Anti-Asian hate is a symptom of intensifying capitalist reaction

See 1 November 2021 —  See you in 2020

Capital can be resilient. Far more resilient than many revolutionaries have anticipated. Marx predicted that communist revolutions would initially come in the countries where the productive forces are most developed. But save for the eastern part of Germany at the cost of a catastrophic war, none of the core imperialist countries have so far undergone such revolutions.

An Australian horror story

1 November 2021 — Information Clearing House

By Jeremy Salt

The Premier of the Australian state of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, has just tabled legislation in parliament which is possibly the most monstrous ever introduced into a country calling itself democratic. Basically it gives Andrews the power to do whatever he wants and whenever he wants it. He has been turning Victoria into a police state for the past year and a half but behind the bland face and earnest manner, the legislation openly stamps him as a totalitarian psychopath.

Migrants Organise! Wow. What a week!

1 November 2021 — MEDACT

Together we are shifting the racist and nationalist tide by refusing to allow our healthcare service to become a tool of hostile immigration enforcement.

The US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is a man in a hurry. The president expects him to produce foreign-policy success stories.

Success stories are desperately needed as post-Afghanistan, the superpower has become laughing stock universally. The trans-Atlantic alliance is seriously disoriented and Russia is on the prowl in the heart of Europe with natural gas to sell. The Iranians are yet to give a date for the resumption of talks on the US’ return to the JCPOA.

The COP26 conference on climate change is discussing an issue which will profoundly affect every person on our planet. Climate change, together with nuclear war, is one of the two issues which can overturn the present basis of human civilisation.
