Between Havana and Buenos Aires: The reasons for Obama’s trip

ENGLISH - NEWS & DOCUMENTS

Obama and Raúl CastroBy Miguel Sorans, writing in El Socialista, Argentina

Many wonder why Obama travels to Argentina on 24 March on the 40th anniversary of the genocidal coup backed by the US. Obama is not interested in having demonstrations or rejections of his visit to Argentina. He is not interested because his visit is part of a political operative in Latin America that has two legs: Cuba and Argentina. The reasons for traveling to Buenos Aires are obvious. Obama wants to support the new reactionary and pro-Yankee government of Mauricio Macri. It is a trip to ratify they will be allies to continue paying the debt and to favour the multinationals and financial capital against the working people.

This is clear and requires no further explanation. But what are the reasons for the trip to Cuba? Answering this question does require a longer explanation. It is not explained with just two sentences. Because, unfortunately, the background of this historic journey is the ratification that Cuba continues to make progress in the process of restoration of capitalism under the leadership of Raul Castro. Obama travels to support this "Cuban" capitalism and to advance with US investments in the island.

March 15 marks five years of the popular uprising against dictatorship of Al-Assad in Syria. Since then, not for a single day have the Syrian people stopped fighting heroically for their freedom against the dictatorship and several invaders.

They were subjected to crushing attacks, including permanent bombings of population centres, as few people in history. There are more than 300,000 dead and millions of refugees in neighbouring countries, hundreds of thousands desperately trying to enter Europe, and millions driven from their cities and homes within Syria itself.

Bernie SandersAs in the rest of the world, new winds are blowing in the political arena of the United States.

Venezuela: Strong defeat and punishment vote against Maduro’s government

ENGLISH - NEWS & DOCUMENTS
On 6 December the government of Nicolas Maduro and the PSUV suffered a heavy political defeat at the hands of the pro-imperialist opposition grouped in the Democratic Unity Roundtable (MUD).

Statement by the Socialism and Freedom Party

On 6 December the government of Nicolas Maduro and the PSUV suffered a heavy political defeat at the hands of the pro-imperialist opposition grouped in the Democratic Unity Roundtable (MUD).

The MUD obtained a qualified majority of two-thirds in the National Assembly (NA) with 112 deputies, while the PSUV won 55 deputies. Chavism has thus lost the majority in the National Assembly, which had held for 16 years.

It was a crushing defeat. The MUD won 7,707,422 votes, representing 56.2 percent, while Chavez won 5,599,025 votes, or 40.8 percent.

The massive vote for the MUD reflects a clear punishment vote of the majority of the people and workers against the growing deterioration of their living standards. It was a vote of rejection of high inflation, the shameful queues, against shortages of basic products, low pay, insecurity, layoffs, and lousy public services. It was a punishment vote against a government that has criminalised protest, persecuted those who fight, laid off thousands of workers of public bodies, ignored collective agreements and systematically violated the autonomy of popular organizations and unions.

We condemn the attack of ISIS in Tunisia!

ENGLISH - NEWS & DOCUMENTS

¡Condenamos el ataque de ISIS en Túnez! Rechazamos las implementaciones represivas del gobierno de Túnez! ¡No al estado de emergencia! No al toque de queda, la prevención a los derechos de huelga, de reunión y de manifestación en protesta!We reject the implementations of state of emergency!

On November 24, ISIS attacked to the capital city of Tunisia once again after its massacres at the Bardo Museum in the capital on March 18 and in Susa on June 26. Aimed at the bus carrying presidential guards, the suicide bomb attack occurred in front of the headquarters of the Democratic Constitutional Rally (RCD), the party of ousted leader Ben Ali, in Mohammed V Avenue, one of the busiest locations in the capital. Twelve people, who were all presidential guards, died and 20 were injured in the attack.

The government has declared state of emergency after the attack, just as it did after the Susa massacre. However, the law is enforced much more strictly this time. As part of the state of emergency, the curfew will be implemented between from 21:00 to 05:00 for one month across the country. The rights to assemble, demonstrate and march are also banned. Moreover, Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) cancelled the general strike of the private sector which was to be held in the capital city on November 25 with the excuse of the need for "national unity".

We repudiate the terrorist attacks of ISIS in Paris!

ENGLISH - NEWS & DOCUMENTS
On the night of 14 November there was a series of bombings in Paris, the capital of France. The victims number about 150 people.On the night of 14 November there was a series of bombings in Paris, the capital of France. The victims number about 150 people. The terrorist attacks were carried out indiscriminately on the defenceless population, killing people in an artistic performance or in a football stadium. A reprehensible and unacceptable criminal action.

The socialists of the IWU-FI repudiate this terrorist action that pollutes and weakens the legitimate cause of the Arab peoples, especially of the Syrian or Palestinian people fighting against imperialism and its reactionary allies like Bashar al-Assad or the Zionist Benjamin Netanyahu. And because, once again, this will be used by French imperialism, by its government of social democrat Hollande, to strengthen the repression on its peoples and its youth.

Diyarbakır, Suruç, Ankara... The massacres continue under the government surveillance!

ENGLISH - NEWS & DOCUMENTS

The bomb blasts at the Ankara train station building minutes before the peace rally which was organized by unions DISK-KESK-TMMOB-TTB*, have killed at least 86 people and injured 186, according to officials.The bomb blasts at the Ankara train station building minutes before the peace rally which was organized by unions DISK-KESK-TMMOB-TTB*, have killed at least 86 people and injured 186, according to officials.

We are facing a despicable attack of which the perpetrators have not yet been explained or claimed. However, the government is responsible for this massacre as well as it is politically responsible for Diyarbakır and Suruc massacres. The Palace and its government which couldn't swallow the results of June 7 elections asking for a re-election and are ready to take any shady act to maintain their power, were unable to "prevent" this attack in the heart of Ankara likewise and ironically they never managed to "enlighten" the massacres in Diyarbakır and Suruc.

Turkey: For disengagement from capitalism and the repressive regime: Constituent assembly and workers-labourers’ government!

ENGLISH - NEWS & DOCUMENTS

Vote for HDP against the dirty war and the presidential regime! For disengagement from capitalism and repressive regime: Constituent assembly and workers-labourers' government!Vote for HDP against the dirty war and the presidential regime!

For disengagement from capitalism and repressive regime: Constituent assembly and workers-labourers' government!

The President Erdogan, who was unable to receive majority of the votes required for the Presidential regime, declared the re-election to be held on November 1 on account of the fact that there was no compromise in consequence of coalition talks. Repeating an election at intervals of 4 months didn't happen in the history of Turkey before. Erdogan expressed that the regime in Turkey had changed with the presidential election by people, which proves the anti-democratic and corrupt core of the regime in Turkey. This declaration also means that a potential change in regime towards the Presidential system can be actualized easily in case AKP receives votes enough to gain "550 local and national members of parliament". However, it is obvious that this change in regime will mean "civil war regime" for peoples of Turkey.
