FROM RUSSIAN SOCIALISTS TO AMERICAN COMRADES

In the spirit of genuine internationalism Emancipation & Liberation is posting this appeal from Russian socialist to American comrades, first posted at:- http://anticapitalist.ru

 

FROM RUSSIAN SOCIALISTS TO AMERICAN COMMUNISTS

To our Comrades in the United States of America,

As leftists from Russia, we support the struggle of progressive forces against the growing chauvinism and neoliberalism in the Unites States in the face of the Donald Trump administration. Every day, the Russia Media insists that Trump is Russia’s main ally—or, in fact, an ally of Putin’s regime. However, the Putin regime is based on the power of big capital and bureaucracy, and it is in actuality working against its own people. Any political allies of Putin’s regime are thus enemies of working people of Russia as well. A dangerous alliance of neoliberal and neoconservative forces is emerging worldwide, aimed against the achievements of working class and democratic movements. Numerous military ventures, organized by the reactionary forces in order to strengthen dictatorships and gain excess profits, threaten mankind with war and the establishment of new fascist regimes. Far right actors such as Trump will play a vital role in this trend. We are aware that your fight is not about the substitution of Trump with Clinton, nor is it about the preservation of the ruling system. It is for democracy and social justice. We welcome all leftist, feminist, trade union, and democratic initiatives and groups that are now stepping up and resisting the absolute power of billionaires. Your struggle is ours! Only through solidarity are we, workers of the World, able to combat violence, poverty, and xenophobia and create a new world based on the ideas of equality, freedom, and progress. Long live the working people of the United States of America! Long live the solidarity struggle of all people against inequality and oppression

WHAT DOES TRUMP’S VICTORY SIGNIFY?

– ALLAN ARMSTRONG IN CONVERSATION WITH

ALAN BISSETT, BRIAN HIGGINS, PAUL STEWART AND

JOHN TUMMON

(see short biogs at end)

 

 1. ALLAN ARMSTRONG – 9.11.16

“An even greater leap into fantasy land is the belief that Brexit will provide a progressive example to other member states wanting to break away from the EU…. The first and unfortunately well-known non-UK person to celebrate Brexit was none other than the Right populist US Presidential hopeful, Donald Trump. With typical crassness he chose his new golf course at Turnberry in Scotland to declare his solidarity with Brexit… Another presidential hopeful, Marine Le Pen, of the French Far Right National Front, was the first significant European politician to proclaim her solidarity with Brexit.
