In what to many may seem an amazing transformation, the bulk of the old Italian Communist Party, the biggest Communist Party in the West, has fused with a bourgeois party known as the Margherita, to form the Democratic Party. Here we provide the background to how this came about.

On Saturday, September 29, around 2000 workers and youth took part in an anti-racist demonstration in Pavia, south of Milan (Italy), the biggest rally in the small town for many years. In the recent period Rom families, from Romania, have been the victims of an almost pogrom-like atmosphere whipped up by right-wing reactionaries. The local Young Communists and the supporters of FalceMartello were in the forefront of the mobilisation. Here we provide the photos.

The Marxist Tendency in Italy gathered around the journal FalceMartello organised its first ever open air festival in Bologna between June 21st and 24th. It attracted several thousand people and was a success in every sense of the word, financially and politically. Here we provide a brief report of the four days and also some short videos (in Italian).
