Here is a terrible, truly terrible, piece on #Georgia in @jacobin magazine. I won’t link to it, it's not worth your time, other than to show just how truly deluded many socialists in the US are, in making excuses for the #SovietUnion & #Russia. 1/n
That part really deserves attention and key takeaway: don’t trust a *single* paragraph of what you read in #Jacobinmag, if you do not know the issue yourself. (hello @DemSocialists) CC @ichbinilya @GilbreathDustin 2/
"Since the end of the Soviet Union, Western-oriented development has not only failed to address Georgia’s problems but reinforced them." With all these falsehoods, one doesn't even know where to begin. 3/n

African Internationalism discussing Russia/Ukraine struggle as part of negating #colonial #capitalist narrative being spread to paint Russia as aggressor while exposing the US & other European imperialist powers role as instigator/orchestrator of crisis:

"It is no secret that White Power is working overtime to shut down any form of communication from #Russia to parts of the world - which means that most of the #propaganda churned out by the colonial capitalists goes uncontested."
"The same US #imperialism that was built on #slavery, #genocide, & colonialism, is now posturing as the moral & political authority of the world. The US colonial capital state murders African people inside the US every single day... Floyd, Locke, Taylor, & millions of others."

The World Socialist Web Site will be posting later today a comprehensive statement on the outbreak of war in #Ukraine. This is a preliminary outline of the position of the International Committee of the Fourth International (ICFI): 1/
Despite US/NATO provocations and threats, Russia's invasion of Ukraine must be opposed by socialists and class conscious workers. The catastrophe that was set in motion by the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991 cannot be averted on the basis of Russian nationalism. 2/
What is required is not a return to the pre-1917 foreign policy of tsarism, but, rather, a revival, in Russia and throughout the world, of the socialist internationalism that inspired the October Revolution and led to the creation of the Soviet Union as a workers state. 3/

1\ Canada's experience of American #imperialism, in a nutshell: The personal agendas of opinionated Americans who don't stop to gather local context or feedback, before opining on how totalitarian our society is. Vaush is unambiguously wrong in his interpretation.
2\ I didn't see any of the people crying about the Emergency Measures Act in the streets protesting Bill C-51 with us in 2015. When your first ditch is to cry about 'state totalitarianism' on behalf of literal fascists, after decades of left-wing repression it gives up your game.
3\ I say this as someone who spent years researching and helping out with various obstructive economic actions and then spent years protesting nat sec policy in the streets and public hearings on national security. Then I spent years fighting fascists in the streets.

Which is the greater military power: #PRC with 60,000 troops massed on India’s border(for ~2 years) or #RF with 100,000 troops massed on Ukraine border(for ~ 2 months)?
2/rus #Russian massing of troops around Ukraine is not just a message to #USA and #Europe, but also to #China and #India, not to write off its Military power & ability to use it; even though Russia’s economic power is now much less than that of USA, EU, China, India.🧐🤔
3/rus The #Russian’s have learned from the #PRC aggression against India in 2020, which rapidly lost credibility after Galwan. They have done everything to ensure that the threat of invasion is credible enough to achieve their coercive objectives without fighting.

This is scandalous.

"#EmergencyUseVaccine" - as response to polio outbreaks - caused by vaccines.

Nov 13 2020: "#WHO today listed the nOPV2 vaccine for emergency use to address the rising cases of a vaccine-derived polio strain in a # of African & E. Mediterranean countries."
"The emergency use listing, or #EUL, is the first of its kind for a vaccine & paves the way for potential listing of #COVID19 #vaccines."

Children in impoverished/destabilized countries are given an oral vaccine - discontinued in wealthy countries decades ago.

Aired on CBC, 44 yrs ago.

Dr. Jonas #Salk, July 6, 1977:

"We have known now since 1961 in the US, and prior to that in other countries, that the live virus #vaccine for #polio, does cause the disease itself." 👇

1/10War on virus is about cognitive dissonance. Those of us who stood by silent as minority communities were gentrified through the war on drugs, or profited by it, do not imagine being the targets of an epic urban renewal through lockdown measures and vaccine mandates.
2/10War on virus is about destabilization.  The bulk of wage workers as well as business owners who cater to the establishment must collide with those who have realized that their livelihoods are being destroyed or their businesses are being swallowed by large corporate entities.
3/10Communities are divided.  Family members are divided over fear and uncertainty.  We are being primed for further colonization of humanity and nature.

Self-Righteous SADISTIC ORIENTALIST IMPERIALISTS propagandists have been plastering all manner of fake outrage & concerns for the people of Afghanistan. One can't help but wonder where was such outrage & concern for the last 20 years. Image
Never thought the Daily Hate filth would be shocked to see Muslims being killed or are they just shocked the video got out into the public?

Shocking video shows U.S. troops cheering as airstrike blows up Afghan civilians…

Aug 2021: The #pandemic response as contemporary #imperialism

"Progressives often engage in leftist rhetoric, but their proposals always result in strengthening & expanding the existing, inequitable system & further entrenching the current, elite class."…
"The assumption of infallibility & the feeling of entitlement to play God w/ someone else’s health is pure #colonization of other human beings... that someone else’s personal choices about his/her own life should be subordinate to your beliefs is the essence of #imperialism."
"It is an expectation that one can & should dominate others. Such a person is carrying on the storied legacy of the numerous imperialists before them... these people are this era’s imperialist #oppressors, though of course, like all imperialists, they see themselves as #heroes."

As the U.S evacuate its staff from Afghanistan, and as the usual gibberish is being spewed by Faux News and it's warmonger allies, let's remember that it was the Cheney-Bush administration that invaded Afghanistan. #Afghanistan #BushCheney #bushgang
Let's also remember that it was Cheney-Bush and their administration that made up the claim of weapons of mass destruction so that they could invade Iraq. If there were any really dangerous weapons in Iraq, they would have been weapons the U.S sold Iraq to fight Iran. #bush #oil
Let's also remember that it was President Obama who captured Osama Bin Laden, in Pakistan, a country that we had given a great deal of aid, in weapons and access for imports to the U.S. #oilwars #BushCheney #imperialism

Not also from right-wingers, anti-migrant rethoric is also fueled from left-wing such Haiti, says if migrant (usually from US) work in Haiti it will looted Haiti resource and workers ("poor" Haitian is slave of "rich" US) #Haiti #US
Indeed. Haiti must empower local worker over migrant workers (mostly from US), prioritize local investment over foreign investment (as US and Haiti is "strategic" partner). Remember when American "investment" in Haiti displaced Haitian worker?
#Haiti #US #Imperialism
One of U.S. "investment" is Tchako SA, an rice company based in Haiti, actually a subsidiary of Riceland Foods of Arkansas, US. Says it is only benefit US farmer over Haitian Farmers. One of evidence is displacement of Haitian farmer.

The Anglosphere’s entire 300-year model [capitalism + imperialism] is breaking. #SundayThoughts ☕️ Image
2. First, we need an objective review of history. It started with the British—navel based war, colonizing, and “forcing markets open.” Uhh, “free trade,” over the barrel of a white person’s gun.
3. After the British Empire, their model migrated to the United States—today it’s the U.S. military occupying 150 countries, media propaganda to infiltrating societies, forced democracy, USD hegemony, sanctions, and by these means the achievement of globally controlled markets.

Self-determination or #Ethiopia's Decimation? [Thread]:

An Austrian Nazi named Baron Roman Prochazka wrote a book called "Abyssinia: The Powder Barrel" (1935) before Fascist Italy's invasion of Ethiopia.

[Available for Free via @JSTOR & @tsehai:]

[1/8] Image
➡️ Prochazka frames Emperor Haile Selassie I & the Ethiopian empire as a threat to the colonial powers through collusion w/ Japan.

➡️ He proposes tribalization of #Ethiopia & pioneers the term "self-determination" in the Ethiopian context to weaken & fragment the country.

[2/8] ImageImage
➡️ He undermines the "unitary state" & names denominations: "Abyssinians proper (occupying the central part of the country), the Gallas, the Gojjams, & the Kushites of Tigré".

➡️ Colonial rule is proposed as desired to liberate people from "Tyranny of the #Amhara".

India Farmers Protests Goes Vogue.

Celebrities, influencers – & British Vogue - suddenly interested in #FarmersProtests that began in Nov. Despite MASSIVE resistance, the protests have been largely ignored by Western influencers/NGOs, etc. So why now? Let's explore.
Twitter (tool of empire) promoted the #celebrity endorsement of Rihanna/Greta accounts – while it simultaneously banned/censored on the ground Indian farmers/activists. While highlighting Western #influencers, Twitter had deleted approx. 250 protest/alt media accounts in #India.
Rihanna/Thunberg accounts share CNN article which references Access Now, "an advocacy group which tracks internet freedom." In reality, Access began as an arm of Avaaz (Purpose), to destabilize #Iran. Another instrument of #empire.

More on Access Now:…

Today is the #InternationalDayofSolidaritywiththePalestinianPeople. The UN established it in 1977 in the context of anti-imperial resistance, particularly to the United States, which has been blocking pathways to freedom for Palestinians. #Palestinians #Solidarity #Thread
The #Palestinian #Liberation Organization entered the #UN foray in 1974 & immediately helped pass UNGA Res 3236 - a corrective to UNSC Res 242, which normalized Israel's status pre 1967 & reified the juridical erasure of Palestinians as a people w the right to self-determination.
In 1975, the UNGA passed Res 3375 insisting that the PLO be included in the Middle East Peace Process - which the US and Israel excluded vehemently and instead discussed their interests through proxy of other Arab States thus insisting that #Palestinians "do not exist." #Freedom
