Declaration by the Anti-imperialist Camp on the WTC bombing
The imperialist euphoria that had afflicted the world is dead. The wounded beast is crying. The Emperor has declared war as if he were on a science fiction film set. It is not known to whom, it is not known when, but he will send his mercenaries somewhere to revenge the suffered humiliation. The supposedly biggest military power ever has been hit in its most sensitive point: its alleged invulnerability. After the first moments of panic and disorientation, so-called “national pride” is resurging in the USA thus spreading the most terrible imperialist and revanchist sentiments.
In the poorest countries of the world, where hundreds of thousands of people die of hunger and diseases, many have celebrated the massacre of New York. Among those peoples who in the last decades have been suffering from all kinds of humiliations, aggressions, massacres and injustice, many have cheered in occasion of the twin tower collapse. They see the evil where the rich see the good. … [read more]
Resistance and democracy to be married
Results of the Anti-imperialist Camp, Assisi 2012
23/9/2012 · Anti-Imperialist Camp
In Assisi, the picturesque medieval town symbolising the quest for peace and friendship between Islam and Christianity, the Tahrir movements against the US order in the Arab world came together with the popular protests in Southern Europe against the starvation programmes of the EU oligarchy. It was a unique event bringing the tremendous challenges to the revolutionary movement to the consciousness of the militants.

Why we remain anti-American
14/7/2012 · Anti-Imperialist Camp
A Black president in a country that was founded on slavery and racism—that is a true sensation. We understand and share the joy and satisfaction in the Black communities from Harlem via Chicago to New Orleans.
Editorials in Europe celebrate the victory of someone who does not belong to the WASP elite as the restoration and confirmation of the American Dream—a Black man as elected monarch. The nightmare of the Bush years was supposedly just an aberration that failed, a deviation that is behind us now; the true, liberal America of opportunities is back, bright eyes, bushy tail. … [read more]
International Leninist Current
11/4/2012 · Unanimously approved by the Founding Conference of the ILC
The „International Leninist Current“ (ILC), which ceased to exist about one decade back, was one of the driving forces in the foundation of the “Anti-imperialist Camp” (AIC) at the turn of the millennium. The platform and project of the AIC has been, however, much broader both politically as well as organizationally. Several other forces from other backgrounds have been involved both in the foundation as well as in the further campaigns of the AIC to the effect that the AIC is in not the heir of the ILC.
We nevertheless publish the manifesto of the ILC as it gives a good impression of the stage of discussion and elabouration in the mid 1990s which in one way or another paved the way to the AIC. Spring 2012

Crisis and war ahead
Resolution adopted by the International Assembly
9/1/2010 · By the Anti-imperialist Camp
The historical systemic crisis of capitalism, new geo-political conflicts and the Anti-imperialist Camp's tasks.
a) The collapse of the world economy following the financial crash which erupted in the USA on September 2008 (a crash which had been announced by several creaks in the previous decade) is not one of those cyclical recessions followed by a recovery. It is more of an alarm bell pointing at a historical systemic crisis of western capitalism, in … [read more]
A Post-American World?
The international situation after the rise of Barack Obama
10/1/2009 · Resolution approved by the International Executive Committee of the Anti-Imperialist Camp
The systemic crisis in which American capitalism has fallen will have serious and long-lasting consequences on the whole system of international relations. Because of this, President-elect Barack Obama will not be able to give less importance to foreign policy. In the final years of the 20th century, a few new states have risen to be incipient imperialistic or sub-imperialistic nations. However the United States remain the only omni-dimensional power, i.e., they are the first world power in the military, industrial, agricultural, cultural, technological and scientific field. They will want to keep their supremacy at all costs and will try to distribute and discharge the price of the crisis upon the rest of the world. For this reason we are entering a historical period of utmost instability, which could lead to a period of extended, long-lasting and multi-dimensional open warfare.
*** 1. The systemic crisis, the epicentre of which is found in the United States, will not push the White House towards a policy of “non-intervention” on the global scene as some have foreseen. It will rather lead it to an internationalist imperialism of Wilsonian tradition which, pragmatist as it will be, will show a continuity with the policy of … [read more]
Six years after the beginning
Document adopted by the International Conference of the Anti-imperialist Camp, Vienna, Febuary 2-4, 2008
Taking advantage of the downfall of the USSR, the United States of America have intensified their aggressive policy, knowing well that their global supremacy depends on their ability to wield a steady dominance in this stormy region. Since 1991 Washington pursues the strategic American project, better known as "Great Middle East". This plan does not tolerate any hostile regime (see the Iraqi case) and implies wiping out any anti-imperialist resistance.
  1. The Middle East is the centre of gravity of the global geopolitical system.

Experimental anti-imperialism
A political balance sheet of the Anti-imperialist Camp's itinerary
13/3/2008 · Adopted by the International Conference of the Anti-imperialist Camp, Vienna, 2-4 February, 2008
In our political laboratory the idea of making anti-imperialism the centre of our activity had been already maturing. From these anti-imperialist resistances' would emanate the only bold antagonism being able to seriously rock the imperialist-capitalist system which just had scored one of its biggest historical victories.
Closed cycle of the anti-globalisation movement 1) By the mid 1990s – the world had been still under the impression of the demise of the communist movement – the popular resistance against the liberalist attacks on the system’s periphery has gained once again momentum. The single most emblematic event was the Zapatist uprising in 1994 announcing the end of the … [read more]
Declaration of Intent of the Anti-Imperialist Camp
The Anti-Imperialist Camp is a coordination that was constituted in August 2000 by organisations and movements from all continents. Political differences did not prevent these organisations from coordinating in order to give strength to the common struggle against the common enemy: imperialist globalisation.
We respect all forms of struggle used by all organisations and movements in different countries and different circumstances in order to put an end to exploitation and oppression. The Camp advocates the highest unity in the struggle against the common enemy, declaring that imperialism is the most cruel of all capitalist systems. Thus, it cannot be overthrown without putting an … [read more]
Proposals for a new Anti-imperialism
From the Social Forum to an Anti-imperialist Forum
There is no doubt that the movement against globalisation has constituted for the last decade an opposition force to the mono-polar capitalist world which developed out of the bi-polar set-up of the Cold War period. However, faced with its incapacity to point out strategic parameters in order to turn into a force of resistance to concrete imperialism of Yankee domination, we find ourselves in front of two challenges.
Firstly we have to explain both the factors which allowed the temporary success of the anti-globalisation movement in unifying very diverse forces and its political failure to develop into an anti-imperialist resistance force. Secondly we have to outline the possibilities of going beyond the anti-globalisation movement towards a movement prepared to resist the central pillar of world capitalism in the … [read more]
