It is not the task of this article to go into any detail of the seizure of power in October 1917. Leon Trotsky has brilliantly captured this event in his History of the Russian Revolution, John Reed in Ten Days that Shook the World and many other pieces, including recent articles from In Defence of Marxism. The fact of the matter is that the resounding slogan of the Bolshevik Party, "All Power to the Soviets!” received an immediate and overwhelming endorsement from the soldiers and working class in virtually every town and city throughout the Russian Empire.

New waves of student protest have been erupting in the universities and colleges of Mexico City. Students in all the major universities in the capital have come out en masse in solidarity after 14 students at UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico) were injured by porros (semi-fascist shock groups) earlier this month.

برطانیہ میں اداروں کو دوبارہ قومیائے جانے کی بحث کے ساتھ (ایک پالیسی جس کا جیرمی کاربن کی لیبر پارٹی نے وعدہ کیا ہے)، محنت کشوں کے کنٹرول اور مینجمنٹ کا خیال بھی دوبارہ سامنے آگیا ہے۔ یہاں تک کہ حزب اختلاف کے چانسلر (Shadow Chancellor) جان میکڈونل نے کہا ہے کہ دوبارہ قومیائی جانے والی کمپنیاں ماضی کی طرح نہیں چلائی جانی چاہیں بلکہ انہیں محنت کشوں کے زیر انتظام چلنا چاہیے۔

Argentina: Solidaridad con los trabajadores de la economía popular y referentes detenidos 


Frente a un nuevo hecho de hostigamiento policial hacia los vendedores ambulantes senegaleses que trabajan a diario en el barrio de Constitución, varios militantes del Movimiento de Trabajadores Excluidos (MTE - CTEP) se interpusieron al abuso policial en defensa de los compañeros de la economía popular. La respuesta de la fuerza de seguridad fue la detención de los trabajadores y los militantes.


A partir de este violento atropello, se organizó una concentración espontánea exigiendo la liberación de los compañeros. Esta protesta social pacífica encontró como única respuesta la represión y el arresto de varios manifestantes. Entre ellos, se encuentran reconocidos referentes de la CTEP como Juan Grabois, Jacqueline Flores y Rafael Klejzler.


Solicitamos visibilización internacional de la antidemocrática respuesta de las fuerzas de seguridad frente al legítimo derecho a la protesta y solidaridad con los compañeros detenidos.

Fourth Canada – United States – Mexico
Trilateral Peace Conference

September 13, 2018 – Moca, Dominican Republic
Final Declaration
The Canadian Peace Congress (CPCon), the U.S. Peace Council (USPC) and the Mexican Movement for Peace and Development (MOMPADE) held their fourth Trilateral Meeting on September 13, 2018 in Moca, Dominican Republic in conjunction with the Hemispheric Peace Conference of the World Peace Council and its affiliates on this continent. Upon the conclusion of their meeting, the delegations of the three organizations issued the following statement:
Our Trilateral Meeting takes place at a time of a serious deterioration of the international situation, marked by the increasingly aggressive actions of U.S. imperialism, with the active support of Canada and its other NATO allies, to interfere in the domestic affairs of other states, to use economic blackmail and threats of aggression, to conspire with regional actors and local oligarchies to carry out ‘regime change’ operations against governments unwilling to submit to imperialist demands, and in some cases to resort to direct military intervention. This aggressive behavior comes together with, and is closely related to, the deepening systemic crisis of capitalism and the ever-worsening effects of climate change and the general degradation of the global environment.

The participants express grave concern that the accelerated drive to militarization, aggression and war threatens the very future of humanity, and call for urgent measures to stop and reverse the arms race, to sharply reduce bloated military budgets and to redirect these funds to peaceful and socially useful purposes to raise wages and living standards, improve social programs and protect our environment. Urgent efforts are required to prevent the modernization of nuclear arsenals, to ban the militarization of outer space, and to move in the direction of general and comprehensive disarmament, including the ratification of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

Our organizations condemn the further expansion of NATO, including the recent addition of Colombia as a “global partner” and its intention to recruit other states in our hemisphere to the NATO camp, which is totally controlled by U.S. imperialism and serves its economic and political interests. The cause of peace can only be advanced through the dissolution of this aggressive military alliance, not through its expansion.
The Trilateral Meeting agrees that the firm foundations of peace must be based on the principles of non-intervention and full respect for the sovereignty, territorial integrity, self-determination and independence of all states, as stipulated in the UN Charter and covenants of international law enacted since the end the World War II.

The participants note that the web of U.S. foreign military bases around the world – including an archipelago of almost 80 foreign bases throughout the Americas – is a direct threat to world peace and undermines the sovereignty of individual states, and we call for the closure of these bases. Our three organizations commit to helping build the Global Campaign Against US/NATO Military Bases, and pledge to help mobilize the largest possible contingents of peace forces from our countries to participate in the International Conference Against US/NATO Military Bases to be held in Dublin, Ireland on November 16-18, 2018.

Our organizations pledge to strengthen our solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela and the Sandinista government in Nicaragua, both of which are under sharp attack by U.S. imperialism, and with Socialist Cuba which continues to endure and advance despite a revitalized blockade by the United States. These are not isolated issues or events, but rather part of a coordinated campaign to undermine progressive governments and movements throughout Latin America, particularly those striving to resist imperialist hegemony, and to defend their national sovereignty and independent path of development. This subversive campaign increasingly relies on judicial and parliamentary maneuvers to remove elected leaders and oust progressive governments from power.

In this regard, our Meeting welcomes the progressive changes in Mexico arising from the recent election results, but warns that the new government could well become the next target of such anti-democratic attacks by imperialism and domestic reactionary forces.

The participants note that the re-negotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) between our three countries has reached a critical stage as the Trump Administration, acting in the interests of U.S. finance capital, seeks to extract concessions from both its northern and southern neighbors. Our organizations consider that the economic relations between our neighboring countries – and related treaties and agreements – must be mutually beneficial for the peoples and economies of our three countries, must serve to improve the wages, working conditions and overall living standards of our peoples, and must protect and enhance our shared natural environment.

Our organizations also express alarm at the rapid growth of racist, anti-immigration tendencies and state policies in our countries, especially marked by the plans of the Trump Administration to step up the deportation of undocumented workers and the completion of a wall along the entire US/Mexican frontier. In our view such positions and policies pander to and help to promote the further rise of xenophobia, national chauvinism, racism and fascism in our societies, backward and dangerous trends which are antithetical and hostile to the cause of peace. We should be building bridges to unite us, not walls to divide us.

While working on all of these related issues over the coming period, our Meeting proposes that our organizations consider three specific campaign initiatives flowing out of this trilateral session:

1. Against Arms Production, the Arms Trade and the Militarization of our Societies – this to include opposition to the military-industrial complexes in our three countries, the export of weapons and military-related goods internationally (including the illicit cross-border traffic of weapons), and the hypocritical “War on Drugs” and militarization of police forces domestically, all of which serve to breed a poisonous ‘cult of militarism’ in our societies. No to Wars at Home or Abroad!

2. Against the Reactionary Wave of Intolerance, Xenophobia and Anti-Immigrant Ideas and State Policies which criminalizes migrant workers, national minorities and racialized communities, and promotes the spread of racism and fascism in our societies. Instead, we must build unity and solidarity among all those who stand for the protection and enhancement of the economic, social and political rights of the people, including the fundamental and inherent rights of the indigenous peoples of our countries.
3. Against Imperialist Interventionism and ‘Regime Change’ and in solidarity with all those peoples and States which are victimized by, or targeted for such imperialist interference and aggression within our hemisphere and around the world.

Finally, the Trilateral Meeting agrees to establish a permanent “continuation” committee, composed of one representative from each of our three organizations, to develop concrete proposals with regard to the three campaign initiatives (outlined above), and to maintain ongoing lines of communication and dialogue among our organizations on all matters of mutual concern and interest.

While all eyes are on the unfolding trade war between China and the United States, another crisis in the world economy is threatening to spin out of control. Since April, Argentina and Turkey have seen their currencies collapse and inflation spiral. Other so-called emerging economies such as Indonesia, India, Brazil and South Africa are also coming under similar pressures.

"La Oposición de Izquierda Internacional se desarrolla en medio de profundas crisis que arrojan en brazos del pesimismo a los pusilánimes y a los miopes. En realidad, estas crisis son absolutamente inevitables. Basta con leer atentamente la correspondencia de Marx y Engels o estudiar seriamente la historia del desarrollo del Partido Bolchevique para comprender qué difícil, complejo y contradictorio es el proceso de formar cuadros revolucionarios".

(اس بات پر کافی شور مچایا جا رہا ہے کہ اسرائیل کی ریاست کے بارے میں کیا کہا جا سکتا ہے اور کیا نہیں۔ خاص طور پر برطانیہ میں جیرمی کاربن کی مبینہ ’’یہود دشمنی ‘‘ کے خلاف زہر آلود مہم چلائی جا رہی ہے ۔ درحقیقت یہ اسرائیل کی فلسطینی لوگوں کے خلاف امتیازی پالیسیوں پر کسی بھی قسم کی تنقید کا گلا گھونٹنے کی کوشش ہے۔ ان حالات کی روشنی میں فرانسسکو میرلی نے نئے قانون کاجائزہ لیا ہے جس میں اسرائیل میں رہنے والے فلسطینیوں کے ساتھ امتیاز برتا گیا ہے اور انہیں باقاعدہ دوسرے درجے کا شہری قرار دے دیا گیا ہے۔)
