Activities

CWO Public Meetings on Internationalism: A Balance Sheet

Between the months of January and March 2024, CWO comrades held three public meetings (in Manchester, London and Birmingham) and gave presentations at two other events (an NWBCW Liverpool public meeting and the Sheffield Radical Bookfair). In recognition of the seriousness of the world situation, the topic of discussion at each of these meetings was centred around the drive to war, the meaning of internationalism, and the tasks of revolutionaries.

Yes, Fight and Strike Against War: But Against All Capitalist Factions!

Leaflet distributed by the PCInt, in Italian and English, during the recent protests and strikes about the situation in Palestine.

Welcome to the Revolutionary Internationalist Group as French Affiliate of the Internationalist Communist Tendency

Birth of the Revolutionary Internationalist Group

Everyday we receive the confirmation of what we wrote in issue 22 of Bilan et Perspectives: the renewal of workers’ struggles.(1) In the past few years, the long retreat of over five decades, seems to be approaching its end. This is evident from:

Don't Let Them Deal You a Bad Hand!

Leaflet distributed by Klasbatalo during the croupiers' strike in Montreal.

Internationalism and the War in Ukraine

The Russian invasion of Ukraine is now approaching the two month mark. Like other imperialist conflicts in the past, it has put the internationalist convictions of revolutionaries to the test.

No War but the Class War - A Call for Action
  1. The Russian invasion of Ukraine is no isolated act. It is the beginning of a new period of imperialist competition which threatens more generalised war in a way not seen since 1945.
No to Capitalism's Wars

Against Capitalism, As Always!

Leaflet distributed by the PCInt during the "No Draghi Day" protests in Italy.

News

At least 70,000 workers from 45 factories—including tens of thousands of auto parts and assembly workers at companies that supply GM, Ford and Fiat-Chrysler—have launched a wildcat strike in the US-Mexico border town of Matamoros.

The strike is a rebellion against both the “maquiladora” manufacturing corporations and the pro-company trade unions. Over 1 million workers endure low wages and sweatshop conditions at the 3,000 “maquiladora” factories that line the Mexican side of the border and account for 65 percent of Mexican exports. It looks like it has the potential to escalate.

Security forces stormed student and worker dormitories in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen on Friday night, according to student activists, taking away five university students, three workers in Guangdong province, as well as several employees at a Shenzhen-based labour rights organisation.
