Anticolonialism in the global sixties

This book excavates forgotten histories of solidarity which were vital to radical political imaginaries during the ‘long sixties’. It decentres the conventional Western focus of this critical historical moment by foregrounding transnational solidarity with, and across, anticolonial and anti-imperialist liberation struggles. It traces the ways in which solidarity was conceived, imagined and enacted in the border-crossings – of nation, race and class identifications – of grassroots activists.

Exiled revolutionaries in Uruguay, postcolonial migrants in Britain, and Greek communist refugees in East Germany campaigned for their respective causes from afar while identifying and linking up with liberation struggles in Vietnam and the Gulf and with civil rights movements elsewhere. Meanwhile, Arab migrants in France, Pakistani volunteers and Iraqi artists found a myriad of ways to express solidarity with the Palestinian cause. Neglected archives also reveal Tricontinental Cuban-based genealogies of artistic militancy, as well as stories of anticolonial activist networks and meetings in North America, Italy, the Netherlands and Sudan, forging connections with those freedom fighters attempting to overthrow Portuguese colonial rule in Africa. These entwined routes of the 1960s chart a complex map of transnational political recognition and radical interconnections.

Bringing together original research with contributions from veteran activists and artists, this interdisciplinary volume explores how transnational solidarity was expressed in and carried through the itineraries of migrants and revolutionaries, film and print cultures, art and sport, political campaigns and armed struggle. It presents a novel perspective on radical politics of the global sixties which remains crucial to understanding anti-racist solidarity today.

Lai (1968); and the fall of Saigon (1975). Our volume builds on recent efforts to expand and complicate the spatiality and temporality of the global sixties and offers new analyses of this critical historical conjuncture through the lens of solidarity, with and across anticolonial liberation struggles. It is primarily concerned with the emergence of transnational solidarity

language. 3 This study thus contributes to undoing the silence on the topic in English-language historiography of the long ’68 in France in particular and in the literature on the global sixties more broadly. The aim here is not to present an exhaustive history of the movements in solidarity with the Palestinian cause, 4 but rather to shed light on the involvement of Arab immigrants in France

the Latin American Cold War. Here, the origin of the Uruguayan armed left is studied within the framework of the global sixties, focusing on the encounters between revolutionary militants and ideas about transnational activism that converged in the city of Montevideo in 1964. These encounters, as the chapter will go on to demonstrate, nurtured political praxis and influenced the formation of new

1960s’.9 The phrase ‘global Maoism’ has been adopted by several scholars to describe the impact of Maoist movements on the ‘global sixties’.10 In this anthology the concept of ‘global Maoism’ is used in an attempt to capture the eminently protean quality of this political phenomenon, especially when it crossed paths with, and was expressed through, the visual arts. Here the phrase ‘global Maoism’ helps to define and delineate the manifold reception and visualisation of Mao Zedong Thought. The word ‘Maoism’ has never had any traction in China, and Mao himself
