On 17th October Lebanon erupted. 2 million people have since come out in cities and towns across this country of 7 million. People from all walks of life, except the crême de la crême, have since staged demonstrations, blocked roads, occupied Martyrs’ square in Beirut and other public spaces, marched to ministries, the Central Bank, and other agencies they hold responsible for the plight of the country, and waged strikes by workers in different industries. For a period of two whole weeks all public schools and universities were shut down, with children and teenagers of all ages, from elementary school pupils all the way up to university students, joining the demonstrations. Lebanese University, the biggest public university, was a major centre of agitation, especially its main campus in Hadath. Schools then opened, but students have kept up their political activity.

Renaissance Ouvrière Révolutionnaire, our sister organisation in France, was naturally present in the ranks of the French workers and people during the big general strike in that country. Here is a first report form our comrades.

The French working class has been preparing for this day for months. December 5 was chosen as the starting date of the general strike against the law that makes it possible for the ordinary French worker to get his or her pension only in the grave! The organization of the French bourgeoisie MEDEF had demanded this for years and President Emmanuel Macron who executes without any reserve when ordered by MEDEF rolled up his sleeves to pass this law. The answer was clear. Meetings were held at each station, leaflets were distributed in every corner, and almost every day another sector or layer of the working class declared their support for the strike. The D-day came and the switches started to turn off as from the evening of 4 December, and on 5 December in all the important cities of France, the streets were taken by the working class.

It will be an important event, especially in the context of the uprisings that have shaken the Middle East and North Africa region and Latin America.

Los trabajadores y los pobres de Irán esperaban una señal. La señal llegó el viernes 15 de noviembre. El gobierno decidió cancelar los subsidios a la nafta y aumentar el precio del litro de nafta en un 50% para los primeros 60 litros mensuales y en un 300% para los litros siguientes. Todo Irán se rebeló. Lo mismo ocurrió con el evento de los Chalecos Amarillos en Francia (ver artículo “The Yellow Vests...”), con la revolución sudanesa (ver artículo “Sudan Revolution”), con la “Revolución de media jornada” de Ecuador (ver artículo “Yarım günlük...”), e incluso en Chile, donde la explosión no fue el resultado de una subida del precio del combustible, sino de una modesta subida de los precios del subte (ver artículo “Tahrir’den Tahrir’e...”). Las subidas de precios y tarifas no son la razón de los levantamientos recientes. Los pueblos del mundo están sencillamente esperando agazapados a que la clase capitalista haga un movimiento erróneo. Eso es todo. Ahora se ha unido Irán, una vez más, como veremos más abajo, a la tercera ola de la revolución mundial (ver artículos “Tahrir’den Tahrir’e...”, “Tremble with fear...”, y más anterior “2018: year of the resurgence...”).

On 1st October last month, precisely on the 70th anniversary of the second most important revolution of the 20th century, the Chinese revolution, the Iraqi revolution broke out in particular in the Shiite region of the country. The Communist Party of China has long abandoned the path of the revolution it had once led, but the working people of Iraq were saying, as it were, that revolution was not left out in the cold.

Iraq’s revolution is based entirely on the rightful grievances of its toiling population: joblessness, extremely poor social services, and immense corruption. The rate of unemployment has reached 30 per cent among the youth. The importance of this piece of statistics comes through when one remembers that 54 per cent of the population of 38 million of the country are under the age of 24. The lack of services bears bitterly ironic dimensions, since the supply of electric power is extremely unreliable even in the oil-rich city of Basra. There is also a lack of sanitation across the country: water is not available in potable quality and even agriculture suffers from this miserable supply of water. As for the corruption, this is a systemic ill through which the...

İran’ın işçileri ve yoksulları bir işaret bekliyordu. O işaret 15 Kasım Cuma günü geldi. Hükümet benzin sübvansiyonunu kesti ve benzinin fiyatına ayda kullanılan ilk 60 litre için %50, daha sonrası için ise %300 zam yaptı. Tüm İran ayağa kalktı. Bunun benzeri, Fransa’da Sarı Yelekliler olayında, Sudan devriminde, Ekvador’daki ‘yarım günlük devrim’de, ve hatta Şili’de, her ne kadar burada ayaklanmanın tetikleyicisi yakıt fiyatlarındaki artış yerine metro fiyatlarındaki ufak bir artış olsa da, yaşanmıştır. Fiyatlar ve ulaşım bedellerindeki artışlar bu isyanların nedeni değildir. Dünya halkları adeta pusuya yatmış ve sermayedar sınıfın yanlış bir hareketini beklemişlerdir. Olan bundan ibarettir. İran, az sonra anlatacağımız gibi tekrardan, dünya devriminin üçüncü dalgasına katılmıştır.

We are publishing below the English translation of the statement DIP (the Revolutionary Workers Party) issued in Turkish on the very first day of the coup in Bolivia. This is why it does not refer to the phenomenal mass movement that erupted against the coup later, starting with the march from the city of El Alto neighbouring La Paz and using the slogan “Ahora sí, guerra civil!”, putting a civil war on the agenda. Support for this movement is the key to any serious opposition to the coup. Given the right conditions, the defensive struggle against the coup can even turn into a revolutionary crisis.

A demonstration took place in Athens on Thursday night, October 24th, for the liberation of Georges Ibrahim Abdallah. Over 100 comrades participated in the demonstration in front of the French embassy in Athens.

Georges Ibrahim Abdallah has been held in the French prisons since 1984, for 35 years -he is the most long-held political prisoner in the world. His crime is that he has joined the struggle for the liberation of Palestine, he is a communist and he struggled and keeps struggling against imperialism, Zionism and the Arab bourgeoisies.

La operación “Peace Spring” (Primavera de la Paz) fue suspendida en su octavo día a través de un acuerdo entre los EE.UU. y Turquía. Una evaluación preliminar apunta claramente a la derrota política de Erdogan y el AKP (Partido de la Justicia y el Desarrollo). Erdogan se vio obligado a detenerse en la línea de 120 km de Tel Abyad - Ras al-Ayn, sin siquiera alcanzar el control total de Ras al-Ayn, cuando apenas un día antes había afirmado que Turquía no se detendría hasta establecer una zona segura de 30 km de profundidad y 440 km de longitud desde el río Éufrates hasta la frontera con Iraq.

Gli Amici della Palestina contro l'imperialismo e il sionismo hanno tenuto una manifestazione di fronte al consolato generale francese a Istanbul e hanno chiesto l'immediata liberazione di Georges Ibrahim Abdallah, un rivoluzionario libanese e un coraggioso amico dei palestinesi.

Fu arrestato dalla Francia nel 1984, e in seguito accusato di essere un membro delle Lebanese Armed Revolutionary Factions , un'organizzazione che ai poteri imperialisti a sostegno dell'occupazione israeliana in Libano nel 1982 fece pagare un prezzo per la loro parte nelle atrocità che affrontarono i popoli della regione. Secondo la legge, Abdallah potrebbe essere liberato dopo 14 anni, ma gli Stati Uniti e lo stato illegittimo di Israele hanno richiesto il contrario dalla Francia. Di conseguenza, la Francia, "État de droit" d'Europa, ha mantenuto la prigionia di Abdallah fino ad oggi. È il più vecchio prigioniero politico in Europa e la sua prigionia ha raggiunto il suo 35 ° anno.

Нам хорошо известно, что ваша страна переживает очень глубокий экономический кризис, самый глубокий в капиталистическом мире на данный момент, находясь, возможно, даже на пороге дефолта. Нам горько от осознания того, что часть рабочего класса, в частности безработные, бедные и нищие в Аргентине, сталкиваются с серьезной угрозой голода. Это почти повторение кризиса первых лет этого столетия, с которым рабочие и рабочие Аргентины справились тогда в борьбе, известной как славная Аргентиназа 2001-2002 годов. И все же главный выбор, который встанет перед народом Аргентины на предстоящих выборах, - это выбор между одной из двух сил, управлявших страной после того печально известного кризиса. С одной стороны, Маурисио Макри под командованием МВФ и Трампа, а с другой - экс-президент перонист Кристина Фернандес Киршнер и ее фронтмен Альберто Фернандес, бросающие вызов Макри.

He was arrested by France in 1984, and afterwards accused for being a member of the Lebanese Armed Revolutionary Factions, an organization that ensured the imperialist powers backing the Israeli occupation of Lebanon in 1982, pay a price for their share in the atrocities that the peoples of the region faced. According to the law, Abdallah could be liberated after 14 years, but the USA and the illegitimate state of Israel demanded the opposite from France. As a result, France, the "État de droit” of Europe, maintained Abdallah’s captivity until today. He is the oldest political prisoner in Europe and his captivity reached its 35th year.

The major candidates for president are Mauricio Macri, the incumbent president, and Alberto Fernández, joint candidate of various Peronist tendencies with the definitive stamp of Cristina Fernández Kirchner, twice president between 2007-2015 and considered to be the nationalist left-wing of the Peronist movement. The result of the presidential election is almost certain: The primary elections (so-called PASO) of 11th August have clearly given a quasi insurmountable lead to Alberto Fernández.

In Notebook 2 from Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research, we sketch out the outlines of the contemporary production process that results in Apple’s iPhone. We move from a look at the iPhone’s production to the inner workings of profit and exploitation. We are interested not only in Apple and the iPhone, but more particularly in the Marxist analysis of the rate of exploitation at play in the production of such sophisticated electronic devices. It is necessary, we believe, to learn how to measure the rate of exploitation so that we know precisely how much workers deliver into the total social wealth produced each year.

The great poet of the dawn of the bourgeois age, William Shakepeare, in what is probably his most renowned play, Hamlet, has one of his charaters say, “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark”, words that have become engraved, like many a Shakespearean line, in the common memory of humanity. Had Mahmoud Darwish, the great poet of the Palestinian revolt, not passed away in 2008, he would possibly have written a verse today, in allusion to that of Shakespeare, depicting out times: “Something is bleeding and seething in the Arab world”.

We wrote on behalf of the thousands of medical professionals in Bulgaria who have been "on the street" for 7 months now, protesting, resigning, striking and blocking roads in opposition to unhealthy working conditions and inadequate healthcare pay. Due to the chronic shortage of personnel in the sector, we have to work under difficult conditions, for which we receive a basic salary of less than 250 Euro per month. Therefore many of us are forced to work in two or more places in order to survive. There is a huge lack of staff in the system (about 30,000 short) due to workers who have left the country and their places are currently occupied by pensioners (over 70 years old) or carers (students or people without medical education). We work for 0.12 euro cents an hour night work rate, overtime is almost never paid, there are no mandatory medical standards (one nurse cares for between 30-40 patients in one clinic), which physically does not allow us to take good care of the patients.

11 Ağustos’ta gerçekleşen ön seçimler (PASO) Arjantin’de neredeyse eşi görülmemiş bir durum yarattı. Derin bir ekonomik krizin bir yıldan fazla süredir yıkıcı bir hal izlediği ülkede, iktidardaki Macri hükümeti krizin yükünü emekçi kitlelerin omuzuna yüklemek ve böylelikle burjuvaziye verdiği sözleri yerine getirmek için İMF ile olan iş birliğini devam ettirmek adına ikinci bir dönem daha iktidarda olmak istiyordu. En büyük rakibi tarihi Peronist hareketin Kirchnerci kanadıydı. Macri'nin 2015 yılında iktidarı devralmasına kadar iki kez cumhurbaşkanı olan Cristina Fernández Kirchner, sözüm ona sol yönelimi nedeniyle uluslararası burjuvazinin günah keçisi idi. Günün somut koşullarını değerlendiren bu burjuva siyasetçisi, kendisine ortak aday olarak uluslararası finans kapitalin adamı olan Alberto Fernández’i (sadece isim benzerliği, mevcut iki aday arasında akrabalık yok) seçti. Kirchner’in Frente de Todos’u (Herkesin Cephesi) Macri’nin Cambiemos’unun (Değişelim) ana rakibi oldu.

Las PASO del 11 de agosto han creado una situación casi sin precedentes en Argentina. En un país donde una profunda crisis económica ha causado estragos durante más de un año, el gobierno de Macri buscaba un segundo mandato con el propósito de continuar su colaboración con el FMI para poner toda la carga de la crisis en los hombros de las masas trabajadoras, cumpliendo así sus promesas al capital financiero internacional y a la burguesía doméstica. Su principal competidor era el ala kirchnerista del histórico movimiento peronista. Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, dos veces presidenta hasta que Macri asumió en 2015, fue un chivo expiatorio de la burguesía internacional, por su supuesta orientación de izquierda. Calculando para las circunstancias concretas del día, esta política burguesa escogió a un lacayo del capital financiero internacional, Alberto Fernández, un homónimo pero sin relación, como su compañero de fórmula. Su “Frente de Todos” se convirtió así en el principal contendiente al Cambiemos de Macri.

El sistema político-administrativo turco está históricamente moldeado según el sistema francés clásico (es decir, pre-UE) de centralismo unitario, de modo que los gobernadores de las 81 provincias de Turquía (la contraparte de los departamentos en Francia) son simplemente funcionarios del estado central, cuyas carreras pueden también incluir, y a menudo lo hacen, el puesto de jefe de policía, o los puestos de gobernante y superintendente de policía, ambos vinculados al ministerio del interior. Así, la nueva configuración implica que la administración de las tres ciudades de Diyarbakır, Van y Mardin será ejercida por la administración central, prácticamente aboliendo, para estas tres provincias principales, el así llamado sistema municipal o sistema de gobierno local, que ha sido un pilar histórico de la burguesía turca. De hecho, para encontrar una situación en la cual los cargos de gobernador provincial y de alcalde fueran ocupadas por una misma persona designada centralmente, ¡hay que remontarse al periodo anterior a 1960!
