Protestas en Bello Horizonte el 26-6-2013 frente al estadio Mineirao

Millions of Brazilians have won the streets of over 300 cities, making the largest demonstration in the history of this country, the largest, most populous and important in Latin America. Although for two years there has been a significant process of partial struggles of workers, almost no one expected this sudden outburst. The spark that caused the explosion was the increase of 20 cents of Brazilian Real (BRL) in urban transport prices. But obviously this was not the only or the main cause of discontent accumulated.

The increase in transport was canceled in major cities last week, and yet the next day the mobilization was even greater. This mobilization did not have or has a recognized leadership. It was convened largely by young people from Facebook. People in the streets denouncing the corruption of the national government headed by Dilma Rousseff / PT [Workers Party] and the governments of the States (PT, PMDB [Brazilian Democratic Movement Party], PSDB [Brazilian Social Democracy Party], etc.), especially in relation to the pharaonic works for the World Cup, with waste of billions of dollars that will leave no legacy for working people, but allow large deals between FIFA, builders and corrupt politicians.

Statement on Zionist aggression

 

For the fourth time since the beginning of the revolution, the Zionist aviation violated Syrian airspace. These violations are becoming more aggressive. Regardless of all the excuses stated by the Zionist state, these attacks are still violating the land of Syria by the Syrian people's enemy, which continues to occupy part of its territory, as well as the whole of Palestine. With this, the Zionist state would be looking to mix and confuse the public to prop up a very weak government, and it wants po prevent weapons changing hands from an army that for 40 years is not fighting against Israel.

This obvious that the enemy uses the conflict to carry out their raids, because they know that the Syrian authority is not going to. If Zionist aviation, even before the revolution, was run multiple raids with no response from the Syrian government -beyond ridiculous statements-, the lack of a current response demonstrates that the regime continues fearing any confrontation with the Zionist state and does not want a war with Israel. Peace with Israel has been for decades the policy of the Syrian regime: its sole purpose is its own preservation and conservation of an elite that has only impoverished and plundered Syria.

Korea: is a new war possible?

Korea: is a new war possible?

Korea: is a new war possible?

By Miguel Sorans, Izquierda Socialista (UIT-CI), Argentina.

Since a month ago mutual military threats between the government of North Korea versus South Korea and the USA grow. North Korea declared that it is in a 'state of war' and ready to launch missiles if attacked. Military preparations grow. What is the root of the conflict? Is it really possible for a war to start in Southeast Asia?

Few believe that it may lead to an all-out war. Beyond some of the many skirmishes that have taken place in recent years. But neither could it be dismissed completely due to the irresponsible and criminal character of the opponents. On the one hand, an old-style dictatorial Stalinist regime hated by the people, and on the other hand, US imperialism which wants to maintain its role as world policeman at all costs.

60 years ago Stalin died

Potsdam (in the outskirts of Berlin), 1945. There Churchill, Truman and Stalin and agreed on 'spheres of influence' met60 years ago Stalin died

The man who betrayed Leninism and the revolution

By Mercedes Petit, Izquierda Socialista

On March 5, 1953, victim of a brain haemorrhage, died one of the most powerful men of the twentieth century. The USSR and its "sphere of influence" no longer exist. The debate on the role of Joseph Stalin remains fully valid for XXI century revolutionaries.

In 1953, the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics), the largest country in the world, was the second industrial power and prepared to dispute the conquest of the cosmos to the United States. Until then, according to the "official history" of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU) and its agencies, which dominated Eastern Europe, these achievements were due to the work of one man: the "little father" Stalin. Just three years later, the new general secretary of the CPSU, Nikita Khrushchev, issued a "secret report" against Stalin and launched a "de-Stalinization". In both cases, the bureaucracy was lying to the Soviet people and workers of the world to preserve their privileges and coexistence with imperialism.
