Венесуэла сталкивается с попыткой путча, провоцируемого империализмом. Заговорщики уделяют мало внимания тому, чтобы скрывать его под демократической маской, конституционным требованием своей марионетки Гуайдо и «всеобщим избирательным правом». Этот путч поддерживается реакционными правительствами, в том числе и в Латинской Америке, в особенности фашистским знаменосцем Трампа на Юге: Болсонару. Мы, партии и организации, подписывающие эту декларацию, заявляем, что мы категорически против этой попытки путча, чтобы свергнуть Мадуро и правительство Венесуэлы!

We call all the working-class parties and movements, socialists and anti-imperialists around the world to unite against the imperialist coup attempt in Venezuela, organize solidarity with the Venezuelan people and give an international fight to help Venezuelan workers in reaching a class-based solution to the crisis. Defeating imperialism passes from mobilization of masses against the imperialist plot, from dealing as many blows as possible to the imperialists and their collaborators in our countries as well as from the socialist unity of Latin America.

La seguente è una dichiarazione politica proveniente dal Venezuela sul tentativo di colpo di Stato istigato dall'imperialismo e sulla minaccia di una guerra civile nel paese. La dichiarazione è stata scritta e ci è stata inviata da Opción Obrera (Opzione operaia, n.d.r.), gruppo marxista rivoluzionario, sezione venezuelana del CRQI. La Plataforma Revolucionaria de Lucha - Aragua (Piattaforma rivoluzionaria di lotta - Aragua), gruppo locale di militanti rivoluzionari in lotta nello Stato di Aragua nel Venezuela, ha condiviso la dichiarazione e aderito alle rivendicazioni contenute in essa.

When the First World War broke out in 1914, the parties of the Second International adopted a reactionary attitude, each supporting their country’s bourgeoisie. This annihilated the founding purpose of the International, which was built on the basis of common interests of international working class. Only five years later, in 1919, the Third International, the Communist International (in abbreviated form the Comintern), was established in Moscow between the 2nd and 6th of March. It was established with the enthusiasm the October Revolution stirred, the first victorious revolution in history to establish a lasting proletarian power, as a beacon of hope for the whole working class of the world.

This is a political statement coming from inside Venezuela on the coup attempt instigated by imperialism and the threat of a civil war in the country. The statement has been sent to us by Opción Obrera, a revolutionary Marrxist grouping that is a sister organisation to the DIP and EEK, the parties behind RedMed. The Plataforma Revolucionaria de Lucha – Aragua (Revolutionary Platform of Struggle – Aragua) is a local group of revolutionary militants struggling in the State of Aragua in federal Venezuela. Opción Obrera is affiliated with this group and is in political agreement with the statement itself. This statement was earlier published on our web site in Spanish.

En Venezuela, el imperialismo estadounidense está tratando de derrocar a Maduro con un golpe de estado. Estados Unidos no solo dirige a su marioneta Guaidó detrás de la escena, sino que amenaza abiertamente a Venezuela con una agresión militar. El objetivo no es solo sobre Venezuela, sino doblegar en  América Latina, toda resistencia al imperialismo. La amenaza americana previene a Cuba y a algunos otros países. La característica común de estos países es que son una espina para el imperialismo en América Latina, que los considera su patio trasero. Las flores artificiales del patio trasero de los Estados Unidos son los líderes reaccionarios y colaboracionistas de Colombia, Argentina, Perú y Paraguay y sobre todo Bolsonaro en Brasil que representa una tendencia fascista.

This article is the Editorial of issue No. 113, dated February 2019, of the newspaper Gerçek -the central organ of DIP (Revolutionary Workers’ Party, Turkey).

In Venezuela, US imperialism is trying to overthrow Maduro by a coup. The USA has not only played the puppet Guaidó, who declared himself president, behind the scenes, but also threatened Venezuela with a military attack. The aim is to force anyone who resists imperialism to capitulate not only in Venezuela, but in all of Latin America. A few countries, Cuba in the first place, have their share of the American threat. The common characteristic of these countries is that they are thorns for imperialism in Latin America, which the USA considers as a backyard. The artificial flowers of the USA's backyard are the reactionary and imperialist collaborator leaders of Colombia, Argentina, Peru, Paraguay and especially the fascist-leaning Bolsonaro of Brazil.

Venezuela’da ABD emperyalizmi bir darbe ile Maduro’yu devirmeye çalışıyor. ABD, kendini başkan ilan eden Guaidóisimli kuklayı sahne arkasından oynatmakla kalmıyor, Venezuela’yı açıkça askeri saldırıyla tehdit ediyor. Amaç sadece Venezuela’da değil tüm Latin Amerika’da emperyalizme karşı direnç gösteren herkesi teslim almak. Amerikan tehdidinden öncelikle Küba ve ardından bazı başka ülkeler de nasibini almakta. Bu ülkelerin ortak özelliği ABD’nin, arka bahçesi olarak gördüğü Latin Amerika’da emperyalizm için birer diken olmaları. ABD’nin arka bahçesinin yapma çiçekleri ise başta Brezilya’nın faşist eğilimli Bolsonaro olmak üzere Kolombiya’nın, Arjantin’in, Peru’nun, Paraguay’ın gerici ve emperyalist işbirlikçisi liderleri.

Apart from reserving all our criticism towards Maduro and his party, we support Maduro’s decision to cut all ties with the USA calling US diplomats to leave the country. Turkey’s government seems to support Maduro by word, because Venezuela processes close to one billion dollars’ worth of its gold in Turkey, so because of economic interests. We are at a point where words fail and actions gain value. The only meaningful support to Latin America from our region will be Turkey leaving NATO and closing all the US military bases starting with Incirlik.

This is the second of two articles on the “yellow vests” movement and the world situation. The first article (“The ‘Yellow Vests’: La République en marche arrière”) was published yesterday.

 

 

2018 was a year of inflection.

A bolt out of the blue?

It is interesting that the uprising of the gilets jaunes is almost exclusively discussed within the French context. Of course, the fallout in other countries is mentioned from time to time, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Lebanon, most importantly Tunisia, where the vests have changed their colour into red. In Turkey the “yellow vests” are very popular within the working class and a true source of fear in government circles.

For the refoundation of the Fourth International / Por la refundación de la Cuarta Internacional

Born of the decision at the International Conference called by the Partido Obrero of Argentina, the Partido de los Trabajadores of Uruguay, the EEK of Greece, and the DIP of Turkey in Buenos Aires in April 2018, the ambition and aim of our international theoretical-political organ World Revolution is to become an international reference point of militant Marxism for principled debate, political clarification, programmatic demarcation, theoretical re-arming with revolutionary materialist-historical dialectics as a guide of action, regrouping and unification of the revolutionary vanguard fighters now dispersed internationally in fragmentary struggles.

Our battle cry is: for the Permanent Revolution and communism, build the International of world socialist revolution!

Il brutale omicidio di Jamal Khashoggi nel Consolato dell’Arabia Saudita ad Istanbul, avvenuto con modalità che susciterebbero l’invidia di un regista di film horror, rappresenta un di per sé un campanello d’allarme. Questo omicidio mostra la natura reazionaria del sistema statale saudita, insieme ai suoi stretti alleati nel Golfo come il Kuwait, gli Emirati Arabi Uniti, il Bahrein, l’Oman e, nonostante le sue ovvie contraddizioni attuali con l’Arabia Saudita, il Qatar.

The brutal murder of Jamal Khashoggi in the Istanbul Consulate of Saudi Arabia in a way that would arouse the envy of the most professional horror movie director is, on its own, nothing but a wake-up call.  This murder shows the reactionary nature of the state system constituted by the Saudi state, along with its close allies in the Gulf such as Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Oman, and, despite its obvious current contradictions with Saudi Arabia, Qatar.

From the Great French Revolution to the 1880s, that is for a full century, until the Russian revolutionary movement began to stand on its feet, Marx and Engels continuously emphasized that Russia was the was the  primary source of reaction in Europe. What Russia was to 19th century Europe, Saudi Arabia is to the Arab world in the 21st century.

Finalmente è stato ammesso che il giornalista saudita Jamal Khashoggi è stato ucciso nel consolato dell’Arabia Saudita a Istanbul, dove era stato visto per l’ultima volta. L’annuncio è stato fatto dall’agenzia di stampa Saudi Press Agency su quanto dichiarato da funzionari sauditi. Con questa confessione l’Arabia Saudita cerca di addossare la colpa di questo omicidio ad alcuni agenti dell’intelligence. Sono stati fatti i nomi di 18 sospettati. Non c’è dubbio che il principe ereditario Mohammad bin Salman, che controlla l’intero apparato militare e di intelligence e che elimina i suoi avversari utilizzando ogni mezzo possibile, sia il mandante di questo crimine. E ora hanno trovato il modo di coprirlo: “King Salman ha ordinato la ristrutturazione dell’agenzia di intelligence”. E chi sarà a capo del comitato responsabile di questa ristrutturazione? Il principe ereditario Mohammad bin Salman in persona!

The announcement was made by the Saudi Press Agency, based on the declaration of Saudi officials. This confession of Saudi Arabia seeks to put the blame of this murder on some intelligence agents. 18 Saudi suspects are mentioned. There is no doubt that Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who controls the whole military and intelligence apparatus and who eliminates his opponents by any means possible, is the instigator of this crime. And now they have found the way to cover up for him: “King Salman has ordered the restructuring of the intelligence agency.” And who will lead the committee in charge of this restructuring?

Il 30 settembre, il popolo di un piccolo pacifico paese dei Balcani ha mostrato la sua resistenza contro la politica ricattatrice delle più grandi potenze imperialiste e il loro intervento per piegarlo ai propri interessi: l'ingresso della Repubblica di Macedonia nella alleanza NATO. In questo giorno, macedoni, albanesi, turchi, valacchi, serbi, Rom, bosniaci e membri di tutte le altre etnie della repubblica - in solidarietà attraverso un massiccio e organizzato boicottaggio del referendum illegale - hanno dimostrato unità nella resistenza all'imperialismo e alle élite corrotte che conducevano queste politiche.

Nonostante i forti sforzi di politici di tutto il mondo, come il cancelliere tedesco Angela Merkel, il segretario alla Difesa degli Stati Uniti James Mattis, e il primo ministro austriaco Sebastian Kurz, che ha visitato il nostro paese il mese scorso, e la costosa e manipolativa campagna governativa per la presunta prosperità che il nostro paese avrebbe avuto nella alleanza NATO, non è stata spezzata la resistenza del popolo contro i politici corrotti del paese e di tutto il mondo.

La 56a Assemblea internazionale contro la guerra, organizzata dalla Federazione giapponese delle associazioni studentesche autonome (Zengakuren) e dalla Lega comunista rivoluzionaria giapponese (JRCL), si è tenuta a Tokyo e in altre sei città giapponesi il 5 agosto 2018, appena un giorno prima dell'anniversario del brutale attacco nucleare dell'imperialismo americano a Hiroshima. Anche se i messaggi di solidarietà delle organizzazioni riflettono approcci diversi alla questione della guerra e dell'imperialismo, l'evento stesso è stato un incontro importante per la discussione sulla possibilità di una nuova guerra mondiale e sulle sue conseguenze. Due membri del Christian Rakovsky Center, DİP (Turchia) e EEK (Grecia) hanno inviato messaggi di solidarietà all'evento. Entrambi possono essere letti qui sotto.

Αναπόφευκτα ο πρώτος στόχος και θύμα μιας τέτοιας ανίερης συμμαχίας είναι ο Παλαιστινιακός λαός, τα δικαιώματά του στον εθνικό αυτοπροσδιορισμό, περιλαμβανομένου του δικαιώματος στην Επιστροφή όλων των Παλαιστίνιων προσφύγων.

The 4th Euro-Mediterranean Conference in May 2017 had emphasized the implications of the first trip of Trump outside the US in Saudi Arabia and Israel: the formation of a pro-imperialist war axis of Israel, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Sudan aimed against Iran and its allies in the region, first of all Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Syrian regime of Bashar al Assad.

Inescapably the first target and victim of such unholy alliance is the Palestinian people, their rights of national self-determination, including the right to Return of all Palestinian refugees. 

On May 14, the United States opened its new embassy in Al Quds/Jerusalem. Thereby the US imperialism made definitive its recognition of Al Quds/Jerusalem as the capital city of the occupier state. The Palestinian people’s unarmed Great March of Return in Gaza was attacked by the Zionist forces, who killed dozens of civilians, injuring and arresting thousands, thus leading one of the most violent attacks against the Palestinians since the 2014 Gaza War. At the same time thousands of Palestinian political prisoners are in the Zionists’ prisons, without trial, for years.

Yesterday, in Northern Yemen, which is entirely under Houthi control, the Saudi-led coalition bombed a bus near or inside a market place, killing dozens or even scores of civilians. Among those killed were at least 29 children on their way to a summer camp. The Saudis were adamant in the legitimacy of this “operation”, claiming that it was in retaliation to a Houthi missile sent to southern Saudi Arabia, killing one person. These allies of the “international community”, i.e. of imperialism are brazenly defending a massacre by recourse to the concept of retaliation! What on earth does the killing of children eight or nine years old have to do with military retaliation? These people do not even have the minimal decency to admit to wrongdoing of the most obvious kind. Normal when one remembers that it the past they have systematically bombed schools, hospitals, weddings and even the dead, during funerals.

Struggles on the right to abortion on demand are being waged around the world, from Poland to Ireland, from Argentina to in all probability very soon the United States. The draft law being debated in the Congress in Argentina is, at this point, the greatest test for the women’s movement and others fighting for women’s emancipation. The draft law passed its first reading in the lower chamber of Congress earlier. It will now be voted in the Senate tomorrow, the 8th August 2018.

The Emergency Euro-Mediterranean Encounter that convened in Erethria, Greece on 23-25 July 2018 passed, unanimously, a resolution that defends abortion as a right for the women of the entire world. In support of our Argentine sisters, we publish this Declaration on the eve of the voting in the Senate, in Spanish and in English.

The United States began its sanctions on Turkey referring to the situation of Pastor Brunson, who was decided by court to be removed from jail but kept under house arrest as the case proceeds. The US Department of Treasury has announced that sanctions will be imposed on the Turkish Minister of the Interior, Süleyman Soylu, and the Turkish Minister of Justice, Abdulhamit Gül, in direct relation to Brunson's case. The two ministers’ assets in the United States were frozen and American citizens were banned from doing business with them.
