Final Declaration of the “What Future for Palestine”

Forum held in Rome 20/21 April 2024
The October 7th operation and the battles which have followed have proved that the Palestinian resistance has strengthened its military capacity and achieved broad political unity. All armed groups are now cooperating together from a common base of resistance. The resistance struggles against the Zionist regime which is armed and funded by the United States and other Western countries. Outnumbered and outgunned, the Palestinian resistance has inflicted serious loses to the enemy. The Zionists have been forced to continue operations in Gaza for more than 6 months without achieving their initial or intermediate goals. The Zionist regime has left behind more than 40,000 dead or missing persons, including 14,000 children with over 80,000 seriously wounded. Civilian infrastructure in Gaza … [read more]

On the Genocide of Palestinian People and its Powerful Resistance

8/1/2024 · Stop World War 3 International Peace Initiative
Israel is committing a casebook crime of genocide in Gaza. To be precise, it is continuing and hardening the colonial genocide it had been committing in Palestine for 75 years.
In our era, this crime is comparable only with the systematic extermination of the Iraqi and Afghani people that the U.S. and its allies committed. Genocide is never self-defense. And no legal right of self-defense exists for the imperialist conquerors. The concept is meaningless. The “STOP WW3 Peace Initiative” supports the struggle of the Palestinians against the illegal, neocolonial Israeli entity. Palestine has the right to exist, to be the home of all Palestinians. Palestinians have the right to live in their own country, to be free to move anywhere in it, and to choose their own leadership. Palestinians have the right to resist, to fight against the conquerors of their land. Among the conquerors, no distinction is possible between army personnel and settlers who … [read more]

Address to the World Anti-imperialist Platform

A broad alliance against the descent into the 3rd world war waged by the US empire The last two decades have ben characterised by a gradual loss of consensus by the Washington. They proved unable to win wars, the are crippled by a structural economic crisis and resistance movements and state powers striving for escape their rule across the globe are gaining traction. The once so powerful and all-encompassing neo-liberal globalisation is drawing to a close. In order to keep their supremacy embodied in the monopolar world order Washington embarked on war drive, a kind of revival of aborted neo-con attempts. They pre-emptively unleash war against forces showing signs of insubordination also to teach the others and to avoid a chain reaction. Therefore they have been encircling Russia as … [read more]

Austria curbs basic democratic rights to lash out against Palestine solidarity movement

A series of unprecedented political bans of demonstrations and arrests dismantle historic achievements
13/11/2023 · Wilhelm Langthaler
Austria has been a country known for both: social peace on one side and democratic and social rights on the other being interconnected. That combined with a foreign policy based on the constitutional neutrality which since the accession to the EU has been reduced to a formal remnant (however, with a huge political importance).
Against demonstration bans
Neo-liberalism and its relentless attacks have been undermining this compromise dating back to the 70ies. All phenomena of decomposition of the existing political systems experienced across Western Europe could be observed also in Austria, though maybe with more moderation. The more economic liberalism took a left-liberal cultural face, social opposition assumed right populist forms also employing Islamophobia. The authoritarian Corona regime, supported by the historic left, produced a significant and unprecedented opposition also on the streets. With NATO’s war on Russia the formally neutral country chose to fully take side with the West in flagrant violation of the constitution. A good part of the population opposes this ostensible subordination – a defiance which is being … [read more]

Ceasefire with security guarantees

Odessa opposition leader Albu
Alexey Albu was member of the Ukrainian leftist organisation Borotba and member of the regional parliament of the Odessa oblast before the ultranationalist coup d’état in 2014.
Ceasefire with conditions
He was victim of the Maidanist massacre against the Odessa union building on May 2, 2014, when Nazis killed more than 150 democratic activists with support of the new authorities. He survived wounded and could flee to Lugansk as a political refugee of the civil war. We asked him about his opinion on a ceasefire:   Yes, a ceasefire is a variant of finishing the conflict is possible. I mean to just stop fighting along the frontline. But you should know that nobody will agree with the political status-quo which constitute the roots of the civil war and the military escalation. Because if the Nazi state will survive, it will get new weapons from NATO, new trained fighters, and they will attack us again. So, that means that new war will start but we will be in more difficult … [read more]

Babri Masjid demolition a criminal act

CBI Court verdict must be challenged
1/11/2020 · National Alliance of People's Movements (NAPM)
NAPM Condemns the criminal neglect of the prosecution in the case and complete denial of the findings of the Liberhan Commission
NAPM is shocked and dismayed at the verdict of the CBI Special Court in acquitting all 32 persons accused of being responsible for the demolition of Babri masjid on December 6, 1992. For reasons best known to it, the CBI led a weak prosecution based upon defective evidence, even though the Liberhan Commission after its detailed investigation (1992-2009) pointed to the involvement of senior RSS and BJP leaders, including L K Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti. It is indeed sad commentary for  our democracy that active participants in a movement such as this often say one thing inside Court and the exact opposite outside it and yet go scot-free. The Judgement running in to 2,300 pages then goes at length to say that there was no active conspiracy, … [read more]

Sanctions against Belarus hit Latvia, Lithuania

EU drives Minsk towards Moscow
31/10/2020 · Poligraf_Red – a Marxist group from Minsk
Foreign comrades are asking us to make some comments on the situation with the sanctions imposed by the European Union against Belarus. Here is our answer.
Belarus rail
Different sanctions against Belarus and individual representatives of the Belarusian regime by the EU and the United States are nothing new. In fact, they are being introduced, partially cancelled and reintroduced since the dissolution of the parliament and the adoption of the new constitution in 1996. As a rule, these sanctions are not critical either for the Belarusian economy, or for the Belarusian authorities, or for bilateral relations between the countries. And many have long doubted the effectiveness of such an instrument of pressure on the Belarusian government. The latest package of EU sanctions, according to experts, is also quite soft and, so far, does not pose a serious threat to the economy and the local political regime. Although it must be admitted that in the past few … [read more]

For Karabakh’s self-determination while returning Azery majority territory

A communist view from Moscow
20/10/2020 · Serguei Novikov
"So it would be in the interests of the Azery and Armenian people to recognise the selfdetermination of Karabakh in exchange for some purely Azery territories as well as to guarantee nonaggression and the obligation to act by peaceful means only."
Nagorny Karabakh
The events in Karabakh as well as the anti-Armenian pogroms in the Azery city of Sungait and others -- it was one of the first National conflicts, that broke out yet in the years of Gorbachev's perestroika. The very Karabakh is a territory, that for centuries was populated by both Armenians and Azery people. In the Soviet years it had the status of an autonomous district in the territory of Azerbaijan. This conflict, as well as many others, was based on the objective growth of national self-awareness, mostly that of those nations, that had acquired their literacy, national art, literature and started to comprehend their national role in the Soviet history. As the proletarian internationalism in the CPSU policy got weaker in the last decades of the Soviet period, this National … [read more]

A Belarus Maidan?

Interview with Paul Cabana, representative of Poligraf Red, a Marxist group from Minsk
1/9/2020 · by Wilhelm Langthaler
When militia brutality stopped (mostly as a result of the workers’ protests), the number of workers actively supporting the opposition dwindled a lot.
What do you think of the current street movement in Belarus trying to bring down Lukashenko? The current street movement is the largest we have ever seen in recent history of Belarus. Most of the people involved have no clear understanding of what they really want to achieve, and what is the future they are fighting for. Basically, it all boils down to some vague hope that it is enough to bring down Lukashenko – and everything will be all right. Of course, the people most likely to come to power if the movement wins have a very clear understanding of this future. It is clearly a neo-liberal vision with massive privatization of state property, deindustrialization, “optimization” of the healthcare system etc. It goes without saying that, as leftists, we can’t support these aims. … [read more]

End neo-liberalism

The Covid-19 pandemic has triggered off an “integral world storm” and constitutes a historical turning point. The Pandora’s box has been opened, all the chronic evils of the hyperfinancialized capitalist system have been exposed.
After the EU
[You can sign the call online here, or write a message to] The ghost of the “stagnation of the century”  is hovering above mankind. Along with the decline of neoliberal globalization, we are entering a period of great turbulences and social catastrophes which may offer new opportunities for change. In this context, the risk of a confrontation between those favorable to a popular power and those in favor of an authoritarian regime, may happen. Upheavals will overwhelm the present geopolitical balances, with the risk of a devastating cataclysm between the major powers. Because of its structural weaknesses and its internal contradictions, the European Union will not be able to resist the next world earthquake.

In the face of an imminent threat to his life exacerbated by the COVID-19 virus
4/5/2020 · In the face of an imminent threat to his life exacerbated by the COVID-19 virus
Over the last six years, the health of Dr. G. N. Saibaba, incarcerated in Nagpur Central Jail, has deteriorated alarmingly. Prof. Saibaba is a teacher of English at the University of Delhi and is a human rights activist.
GN Saibaba
Due to post-polio residual paralysis of his lower limbs, he is over ninety percent physically disabled and wheelchair bound. Since incarceration, he has developed severe additional ailments that have resulted in irreparable loss to his health. On May 9th 2014, he was abducted from Delhi by the Maharashtra Police and charged under several sections of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA).  None of the electronic documents supposedly seized from G.N. Saibaba’s house were displayed in the court or tested through any witness or made part of the course of evidence. These electronic documents were directly brought only as part of 313 statement, and not the main course of evidence. The judge rejected all Supreme Court  judgments regarding bringing these documents which … [read more]

Shield the healthcare system and the medical staff now!
Greece: low number of intensive care units per capita
The Covid-19 pandemic stresses the criminal responsibilities of those who have been attacking the public healthcare system and the social state. Ten years of memoranda and neoliberal attacks have created a huge deficit of medical staff and equipment. Today, the neoliberal governments must be held responsible for the epidemic crisis before the society. The provocative support of the private capital, the privatization of public hospitals, the marketization of health, the abandoning and disparagement of the public sector, they all have the signature of the political forces that have governed our country the past years. In these difficult times, everyone admits that the hope for the health of the people lies in a well-equipped and -staffed public healthcare system. The expensive private … [read more]

Of course, the work of recruiting passionate people, active and young, will be enhanced as much as possible, and we see in this development a drive for the revival of leftist ideas in Ukraine. Today, the Union of Left Forces is, in fact, the only active left-wing party in Ukraine; all others either dissolved themselves, were destroyed by the Poroshenko regime, or banned as communist. The party is 11 years old, its goal is very simple -- … [read more]

Criticism of colonialism must continue to be permitted

How does the local council ensure freedom of expression?
Open letter to the Chairman of the Vienna City Council Thomas Reindl and the President of the Vienna Parliament, Ernst Woller
The Vienna City Council has taken a number of unanimous decisions against anti-Semitism. In principle this is to be welcomed. However, the satisfaction is clouded by the fact that there is no resolution on the current aggressive smear campaign against Muslims. What is more, criticism of Israeli colonialism and the oppression of the Palestinian people is to be labelled anti-Semitic and subsequently even stopped. The anti-fascist basic consensus is thus turned against democracy and human rights, which should be equally enjoyed by all. The BDS boycott campaign, launched by Palestinian civil society according to the South African model, which aims to achieve nothing more than compliance with the relevant UN resolutions in a peaceful manner, is thereby placed in the … [read more]

“I did nothing to deserve this”

Letter from Austrian prison by Abu Habel, Palestinian sentenced for life imprisonment based on a phony political trial
In writing these words, I have dug up a grave in my prison cell, and have cut off all communication with life itself -- a man who has spent his entire youth in Israeli dungeons.
Abu Habel father with pic of his minor son he was denied to visit in prison
Graz Karlau, October 19, 2019 So, I communicate to you, all free human beings: I am the prisoner Abdel Karim Mohammed Abu Habel from the Gaza strip in Palestine. My family had to flee from Palestine in the Autumn of 1948. On the morning of black Sunday 20/05/1990 I was born, at the same time as the blood of our Palestinian people was being shed by the Israeli Zionist Forces. I was a young boy, like any other, playing with boys my age, despite the occupation, the killing and the blood; these things that were never bad before the occupation. On 20/07/2000, I was shot in the joint of my left foot by the IOF; I was nine years old, and I still suffer from that injury, to this day. A few years passed, after which we were taken by surprise from an offensive attack by the IOF on … [read more]
