Canada - OCTOBRE | Le mois du socialisme



En cette année 2017, nous célébrons le centenaire de la révolution d’Octobre, événement historique d’une importance mondiale qui a marqué l’inauguration d’une nouvelle époque, celle des révolutions prolétariennes. En 1917, pour la première fois dans l’histoire de l’humanité, la classe des salariéEs, la classe des persécutéEs, des oppriméEs et des exploitéEs, s’est élevée à la position d’une classe dominante, gagnant par son exemple les prolétaires de tous les pays et ébranlant les assises mêmes de l’impérialisme mondial.
Pendant les trois décennies qui ont suivi, l’URSS a été la preuve matérielle de la possibilité du socialisme. Elle a été la preuve de la supériorité de la planification économique sur l’économie dite de «libre marché», de la propriété collective sur la propriété privée des moyens de production, mettant en question l’existence du capitalisme à l’échelle planétaire et lui infligeant une blessure mortelle dont il ne se remettra jamais. La révolution d’Octobre a aussi ouvert l’ère nouvelle de l’union fraternelle des peuples et de l’affranchissement des nations opprimées sous la bannière de l’internationalisme, reléguant au rang de légendes dépassées toutes les barrières et tous les préjugés nationaux.

India - release Saibaba! info but it is not confermed that the appeal for Saibaba is for 29th september, the date is not already fixed



Appeals Hearing For Jailed Professor G N Saibaba And Co-Defendants Postponed Until September 29th


Nagpur: Following inability of top criminal lawyer Ram Jethmalani and senior counsel Nitya Ramakrishnan to appear, the Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court on Friday adjourned the hearing of criminal appeals filed by Delhi University professor G N Saibaba and others.
The petitioners who also included Vijay and Mahesh Tirki, Hem Mishra, and Pandu Narote challenged Gadchiroli sessions court verdict convicting them on March 7. Vijay was awarded ten years of rigorous imprisonment considering his limited role, others were sentenced to life. A division bench of Justices Vasanti Naik and Murlidhar Giratkar adjourned the hearing till September 29 after the accused sought time to take Jethmalani’s and Ramakrishnan’s dates, according to special public prosecutor Prashant Sathianathan.
On April 5, the division bench of Justices Bhushan Dharmadhikari and Vinay Deshpande had admitted both the appeals for final hearing.
All six accused were convicted under Sections 13, 18, 20, 38 and 39 of Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) along with Section 120B of IPC for criminal conspiracy for aiding and abetting Naxalite activities and waging war against nation. While pronouncing the verdict, Gadchiroli principal district and sessions judge Suryakant Shinde also named dreaded Naxalite Narmada Akka and Ramdar as other accused in the crime and directed the police to trace them. The court examined 23 witnesses that included panch witness and one approver.
The Gadchiroli police based their evidence on a memory chip recovered from Mishra after his arrest from Ballarshah Railway Station on August 22, 2013, with Mahesh and Narote. Data recovered from the hard disk of computer belonging to Saibaba after his arrest proved their role in the Naxalite activities. Rahi and Vijay were arrested on September 2, 2013, while Saibaba was arrested on May 9, 2014, from his home in Delhi.

Charlotteville - solidarity from Germany

Charlottesville/S] Solidarität mit Charlottesville! / Solidarity with Charlottesville!

20.08.17

heatherWochenende stellten sich Tausende AntifaschistInnen dem US-weiten Aufmarsch von Faschisten in Charlottesville entgegen. Die Bilder von erfolgreichen militanten Aktionen gingen ebenso um die Welt, wie die der Tat des Nazis James Alex Fields der mit seinem Auto in Protestierende raste, mindestens 19 von ihnen verletzte und unsere Genossin Heather Heyer ermordete.

Die Ereignisse von Charlottesville zeigen vieles. Sie zeigen wie sehr sich Faschisten bestärkt fühlen, wenn ihre rechte Hetze von etablierten bürgerlichen Parteien aufgegriffen wird. Sie zeigen einmal mehr, dass Staat und Polizei auch im Angesicht von offenem Terror, mitnichten die Faschisten, sondern vielmehr jene, die sich gegen sie stellen als ihre Gegner begreifen und mit allen Mitteln gegen uns vorgehen. Aber sie zeigen auch, dass konsequenter antifaschistischer Widerstand notwendig, legitim und wirkungsvoll
