“Imperialism, the Eve of the Socialist Revolution of the Proletariat” is Chapter 9 of Political Economy: A Beginner’s Course, a classic Marxist-Leninist textbook by Soviet economist A. Leontiev from the late 1930s. This textbook provides one of the best introductions to Marxist political economy, and this chapter in particular provides an outstanding introduction to the Leninist theory of imperialism.

The following analysis by Kosta Harlan is from Fight Back! News:
Parliamentary elections took place in occupied Iraq on March 8 as rockets and mortars slammed into the Green Zone and U.S. military bases across the country. The U.S. government and its allies in occupied Iraq have hailed the election as a victory for democracy (Newsweek went so far as to write “Victory at last” across the cover of their latest issue), but the reality is anything but. The elections are nothing but a continuation of the same illegal, unjust occupation political process that began when the U.S. invaded and overthrew the anti-imperialist Iraqi government in 2003. The latest election only serves to consolidate the existence of a puppet regime loyal to the U.S. occupation.

The following is from the website of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine:
The resistance and steadfastness of the people of Gaza remains powerful and strong one year after the criminal war and aggression on Gaza, said the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine on December 26, 2009 in a statement marking the first anniversary of the assault. The occupation massacres claimed the lives of nearly 1500 Palestinians and wounded and displaced tens of thousands, demolishing tens of thousands of homes which still await reconstruction today.
The Front’s statement said that “it is clear to all, month after month, and year after year, that the words of the United States about ‘peace’ and ‘negotiations’ are nothing more than meaningless sweet talk, false promises, and cheap attempts at bribery of our people while the occupation steals our land, violates our rights, slaughters our people.” At the same time, the noise of the so-called ‘peace process’ only hides the crimes of the occupier and serves as a mechanism of the Zionist occupation and its strategic ally in Washington to block our Palestinian internal efforts to end the division, restore national unity, and uphold our national rights, said the Front.

The following is a rough English translation, done by Google Translate, of the original Spanish, “Movimiento Continental Bolivariano: una necesidad política de alcances estratégicos“, a letter sent by Alfonso Cano, Commander of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia – People’s Army (FARC-EP), the largest Marxist-Leninist organization in Colombia, to the Constituent Congress of the Continental Bolivarian Movement. The Congress took place on December 8th in Caracas, Venezuela. Around 950 people from 26 nations formed the Continental Bolivarian Movement, a regional association to advance the interests of working people and to defend the continent against imperialist aggression.
