Letters from Afar: An Interview with Anakbayan

“Anakbayan (Children of the People) is the comprehensive national-democratic mass organisation of the Filipino youth, organising from all different sectors of the youth, from the communities, students, workers, women, LGBTQ+, national minorities and all other concentrations of youth in the Philippines. It is one of the most steadfast organisations in waging forward the national democratic struggle of the Filipino people against US imperialism and domestic feudalism… Its role in the national-democratic struggle is an important one because without a comprehensive youth organisation, the struggle would die out as there would be no new blood there to carry out its tasks towards its victory.”

The Palestinian Cause is a Cause for Every Revolutionary

Rather than being something unique and otherwordly, something beyond our comprehension due to its age and complexity, the Palestinian struggle is not exceptional. It is one of a broad tapestry of anti-imperialist and anti-colonial struggles. By insisting on their exceptional nature, they are condemned to a suspended animation: endlessly admired and supported for their resistance, but lacking the ability to draw on the successful struggles of others to inform their own.

The Abraham Accords: Imperialist Deception

The Abraham Agreement is a false idol, it has betrayed the Palestinian people who are fighting the diabolical systemic destruction of their nationhood and its words are hypocritical. It is written with the same hands that are drenched in the blood of Palestinians who have been slaughtered in imperial conquest. The agreement only serves to consolidate the imperialist economies in the region and to provide a more advantageous position for further colonisation.

My Experience in Greece: A Case Study Against European Imperialism

I began to witness the true extent of human suffering caused by the EUs crushing austerity. Men and women with crippled limbs prostrated out with open palms begging for money. Desperate men selling pens and stationery on the train in a bid to make ends meet in a country without work. Pampered British expats corralled in Syntagma square while people counted coins to buy loaves of bread a couple of streets away.

Comments on a Failed State

As the US continues to drift towards greater political division, the latest presidential election is a perfect example of what pathological denial can produce when it is utilized by those trying to avoid awkward political issues. Now that Joe Biden has been proclaimed as the winner of the heavily contested US presidential race and with what appears to be the formation of a coup attempt by Trump, the question on everyone’s lips is now what?
