Psywar campaign to deceive and divide the revolutionary movement through fake peace talks is stupid and futile


Based on their latest statements, it is now clear that Duterte and his running dog General Galvez are not at all interested in serious peace negotiations through panels duly authorized by the NDFP National Council and the GRP president as the principals at the national level.

They continue to drive nails into the coffin of the peace negotiations which Duterte has terminated and killed formally since November 23, 2017 with his Proclamation 360. The tyrant Duterte is most despicable for throwing away the draft agreements made by his own negotiating panel with the NDFP negotiating panel.

Duterte and Galvez are interested merely in a psywar campaign to stage fake localized peace talks and fake surrenders between military officers and their military assets (disguised as surrendering rebels) in a stupid and futile attempt to deceive and divide the broad masses of the people.

Such psywar campaign is a mere minor adjunct of the all-o... show more

ILPS condemns arrest of Julian Assange, demands his immediate release as journalist


We, the International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS), strongly condemn the arrest of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange by British authorities under the direction of the US government. We defend his rights as a journalist and demand his immediate release.

Assange has earned the ire of the US for exposing the truth about US behind-the-scenes machinations in its drive to carry out foreign interventions and launch wars of aggression for regime change and economic plunder. Wikileaks has published volumes of material documenting the crimes of US imperialism around the world.

The arrest of Assange is based on a charge of engaging in theft of US state secrets. Assange is accused of conspiring with US Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning to crack a password on a Defense Department computer network for classified documents and communications to download classified records and transmit them to WikiLeaks.

Duterte is mortally afraid of the New People’s Army as he steps up the mass murder of unarmed people


If Duterte and his armed minions were to be believed, the New People’s Army no longer exists because it has been supposedly decimated several times over by fake surrenders and fake encounters.

The more Duterte presents himself as a victorious conqueror, the more he exposes his frustration and cowardice by speaking to the public only behind a thick bullet-proof glass. His false claims of victory are belied by the NPA’s intensifying offensives on a nationwide scale.

In fact, he has been most successful at ordering his death squads to kill unarmed social activists, including priests, journalists, teachers, health workers, lawyers, and human rights advocates. He has extended the methods of Oplan Tokhang to Oplan Kapayapaan by red-tagging, framing up, and murdering an increasing number of victims who are opposed to his regime.

He has also excelled at using his armed forces to bomb and displace rural communities of indigeno... show more


 

ILPS condemns Duterte for slander and intimidation


The International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS), which I represent as Chairperson of the International Coordinating Committee (ICC), hereby condemns in the strongest terms the attempt of the notorious Duterte regime to slander the ILPS and misrepresent it as the international network and International Department of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) for the purpose of intimidating the legal and patriotic and progressive organizations of Filipinos in the Philippines and abroad.

Contrary to the false claim of the Duterte regime, the ILPS is a broad alliance of hundreds of anti-imperialist and democratic mass organizations in scores of countries from all continents. The ICC, its supreme leading organ, is elected by the International Assembly and is restricted by the ILPS Charter from having more than three members from the same country, thus preempting control of the ILPS by any single country or organization.

The Duterte regime’s attack on the ILPS is an extension of... show more


 

A Rejoinder to the Malicious and Slanderous Publicity of the AFP-PNP On the NPA’S Improvised Explosive Devices and on “Localized Peace Talks” to Malign the Revolutionary Movement in the Ilocos-Cordillera


Since the time the NPA have been using the so-called Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) to advance the National Democratic Revolution through People’s War against the Filipino people’s three basic problems of US imperialism, feudalism and bureaucrat capitalism, the fascist commanding officers of the reactionary AFP-PNP forces – who are the candid protectors of the big landlords and big comprador bourgeoisie and their US-imperialist master – blatantly shout that the revolutionary Army of the Filipino people are the violators of the international laws and rules of war. The NPA’s National Operations Command (NOC) has often made clarifications that NPA commanders and combatants always and at all times adhere to the laws and rules of war in waging the People’s War. Nonetheless, the AFP-PNP commanders conti... show more


 


Honduras has an actual dictatorship and humanitarian crisis - Thanks to a US-backed coup - Invidious

While the Trump administration oversees a coup attempt in Venezuela, Honduras is suffering from an actual dictatorship and humanitarian crisis, after a 2009 US-backed right-wing coup destabilized the country. Lucy Pagoada speaks about the resistance to imperialism.

The Debate


6 months before the Purulia Arms Drop I participated in an Ananda Marga debate about whether terrorism could ever be justified. Ananda Marga was a pacific revolutionary organization that denounced both the materialistic philosophies of capitalism as well as communism. The focus of the ideology was primary yoga and meditation but there was a lot of emphasis on social justice and activism as well. My friends in Ananda Marga were fans of the libertarian socialist ideas behind the Mexican Revolution of 1910, the Spanish revolution of the 30’s and most especially the Zapatista revolution in Mexico which was still occurring at the time of this debate. Nobody in the debate could really defend terrorism. We evaded the idea of terrorism and focused on the justification of using force against the state by violent revolution. However, the other side said our idea of revolution was not terrorism because it is a declared political and revolutionary military movement which does not target civilians like terrorist attacks. We were ideological rebels, but nobody was aggr... show more


 

An Aussie travelled to the DPRK to study - now he tells of his experiences in the country


(You can see it as a propaganda move to relativise of what North Korea does to its people, about the working camps and the cult of the national leaders (which we have in the US as well), or you just try to imagine that in North Korea, they have never heard of the Guardian, let alone have a free press themselves, and so he couldn't care less about what could happen to him)
I had been interested in socialism ever since studying the Russian Revolution at high school, while my sinologist father, Chinese mother and childhood love of Japanese anime had sparked a passion for Chinese and Japanese.

After finishing my degree in Asian studies, I decided to take my interest in North Korea to postgraduate level. Pyongyang seemed a natural option, and with my North Korean friends’ help, I began my master’s in contemporary North Korean literature in April 2018.

Namibia hard-headed on return of Witbooi Family Bible


Kaptein Witbooi, who fought fiercely against German troops in Namibia during the genocidal war of 1904-1908, had his Bible and whip confiscated by the German soldiers as they raided his village. The artefacts were taken to Germany in the 1900s and are now held in Germany’s Linden Museum in Stuttgart.

The royal house, represented by Kaptein Solomon Witbooi, took a swipe at the Minister of Education, Arts and Culture, Katrina Hanse-Himarwa, saying she made reckless and insensitive statements through the radio as if the government was doing the royal house grand favour with the repatriation of the artefacts.

But Hanse-Himarwa is adamant that the Bible is being remitted against the broader background of the call for the restitution of looted cultural goods and the repatriation of human remains estranged during the colonial era.

UN tells Britain to return Chagos Archipelago to Mauritius


Judges in The Hague said in a legal "advisory opinion" on a decades-old dispute that Britain had illegally split the islands from Mauritius at independence in the 1960s, after which thousands of islanders were deported.

"The United Kingdom is under an obligation to bring an end to its administration of the Chagos Archipelago as rapidly as possible, thereby allowing Mauritius to complete the decolonisation of its territory," chief judge Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf said.

The Chagos Islanders have already taken their battle through the courts in Britain, where their supporters included the current Labour opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Pink Floyd front man Roger Waters condemns US sanctions on Venezuela


In selfie footage he said was to be played at the ‘Hands Off Venezuela’ concert organised by embattled socialist president Nicolás Maduro, Waters also suggested US-led aid headed for the country was the precursor for a coup or invasion.

Slowly I start to doubt Mr. Waters' involvement in political actions, and his constant statements on the Middle Eastern conflict. To praise Assange and defend Maduro is a doubtworthy action that shows a strange understanding of what is going on there, or what Mr. Assange is doing. What comes next? A video contribution on Ron Paul's Youtube channel?

It came just days after he criticised Richard Branson for organising a separate concert – on the Colombian side of the border – to raise aid for people suffering there.

The Quixotic Narco Slayers


See attached link to read the article with photos and multimedia on the blog.

I recently spoke at the Navajo Nation at a conference about racism and social medicine. I spoke of how the narco war in Mexico is manipulated by government diplomats and corporations from both sides of the border to steal land for mines and fracking. I refer to my own experiences as well as some other confessions of people who I met that had inside information as employees of the state and assistants to diplomats. They told me of complex multinational schemes to take over the Mexican economic infrastructure. Many of the sources they cite are also publicly available if one knows where to look. I never doubted their authenticity because the horrific rumors I heard from these inside sources actually manifested into horrific social reality soon after I heard these confessions.

Thank you Forward:

"She genuinely holds radical, risky views on all aspects of American foreign policy. She is opposed to violence against civilians in Latin America, in Yemen, and yes, in Gaza too. She believes the United States should end sanctions everywhere — not just against Iran, but against North Korea too. Say what you want about her foreign policy, but she is a peacenik and skeptic of American empire—consistently."

The US territory, including its colonies


Were Japan’s targets considered “the United States”? Legally, they were indisputably US territory. But would the public see them that way? What if Roosevelt’s audience didn’t care that Japan had attacked the Philippines or Guam? Polls taken slightly before the attack show that few in the continental US supported a military defense of those remote territories.

But it is also missing Puerto Rico, which, although not a state, has been part of the country since 1899. When have you ever seen a map of the US that had Puerto Rico on it? Or American Samoa, Guam, the US Virgin Islands, the Northern Marianas or any of the other smaller islands that the US has annexed over the years?

The racism that had pervaded the country since slavery also engulfed the territories. Like African Americans, colonial subjects were denied the vote, deprived of the rights of full citizens, called racial epithets, subjected to dangerous medical experiments and used as sacrificial pawns in war.

Vera Lynn - There'll always be an England


Next to Cill Cais - the post-Brexit hymn to sing once England is out of the European Union - this has to be sung by all of us to comfort the morons from the Isle of The Apes. I mean, it's no use of laughing about them when they are about to injure us as well. Thus, why not sing this lovely little song for them, or together with them? I mean, there'll be enough to laugh about in the further future, when the economy has settled itself again, to this new situation.

If only there were some precedent, for Venezuela's odd refusal of perfectly tainted aid...

"Rejecting aid out of political reasons is not unusual. When the hurricane Katrina in 2005 caused huge damage along the U.S. gulf coast, a number of countries offered humanitarian and technical aid. U.S. President Bush accepted help from some countries, but rejected aid from other ones:

'An offer of aid from the Venezuelan president, Hugo Chávez, which included two mobile hospital units, 120 rescue and first aid experts and 50 tonnes of food, has been rejected, according to the civil rights leader, Jesse Jackson.
'Mr Jackson said the offer from the Venezuelan leader, whom he recently met, included 10 water purification plants, 18 power generation plants and 20 tonnes of bottled water.'

"The U.S. intent to establish a 'humanitarian aid' supply line into Venezuela has a secondary purpose. Such aid is the ideal cover for weapon supplies. In the 1980s designated 'humanitarian aid' flights for Nicaragua were filled with weapons. The orders for those flights were given... show more

Leaked Wikileaks Doc Reveals US Military Use of IMF, World Bank as “Unconventional” Weapons



This “U.S. coup manual,” recently highlighted by WikiLeaks, serves as a reminder that the so-called “independence” of such financial institutions as The World Bank and IMF is an illusion and that they are among the many “financial weapons” regularly used by the U.S. government to bend countries to its will.

"Regretfully, I have to admit that I had several hesitations regarding Venezuela. I was reluctant to show support or solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution and President Maduro. I bought the image that Maduro was pursuing an undemocratic course and certainly was no socialist. This view was due to my personal picture perfect idea of what socialism looks like and how it should function. Venezuela fell short of my ideal vision of socialism, as reality always does with ideal situations and outcomes. However, the problem was I was not using a materialist analysis; I failed to take into account the impact US imperialism and violent reactionary forces may have u... show more
