say that “Stonewall was a riot” has become something of a cliche in the last ten years amongst LGBT people. What began as an earnest attempt to re-inject some radical energy into a community that had long been co-opted for empire has now become as meaningless and co-opted as the rainbow flag itself. Figures such as Marsha P Johnson and Silvia Rivera, … Continue reading Faerie Fire — On Revolutionary Queer History: Part One

by Kevin Rashid Johnson, Minister of Defense RIBPP On December 29, 2020, I joined with several recently expelled members of the new Afrikan Black Panther Party (NABPP) and other comrades to create a new revolutionary intercommunal party as a split from and restructuring of the NABPP.

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?
By: Huey Dessalines UNITED STATES: Militant incarcerated workers across the country ushered in April with a series of riots, strikes, and standoffs with correctional authorities in response to lack of response to stated demands.

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.
