Do communists favour violence?

Communists are often depicted by the ruling class as violent individuals who will settle at nothing until society is made to drown in its own blood. It came as no surprise to us, therefore, when Denmark’s largest digital media outlet, BTinterviewing a leading comrade of our Danish section on their historic decision to found a Revolutionary Communist Party – spent the interview trying to get the comrade to admit that they stand for violence.

Ukraine: call for solidarity – repression of Marxist in Mykolaiv Oblast

A local Marxist in the southern Ukrainian city of Pervomaisk, Bogdan Syrotiuk, was arrested by the SBU on 25 April. He is being held in a high security prison in Mykolaiv under poor conditions under charges of treason and aiding the Russian invasion. Some of our comrades have known Bogdan for a number of years, and it is clear that these are made up charges by Ukrainian state security against a known left activist in the area.

¿Los comunistas son partidarios de la violencia?

La clase dominante suele describir a los comunistas como individuos violentos que no se conforman con nada hasta que la sociedad se ahogue en su propia sangre. No nos sorprendió, por tanto, que el medio de comunicación digital más importante de Dinamarca, BT -entrevistando a un camarada dirigente de nuestra sección danesa sobre su decisión histórica de fundar un Partido Comunista Revolucionario- se dedicó a intentar que el camarada admitiera que defendían la violencia.


Vitória histórica do movimento de massas na Caxemira controlada pelo Paquistão

Em 13 de maio, mais de 500 mil pessoas reuniram-se em Muzaffarabad, a capital da “Azad” (“Livre”) Caxemira controlada pelo Paquistão, para exigir eletricidade e farinha de trigo mais baratas. A classe dominante, apesar de ter atacado brutalmente os manifestantes anteriormente, aceitou agora, parcialmente, as exigências das massas. Esta é uma enorme vitória nesta parte da Caxemira, onde as pessoas protestam há mais de um ano por estas demandas. Esta vitória enviou ondas de choque pelos corredores do poder.


مذكرة الاعتقال الدولية: هل سيمثل نتنياهو أمام المحكمة الجنائية الدولية؟

اهتزت وسائل الإعلام العالمية، يوم أمس، بفعل الأخبار المفاجئة التي تفيد بأن المدعي العام للمحكمة الجنائية الدولية، كريم خان، يسعى لاستصدار أوامر اعتقال ضد رئيس الوزراء الإسرائيلي، بنيامين نتنياهو، ووزير الدفاع، يواف غالانت، بتهمة ارتكاب جرائم حرب.


La Nouvelle-Calédonie et la lutte du peuple kanak

La Nouvelle-Calédonie est secouée depuis plusieurs jours par des émeutes qui ont déjà fait quatre morts à ce jour (16 mai). Ce soulèvement est la conséquence des provocations répétées du gouvernement impérialiste français. En 2022, après un référendum sur l’indépendance que le gouvernement Macron avait imposé en violant toutes les promesses faites aux dirigeants indépendantistes, nous avions publié l’article ci-dessous dans lequel nous écrivions : « Le gouvernement français se félicite du résultat, mais le problème n’est absolument pas réglé – et ne manquera pas de ressurgir, tôt ou tard. » Depuis, le gouvernement a avancé à marche forcée pour faire adopter une réforme du corps électoral qui est une véritable provocation pour les Kanaks.
