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.

    Recent months see a big increase in MIM Notes distribution, but December is a month when many activities grind to a halt for the holidays. The most encouraging number in this report is the increase in pages taken per day. As MIM expands its readership, we expect that ever-wider circles of people will have slightly less serious interest in politics and thus read fewer pages per reader. 60% growth in pages taken is a good number as we widen our readership.
