How the KKE uses Marxist terminology to cover its retreat from Marxism

What is the impact of the anti-Marxian theory of the ‘imperialist pyramid’? Joti Brar Subscribe to our  channel This article was originally written for Platform, the organ of the World Anti-imperialist Platform. ***** On the basis of a Marxist analysis of the rapidly escalating imperialist war drive, anti-imperialists of the communist movement came together last year to form the World Anti-imperialist Platform. This was done in order to apply our energies to what has been identified as the most pressing priority facing our movement at this moment: to rally the widest possible forces in support of the struggle against the US-led imperialist bloc – a struggle which has the potential to unleash the next, decisive wave of socialist revolutions ...

A French Nuclear Fairy Tale

BY AXEL MAYER Flamanville 3 has been under construction on the Normandy coast since 2007 and still isn’t operational. (Photo: Morpheus2309 at de.wikipedia) In France, the nuclear industry is in decline and the nuclear company EDF is heavily in debt. At the same time, President Macron is once again promising cheap nuclear power and wants to have new small nuclear power plants built. A small part of the French nuclear industry’s financial problems is to be solved with EU money. In this context, the fairy tale of cheap French nuclear power is happily spread in France and also in Germany and the use of nuclear energy is praised as the miracle weapon in the losing war against nature and the environment. However, the price of electricity in France is only apparently cheap...

France in flames after yet another racist police murder

The divide between French ‘natives’ and ‘immigrants’ is constantly exacerbated in order to keep workers from making common cause against their rulers.

Suffering from lower wages and life opportunities, routinely harrassed and oppressed by police, and ignored by the majority of French trade unions, they perform the useful role of a permanently victimised and vilified underclass in French society – alternately a source of low-wage labour or a useful pool of unemployed workers from which to draw in time of need and to act as a downward pull on wages generally. While the battle over pensio...
