Today’s Blurb

The El Paso Salt War of 1877 is an example of a people’s revolt. The Mexicans in the country banded together along lines of race and class, taking direct action in response to the political chicanery of foreigners. The mob’s action was not based on an abstract political ideology, but was an emotional response to the oppression. It was a class struggle against the rich, powerful gringo establishment. It became a people’s revolt against a foreign occupier’s domination.

From “Occupied America: A History of Chicanos” by Rodolfo Acuna, 2nd Ed.

Malcolm X Block Party

The Malcolm X Block Party went really well. We got out a lot of good agitprop that was well received by the diverse crowd made up of mostly of Blacks, Mexicanos/Chicanos and the more rebellious of local white youth. Thanks to Communities United Against Police Brutality for putting this event together.

White Amerikkka Won’t Rehabilitate Itself

“We have never lynched, we have never shot, we have never burnt a church, we have never beaten people, we have never taken them to jail. That is the question for white amerika. The real question is can she civilize herself before we get ready to civilize her.” [sic]
-Stokely Carmichael

RAIM-Denver has the answer.

No, white-amerikkka will not “civilize herself”. Amerikkka is defined by its reactionary oppressor role in the world. Instead, the people of the world are going to have to “civilize” it.

We can’t be standing around waiting for Amerikkka to break with its 500 year tradition of oppression and reaction and expect it to all of a sudden act in some sort of common accord with interests of the broad people.

In fact, it’s impossible. From a materialist perspective, the fact that Amerikkka is an imperialist power puts it at fundamental odds with the people of the world. In what amounts to parasitic relationship maintained with the third world, Amerikkka, as it is, is dependent on a vast sea of super-cheap third world labor. To say Amerikkka is [somehow and for some reason but sometime soon] going to fix the problem of vast global inequalities is outrageous.

It is up to the people of the world (read: exploited nations in the third world, oppressed nations, and progressive elements within otherwise oppressor classes) to enforce upon amerikkka a situation whereby it can no longer brutalize and disempower the people of the world.

Quotations of Lin Biao

Ok, so by now we all know the truth about Amerikkka. We know that Amerikkka is really just a white settler nation: a reactionary nation only made possible by the largest land grab in history, the subsequent genocide and internal colonization of First Nations and the internal colonization of Blacks and Mexicans. We know that today Amerikkkan imperialism is a force that enslaves the people of the world underneath its economic (not to mention, military) terrorism.

So lets see what Lin Biao has to say about the situation.

Quotations of Lin Biao
From Long Live the Victory of People’s War

U.S. imperialism has further weakened itself by occupying so many places in the world, over-reaching itself, stretching its fingers out wide and dispersing its strength, with its rear so far away and its supply lines so long.

At present, the main battlefield of the fierce struggle [between the people of the world on one side and U.S. imperialism and its lackeys on the other] is the vast area of Asia, Africa and Latin America.

The struggles waged by the different peoples against U.S. imperialism reinforce each other and merge into a torrential world-wide tide of opposition to U.S. imperialism… When the U.S. aggressors are hard pressed in one place, they have no alternative but to loosen their grip on others. Therefore, the conditions become more favourable for the people elsewhere to wage struggles against U.S. imperialism and its lackeys.

When committing aggression in a foreign country, U.S. imperialism can only employ part of its forces, which are sent to fight an unjust war far from their native land and therefore have a low morale, and so U.S. imperialism is beset with great difficulties.

The people subjected to its aggression are having a trial of strength with U.S. imperialism neither in Washington or New York, neither in Honolulu nor Florida, but are fighting for independence and freedom on their own soil. Once they are mobilized on a broad scale, they will have inexhaustible strength.

Every people or country in the world that wants revolution, independence and peace cannot but direct the spearhead of its struggle against U.S. imperialism.

A Message to the Youth of White Amerikkka

White youth,

We have good and bad news for you. The good news is that you happened to be born into one of the most privileged strata of human society. The bad news is that the privilege that you were born into is based on the super exploitation of the Third World and the oppression of various non-white nations within the borders of amerikkka itself. And worse, this privilege awarded by imperialism will not last forever as oppressed people around the world continually struggle for global justice and equality. The fact is amerikkka has a whole lot of crimes to account for- and moreover, white-amerikkka will be held to accountable by the people of the world for those crimes.

But don’t worry, there is one more piece of good news. You don’t have to be your average white oppressor. You don‘t have to be a total enemy of the world‘s people. And though white-amerikkka will be held accountable for its crimes, there is nothing to say that you can‘t today voluntarily admit to white-amerikkka’s historic and concurrent predatory nature and consciously start working in the service of the world’s oppressed and exploited masses. It is essentially a subjective role-reversal. Whereas before you are just another white youth floating along in decadent amerikkka on your way toward full oppressor status, you would now be a white amerikan who fights for the global proletariat- you would essentially be a traitor to your imperial class and a fighter for global social justice and real democracy.

Any white amerikkkan who “isn’t doing anything” is in fact doing something. They are acting as a social prop for imperialism and at the same time absorbing value (wealth) that is being transferred primarily from the Third World. While you can’t totally stop absorbing wealth and privilege, you can fight the basis of that privilege- you can fight to end Amerikkka’s imperialist plunder of the world. In this manner and this manner alone, are you any sort of “friend” towards the people of the world.

So don’t grow up to be another reactionary white parasite that has to be outright defeated by the forces of worldwide peoples’ movements. Defect to the side of the oppressed and exploited majority and join the Revolutionary Anti Imperialist Movement- Denver in the fight against white amerikkka’s global tyranny!

Banner at May Day March

elinvasor.jpg

This Mexican national liberation banner reads “Government! Oppressor! You are the invader!” It displays the borders of Mexico and occupied northern Mexico. RAIM-D agrees with our re-unificationist comrades that the amerikkkan government is the real invader. The problem isn’t just the amerikkkan government, the problem is the white nation as a whole — this message was hammered home by RAIM-D’s flyers. RAIM-D supports national liberation of oppressed nations and the destruction of amerikkka.

No Instant Amnesty For White Amerikkka

Amerika, all of which sits on stolen land, has some serious crimes to account for. One of these crimes is the aggressive theft of Northern Mexico and the continued exploitation of its peoples. For all its warm liberal appearances, Amerika has yet to account for it historic mistreatment of Mexicans and Blacks. Not reparations, not land, not shit. Only more oppression from white Amerika.

White people will not just get a free pass for their historic and concurrent crimes- there will be no instant amnesty for white amerikkka. Instead, white people must undergo some sort of amnesty “program”. A simple list of what such a program could include would be as follows:

Land and Self Determination for Chican@/Mexican@ peoples in Aztlan
Land an Self Determination for Blacks in the Black Belt
Land and Self Determination for the descendents of the First Nations
Reparations to the above groups
Reparations or labor in kind to the Third World

Keep in mind, that’s just a sample. Try thinking up your own list of how white amerika can repay its debt to society.

But one thing is certain: there will be no instant amnesty for white amerika.

Give it up whitey, you owe back rent.

The march was rather long and at this point it had reached a gentrified area near “lodo” by downtown Denver. Note the nice condos on the left- nice gentrified white middle class condos built on stolen land. Give it up whitey..

You’d be surprised how well a flyer that says “deport white people” goes over

You’d be surprised how well a flyer that says “deport white people” goes over with Chican@/Mexican@ youth. At least that was the case with the May 1st Denver ‘immigration’ rights march where we distributed over 700 flyers with that very slogan. Also of interest is that our estimates point to over 80 hits to the blog directed from these flyers in the first 10 hours alone. To put this another way, 11% of our flyers directed a persyn to check out the blog. This is a much higher hit rate that previous mass flyer distributions. It just goes to show that there is no point in playing white-amerikkka’s game of white-washing everything up to and including so-called radical politics.

White liberals often say that Amerika was founded by immigrants and that’s what made it great. This is a load of shit. Amerika was founded by settlers: a white nation that stole what is now called Amerika while murdering a whole lands of people and enslaving blacks. Unless you were white, there was never anything great about it.

Global Terrorist Alert

U.S. Imperialism

unclesam.gif

White Male, 231 years old, fat, lazy, ignorant, smells like swine.

Armed and dangerous. Approach with extreme caution.

The only nation to ever you nuclear weapons against another country, this international thug has been abusing the world’s people for centuries.

Starting out as a renegade sect of European criminals and colonizers, this United Snakes is at the top of the People’s Most Wanted list. Its long history of crimes include: the proliferation of WMDs and the use of chemical, biological and radiological weapons against civilian populations; the enslavement of entire peoples; the theft of land, resources and labor; subverting democracy all around the world; and mass murder and genocide. This global terrorist network must be stopped!

U.S. Imperialism will be held accountable for it innumerous crimes but it will take a concerted effort on behalf of the world’s people to bring this global madman to justice. Join the effort to stop this global reign of terror once and for all.

Update 3-22-07

In the spirit of rebelling against white-Amerikkka’s reactionary “education” we’ve added a Recommended Readings page. Most of what we recommend is linked and can be read online.

Also, don’t forget about the Denver Zinefest on Saturday the 24th. It’s at the Andenken Gallery, 2110 Market Street (the corner of 21st and Market). We’ll be there with tons of anti-imperialist revolutionary literature.

Students Walk-Out Against the War

Today hundreds of students from a number of local schools participated in a walk-out to protest the war against the Iraqi people. Meeting at Auraria before making their way down the 16th Street Mall, the mass of [overwhelmingly Chican@/Mexican@] students converged on the steps of the State Capitol to make their voices heard.

RAIM-Denver was there supporting not only an end to this agressive war but also to support national liberation of oppressed nations. Additionally, we distributed a number of flyers {see next post} encouraging the anti-war youth to fight against Amerikkka’s lies with the truth- to fight against Amerikkka’s reactionary “education” with revolutionary study and practice.

Truly inspiring, these students (again, mostly Mexican@/Chican@ with small portions of Black and White youth) are on their way to rejecting the future that Amerikkka has for them and leading the struggle from within its illegitimate borders to end its global oppression and tyranny.

It’s Right To Rebel Against White-Amerikkka’s White-Washed “Education”

When white-amerikkka says “education” it means social programming. It means conforming to white-Amerikkka’s values and norms. Instead of teaching you how to think critically, it teaches you how to be another stupid fat cracker AmeriKKKan. This is the “education” Amerikkka gives you.

According to white-Amerikkka, your job is to fall in line and swallow its lies- its white-washed “truth”. It teaches you history from the perspective of an oppressor- the person and society that reaped the benefits from 400 years of genocide and national oppression- not the history of those that were oppressed and mass murdered by Amerikkka. It teaches you to be a reactionary, not a revolutionary.

If you see through this rotten system and have the will to topple it then you need more than the “education” that white-Amerikkka throws at you. You need a revolutionary education. You need to know history from the side of the oppressed- not from the side of whitey. Your brain dead teachers can’t give this to you. All they can do is regurgitate the white man’s lies and be an apologist for global white supremacy. Oh no, amerikkka ain’t going to give you an education in anti-imperialism- an education in anti-amerikkkanism. No, you have to take up this task yourselves.

Face it, white-AmeriKKKa and its prison schools are not going to teach you this shit. They don’t teach you about Zapata. They don’t teach you about Malcolm X or Huey Newton. They don’t teach you about Vladimir Lenin or Mao Zedong. They ain’t going to teach you how to free yourself and liberate your people- the people of the world- from its tyranny.

What they are going to do is indoctrinate you into amerikkkan culture- the same culture that is built off 400 years of genocide, land theft, slavery, wars of aggression and its imperialist domination of the third world. They want to make you one of them: an AmeriKKKan. They want to make you their complacent model citizen: one that doesn’t mind that Amerikkka is sitting on stolen land and that they’re all parasites living off dead “Indians” and the Third World. This is the “education” that Amerikkka has for you.

So if you are a revolutionary then you need to get a revolutionary education- not white-amerikkka’s indoctrination. This comes both through study and practice. This means dedicating yourself to learning things on your own time that are not being taught at school and then taking what you have learned and applying it while you are there.

So quit waiting around for white-amerikkka to tell you anything close to the truth. Instead, rebel against white-amerikkka, start learning the truth yourself, and start throwing it back in its face!

It’s Right To Rebel Against White-Amerikkka!

Fight Amerikkka and Its White-Washed “Education” With Revolutionary Education!

Dead Prez

Dead Prez played in Denver last night and the Revolutionary Anti Imperialist Movement was there agitating against U.S. aggression and promoting the upcoming March 17th anti-war protest.

Keeping it real to the cause, M1 and Sticman took time out of their set to talk about the importance of disciple, community and above all the need to organize. RAIM-Denver agrees 100%, especially about the need to organize an anti-imperialist mass movement within the United States itself.

After the performance, RAIM-Denver had the opportunity to pass Dead Prez a packet of reading materials. We sincerely hope they found the packet both enjoyable and educational and we look forward from hearing from them in the future.

If there is a concert or event that you think RAIM-Denver should be at, email us at raim-d@hush.com and let us know.

RAIM-Denver on the aggressive war against the Iraqi people.

RAIM-Denver’s stance on the war.

Since we are publicly involved with the March 17th Coalition, a local committee that is organizing the anti-war protest scheduled for March 17th, we would like to take the opportunity to clarify our position on Amerika’s war of aggression against Iraq.

It is the position of RAIM-Denver that we stand for the majority oppressed and exploited in the Third World and especially support them when they are engaged in active struggle against imperialism, particularly Amerikan imperialism. This extends to all peoples and groups in Iraq who are not only resisting but actively fighting back against the Amerikan occupation forces, the U.$.-installed puppet government and its various other interests in the region.

VICTORY TO THE IRAQI NATIONAL RESISTANCE FORCES!

BEAT BACK THE AMERIKKKA PIGPIRE IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND ALL AROUND THE WORLD!!

Turn The World Upside-Down!!

 

 

The Revolutionary Anti-Imperialist Movement- Denver is a loosely organized local network of dedicated radicals. RAIM-Denver fights for a world free of oppression by nations over nations, groups over groups and people over people. We fight to end imperialism, national oppression, patriarchy youth and class oppression.

We fight against those with power in the interest of those with none. Smashing imperialism is the starting point for ending all oppression. We concentrate our fight against a handful of rich First World nations which live off the exploitation of the majority of peoples in the Third World.

We want to turn the world upside-down. We advocate stripping power from the oppressors and uplifting the oppressed. We advocate overthrowing amerika’s domination of the world and distributing that power amongst the community of poor nations, which make up the vast majority of the world.

The main task of RAIM-Denver is to help build a counterculture of radicalism within imperialist amerika. We use written word, speech, art and action to promote revolutionary thought and practice. We promote a social climate of radicalism as a way to combat and organize against amerika’s empire-driven oppressor culture.

We work outside of typical activist scenes to build a revolutionary undercurrent of anti-imperialism and anti-amerikanism. We intend to lay the foundation for a broad radical underground within amerika. Don’t sit there while the everything gets tipped over and smashed. Join the movement of revolutionary anti-imperialism and help turn the world upside down!
