Covid, Capitalism, Strikes & Solidarity: An Interview with Asia Art Tours

Communism is inherently internationalist, that requires learning about the largest fraction of the global proletariat, working in the largest technological complexes. But reading books isn’t really solidarity.

Delivery Workers, Trapped in the System

“For all those riders who are still fighting against time on the road, all I can do is to pray quietly for them in my heart.”

Scaling the Firewall, 1: #LiftTheBucket

Worker memes on Douyin (the Chinese version of TikTok) — first in a series on social media in China

Worker organising under the pandemic: reflections from China

The impact of job losses and declining incomes on workers’ lives is much greater than before. This has repressed the beginning of a renewed period of struggle. However, this has not affected the willingness of workers who have fought directly before.

Measuring the Profitability of Chinese Industry: Data Brief

Overall, we identify a clear decline in the profitability of the Chinese economy over time, and particularly since either 2008 or 2010, depending on the measure. At the same time, the trend in Chinese industry specifically has been slightly different.

Welcome to the Frontlines: Beyond Violence and Nonviolence

The concept of “the frontline,” as developed in Hong Kong since 2014, helps to overcome the old divide between militant and peaceful protest. Those on the frontlines take personal risks to protect those around them, helping to push forward the movement as a whole, including those performing less dangerous but equally important roles.

身体分裂的神灵:致香港的一封信

香港人诉诸美国势力虽然不一定没用,但效果有限。既然只有一个美国势力把舵的全球经济系统,香港也就不可能与大陆分割,加入另一个影响圈里。

Remolding Hong Kong: A View of the Movement from the Mainland

Translated interview with two Chinese Marxists, on state efforts to take advantage of the city’s unrest for the benefit of mainland capital’s global ambitions

Free to move, forced to move: The present state of the hukou system

As with “immigration reform” in the U.S. and Europe, changes to China’s household registration policy represent not the erosion of this system of population control, but accommodation to changes in the broader structure of production.

Hooligan Sparrow: 15 Years of Feminist Struggle

Translated update on the status of Ye Haiyan following the repression of feminists in China since 2015. (Intake from a reader.)

社会传染

随着资本主义的长期危机具备了似乎非经济的性质,新传染病、饥荒、洪涝和其他“自然”灾害将会被用作延伸国家管控的理由,对这些危机的响应也将越来越发挥这样的功能,成为执行新的、未经测试的反叛乱工具的机会。一以贯之的共产主义政治学必须同时把握这两个事实。

Left to Rot: The Crisis in China’s Pension System

Translation of an article from Tootopia: ‘The so-called pension fund deficit is, in essence, the seizure of social insurance funds for investment. And this is a problem brought about by the overaccumulation of capital.’

Social Contagion

As the secular crisis of capitalism takes on a seemingly non-economic character, new epidemics, famines, floods and other “natural” disasters will be used as a justification for the extension of state control, and the response to these crises will increasingly function as an opportunity to exercise new and untested tools for counterinsurgency. A coherent communist politics must grasp both of these facts together.

The Divided God

Appeals to US power by Hong Kongers, while not necessarily useless, can have only a limited effect. Since there is a single global system helmed by American power, it is impossible for Hong Kong to secede from the mainland and join a different sphere of influence.

Trade War or Redistribution of Wealth? (Wildcat on China at the End of 2019)

“it is not the tariffs that cause the slowdown, but the slowdown and the expiration of China’s growth model that pushes the government to adopt a more assertive, repressive and nationalistic approach”

Summer in Smoke

It was only a matter of time before it happened. The protesters and the cops both knew it. On October 1st, a teenager was shot point-blank in the chest by police. The bullet missed his heart by approximately three centimeters.

起義三個月

香港左翼团体“黑窗”与CrimethInc第二次访谈的中文翻译,探讨“返送中”运动中的局限和突破点、反动因素和进步的希望。

Why are informed Beijingers increasingly baffled by the struggle in Hong Kong?

Letter from a reader summarizing comments from otherwise liberal-minded office workers in Beijing, who have more access to accurate news about the situation in HK than most people in China

Three months of insurrection

Detailed timeline & in-depth, analytical interview with a collective in Hong Kong on the pros & cons of the movement so far
