Sri Lanka: masses erupt in protest at unbearable conditions

Sri Lanka is currently in the throes of the worst economic crisis in its recent history, which yesterday led to protests right outside the President’s residence, and curfews across Colombo, the capital. The country faces bankruptcy. The masses are being tortured by spiralling prices, 13-hour long blackouts, and a lack of basic medicines, cooking gas and food. What is happening in Sri Lanka is not unique to that country. It is only an acute expression of the worldwide crisis of capitalism, that is crushing poorer nations. The sort of social unrest we are seeing in Sri Lanka, we can expect to see all around the world in the period to come.

Он воплощает в себе полнейший тупик и пессимизм буржуазной философии, сопровождающие упадок капиталистического общества.


Los ridículos boicots antirrusos provocan delitos de odio xenófobo

Mientras la gente en todo el mundo ve cómo se desarrolla la guerra en Ucrania, muchos se preguntan: "¿Qué puedo hacer para detenerla?". Siguiendo los pasos de las sanciones gubernamentales, la respuesta ofrecida por los políticos y las organizaciones oficiales ha sido: excluir a los rusos de los eventos internacionales, prohibir los productos rusos y boicotear los negocios rusos.


NATO'nun gerçek rolü ve tarihi

Geçen hafta İngiliz İşçi Partisi (Labour Party) lideri Keir Starmer, Guardian gazetesinde batı emperyalizmini öven yakıcı bir aşk mektubu yayınladı. NATO’ya karşı olan büyük hayranlığı ve kendini komik duruma düşürürcesine yaptığı milliyetçilik gösterisinin temelinde sol hareketlere olan düşmanlığı yatıyor. Yazısında kaleme aldığı her şey baştan sona karmakarışık bir emperyalizm propagandası.
