History of the Bolshevik Party now available in Arabic, with new preface by Alan Woods

The editorial board of the IMT’s Arabic website, marxy.com, is very proud to announce the publication of the Arabic translation of Bolshevism: The Road to Revolution, by Alan Woods, editor of marxist.com. The book is a masterful account of the history of the Bolshevik Party, rich with lessons about how, over years of patient work, it came to lead the Russian masses to power in 1917. Read on for information about an Arabic-language launch event this Sunday, and the author’s preface (in English), which discusses the legacy of the 2011 Arab Revolution.

Iran: revolutionary youth movement endures

26 October marked 40 days since the murder of the Iranian-Kurdish woman, Mahsa Amini, by the regime’s morality police. Being the final day of the traditional Shia mourning period, it was met with massive protests, becoming a new highpoint of the movement, with protests in nearly every major city. In many Kurdish towns, a general strike broke out; across the country, bazaari strikes were held in support of the movement; and in Tehran Metro conductors went on strike in support of the revolutionary youth. 


Gran Bretagna: Revolution Festival 2022 – “Viviamo in tempi entusiasmanti!”

Il capitalismo britannico e il suo sistema politico sono in crisi nera. Truss ha levato le tende con la stessa velocità con cui le aveva piantate. E il suo successore, Rishi Sunak, eredita un partito impaludato in una guerra civile.


Iran: Repression provoziert Gegenreaktion und Rufe nach revolutionärem Generalstreik

Die vierte Woche der landesweiten Protestbewegung im Iran ist angebrochen und die Versuche des Regimes, sie zu unterdrücken, scheinen lediglich eine noch stärkere Aufwiegelung der Massen zu bewirken. Immer neue Schichten schließen sich der Bewegung an. Zur Jugend auf der Straße und an den Universitäten mengen sich nun tausende Schülerinnen und Schüler, Markthändler und wichtige Teile der Arbeiterklasse. Am wichtigsten aber sind eine Reihe von Streiks, die im Herzen der iranischen Wirtschaft – dem Öl- und Petrochemie-Sektor – ausgebrochen sind.
