BRAZIL

For a United Front against the Coup! Now!

For a united front of the entire Left against the coup, on the streets, in the elections, in the places of work, study and housing! Now!

We hereby translate and reprint a statement by our comrades from the Frente Comunista dos Trabalhdores (Brazil) regarding the escalating threats for a new coup by the counter-revolution.

Alert Manifesto by the Communist Workers’ Front, FCT - LCFI Brazil


A day after the carnival, the Army, the Globo TV channel and the Temer government escalated military intervention in the country's second most important state, as an prelude for the imposition of a new regime in the country. One month after the start of the intervention, a popular parliamentarian was executed, in a public street in the center of the city, with four shots in the face. Nobody should be fooled by the stories about a “robbery”. This was a message from the coup leaders to the Left. Their goal is to terrorize those who take a stand against the military intervention, to which the city council is also opposed. The following week and in broad daylight, armed fascist militias threatened Lula, the top leader of the masses and favorite candidate of the population, who is about to be arrested by the regime.

GREEK

The far-right provocation will not be tolerated!

This statement was originally published in Greek on 26 January 2018. It is not so much an in-depth analysis of the Macedonian issue; its emphasis is laid on the wave of resurgent –and utterly reactionary– Greek chauvinism.

Communist Revolutionary Action ★ Avantgarde

Against the chauvinist rallies!

The enemy is within “our own” country!

We take the streets on both Saturday and Sunday in internationalist, anti-fascist rallies!

Since Sunday 21/1, the country is living in the rhythm that has been imposed by the far-right sewer and the deep state, after the nationalist rally in Thessaloniki.


The official government is also dancing to the tunes of the far-right -as it usually does every time the situation gets tense- carrying out the orders of the EU and the liberals of the reactionary movement “We Stay in Europe”. In order to comply with those who are truly in power in this country, the police turn a blind eye to or even support the fascist provocations, as was the case three times in Thessaloniki when they attacked together the Free Social Space “School”, unsuccessfully, and were repelled by the self-defense; a little later they torched the anarchist squat Libertatia, with the police preventing even the fire brigade from approaching. The joint action of fascists and SWAT police (MAT) continued the following day, when they attacked a 2,500-strong rally in solidarity with the Libertatia squat, beating and tear-gassing dozens of demonstrators and arresting 5 of them on serious –as well as baseless– charges.

VENEZUELA

Defend Venezuela against Chile-Style Imperialist Coup

Socialist Fight - LCFI Britain

Louis de Saint-Just, French Revolutionary, January 1793:
“Those who make revolution half way only dig their own graves”.

Following the ouster of Zuma in South Africa on 15th February and of Mugabe in Zimbabwe on 21st November imperialist-sponsored coups Venezuela seems to be next in line for the treatment. Anyone who thinks that the shoe-in of Ramaphosa, the Butcher of Marikana, will mean the end of their long nightmare is a politically naive idiot. Ramaphosa is about to begin imposing an even worse nightmare now, which was the purpose of ousting Zuma, and the same applied to Mugabe. What bastards this pair were, the Washington Post and the New York Times and the British Times and Telegraph told us, this fire we have prepared for you is much better than that frying pan.

SOCIALIST FIGHT STATEMENT: GENERAL ELECTION 2017 REVIEW

Class politics returns to Britain
10/6/17

The widely proclaimed return of two party politics in this election is the return of class politics in Britain. The statistics show the middle ground is giving way; Conservative (Tory) at 42.4% was its highest share of the vote since 1983. 1959, at 49.4% and 1955, at 49.7% are the Tory post war highs. Labour’s at 40.2% was its highest since 2001. Its highest post war was 1951 at 48.8%. Their share in 1945 was 47.8% and in 1966 it was 47.9%.

Introduction
In this centenary year of the Russian Revolution, the single greatest progressive event in human history, we recognise the global class faces great dangers but we are also confident that great opportunities will arise for those who continue to fight for that programme of world revolution. The crisis unleashed by subprime mortgages and the Lehman brothers collapse of 2008 still reverberates in the global economy. This unresolved crisis of debt and falling rates of profits, endemic to the capitalist mode of production itself, as Marx analysed, has engendered the rise of national chauvinism and economic protectionism.

TRUMP MOVES ON TO ADVANCE THE IMPERIALISM'S AGENDA

As Trump's populist electoral approach is hijacked by the establishment, he moves on to advance the imperialism's agenda

Obama’s eight-year legacy as the empire’s commander in chief became consolidated abroad as ultra-interventionist through the implementation of policies that varied from parliamentary coups in regions such as Brazil, Argentina, and Egypt to terrorizing drone military wars in most parts of the Middle East.

Domestically, the working class vanguard recognizes him by his constant assault on minorities by creating a police state that killed many young black lives and escalated the deportation of Latino and Muslim immigrants to numbers never seen before. His fake demagogy of “hope” unveiled his true imperialism agenda: to deepen America’s working class exploitation, but most importantly to escalate terrorism in the Middle East and destabilize the BRICS by pushing for the implementation of a new cold war.

HANDS OFF SYRIA!

New drums of humanitarian intervention
Hands off Syria!
09/04/2017
P. Kar, KED
This article was originally published in Greek on April 6, a few hours before the US strikes against Syria.

1990, a few weeks before the US attacked Iraq. The picture depicts Nayirah, who presented herself as a nurse in a Kuwaiti hospital, and went on to testify that the Iraqi army threw babies out of their incubators, leaving them to die ‘on the cold floor’. It would be later revealed that she was actually the daughter of the Kuwaiti embassador to the US.

The liberation of Aleppo from the clutches of the reactionary opposition and the subsequent stream of victories of the Syrian Arab Army and its allies forced the US government to put its tail between its legs and temporarily accept the reality on the ground: the defeat of its proxy armies and, along with them, the defeat of an important part of its strategy on Syria and the…

TRUMP INAUGURATION - SWL-LCFI PAMPHLET

The Election of Trump: An Existential Threat to the Organised Working Class in the USA and Globally
20 - 01 - 2017
Liaison Committee for the Fourth International Statement


As a working class, we must unite all oppressed to oppose the imperialist ruling class at home and its imperialist maneuvers around the world!

More than ever it is necessary to unify our class, women, whites, blacks, Muslims, Indians, Asians, Latinos, LGBTQ and immigrants against the rising police state. Donald Trump is an oafish, far-right racist, Islamophobic, sexist, misogynist homophobic, ablest bigot who rose to power with the support of a far-right constituency that includes white supremacists and fascist groups such as Ku Klux Klan. His victory has greatly strengthened these groups’ ideology as it has also happened in Britain after the Brexit, in Europe and internationally.

Racist attacks on immigrants are proliferating and are bound to advance strongly in the next years. We are for black self-defense, as the Black Panthers defended themselves in their fight against the police state that will get a big boost under Trump.

INTERNATIONAL DECLARATION ON LIBERATION OF ALEPPO

The Liberation of Aleppo and the Tasks of Anti-imperialist Revolutionary Socialists

    1. The final liberation of Aleppo in mid-December 2016 is a defeat of the jihadist militias sponsored by the USA and its allies in Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Libya, to name the most prominent. A victory for imperialism on Aleppo here would have dealt an enormous blow to the Syrian and Middle East working class.
