The overthrow of the Transitional Sovereignty Council and the dismissal of the transitional government in Sudan is not simply a military coup, as the “international community” of imperialists and the Western media have been hammering, but a counter-revolution. Having started in December 2018, the Sudanese revolution put an end to the 30-year dictatorship of Omar al Bashir and had the dictator himself thrown into prison in April 2019, but then went on to continue the sit-in in front of the General Command of the armed forces for two months. After the massacre of 3 June 2019, when over one hundred martyrs fell, the heroic people of Sudan rose again on 30 June. The Transitional Military Council, which had taken over after the fall of al Bashir had to give in to the power of the revolutionary masses, but manoeuvered to set up a Transitional Sovereignty Council to share power with the representatives of the leadership of the revolution, which at that time was in the hands of the Forces for Freedom and Change and at its head the Sudan Professionals Association.

Revolutions are those moments in history when treading the middle ground is the most suicidal road. The experience of the Sudanese revolution has shown this much more clearly than many other revolutions. The Sudanese Professionals Association, which fought the forces of repression courageously until July 2019, suddenly yielded in front of the military and hoped that a moderate line would bring them and their revolution good. They found out, however, to their great chagrin, that there is no way to reconcile revolution and counter revolution. Fortunately, the revolution came into its own in bewildering speed. To squander this second chance by trying to rehash the road that has been tried and failed would be folly. The Sudanese revolution must go to the very end if it is not to suffer a catastrophic defeat the next time around. Only those who have nothing to lose will go to the end. Not the better-off petty-bourgeoisie represented by the Sudanese Professional Associations or the Forces for Freedom and Change, but the Resistance Committees that have sprung from the bosom of the poor working-class neighbourhoods and fight the police and the army no matter what happens. There is...

Statement by the EEK (Workers Revolutionary Party of Greece)

 A 18 years old young Roma has been murdered by Greek Police in Perama, Piraeus.

– the Mitsotakis right wing government covers up and protect the killers

 

The murder of the young Roma was committed by 7 police officers of the special DIAS force, well known for its brutality.

Late in the night of Friday, October 22, the DIAS unit, after a long pursuit of three minors Roma, 15-18 years old, who apparently they had stolen a car, in the area of Renti, trapped then in Perama and opened massive fire with their guns. One young Roma, 18 years old, was killed on the spot. Another, 16 years old was seriously wounded by three bullets in the belly, while a third, 15 years old, escaped.

Disciplined, fed with the lowliest ideological garbage, entranced by the feeling of superiority that derives from the erstwhile colonial feats of European civilisation and of their own country, full of rage against the immigrant and the refugee, who, they believe, has robbed them of their job, housing, educational and healthcare services, a crowd full of missionary zeal. The only missing thing is their militia, their paramilitary forces, their bands of thugs. But this is precisely why we do not label them as fascists, but proto-fascists. That they can overcome this lacuna in the wink of an eye has been demonstrated in Charlottesville, Virginia in the events of summer 2017 or in the German cities of Chemnitz and Köthen last autumn or in the chain of events in which black immigrant farm workers were attacked (and occasionally killed) in Italy after Salvini came to power in a coalition government last year.

The Wednesday of September 8 witnessed the fascist arson of the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) offices and various opposition media institutions by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) goons in the Indian state of Tripura. An attack like this, which resulted in massive material damage and injured tens of people including party members and journalists, is not the first of its kind in recent history.

Marx’s reference to Hegel has been proven right once more: every historically significant event takes place twice – first as tragedy, then as farce! The Egyptian Revolution had ended in tragedy. It seems like the imperialist coup d’Etat in Tunisia will look like a caricature of its Egyptian counterpart in 2013.

Marx’ın Hegel’e atıfla söylediği söz yine haklı çıktı: Tarihte her büyük olay iki kere gerçekleşiyor. İlkinde trajedi olarak, ikincisinde komedi! Mısır devrimi bir trajedi ile sona ermişti. Öyle görünüyor ki, Tunus’taki emperyalizm darbesi onun bir karikatürü olacak.

События, произошедшие на Кубе в воскресенье, 11 июля 2021 года, к настоящему времени знакомы всем во всем мире и не нуждаются в повторении. Почти беспрецедентная волна протестов вспыхнула во многих городах по всей стране, включающая три различных набора требований: требования, связанные с ужасным экономическим кризисом и чрезвычайной ситуацией в области здравоохранения, которые захватили страну; требования свободы выражения мнений, собраний, ассоциаций и т.д.; требования свергнуть то, что некоторые из демонстрантов назвали “диктатурой”. Это последнее требование было дополнено лозунгом “patriayvida” (родина и жизнь), который был разработан в качестве альтернативы знаменитому лозунгу кубинской революции “patriaomuerte” (родина или смерть)

Τα γεγονότα που συνέβησαν στην Κούβα την Κυριακή 11 Ιουλίου 2021, είναι πλέον γνωστά σε όλους σε όλο τον κόσμο και δεν χρειάζεται να τα επαναλάβουμε. Ένα σχεδόν άνευ προηγουμένου κύμα διαμαρτυριών ξέσπασε σε πολλές πόλεις σε ολόκληρη τη χώρα με τρεις διαφορετικές κατηγορίες αιτημάτων: αιτήματα που σχετίζονται με την τρομερή οικονομική κρίση και την κατάσταση έκτακτης ανάγκης στην υγεία που στραγγαλίζει τη χώρα˙ αιτήματα για ελευθερία έκφρασης, συνάθροισης, συνδικαλισμού κ.λπ.˙ αιτήματα ανατροπής αυτού που ορισμένοι από τους διαδηλωτές ονόμασαν «δικτατορία». Αυτό το τελευταίο αίτημα συμπληρώθηκε από το σύνθημα “patriayvida” (πατρίδα και ζωή), που σχεδιάστηκε ως εναλλακτική στο περίφημο σύνθημα της κουβανικής επανάστασης “patriaomuerte” (πατρίδα ή θάνατος).

Los hechos que ocurrieron en Cuba el domingo 11 de julio de 2021 ya son familiares para todos en todo el mundo y no es necesario repetirlos. Una ola de protestas casi sin precedentes estalló en muchas ciudades de todo el país que involucró tres conjuntos distintos de demandas: demandas relacionadas con la terrible crisis económica y emergencia de salud que han tomado al país en sus garras; demandas de libertad de expresión, asamblea, asociación, etc .; demandas para derrocar lo que algunos de los manifestantes llamaron la “dictadura”. Esta última demanda se complementó con el lema “patria y vida”, que fue diseñado como una alternativa al famoso lema de la revolución cubana “patria o muerte”.

Küba’daki 11 Temmuz protestoları ile ilgili üç ayrı niteleme yapılmış durumda. Hükümet bunların karşı devrimciler ve komünistler arasındaki bir çatışma olduğunu iddia ediyor; burjuva basın ezilenlerin diktatörlüğe karşı başkaldırısı olarak anlatıyor; bazı başkaları ise bunun yozlaşmış bürokrasiye karşı devrimci işçi sınıfının ayaklanması olduğunu savunuyor.
Bunların hiçbirisi protestoların doğasını anlamak için faydalı değil.

De manera casi simultánea y con mayor o menor intensidad, el domingo 11 de julio Cuba vivió una serie de estallidos sociales que abarcaron al menos a 6 de las 14 provincias que conforman el país. En los 62 años transcurridos desde el triunfo de la Revolución dirigida por el comandante Fidel Castro, Cuba no había enfrentado una situación como ésta.

In diesen Tagen sind ein großer Teil der Leih- und Werkvertragsarbeiter*innen (ab jetzt LWA) der iranischen Öl- und Gasindustrie im Streik. Die landesweiten Streiks wurden vor 16 Tagen (19. Juni) begonnen und jetzt sind mehr als 40 tausend LWA in mehr als 80 Industrieanlagen für Öl und Gas im Streik 1 (Siehe die Forderungen der LWA im 1. Anhang). Denjenigen, die die Nachrichten über weltweite Arbeitskämpfe folgen, ist schon bewusst, dass im Iran zumindest seit zehn Jahren tägliche Proteste und Streiks der Arbeiter*innen zu „normalen“ Ereignissen des Tages gehören. Die Verschärfung des Neoliberalismus2 wurde mit der strukturellen Ineffizienz und Korruption des Staats, den massiven Kosten der steigenden Militarisierung sowie den internationalen Wirtschaftssanktionen kombiniert, um zusammen zu einer tiefgehenden Krise zu führen.

Ülke genelinde çok sayıda şehirde daha önce eşi hemen hemen görülmemiş biçimde patlak veren protesto dalgalarının, her biri ayrı düşünülmesi gereken üç dizi talebi vardı: yaşanan korkunç ekonomik kriz ve sağlık sisteminin içinde bulunduğu acil durum ile ilgili talepler; ifade, gösteri ve örgütlenme özgürlükleri ile ilgili talepler; bazı protestocuların “diktatörlük” olarak tanımladığı sistemin alaşağı edilmesine yönelik olanlar. Bu son talebe, Küba devriminin meşhur “ya vatan ya ölüm!” sloganına alternatif olarak tasarlanan, “hem vatan hem yaşam!” sloganları da eşlik etmekteydi.

The events that occurred in Cuba on Sunday, 11 July 2021, are by now familiar to everyone around the world and need not be repeated. An almost unprecedented wave of protests broke out in many cities across the country involving three distinct sets of demands: demands related to the terrible economic crisis and health emergency that have taken the country in their grip; demands for freedom of expression, assembly, association etc.; demands to bring down what some of the demonstrators called the “dictatorship”. This last demand was complemented by the slogan “patria y vida” (homeland and life), which was designed as an alternative to the famous slogan of the Cuban revolution “patria o muerte” (homeland or death).

Возвращение исторических лидеров марксистского движения в центр исторического размышления может означать разные вещи в случае разных деятелей. Для такого человека, как Антонио Грамши, долгое время подвергавшегося оскорблениям со стороны либеральных левых и тщательно искаженного для того, чтобы служить их собственным интересам, акт, который пытается вернуть его в центр внимания марксистов, подразумевает почти своего рода реабилитацию, своего рода переоткрытие после того, как на протяжении десятилетий навалилось столько сброда. Для такого человека, как Карлос Мариатеги, это означает расширение географического и национально-культурного охвата марксизма на области, которые считаются периферийными по отношению к капиталистической мировой системе, примерно Латинская Америка в его случае. Для Розы Люксембург это означает сразу так много вещей, что только серьезный анализ ее практических достижений и сферы ее теоретических интересов может оживить большой интерес, который она представляет для марксистов разных взглядов.

The return of the historic leaders of the Marxist movement to the centre of historical reflection may imply different things in the case of different figures. For someone like Antonio Gramsci, long abused by the liberal left and thoroughly distorted in order to serve their own interests, an act that tries to return him to the centre of the attention of Marxists implies almost a kind of rehabilitation, a kind of rediscovery after so much rabble has been heaped on him throughout the decades. For someone like Carlos Mariátegui, it means expanding the geographic and national-cultural reach of Marxism into areas that are considered to be peripheral to the capitalist world system, roughly Latin America in his case. For Rosa Luxemburg it means so many things at once that only a serious analysis of her practical achievements and of the scope of her theoretical interests can bring alive the great interest she presents to Marxists of different persuasion.

Days and weeks have passed since the political earthquake of the US elections on November 3, and the aftershocks, very high on the Richter scale, continue.
Nero Trump insists on denying his defeat, the world burning – and like any Nero likes to sing when Rome and the universe burn…
His first act, after the election, was to depose Defense Minister Mark Esper, who last summer refused to send troops to suppress the popular uprising following the murder of George Floyd. Esper was replaced by Christopher Miller, a former Green Special Forces Colonel and director of the National Counter-Terrorism Center (NCTC). He then forced the resignation of Deputy Defense Secretary James Anderson, third in command, and placed his Praetorians in key positions at the Pentagon and security services.

So the peoples’ rebellion has come back to the United States of America. And what a comeback! At the time of writing, the people have been on the streets for three weeks already, have united black and white (and Latino/a and Asian and all the others) in the fight for justice and social provision, have defied the aggressive tactics of the police from New York to California, have humiliated Trump in his quest for recourse to the military in fighting the masses, have thus “dominated” the street, to use Trump’s military term, to the chagrin of the forces of “law and order”, and have thus wrested concessions from the forces of the established capitalist order. What achievements!
