On the 25th and 26th of September, 2014, representatives of the Kurdish population living in Istanbul on the West of Turkey visited the south-eastern border region with Rojava, i.e. Syrian or South-western Kurdistan, in order to express their solidarity with the Kurdish population of Kobani, one of the three cantons of Rojava which is currently under attack from the ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant). Among them was a delegation of the DIP, the Revolutionary Workers’ Party of Turkey, which joined the mission as a manifestation of proletarian internationalism in solidarity with the oppressed Kurdish people. On Friday, a section of the mission crossed the border into Rojava to visit the people of the villages around the city of Kobani. There, the DIP delegation together with the Kurds and some other Turkish socialists, greeted and embraced the Forces of Protection (YPG), the force set up to defend the newly autonomous Rojava.

31 May was the anniversary of the eruption of the popular rebellion in Turkey that has gone under the name of Gezi Park around the world. On that anniversary, a virtual state of emergency was established in Istanbul, with 25 thousand police officers deployed around Taksim Square, the political, cultural and tourism centre of Istanbul, where the AKP government’s plan to build a shopping mall in the place of the park siding the square was frustrated by the revolt in 2013. Tear gas poisoning the atmosphere, people fainting, gas canisters targeted at demonstrators’ heads, one Italian journalist injured by a hit on his chest, a CNN International correspondent taken under custody while on air, an opposition MP almost being strangled by the police—all that Turkey has become accustomed to in recent years in terms of state repression and police brutality.

Following the 2nd Workers Euro-Mediterranean Conference, held in Athens on March 29-30, 2014, and on the basis of its conclusions, results, and prospects , the Balkan Socialist Center “Christian Rakovsky” waged an intensive political activity in the Balkans, connecting with activists involved in various struggles that erupted in the Peninsula in 2013 and 2014, from Bulgaria and Bosnia to Greece and Turkey, and intervening in on-going political-ideological debates within the social movements and the Left. Inescapably, the explosion in Ukraine and the rebellion in Donbass came into the center of our discussions in different meetings as well as the fight against the EU draconian measures imposed in the region and the fight against the rising fascism all over Europe, from Ukraine and Hungary to Greece and France.

The war launched against the people of Eastern and Southern Ukraine has already caused enormous sufferings for its population, an ever growing number of dead and wounded among the local civil population, massive destruction of homes, public utilities, infrastructure and workplaces. At the same time, mothers and fathers in Western and Central Ukraine see their children being mobilized against their will to be sent to possible death in Donbass, only to serve the interests of the ruling oligarchs and their Western imperialist patrons in the EU and the USA.

The recent conquest by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) of large chunks of Iraq, starting with the city of Falluja and parts of Ramadi some six months ago, and then since 10 June, the successive taking of Mosul, the second city of Iraq, Tikrit, Saddam’s hometown, Tel Afar, where a large Turkmen population lives, and of the whole area stretching west of Baghdad towards the frontier with Jordan and Saudi Arabia is the result of a series of crimes committed by US and EU imperialisms, the reactionary Gulf states and the Tayyip Erdogan government in Turkey in their quest to consolidate their domination over the Middle East. It is thanks to the environment created by the misdeeds of these governments and the reactionary regime of the mullahs in Iran that the ISIL now controls, albeit tenuously, a population (6 million) and an area the full size of Jordan that stretches from Raqqa in Northeast Syria to the governerate of Diyala northeast of Baghdad near the Iranian border. It also has the potential of entering Jordan any moment and makes its threat felt in Lebanon, where it has been exploding highly destructive bombs in Hezbollah territory.

We, the participants of the organizational meeting of left and Marxist groups and organizations from Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine, believe that ceasing the civil war in Ukraine is necessary. The military conflict that followed the victory of the neo-liberals and nationalists at Kiev "euromaidan" claimed hundreds of lives and contributed to an unprecedented growth of chauvinism and xenophobia in Ukrainian and Russian society. This war allows the ruling class to consolidate Ukrainian society around their political regime, distracting workers of the Western and Eastern parts of the country from struggle for their social and political rights, and pushing them together to serve the interests of the bourgeoisie. Russian government, the European Union and the United States use the civil war in Ukraine for the same purpose: dying Donbass people are just pawns in their competition.

Sinister ghosts of its fascist past are hovering over the political ruins of most of bourgeois center right and center left parties ruling in the European Union, and a persistent threat from the left still is emerging in its Southern periphery, in rebellious Greece and in the Spain of the Indignados.

That the political parties have used the 25th May elections as a poll of people’s preferences for the November presidential elections – is not an interesting aspect. Nor the circus these parties made already long before the elections, by always new scandals related to words, false political attacks on each other, and the reciprocal disclosure of real robberies made by ‘very important persons’ from each of these parties: but never concluded with drastic punishment. (Some very few important members of these parties came to prison in the last 2-3 years, but this does not ‘compensate’ the deep social injustice and the infringement of the law and democracy by those who voted for the ‘rule of law’). Nor the fact that just this monkey business and the frequent information concerning the European unemployment and the absurd mismanagement of the common problems by the Bruxelles bureaucrats – have contributed to the dislike of the majority of population absent from the ballot.

El domingo 25 de mayo tuvo lugar un nuevo episodio de la crisis política española. Pocas horas después de haberse conocido los resultados de las elecciones al Parlamento Europeo, se producían las primeras consecuencias. El derechista Partido Popular (PP) -que gobierna con mayoría absoluta desde el otoño de 2011- decidía estudiar medidas para recuperar la confianza perdida entre los votantes y calmar la contestación interna; por su parte, el secretario general del Partido Socialista Obrero Español (PSOE) –socialdemócrata- anunciaba la convocatoria de un congreso extraordinario que intentará resolver las diversas crisis que debe afrontar. Ninguno de los dos partidos tenía motivos para celebrar el resultado electoral: en 2009 la suma de ambos alcanzó el 80%, ahora no llega al 50%; el PP ha perdido un tercio de su representación; para el PSOE la disminución es todavía mayor, y más grave, ya que ha sido incapaz de aprovechar el desgaste del partido del gobierno y además se trata de sus peores resultados en casi cuarenta años de democracia burguesa. Las elecciones del pasado domingo suponen una auténtica sacudida para el sistema político español, fuertemente bipartidista.

The winner of the EU election in DK is the rightwing, nationalist, racist, populist Danish Peoples Party (DPP). Out of a population of 5.6 million, they got 605.889 votes, i.e. 26.6% -out of the total seats of 13 they got 4 seats - only similar to the situation in France. Everybody else lost; the Social Democrats as head of the minority government for everybody to see has closed a historical chapter of being the dominant bourgeois workers party. Under the pressure of the capitalist crisis the party has turned neo-liberal including supporting every attack of the EU on the working class - losing the support of the workers majority.

The main party of the bourgeoisie is right now having its own little event of greed as their leader has dressed up big time in luxury closing - paid by the party members. As a consequence the voters fled.

On April 25, 1974 a coup carried out by the Armed Forces Movement (MFA), in disagreement with the colonial war that had been going on for thirteen years in Mozambique, Angola and Guinea, put an end to the Portuguese dictatorship, which lasted 48 years under the direction of Antonio Salazar and under the leadership of Marcelo Caetano (after 1968). Thousands of people immediately left their homes, against the appeal of the military who led the coup – which insisted on the radio for people to stay at home -, especially in Lisbon and Porto, and it was with the people at their front door, shouting "death to fascism”, that the Government was surrounded in the Quartel do Carmo (Barracks of Carmo) in Lisbon; the doors of the prisons of Peniche and Caxias were opened for release all political prisoners; PIDE / DGC, the political police, was dismantled; the headquarters of newspaper of the regime, The Age, was attacked and the censorship was abolished.
