How the IMF Exploits African Nations

It’s difficult to understand why our new government leaders are celebrating getting on to an International Monetary Fund (IMF) programme. It reminds me of the PF government’s celebrations over getting the Euro bonds. Can one really celebrate getting kaloba! Is that something to really celebrate? . . .

The Most Revolutionary Thing We Can Do This Year

Well, some highlights from my observations from this past year. Some things that I still enjoy looking back on: That magic moment in March, when a New York Times article exposed that Democrats were hesitantly admitting that they did in fact drop the ball during Obama’s administration in regard to his rescue package, that really wasn’t. Democrats were angry at the consistently cheap Republicans who didn’t want to give any assistance to struggling Americans during the Coronavirus pandemic, but they also admitted that the rescue package from Obama’s first term was woefully lacking, too cautious and too deferential to those . . .

Imperialism: Unpacking The Primary Contradiction

It must be continuously reiterated that domestic and global imperialism are counterparts. It is what connects Africans in the U.S. directly to struggles against imperialism worldwide. . . .

All States Aren’t Bad

Despite what is being said in online fodder, a state is not inherently bad. A state is simply the  governing institution of a society. This governance takes on the form of a formal government, schools, universities, and law enforcement agencies. A state is not neutral as these institutions are the vehicle through which one class maintains dominance over other classes.  States each have their own specific class characters. If a nation is building socialism, the ruling class is not the small sect of corporations, but the people. In a socialist state, the masses would maintain dominance (ie. dictatorship of the proletariat). However, paternalism embedded in the US left completely ignores and rejects this. . . .

Eritrea Versus AFRICOM

The rapid expansion of AFRICOM on the African continent should be a cause for concern as African nations are quickly surrendering their sovereignty to the US. As the only country without a relationship to AFRICOM, Eritrea bears the brunt of US vilification. We must salute Eritrea’s ongoing project of national liberation. . . .

Cuba Journal Day 1&2: “Cuban people have balls!”

The Cuban society I see today, that society that refuses to surrender its beauty, is the result of millions of Cuban people coming together and deciding they would no longer be controlled by capitalism and imperialism. . . .

Nicaragua, Cuba, and Venezuela: Class Warfare and Socialist Resistance

Why do Nicaragua, Cuba and Venezuela pose such an existential threat to the U.S.? Why are they able to unite all the wings of the democrat party and the republican party against them? It boils down to two factors. First, the power of their example in attempting to build independent, self-determining projects that center the material needs and interests of the people over those of capital. Second, the class warfare politics of the U.S. state. . . .

Mobilizations in support of the FSLN in Nicaragua

Why Black Revolutionaries Must Stand with the People of Nicaragua

On November 7th, the people of Nicaragua will go to the polls to reaffirm the commitment to their revolutionary democratic project, a project that began in 1979 when the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) defeated a vicious, neocolonial, gangster regime of Anastasio Somoza that was put in power by the United States. Under the leadership of the FSLN, the people of Nicaragua were able to finally control their own history and destiny. However, U.S. imperialism was not going to respect the wishes of the people. Under the neofascist president Ronald Reagan, the U.S. launched a brutal war of aggression, part . . .
