Belgique : La Wallonie contre le CETA : que faire de cette victoire ?

par LCR (Belgique)

2016 10 26 01 LCRLes victoires face au rouleau compresseur néolibéral sont si rares qu’il faut savoir les savourer et les célébrer quand d’aventure elles se présentent. Le Parlement de la Wallonie a refusé de donner à l’Etat belge le feu vert pour la signature du CETA et le gouvernement wallon refuse de céder aux ultimatums, aux menaces et aux pressions émanant de l’Union Européenne, du gouvernement belge, des milieux d’affaire et du gouvernement flamand.

Une victoire de la lutte

C’est indiscutablement une victoire contre la dictature des multinationales et contre l’Union Européenne, ce serviteur zélé de la gouvernance néolibérale. « Il ne peut y avoir de recours démocratique contre les traités européens déjà ratifiés », disait Jean-Claude Juncker en pleine crise grecque. Il ne s’agit pas ici du même type de traité, mais il est clair que le « non au CETA » du Parlement wallon résonne dans toute l’Europe et au-delà comme un refus légitime de s’incliner devant cette tyrannie.

Putine, Trump... – What Can We Learn from Vampires and Idiots?

by BUDRAITSKIS Ilya

2016 10 16 01 BUDRAITSKIS IlyaThe German socialist August Bebel once called anti-Semitism “the socialism of fools.” He had in mind that a fool from the lower classes, indignant at the existing state of things instead of seeking the genuine reasons for his discontent concealed in the capitalist means of production, found a facile but false target in Jews. The result of this fool’s bad decision could prove catastrophic: instead of joining the ranks of socialists, he became their fiercest and most dangerous adversary. “Socialist foolishness” merits neither indulgence nor understanding. It is, moreover, a formidable weapon in the hands of elites, who are wise enough to know how to exploit it.

PSOE: Sánchez dimite, la crisis continúa

Jaime Pastor

2016 01 01 01 Jaime PastorConsumatum est. Desde que, tras el pasado miércoles, con el golpe de silbato de Felipe González y la dimisión del sector afín a Susana Díaz de la Comisión Ejecutiva Federal, se iniciara una ofensiva en todos los planos, con PRISA a la cabeza, contra el todavía Secretario General del PSOE, era difícil pensar que el equipo encabezado por Pedro Sánchez fuera capaz de aguantar la presión sufrida durante la reunión de del Comité Federal. Y, efectivamente, al final ha tenido que tirar la toalla después de una votación a mano alzada en la que su propuesta de Congreso ha sido rechazada por 137 votos contra 105.

Britain: Inside Labour is the heart of the class struggle

by STOWE Andy

2016 09 29 01 STOWE AndyAndy Stowe writes about Jeremy Corbyn’s election victory for leader and the process of change of the Labour Party.

The Labour right, its friends in the press, the commentariat and their allies threw everything they had at Jeremy Corbyn and he trounced them. He and his supporters were accused of antisemitism, intimidation and misogyny on the basis of nothing approximating to evidence and the charges were repeated endlessly throughout the mainstream media. Rarely has such a mendacious and well-resourced disinformation campaign been so utterly rejected by its intended audience. Corbyn increased his share of the vote to 62% from last year when he got 59.5%. He won support from 59% of party members, 70% of registered supporters and 60% of affiliated supporters. And that is despite a purge of many tens of thousands who would have voted for him.

European Union referendum in Britain:

Was Brexit a Working-Class Revolt?

by MOODY Kim

2016 09 05 01 MOODY KimON JUNE 23 the British electorate voted to leave the European Union (EU) by 17,4120,742 (52%) to 16,141,241 (48%) with a high turnout of 72%. The referendum gave voters the simple choice of whether the UK should “Leave” or “Remain” in the EU. It was called by Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron, as a result of pressure from “Eurosceptic” Tory (Conservatives) Members of Parliament (MPs) and the growing right-wing, anti-EU, anti-immigrant United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP, pronounced U-kip).

Although the Conservatives split between Remain and Leave factions, most of the other parties supported Remain. [1] Cameron and most politicians assumed a Remain victory. Instead a significant majority voted for Brexit (Britain + exit), as leaving the EU has become known.

Barroso’s Gold-plated revolving door

by Corporate Europe Observatory

2016 09 01 01 Corporate Europe Observatory 01 Never before has a former European Commission official been criticised as much for their post-EU career as ex-Commission president Barroso since he joined infamous US investment bank Goldman Sachs earlier this summer. Despite its scandalous nature, his move did not come as a complete surprise, given previous revolving door cases involving former EU commissioners. Citizens have every reason to ask if Barroso’s move goes against the public interest: evidence already points towards a gross violation of the EU Treaty. It would only be fair if Barroso was forced to choose between his new position with the banking giant and his generous EU pension.

NOBEL PRIZE IN ECONOMICS AWARDED TO KARL MARX; ACADEMIC ECONOMISTS SHOCKED, ‘DISMAYED.’

Dan La Botz

2016 08 25 01 Nobel[Stockholm - August 21] The Nobel Prize in economics has been awarded posthumously to Karl Marx (1818-1883) for his book Das Kapital, a decision that has shocked and “dismayed” the economic establishment.

Lars Enquist, spokesperson for the committee, said that awarding Marx represented “an attempt to rectify shameful past errors on the part of the bank’s award committee.” He then read a remarkable statement to the media and the public explaining this year’s award:

Pas de “LEXIT” sans “Une autre Europe Possible” - à partir de luttes dans/hors/contre l'UE.

Par Catherine Samary

2016 08 19 01 Catherine SamaryDepuis le traumatisme grec – à la fois diktat néo-colonial de l'euro-groupe et acceptation par Tsipras de s'y soumettre malgré « l'OXI » populaire – la gauche radicale européenne débat de « plans B », sans aucun consensus stratégique ni tactique. Le référendum du Royaume-Uni (RU) en est l'amère illustration sans que la gauche anti-raciste et opposée à l'UE ait les conditions d'expression d'une alternative crédible aux institutions et politiques dominantes, nationales, européennes et internationales. Moins médiatisé que le Brexit, le referendum du 6 avril dernier aux pays-Bas, rejetant l'accord d'association de l'Ukraine avec l'UE illustre honteusement les mêmes « choix » piégés pour la gauche internationaliste.
