Marxism and the Black Panther Party

50 years ago today, Fred Hampton, aged 21, was murdered by police while sleeping in his bed—tried, convicted, and executed by the state, guilty only of inspiring others to fight with pride and dignity for a better future.

In the booklet "Marxism and the Black Panther Party" we look back and learn from the successes and failures of one of the most inspiring experiences of our movement: https://www.marxistbooks.com/products/lessons-and-history-of-the-black-panther-party

The #BlackLivesMatter movement today shows clearly that, despite the civil rights struggles of the past, inequality and racism are still thriving in America.

🔥 "Lenin and Trotsky: What They Really Stood For" 🔥
https://www.marxistbooks.com/collections/books/products/lenin-and-trotsky-what-they-really-stood-for

The ideas of Lenin and Trotsky are without doubt the most distorted and slandered in history. For more than 80 years an onslaught from the apologists of capitalism has attempted to present the ideas of Bolshevism as both totalitarian and utopian, equating the crimes of Stalinism with the regime of workers' democracy that existed under Lenin and Trotsky. This books answers the slander and lies, and explains the true heritage of these two great revolutionaries.

It is 50 years since the first publication of this book. It was written as a reply to Monty Johnstone, who was a leading theoretician of the Communist Party of Great Britain. Johnstone had published a reappraisal of Leon Trotsky in the Young Communist League's journal Cogito at the end of 1968.

Alan Woods and Ted Grant used the opportunity to write a detailed reply explaining the real relationship between the ideas of Lenin and Trotsky. This was no academic exercise. It was written as an appeal to the ranks of the Communist Party and the Young Communist League to rediscover the truth about Trotsky and return to the original revolutionary programme of Lenin.

We publish here a review of this book, from the perspective of someone who once believed the lies and slanders about Trotsky that are purported to this day.

Se cumplen este año 100 de la fundación de la Tercera Internacional (Comunista) en marzo de 1919 en Moscú. Dedicamos una parte importante de la revista y la portada a este importante centenario.

De ahí que, la revista incluye un resumen histórico de los debates en los tres primeros congresos publicamos un texto de Mátyás Rákosi; “Una Escuela de Estrategia Revolucionaria” de Trotsky, en el que presenta un informe de la situación internacional y resume los principales debates en la Internacional; “Ascenso y caída de la Internacional Comunista” de Ted Grant, un balance del momento en que Stalin, como gesto a las potencias imperialistas, decide disolver la Internacional en 1943.

Además hay unos artículos dedicados a Cuba. El primero, escrito por Jorge Martín, se trata de la situación actual en la isla con el fortalecimiento de las agresiones imperialistas contra la revolución cubana y un empeoramiento de la situación económica. El segundo expone un histórico seminario internacional, en la Habana, sobre las ideas de León Trotsky en el que estuvo presente el Centro de Estudios Carlos Marx. El último reseña la relación del fundador y mártir del primer Partido Comunista Cubano (Julio Antonio Mella) con la figura y las ideas de Trotsky.

En el penúltimo artículo marcamos el centenario del asesinato de Emiliano Zapata con un artículo de Carlos Márquez.

Finalmente, tenemos un extenso trabajo de Alan Woods sobre la filosofía revolucionaria del marxismo. De manera precisa y muy necesaria, Alan Woods rechaza el marasmo posmoderno de la filosofía burguesa moderna, para reclamar la validez del método dialéctico y explicar sus orígenes históricos.

Today in 1937, the town of Guernica in Spain was bombed to the ground by Nazi and Italian fascists, at the request of Spanish fascist forces during the civil war. In response, Picasso created his most famous masterpiece "Guernica"—used on the cover of our book on the Spanish civil war, "Revolution & Counter-revolution in Spain." Get your copy now here: https://www.marxistbooks.com/collections/books/products/revolution-counterrevolution-in-spain

On this day in 1937, Guernica was destroyed by fascist bombardment, which prompted Picasso to create perhaps the finest painting of the 20th Century. This painting adorns the front cover of our edition of Felix Morrow's excellent history of the Spanish Revolution.
