Whither the "Arab Spring"?


Sigue la movilización y la voluntad de lucha de las masas. Siendo así, es posible derrotar esta ofensiva de la contrarrevolución

The coup and the brutal repression of the military in Egypt and the release of former dictator Mubarak pose questions in thousands of fighters in the world. Is the process of the Arab Spring ending? To this we must add new criminal actions of Bashar al-Assad in the indefinite Syrian civil war. Is the cycle of successful revolutions that toppled dictators in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya closing? Are we faced with the danger of a bloody counterrevolution triumph, at least in Egypt, imposing a regional retreat to the revolutionary process open in early 2011?

By Miguel Sorans, Leader of the International Workers Union – Fourth International IWU–FI).

There are several facts that show progress of the counter-revolutionary forces and agents of imperialism. In Egypt there has been a counter-revolutionary coup and the dictator Mubarak has managed to get out of jail and move to house arrest.

Repudiation of the repressive slaughter in Egypt! Down with the civilian-military government!


En Egipto se ha producido una masacre a manos de los militares y la policía de la nueva dictadura, instalada en julio.

Statement by the IWU– FI / ILC Coordinating Committee

In Egypt there has been a slaughter at the hands of the military and police of the new dictatorship, installed in July. The violent eviction of the two camps of Egyptian protesters supporting the deposed Islamist President Mohamed Morsi left more than 600 dead and thousands injured. These are the first figures, but may be higher.

This is the bloodiest day in the history of the country. The savage repression ordered and executed by the military-civilian government took place not only in the capital, Cairo, but also in several towns in the interior.

Since the coup of July 3, supporters of the former president Morsi, summoned by the Muslim Brotherhood, mobilized massively permanently and ended up installing various camps claiming for freedom of Morsi and his reinstatement in the government. The army suppressed their protests several times and finally on Wednesday 14 launched a savage repression on the camps in cities and different neighbourhoods of Cairo. Especially in the Cairo's Rabaa al-Adaweya Square where one of their camps was located.

STATEMENT OF THE COORDINATING COMMITTEE IWU-FI/ILS Long live the struggle of the Brazilian people!


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


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.
