A Magazine of Proletarian
A quarterly magazine devoted to progressive and revolutionary literature and art expressing the the anti-establishment struggles of the working class and oppressed people in the U.S. and worldwide. Poems, songs, stories, short plays, drawings, cartoons, occasional photos plus editorials by Tim Hall, an anti-revisionist Marxist-Leninist since the 1960's. Featuring African American, Latino and other writers of color, prisoners, disgruntled workers, activists in the anti-war, anti-racist and other mass movements and many writers discontented with the Bush imperialist juggernaut and the Democratic and labor-leader capitulation to it. While we urge literature in the direction of revolutionary working-class politics and a vision of socialism as embodying a genuine workers' power, in distinction to the state-capitalist regimes of the former Soviet Union, present-day China, North Korea, Cuba, etc., we accept a broader range of rebellious viewpoints in order to encourage creativity and dialogue.
