We are presenting an English translation of the 7th cuaderno of Emancipation's Cuadernos de formación marxista in pdf format. Emancipation, who as we have mentioned in the translation of the Report of the First Congress, constitutes a part of that which we refer to as the "party in the making". It is the internationalist communist organization behind both Escuela de Marxismo (which concentrates on historical in...

We are presenting an English translation of the 5th part of Emancipation's Cuadernos de formación marxista (in pdf format).

We are republishing an English translation of an incredibly important document, the First Congress of "Emancipation". The translation can also be found in the Emancipation blog. We consider this newly formed organization, composed of militants from three different countries, to constitute a part of that which we refer to as the "party in the making".

As pointed out in the document:

"Since the Manifesto of 1848, we communist...

English translation of Nuevo Curso's Hambre: dos ideas claras

It is impossible to read the data in the new UN report on food and food security without being consumed by rage. World hunger has been growing since 2014 and now affects more than 820 million people. If we also take into account what FAO refers to as "moderate food insecurity", we’d understand that hunger is a reality that permanently accompanies the lives of 2,014 m...

The anti-abortion movement, referred to by its followers as the "pro-life" movement, is often explained by leftists as being the mere product of the sexism and religious fanaticism of conservatives. But reducing it to sexism or religious fanaticism prevents us from explaining why it had become a mass movement or why the Republicans, led by Trump, are now more interested than ever in strengthening it.

Cathol...

When we unearth the origins of the American feminist discourse on reproduction and "birth control," nothing but the underlying fears and skeletons of the American petty bourgeoisie make their appearance: puritanism, eugenics, classism, Malthusianism, racism, and an unambiguous commitment to imperialist warfare. This discourse has accompanied, sometimes in the foreground, sometimes in the background, one o...

"Luther King's policy is summed up in one of his radio speeches:

"Kick me, I'll love you anyway; spit on me and I'll continue to love you".

The civil rights movement in the U.S. is often represented as a movement against racial discrimination and segregation that fought for the rights of a "black community" that shares homogen...

Isolated and frustrated by the lack of activity, not a few communist militants view social media as a way to channel their energy. But they’re wrong. Getting 15 likes on a comment in Facebook against a Stalinist troll may stroke their ego, but it doesn’t bring us one millimeter closer to communism.

We all have friends like this. They tell us of epic virtual battles as though they were in a Game of Thrones e...

U.S. state capitalism has given unions a quite minor role in the institutional and political architecture. Unlike the fascisms - from Italy to Argentina - and the postwar models - from Stalinist to the so-called European "welfare states" - it hardly even gives them a secondary role. To understand the cause, which is in turn the origin of so many differences in political discourse and the justification and...

This our translation of Nuevo Curso's article "La Izquierda Comunista no fue Comunista de Izquierda"

To cram the historic Communist Left in with so-called "communization" in the catch-all that is "left communism" is a nonsense that reveals itself to be a political ploy once we closely study what "communization" really is and take it apart.

What was the "Communist Left"?

We call the Communist Left the internationalist movement tha...

We are publishing an English translation of the second part of "Clase revolucionaria, organización política, y dictadura del proletariado," published in "Alarma." Both parts of the article deal with the question of class consciousness and political organization. Munis' understanding of the relation of the class to revolutionary theory is laid out in both parts of the article and it informed his critiques of Bordigism, Lenin, a...

The negative reactions to our critique of feminism have varied from accusations of sexism to more resigned criticisms where we have been reproached for "focusing too much" on the subject.

Lying behind these disagreements is a fear of losing "the opportunity" to "connect" with a movement that is massive and is showcased in the media as it befits every ideology of the state.

There are those who accept that feminism is a bourg...

Introduction by Workers’ Offensive:

We in Workers’ Offensive understand that unions, although they played a progressive role in the history of the workers’ movement when capitalism was on its ascendant phase, have become organs of the capitalist state and, therefore, can no longer be "treated" as though they are unitary organizations of the working class. Similarly, we believe that "for Marxists, parliamentarianism was always a...

Edited by Nuevo Curso. This is the fourth part of the series on American socialism

Daniel de León played a central role in the formation of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), and would later confront the growing anarchist and anti-political element that threatened to decentralize and disperse the workers movement. This battle within the IWW is often misrepresented as demonstrative of Daniel de Leon's "sectarianism", whe...

The Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) is today a myth of anarchism and anarcho-syndicalism. However, it was born as part of the conscious effort of American Marxists to overcome craft unionism, which divided workers from the same workforce, in favor of "class unionism" or "new unionism," as Engels had defined it.
