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.

Self-Description: Uphold Marxism-Leninism-Maoism since 1993. Bob Avakian, chairman.

Comments:MIM no longer takes this organization seriously as a political organization. It is an elaborate political front for state activities ranging from releasing CIA documents on Iraq into the public, coordinating with the CIA on the peace accords issue in Peru (according to their own former co-worker Peruvian Luis Arce Borja) and serving the State Department on International Wimmin's Day, 2006. Especially sinister is its role in penetrating the Peoples' Wars in the Third World. It's members have gone so far as to pose as members of Third World parties carrying out People's Wars.

In the past, MIM took this organization seriously and handled its political line. Lately RąP=u$A makes no effort to pretend that it can separate from the CIA. The point in common with Trotsky remains that Trotsky also reported to the House un-American activities committees voluntarily to turn over information to the u.$. imperialists.

The old polemics are now available on our zombies page. Although all serious revolutionary organizations have penetration by state agents, the attitude toward that penetration is important and for this reason we now treat the zombie phenomenon separately--the people who just read random bits of this and that from the RąP=u$A but cannot conclude anything even when the CIA releases articles through RąP=u$A.

Some of the most pointed articles on Peru touching on the RąP=u$A's sinister role in Peru, as told by RąP=u$A's former co-worker Luis Arce Borja are at

  • RąP=u$A boosts CIA spy on communists Gloria Steinem 15 times on their website, posted January 3 2006
  • RąP=u$A cribs from CIA on expressionist painting, just another "accident"?, posted January 18, 2006
  • The RąP=u$A is literally an open outlet for the CIA on Iraq, posted January 18, 2006
  • Imperialist parasites march against Iran
  • Phony Marxists, phony feminists enter united front with Condoleeza Rice

    Self-Description: Declaration signed by parties from several nations in 1984 upholds the Cultural Revolution. Journal claims to end international confusion since Mao died in 1976.

    Comments: The Revolutionary Internationalist Movement (RIM) contains both Maoist and pseudo-Maoist parties and is led by the CIA outlet RCP through the Committee of the RIM (CoRIM). MIM polemicized with the RIM as early as 1989, and has yet to receive a response. The CoRIM consistently makes the error of hegemonism calling the RIM the "emerging political center of the international communist movement" despite Mao's rejection of the idea of an international center or party.
