The University of the Poor is now publishing an online journal.
The mission of the University of the Poor is to unite and develop leaders committed to the unity of the poor and dispossessed across all lines of division so as to build a broad-based and powerful movement to end poverty. The role the University of the Poor Journal is to develop collaborative research, robust debate, and resources to advance that mission.
The Journal will include articles on theoretical and political questions presenting themselves as the revolutionary movement develops under new conditions. It will consider the strategic questions facing our class and carry articles analyzing current political developments in the U.S. and internationally. The Journal hopes to become a center for discussion of various strategic projections in the revolutionary movement.
We invite all who agree with the general principles in the University of the Poor concept paper to contact us and consider contributing to the Journal.
October 1, 2019 is the 70th anniversary of the 1949 Chinese revolution. Since then China has been lifting hundreds of millions of people out of poverty. As an organization dedicated to ending poverty through a movement led by the poor and dispossessed, we believe it is imperative in this moment to study the Chinese revolutionary process and apply the lessons of those struggles to the fight to transform our own country. Despite (often sinophobic) attacks by global capital, the Western media and the U.S. state, the University of the Poor has confidence in the Chinese people and their revolutionary process. We propose revolutionaries take up the study of books such as Xi Jinping’s The Governance of China and the Council on Foreign Relations book, Elizabeth Economy’s The Third Revolution: Xi Jinping and the New Chinese State to further our understanding of the current situation in China.
2019年10月1日是中华人民共和国建立70周年。 从1949起，中国一直在使数亿人摆脱贫困。 作为革命者，我们有义务研究世界各地革命的经验，并将这些斗争的教训应用于改造我们自己的国家。 穷人大学对中国人民以及中国人民的革命进程充满信心。
