In the era of Occupy Wall Street, continuing US war and militarization overseas, and the worst global economic crisis in history, the work and writings of Dr. Jose Maria Sison on socialism, imperialist globalization, and peoples movements for national and social liberation prove to stand the test of time in their relevancy, including the 40+ year demonization campaign of US imperialism against him. Despite his listing as a so-called foreign terrorist by the US State Department, Dr. Sison is a well-respected poet, author, lecturer, former political prisoner, anti-imperialist activist, revolutionary and remains actively involved in peoples struggles against US foreign policy and for democracy. He is currently the international chairperson of the International League of Peoples Struggles (ILPS), a global formation of more than 350 organizations from 40 countries promoting, supporting and developing the anti-imperialist struggles of the peoples of the world. Dr. Sison has been living in political exile in the Netherlands for more than 25 years.Read more
