This is an archive of the former website of the Maoist Internationalist Movement, which was run by the now defunct Maoist Internationalist Party - Amerika. The MIM now consists of many independent cells, many of which have their own indendendent organs both online and off. MIM(Prisons) serves these documents as a service to and reference for the anti-imperialist movement worldwide.


Mao Zedong came to power in China in 1949 after liberating it from Japanese and Amerikan imperialists and defeating the landlords' political party. Social progress under Mao was unprecedented among countries that started in the same semi-feudal and semi-colonial conditions. Much of what Mao did is directly applicable in countries with similar conditions.

China is also the basis of the world's most advanced experiences in class struggle under socialism. The experiences of the Cultural Revolution are of universal importance, not just in the semi-feudal and semi-colonial countries. At stake is nothing less than understanding how to prevent revolutions from dying in counter-revolutionary ebb.
