On February 22, 2009 the inauguration ceremony of Dr Lal Khan's book Pakistan the Other Story: The 1968-69 Revolution took place in the ancient city and capital of southern Punjab, Multan.

With the help of a number of Indonesian activists, the IMT will be publishing for the first time the Indonesian version of Permanent Revolution (and Results & Prospects). This book will be a very important tool for the Indonesian activists to grasp the essence of Marxism, freed them from Stalinist perversion, and re-orientate their politics toward a revolutionary goal. We therefore appeal to our comrades, supporters, and readers of marxist.com around the world to help us publish this important work of Trotsky in Indonesia by donating money.

The passed year has been one of tumultuous events, and for the International Marxist Tendency (IMT), it has been one of intense activity. We are asking our comrades, supporters and readers of marxist.com around the world to help us continue our work by donating to money this winter.

The World Congress of the International Marxist Tendency met in Barcelona at the end of July. The 350 delegates and visitors could feel that after decades of preparation, of defending the ideas of Marxism against the attacks of the bourgeois, the reformists and revisionists, these are now being vindicated by events. The affiliation of four new sections from Brazil, Iran, El Salvador and Switzerland added to this feeling.
