The Intersections and Divergences of Disability and Race

The 26-day mass sit-in of April 1977 at the San Francisco headquarters of the federal Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) was a watershed moment in U.S. history.1 Not only did this struggle over Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 directly lead to the promulgation of the fir…

The Making of India’s Vaccine Famine

From whichever angle one approaches the Covid crisis in India, it is clear that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led government is responsible for a catastrophic situation.1 In early February, the Health Ministry boasted that Covid had been defeated in the country. By the middle of April, the offici…

“We Are the Guardians of Public Education”

Preet Lidder: I think we want to, in a lot of ways, get our power back [as a union]. Like, when Karine was talking earlier about feeling powerless, I want us to be a force to be reckoned with. I want us to be driving the conversation around public education in a broad way, and that intersects with w…

Know Your Enemy

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro mirrors Trump in installing climate denialists. Crucially, however, in the case of Brazil, the Collective draws out the consequences of white skin-black fuel for the country’s indigenous populations, articulated in a cardinal principle that the “backward, savag…

After the Commune

When Theirs’s government turned against Paris and tried to seize the National Guard’s two hundred fifty cannon on the eighteenth, therefore, this spirit of unanimity carried over to the defence of the cannon and the declaration of the Commune. But, as the city busied itself with preparing for Co…

Reflections on the Third Intifada

As to the left-wing Zionist tradition, with all its humanism, its main preoccupation has been to “save” Israel. To save what it considered to have been gained, the territories conquered by force in 1948, hoping that the same military state which had deprived Palestine of the larger part of its c…

Friends in Palestine, Has the Future Arrived?

As I write this letter, friends in Palestine are seeing their brothers and sisters, children and mothers and fathers torn apart under the intensity of bombs gifted to the Gazans by Israel’s F-16s. Over these last days, they have witnessed the lynching and the spilling of blood in the streets of…

The Colombian State Is at War with Its People

Additionally, rightwing and centrist politicians in Colombia have also slowly and somewhat quietly passed reform after reform that benefited capital and the rich, including 4 tax reforms under former president Uribe and 4 under Juan Manuel Santos. The recent tax reform was just the latest attempt to…

Turning a Profit from Death

Let us be clear from the outset: what is happening in India right now is mass murder.  And it is organized by a man who has practice in such matters. Two images bookend the current crisis and contain in them a trajectory of the crisis. The first is the image of the Indian police hosing down migrant…

Why Feminism? Why Now?

Paying homage to past and present Palestinian feminist movements is an important glimpse into the PFC’s political orientation. In this way, a close reading of the pledge demonstrates a politics that values the embodiment of Palestinian cultural and political epistemologies throughout history and t…

Resurgent Sectarianism in the North of Ireland

In a development which seems eerily appropriate in this, its centenary year, the Northern Irish state appears to be locked into a trajectory toward sectarian polarisation, renewed street violence, and perhaps worse. Rioting and street unrest has been a common feature of Northern Irish life throughou…

Revolution Is Illegal

Mariátegui in Debate

Seen in this light, the magazine Amauta and his significant Seven Interpretive Essays on Peruvian Reality stand out as far-reaching projects. Gonzalez performs a careful reconstruction of the fundamental aspects marked out both in the political approach of the magazine (published between 1926 and 19…

Building Asian American Liberation from Below

Asian American activism today is split between a radical left wing comprised of small groupings lacking a mass base, and staff-based non-profits that do have substantial bases but are unable to empower rank-and-file community leadership. In other words, there are few efforts to organize working Asia…

Erasing People through Disinformation

Collectively, Syrian experiences from the Revolution to the present pose a fundamental challenge to the world as it appears to these people. Syrians who directly opposed the Assad regime, often at great cost, did not do so because of some Western imperialist plot, but because decades of abuse, bruta…

The Vicious Circle

When I see the cruel face of Derek Chauvin, I see the faces of those psychically damaged boys and the vicious obsession of men like my sister’s ex-husband to satisfy their insatiable craving for violence. It is well known that a remarkably high proportion of white cops come from families in which…

Rosa Luxemburg and Postcolonial Criticism

Georg Adler, Peter Hudis, and Annelies Laschitza, eds., The Letters of Rosa Luxemburg. (London: Verso Books, 2011).Rory Castle, “‘All the hidden, bitter tears”: Family, Identity and the shaping of revolutionary ‘Red Rosa,’” International Rosa Luxemburg Conference (Chicago, 2018), [] Kim…

We’re on Our Own

But Texas’s energy grid was not designed to split Texas from the Eastern and Western Grids out of a desire for political separatism. It was, in part, designed to avoid the widespread power outages of the 1960s and 70s, the energy crises of the 1970s and 80s, and later organized to avoid the disast…

Radical Hamilton

My book Radical Hamilton: Economic Lessons from a Misunderstood Founder (Verso, 2020) offers a reinterpretation of the American Revolution, examining the political economy of the war effort, the postwar slump, and the plethora of violent social and economic conflicts of the 1780s. The book also read…

Lessons from Hong Kong’s Fight for Democracy

The first and most important strategy was to “decentralize” and “distribute” organizing. From the very beginning, the anti-extradition movement rejected having formal leadership. The movement adopted this partly in reaction to the defeat of the last expression of Hong Kong’s democracy move…

Fuck Mindfulness Workshops

As Marisol Le Bron’s powerful account of the strike documents, a municipal employee approached the young people with an offer of $10 an hour to “work” at the University. On an archipelago, Le Bron noted, “with official unemployment statistics hovering above 16 percent and where the federal m…

“We Fought and We Won”: Teacher Organizing in Philadelphia

A 100 percent. That’s what I mean by this has been a demonstration of us managing up. We had gotten random emails from teachers who just decided, “Hey, by the way, Caucus, I’m sorry I didn’t vote for you guys.” We’ve gotten like 10 of those emails. “You guys clearly are doing work that…

False Profits

These “minority checks”1 are littered throughout the document and new ones are regularly devised. In chapters 9 and 10, Parenti details the range of federal powers transferred from the states to Article I which can be activated by the Article I “necessary and proper” and Article VI supremacy…

Just Imagine, My Dear, It Won’t Be Painless

In 1872, José Hernández published an epic poem, Martín Fierro, the eponymous story of an outlaw Argentine gaucho, or cowboy. The text was canonized over the years, seen as a special window into the nineteenth-century national soul of Argentina. In form and content, Gabriela Cabezón Cámara’s s…

Roundtable on China

PROMISE LIOn one level, I think it was a very emotionally driven piece. I felt like on the one hand it’s kind of coming from a personal place. But tactically speaking, it’s about what you’re saying, how the movement has alienated so many people and so many different international allies. In th…
