Over a decade ago, when the government of Evo Morales took office in Bolivia, only 40,000 Bolivians received gas at home. Today, 3.5 million have access to the service where they live.
The nationalization of the hydrocarbon industry in 2006 resulted in economic progress for Bolivia. It allowed the country to multiply national gas export revenues from two billion dollars in 2005, to 31.5 billion dollars in 2016.Read More »

If there is to be revolution, there must be a revolutionary party. Without a revolutionary party, without a party built on the Marxist-Leninist revolutionary theory and in the Marxist-Leninist revolutionary style, it is impossible to lead the working class and the broad masses of the people in defeating imperialism and its running dogs.
—Mao Tse-Tung, “Revolutionary Forces of the World Unite, Fight Against Imperialist Aggression!” (1948)
It is a new society that we must create, with the help of all our brother slaves, a society rich with all the productive power of modern times, warm with all the fraternity of olden days”. For some examples showing that this is possible, we can look to the Soviet Union.

While the fight was well under way in many parts of the globe, 1917 marked a turning point for anti-colonial movements. It signaled to millions of workers not only that it was possible to end capitalist imperialism, but that it was necessary to destroy the system completely by simultaneously building towards socialism.Read More »
