ITT: brainstorm how to bring more comrades from nationalities that do not commonly post here!
Some Russian users came to /leftypol/ from /ussr/. That was a somewhat successful attempt at internationalization of /leftypol/, and served as a proof of concept.
If you're reading this and outside of the parts of the traditional Anglosphere (US, UK, Canada, NZ, Aus) then consider letting us know where leftists in your country or language congregate online, how likely it would be for us to be able to bring any aboard, and how that may be done.
Consider even taking such an initiative yourself independently.
My personal countries of interest for this purpose:>China>Iran>Japan>Latin America in general, but particularly those with a budding left-wing movement such as Mexico, Bolivia, Venezuela, etc.>Egypt>Turkey>Russia
A note about connecting with users from countries with state censors:
Keep in mind that we do have a Tor website ( 76i2c3hn55fcj5nut3tqlboqqbbh23zvphv7lefk3vftpx6wketlanyd.onion ). This should assist in evading state censors (which may not currently be necessary for accessing /leftypol/ but you can predict that anticommunist states would be interested the moment they notice it exists), but be wary of course, especially of instructing someone how to access Tor on a potentially insecure platform.
In the case of Iran, I'm aware that an estimated 50 million people there use Telegram, which can be encrypted, albeit not by default ( see https://privacyinternational.org/telegram-guides
for some best practices ). It is also reportedly a popular program in Russia.
