"In the West much of the time if you’re not allowed to vote by putting the ballot in the box and choosing an administrative person, if this does not take place, then we’re inclined to say there’s no democracy. This is not necessarily true, if democracy is defined as all of the people getting a fair share and a fair deal of whatever wealth there is and some control over their administrators. But here you can only vote within the scope of the definition of the institutions and the authorities that control them. (…) For instance, in the west, as well as in Latin America, people say there’s no democracy in Cuba because they’re not putting the ballot in the box. So therefore the people are not consulted. On the other hand, Fidel Castro says that the people are consulted in an even more severe way; that the authority is put to the acid test. The acid test is that for a long time the people can be fooled, but they can’t be fooled and misused all of the time. The test would be the doom of authority through armed revolution. That is the way the people are consulted in the final analysis."

WHAT IS ANTI-IMPERIALISM?Monday 28 November, 6.30pm, University of London Union



This year we have witnessed something that should be very worrying to all those that consider themselves anti-war, anti-imperialist and anti-racist. The British state has been at the head of a colonial war in North Africa, and there has been practically zero meaningful opposition to that war within Britain. In February 2003, two million people marched in London against war in Iraq. Only eight years later, all it takes is some reasonably sophisticated propaganda from the press and suddenly nobody is motivated to take a stand against wholesale destruction, widespread massacres and racist lynchings. 

The western empire is pushing its agenda of complete domination of Africa and the Middle East, by destabilising and attempting to overthrow all resistant, independence-minded states and groups (in particular Libya, Syria, Iran, Algeria, Hezbollah, Hamas). Dressing this up as a movement for democracy, they have thrown most people off the scent. We need to fully understand imperialist strategy and tactics, and develop our own strategy and tactics to oppose them. 
Speakers include: MARCEL CARTIERBronx-based rapper and activist, talking about organising against the US empire from within the belly of the beast.FRANCISCO DOMINGUEZChair of the Venezuela Solidarity Campaign, talking about opposing imperialism from a Latin American perspectiveOBIANG NSANGActivist from the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party, talking about opposing imperialism from a Pan-African perspectiveDANIEL RENWICKYouth worker, writer and activist, talking about the anti-war movement in BritainThere will be rap, poetry and beatbox from Marcel Cartier, Samira Musa and more.MORE SPEAKERS/PERFORMERS TBA.

Why are the media silent about Black people being lynched alongside Gadhafi?

fuckyeahmarxismleninism:

By Sukant Chandan, Sons of Malcolm

Never before has the world witnessed empire and its mercenaries (in the form of the pro-nato Libyan rebels) perform such a public gruesome crucifixion of a leader of the world anti-imperialist movement.

The lynching of Gadafi, whose videos are being paraded throughout the empire media shows us that at this moment of growing war against the Global South the empire is sending us clear message of white supremacy and wars of aggression.
The war in Libya reflects the Black Liberation struggle of Africa in the forces of the resistance, and for these reasons darker skinned people have fought disproportionally in the resistance, and have been targeted disproportionally by nato and their allies.

In the videos of Gadafi’s lynching, there are several Black people who are tied to the back of pro-nato rebel pick-up trucks. One of them, the first below, is immediately in the vicinity of Gadafi being lynched.

The second photo is taken from a clip from Al-Jazeera English, which is a piece about the lynching of Gadafi. This is a screen print, although the camera stays on this scene for 9seconds and then cuts straight to another two people in the back of pro-nato rebel trucks, including what looks like a very young black man of around 20yrs old with a lighter skinned middle aged Libyan man with an Islamic skull cap on.
The AJE piece makes no comment on this footage, which is unsurprising, as AJE and its Arabic channel have led the racist story of ‘African mercenaries’ fighting for Gadafi (to date no evidence has been provided, admitted by western media and ngos), which has helped facilitate the mass lynching of darker skinned people in Libya, including the complete destruction of the town of 25,000 mostly darker skinned Libyans in Tawergha.

As far as I am aware, I have been the only one who has commented on these images in THIS interview on Russia Today. I would encourage others to raise their voices. A small point, I was mistaken that I thought one of the black brothers was tied to vertical poles, he is actually tied to a mounted heavy artillery gun barrel on the pick-up truck which is at a 45 degree angle. He is clearly terrified and bloodied.
Why arent these images being commented on more in the media and by commentators etc? Has the lynching of black people become so acceptable?

Libya: One More Noose!

From Class Against Class!:

“U.S. imperialism invaded China’s territory of Taiwan and has occupied it for the past nine years. A short while ago it sent its armed forces to invade and occupy Lebanon. The United States has set up hundreds of military bases in many countries all over the world.

“China’s territory of Taiwan, Lebanon and all military bases of the United States on foreign soil are so many nooses round the neck of U.S. imperialism.

“The nooses have been fashioned by the Americans themselves and by nobody else, and it is they themselves who have put these nooses round their own necks, handing the ends of the ropes to the Chinese people, the peoples of the Arab countries and all the peoples of the world who love peace and oppose aggression.

“The longer the U.S. aggressors remain in those places, the tighter the nooses round their necks will become.”

THE REVOLUTIONARY WOMEN OF LIBYA: Mother and 17 year old daughter who are an example of the masses of Libyan women who have volunteered to take up the government weapons training and government issued weapons on offer and to run one of the very few checkpoints in Tripoli. Masses of women are also fighting on the frontline. 
All of this mother’s sons are fighting on the frontline and in tears she explained to us that she would be happy to give her blood to protect her beloved leader Muammar Gaddafi and country who she said has always worked hard for the liberation of Libyan women. She called for death to NATO and told them to face the people on the ground instead of being cowards in the sky. She said every Libyan who dies is her child, that it is why it is her duty to do everything in her power to defend her family, people, leader and country.
The 17 year old sister said Muammar Gaddafi is her father because of all he has done for the liberation of women in Libya. She said her mother brought her up to be strong and stand up for her people.
