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.

Greece: Tsipras's resignation is a manoeuvre to strengthen the pact with the Troika

ENGLISH - NEWS & DOCUMENTS

Por un bloque unitario de la izquierda y los trabajadores  para derrotar al nuevo memorandoFor a unitary block of the left and the workers to defeat the new memorandumo

Statement by the International Workers Unity - Fourth International

On August 20 Alexis Tsipras resigned as Prime Minister of Greece, to force a call to new elections in mid-September. It is a manoeuvre that seeks to overcome the political crisis caused within Syriza by their capitulation to the Troika (IMF, European Union— UE— and the European Central Bank—ECB).

On July 5 the Greek people had said NO to a new memorandum with the troika in the referendum called by Tsipras. A few days after that vote the same Tsipras and his government ignored that outcome. They said YES to the Troika and agreed to a new memorandum which means a worse adjustment than the previous ones. A betrayal in record time.

Istanbul Declaration: Break the siege on the Syrian revolution!

ENGLISH - NEWS & DOCUMENTS

With the people of Syria: down with Bashar, Daesh and the imperialist interventions!With the people of Syria: down with Bashar, Daesh and the imperialist interventions!

Istanbul, 12nd of July 2015

In March 2011, in the midst of the revolutionary wave unfolding in the region, the masses of workers, youth and poor peasants of Syria invaded the streets against the dictatorship of Bashar al-Assad. Assad, in return, responded to these peaceful protests with fierce repression: use of live ammunition, arrests, torture, murder and the launch of explosive barrel bombs and chemical weapons against entire neighborhoods... After four years since the start of the revolution, the population of Syria has already paid a severe price for their fight for freedom: More than 300 thousand people have been killed, of whom %95 were murdered by the Assad forces. The numbers of the injured, arrested and missing are still unknown though it could be at least half a million in total. Moreover, the number of detainees is estimated to be more than 200 thousand, with the fate of most still yet to be discovered. Thousands of towns and villages have been destroyed and more than 11 million people have been forced to leave their homes, including over four million refugees who have sought safety outside the country.

The Greek people said NO to the Troika and the debt

ENGLISH - NEWS & DOCUMENTS

The triumph of the NO in the Greek referendum by nearly 62 percent to 38 percent of the YES, was overwhelming, a great victory for the Greek workers and people. They defeated all the pressures of imperialism, of the Greek bankers and bosses and their scaremongering campaign.The triumph of the NO in the Greek referendum by nearly 62 percent to 38 percent of the YES, was overwhelming, a great victory for the Greek workers and people. They defeated all the pressures of imperialism, of the Greek bankers and bosses and their scaremongering campaign. The dilemma is how the Syriza government will be using this popular victory. Will it take advantage of it to continue mobilising against the impositions of the Troika or will it go towards a new covenant of concessions?

By Miguel Sorans, leader of Izquierda Socialista [Socialist Left] (IWU-FI), Argentina, 7 July 2015

The NO has not been a great political victory of the Greek people, with the NO to new agreements to continue the adjustments. There was a lot of pressure towards the YES. Several polls enlarged the YES. The reality is in plain sight. Again the Greek people expressed at the polls and in the streets their long resistance against the cuts and the memoranda of the Troika. It reaffirmed its struggle of over 30 general strikes and its turn to the left to search for a way out of poverty, mass unemployment and the looting of the country by the IMF and the European Union (EU).
