UKRAINE: POPULAR UPRISING IN THE SHADOW OF PUTIN’S RUSSIA — by Kevin Anderson
Ukraine has experienced a popular uprising with serious
contradictions, among them the presence of right-wing nationalism and
a tilt toward neoliberal capitalism.  It has since been threatened by
Putin’s Russia, which fears above all a similar uprising in Moscow.

[VIDEO] TRANSCENDING CAPITALISM, IN THEORY AND IN PRACTICE — by Peter Hudis and Sarah Mason
Hudis gives an overview of his MARX’S CONCEPT OF THE ALTERNATIVE TO CAPITALISM (Haymarket 2013), with a comment by former Occupy LA
activist Mason.

ON THE DEATH OF TONY BENN — by Richard Abernethy
In 1992, we organised a speaking tour for Peter Hudis in England and Scotland. To our surprise, Tony Benn sponsored a meeting in the Houses of Parliament. An unlikely setting for a Marxist-Humanist meeting – we all had to pass through a police security check to attend. I recall a very large and lively meeting.

VOLUNTARISM & HUMANISM: REVISITING DUNAYEVSKAYA’S CRITIQUE OF MAO — by Aye Richi
Informed by Dunayevskaya’s discussion of voluntarism and humanism as two kinds of subjectivity, this article analyzes the People’s Communes, the Cultural Revolution, and the Hundred Flowers Movement in China under Mao Zedong.

TRACING THE CONTOURS OF ANTI-CAPITALISM — by Criticism &c.
A review of David Black’s THE PHILOSOPHICAL ROOTS OF ANTI-CAPITALISM.

CRITIQUE OF THE BLACK BLOC — by Kevin Anderson
A review of SHUTTING DOWN THE STREETS: POLITICAL VIOLENCE AND SOCIAL CONTROL IN THE GLOBAL ERA, by Amory Starr, Luis Fernandez, and Christian Scholl.
