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.

PIRAO

People's Internationalist Rear-Area Organization

Page created and maintained by [email protected]

PIRAO originated as an organization seeking to tap those people seeking a disciplined structure to work within. Thanks to a shortage of leaders and the huge influence of the petty-bourgeoisie, PIRAO has ceased to grow along those lines.

It remains the task of PIRAO to work on "infrastructural" matters for the communist movement, as opposed to agitation or theory work. "How to" questions of the web work, money, translation, distribution and everything else are the domain of the PIRAO. PIRAO seeks to popularize such work and also streamline the learning tasks involved. The web page and MIM Notes are the main means of communicating these "how to" lessons.

It remains true that most people come into contact with the communist movement through agitation and hence RAIL is a commonsense place to start. Nonetheless, there are those who make urgent contributions to the struggle without ever putting up a poster, getting a petition signature or convincing anyone of anything. PIRAO is the recognition by MIM of such comrades in the struggle.

Within MIM circles, it is PIRAO that has authorization to talk about concrete details and numbers of the communist movement's work without encouraging people to abandon line. It is PIRAO's hope that it contributes to concrete understanding without surrendering the line prepared by the Theory Ministry and as the best background support to RAIL and MIM agitation.
