Liberal Feminism Is an Imperialist Project

U.S. imperialism is responsible for the conditions facing women in Afghanistan today and others like them all across the world. Liberal feminism, with its reliance on the imperialist capitalist state, will never liberate the working class and poor women.

How Biden Funded Colombia’s Deadly Police Regime

Biden played a key role in empowering the ESMAD police force that is now being used to crush dissent in Colombia. This is all the more reason the U.S. Left must make solidarity with the Colombian working class a priority.

As Biden Moves Away from Neoliberalism, What Next?

The plans and priorities he presented show that the Biden administration and its allies are betting on a departure from traditional neoliberal approaches to ensure that the United States can claw its way out of its current political, economic, and social crises and rebuild itself in its own image as the undisputed imperialist powerhouse of the world.
