ABD başkanı Donald Trump 6 Aralık 2017’de “Kudüs’ü İsrail’in başkenti” ilan ederek Ortadoğu’da olan savaşları, halk isyanlarını ve siyasi krizi tırmandırmış oldu. Filistin halkının bütün haklarını acımasızca yok sayan bu açıklama bütün Arap ve Müslüman halklara yapılan yeni bir saldırı ve emperyalist savaşı genişletme vasıtasıyla tüm insanlığa karşı bir tehdittir.

Uluslararası işçi hareketini, dünyanın bütün özgürlük savaşçılarını ve ezilenlerini seferber olmaya, toprakları Siyonist İsrail, onun askeri birlikleri ve yerleşimcileri tarafından işgal edilmiş olan Filistin halkının kahramanca mücadelesine destek olup katılmaya çağırıyoruz!

Con su provocación del 6 de diciembre de 2017, cuando declaró a "Jerusalén como la capital de Israel", el presidente estadounidense, Donald Trump, intensificó las guerras crecientes, las crisis políticas y rebeliones populares en el Medio Oriente. Este repudio brutal de todos los derechos del pueblo palestino es una nueva agresión a los pueblos árabes y musulmanes y una amenaza contra toda la humanidad a través de la expansión de la guerra imperialista.

Llamamos al movimiento obrero internacional, a todos los luchadores por la libertad y a los oprimidos del mundo a movilizarse inmediatamente en solidaridad con el pueblo palestino, unirnos en apoyo a su heroica lucha en su territorio usurpado, ocupado por el régimen sionista israelí, sus tropas militares y colonos.

By his provocation to declare on December 6, 2017 “Jerusalem as the capital of Israel” US President Donald Trump, escalated the already spreading wars, political crisis and popular revolts in the Middle East. This brutal repudiation of all the rights of the Palestinian people, is a new aggression to the entire Arab and Muslim peoples and a threat against all humanity through the expansion of imperialist war.

We call the international workers movement, all the freedom fighters and oppressed of the world to mobilize immediately in solidarity with the Palestinian people joining and supporting its heroic struggle in its usurped land occupied by the Israeli Zionist regime, its military troops and settlers.

The Zionist occupier state of Israel has for years been endeavouring to de-Arabize Al Quds (Jerusalem), the historic capital of Palestine and to declare it as the eternal capital of the occupier state. In order to fulfil this objective, Zionist Israel represses Palestinian people, slaughters Palestinians young and old alike, takes Palestinian politicians, students, and leaders captive. On the 6th of December, Donald Trump, the president of the US, declared that his administration will move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Al Quds. Thus, the US imperialism made definitive its recognition of Al Quds as the capital city of the occupier state.

В момента, работниците от голямата соларна фабрика HT в Истанбул водят тежка борба. Те се борят от години за правото да се обединят в синдикат и в момента са много близо до това, синдикатът им да бъде официално признат във фабриката. Приближавайки се до тази цел, работниците се сблъскаха с тежки репресии от управата, от където започнаха да уволняват хора за да уплашат работниците и да разбият синдиката. Вчера, 6 работници са били уволнени. Днес, техните колеги обявиха стачка в знак на солидарност с уволнените към която се присъединиха работниците от всички смени и блокираха работата на фабриката. Стачката вече се разрастна и в знак на солидарност с протестиращите пред сградата на фабриката се събраха и работници от други предприятия в региона.

Workers Revolutionary Party (Greece) and Balkan Center Christian Rakovsky condemn the entry ban and expulsion from Italy of the historic leader of the Palestinian people, comrade Leila Khaled, on Tuesday 28th of November. It is a reactionary action of co-operation of the Italian imperialism with the far-right Zionist government of Israel, for the oppression of the Palestinian people and for the occupation of Palestine. We demand that the representatives of the Palestinian resistance should have the right to move freely throughout Europe and the world, in order to defend the right of the Palestinian people for self-determination, for the return of all displaced Palestinians to their homes and for the right to overthrow the Israeli occupation.

On the exact centenary of the victory of the October revolution, in the city that was the very centre of that revolution, Petrograd, later Leningrad, and now St. Petersburg, gathered a conference commemorating this most important social revolution of the modern age. The conference had two different tracks, one international, in which, in addition to Russian communist and Marxist organizations, several foreign parties participated, including the EEK of Greece and the DIP of Turkey, along with Marxist intellectuals such as Samir Amin, and a more Russia and former Soviet Union oriented one, with communist and left-wing parties from Russia and some countries of the former Soviet Union, such as Donetsk, Belarus, Moldova, Lithuania, Latvia etc. We are publishing below a statement coming out of this second track of the conference.

It means to dare: to think and act radically towards the capitalist system. Not only to think, but also to act, not only to act but also to think. So, the daring is not at all a spirit of adventure cost what it may, but at the same time it implies the decision to not stop the radical transformation of capitalism, to go just in this direction.

The Syrian civil war is entering a new phase. DAESH (ISIS), having lost Mosul in Iraq, Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor in Syria, has reached the end of the road. We are entering a phase where DAESH, whose claim to be an “Islamic State” has now become untenable given the territory it controls, would be obliged to adopt a guerrilla tactic and maintain its existence with terrorist action on an international scale. The void left behind by DAESH has been the subject of an intense struggle for influence between the axes of the USA-Israel and Russia-Iran-Syria.

Before the military-political intervention against Catalonia

The call to exercise the national self-determination in Catalonia, by means of a referendum, next October 1st, has been responded with a repressive offensive  by the Spanish government, which includes the annulation of the political sovereignty of the Generalitat, the intervention of the Catalan Police and sending the army.

We defend the Catalan right of self-determination. We call the workers of the world and in first place from all Spanish State, for an international action against this abuse. It’s necessary to defeat the provocation of the Spanish monarchy, defend the realization of the referendum and claim for the installation of a Republic in all Spanish land.

¡Sí a la igualdad y a la libertad del pueblo kurdo! ¡No al imperialismo, al sionismo, al proteccionismo colonialista y a “Barzanistán”!

Han habido varias reacciones frente al referéndum previsto en el Kurdistán iraquí para el 25 de septiembre, por parte de actores de diverso rango: desde los Estados de la región hasta las potencias imperialistas y la entidad sionista. El Partido Revolucionario de los Trabajadores (DIP) aborda esta cuestión desde el punto de vista del pueblo kurdo oprimido y el interés de la clase obrera, y basado en el internacionalismo proletario considera el derecho a la autodeterminación de las naciones como un principio, y defiende la igualdad y la fraternidad de los pueblos.

There have been various reactions to the referendum planned in Iraqi Kurdistan on 25 September, by actors ranging from the states of the region to the imperialist powers and the Zionist entity. The Revolutionary Workers’ Party (DIP), who grounds on proletarian internationalism, considers the self-determination right of nations as a principle and defends equality and fraternity of peoples,  approaches to this question from a point of view of the oppressed Kurdish people and the interests of the working class.

Whose fate will be determined by the referendum?

From this point of view, it is clear that the Kurdish people has the equal political, cultural and economic rights as the peoples with whom it lives together, including the right to form its own state. The question of timing, evoked by the imperialist and colonialist powers in order to defend their own interests, means nothing to us. A people’s demand for equality and freedom is not a matter of timing. It is a right!

The workers of one of the largest food retailers in Bulgaria, went on wildcat strikes across the country since 20th of March that mainly took place in Sofia and Varna, after not receiving wages for over months. The company owners and high management are in hiding and refuse to make any explanation to the workers about the wage theft. In Sofia the workers alongside Autonomous Worker’s Union, protested in front of the company’s headquarters and in Varna they occupied the largest store in the chain and then marched to the bank in control of the company’s assets. During their months long struggle the workers of Picadilly joined their forces with the workers of Max Telecom, the miners of Bobov Dol, toilers from Dupnitsa and chemical factory workers from Dimitrovgrad to organize a joint campaign. The first coordinated action of this campaign happened in 5th of September, around 150 workers from different cities marched in front of the Bulgarian Parliament in Sofia and raised their voices against the wage theft of their bosses.

La crise systémique du capitalisme rend le patronat plus rapace. Macron et le Medef ne veulent plus « payer la paix sociale ». Le gouvernement Macron au service du Medef prétend imposer au monde du travail des régressions sociales qui nous renverraient à avant 1936, soit 80 ans en arrière. En effet, le patronat veut un salariat kleenex qu’on jette après usage, qu’aucun droit du travail ne protège. Car il veut toujours plus de dividendes ; même si ceux-ci explosent littéralement, il n’en a jamais assez. Nos intérêts de salariés sont directement opposés aux intérêts des capitalistes. Si nous ne voulons pas que nos salaires, nos conditions de travail, nos conditions de vie reculent indéfiniment, nous devrons nous battre avec nos armes de travailleurs, nos armes de classe que sont les grèves et les manifestations.

 Netanyahu, the prime minister of the illegitimate occupier state of Israel, began his visit to Latin America at Buenos Aires. He will be the first Israeli prime minister to visit Argentina, before proceeding to Columbia and Mexico. Netanyahu’s program in Argentina includes meetings with Argentina’s president Mauricio Macri and Paraguay’s president Horacio Cartes, who flew in to visit Netanyahu in Argentina.

 Partido Obrero (Workers’ Party - PO), the sister party of DIP in Argentina, says that the aim of Netanyahu’s visit is to develop a collaboration between illegitimate Israel and Argentina, on security and intelligence topics, as well as to buy arms and military technology from Israel. Already, the Zionist occupier plays an important role in training the local police organization and the security forces of Argentina. The Macri government wants to strengthen its pressure on Argentina’s working class, which is imposed in order to make the working class bow down to the austerity policies, with this collaboration.

The G-20 meeting in Hamburg, Germany, at the beginning of July, was the scene of powerful protests against the leaders of the capitalist world. The severe reaction of the German state to these protests caused anger all around the world. A full month after the summit, some of the protestors are still captive in the hands of the German state, awaiting in prison without even an indictment, which obviously means that preventive detention is already reaching the level of punishment without trial! Six of the prisoners are young Italians, among whom two of our comrades from the Partito comunista dei lavoratori (Pcl-Communist Party of Workers). The Pcl has started a campaign for the release of the two comrades plus the other Italian prisoners held by the German state.

Le Parti Socialiste semble moribond, une impression corroborée par les revers cinglants essuyés par Cambadélis et Hamon. Valls ne doit sa position confortable qu’à sa soumission à Macron. Bien que l’échec des Républicains soit moins grave, il est extrêmement douteux qu’ils puissent éviter une implosion, compte tenu de leurs différends internes vis-à-vis de Macron et de son gouvernement.

América Latina asiste, hasta cierto punto, a un fenómeno excepcional. De un lado, al derrumbe de los regímenes nacionalistas burgueses y frentepopulistas que fueron empujados al poder por diferentes episodios de la crisis mundial de los 90 y por el agotamiento de las tentativas ‘neo-liberales’ precedentes. Por otro, a una raṕida crisis (cuando no a un derrumbe) de los gobiernos de ‘ajuste’ que han venido a reemplazarlos por distintos medios políticos - electorales o golpistas. En resumen, asistimos a la conjunción de la crisis de dos formas de dominación política que se sucedieron y alternaron en el último cuarto de siglo.

It’s been one hundred years since the imperialists and Zionists laid their dirty hands on Palestine. The Balfour Declaration of British imperialism, giving a promise for a help to the Zionists in order for them to settle and invade Palestine, was given to Zionist banker Lionel Rotschild on the 2nd of November, 1917. It was the same British imperialism who after the war invaded Palestine and paved the way for the formation of a Zionist entity while implementing a mandate there. US, France and Italy, abetted British imperialism by supporting the declaration later on.

Dead woman walking”, was called the Tory leader Theresa May by the Tory former Chancellor George Osborne after her electoral fiasco on June 8. This vicious, vitriolic, unceremonious statement could be applied not only to the Conservative Prime Minister of post- Brexit Britain. It fits as well, but in a very different, contradictory way, to the 5th Republic established in 1958 by De Gaulle in France, after the apparently landslide electoral victory of Emmanuel Macron in the first round of the parliamentary elections on June 11. Furthermore, this statement accurately testifies about the dire situation in the European (dis)Union as a whole and beyond.

All the extraordinary measures taken by governments and central banks after the Lehman Brothers debacle, the rivers of liquidity to the imploding financial system at a gigantic social cost under a permanent regime of the most draconian “austerity” on the popular masses, has failed to bring an end to the world slump, a Third Great Depression in the history of world capitalism. On the contrary, they have produced the social, economic and political conditions for new explosions.
