The Greek elections and the crisis in Europe

Written by Alan Woods and Ben Peck Friday, 16 January 2015

crisis-euro-thOn January 25th Greece will vote in a general election. Syriza is likely to be the party voted to power. This poses a dilemma for the European capitalists as one part of their machine, bourgeois democracy, risks colliding with another, their programme of austerity, which has been visited upon the Greek people for the past five years. This is seen as a serious threat to the plans of the rulers of Europe to solve the economic crisis by an all-out attack on the living standards of the working class.

 

Venezuela: Heinz Dieterich the Prophet of Doom – Or how not to save the Bolivarian Revolution

Written by Alan Woods Friday, 23 January 2015

r2600583502To the degree that the reformist and class collaborationist nature of Heinz Dieterich’s ideas has been exposed, he has met with rejection. In Venezuela his pro-bourgeois views and his close relation with the counterrevolutionary General Raul Baduel discredited him and led to a radical break with Chavez. Recently a scandalous article by him was published in the well-known left-wing website Aporrea. In response to requests from activists in Venezuela, Alan Woods has written a reply.

It was a relaunch of the organisation, and there could be no better time for it! After years of relative calm, the Italian working class is reawakening, and along with it the class struggle.

Heinz Dieterich, el profeta agorero - O cómo no salvar la Revolución Bolivariana

Written by Alan Woods Friday, 23 January 2015

r2600583502El papel de Dieterich y otros como él ha sido el de confundir las ideas de gente de la izquierda en América Latina. En la medida en que el carácter reformista y de colaboración de clase de sus ideas ha quedado al descubierto, ha habido un rechazo generalizado. En Venezuela su punto de vista pro-burgués y su estrecha relación con el general contrarrevolucionario Raúl Baduel le desacreditó y le condujo a una ruptura radical con Chávez. Recientemente, un escandaloso artículo suyo ha sido publicado en el conocido sitio web de izquierda Aporrea. En respuesta a las peticiones de activistas revolucionarios en Venezuela, el camarada Alan ha escrito una respuesta.

 

Estados Unidos: Encarcelación en masa, lucha de masas

Written by Jose Manuel & Liza R. Wednesday, 21 January 2015

En la "tierra de la libertad," varios millones de seres humanos se  consumen en jaulas en el nombre de la ley y el orden. Desde su crecimiento exponencial en las últimas cuatro décadas, no hay otra nación en el planeta que se acerque a la tasa de encarcelamiento de los Estados Unidos. En vez de darles  la ayuda que más necesitan, los trabajadores y los jóvenes que son los más afectados por la pobreza, el desempleo, el deterioro social inherentes al capitalismo, éstos son tratados brutalmente por la policía y traumatizados por las condiciones carcelarias infernales hasta que ya no representan un problema para el sistema.

 

Las elecciones griegas y la crisis en Europa

Written by Alan Woods Tuesday, 20 January 2015

greece-eu-electionsEl 25 de enero se celebran elecciones generales en Grecia. SYRIZA es el gran favorito para ganar estos comicios. Los capitalistas europeos se enfrentan a un dilema, ya que una parte de su maquinaria, la democracia burguesa, corre riesgos de chocar con otra, su programa de austeridad, que el pueblo griego ha sufrido durante los últimos cinco años. Esto es visto como una seria amenaza a los planes de los gobernantes europeos de resolver la crisis económica mediante la destrucción del nivel de vida de la clase obrera.
