Il y a exactement 80 ans, le 20 août 1940, un pic à glace brandi par un agent stalinien a brisé le crâne de Trotsky, entraînant sa mort le lendemain. Ce pic à glace ne visait pas seulement l'un des plus grands révolutionnaires du XXe siècle, l'un des intellectuels les plus influents de son temps sur la scène internationale, l'un des plus grands théoriciens du marxisme de tous les temps, mais aussi la continuité du bolchevisme et de la Révolution d’Octobre en Russie et dans le monde. Il s'agissait donc d'une tentative d'assassiner l'héritage de Lénine, le plus grand révolutionnaire du XXe siècle.

Naves das Marinhas de Guerra no Mediterrâneo e no Egeu em comoção, aviões de caça ziguezagueando no ar e, por trás de tudo isso, os interesses das classes dominantes da Grécia e da Turquia em confronto severo. Esse confronto pode até resultar em um desastre de guerra. Os estados burgueses grego e turco apresentam reivindicações conflitantes sobre suas respectivas jurisdições marítimas. Aqueles que defendem essas reivindicações também fingem que estão defendendo seus próprios interesses nacionais em benefício de seu próprio povo. A verdade é exatamente o oposto.

Πολεμικά πλοία στη Μεσόγειο και το Αιγαίο σε αναταραχή, μαχητικά αεροπλάνα που κάνουν ελιγμούς στον αέρα και πίσω απ’ όλα αυτά, τα συμφέροντα των κυβερνουσών τάξεων της Ελλάδας και της Τουρκίας σε έντονη σύγκρουση. Αυτή η αντιπαράθεση μπορεί να οδηγήσει ακόμη και σε καταστροφικό πόλεμο. Τα αστικά κράτη, ελληνικό και τουρκικό, προβάλλουν αντικρουόμενες αξιώσεις για τις αντίστοιχες θαλάσσιες δικαιοδοσίες τους. Εκείνοι που προβάλλουν αυτούς τους ισχυρισμούς προσποιούνται επίσης ότι υπερασπίζονται το εθνικό τους συμφέρον προς όφελος του δικού τους λαού. Η αλήθεια είναι το ακριβώς αντίθετο.

It was exactly 80 years ago, on 20th August 1940, that an ice-pick wielded by a Stalinist agent shattered Trotsky’s skull, leading to his death the next day. That ice-pick was not aimed only at one of the greatest revolutionaries of the 20th century, one of the most penetrating intellectuals of his time on the international scene, one of the greatest theoreticians of Marxism of all times, but also on the continuity of Bolshevism and of the October revolution in Russia and internationally. It was thus an attempt at assassinating the heritage of Lenin, the greatest revolutionary of the 20th century.
Respect the great man! Carry on the work that he considered the most important work of his life! Return to Bolshevism, the Comintern and Lenin! If you do not, then all your efforts to follow him will fail because that was the mission he set himself. Moving away from Lenin puts a revolutionary movement, whatever the phraseology used, at a distance to Trotsky as well. Thus the watchword should be clear: return to Trotsky via Lenin. So that you can lead the hundreds of thousands of honest and sincere rank-and-file workers and youth in the so-called communist parties to Lenin via...

Bu karşı karşıya gelişin bir sıcak savaş felaketiyle sonuçlanması tehlikesi dahi mevcuttur. Yunanistan ve Türkiye burjuva devletleri bölgede deniz yetki sahaları ile ilgili farklı tezler ileri sürmektedir.

Turkey has occupied the international agenda of all revolutionaries in the near past with its near-genocidal actions against the Kurdish people, both in its own territory and in Rojava.

Bundan 75 yıl önce, ABD İkinci Dünya Savaşı’nın sonunda Hiroşima (6 Ağustos 1945) ve Nagazaki’ye (9 Ağustos 1945) birer atom bombası attı. Tarihte ilk kez ve şu ana kadar da bir defaya mahsus olarak, insanlık bir savaşta nükleer silah kullanıldığına şahit oldu.ABD emperyalizminin nükleer saldırısı 360 bin kişinin ölümüne ve on yıllar boyu tüm nüfusun radyasyondan etkilenmesine yol açtı. İkinci Dünya Savaşı'nın sonunda ABD, Japonya'nın yenilgisi hemen hemen kesinleştiği halde bu iki nükleer katliamı gerçekleştirdi. Japonya’nın şehirleri 9 Ağustos’a gelinceye kadar sayısız bombardımanla harap olmuş, özellikle tarihe Tokyo Bombardımanı (10 Mart) olarak geçen saldırıda Amerikan uçakları Napalm bombaları ile doğrudan sivil halkı hedef almıştı. 220 bin evin yanıp tahrip olduğu bu saldırıda da yaklaşık 7500 kişi katledilmişti.

75 years ago, at the end of the Second World War, the USA dropped two atomic bombs, one on Hiroshima and one on Nagasaki. For the first time in history and once only so far, humanity thus witnessed the use of nuclear weapons in a war. The nuclear attack organised by US imperialism led to 360 thousand casualties and an enduring impact of radiation on the whole population for decades. The US carried out this massacre even as the defeat of Japan was a foregone conclusion at this point towards the end of World War II. The cities of Japan had been devastated by numerous bombardments up until 9th August. In particular, in the attack that went down in history as the Tokyo Bombardment (10th March), American war planes targeted the civilian population directly, using Napalm bombs. On that occasion, when 220 thousand homes were destroyed, approximately 7,500 people were murdered.

Tänään 4.8.2020 on Haft Tapehin työläisten 52. lakkopäivä. Tähän historialliseen lakkoon kulminoituu heidän vuosia kestänyt taistelunsa oikeuksistaan ja yksityistämisen peruuttamiseksi. Haft Tapehin liitto perustettiin ensimmäisen kerran 1974-75, mutta islamilaisen tasavallan työläisvihavieliset ja anti-vallankumoukselliset linjaukset ja panettelu tekivät siitä laittoman, kuten sadoista muistakin ammattiliitoista.

 

Vuosien 2005-2006 aikana, kun Haft Tapehin työläiset saivat kuulla että tämä julkinen laitos yksityistetään, he nousivat yhteen ääneen tätä vastaan ja jälleenrakensivat ammattiliittonsa vuonna 2007. Poliisit ottivat välittömästi kiinni pääorganisaattorit ja muut liiton johtavissa tehtävissä olleet. Heidät pidätettiin ja heiltä kiellettiin protesteihin ja muihin tilaisuuksiin osallistuminen.

 

Tästä tukahduttamisesta huolimatta Haft Tapehin työläiset herättivät yksityistämisen vastaisen taistelun uudelleen henkiin vuonna 2018. Vastauksena tähän liiton johtaja Ismail Bakhsi vangittiin ja hänet pakotettiin antamaan “tunnustuksia” kansallisella televisiokanavalla.

Σήμερα (4 Αυγούστου 2020)είναι η 52η μέρα της εργατικής απεργίας σε μια αγροτική επιχείρηση στο Ιράν, την Χαφτ Ταπέχ. Αυτή η ιστορική απεργία είναι η κορύφωση χρόνων πάλης των εργατών, για να σταματήσουν τις ιδιωτικοποιήσεις και να διεκδικήσουν τα δικαιώματά τους. Το σωματείο της Χαφτ Ταπέχ ήταν το πρώτο που ιδρύθηκε κατά τη διάρκεια του 1974-75 αλλά οι αντεργατικές πολιτικές και η συκοφαντία της Ισλαμικής Δημοκρατίας περί αντεπαναστατικής δραστηριότητας από τη μεριά των εργατών τελικά οδήγησε στην απαγόρευσή του, όπως ακριβώς εκατοντάδες άλλων ενώσεων.

 

Κατά τη διάρκεια του 2005-2006, λαμβάνοντας τα νέα της ιδιωτικοποίησης αυτής της δημόσιας εταιρείας οι εργάτες της Χαφτ Ταπέχ εξεγέρθηκαν ενάντια σε αυτήν σαν μια γροθιά και οικοδόμησαν ξανά το σωματείο το 2007. Οι επικεφαλής οργανωτές αμέσως συνελήφθησαν από τις αστυνομικές δυνάμεις και άλλα ηγετικά μέλη του σωματείου επίσης συνελήφθησαν και τους απαγορεύτηκε να παρακολουθούν διαδηλώσεις και άλλα κοινωνικά γεγονότα.

We have lent our support and ideas to the anti-racist popular revolt numerous times in these pages. We have pointed out to the absence of organized labor as a whole (that is, beyond notable individual examples) from the scene as a major obstacle, and accused the union bureaucrats for stifling rank-and-file activity for the fear of this sort of activity getting out of their hands. The participation of the working class with its full strength, autonomous organizations and demands, we have said, would both carry the revolt further by a great leap. Finally, we pointed to the International Longshore and Warehouse Union’s (ILWU) massive Juneteenth rally in Oakland, California as an important first step, but only a first step.

On July 20th, Monday, a second major step has occurred. Organized under the label “Strike for Black Lives”, various workers belonging to a number of labor unions took action in support of the popular revolt in some 200 cities across the country.

The Berkeley candidate Terry Taplin, on the other hand, claims to be independent, and moreover, has named his platform a “Labor Slate”. This, we understand, is at least a formal break with the Democratic Party, the shadow of which has been hovering over the DSA for long. We deem independent candidates running against age-old Democrats under the banner of labor to be a positive development. In our numerous written materials, we have put forward the slogan of a “clean independent slate for a workers’ party, workers’ candidates, and a workers’ government”.
