La posta in gioco in Algeria è sempre più alta. Il movimento di massa sta guadagnando un livello di fiducia tale che è diventato molto difficile per qualsiasi tipo di regime allontanarne le persone. L’8 marzo, in concomitanza con la Giornata internazionale della donna lavoratrice, il terzo round delle manifestazioni contro il regime di Abdelaziz Bouteflika (il moribondo presidente della Repubblica d’Algeria che cercava di candidarsi per la quinta volta nelle prossime elezioni) è riuscito in una spettacolare dimostrazione di forza: la maggior parte delle fonti parla di centinaia di migliaia di persone nella sola capitale di Algeri e di milioni di manifestanti in tutto il paese. Un quotidiano algerino (Le Matin d’Algérie) afferma, sulla base presumibilmente di rivelazioni da parte delle forze di sicurezza, che il numero di persone che hanno manifestato in tutto il paese ha raggiunto la cifra gigantesca di 15 milioni.

Il Venezuela è riuscito a fermare l'attacco paramilitare effettuato principalmente attraverso il confine con la Colombia, così come al confine con il Brasile, comandato dal Dipartimento di Stato degli Stati Uniti, dai suoi assistenti, i presidenti latinoamericani lacchè e il loro burattino Guaidó.

La prima cosa da sottolineare è che il colpo di Stato è ancora in corso; la provocazione del tentativo del 23F [febbraio, n.d.t.] per ora è fallita, ma è ancora una priorità sconfiggere il colpo di Stato e continuare ad affrontare ogni possibilità di invasione militare.

Il ritiro momentaneo del piano guidato dal “gruppo di Lima” era dovuto alla sua mancanza di sostegno, nessun settore del Paese si è ribellato come ci si aspettava, ci sono state dimostrazioni di opposizione al disgustoso intervento gringo, mobilitazioni e manifestazioni di ripudio quasi in tutto il mondo contro l'invasione; l'altro punto cruciale, su cui avevano sbagliato i calcoli, è stato la coesione dell'esercito venezuelano che ha continuato ad essere il garante del governo di Maduro.

Şimdiden 49 kişinin hayatını yitirdiği ve çok sayıda yaralının olduğu bu katliamı en güçlü duygularla kınıyoruz.

The barbarism which the capitalist system in decay has dragged the world in has risen in New Zealand with a brutal massacre. We condemn the massacre in which 49 people have already lost their lives and many were injured with our strongest emotions. In contrast to the crocodile tears shed by the imperialist leaders sitting on top of the rotten system which creates massacres, the pain we feel cements our resolve in struggling for the fraternity of peoples as much as it fuels our anger towards fascism and racism.

Las apuestas están aumentando en Argelia. El movimiento de masas está ganando un nivel de confianza del cual es muy difícil para cualquier tipo de régimen alejar al pueblo. El 8 de marzo, coincidiendo con el Día Internacional de la Mujer Trabajadora, la tercera ronda de manifestaciones contra el régimen representado por Abdelaziz Bouteflika, el moribundo presidente de la República de Argelia que intentaba presentarse por quinta vez en las próximas elecciones, logró aguantar una espectacular demostración de fuerza: la mayoría de las fuentes hablan de cientos de miles solo en la ciudad capital de Argel y de millones de personas en todo el país. Un periódico argelino (Le Matin d’Algérie) afirma, sobre la base, supuestamente, de las revelaciones de las fuerzas de seguridad, que el número de personas que se manifestaron en todo el país en general alcanzó la cifra gigantesca de 15 millones.

The stakes are rising in Algeria. The mass movement is gaining a level of confidence from which it is very difficult for any kind of regime to turn people back from. On 8th March, coinciding with the International Working Women’s Day, the third round of the demonstrations against the regime represented by Abdelaziz Bouteflika, the moribund president of the republic of Algeria trying to run for a fifth time in the upcoming elections, succeeded to put up a spectacular show of force: most sources talk about hundreds of thousands in the capital city of Algiers alone and millions around the country. One Algerian newspaper (Le Matin d’Algérie) affirms, on the basis, allegedly, of revelations from security forces, that the number of people who demonstrated across the country at large reached the gigantic figure of 15 million.

Although this may sound an exaggeration, whatever the exact figures, it is an undeniable fact that we are face to face with the most widespread mass mobilisation since the time of the Algerian war of liberation and revolution between 1954 and 1962. That revolution was of course one of the most heroic and far-going instances of the worldwide anti-colonial...

Venezuela logró detener la arremetida paramilitar realizada principalmente a través de la frontera con Colombia, así como en la frontera con Brasil, comandada por el Departamento de Estado de los EEUU, sus ayudantes los presidentes lacayos latinoamericanos y su títere Guaidó.

Lo primero a destacar es que el golpe de Estado sigue en proceso, fracasó la provocación del intento del 23F, por ahora, pero sigue en pie como prioridad derrotar al golpe y continuar enfrentando toda posibilidad de invasión militar.

El recule momentáneo del plan dirigido por el grupo de Lima se debió a su falta de apoyo, no se sublevó ningún sector del país como ellos esperaban, hubo concentraciones de oposición a la asquerosa intervención gringa, se dieron movilizaciones y demostraciones de repudio en casi todo el mundo contra la invasión, el otro punto crucial fue la cohesión del ejército venezolano que continuó siendo garante del gobierno de Maduro, calcularon mal.

Ассоциация марксистских объединений (сокращенно: АМО) была создана в 2005 г. по инициативе Первого секретаря ЦК РКП-КПСС Алексея Алексеевича Пригарина. Инициатива была тотчас поддержана Российской партией коммунистов (РПК) и рядом общественных и политических активистов, придерживавшихся марксистских взглядов, являвшихся членами РКП-КПСС и РПК, а также входивших и не входивших в другие левые политические партии и объединения. Замысел создания АМО заключался в объединении тех идейных и политических оппонентов режимов, возникших в России и других государствах, бывших республиках СССР, в бывших социалистических странах Центральной и Восточной Европы после контрреволюционных переворотов 1989-1991 гг., которые не отказались от своих убеждений, не опустили рук и не прекратили борьбы за воссоздание действительно обновленного, современного социализма. При этом они исходили из того, что возрождение подлинного социализма и восстановление СССР невозможно без развития подлинного марксизма и превращения его в действительно революционное руководство к действию.

Association of Marxist Communities (abbreviation in Russian: AMO) was established in 2005 at the initiative of the First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Russian Communist Party - the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (abbreviation: RCP-CPSU) Alexey Alekseyevich Prigarin. The initiative was immediately supported by the Russian Communist Party (abbreviation: RCP) and a number of the public and political activists adhering to Marxist views, being members of the RCP-CPSU and RCP and also of some other left-wing political parties and associations as well as not being members of any organization. The idea of establishment of AMO consisted in the integration of certain ideological and political opponents of the regimes that arose in Russia and other states, either former republics of the USSR or members of the former communist block of Central and Eastern Europe after the counter-revolutionary coups of 1989-1991. These were people who did not renege on their beliefs, did not lay down arms and did not stop the fight for the reconstruction of a really updated, modern socialism.

On 1st March, some hundreds of people started to march immediately after leaving the mosque in the wake of the Friday prayer, chanting against the candidacy of the incumbent president of the republic Aziz Bouteflika for a fifth time after 20 years in power, and in the wink of an eye were joined by thousands and later tens of thousands. The marches and protests continued on Saturday and Sunday, swelling to hundreds of thousands of demonstrators, according to the reports on international bourgeois mainstream media. Sunday even saw a demonstration late into the night. Considering that it is forbidden to demonstrate in the capital Algiers at all times (elsewhere, apparently, it is only permitted on Wednesdays) and that no night time rallies have been held in that city for at least two decades, the size of the movement is phenomenal.

The popular insurgency in Sudan has now completed a full two months. The people of Sudan have been demonstrating on the streets of the country since 19 December 2018 to demand from the despot Omar al Bashir “tasqut bas” (“Just fall” or “Fall, that is all” as sometimes translated). More importantly, the demonstrations have turned from a popular rebellion that protested economic catastrophe and political brutality into a full-blown revolution that threatens the very foundations of the despotic Islamist dictatorship of al Bashir, who came to power three decades ago, in 1989. Not only has there been a gradual gathering of forces on the part of the movement that is fighting to bring down al Bashir, but growing fissures in the ruling bloc are showing that the regime is trying to preserve itself through dire measures that may even sacrifice the dictator al Bashir himself in order safeguard the interests of the socio-economic bloc that has been benefiting from the regime.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
