At the beginning of February the Esquerda Marxista (Marxist Left) group in Brazil held its congress, where they unanimously voted in favour of their affiliation to the International Marxist Tendency. The addition of this important grouping, which gathers within its ranks leaders of the occupied factories, of the Black Socialist Movement, important trade unionists and many revolutionary youth, marks a major milestone in the building of a genuine Marxist International in Latin America and the world.

After 40 days of suffering and struggle, the workers of Flasko (the worker-occupied factory in Sao Paulo, Brazil) managed to re-establish electricity supply to the factory from the CPFL electricity company.

We have received the latest Bulletin of the Occupied Factories in Brazil (in Portuguese and PDF format) dedicated to the struggle to regain control of CIPLA and Interfibra after the judge imposed an administrator and sacked all the delegates to the Factory Councils. Download the bulletin here.
