Looking at the pictures of the bombed out shell of Aleppo’s buildings or the images of wounded and dead children which have daily filled our screens no-one can fail to be moved. Some may even greet the news of the fall of Aleppo to the forces of the regime and its allies with relief. But the killing and the mayhem will not stop here.

Who were the Grzechists?

Publications: 

A number of conflicting political currents had their beginning in the Communist Workers’ Party of Poland (KPRP). One of the earliest of these were the ‘grzechiści’ (Grzechists) – rallied around Kowalski-Grzech, co-founder of the KPRP. Accused of ‘sectarianism’, ‘dogmatism’, ‘anti-democratism’ or ‘anti-Leninism’, in reality it was the only current within the party which consistently defended the...

Publications: 
People: 

Isis has claimed responsibility for the attack in Berlin. The police are still searching for those responsible. But whatever they find, the scenario of war and terror that has existed for years now will continue to wreak havoc on a capitalist society facing a crisis of profitability and political identity.

The Black Snake – Still in the Pipeline

Publications: 

The "black snake" refers to the end-times tale of the Lakota that when the black snake crosses the land it will mean the final end of their world. It is a powerful metaphor that expresses a truth that from the perspective of the potential for repeated environmental disasters the economic activity of capitalism certainly spells disaster.

Castro’s Legacy

Facts: 
Publications: 
Regions: 

With Castro’s death, the mass media is full once again of the characters and events of more than half a century ago. As usual their approach to reality is often distorted and ideologically split into two opposing versions. The first is centred on the figure of the "Lider Maximo", the "heroic and sincere revolutionary, standard bearer of the liberation of the Third World"; the second is based on...

People: 
Regions: 

Remembering comrade Onorato Damen, who left us on October 14, 1979 we found in a drawer an article that appeared in the journal “Pietre” in 1980: The Leninist Diaspora: Damen and Bordiga. The author, Antonio Valeri, suffered imprisonment alongside Damen in a concentration camp at Istonio Marina, aka Vasto d'Abruzzo; While not a fellow political activist, Valeri – as he himself wrote – wanted to...

Is the Working Class Right Wing?

Publications: 

In the 80s and 90s it was fashionable to say that the working class no longer existed. Only the last remnants were left and they were in rapid decline, the final legacy to a bygone era. · This process began in the mid 70s with restructuring in the factories, with the progressive and inexorable reduction in jobs under the pitiless pressure of the crisis.

From 1923 to Today: The Fight against Racist and Nationalist Attempts to Divide the Working Class

Regions: 
Publications: 

We are printing here two short translations. The first is from the KAPD in 1923. Those with an eye for history will recognise the date as the year of, not only the Nazis’ failed “Beer Hall Putsch” in Munich, but also the year when the German Communist Party adopted National-Bolshevism in an attempt to win over workers who had been seduced by the nationalist extreme right.

US Elections – Never Gamble on the Sanity of the Ruling Class

Publications: 

The recent US elections have shocked the world. The Electoral College victory of Trump over Clinton was unexpected for many.

Fidel Castro’s Death Leaves the Path of History Unchanged

Publications: 
Regions: 

Those dancing in the streets in Miami and those mourning around the world agree on at least one thing on the death of Fidel Castro Ruz. Their common ground is the great lie that Cuba was “socialist”. For the supporters of capitalism, socialism is Stalinism with its lack of freedom and its gulags. For the blindly pro-Castro camp improving education and health care wipes out the memory of all those...

US ELECTIONS: A SURPRISE, YES, BUT NOT COMPLETELY UNEXPECTED

Basics: 
People: 
Publications: 

The arrogant Trump beat the repellent Clinton. The populist of the far-right beat the right-wing technocrat disguised as a progressive leftist. Speaking to the belly and the fear of the American electorate got the better of a cultured representative of the establishment. Populism has triumphed in the stronghold of world capitalism even bettering the other successes of the far right; as in Western...
