ENGLISH - NEWS & DOCUMENTS

Out with Russian military intervention! No to the referendum trying to annex Crimea! Neither Russia nor the EU will be a solution for the Ukrainian people! No to the adjustment prepared by the EU-IMF-Obama!Out with Russian military intervention! No to the referendum trying to annex Crimea!

1. After the popular revolt that toppled the reactionary and repressive pro-Russian government of Yanukovych, Russia under the mandate of President Putin, has intervened militarily the Crimea region, under the false pretext of "humanitarian defence" of Russian citizens. The pro Yanukovich regional government has called for a referendum, with the support of Russian troops and paramilitaries, for March 16 in order to annex Crimea to the Russian Federation. There is no humanitarian defence or a fair claim to self-determination, but rather that Putin seeks to divide Ukraine to put a wedge in the process of mass rebellion, to hold its important naval base of its war fleet in Sevastopol, with over 13 thousand soldiers, and defend the business of the Russian mafia entrepreneurs. This is why we call to reject such intervention and the attempt to annex Crimea. There were already demonstrations in Moscow against Russian military intervention that were repressed.

Ukraine: a revolutionary triumph of the masses

ENGLISH - NEWS & DOCUMENTS

With the fall and flight from the country of President Viktor Yanukovych a great revolutionary mass mobilization has triumphedBy Miguel Lamas, International Correspondence magazine, UIT-CI . 4/3/2014

With the fall and flight from the country of President Viktor Yanukovych a great revolutionary mass mobilization has triumphed. The people's mobilization, together with the political crisis, began in November. In the middle of winter, with temperatures 20 degrees below zero, people never left the square and the streets, despite bloody repressive attacks that left hundreds dead and wounded. Now a new political moment opens. Russia intervenes militarily in Crimea.

The demonstrations began repudiating the Yanukovych government's decision to cancel the association agreement with the European Union (EU) and reaching another financial agreement with Russia. The bosses opposition to Yanukovych's government, headed by pro-European former Prime Minister Julia Timoshenko (who was in prison), demanded entry to the EU. Popular sectors supported this because they have illusions that this could improve the catastrophic economic situation and they expect it will be easier to migrate to Western Europe.

What is going on in Venezuela?

ENGLISH - NEWS & DOCUMENTS

En las protestas posteriores al 12 de febrero han muerto seis personas más, se estima que casi doscientas personas han sido heridas de bala y perdigones, la mayoría como resultado de las acciones de los grupos parapoliciales y la GNB

By Simón Rodríguez Porras (Partido Socialismo y Libertad-Venezuela) - 23-2-2014

The images of thousands of protesters on the streets of the main cities in Venezuela, the military deployment, the armed actions of civil groups, the government's denouncements of a coup from one end and the accusations from the patronal opposition leadership of what they consider new evidence of the fact that the political regime is dictatorial on the other have been globally disseminated over the past two weeks. Whoever tries to comprehend the situation we are going through notes that the presentation of the events are so thoroughly intertwined with the propaganda of each disputing faction that it is hard to assume a critical position. It could be said that this same situation itself is not new, 12 years after the coup attempt that inaugurated an acute political polarisation. Nevertheless the distance that separates the current situation from that of 2002 is such that in many aspects it is its antithesis.
