ML> I assume this refers to the German word "Bund," meaning a league or

ML> You mean the early German socialist Bunds in the US.

  I'm quite sure, although I did not really follow the life and  
thoughts of Bob Avakian very closely, that this refers to the Jewish  
"Bund" in Tsarist Russia. "Bund" being the German (and probably  
Yiddish, too) word for league.

  I do further guess that this talk about "bundism" in the USA refers  
to the independent organization of oppressed nationalities, like the  
Blacks, Chicanos, what have you.

  Hope that helps ...
