[Podcast] The Russian Revolution: the greatest event in history

We are celebrating this year’s anniversary of the greatest event in human history – the Russian Revolution of 1917 – with the launch of the International Marxist Tendency’s brand new podcast, Spectre of Communism. In this special first episode, editor of marxist.com Alan Woods, discusses this great event, when workers and the oppressed, for the first time on the scale of an enormous nation, threw off capitalist rule and took the running of society into their own hands.

10,000 dead in Palestine: bring down the criminals responsible!

The slaughter in Gaza has now reached the grim milestone of 10,000 killed, while more than a million have been displaced with nowhere to go. To give a sense of scale, the Israel Defence Force (IDF) has killed more people in Gaza in one month than the total number of Ukrainian civilians killed in the 21 months since the Ukraine war broke out in February 2022. The latter figure stood at 9,600, according to last month’s estimate.

Tyskland: Ikke længere Europas stabile bolværk

Kapitalismens globale krise har ramt Tyskland særdeles hårdt, hvilket efterlader den tyske herskende klasse i et uløseligt dilemma. Grundlæggende set er den tyske økonomi fuldstændig afhængig af de amerikanske og kinesiske markeder. Derudover er den afhængig af verdenshandlen for adgang til billige råmaterialer. Derfor truer den fortsatte rivalisering mellem de to imperialistiske giganter, USA og Kina, generelt set hele EU’s økonomiske sikkerhed - og i særdeleshed Tysklands.
