On the result of the elections in Greece

Monday, July 8, 2019
After July 7th elections New Democracy (ND) returned to office with a percentage that gives them absolute majority in the Parliament. This is the result of the reactionary road paved by the anti-grassroots policies that the government of SYRIZA followed during the last years. This government change will continue and deepen the attack against the rights of toilers and the people. This is reinforced by the fact that the bourgeois parties that support and push this attack (ND, SYRIZA, KINAL-the former mighty social-democratic PASOK) gathered all together 80% of the votes, which constitutes a major success of systemic powers in and out of the country. The elections also recorded the establishment of abstention, which, on one hand, enlarges the percentage of the ruling parties, but, on the other, greatly consists a form of manifestation against these anti-grassroots policies followed by all governments during the last years.

‘India is fighting for her soul’: Arundhati Roy on fascism, Modi and being a writer in today’s world

I am truly honored to have been invited by PEN America to deliver this year’s Arthur Miller Freedom to Write Lecture. What better time than this to think together about a place for literature, at this moment when an era that we think we understand – at least vaguely, if not well – is coming to a close.

As the ice caps melt, as oceans heat up, and water tables plunge, as we rip through the delicate web of interdependence that sustains life on earth, as our formidable intelligence leads us to breach the boundaries between humans and machines, and our even more formidable hubris undermines our ability to connect the survival of our planet to our survival as a species, as we replace art with algorithms and stare into a future in which most human beings may not be needed to participate in (or be remunerated for) economic activity – at just such a time we have the steady hands of white supremacists in the White House, new imperialists in China, neo-Nazis once again massing on the streets of Europe, Hindu nationalists in India, and a host of butcher-princes and lesser dictators in other countries to guide us into the Unknown.

Joint statement on the European Parliamentary Election and call for Europe wide boycott

May 2019

The European elections do not belong to the peoples!

They belong to the multinationals and the imperialists!

Abstention and denunciation of the European Union!

The European Parliament election in May will be held at a time when the reactionary nature and role of the European Union (EU) are fully exposed.

The EU operates under the law of the mighty; the powerful imperialist states and monopolies rule and impose their policies and interests.

Clara Zetkin: Fascism

In Fascism, the proletariat is confronted by an extraordinarily dangerous enemy. Fascism is the concentrated expression of the general offensive undertaken by the world bourgeoisie against the proletariat. Its overthrow is therefore an absolute necessity, nay, it is even a question of the every-day existence and of the bread and butter of every ordinary worker. On these grounds the whole of the proletariat must concentrate on the fight against Fascism. It will be much easier for us to defeat Fascism if we clearly and distinctly study its nature. Hitherto there have been extremely vague ideas upon this subject not only among the large masses of the workers, but even among the revolutionary vanguard of the proletariat and the Communists. Hitherto Fascism has been put on a level with the White Terror of Horthy in Hungary. Although the methods of both are similar, in essence they are different. The Horthy Terror was established after the victorious, although shortlived, revolution of the proletariat had been suppressed, and was the expression of vengeance of the bourgeoisie. The ringleaders of the White Terror were a quite small clique of former officers. Fascism, on the contrary, viewed objectively, is not the revenge of the bourgeoisie in retaliation for proletarian aggression against the bourgeoisie, but it is a punishment of the proletariat for failing to carry on the revolution begun in Russia. The Fascist leaders are not a small and exclusive caste; they extend deeply into wide elements of the population.
