— An International Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Publication

      Vanguard was a relatively short-lived MLM publication from London starting in 1999, which promoted Maoist People’s War. It was established as a follow-up to the 1998 International Seminar on Mao and People’s War. The magazine was well produced on A4-sized paper (21cm x 29.7cm; 8.25" x 11.63"). Because of the size of the magazine and its many photos and graphic images, the digital files are very large. A broadband Internet connection is necessary in order to view or download copies in a reasonably short time.

      We do not know how many issues of Vanguard were published, but we only have the first two. If you have access to other issues of Vanguard or have other information about it please contact us at:

      Due to the repressive legislation and judicial decisions in the United States, we at BANNEDTHOUGHT.NET want to make it completely clear that we do not have any connection whatsoever with the journal “Vanguard” nor with any of the parties or organizations whose members may have been associated with that journal. We do not aid, promote, assist, support, coordinate with, or provide any sort of services or advice to any of these parties or organizations. However, we do support the right of free speech, and the right of the people in both the United States and internationally to read the views in this and all other publications. And for this reason alone we are making copies of the issues of this journal available on this site.
