Ezker Marxista and El Militante
organised a speaking tour last week throughout the Basque Country, with
Gerry Rudy and Danny of the IRSP (Irish Republican Socialist Party)
speaking in many Basque working class neighbourhoods, drawing the
lessons of the experiences in Ireland and linking these to the struggle
for national liberation of the Basque Country. The common thread was
the need for the organised working class to take a lead in the struggle
and link it to a socialist perspective.
Speaking at a meeting in solidarity with Venezuela in London, Frances
O'Grady, Deputy General Secretary of the British Trade Union Congress,
made clear the opposition of the TUC on US interference in Venezuela. See the article on the Hands off Venezuela website.
