On Revolutionary Mutual Aid and Economic Base Building

It’s common sense that for a revolutionary base area to be conquered and developed correctly there must be a strong revolutionary base for the production of food, clothing, etc. and supply of essential services to the masses of people under the leadership of the Party. We know from history that when revolutionaries conquer territory and hold it as a base that the forces of the enemy will seek to turn the masses against the revolutionary army and Party by cordoning it off and seeking to disrupt supply lines, services such as water, gas and electricity, and “making the economy scream”. . . .

BLACK ALLIANCE FOR PEACE- BALTIMORE DEMAND END TO POLICING SURGE

At the end of October, during the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in Chicago, President Trump announced, “In coming weeks, Attorney General Barr will announce a new crackdown on violent crime—which I think is so important—targeting gangs and drug traffickers in high crime cities and dangerous rural areas.” Attorney General Barr announced, right before the holidays, the initiative known as Operation Relentless Pursuit at a news conference in Detroit, Michigan. Joining him were leaders of the FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and U.S. Marshals Service.  Baltimore City is one of 7 cities, . . .

Jailhouse Lawyers Speak “general open” membership for prisoners

Revolutionary greetings to all freedom fighters and supporters for prisoners human rights: On a southern plantation (prison) JLS was founded in 2015 amongst a group of Jailhouse Lawyers who were already in unity as a cadre-based upon the studies of George L. Jackson. This original group of comrades makes up the current central committee. Today, Jailhouse Lawyers Speak (JLS) is a national collective of imprisoned persons who fight for human rights, by providing other prisoners with access to legal education, resources, and assistance. Our focus is on challenging laws that are dehumanizing prisoners and educating prisoners about these laws. We . . .

Abolition Beyond The Binary

“The prison, therefore, functions ideologically as an abstract site into which undesirables are deposited, relieving us of the responsibility of thinking about the real issues afflicting those communities from which prisoners are drawn in such disproportionate numbers. This is the ideological work that the prison performs—it relieves us of the responsibility of seriously engaging with the problems of our society, especially those produced by racism and, increasingly, global capitalism.” Angela Y. Davis, Are Prisons Obsolete? According to the Prison Policy Initiative, the American criminal justice system currently holds almost 2.3 million people in 1,719 state prisons, 109 federal prisons, 1,772 . . .

Perspectives on Veterans Day and the War on New Afrika

There was no war bloodier or more destructive in the history of mankind than World World One. So, on June 4th, 1926, following many nations agreeing that such devastation can never happen again, the United States Congress passed a resolution establishing November 11th as Armistice Day. The intent of Armistice Day was to highlight the “day the fighting stopped” (in 1918) and, as President Calvin Coolridge stated in his Proclamation, to “commemorate with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through goodwill and mutual understanding between nations”. However, following World War II, President Dwight D. Eisenhower issued a . . .

The Futility and Stupidity of the Unrestricted Settler “Left”

As readers may know, I have been a supporter, propagandist and active participant in the For the People movement since its inception. I am but one of many comrades who have dedicated our lives to building a broad movement of working class and nationally oppressed people to finally take down capitalism-imperialism once and for all. One of the requirements for such a movement is the development of alternative infrastructure for the inevitability of services and food transport being disrupted in a revolutionary situation. The line of march for the revolution to destroy the United States is the construction and conquest . . .

Liberalism Will Get Us Killed

“I have never really understood exactly what a ‘liberal’ is, since I have heard ‘liberals’ express every conceivable opinion on every conceivable subject. As far as I can tell, you have the extreme right, who are fascist racist capitalist dogs like Ronald Reagan, who come right out and let you know where they’re coming from. And on the opposite end, you have the left, who are supposed to be committed to justice, equality, and human rights. And somewhere between those two points is the liberal. As far as I’m concerned, ‘liberal’ is the most meaningless word in the dictionary. History . . .

Schools are Tools of Colonialism. Trust Me I’m a Black Educator

It is an uphill battle as a Black educator that has to deal with often white administrations and the frustrations of students. We have to do it anyway. Our youth deserve more and we damn sure must do all that is in our power to give it to them through quality education of our Black radical tradition. . . .
