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.

Just a note, I keep forgetting to credit people in our central task reports.

PIRAO5 deserves credit for doing the work that makes our circulation upsurge possible. We can call that kind of work Deputy Minister of Distribution. The work for the all-time records in circulation can be chalked up to PIRAO5.

HC123's job contributing to MIM internationalism is difficult to describe. For all practical purposes, HC123 does the vast majority of actual work in our International Ministry (and our International Minister is limited in time by party resolution) and it is HC123 providing a good gob of the glue that keeps our web page together and going forward in foreign languages. Deputy International Minister does not even give full credit to what HC123 is doing. If there would be such a thing as Minister of Internationalism, it would be HC123. The only reason we don't give that title out is that everyone in MIM is supposed to be an internationalist and we don't want to create an impression it can be one department. HC123 deserves the credit for coordinating and doing the work while doing it in a fashion in line with MIM's goals including its central task. It's safe to say anyone can learn someone else's job, but right now, HC123 is unique in contributing to MIM.

It's important for us to acknowledge the contributions of the comrades whenever we can figure it out how to describe it. This is especially true because MIM does not have labor bureaucrats. We have no one making a career out of advancing the international proletariat. That fits in with our notion of the role of the majority-exploiter country comrades and it also makes a virtue out of a weakness that would only change if we suddenly had the money the Sierra Club has for instance.

I know other comrades right now who are also working on things or attempting to work with MIM. As we get into regular working patterns I will figure out how to credit you too.
