Mexico: revolution takes another step forward

By Jorge Martin | Despite the bitter cold, hundreds of thousands once again filled the massive Zocalo Square in the Mexican capital on Monday, November 20th. They were there to participate in the ceremony of the swearing in of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), of the left wing PRD, as the legitimate president of Mexico, in a clear act of rejection of the electoral fraud which robbed him of his victory in the July 2nd presidential elections.

This was the continuation of a protest movement which saw millions take to the streets for a period of three months and which culminated in a National Democratic Convention (CND) on September 16th where more than one million delegates decided not to recognise the official results of the presidential elections and to declare AMLO as the only legitimate president of the country. more...  0 Comments

Venezuela: ¿invasión o falso antiimperialismo?

PCInt. | Tomando como pretexto esta vez la participación de Estados Unidos en el golpe de Estado fallido de 2002, que no tiene otro propósito que el de suscitar la unión nacional entre todas las clases sociales para defender a la «patria», es decir, el Estado y la economía burgueses, la Administración Chávez ha lanzado una campaña sobre el riesgo imaginario de una invasión militar dirigida por el Gran Hermano del Norte; como toda campaña patriótica, nacionalista, chovinista que se precie, esta ha tenido por destinatario al proletariado; aquí se trata, en pocas palabras, de impedir que éste comprenda que sus intereses son diferentes y opuestos a los de las clases burguesas y pequeño-burguesas. La experiencia histórica es formal y categórica: el proletariado no podrá defender sus intereses si no se organiza y lucha sobre bases independientes de clase. Y, la única forma de solidaridad que podrá recibir, será la de sus hermanos en lucha de todos los otros países contra sus propias burguesías. El antiimperialismo proletario no tomará su verdadero vigor sino del combate de clase, cuando éste se reanude dentro de las fortalezas imperialistas, en este caso, la reanudación de la lucha de clase del proletariado norteamericano; lejos y difícil, pero lo más real. more...  1 Comments
