ENGLISH - NEWS & DOCUMENTS

Revolución bolivianaBy Miguel Sorans

Is it utopian to fight for workers' governments and socialism? The problem is not the lack of revolutions or struggles. But the subsistence of the reformist apparatuses and the non-overcoming of the crisis of revolutionary leadership.

Heroic Aleppo falls into the hands of genocidal al-Assad

By Miguel Lamas, in El Socialista 337 (organ of Izquierda Socialista, IWU-FI), 13 December 2016

With no supplies or ammunition there was no alternative. Under the agreement, they could leave with their light weapons to the province of Idlib under rebel control, after the civilian population and the infirm were withdrawn. Of course, we cannot be sure that al-Assad and Putin will respect the agreement; particularly with the growth of reported cases about the atrocities and killings being carried out by the pro-Assad Iraqi and Lebanese "militias" executing civilians allegedly collaborating with the rebels.
