Landmark Congress of Marxists in Pakistan: rising to the challenge of a revolutionary epoch

On 13 and 14 March, the Pakistani section of the International Marxist Tendency (IMT), Lal Salaam, held its 6th Congress at the Aiwan-E-Iqbal Center in Lahore.

Grčka: smrtonosni sudar vozova je zločin kapitalizma! Dolje ubice!

Od 28. februara, grčko društvo potresa najsmrtonosnija željeznička nesreća u istoriji zemlje, i jedna od najgorih u evropskoj i svjetskoj istoriji.
