Socialism – Marxism and Ecology: Common Fonts of a Great Transition

by FOSTER John Bellamy

2015-12-05 01 FOSTER John BellamySocialist thought is re-emerging at the forefront of the movement for global ecological and social change. In the face of the planetary emergency, theorists have unearthed a powerful ecological critique of capitalism at the foundations of Marx’s materialist conception of history. This has led to a more comprehensive conception of socialism rooted in Marx’s analysis of the rift in “the universal metabolism of nature” and his vision of sustainable human development. This work resonates with other approaches for understanding and advancing a Great Transition. Such a social and ecological transformation will require a two-step strategy. First, we must mount struggles for radical reforms in the present that challenge the destructive logic of capital. Second, we must build the broad movement to carry out the long revolutionary transition essential for humanity’s continued development and survival.

KYIV: RECIPES OF CURBING THE CRISIS
Review of an international conference

Віталій Дудін, Денис Пілаш

2015-12-01 02 CURBING-THE-CRISISOn the day of the October Revolution, November 7, left-wing academics and activists in Kyiv proved their ability to carry out socially critical activities of international level. The renowned Kyiv Polytechnic Institute (KPI) hosted researchers from Ukraine, France, Great Britain, Russia, Belgium, Germany, and Greece. The“Economic Crisis or Crisis of Neoliberalism? Alternative Development Policy for Ukraine” conference demonstrated a high level of debate against the dominant ideological discourse. Economists, sociologists and trade union activists voiced many pressing  issues. However, the representatives of the Ukrainian government, who would need to hear the raised proposals in order to save the country from the collapse, did not show up at the conference.

Espagne: et si l’audit de la dette commençait par les municipalités?

par  Fátima Martín, Jérôme Duval

2015-12-01 01 No-Debemos- No-PagamosLe 24 mai 2015, lors des élections municipales, des centaines de nouvelles formations, aussi appelées « candidatures d’unité populaire », émergent et raflent les votes dans toute l’Espagne regroupant divers partis politiques parfois appuyés par des mouvements sociaux. Ahora Madrid, Barcelona en Comú, Guanyem, Ganemos... quelles que soient leurs appellations, celles-ci remportent un grand succès pour un changement de politiques fondé sur un processus participatif et transparent. De plus en plus de ces partis de confluence se positionnent en faveur d’un audit citoyen de la dette municipale.

France Returns to the State of Exception –

The discourse of war is already upon us,

but it must be resisted 

by ACHCAR Gilbert*

2015-11-22 01 ACHCAR GilbertFrench President François Hollande’s reaction to the terrorist outrage that struck again at the heart of Paris has been to declare war — just as George W. Bush did in the face of “the mother of all terrorist attacks” that struck the heart of New York.

By doing this, the French president has chosen to ignore the many criticisms of the Bush administration’s choice, even though these expressed the prevailing opinion in France itself at that time. And he did so despite the fact that the disastrous balance sheet of the Bush administration’s “war on terror” well justified its critics. Sigmar Gabriel himself, the German vice-chancellor and head of the Social Democratic Party, brother party of the French Socialists, has declared that talk of war only plays into the hands of ISIS.

“The police state will, legally, prevail over the rule of law” – France’s planned surveillance law: an attack on freedom

by PLENEL Edwy

2015-11-18 05 PLENEL EdwyThe French government is rushing through a bill which will give wide-ranging powers to security and intelligence officials to snoop on the nation’s citizens. The measure, dubbed by some the French version of America’s Patriot Act, will allow spies to tap phones and emails without obtaining permission from judges. It will also allow agents to bug suspects’ homes with microphones and cameras and add covert software to their computers to track every letter and word they type. France’s lower house of Parliament, the National Assembly, will hold its final vote on the draft legislation on May 5th. Though the government has sought to justify the proposed law as a necessary tool in the fight against terrorism, the surveillance bill has met with unanimous opposition from civil liberties groups, administrative bodies and the internet community. Editor-in-chief Edwy Plenel here explains why Mediapart is so passionately opposed to this “wicked” law and urges people to join the public protest against it which is planned for Monday May 4th.

The cruelty of imperialist wars results in the cruelty of terrorism

NPA STATEMENT

2015-11-14 01 NPAThe horrible attacks which took place in Paris on Friday evening, killing 120 people, causing dozens of casualties, this blind violence, provokes revolt and indignation. The NPA shares these feelings and expresses its solidarity with the victims, with their close relations. This tragedy is even worse in that it hit innocent victims, the murderous attacks were aimed at the population.

This contemptible cruelty in central Paris responds to the equally blind and even more fatal violence of the bombings by French planes in Syria following the decisions of François Hollande and his government.

La Relativité, un siècle après sa découverte

par KRIVINE Hubert*

2015-11-06 01 KRIVINE Hubert« Ce que j’admire le plus dans votre art, dit Albert Einstein à Chaplin, c’est son universalité. Vous ne dites pas un mot, et pourtant le monde entier vous comprend. C’est vrai, réplique Chaplin. Mais votre gloire est plus grande encore : le monde entier vous admire, alors que personne ne vous comprend. »

La théorie de la relativité restreinte a maintenant 110 ans et celle de la relativité générale, un siècle. Aussi ce dialogue attribué à Einstein et Chaplin a un peu vieilli : aujourd’hui la théorie de la relativité (restreinte) est enseignée à tous les étudiants en science, ce qui concerne quand même dans le monde quelques millions de personnes.

Last Words – Ultimas palabras: Santiago de Chile, 11 September 1973 

 

Tuesday 11 September 1973, by ALLENDE SALVADOR

2015-10-31 02 AllendeThe Spanish text (reproduced below second part) is the transcript of the last radio broadcast of Chilean President Salvador Allende, made on 11 September 1973, at 9:10 AM, before he killed himself during the US-backed coup that had Augusto Pinochet overthrow his socialist government. The English translation (below, first part) is done by Yoshie Furuhashi.

ALLENDE Salvador: Last Words

Surely, this will be the last opportunity for me to address you. The Air Force has bombed the antennas of Radio Magallanes. My words do not have bitterness but disappointment. May they be a moral punishment for those who have betrayed their oath: soldiers of Chile, titular commanders in chief, Admiral Merino, who has designated himself Commander of the Navy, and Mr. Mendoza, the despicable general who only yesterday pledged his fidelity and loyalty to the Government, and who also has appointed himself Chief of the Carabineros [paramilitary police]. Given these facts, the only thing left for me is to say to workers: I am not going to resign!
