In the drive for profits, the US big three Ford, GM and Chrysler with the collusion of the UAW top leadership have said that they are ordering workers back to the factories on May 18th. The UAW union officials Rory Gamblel and Ray Curry even want the UAW staff tested before they return to work but refuse to fight for the same guidelines for all UAW auto workers.

11th May 2020 was the 6th anniversary of the referendum through which the People’s Republic of Donetsk was founded in the wake of the coup d’Etat engineered by the United States and the European Union in 2014 in Ukraine. This day is celebrated as Republic Day in the Donetsk People’s Republic. This year there were no mass celebrations because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Instead an international online conference was held. Savvas Mikhail-Matsas participated on behalf of the EEK of Greece (Workers Revolutionary Party) to address the meeting and celebrate this important day in the struggle against imperialism. We publish below a summary of his intervention at that meeting.

How can a historical Event be celebrated in times of distress? How can we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the world historical victory against fascism in 1945 without reducing it into a formal routine anniversary, or, even worse, into a diversion from the urgent needs of humanity? Only if the great Event, in all its dazzling brightness sheds light on history, revealing a path through the darkness of the present into a liberating future.

This May Day finds the proletariat fighting two wars: against the Covid-19 pandemic and against capitalism. The two fights are inseparably bound, for it is capitalism that set the conditions for the virus outbreak to turn rapidly into a global pandemic. It is the four decade-long capitalist assault on the healthcare system that deprived humanity of medical supplies when they are most needed. It is capitalist world trade that led capitalist states and politicians all around the world to deny, underestimate, or cover up the pandemic to keep “the economy running” rather than protecting people’s lives. And last, but definitely not least, it is the imminent unfolding of the Third Great Depression that haunts the hearts and minds of capitalists that turn them into panicked dictators forcing the workers to non-sanitized workplaces with little or no hygienic provisions.

This is an article written by a Cuban comrade before the Covid 19 crisis gripped the world. Since then Cuba has constantly been in the limelight as its actions of solidarity sending doctors and nurses and also material to countries around the world have gained great sympathy. Here we read about a more worrisome aspect of life in Cuba, the debate on the future of socialism on the island. The author of the article takes the side of Che Guevara on questions of the market and planning and calls for a systematic defense of the gains of the revolution. This is the original Spanish version of the article. We hope to have it translated into English presently and post that on RedMed as well.

Gavin Newsom, the governor of the state of California, delivered an important speech on the morning of April 9th, 2020. Criticizing the indifference of the Trump administration towards the crisis that the Coronavirus pandemic inflicted upon the entire country, the governor used some phrases that might sound strange to some ears. Newsom said that as a “nation-state”, California would supply all the necessary masks and medical equipment for itself and could even “export” these items to other countries. Thus, he uttered words that go beyond an ordinary high-level official’s criticism of the federal government for failing healthcare policies – words that blow separatist winds and hint at deeper fractures!

A state governor declaring the territory he rules a nation and going against the central government on that basis would be considered a rebellion by the ruling classes of such country. If the commanding heights of the US government were to react harshly to Newsom, such a well-known picture would have been complete. On the contrary, of they were to meet the speech with indifference, we could have considered it as unnecessary harshness going beyond its purpose.

Lenin, chief architect of history’s first successful workers’ revolution, would have been 150 on 22nd April this year if he were alive. He was not only a Russian revolutionary, but also one that belonged to the whole world. Lenin does not belong to Russians only. He belongs to us all.
Lenin for reconnecting with the proletariat. Lenin for ending the rule of the bosses and establishing proletarian power. Lenin for world revolution and fraternity of the peoples!

Η Πρωτομαγιά του 2020 είναι μοναδική στην ιστορία της εργατικής τάξης.

Η ανθρωπότητα ως σύνολο βρίσκεται αντιμέτωπη με μια πρωτοφανή καταστροφή εξαιρετικά απειλητικών διαστάσεων. Ταυτόχρονα, η πανδημία του κορωνοϊού πυροδότησε την έκρηξη όλων των άλυτων αντιφάσεων της παγκόσμιας καπιταλιστικής κρίσης. Ουσιαστικά, η πανδημία δείχνει ότι ο καπιταλισμός έχει πλέον αποδειχθεί ασύμβατος με τις πιο επείγουσες ανάγκες της ενεργού διαδικασίας της ζωής, κι έχει γίνει ιστορικό εμπόδιο, που μόνο η παγκόσμια σοσιαλιστική επανάσταση μπορεί και πρέπει να ξεπεράσει.

Buna ek olarak, Koronavirüs salgını, küresel kapitalist krizin çözülmemiş tüm çelişkilerinin patlayışını tetikledi. Bu salgın özünde kapitalizmin yaşamı sürdürmek için gerekli en acil ihtiyaçlarla uyumsuz, sadece dünya sosyalist devriminin üstesinden gelebileceği ve üstesinden gelmesi gereken tarihsel bir engel olduğunun apaçık ortaya çıktığını gösterdi.

Давайте организуем забастовки, чтобы заставить текстильные и швейные фабрики производить маски и защитное снаряжение, предприятия автомобильной и другой металлообрабатывающей промышленности - производить вентиляторы (не получив удовлетворения требований установить в цехах вентиляторы, недавно в США уволилась группа рабочих GeneralElectric), застройщиков - построить больницы вместо роскошных многоквартирных домов, транспортные компании - предоставить необходимое количество автобусов, чтобы обеспечить безопасные условия передвижения работников на работу и с работы!

War against the Coronavirus, war against capitalism’s brutal assault!
Let us organise strikes in those enterprises and workplaces that callously disregard all hygienic measures necessary to protect their workers! Let us organise strikes to force textile and garments factories to produce masks and protective gear, automotive and other mechanical industry factories to produce ventilators (a demand for which General Electric workers walked off their job recently in the US), developers to build hospitals in place of luxury apartment buildings, transport companies to provide their idly lying fleets of buses and smaller vehicles in order to get workers in the essential sectors to work safely!

Nobody lives a miserable existence, remaining jobless or even homeless and uncertain of their future. Hence the overall public health picture is incomparably better under socialism than under the richest capitalist country. Even in the case of the experience of socialist construction in the 20th century, bearing the burden of so many distortions and deformations and defects, this was an indubitable achievement. Capitalism, on the contrary, is class struggle. Capital does take a step back or two when circumstances impose that (the so-called “welfare state”). But when its interests dictate another course, it will step up class struggle and cut down on all social services in cold-blooded ruthlessness. Thus the neoliberal assault on all gains of the working class! The bourgeoisie, in a frenetic course to take back what it had conceded over the three decades from the end of the second war all the way up to Thatcher and Reagan, decimated the health care system around the world. That is why the patients are lying on the floors of hospital wards in Italy and Spain! That is why the richest city of the world, New York, home to Wall Street, is the epicentre of the pandemic!

Sosyalizmde kimse işsiz, aç açıkta, sefil yaşamaz. Dolayısıyla halk sağlığı koşulları çok daha iyidir. Bu 20. yüzyıl sosyalist inşa deneyimleri için bile tartışılmazdır. Oysa kapitalizm sınıf mücadelesidir. Sermaye işçi sınıfından ürktüğünde bütün bu alanlarda taviz verir vermesine. Ama çıkarı gerektirdiğinde de sınıf mücadelesini en acımasız tarzda yükselterek bütün bu hizmetleri tırpanlar. İşte neoliberal taarruz! Sermaye bütün dünyada son kırk yıldır sağlık sistemini delik deşik etmiştir. Bunun için bugün İtalya’da, İspanya’da hastalar yerlerde yatıyor. Bunun için dünyanın en zengin kenti, Wall Street’in vatanı New York dünyanın salgın başkenti haline geliyor!

Halbuki kapitalizm siniflər mübarizəsidir. Kapital fəhlə sinfindən ürkəndə bütün bu sahələrdə, əlbəttə, güzəştə gedir. Amma maraqları tələb edəndə də sinfi mübarizəni ən qəddar formada kəskinləşdirərək bütün bu xidmətləri dağıdır. Budur neoliberal hücum! Kapital bütün dünyada son qırx ildir səhiyyə sistemini deşik-deşik etmişdir. Odur ki, bu gün İtaliyada, İspaniyada xəstələr yerdə yatırlar.

En noviembre pasado, los iraníes salieron a las calles para protestar contra el aumento del costo de la vida y luego fueron duramente reprimidos por la República Islámica. Cientos de ellos fueron asesinados y miles detenidos. Ellos enfrentaron condenas de prisión de décadas y muchos de ellos se suicidaron por desesperación. Abrumadoramente jóvenes, los detenidos se vieron obligados a confesar bajo tortura crímenes que no habían cometido. La República Islámica supone que los levantamientos fueron organizados y coordinados por la oposición en el extranjero y los obligaron a confesarse a tal efecto. La mayoría de los detenidos ni siquiera pueden pagar un abogado y sus familias están demasiado asustadas para impugnar los procedimientos. Fuentes oficiales afirman que alrededor de 400 jóvenes entre las edades de 19-25 están encarcelados en la prisión de Teherán.

A few days ago, French president Emmanuel Macron started off his address to the nation on the Coronavirus pandemic with the following words: “We are at war”. Since then, the metaphor of humanity at war against an invisible enemy has become commonplace everywhere. However, the notorious “president of the rich” Macron, the restless warrior of the French bourgeoisie, might be possibly meaning something else when he says “war”: the war the bosses have declared on the working class and the laborers to protect their profits! Yes, in France as well as in Turkey and the entire capitalist world, there are two different wars.

Le coronavirus est devenu une pandémie et un fléau principalement parce que le capitalisme pille et détruit sans pitié le système de santé public partout dans le monde, de la Chine à l'Europe et aux États-Unis (où le système de santé était très faible déjà au départ) et depuis des décennies entravé son développement dans des pays plus arriérés et aussi en raison de l'appétit vorace pour le profit qui guide chaque choix fait par l'industrie pharmaceutique internationale.

The Coronavirus has become a pandemic and a scourge primarily because capitalism has been callously pillaging and destroying the public health care system all around the world, from China to Europe and the United States (where it was very weak to begin with) and has for decades impeded its development in more backward countries and also because of the voracious appetite for profit which guides every choice made by the international pharmaceutical industry.

Wall Street got shut down for the second time within four days on Thursday, March 12th. If the largest based index among the major three, S&P 500, falls by 7%, an automatic mechanism called the “circuit breaker” shuts down the stock market for 15 minutes to cool nerves. When this happened last Monday (March 9th), some claimed that it would be recorded in history as “Red Monday”. This label obviously entails a reference to the “Black Tuesday” of the notorious stock market crash of 1929. Yet, this time, as the same thing has occurred twice within a week, the inventors of the name might have additional tasks: “Red Monday”, then maybe “Orange Thursday”, then…

The Islamic Republic assumes that the uprisings were organized and coordinated by the opposition abroad and forced confessions to this effect. Most of the detainees cannot even afford a lawyer and their families are too scared to challenge the procedures. Official sources state that around 400 young people between the ages of 19-25 are imprisoned in Tehran prison.

The photograph above shows the homes of some of the dead soldiers, displaying the fact that these are humble cottages not even painted properly because the families in question cannot afford it.
