Following the steps of other “opposition” voices in countries like Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia, and Ukraine, the western-backed Hongkongers demand U.S. intervention through unilateral measures.

Cuba condemns interference in China’s internal affairs

Granma | September 05, 2019


Over the last few weeks we have noted with concern the succession of violent demonstrations and acts of vandalism in the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong, encouraged from abroad, attempting to disrupt the political, economic and social order, and create insecurity in the People’s Republic of China.

Hong Kong’s return to Chinese sovereignty in 1997 was an act of historical justice and an expression of the peaceful spirit of the People’s Republic of China, despite having been victim of the imposition of unequal treaties by imperialist powers.

An axis of hope, dignity and defiance stands up to the triumvirate of evil

Axis of hope

We must arm ourselves with theologies of liberation and a spirituality of resistance if we are to successfully challenge and overcome the forces of the Empire that we are up against.

In these times, many in the Americas and the Caribbean are giving in to geo-political fatalism. Their argument is that because we are located in the so-called “backyard” of the Empire, we must inevitably accept the mark of the beast.  We have survived centuries of enslavement and colonialism no thanks to such forces, but because of those revolutionary leaders, governments and movements throughout history that have never, and will never acquiesce.

On 10 August, the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, led by President Nicolas Maduro, following in the footsteps of the great freedom fighters of the Americas and the Caribbean, launched a global campaign, #NoMoreTrump. The campaign is a defiant appeal to us, the peoples of the world, to stand with the people of Venezuela, to oppose Trump’s war of attrition against this heroic sovereign nation, whose only sin is daring to claim its right to self-determination and true independence.

Capitalism, Imperialism, and their Genocidal Consequences by Rainer Shea

by Rainer Shea

Eloquent mural in Venezuela. The mouse are the “vendepatrias” (the upper class elements allied with Washington), “who sell the motherland.”

The story of how America became an empire is one where a group of ambitious and egotistical men rationalized implementing a governing model which would lead to massive death and suffering. Its main forerunner was Theodore Roosevelt, a narcissistic politician from an upper-class household who was determined to turn his childhood obsession with war into a foreign policy model which would make the United States into a conquering nation. He and the other political elites who supported the Spanish-American War and the subsequent rush to empire received support from William Randolph Hearst, the businessman who used his vast newspaper network to manufacture public opinion for war because war stories would help him sell papers better than the lurid gossip that he otherwise used to gain the public’s attention.
