On September 7th, 2020, fascist president of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte granted an absolute pardon to a US-imperialist soldier in the 2014 murder of a trans woman, Jennifer Laude. The pardon serves as a reversal of policy for Duterte, who had previously promised to not release the murderer, Joseph Scott Pendleton.

Dedication/Consistency: Maoists do not simply start tasks and not finish them out of boredom, or … Continue reading What Makes A Good Maoist?
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.
