The statement says imperialism is an international system though which the capitalist ruling classes seek to maximize profits through economic, political and military control of the world's territory and peoples. The statement says the rise of socialism and the acceleration of national liberation struggles abroad contribute to the shrinking of the imperialist system, which forces the ruling classes to tighten the squeeze upon the working class at home. The statement says as anti-imperialists the New World Resource Center's task is exposing the imperialist system and working toward unifying people in the fight against it at home and abroad.
