Venezuela: The suspension of the recall referendum, the sharpening of the class struggle and the tasks of the revolutionaries

Written by Marxist Tendency of the PSUV Wednesday, 26 October 2016

Bolivarians taking over parliament - Henry Tesara AVNLast Thursday, the criminal courts of Monagas, Carabobo, Aragua and Apure states, among other states, annulled the collection of the 1% of signatures needed to activate a recall referendum, after they upheld claims of electoral fraud which were brought before them in relation to accusations of forgery and identity theft committed during the process. Such a judgement  means that the final step prior to the invocation of a recall referendum, the collection of the signatures of 20% of the electorate, is automatically suspended. The CNE (National Electoral Council) then proceeded to issue a statement in which the suspension of the collection of signatures was ordered across the country.


Britain: Between a rock and a hard brexit

Written by Josh Holroyd Tuesday, 25 October 2016

Britain EU Dave KellamThe recent hardening of Tory rhetoric over Brexit and the status of migrant workers in Britain has shocked many, prompting some on the left to wonder if we too should advocate immigration controls and others, such as Owen Jones, to fall into a spirit of impotent despair. But aside from being a return to form for Britain’s traditional “Nasty Party”, May’s hard talk reflects a deepening divide within her own party and, if anything, a position of weakness rather than strength.

400 años de la muerte de Shakespeare: un revolucionario en Literatura - III parte

Written by Alan Woods Wednesday, 26 October 2016

Elizabeth I_-_Public_DomainLa época de Shakespeare fue también la época de Maquiavelo. Ese brillante filósofo italiano fue el primer hombre en explicar que la conquista y el mantenimiento del poder político no tienen nada que ver con la moral. El propio Estado es violencia organizada y la toma del poder del Estado sólo puede llevarse a cabo por medios violentos. Los moralistas han criticado al filósofo italiano muy duramente, pero la historia ha demostrado la solidez de su análisis.
