"Proletarian revolutioniaries are not anathema to telling the narrative of a people’s common history of oppression and striving forge national unity. This is true especially in the context of rousing a nation and uniting a broad range of classes to unite and rise against colonial or semicolonial subjugation or imperialist oppression.
In doing so, communists must always link and raise the question of national oppression to the question of social oppression, i.e. to the question of classes, and the need to unite primarily the oppressed and exploited classes to fight the classes that perpetuate national oppression, i.e. the imperialists and their local cohorts. Otherwise, raising the slogan of a people’s national unity will only redound to bourgeois national chauvinism, which is where Xi Jinping’s “national rejuvenation” is ultimately leading to."
Some good notes from the Phillipines.
