A wide-ranging book, A Separate Star: Politics and Strategy for Anti-Capitalist, Anti-Colonial, and Anti-Imperialist Struggle records the thinking behind the Red Braid Alliance for Decolonial Socialism’s ambitious five-year experiment in community organizing with the singular goal of building the revolutionary power of subaltern people. Theorizing Red Braid’s experiences of struggle against eviction and homelessness, A Separate Star draws lessons and critiques from these specific experiences and broader historical revolutionary context, presenting challenging forms of revolutionary socialist politics and organization against the hegemony of settler colonial capitalism.

A Separate Star explores the class composition of Canada in the twenty-first century; subalternity and class struggle in an imperialist and settler colonial society; decolonization and anti-colonial struggle; gender power and revolution; the limits of “white abolition” for ending white supremacy; and imperialism and the strategy of revolutionary defeatism. The result is a unique document that offers crucial political context and strategic lessons and proposals to confront the challenges that face anti-capitalist, anti-colonial, and anti-imperialist movements today. Red Braid’s record of their collective experiences and critiques casts a light that illuminates obstacles and potential pathways for newcomers to radical organizing as well as for fighters long engaged in struggle.
