The Great British Lie - The United Kingdom Independence Party are Anti Establishment Outsiders




The UK Election and its ritualistic election politics are underway controlled and contrived by the British Media.

Democracy and Class Struggle  thinks it necessary to turn our attention to what is "new" in this Election to learn what deception and self deception bourgeois politics has in store for us today.

Leaving aside the Scottish National Party who we will address in another article the "new force" in English politics is the British Nationalist United Kingdom Independence Party which could get 4 million votes in this election.

UKIP is led by a spiv and wide boy called Nigel Farage a former commodity trader who has deep roots in the City of London  working not only at the London Metal Exchange but also at Drexel Burnham Lambert, Credit Lyonnais, REFCO and Natexis Metals - a true City of London insider.

UKIP  has attracted the financial support of Schroders Fund Manager Andy Brough and Hedge Fund manager Crispin Odey and of course the largest ever Tory donor Stuart Wheeler of City based IG Index has become an enthusiastic UKIP financial supporter.

From a firm city financial base UKIP has attracted some industry men like Paul Sykes of the Paul Sykes Group in the North of England to pay for some of his advertising past and present and a million pounds from former Tory donor Arron Banks of Brightside Insurance and "ex" pornographer and Daily Express owner Richard Desmond has chipped in another million - truly millions stand behind Nigel Farage.

The BBC has invited Nigel Farage on dozens of occasions on its flagship programme Any Questions where he poses as an outsider  - the BBC is very good at "grooming".

Nigel Farage has been well and truly "groomed" for "British" political leadership.

When the City of London Piper calls the tune Nigel Farage does not disappoint his financial capitalist masters.

Since the 2008  Financial crash Nigel Farage has been busy blaming immigrants as contributors to this crisis deflecting blame from his City of London chums who should all be doing prison sentences for fraudulent trading.

Just to churn out more money from his chums Nigel introduced the Aids and Foreigners NHS scare to keep the millions rolling in.

So much for these rank UKIP outsiders with their firm City of London Financial base of support groomed by the BBC.

Truly the Great British Lie that the United Kingdom Independence Party are anti Establishment outsiders.

May Day Protest in Turkey "Our Hands and Our Minds are stronger than their Weapons"




Ukraine: Remember Odessa - Never Forget the Atrocities of the Banderite Fascists of May 2nd 2014




We demand the fascists who fire bombed and murdered 42 people in the Trade Union House of Odessa on 2 May 2014 are found and brought to justice!

No impunity for... Banderite fascists!

On May 2, 2014, dozens of people were killed in Odessa, Ukraine, after far right thugs set the Trade Union House on fire.

 Amongst those killed were many who were participating in the anti-Maidan "Kulikovo field" protest camp, including communist activists.

There has not been any serious investigation into the events by the Ukrainian authorities.

The Solidarity with Antifascist Resistance in Ukraine campaign was established at a London meeting on June 2nd, 2014, and one of its aims is precisely "to demand that the killers of 42 people at the House of Trade Unions in Odessa on May 2nd be brought to justice."

On May 2nd, 2015  gathering outside the Ukrainian embassy in London to demand JUSTICE FOR ODESSA - NO IMPUNITY FOR FASCIST KILLERS





Democracy and Class Struggle says we must never forget the fallen brothers and sisters and comrades.

London May Day 2015 - Red and International Proletarians of all Countries Unite




 
Democracy and Class Struggle offers a Red Salute to our class brothers and sisters in CPGB ML and to their political line against Labour Reformists and Trotskyists and Anarchists.
 
We have our differences with CPGB ML on the National Question in British Isles and Imperialism and some important questions of Marxism Leninism Maoism but they are contradictions amongst friends and not with the enemy.
 
  Long Live Proletarian Internationalism.
 
Our Views are outlined in the May Statement which we signed below
 
RED AND INTERNATIONALIST MAY DAY!
 

Crises, wars, repression, oppression, unemployment, poverty! 
Proletarians and oppressed people, let us unite and take the future in our hands! 
Long live Revolution! 

 
Imperialism continues crossing a deep economic crisis and unloading it on the proletarians and peoples of the world. They speak about recovery, but the only thing that recovers is the rush to profits, wealth and arms.

For the proletarians, poor peasants and other people’s masses in every country of the world, instead, we see unemployment, labour laws increasing precariousness, exploitation and slavery, misery, plunder of raw materials and energy resources, devastation of environment and territories. Youth without work are now the majority, in spite of their educational and cultural growth. New technologies are used to make more profits, intensify exploitation and the despotic command and control on labour and increase the destructive power of arms.

Against this situation proletarians and masses rise up, in the imperialist countries, as well as in the countries oppressed by imperialism. Proletarians and masses cannot accept a worse and worse condition of life and work; a life of hardship with neither hope, nor future, and they hate more and more their oppressed and harassers.

In the oppressed countries, workers, peasants and youth have repeatedly come out in the streets braving severe repression to fight back the attacks on their livelyhood; the peasantry, main force for the New Democratic Revolution, withstand the reactionary anti-peasants policies of displacement and annihilation and persist in the struggle for lands against old and “new” forms of semi-feudal domination, base of the imperialist rule.

In the imperialist countries the uprisings of youth and immigrants from Ferguson to Stockholm, to the banlieues in Paris, the general workers’ struggles, which often clash with the repressive apparatus of the State.All of this show that the revolution, as tendency and need, is increasingly emerging and clashes the reactionarization and fascistization of states and governments.

Wherever, in the struggles and people’s wars, the forefront role of women advances, to put an end to the heinous class and gender oppression that fills the streets of the world of rapes, femicides, and to demand a revolution for a true liberation. In order to face and prevent the people’s rebellion, imperialists, their States, their right or claimed “left” governments, respond with fierce repression, massacres, persecution; demagogy and plotting. They establish police states that rub out political, social and individual freedoms, in a vain attempt to stop the people’s wave and the revolutionary organization of masses.

They also employed the enticements of the electoral farce of reformist, social-democrats and revisionist in order to contain the rage of the mass within their reactionary system. These forces foster the illusion that some ‘pro-people’ government can overcome the ravages of the crisis; for instance, in Greece, highest expression of the crisis in Europe, forces of new social democracy as SYRIZA, come to power as a last resort, but they are not able to stand up to the diktats of European capital and banks or give response to the needs and struggle of masses. Also if the service done to imperialism by such fake left forces who misguide the masses still remain as a hurdle, in many countries the masses respond with the intensification of the class struggle and an increasingly massive abstention and boycott.

In Ukraine and Eastern Europe reactionary, also Nazi-like, forces advance, supported by US, EU and NATO, in a framework of inter-imperialist contention with Putin’s Russia. The masses are justly struggling against fascism and Western imperialism, but they need a genuine communist leadership to be not pawns of imperialist Russia expansionism.

The rebellion of proletarians and masses demands a radical change and the only means to achieve this is to overthrow, weapons in hand, the ruling classes and establish a new society free from exploitation, oppression and imperialism. Within the crisis become inter-imperialist contradictions sharpen and tendency to a new world partition war becomes more and more insistent – although the contradiction between imperialism and people and nation oppressed remains the principle contradiction  in the world – the revolution remains the main trend and is embodied by the potential new wave of the world proletarian revolution.

In order to become successful new democratic revolutions marching to socialism in the countries oppressed by imperialism, and proletarian and socialist revolutions marching to communism in the imperialist countries, the rebellions of masses need a genuine revolutionary communist party in each country, a united front of all the exploited and oppressed masses led by the proletariat and a revolutionary people’s army. Where the masses lack these instruments, their heroic and bold struggles are defeated and / or end to be prey of reactionary forces, always tied to imperialist system, that can not free them from the social, economic and political chains.

In the name of the war on terrorism, imperialism unleashes wars and domestic terror. But imperialism is the true terrorism, the monster that we must fight and overthrow. What in the world is worse than imperialism? Imperialism, especially US, intensifies the policy of war, invasion and aggression in Iraq, Afghanistan and fosters wars in Syria, Libya Yemen and throughout the Middle East and West Asia. They respond to the people’s revolts in the Arab countries by installing in power forces that continue the policy of the old tyrants and regimes, as in Egypt, in cahoots and alliance with the Zionist gendarme, Israel, and other reactionary regimes in the region, from Turkey to Iran, Saudi Arabia.


In these wars and interventions, they arm feudal and reactionary forces which then turn against them, bringing the war within the imperialist countries themselves with fierce attacks that undermine the security and strength of those States, within which there are masses and sections of rebel immigrants who hate imperialism. In the field where these direct and indirect interventions took place, imperialismcontinues applying the policy of Low Intensity Conflict (LCI) with agents and plots to put masses against masses, to divert the target of the struggles of the oppressed peoples from of their main enemy, at the aim of dividing the anti-imperialist united front, as now in Syria facing the Arab and Kurdish masses.

Where the ISIS advances, the masses fight and resist, as Kurdish masses, with a leading role of women, in the front row in Rojava, Kobane. But only by fighting with the People’s War, not only the ISIS but also imperialism and the reactionary regimes in the region, the masses can free themselves from social and national oppression.


The bourgeoisie and its sophisticated intellectuals, in the imperialist citadels as in the centers of culture in the countries oppressed by imperialism, sing the funeral of the working class and its ideology, powerfully drawn by Marx, Engels Lenin, Stalin Mao, but in every corner of the world we are witnessing a huge resumption of the workers’ struggle, classist and combative, that shakes the citadels of capital, also in China, as well as all countries of the alleged development of capital , the so-called, “emerging countries”.


In the imperialist system, big countries, such as Brazil, Turkey, etc. are crossed by strong struggles of workers, peasants and other masses and show how the economic rise of these countries under the rule of imperialism makes them “giant with feet of clay” and land of revolution. There is no place in the world that does not see tensions and sharpening of the class struggle. In this framework it is the People’s War, led by Marxist-Leninist-Maoist parties, the only strategic reference of the liberation struggle.


The People’s War in India, hitting directly at one of the major bastions of imperialism and reaction in the world, has roused great enthusiasm among the revolutionary masses all over the world and become a powerful internationalist rallying point. Together with the People’s Wars in the Philippines, Peru, and Turkey, it continues to undermine imperialism and shows the path to overthrow the system of exploitation and oppression of imperialism and the feudal reactionary forces and the construction of a new power and society.


The Marxist-Leninist-Maoists communists in the world must construct and strengthen Communist Parties to take up their tasks of leadership and development, ridding their ranks of revisionist and capitulationist tendencies, as Prachandism in Nepal, Avakianism in the US, the Right Opportunist Line, in all forms, in Peru, etc., without falling, at the same time, into the sterile petty bourgeois revolutionarism and dogmatism. The building of the communist parties must take place in the fire of the class struggle with close tie with the masses, in function of the revolutionary struggle for the power.


This May Day 2015 calls us to lift high and strong the red flag of communism and revolution in every demonstration, in every anti-imperialist struggle in the world, bringing and renewing with strength the slogan of: “Proletarians and oppressed peoples of the world, unite!”


Let us unite to stop imperialist and reactionary wars, to crush imperialism and reaction around the world!


Let us salute the martyrs of the people and revolution, let us support the struggle and free revolutionary and communist political prisoners around the world! 


Let us bring forth the genuine proletarian internationalism in the leadership of proletarian struggles, in the struggles of the peoples to create the conditions and advance towards an international organisation of communists 


Let us support people’s wars until victory!


Let us take the future of communism in our hands!

Mumia Dying in Prison - He Needs Us NOW !






Letter To PEN Protesting Charlie Hebdo Award


After all the solidarity and #JesuisCharlie hashtag, Charlie Hebdo ridicules the African migrants who drowned whilst on their way to Europe. They wrote 'Family Reunion in the Mediterranean'.

Democracy and Class Struggle is pleased to note the opposition to Charlie Hebdo receiving the PEN Literary Award by authors and literary people - the pseudo progressiveness of Charlie Hebdo is a reflection of the current confusion of intellectuals who pose as leftists but act as rightists in defence of Charlie Hebdo and needs to be exposed..

The Letter to PEN is published below.


In March it was announced that the PEN Literary Gala, to be held May 5th 2015, would honor the magazine Charlie Hebdo with the PEN/Toni and James C. Goodale Freedom of Expression Courage Award in response to the January 7 attacks that claimed the lives of many members of its editorial staff.

It is clear and inarguable that the murder of a dozen people in the Charlie Hebdo offices is sickening and tragic.

What is neither clear nor inarguable is the decision to confer an award for courageous freedom of expression on Charlie Hebdo, or what criteria, exactly, were used to make that decision.

We do not believe in censoring expression. An expression of views, however disagreeable, is certainly not to be answered by violence or murder.

However, there is a critical difference between staunchly supporting expression that violates the acceptable, and enthusiastically rewarding such expression.

In the aftermath of the attacks, Charlie Hebdo’s cartoons were characterized as satire and “equal opportunity offense,” and the magazine seems to be entirely sincere in its anarchic expressions of disdain toward organized religion. But in an unequal society, equal opportunity offense does not have an equal effect.

Power and prestige are elements that must be recognized in considering almost any form of discourse, including satire.

The inequities between the person holding the pen and the subject fixed on paper by that pen cannot, and must not, be ignored.

To the section of the French population that is already marginalized, embattled, and victimized, a population that is shaped by the legacy of France’s various colonial enterprises, and that contains a large percentage of devout Muslims, Charlie Hebdo’s cartoons of the Prophet must be seen as being intended to cause further humiliation and suffering.

Our concern is that, by bestowing the Toni and James C. Goodale Freedom of Expression Courage Award on Charlie Hebdo, PEN is not simply conveying support for freedom of expression, but also valorizing selectively offensive material: material that intensifies the anti-Islamic, anti-Maghreb, anti-Arab sentiments already prevalent in the Western world.

In our view, PEN America could have chosen to confer its PEN/Toni and James C. Goodale Freedom of Expression Courage Award upon any of a number of journalists and whistleblowers who have risked, and sometimes lost, their freedom (and even their lives) in service of the greater good.

PEN is an essential organization in the global battle for freedom of expression. It is therefore disheartening to see that PEN America has chosen to honor the work and mission of Charlie Hebdo above those who not only exemplify the principles of free expression, but whose courage, even when provocative and discomfiting, has also been pointedly exercised for the good of humanity.

We the undersigned, as writers, thinkers, and members of PEN, therefore respectfully wish to disassociate ourselves from PEN America’s decision to give the 2015 Toni and James C. Goodale Freedom of Expression Courage Award to Charlie Hebdo.

Ukraine : Borotba May Day Statement 2015




Until recently, we all perceived May 1 as a reason to open barbecue season, walk in a ritual procession under the red flag, and spend time with friends at parties. Now this day is filled with new meaning for us.

Ukraine lies in ruins.  Donbass bleeds, factories close, the lights increasingly go out in cities, people have lost their jobs and savings, pensioners are on the verge of survival. In one year, the country has been transformed from a poor European power into an impoverished and backward war-torn colony; now the Ukrainians, by income level and life, are the envy of only the most oppressed African countries.

This all happened before our eyes, the reality surpassing even the wildest negative forecasts and expectations.

Now

 
We are robbed: utility rates have risen more than three times, the hryvnia fell three times, inflation has exceeded 40 percent, salaries and pensions are not indexed to please the IMF, taxes increased twice. 

The result is that the Ukrainian worker is now five times poorer than last year!

We are killed: in combat, casualties among troops and civilians exceeded the losses of the Soviet Army in 10 years of war in Afghanistan; millions have become refugees, lost their homes and property.

On May 2, the anniversary of the Odessa tragedy, we remember those who gave their lives defending their right to truth and justice.

We are silenced: the new government unleashed political terror, killing journalists and politicians who dare to disagree with the "European" rulers. Those who did not want to or could not go abroad were thrown into prison, where they were subjected to torture and extrajudicial killings.

We are forbidden: the law banning communist ideology leaves no doubt about who came to power and what kind of "democracy" is waiting for us. Anti-communism is one of the signs of fascism.

We are constantly being lied to: the atmosphere of hatred in the media distorts people's minds, journalists have turned into war propagandists, and will never be able to write and speak the truth, after irreversible mental changes and the destruction of personality. 

At a time when telling the truth is life-threatening, many prefer to remain silent or leave Ukraine.

 

What to do?

 
Today the May 1 holiday is again a day of struggle. The only way to stop poverty and terror is with solidarity. The solidarity of all working people of Ukraine, from Pavlograd miners, Kiev teachers, Kharkov workers, Dnieper steelmakers, Black Sea shipbuilders and port workers, farmers of Podolia and Galicia, together with the miners and militias of Donbass, will put an end to the looting and murder, will return Ukraine to the path of development, democracy and socialism.


Borotba calls on every Ukrainian who is tired of waiting and wants to act:

- Produce and distribute leaflets daily (if you need help, please contact us), start with a single leaflet per day;
- Create anonymous accounts on social media and conduct propaganda there; 
- Paint graffiti in the streets of your town;
- Conduct discussions with relatives and friends, talk about workers' protests in Ukraine and solidarity actions abroad;
- Observe secrecy, never give out your real information in propaganda work, use the anonymous Internet browser TOR;
- Participate in all social protests: miners, Chernobyl, workers, teachers, defrauded investors, soldiers' mothers, they are all the people of Ukraine, they are all our allies;
- Report your work to Borotba’s website, we have to show that Ukraine is struggling and inspire others.

On to victory!

May Day declaration in ARABIC -from Tunisian Comrades


أيها البروليتاريون في كل بلدان العالم اتحدوا  !
من أجل واحد ماي أممي أحمر !
أزمات ، حروب ، قمع ، اضطهاد ، بطالة ، فقر ...
أيها العمال و الشعوب المضطهَدة لنتّحد و لنأخذ مصيرنا بأيدينا !
تحيا الثورة !
ما تزال الامبريالية تتخبط في ازمة اقتصادية عميقة ، وهي تحوّلها إلى عبء ثقيل على أكتاف بروليتاريي العالم و شعوبه . و يتحدث الامبرياليون عن " ازدهار اقتصادي " لكن الشيء الوحيد الذي "ازدهر " هو السباق المحموم لتكديس الأرباح و الثروة و الأسلحة . و تترجم هذه الأزمة بالنسبة للبروليتاريا و الفلاحين الفقراء و الجماهير الشعبية في كل بلدان العالم بالبطالة و سنّ القوانين التي تشرّع التشغيل الوقتي و الاستغلال و العبودية و البؤس و نهب المواد الأولية و مصادر الطاقة و كذلك تقنين تدمير البيئة و الأرض .
و رغم أن عدد الشباب المتعلم في تزايد فإن أغلب المعطلين عن العمل هم من الشباب . و تُستعمل التكنولوجيا الجديدة لمزيد مراكمة الأرباح و التكثيف من الاستغلال بأكثر تسلطا و استبدادا و كذلك للزيادة في القوة التدميرية للأسلحة .
ان البروليتاريا و الجماهير الشعبية في البلدان الرأسمالية كما في البلدان المضطهَدة تنتفض لإدانة هذه الوضعية . فالبروليتاريا و الجماهير عامة لم تعد تقبل بتدهور ظروف عيشها و شغلها مما جعلها تفقد الأمل في حياة و مستقبل أفضل فيزيد حقدها أكثر على مضطهديها . ان العمال و الفلاحين و الشباب في البلدان المضطهّدة أصبحوا لا يترددون في النزول إلى الشارع لمواجهة أقسى أشكال القمع من أجل الدفاع عن حقهم في حياة أفضل . و الفلاحون الفقراء الذين يمثلون القوة الرئيسية في ثورة الديمقراطية الجديدة يصمدون أمام السياسات الرجعية المعادية لهم و المتمثلة في اقتلاعهم من أراضيهم و تدمير حياتهم ، فهم يستميتون في النضال من أجل الأرض و ضد كل الأشكال القديمة و "الجديدة " للهيمنة الشبه اقطاعية التي تمثل أساس الهيمنة الامبريالية . أما في البلدان الرأسمالية فإن هبّات الشباب و المهاجرات و المهاجرين – من فرغسون إلى ستوكهولم مرورا بضواحي باريس – و نضال العمال و العاملات تتصادم مباشرة مع الجهاز القمعي للدولة .
كل هذا يبين بوضوح ان الثورة – كتوجه و كضرورة – بدأت تُطِلّ مصطدمة بالطابع الفاشي و الرجعي المتزايد للأنظمة و الحكومات . و تلعب النساء في النضال و الحروب الشعبية دورا رياديا من أجل وضع حدّ للاضطهاد الجنسي و الطبقي و المتمثل في تزايد عمليات الاغتصاب و الاغتيال فهن يتمسكن بالثورة من أجل تحقيق تحررهن الفعلي .
و لاستباق التمرد الشعبي و مواجهته يفرض الامبرياليون – بدولهم و حكوماتهم اليمينية أو " اليسارية" قمعا وحشيا مكثفة المجازر و عمليات التعذيب و الديماغوجيا و المؤامرات ، و عندما يعجزون عن كبح جماح الغضب الشعبي و التنظم الثوري للجماهير فإنهم يلجؤون إلى أجهزة الدولة البوليسية فيمنعون الحريات السياسية و الاجتماعية و الفردية . و يستعمل الامبرياليون أيضا أسلوب الاغراء بمغازلة الاصلاحيين و الاشتراكيين الديمقراطيين و التحريفيين عن طريق مسرحية الانتخابات على أمل تدجين الغضب الشعبي و حصْره في إطار الصراع داخل النظام الرجعي . ان هذه القوى تنشر الأوهام حول حكومة " ذات توجه شعبي " يمكن أن تصلح ما دمرته الأزمة . ففي اليونان حيث تجد الازمة التي هزت كامل أوروبا أوضح تعبيراتها تمّ تمكين قوى الاشتراكية الديمقراطية الجديدة ( سيريزا ) من السلطة كآخر حلّ ، لكن سيريزا لا يمكن أن تخرج عن إملاءات رأس المال الأوروبي و إملاءات البنوك و لا يمكنها أن تلبي حاجيات الجماهير أو تستجيب لنضالاتها . و إذا واصلت هذه القوى – اليسارية المزعومة – دورها كمعرقلٍ لنضال الشعب فإن الجماهير ستكثف من الصراع الطبقي في العديد من البلدان و ستقاطع شيئا فشيئا مسرحية الانتخابات .
في أوكرانيا و أوروبا الشرقية تحرز القوى الرجعية و حتى الفاشية المكشوفة تقدما وهي في ذلك مدعومة من الولايات المتحدة و الاتحاد الاوروبي و حلف الناتو في إطار الصراع بين الامبرياليات مع روسيا بوتن . إنه من حق الجماهير أن تناضل ضد الفاشية و الامبريالية الغربية لكن لابدّ أن تكون لها قيادة شيوعية حقيقية حتى لا تتحول إلى بيدق بيد الامبريالية التوسعية الروسية .
إن البروليتاريا و الجماهير الشعبية بتمرّدها تريد تغييرا جذريا و ان السبيل الوحيد لتحقيق ذلك هو اسقاط الطبقات المهيمنة بقوّة السلاح و ارساء مجتمع جديد محرر من الاستغلال و الاضطهاد و من الامبريالية. و في الظرف الحالي للازمة يحتدّ التناقض بين الامبرياليات شيئا فشيئا و يتجه الوضع نحو حرب جديدة لإعادة اقتسام العالم ، و رغم ذلك فإن التناقض بين الامبريالية و الشعوب و الأمم المضطهدة يظل هو التناقض الرئيسي ، و تبقى الثورة هي التوجّه الرئيسي وهي تتنزل في إطار الموجة الجديدة للثورة البروليتارية العالمية . و لكي تتحول حركات تمرد الجماهير إلى ثورات ديمقراطية جديدة نحو الاشتراكية في البلدان المضطهَدة من طرف الامبريالية و إلى ثورات اشتراكية بروليتارية نحو الشيوعية في البلدان الامبريالية لابد من إيجاد حزب شيوعي ثوري حقيقي في كل بلد و جبهة موحدة لكل الجماهير المستّغّلة و المضطهدة بقيادة البروليتاريا و جيش شعبي ثوري . و في الحالة التي لا تمتلك فيها الجماهير هذه الأدوات فإن نضالاتها البطولية و الشجاعة ستنتهي إلى الهزيمة أو أنها تسقط فريسة للقوى الرجعية المرتبطة بدورها بالنظام الامبريالي و التي لا يمكن أبدا أن تحرر الجماهير من قيودها الاجتماعية و الاقتصادية و السياسية التي تكبّلها . و باسم الحرب على الارهاب تنشر الامبريالية الإرهاب و تشعل الحروب و هي في الواقع الارهابي الحقيقي و الوحش الذي يجب علينا قتاله و الإطاحة به . فهل هناك شيء أسوأ من الامبريالية في هذا العالم ؟
تكثّف الامبريالية – و خاصة الامبريالية الأمريكية – من سياسة الحرب و الغزو و العدوان في العراق و أفغانستان و تسلك خيار الحرب في سوريا و ليبيا و اليمن و كل الشرق الأوسط و آسيا الغربية . و قد ردّت القوى الامبريالية على الانتفاضات الشعبية في الأقطار العربية بتنصيب قوى سياسية مؤهلة لمواصلة سياسة الطغاة القدامى و أنظمة – كالنظام المصري – متواطئة مع الكيان الصهيوني – شرطي المنطقة – و مع بقية الأنظمة الرجعية من تركيا إلى ايران مرورا بالعربية السعودية . و عبر هذه الحروب و التدخلات تقوم الدول الامبريالية بتسليح القوى الاقطاعية و الرجعية التي تنثني ضدها بعد ذلك و تنقل الحرب إلى البلدان الامبريالية نفسها بتنظيم هجومات وحشية تزعزع أمن و قوة هذه الدول وذلك بتجنيد جزء من الجماهير و من المهاجرات و المهاجرين المتمردين و الناقمين على الامبريالية . وحيث تحدث هذه الهجومات سواء كانت بصفة مباشرة أو غير مباشرة فإن الامبريالية تظل تطبق مبدأ " القتال المنخفض الحدّة " ناشرة عملاءها على الميدان لكي يحيكوا المؤامرات و الدسائس بهدف تعبئة الجماهير ضد الجماهير و ذلك ليحرفوا نضال الجماهير عن هدفه و ليقسموا الجبهة المتحدة المناهضة للامبريالية كما يحدث اليوم في سوريا بين الجماهير الكردية و العربية .
و أينما تقدمت " الدولة الإسلامية " فإن الجماهير تقاتل و تصمد لاسيّما الجماهير الكردية حيث تلعب النساء دورا رياديا على جبهة القتال في كوباني و روجافا ( كردستان السورية ). لكن لا يمكن للجماهير أن تتحرر من الاضطهاد الاجتماعي و القومي إلاّ عن طريق حرب الشعب ، ليس فقط ضد داعش بل أيضا ضد الامبريالية و الأنظمة الرجعية في المنطقة .
إن البرجوازية و مثقفيها المزيفين في القلاع الامبريالية و في الأوساط الثقافية بالبلدان المضطهدة قد احتفلوا بدفن الطبقة العاملة مع ايديولوجيتها التي وضع أسسها المتينة ماركس ، انجلز و لينين و ستالين و ماو تسي تونغ ، لكننا نشهد اليوم في كل بقاع العالم مدّا نضاليا عماليا مقاوما يزعزع أركان القلاع التقليدية لرأس المال و كذلك الصين و البلدان المسماة "صاعدة" .
و في داخل المنظومة الامبريالية نجد بلدانا كبيرة مثل البرازيل و تركيا تشقها صراعات عمالية و فلاّحية قوية و هذا يدل على أن الازدهار الاقتصادي لهذه البلدان الواقعة تحت الهيمنة الامبريالية لم يجعل منها إلا " عملاقا برجلين من صلصال " و أرضا خصبة للثورة . فليس هناك مكان في العالم لم تحتدّ فيه التوترات و الصراع الطبقي ، و في هذا الظرف تصبح حرب الشعب بقيادة الأحزاب الماركسية اللينينية الماوية المرجع الاستراتيجي للنضال التحرري .
إن حرب الشعب في الهند التي تضرب مباشرة أهم قلاع الامبريالية و الرجعية قد أججت حماسا كبيرا لدى الجماهير الثورية في كل أنحاء العالم و أصبحت تمثل عامل تضامن و تكاتف أممي قوي . وهي تواصل مع الحرب الشعبية في الفلبين و البيرو و تركيا تقويض أركان الامبريالية و تمهد الطريق للقضاء على النظام الامبريالي ، نظام الاستغلال و الاضطهاد كما تواصل ضرب القوى الرجعية الاقطاعية من أجل بناء مجتمع جديد و سلطة جديدة .
إن الشيوعيين الماركسيين اللينينيين الماويين في كل بلدان العالم مدعوون لبناء و دعم الأحزاب الشيوعية و ليتحملوا مسؤولياتهم في القيادة و التطوير و يتخلصوا من التوجهات التحريفية و الاستسلامية على شاكلة توجه براشندا في النيبال و أفاكيان في الولايات المتحدة و الخط الانتهازي اليميني بكل أشكاله في البيرو مع تلافي السقوط في ثورجية البرجوازية الصغيرة العقيمة و الدغمائية . ان بناء الأحزاب الشيوعية يجب أن يتمّ في خضمّ لهيب الصراع الطبقي و في علاقة لصيقة بالجماهير و في ارتباط مع متتطلبات النضال الثوري من أجل السلطة .
إن أول ماي 2015 يدعونا إلى رفع العلم الأحمر – علم الشيوعية و الثورة - عاليا و بقوة في كل مظاهرة و في كل نضال ضد الامبريالية ، و التمسّك بهذا الشعار القوي : " يا عمال العالم اتحدوا ".
  • لنتحد من أجل ايقاف الحروب الامبريالية و الرجعية و سحق الامبرياليين و الرجعيين في كل العالم !
  • لنحيي شهداء الشعب و الثورة ولندعم النضال من أجل تحرير السجينات و السجناء السياسيين الشيوعيين و الثوريين !
  • لنضع نصب أعيننا الأممية البروليتارية الحقيقية في النضال البروليتاري و الشعبي من أجل خلق الظروف لتقدم المنظمة الأممية الشيوعية !
  • لندعم حرب الشعب حتى النصر !
  • لنأخذ مستقبلنا الشيوعي بأيدينا !
