Russia - Siberia

In Novosibirsk, for a few months since the end of last year, there has been a confrontation between the government and pensioners protesting against the decision of the Governor Yurchenko to abolish unlimited travel on public transport for those in receipt of benefits.

The organiser of the protest actions is an Organizing Committee, formed in the wake of the protest, which consists of active senior citizens, as well as representatives from many political parties and public organizations: AUCPB (N.A. Andreeva), Working Russia, RCWP, Komsomol, "For control and peoples order" and others.

Until now there have been six protests held in front of the residence of the Governor – outside the building of the Novosibisk Government HQ. If the pensioners of December 29, January 21, and February 4 and 21 protests picketed the Government building, then on March 4 and 18 meeting was held followed by protest march to President's Reception in the Siberian Federal District (SFD).

The wave of popular protest is growing day by day. If at first pickets, we managed to gather 200-300 people, then the march on March 18 was attended by already 1500 people. The claimed number of participants on April 1 to march along Krasny Prospect, and a rally at Lenin square - is 3000.

At rallies, people chant: "Yurchenko, out!", "The authorities, which degrade pensioners are a DISGRACE!", "Officials, getting fat at the expense of the elderly are a DISGRACE!", "NO to bourgeois power!" And others. There are many placards. The people are militant-minded. There is an open free microphone – pensioners make speeches, denouncing the current government.

However, the authorities are not going to cancel their decision, and do not want to even listen to the indignant people. Hopes by the pensioners placed on Russian president Medvedev have not been not justified: the people for a second time have marched to the residence of the President Plenipotentiary in the Siberian Federal District, but other than pledges, receive nothing. On April 1, people decided not to march to the residence of the Russian president, but hold a multi- thousand protest marche along Krasny Prospect and to hold a rally at Lenin Square.

The authorities are frantically making attempts at disrupting the people's protest, to behead it. Thus, on February 21, on the eve of the protest, preventive arrests were carried out by police, against one of the organizers of the protests, leader of the Novosibirsk AUCPB organisation Denisyuk Alex, who, allegedly, for failing to pay traffic fines, was jailed for 7 days. Another organizer of the protests - Igor Lobareva, was arrested and detained in a police cell for 2 days, and then after this, his car was torched.

Police and the Centre "E" (department set up for “monitoring and dealing with extremist organisations”) with incredible cynicism in "interviews" with the organizers claim that "we (the police) will not see that there are pensioners at the protest, and will disperse everyone using riot police," and “for the blocking of the road you will have a criminal case on your hands" (the words of Centre "E" operative, Zolotukhin), and that "we will give to pensioners 15 days of jail" (repeated statements by the police colonel Muzalev). The authorities are frothing at the mouth, fearing the people's wrath. To ensure "public order", the police, Centre "E", and the riot police have been given unprecedented powers ("we have to mobilize the entire city police" -, Colonel Muzalev said in court). According to reports from the police department of Novosibirsk, there will be at least two or three police officers to one protesting pensioner at the protests (for details, see the AUCPB article on this issue "FASCIZATION OF THE REGIME IN ACTION" - Ed.).

The mayor of Novosibirsk in every way is impeding the actions, refusing to agree on the venue, offering instead of the Government building to protest, that we go to the local library. Therefore, all actions that are held, in the language of government, are "unauthorized" and "illegal". After each protest action, the police write up reports on "administrative violations" against the organizers, as well as against active young people (which, in addition, upon completion of the protest actions are snatched by Centre "E" operatives). During the agreement on a protest for April 1, the Mayor once again refused, while stating that the police will not be at the protest, and that full responsibility for any excesses will fall onto the organisers (after all this time, people will march on the road along Krasny Prospect and not on the pavement, and will hold a rally right on Lenin square, which would mean blocking the city center) (ie the police will not divert vehicular traffic). One gets the impression that the authorities are preparing a provocation in order to disperse the people, and bring the organizers to “justice” for blocking Krasny Prospect, which can cause not only an administrative penalty (15 days in jail), but also a criminal proceeding (which was the case with the blocking of Narymsky street on May 6, 2008., after which the activists had three criminal cases, allegedly for "assaulting police officers").

Organizers of the rally are trying to defend their right to freedom of assembly, in the court, and even with some success. Thus on March 21, the Central District Court found the City Hall proposal to change the venue as illegal and unjustified, thus recognizing the legitimacy of the protest actions outside the Government building. One of the organizers accused in the blocking of Krasny Prospect on January 21, was acquitted by the magistrate.

Greater and greater number of social movements and political parties are joining the movement (in the Organizing Committee are more than a dozen), and spreading of the struggle. Of special note is the Communist Party of the Russian Federation leadership (Zyuganov) (although their activists are involved in the protest actions), but not wanting to go for confrontation against the authorities, they are carrying out their tokenist duty "protests" at the library, in the quiet and away from the authorities.

With the growth of people's anger - the power fluctuates. A few days ago the authorities announced that at the "end of the quarter, the governor's decision will be modified." The Presidential Plenipotentiary in the Siberian Federal District has promised "support". On April 6, there will be a scheduled meeting of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation under the claim of prosecution of an illegal decision by the governor (Regional Court dismissed the lawsuit).

But the time for appeal has passed. The time has come for the most determined, most daring and most importantly - mass action of the people who will decide the outcome of the struggle (among members of the Organizing Committee, there are people who sow the illusion that, say, the problem will be "solved" by the President or Mr. Putin, so you need to go to their residences and "make appeals with the demands, as well as assure them that if the Mayor does not allow the protest, we must "accept this” and act "within the law," i.e., proposing to push the movement into the mainstream of the CPRF). On April 1, the minimum objective is - to gather 3000 people to pass march with popular anger to the centre of the city and show the authorities the strength of the people - the only way to defend their rights.

The struggle continues! We will not be intimidated! Together - we have the power! Victory will be ours!
Down with the current sell out power of the bourgeoisie!

Statement from the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks (CC AUCPB)

On the night of March 20, 2011 Viktor Ilyukhin died suddenly, a highly talented, Honoured Lawyer of Russia, a scientist, a communist, a patriot of our country, always at the forefront of the struggle against the counterrevolution. He was a Doctor of Law, professor, corresponding member of the International Slavic Academy of Sciences, Education, Arts and Culture, Professor of the International Academy of Information Technology, Full Member (Academician) of the International Academy of Information Processes and Technology. V.I. Ilyukhin was the author of several books, including: The Case of Mikhail Gorbachev (1993), "Leaders and Werewolves" (1993), "Save Russia" (1995), "Yeltsin is Accused" (1999). In the State Duma as a member of the Communist Party faction, he was Deputy Chairman of the Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building. He was Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Security Committee, member of the State Duma anti-corruption commission, member of State Duma on examining the federal budget on defense and national security of Russia. He was Chairman of the All-Russia movement "in support of the army, defence industry and military science." He worked hard to deconstruct falsehoods by the enemies of the Fatherland, upholding the historical truth about our Soviet history. He boldly spoke out against crimes by the supreme authorities, denounced its evils, universal venality, anti-national character. He was an excellent, honest, decent and principled man. The death of Victor Ilyukhin for all of us communists, is a very big loss.

We are shocked by the news of his sudden death from a heart attack.

He was 62 years old. Viktor Ilyukhin was in good physical shape and had a high capacity for work, therefore his death raises many questions, if we take into account his political opposition to the higher authority.

The Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks expresses deep condolences to the families and friends of Viktor Ivanovich. The bright memory of Viktor Ivanovich Ilyukhin will forever remain in our hearts.

On March 22, the funeral of V.I. Ilyukhin took place at the Troekurov cemetery in Moscow.

More than a thousand teachers and students at one private university in the city of Quanzhou, Fujian Province, went on strike from 16 to 19 March in protest against the exploitation of teachers.

Student Chen from the private Yang’en university said that the university administration does not care about the teachers, and everything is decided by the Council of the University. Therefore, all decisions are made in its favour to the detriment of teachers and the university. Teachers are often delayed salaries, the equipment is not updated for the students, although tuition fees are constantly rising.

The university administration has not extended the teachers contracts whose terms of contracts came to an end. Therefore, on March 16, many teachers went on strike in front of the administration building. Later, after learning about it, they were joined by students in solidarity.

22 March – Russia


22.03.2011 15:40
On March 20, at the initiative of the Federation of car owners of Russia (FAR), an All-Russia protest action took place, which was attended by car drivers of nearly 30 cities across the country. Thousands of motorists across the country again took to the streets to demand lower fuel prices, and abolishing of the road tax system. Motorists demanded a change in fuel pricing and the abolishing of the vehicle tax tied to engine size, and a reduction of the excessive profits of oil companies together with a reduction of fuel duty directly affecting the price level at the pumps

Another important demand made, was the complete abolition of the excise tax on petrol and diesel fuel, like it is for socially important goods.

"Petrol and diesel fuels are not luxuries, not like tobacco or alcohol. This is a crucial resource in modern economy. To impose an excise duty on it, is to deliberately inflate the prices for all manufactured products and reduce the rate of economic development of the country” - believe motorists.

The action took place in various forms in nearly 30 cities across the country. In particular, in Krasnoyarsk, at a picket, more than 300 people gathered. Distinctly, at that this time local MPs took part in the action, who are not afraid to talk about the problem with the residents, promising to continue the dialogue in the workplace and beyond. Among the picketers were autoclubs, Association of truckers, departments of of political parties.

At Miasse, the event held was also in the form of a picket. According to the organizers, the rally was the largest of the four previously held protests in the city. Signatures for an appeal in the region have been planned for collection over the next few weeks. It is possible that in April, a rally in support of the demands of the protestors will be organized.

About 300 people attended a rally at a square near the "Ulitsa 1905" tube station in Moscow. The protesters brought banners with slogans: "No to an increase in petrol prices," “We are not heard, while we remain silent," "The People's Garage is deception and blackmail." After the meeting, the FAR activists held a rolling car protest along Zubovsky boulevard to the Vorobyevy Hills. The Moscow authorities did not sanction this action, so activists expected arrests, but the convoy of 50 cars of FAR activists was accompanied by only two police cars. But it did not end without an arrest: at the rally, police detained the coordinator of the “Left Front”, Sergei Udaltsov.

In Kopeisk, a protest held in the form of flash mobs - "Refuel on your last pennies." The action took place at several gas stations, it was attended by about 10 cars.

A rolling car protest was held in St. Petersburg. The motorcade of protesters against unreasonably high prices for petrol, stretching a half mile, on several occasions was forced to make stops. The reason - increased attention to the protestors by the traffic police. The protesters wanted to refer the matter to the city authorities, but the document they took was not taken by the authorities, citing a day off.

In Ufa, a march took place under a loud chorus of empty cans. The march was attended by more than 40 people. At the end of the march a petition was organized to the President of the Republic of Belarus, the Government of the Republic of Belarus and the Federal Government. Further along the streets, a rolling car protest was held. The column was accompanied by a traffic police car, but only as an observer for road safety compliance. There were no incidents. About 30 cars took part in the protest.

In addition, protest action was taken in the following cities: Barnaul, Biisk, Vladivostok (in the form of informational support), Volgograd, Vologda, Vorkuta, Yekaterinburg, Kazan, Kopeysk, Leningrad region, Murmansk, Nizhny Novgorod, Novosibirsk, Orenburg, Penza, Perm, Rostov -na-Donu, Sarov, Tyumen, Ufa, Chelyabinsk, Cherepovets and Yaroslavl.

BY A.A. MAEYEVSKY, Secretary of the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks (CC AUCPB), Editor of the newspaper “Raboche-Krestyanskaya Pravda” (Workers' and Peasants' Truth)

Inside the communist movement, noisy debates and discussions continue on issues concerning the development of modern day China.
Many of the parties that call themselves communist, in particular the Communist Party of Ukraine (CPU), and other parliamentary type parties like it (parties, communist by name and opportunistic, conformist in deeds, well fitted in to the service of the current ruling bourgeois regimes in the former Soviet Union), consider the path of development proposed by Deng Xiaoping and approved by the Plenum of the CPC Central Committee in December 1978, as an exemplary role model and proof of how you can successfully combine the principles of planned socialism with a market economy.
Referring to the example of the Chinese Communist Party, the opportunists want to cover up their betrayal of the cause of the working class, and their rejection of the revolutionary struggle for the victory of Labour over Capital.

On March 18, the day of the Paris Commune, in Krasnoyarsk, a march and rally, organized jointly by the Revolutionary Patriotic Union of Krasnoyare and the Leninist Young Communist League of the Russian Federation (former YCM of the CPRF).

Komsomol members brought in a number of themes, expressing at the same time their protest at the education reforms. A sudden cold snap affected the turnout, but did not chill the enthusiasm of participants. Mainly composed of young people, the column of marchers moved along the pavement of the central streets of the workers’ Leninsky district – a Prospect named after the newspaper "Krasnoyarsk Worker" – and banging empty pots and pans and blowing whistles, symbolizing the near future of students after the abolition of grants. Attempts by the AUCPB (All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks) Bolsheviks to lead the people onto a usual route along the roadway was unsuccessful, and was met with mass fear by leaders of the Zyuganovite CPRF (Communist Party of the Russian Federation) and passiveness of ordinary participants in the march.

At the rally, the final polarization of the speakers occurred - about half of them in their speeches stuck mostly to historical subjects and as just as much colourfully painted the future of the students after completion of the education reforms. But that did not stop everyone from speak out. The representative of the AUCPB N.M. Shafranov emphasised the world-historic significance of the Paris Commune, spoke about the importance of the lessons of the first proletarian revolution and the Communist and workers' movement. The main connecting element rally was the thought, in one form or another, and repeated by many speakers that: the Paris Commune made education accessible to all, the school was separated from the church, like the Soviet government in Russia did, but the current bourgeois power in the Russia is returning education to the level of parochial schools, and making it private fee-paying. In conclusion, the Secretary of Municipal Committee of the CPRF A. Nosnikova read out the demands to Prime Minister Putin to cancel the reform of education, raise salaries for teachers and scholarships for students etc.

At the event, AUCPB newspapers “Hammer and Sickle","Thought", "Revolution", and the journal of RPSK (Russian Comsomol) were actively distributed.

On March 21, the Central District Court continued the examination of a civil case at the request of organizers of the rally on February 4, challenging the illegal actions by the mayor of Novosibirsk, for refusing to agree on the holding of protests outside the government building of Novosibirsk region.
The Court decided: to recognize the action by the Mayor as illegal and the proposal to change the venue of public event unmotivated and unreasonable.

We recall that the mayor's office of Novosibirsk city is denying the organizers of the rights of pensioners to unlimited travel, to hold protests outside Novosibirsk regional government administration building, and offering a platform at the local library instead. 6 protest actions have been held so far (December 29, January 21, February 4, February 21, March 4 and March 18). This trial is the first, and therefore revealing. For other protest actions, in court are petitions from citizens, some of them are already assigned a date for consideration.

At the previous court session of March 15, the Mayor requested the court to postpone the hearing to provide "additional evidence", but at today's meeting, such evidence was not actually presented. What was presented was "information" by the Committee for socio-political relations of the administration, which allegedly says that holding protest events outside the administration building "substantially obstructed the work of the public authorities", the reference being dated 18.04.2011, i.e., a long time has past since the date of agreement on this, (why did they take so long since December to make an official complaint? FB) and nothing in it clarifying what exactly obstructs the work of the administration. The mayor also provided information on the police in Novosibirsk (also dated from 18 March 2011.), in which it "proves" the impossibility of carrying out activities outside the administration building, allegedly because of the need to attract a large number of law enforcement officers, which in turn leads to a "reduction in solving crimes in hot pursuit"... no other "evidence" at the court session was provided by the Mayor.

Organizers of the protest action at the government administration building will intend to defend their constitutional right to freedom of assembly, meetings and processions.

The next rally will be held on April 1 at 12:00 pm: rally at the government administration building, and then march on the road (not the sidewalk) along Krasny Prospect to the Lenin Square. The number of protestors to take part in it should be around 2000 people.

The struggle continues! We will not give up!

On March 15, factory workers at "Yura Corporation in Racha (Serbia) and Sloga union activists, held a protest in front of the Embassy of South Korea in Belgrade. They demanded the reinstatement of six employees dismissed for union activity, and expressed solidarity with unionized workers at "Yura Corporation" in Ivangorod (Kingisepp district of Leningrad region), who are also under severe pressure from the employer.

We recall that on March 6, in Kingisepp a picket took place against the anti-union policy "Yura corporation” in Russia and Serbia, organized by the Inter-regional trade union of automobile industry workers (MPRA). Several dozen workers armed with whistles and megaphones, appealed to the Ambassador of South Korea and the state authorities of Serbia with the demand to curb the South Korean investor, grossly violating national and international legislation.

"At the “Yura plant" what is going on is a monstrous humiliation of workers - citizens of Serbia: the physical, psychological, and sexual - says Zeljko Veselinovic, chairman of the trade union Sloga. - The Labour Inspectorate ordered the return to work of our colleagues, but the leadership of "Yura" refuses to implement this decision."

"They do not accept the decision, on which we must return to work, and violates the laws of the Republic of Serbia, which for them – mean nothing," - said Maria Ilic, deputy chairman of the Sloga union at the "Yura”.

Meanwhile, the sympathies of the local authorities are clearly on the side of the employer. Thus, Mayor of Racha, Dragan Zhivanovich refuses to communicate with the media. In a brief telephone conversation with reporters, TV B92, she said she did not believe the workers of "Yura", and accused journalists of bias: "I spoke with the director Lucas-nam, and he assured me that “Yura" is in compliance with all laws and regulations." The management at "Yura" also refuses to comment on it.

Chairperson of the primary organisation of MPRA at "Yura Corporation RUS” in Ivangorod, Russia, Victor Makhno said that their union strongly supports the struggle of the Serb colleagues:" We protest against the illegal actions of "Yura" against the outbreak of psychological terror against workers who have used their legal right to organize into unions. We support the struggle of our sister union and believe in the victory of law, justice and truth, which is on our side. We are together to do one thing - fight for the interests and rights of workers. "

On 17 March, by the Ministry of Education and Science a protest of students and teachers at the VZFEI was held. Students and teachers at VZFEI (All-Russian Correspondence Financial and Economic Institute) opposed the accession of the Institute to the Financial University of the Russian Government and demanded the holding of free and democratic elections to appoint a new rector of the university. During the event, the protestors chanted "Freedom to VZFEI", "Free elections for a rector" and "Self-determination for universities”.


On 18 March, in Novosibirsk there was another, already the fifth, protest action for the reinstatement of unlimited travel on public transport for pensioners, organized by the committee, "Pensioners - for a decent life" and the movement "Youth - for veterans' rights!" The AUCPB, Trudovovaya Rossiya and other leftist organisations took active participation in it. We recall that governor Yurchenko in the New Year introduced a limit of 30 free trips per month on public transport for per "benefit recipients". This limitation is grossly violating the rights and interests of pensioners, has caused outrage and outcry from both the victims and other residents of Novosibirsk. The action took place like last time (March 4), in the form of a rally outside the regional government building and then marched to Tolokonsky, Presidential Representative in the Siberian Federal District, and was, according to a tradition, not sanctioned by the mayor, who has steadfastly refused to agree to have rallies held outside the government building, proposing instead, a standard septic tank - a deserted area next to the local science library and an even more deserted route for the march down Kirov street of. But protesters want to express their position not in the air, but to the governor himself, and therefore hold their rallies is the administration area and during working hours. Moreover, the movement is to get bigger, therefore the last time, besides the rally under the windows of the governor, the people marched on the sidewalk of the Krasny Prospect to the building of the presidential representative, where they presented their demands to the presidential envoy, former governor of the Novosibirsk, Mr Tolokonsky. The aim of this march was to demand from Tolokonsky an answer and ask about the fulfilling of his promises.

Statement By The Central Committee Of The AUCPB


On the night of March 18, the controlled by the U.S. UN Security Council adopted a resolution authorizing the imposition of a no-fly zone over Libya. This means that from now on, warplanes of Muammar Gaddafi have no right to strike at the "opposition" (in fact: bandits who had seized the government arms warehouses and are leading an armed struggle against the lawful government of the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya). In addition, the UN Security Council resolution calls for "all necessary measures" to protect the civilian population of Libya from the forces of al-Gaddafi (rebels with arms in their hands – is that a civilian population?) This wording actually allows international military intervention to take place.

Participants in the military operation (aggression) in Libya (they claim to be the United States, France, Great Britain, a number of Arab states) in the first stage are to use cruise missiles and combat aircraft to destroy command posts of the Libyan air defence. U.S. Navy ships, such as the aircraft carrier Enterprise and the amphibious assault ship Kearsarge will provide artillery and air support.

10 members voted in the UN Security Council with the necessary nine votes in favour of the resolution proposed by the United States, Britain, France and Lebanon. Five countries abstained from the vote: Russia, China, India, Brazil and Germany.

This resolution unties the hands of the imperialist hawks for aggression against Libya. France and Britain, according to the diplomats of these countries are ready to carry out strikes on the positions of government troops of Muammar Gaddafi.

In turn, officials of the Libyan Government said that the resolution adopted by the U.N. Security Council making air strikes on positions of government troops legitimate, jeopardizes the country's unity and indirectly encourages Libyans to kill each other.
Shaken by crisis, the imperialist world for the sake of renewing its existence, is trying to ignite the fire of world war in different parts of the globe. In Libya, the international gendarme - United States, fighter for "human rights", is attempting to repeat the scenario of the destruction of Yugoslavia, Iraq and Afghanistan. In a unipolar world, which become such because of the dismemberment of the USSR, unfortunately there is no force capable of confronting the criminal policy of the United States – the world dictator, brazenly ignoring the fundamental provisions of international law on the full sovereignty of each independent state.

As you know, in September 1969 after the revolution led by Muammar Gaddafi, in Libya the monarchy was overthrown, the monarchy which helpfully entitled foreign companies to shamelessly plunder Libya and for a song to take away its national wealth - oil. The new revolutionary government after overthrowing the rotten regime, strongly indicated its desire to achieve national independence and the elimination of foreign domination and to implement progressive economic and social transformation. Britain was forced to evacuate their military bases in March 1970 from the territory of Libya and the U.S. - in June 1970.

As a result of the transformations, the Government of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, headed by its leader Gaddafi, put the country's oil resources in the service of the Libyan people. In recent years, Libya has firmly ranked first in terms of human development in Africa and has the highest life expectancy on the continent. This is the most advanced country of all countries on the African continent.

However, the country needed a large number of foreign workers to carry out ambitious plans for economic growth and social development. The Libyan government has provided jobs to hundreds of thousands of foreign workers - Egyptian, Tunisian, Chinese and others. Today, most of them (for good pay) along with a small part of sold out to the US Libyan intellectuals and drug addicted youth have been used by an extensive network of foreign intelligence services (primarily American) as the "opposition" in an attempt to overthrow the regime of Muammar Gaddafi. World imperialism needs Libyan oil, the oil of the highest quality, and gas. The rhetoric of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton about "democracy" and "human rights", are lies and misinformation, propagated by all the foreign media regarding events in Libya, have the same goal - to overthrow the anti-American independent Muammar Gaddafi, and to lay their hands on their wealth of Libya, putting at the head of the country their own loyal puppet. But, as witnesses say, the majority of Libyans support their leader.

Huge amounts of money dumped into the laps of the "opposition" by the West, have allowed the opposition for a time, to establish control over the east of the country and some western areas. However, to capture entire Libya by means of "quick wins" and another "colour revolution" failed. Gaddafi and his entourage were able to mobilize all the loyalist part of the country and launch an offensive against pro-Western forces "insurgents." As a result, the "rebels" were forced out of major refining centres of Libyan oil and the port of Ras Lanuf and Marsa el-Brega, cities Es-Zawiya, Sirte and Adzhdabiya, and also an assault on the third city of Libya, Misurata, was launched and government forces are preparing an operation to free the main centre of the pro-Western rebels - the country's second city - Benghazi.

Seeing that the sweet dream of owning Libyan oil is becoming unattainable, the U.S. pushed through on March 18 this year via the UN Security Council, a resolution, paving the way for predatory attacks on a defiant state. The Italian government has already announced that it is ready to provide military bases to implement the UN Security Council resolution adopted, and the military air base in Sicily, which is used by the 6 th U.S. Navy, the most closely located to Libya, a NATO base, is preparing to conduct military operations ...

The All-Union Communist Party Bolsheviks strongly opposes the impending aggression of NATO forces led by the USA against sovereign Libya.

We fully support with the people of Libya and its leader, Muammar Gaddafi, fully support their just struggle for freedom and independence of their country!

We demand an end to the inhumane preparation of international imperialism, headed by the U.S. of new aggression against Libya now!

Hands Off Libya!

We urge the entire international community, not wishing to burn in the hell of a third world war, to block the path of the imperialist madmen, trying to rekindle the fires of war in North Africa!

On March 13 this year, activists of the AUCPB of Seversky District, in the village of Seversk held a picket near the entrance to the Pushkin park. The purpose of the picket was to express the opinion of participants of a public event on social and political issues, one of which was - the results of the policies of Gorbachev's perestroika.

The date was not chosen by chance. On March 13, 1988 in the newspaper "Soviet Russia" was featured an article N.A. Andreeva, "I cannot give up principles," which laid the foundation for the revival of Bolshevism.

At the picket, along with symbols of the AUCPB, an agitation and political stand was set up, with an appeal to district residents to rise up to fight for their social, economic and political rights, with demands to the government to stop the rise in fuel prices, electricity, land, etc., and to reduce prices for medicines, food and essential goods. Bolshevik newspapers “Workers' and Peasants' Hammer and Sickle ", " Workers and Peasants' Truth ", Youth newspaper of the VMGB "Revolution" were distributed at the picket along with fliers to mark the political event of the day and the aim of picket.

Passers by supported us, saying that such pickets should be organized and to work more with people. Yes, we must rise to the protest.

Mass student protests in California (USA)

15.03.2011 19:28
In Sacramento, the students took to the streets to protest against the reduction of financial support for education. The initiative of the new California governor Jerry Brown, suggests that the University of California and California State University will shortfall from the budget of $ 500 million. The rally took place against the backdrop of a wave of protests against the bill to limit the rights of trade unions.

Governor Jerry Brown decided to cut funding for virtually all spheres of life of the state - from health programs to maintaining public parks. As a result of the reform, a lot of young people can not afford university tuition.

Currently in the U.S., people are also protesting against the law to restrict the rights of trade unions. People are angry that, if the bill is passed, the unions will lose their right to negotiate with the state about the size of grants to employees.

The number of protesters in Wisconsin at the peak of anger and frustration reached 75,000 people. The example was followed by fellow residents of Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee, Idaho, Iowa, and New Jersey. Some commentators have called the wave of protests in the U.S. echoes of Middle Eastern syndrome.

ZIL workers hold pickets for the preservation of plant and salaries

15.03.2011 18:58
On March 14, employees at ZIL held an hour and a half picket at the metro station Avtozavodskaya. Under the monument of factory workers and war veterans, demands were made for the conservation of the plant and payment of two months' salary arrears. Demands were addressed to the Government of Moscow as the principal owner of the company. Representatives of the ZIL trade union and automobile and agricultural machinery workers' unions handed written demands into Moscow City Hall to Sergei Sobyanin.

The former flagship of the domestic automotive industry is experiencing hard times. The process of reform of the enterprise, launched by the Moscow government, aims to reduce the territory from 370 to 70 hectares, modernization of production and new products. ZIL has already developed and prepared for the release of new fire department and municipal vehicles, buses and armored vehicles for special forces, as well as a special model of the limousine for the Russian leadership. However, as is often the case, for the realization of the ideas there is not enough working capital.

"We should receive 80-90 thousand tenge, and we get is twenty thousand, which in Almaty to feed ones family is impossible. What do we do? How to live? And when we were taken on the job, we were promised all the benefits, bonuses, advances, social benefits. We believed them, as the company is state owned and not a private office. In the end we were not even given copies of our employment contracts! We are now on strike and will stand up to the end until our demands are met, "- said the bulldozer driver on behalf of the Kanat.

Journalists of independent media and “Zhanartu” activists, who conducted outreach on the need for enterprises to form their own union cells, came along to the enterprise. If in the near future wages will not be paid, then workers together with the activists of "Kazakhstan 2012" and socialists will plan to take the protest to the office of the company and the Almaty akimat.

DPRK to rejoin 6-party talks

Tuesday 15 March 2011

Pyongyang announced today that it is ready to rejoin six-party talks to advance efforts to denuclearise the Korean peninsula.

A Foreign Ministry spokesman said the government will not attach any conditions to the talks and is willing to discuss its civil uranium enrichment programme.

The DPRK expressed its willingness to return to the negotiating table the day after Aleksei Borodavkin, Russia's Vice-Foreign Minister and its chief representative at the six-party talks, left the country after meeting DPRK Foreign Minister Pak Ui Chun.

Talks involving the two Koreas, the United States, Russia, Japan and China stalled in 2009 when Pyongyang walked out after the UN imposed sanctions on it for conducting nuclear and missile tests.

Last week Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi called on "relevant parties to seize opportunities to resume the talks as soon as possible."

Two Earthquakes

A strong 8.9 on the scale earthquake shook Japan today. The most worrying is that early news reports were talking about thousands dead and missing, figures really unheard of in a developed country where all constructions are quake-proof. They were even talking about a nuclear reactor that was out of control. Hours later, it was informed that four nuclear plants close to the most affected area were under control. There was also information about a tsunami 10 metres high that had the entire Pacific area on tidal wave alert.

The earthquake originated at a depth of 24.4 kilometres and 100 kilometres from the coast. Had it happened at a lesser depth and distance, the consequences would have been more serious.

There was a shift in the earth’s axis. It was the third phenomenon of great intensity occurring in less than two years: Haiti, Chile and Japan. Man cannot be blamed for such tragedies. Every country, surely, will do everything it can to help the hard-working people who were the first to suffer an unnecessary and inhuman nuclear attack.

According to Spain’s Official College of Geologists, the energy released by the earthquake is equivalent to 200 million tons of dynamite.

The most recent information, from AFP, states that the Japanese electric Company, Tokyo Electric Power, informed that according to government instructions, they had released some of the vapour containing radioactive substances…

“We are following the situation. Until the present there is no problem…”

“They also indicated that there were breakdowns related to the cooling of three reactors in a second nearby plant, Fukushima 2.

“The government ordered the evacuation of surrounding areas for a radius of 10 km in the case of the first plant and 3 km in the case of the second one.”

Another earthquake, a political one and potentially more serious, is the one taking place around Libya, and it affects every country, one way or the other.

The drama that country is living through is in full swing and its outcome is still uncertain.

A great hubbub broke out yesterday in the US Senate when James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, stated before the Armed Services Committee that he didn’t believe Gaddafi had any intention of leaving; because of evidence at their disposal, it seems that he is “in this for the long haul”.

He added that Gaddafi has two brigades that “are very loyal”.

He pointed out that the air attacks carried out by the army loyal to Gaddafi “mainly” caused damages on buildings and infrastructure rather than civilian casualties.

Lt. Gen. Ronald Burgess, Director of the Defence Intelligence Agency, at the same hearing before the Senate, said that it seemed Gaddafi had staying power unless some other dynamic changes at this time.

“The opportunity the rebels had at the start of the popular uprising has ‘begun to change’, he assured.

I have no doubt whatsoever that Gaddafi and the Libyan leaders committed an error in trusting Bush and NATO, as can be inferred from what I wrote in my Reflection on the 9th.

Nor do I doubt the intentions of the United States and NATO to intervene militarily in Libya and abort the revolutionary wave shaking the Arab world.

Countries that are opposing NATO intervention and defending the idea of a political solution without foreign intervention harbour the conviction that the Libyan patriots shall defend their Homeland until their dying breath.

Around 100 former soldiers of the National People's Army of GDR (NPA) over the weekend gathered in a cafeteria of Friedrichsfelde zoo in East Berlin to mark the 55 anniversary of the founding of the NPA, according to Tagesspiegel. Many came in grey parade uniform with marks of distinction and ceremonial weapons.

At the event, which was of a confidential nature, a speech was made by former GDR Defense Minister General Heinz Kessler. The cafeteria hall was decorated with flags of the GDR.

Senior management of the Friedrichsfelde zoo on Monday, March 7, hurried to distance themselves from the incident, noting that the cafeteria was run by a private tenant, who failed to warn them about the upcoming event, otherwise it would have been banned.

The café and zoo staff, who knew about the meeting of veterans of the NPA, but did not inform the zoo management were given a warning. The administration Friedrichsfelde zoo noted that the zoo in principle is open to all, but not for the "former pillars of the dictatorship and people who are against the constitutional order."

Berlin's Social Democrats have strongly condemned the incident and urged to avoid this in the future.

Even representatives of the party "The Left" who have repeatedly made calls to stop demonizing the GDR, have distanced themselves from the NPA veterans, saying it would not have anything to do with them.

Vice-Chairman of the Association of Victims of Stalinism (VOS) Ronald Laessig said that the symbolism of the NPA and uniforms should be banned just as Nazi symbols are banned.

For his part, the legal counsel of the Berlin police, Oliver Toelle noted that the NPA is not a banned organization and wearing its uniform can not be regarded as a crime.

Statement by the Mukachevo organization of the AUCPB
Recently, deputies of the Mukachevo city council decided to eliminate the central heating in the city.

Many thousands of families living in apartment buildings, are to be left to their own devices for the next winter to sort out their own heating arrangements in their apartments. And this is called the "European choice", as is constantly being repeated by our statesmen. According to the mayor of Mukachevo, Z.Z. Lendyel, throughout the civilized world, central heating is used (from an interview with local television 2.11), but in Mukachevo, the City Council can not afford it.

People who receive salaries and pensions, on average, about a thousand UAH, simply do not have the money funds to install their central heating system, which costs for a two-bedroom apartment not less than 10 thousand UAH. It is clear that the adoption of the Resolution by the City Council, will raise the cost of installing individual heating systems sharply.

With the rapid growth in food prices and tariffs for housing services, the working people will simply be deprived of their livelihood. And then there's city council’s expressed "concern" for the inhabitants of the city, thus showing that the local authorities (as well as central authorities, Kiev) is so far from the people that it is absolutely indifferent to the needs and aspirations of ordinary people who no longer live like human beings, but are struggling for survival and existence.

In Soviet Ukraine under the USSR, Mukachevites were always, day and night supplied with cold and hot water, heat in the apartments, and the price of one kilowatt of electricity was 4 kopecks and for a for two-bedroom apartment, rents (which were the lowest in the world), together with payment for all public utilities did not exceed 20-30 rubles per month.

Events in Tunisia and Egypt have shown that people’s patience will sooner or later end, and then the rulers will not be saved neither by the police nor the army.
Dear Mukachevites!
How much more we will need to suffer humiliation at the hands of the authorities (from the central one to local one).
Is it time to begin to act as in Tunisia and Egypt?!

On March 2, nearly three thousand residents of the city of Volkhov in Russia came out to protest against impending mass layoffs at the city-forming enterprise Metakhim. Last week, notice of possible layoff were handed to 1400 employees of the enterprise. The total number of staff at of Metakhim and its "daughter" company Pikalyovsky soda is 2500 people. Workers at Metakhim were supported by city residents, labour organizations (including Mining and Metallurgical Union), as well as representatives of the factories in Pikalevo and Boksitogorsk.

Employees fear losing the only source of income, as there is no other work in the city. And dormitory residents - mostly young families are even at risk of losing their housing.

The situation in the city-forming enterprise Metakhim in Volkhov escalated in mid-January, as a supplier of basic raw materials - Apatit (FosAgro ") was not signed to a long-term contract for 2011. Since the beginning of the year, the Volkhov plant has operated at 50% capacity and was forced to buy raw materials at inflated prices. The company Metakhim state that if the March 15 issue of the contract for the supply of raw materials is not resolved, on May 15 the company will lay off about 1,400 workers.

The absurdity of the situation is that it was created completely artificially – as up until now, the still Volkhovsky Metakhim plant was an economically sound enterprise - say workers.

The city authorities and Volkhov district authorities sent a letter to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to help resolve this situation, and after that, the governor of Leningrad region Valery Serdyukov appealed to the leadership of FAS Russia and the Russian Industry and Trade.

Employees of the mine-water-tower "Red October" in Enakievo, Donetsk region of Ukraine threatened to stop work and "flood" the city if they were not paid.

It has been reported by TSN, citing the press service of the Central Committee of the Miners Union of the Coal Industry of Ukraine.

"People are outraged to the limit. How far can you test their patience! Last summer, just a threat to stop the dewatering units forced the Ministry of Coal to remember us and pay four months in salary arrears, and now again the same situation, "- says the chairman of the trade union of the mine.

According to the miners who have not received salaries since the beginning of 2011, the management told them that "there is no money, and not to bother to even wait for it."

"If the water draining complex stops working, water will flood areas in which homes are located, and threaten flooding of existing mines. And then the problem of one state-owned enterprise will become an ecological disaster of urban scale, where people may suffer"- notes the report of the Central Committee of the miners' union.

NATO, war, lies and business

(Taken from CubaDebate)
AS some people know, in September of 1969, Muammar al-Gaddafi, a Bedouin Arab soldier of unusual character and inspired by the ideas of the Egyptian leader Gamal Abdel Nasser, promoted within the heart of the Armed Forces a movement which overthrew King Idris I of Libya, almost a desert country in its totality, with a sparse population, located to the north of Africa between Tunisia and Egypt.
Libya’s significant and valuable energy resources were progressively being discovered.
Born into the heart of a Bedouin community, nomadic desert shepherds in the region of Tripoli, Gaddafi was profoundly anti-colonialist. It is known that a paternal grandfather died fighting against the Italian invaders when Libya was invaded by the latter in 1911. The colonial regime and fascism changed everyone’s lives. It is likewise said that his father was imprisoned before earning his daily bread as an industrial worker.
Even Gaddafi’s adversaries confirm that he stood out for his intelligence as a student; he was expelled from high school for his anti-monarchical activities. He managed to enroll in another school and later to graduate in law at the University of Benghazi, aged 21. He then entered the Benghazi Military College, where he created the Union of Free Officers Movement, subsequently completing his studies in a British military academy.
These antecedents explain the notable influence that he later exercised in Libya and over other political leaders, whether or not they are now for or against Gaddafi.
He initiated his political life with unquestionably revolutionary acts.
In March 1970, in the wake of mass nationalist protests, he achieved the evacuation of British soldiers from the country and, in June, the United States vacated the large airbase close to Tripoli, which was handed over to military instructors from Egypt, a country allied with Libya.
In 1970, a number of Western oil companies and banking societies with the participation of foreign capital were affected by the Revolution. At the end of 1971, the same fate befell the famous British Petroleum. In the agricultural sector all Italian assets were confiscated, and the colonialists and their descendants were expelled from Libya.
State intervention was directed toward the control of the large companies. Production in that country grew to become one of the highest in the Arab world. Gambling was prohibited, as was alcohol consumption. The legal status of women, traditionally limited, was elevated.
The Libyan leader became immersed in extremist theories as much opposed to communism as to capitalism. It was a stage in which Gaddafi devoted himself to theorizing, which would be meaningless to include in this analysis, except to note that the first article of the Constitutional Proclamation of 1969, established the "Socialist" nature of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya.
What I wish to emphasize is that the United States and its NATO allies were never interested in human rights.
The pandemonium that occurred in the Security Council, in the meeting of the Human Rights Council based in Geneva, and in the UN General Assembly in New York, was pure theater.
I can perfectly comprehend the reactions of political leaders embroiled in so many contradictions and sterile debates, given the intrigue of interests and problems which they have to address.
All of us are well aware that status as a permanent member, veto power, the possession of nuclear weapons and more than a few institutions, are sources of privilege and self-interest imposed on humanity by force. One can be in agreement with many of them or not, but never accept them as just or ethical measures.
The empire is now attempting to turn events around to what Gaddafi has done or not done, because it needs to militarily intervene in Libya and deliver a blow to the revolutionary wave unleashed in the Arab world. Through now not a word was said, silence was maintained and business was conducted.
Whether a latent Libyan rebellion was promoted by yankee intelligence agencies or by the errors of Gaddafi himself, it is important that the peoples do not let themselves be deceived, given that, very soon, world opinion will have enough elements to know what to believe.
In my opinion, and as I have expressed since the outset, the plans of the bellicose NATO had to be condemned.
Libya, like many Third World countries, is a member of the Non-Aligned Movement, the Group of 77 and other international organizations, via which relations are established independently of economic and social system.
Briefly: the Revolution in Cuba, inspired by Marxist-Leninist and Martí principles, had triumphed in 1959 at 90 miles from the United States, which imposed the Platt Amendment on us and was the proprietor of our country’s economy.
Almost immediately, the empire promoted against our people dirty warfare, counterrevolutionary gangs, the criminal economic blockade and the mercenary invasion of the Bay of Pigs, guarded by an aircraft carrier and its marines ready to disembark if the mercenary force secured certain objectives.
Barely a year and a half later, it threatened us with the power of its nuclear arsenal. A war of that nature was about to break out.
All the Latin American countries, with the exception of Mexico, took part in the criminal blockade which is still in place, without our country ever surrendering. It is important to recall that for those lacking historical memory.
In January 1986, putting forward the idea that Libya was behind so-called revolutionary terrorism, Reagan ordered the severing of economic and commercial relations with that country.
In March, an aircraft carrier force in the Gulf of Sirte, within what Libya considered its national waters, unleashed attacks which destroyed a number of naval units equipped with rocket launchers and coastal radar systems which that country had acquired in the USSR.
On April 5, a discotheque in West Berlin frequented by U.S. soldiers was the target of a plastic explosives attack, in which three people died, two of them U.S. soldiers, and many people were injured.
Reagan accused Gaddafi and ordered the Air Force to respond. Three squadrons took off from 6th Fleet aircraft carriers and bases in the United Kingdom, and attacked with missiles and bombs seven military targets in Tripoli and Benghazi. Some 40 people died, 15 of them civilians. Warned in advance of the bombardments, Gaddafi gathered together his family and was leaving his residence located in the Bab Al Aziziya military complex south of the capital. The evacuation had not been completed when a missile directly hit the residence, his daughter Hanna died and another two of his children were wounded. That act was widely rejected; the UN General Assembly passed a resolution of condemnation given what was a violation of the UN Charter and international law. The Non-Aligned Movement, the Arab League and the OAU did likewise in energetic terms.
On December 21, 1988, a Pan Am Boeing 747 flying from London to New York disintegrated in full flight when a bomb exploded aboard, the wreckage fell on the locality of Lockerbie and the tragedy cost the lives of 270 people of 21 nationalities.
Initially, the United States suspected Iran, in reprisal for the death of 290 people when an Airbus belonging to its state line was brought down. According to the yankees, investigations implicated two Libyan intelligence agents. Similar accusations against Libya were made in the case of the French airline on the Brazzaville-N’Djamena-Paris route, implicating Libyan officials whom Gaddafi refused to extradite for acts that he categorically denied.
A sinister legend was fabricated against him, with the participation of Reagan and Bush Senior.
From 1975 to the final stage of the Regan administration, Cuba dedicated itself to its internationalist duties in Angola and other African nations. We were aware of the conflicts developing in Libya or around her via readings and testimonies from people closely linked to that country and the Arab world, as well as impressions we retained from many figures in different countries with whom we had contact during those years.
Many known African leaders with whom Gaddafi maintained close relations made efforts to find a solution to the tense relations between Libya and the United Kingdom.
The Security Council had imposed sanctions on Libya which began to be overcome when Gaddafi agreed to the trial, under specific conditions, of the two men accused of the plane sabotage over Scotland.
Libyan delegations began to be invited to inter-European meetings. In July 1999 London initiated the reestablishment of full diplomatic relations with Libya after some additional concessions.
In September of that year, European Union ministers agreed to revoke the restrictive trade measures imposed in 1992.
On December 2, Massimo D’Alema, the Italian prime minister, made the first visit to Libya by a European head of government.
With the disappearance of the USSR and the European socialist bloc, Gaddafi decided to accept the demands of the United States and NATO.
When I visited Libya in May 2001, he showed me the ruins left by the treacherous attack during which Reagan murdered his daughter and almost exterminated his entire family.
In early 2002, the State Department announced that diplomatic talks between the United States and Libya were underway.
In May, Libya was once again included on the list of states sponsoring terrorism although, in January, President George W. Bush had not mentioned the African country in his famous speech on members of the "axis of evil."
At the beginning of 2003, in accordance with the economic agreement on compensation reached between Libya and the plaintiffs, the United Kingdom and France, the UN Security Council lifted its 1992 sanctions against Libya.
Before the end of 2003, Bush and Tony Blair reported an agreement with Libya, which had submitted documentation to British and U.S. intelligence experts about conventional weapons programs and ballistic missiles with a range of more than 300 kilometers. Officials from both countries had already visited a number of installations. It was the result of many months of conversation between Tripoli and Washington, as Bush himself revealed.
Gaddafi kept his disarmament promises. Within five months Libya handed over the five units of Scud-C missiles with a range of 800 km and hundreds of Scud-B which have a range exceeding the 300 kilometers of defensive short-range missiles.
As of October, 2002, a marathon of visits to Tripoli began: Berlusconi, in October 2002; José María Aznar, in September 2003; Berlusconi again in February, August and October of 2004; Blair, in March of 2004; the German Schröeder, in October of that year; Jacques Chirac, November 2004. Everybody happy. Money talks.
Gaddafi toured Europe triumphantly. He was received in Brussels in April of 2004 by Romano Prodi, president of the European Commission; in August of that year the Libyan leader invited Bush to visit his country; Exxon Mobil, Chevron, Texaco and Conoco Philips established renewed oil extraction operations through joint ventures.
In May of 2006, the United States announced the removal of Libya from its list of nations harboring terrorists and established full diplomatic relations.
In 2006 and 2007, France and the U.S. signed accords for cooperation in nuclear development for peaceful ends; in May, 2007, Blair returned to visit Gaddafi in Sirte. British Petroleum signed a contract it described as "enormously important," for the exploration of gas fields.
In December of 2007, Gaddafi made two trips to France to sign military and civilian equipment contracts for 10 billion euros, and to Spain where he met with President José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero. Contracts worth millions were signed with important NATO countries.
What has now brought on the precipitous withdrawal of U.S. and other NATO members' embassies?
It all seems extremely strange.
George W. Bush, father of the stupid anti-terrorist war, said on September 20, 2011 to west Point cadets, "Our security will require … the military you will lead, a military that must be ready to strike at a moment's notice in any dark corner of the world. … to be ready for preemptive action when necessary to defend our liberty and to defend our lives.
"We must root out terrorist cells in 60 countries or more … with our friends and allies, we have to stop their proliferation and confront regimes which harbor or support terrorism, as is required in each case."
What might Obama think of that speech?
What sanctions will the Security Council impose on those who have killed more than a million civilians in Iraq and those who everyday are murdering men, women and children in Afghanistan, where just recently the angry population took to the streets to protest the massacre of innocent children?
An AFP dispatch from Kabul, dated today, March 9, reveals, "Last year was the most lethal for civilians in the nine-year war between the Taliban and international forces in Afghanistan, with almost 2,800 deaths, 15% more than in 2009, a United Nations report indicated on Wednesday, underlining the human cost of the conflict for the population.
"… The Taliban insurrection has intensified and gained ground in these last few years, with guerrilla actions beyond its traditional bastions in the South and East.
"At exactly 2,777, the number of civilian deaths in 2010 increased by 15% as compared to 2009," the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan annual report indicated.
"On March 3, President Barack Obama expressed his profound condolences to the Afghan people for the nine children killed, as did U.S. General David Petraeus, commander in chief of the ISAF and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.
"… The UNAMA report emphasizes that the number of civilian deaths is four times greater than the number of international forces soldiers killed in combat during the same year.
"So far, 2010 has been the most deadly for foreign soldiers in the nine years of war, with 711 dead, confirming that the Taliban's guerilla war has intensified despite the deployment of 30,000 U.S. reinforcements last year."
Over the course of 10 days, in Geneva and in the United Nations, more than 150 speeches were delivered about violations of human rights, which were repeated million of times on television, radio, Internet and in the written press.
Cuba's Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez, in his remarks March 1, 2011 before Foreign Relations ministers in Geneva, said:
"Humanity's conscience is repulsed by the deaths of innocent people under any circumstances, anyplace. Cuba fully shares the worldwide concern for the loss of civilian lives in Libya and hopes that its people are able to reach a peaceful and sovereign solution to the civil war occurring there, with no foreign interference, and guarantee the integrity of that nation."
Some of the final paragraphs of his speech were scathing.
"If the essential human right is the right to life, will the Council be ready to suspend the membership of states that unleash war?
"Will it suspend states which finance and supply military aid utilized by recipient states for mass, flagrant and systematic violations of human rights and attacks on the civilian population, like those taking place in Palestine?
"Will it apply measures to powerful countries which are perpetuating extra-judicial executions in the territory of other states with the use of high technology, such as smart bombs and drone aircraft?
"What will happen with states which accept secret illegal prisons in their territories, facilitate the transit of secret flights with kidnapped persons aboard, or participate in acts of torture?
We fully share the valiant position of the Bolivarian leader Hugo Chávez and the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA).
We are against the internal war in Libya, in favor of immediate peace and respect for the lives and rights of all citizens, without foreign intervention, which would only serve to prolong the conflict and NATO interests.

We all watched with great interest the developments in Tunisia, then in Egypt and other countries of North Africa and the Mediterranean.
First, the people rebelled in Tunisia. Mass thousands of demonstrations, which lasted almost a month, have shaken the country. Tunisian President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali on January 14 had fled to Saudi Arabia. The people celebrated their victory.
January 25 started mass protests of the people in Egypt. Tens of thousands of protesters gathered on the central Tahrir Square (Liberation) in Cairo, the streets and squares of other cities. The people's protest lasted 18 days and, finally, the protesters had their way – on February 11, Egyptian President Hosni Mubark renounced his post. The people rejoiced and exulted their victory.
The social cause of these protests are poverty, unemployment, hopelessness and despair of the masses.
Tunisia. December 17 Mohamed Bouaziz, the young merchant from the small town of Sidi Bou Said tried to end his life by self-immolation. Having a university education, he spent 5 years looking, but could not find work, except street trading vegetables. On the eve of the police took away his goods because of the lack of a license, depriving him of a livelihood. On January 4, Mohammed Bouaziz died. On December 22 another unemployed 22-year-old Hussein Nagi Felhi committed suicide by climbing on the power line and holding the high-voltage cable. Before his death, he cried out: "No to poverty! No to unemployment!”
In solidarity, thousands of young people took to the streets.
Tunisia is a young country, with more than half its population under the age of 30. Youth unemployment stands at 50%.Without work there is no future, so the first thing demanded of the authorities from protesting youth is work. The authorities responded to the demands of young people first, with police batons and tear gas, then bullets. But when people have nothing to lose, violence and repression cause the opposite effect. The protest began in the provinces, but the more people became victims and wounded, the more they covered the country, and reached the capital. To the slogans of social nature were added and political ones: against the corrupt regime of Ben Ali and the Trabelsi clan, for political freedom.
Ben Ali ruled the country since November 1987, declaring its aim "to build in Tunis a prosperous, open and peaceful society based on justice and tolerance." But it was the usual promise of bourgeois politics, a promise that is given to the people, when a politician eager for power, and which they immediately forget after they get into power.
The family of the president and his wife Leila Trabelsi privatized the economy and politics. Leila Trabelsi was called the Empress by Tunisians. She and her family control over all key enterprise: from the land and banks to telephone companies and Internet providers. Belhassen, the elder brother of the wife of President, is one of the richest people in the country, owns the airline and is the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Bank of Tunisia, the most profitable bank in the country. Mohammed Sahr, the 30-year-old son in law of the ousted President is involved in trading of motor vehicles and real estate, agriculture, finance, media and owns a travel agency.
The global financial crisis has only accelerated the process of polarization of Tunisian society. Tunisia's economy is totally dependent on external market conditions and foreign investment. And when as a result of the crisis there was nothing to patch up the social holes, the situation exploded.
After news of the departure of Ben Ali of Tunisia, the country began rejoicing. Thousands of people greeted each other with victory. "That's our message all over the world: Do not be afraid of dictators!", said one of the participants of protest actions. But there is a more restrained assessment: "Do not rush to congratulate us! It has not ended, the most important thing lies ahead."
After Ben Ali's resignation, Prime Minister Mohamed Ghannouchi in a speech on television said that the government was temporarily transferred to him. But the next day, the Constitutional Council of Tunisia said that under the Constitution of the Speaker of Parliament Fuad Mbazaa shall become the Acting President. On January 15, he took the oath. But both represent the same ruling party that overthrew Ben Ali.
It has already been stated, that within two months in the country will be held early presidential elections.
Egypt. Jan. 25 start of mass protests in Egypt, which took place in Cairo, Alexandria, Suez, Asyut and other cities. The organizers of the protests made up of opposition groups of leftist, social-democratic orientation, called these actions a "day of rage" - "day of protest against torture, poverty, corruption and unemployment." People went onto the streets, using the appeals in social networks. Egyptian authorities took immediate action by blocking the Internet and mobile communications. And on the streets of Cairo were put 30,000 police officers. For the crackdown police used tear gas and water cannons. Protesters threw stones and debris of destroyed fences at police.
The general demands of the protesters - the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak, who has ruled the country since October 1981, the fair Elections and the social orientation of the economy. In the hands of the protesters could be seen the posters with slogans such as "Today, Tunisia - Egypt tomorrow," "We want bread, peace and respect!
Like in Tunisia, Egypt, workers live in poverty, and the ruling elite enjoy the luxury and wealth. According to the Human Development Index, Egypt occupies 101-s place out of 169 countries. At the same time, the family of Hosni Mubarak is one of the richest in the Middle East, with wealth, according to various estimates, amounting from 4 to 70 billion dollars, earned through the ruthless exploitation of the working people.
With increasing protests, the daily outpouring onto the squares and the streets of major cities in Egypt from the hundreds of thousands to a million or more protesters, this forced the police to abandon measures of violence against their own people. Egypt's armed forces occupied a position of neutrality and seeks to prevent the collision of warring parties, as onto the streets began to come out "supporters" of President Mubarak. Since the time of President Anwar Sadat, Egypt became openly pro-American, went on to conclude a peace treaty with Israel that led to its isolation in the Arab world. After the assassination of Sadat by Islamists in October 1981, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak began his rule, and pledged to adhere to the old foreign policy, i.e. steer a course towards further normalization of relations with Israel and its rapprochement with the West and to seek peace in the Middle East within the framework of the Camp David accords. Mubarak succeeded to a certain degree to restore Egypt's prestige and raise its international prestige, especially in the eyes of U.S. and the West. Egypt became second after Israel in the Middle East recipient of American aid, much of which is sent to the Armed Forces of Egypt. Israel is concerned with what's happening in Egypt, because Israelis fear the possibility of the Islamist organization the Muslim Brotherhood coming to power in Egypt, openly anti-Israel-anti-American.
Despite all the re-shuffles at the top leadership of the country and trying to hold on to power, the protesters forced Mubarak to step down. And here, during mass protests of the people, many fell victim. More than 300 people were killed and more than 5,000 wounded.
Power in the country passed into the hands of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces of Egypt, whose representative immediately stated that the Supreme Military Council will comply with all agreements and commitments and to adopt democratic, that is, Western, principles and values. Currently, the Supreme Military Council dissolved Parliament, suspended the constitution, offering 10 days to re-write it and, within two months submit to a referendum, and banned public demonstrations.

Large protests also took place and are held in other Arab and Muslim countries: Yemen, Algeria, Jordan, Libya, Syria ... On 14 February, there was a mass protest in Iran with the same slogan: "Down with the dictator!" This refers to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a leading anti-American leader.
All this shows to where and against whom the present "revolutions" are aimed.
And although the Americans have been trying to distance itself from some of its influence on the ongoing mass protests of the people, reality tells a different story.
Thus, The Daily Telegraph wrote that the U.S. government secretly supported the main actors, who were behind the protests in Egypt and were planning a revolt over the last three years (Herald, 01/29/2011). In particular, the U.S. embassy in Cairo has helped a young dissident activists to attend a summit in New York, which was organized by the U.S. government. Simultaneously, the U.S. did everything to hide his real name from Egypt's secret service. Upon his return to Cairo in December 2008, the activist told U.S. diplomats that the opposition leaders developed a plan to overthrow Hosni Mubarak in 2011 and the subsequent creation of a government based on democratic principles. Egypt's security services managed to arrest him during these protests.
On January 20, during a teleconference with journalists, staff member of the New York Council on Foreign Relations, Stephen Cook said that he was going to Cairo and expects that the National Police Day, celebrated in Egypt on January 25 will result in mass protests. I.e. this employee was already aware of emerging actions and travelled to Cairo not in vain (Svobodanews.ru, 11.02.2011).
Many analysts and commentators of the events indicate that, for these protests to be carried out, there was no necessity for long-term training of young protest cadres of pro-American orientation, such as during the "colour revolutions" in Georgia and Ukraine, where large sums of money, time were to spend on them.
Now, the mobile communications and the Internet replaced the training for these protests. The youth communicate on the Internet, social networks, where they are quietly inculcated with the principles of Western democracy and bourgeois freedom and with these slogans, with demands for change over to a western model, and it was involved in these mass protests.
In this sense, is an interesting article by Roger Cohen, "The Arab Internet Revolution", published in the International Herald Tribune (USA) on January 28. The American journalist criticizes the book by Evgeny Morozov “Network illusions. The Dark Side of the Internet ", which appeared in stores at a time when the youth of Tunisia - noted the author of the paper - demonstrates the liberating power of social networking."
But from the article by Roger Cohen, we learn that Morozov, a 26-year-old Californian internet explorer (a native of Belarus), gives to the Internet a completely correct assessment. The cyber-utopians, and not the least of them, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, have created a dangerous illusion, as if the world can come to democracy and freedom through blogs and services such as Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and Google – such is the basic conclusion of the book by Morozov. In an era when "the most intelligent and talented geeks", the so-called "Google doctrine” has become, in the opinion of the author, a seductive trap. "They want - said Evgeny Morozov – so that people are interested in dating, pornography and celebrity gossip" - exactly what has most saturated the internet. And he himself, Roger Cohen does not deny the connection between Twitter and the U.S. government, more so, for example, during the demonstrations in Iran in 2009, when the U.S. State Department officials had openly been in contact with the leadership of this company.
"These lines I write, - said Roger Cohen, - after returning from Tunisia, where Facebook has given the young demonstrators strength, which enabled them to throw the dictator. Now before my eyes is footage from Youtube, in which courageous young Egyptians oppose President Hosni Mubarak's thugs with their batons and water cannons." "The organization, network activity, the discovery of banned ideas and information, debating skills and independence...are just some of the gifts of social networks to the predominantly young population of the Arab world." And Roger Cohen concludes: "No, the Tunisian revolution was made by the pro-Western middle class, and during it, Islamic slogans did not sound out. Onto the streets of Cairo came young pragmatic people, alien ideologies .... "
In my opinion, this article by Roger Cohen openly demonstrates that the popular unrest in Tunisia, Egypt and other countries was controlled and directed into the track needed by U.S. imperialism. In the same article is quoted Hillary Clinton, saying that the U.S. priority is "the mobilization of communication technologies and their use in our diplomatic purposes." Candid enough.
Just like in Georgia and Ukraine "colour revolutions" occurred according to the western scenario, and with American money, just as is the massive popular unrest in the Arab world.
The overthrown Tunisian and Egyptian rulers were loyal servants of U.S. imperialism, the conductors of American influence, US-Israeli policy in the Arab world and the Middle East. But when the throne underneath them began swaying due to anti-national social policy, mass unemployment, poverty and misery of the people, the American puppet masters began to direct the righteous anger of the people in the direction towards them, but with the use of the latest developments of information industry, mobile communications and the Internet. That, among other things, allows them to remain as it were, behind the scenes.
The arrival to power in Egypt of th eSupreme Council of the Armed Forces is completely under American influence, because Egypt's armed forces receive the second largest, after Israel's multibillion-dollar aid to equip the army with weapons and military equipment, of course, American-made. It is clear that the Supreme Military Council and would continue to pursue pro-American policy, a policy of cooperation with Egypt, Israel and the betrayal of the interests of Arab peoples.
But on the other hand, this does not mean that the Marxist revolutionary forces must stand apart from the actions and outpouring of the people onto the streets. After all, we also have here a classic revolutionary situation, according to Lenin, when the lower classes do not want to live in the old, and the top can no longer operate under the old, where hatred of the people of the ruling regime is so great that people are willing to face death, which was place in Tunisia and Egypt, than to remain in the powerless, hopeless situation. But in order for mass popular action to really take on a revolutionary proletarian character, when one group of the bourgeoisie at the top of the power are not replaced by another group of such oppressors of the people, but when working people really come to power, the working class comes to power, the presence of the subjective factor in the people's revolution - a proletarian Revolutionary Party, which is closely related to the masses.
The establishment of close ties with Marxist revolutionary organizations in the Arab world, as well as the whole world, is the most important task of our Party – the AUCPB - in the international arena.

Russia: a climate of insecurity and fear dominates

On January 24, the day before the mass demonstrations in Egypt, in Moscow's Domodedovo airport, a bomb attack occurred. In the centre of a hall room, a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device. The explosion killed 36 people. More than a hundred were wounded.
As noted by observers, this is the 26 th terrorist attack in Moscow over the past 15 years, during which more than 600 people have been killed.
The authorities immediately began to take measures to restore order to the security of citizens. But the number of attacks speaks for itself. Moreover, explosions rattle and terror attacks are carried out in other regions of Russia, especially in the North Caucasus. The Russian authorities cannot ensure security to its citizens.
The question arises: who benefits from, and who is behind these terrorist attacks?
The answer is obvious. This is beneficial to itself the ruling regime in Russia, the Medvedev-Putin regime of large oligarchic capital. Enormous accumulation of wealth at one pole and misery and poverty on the other inevitably leads to the aggravation of social tensions, and sooner or later, lead to social upheaval.
To avoid this, the government is trying to take away responsibility for the situation in society, from itself and point out the "enemies" - those same underprivileged people, only of other nationalities, and aims to incite hatred of Russians towards inhabitants of the Caucasus, Orthodox Muslims, etc. This is a common tactic of the bourgeoisie: divide and conquer.
Under the guise of fighting terrorism and extremism in a charged with fear community, in an atmosphere of insecurity and fear, the regime would be able to "tighten the screws" bring about repression in the first place, against revolutionary forces, class conscious representatives of the working class, fighting for the revival of our great Soviet Socialist homeland.
Of course, "friends" of Russia - the U.S. imperialists and the West pour oil on fire, and nurture, fund and provide everything necessary for the terrorist activities of various extremist groups and elements. And here is used the same imperialist tactic - divide and conquer! To incite the people of Russia against each other, to create a society in an atmosphere of uncertainty and fear that inevitably weakens Russia, and then give her "assistance" under the guise of combating terrorism, interfering in internal affairs and enslaving Russia.

Ukraine: the bourgeoisie oppress, the people tolerate

Recently, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted a decision to hold the next parliamentary elections in October 2012 and presidential elections - in March 2015. The bourgeois power group has secured a quiet comfortable life for almost two years. Hence, they had no need to make any promises to the people, and with vengeance to take advantage in power and build up their capital.
That is what the bourgeoisie does. As we have said before, all laws are being prepared for adoption or have already been adopted: Tax, Labor, Housing, Pension Reform, Land Reform, the Parliament has adopted the laws and decisions of the government and so the burden of overcoming the crisis lays firmly on the shoulders of the working people.
Prime Minister Azarov declared a total collapse of the housing and communal system of the country, noting that 80% of the networks, water pipes, sewers are in disrepair. And he stated the inevitability of "difficult reforms." What this means is clear to everyone. The reform of public utilities, as well as all other reforms will be implemented at the expense of working people, by the further increase of tariffs for housing services. But they both growing. Goskomstat recorded 14% increase in utility rates in 2010 and announced that this year's rates will rise at least another 30%. But this is the official data. The reality is much worse. From February 1, increased electricity charges, from 1 April last year, a scheduled 50% rise in price of gas for domestic use.
On the rapid rise in food prices and one say nothing. That one, each of us sees going to the store and the market.
In one of his speeches, President Yanukovich set a "ambitious" goal - to reach by 2020, a population growth of Ukraine up to ... 50 million people. But now the population of Ukraine is less than 46 million and last year alone it fell by another 170,000 (official data). At what expense is the president is going to achieve such growth. An increase in payments for extra child births will not achieve it. Mass unemployment, the total lack of prospects for young people, the rapid growth of prices and rates with extremely low salaries and student grants, there are no opportunities for young people to purchase housing (except for the youth elite, because they live in a completely different world), etc. All this speaks of the unreality of presidential plans. The trend seen is quite different - a further decrease in population.
But even if the president's plans are suddenly realized.
In 1992, at the beginning of the bourgeois reforms and independence, Ukraine had a population of 52 million 250 thousand people. (And annually in Soviet Ukraine, the population grew). And after 30 years - 50 million?!
During the mass uprisings in Egypt, hundreds of thousands of tourists were forced to interrupt their vacation on the azure shores of the Mediterranean and quickly return home, wondering and indignant at what was happening.
In Moscow, citizens scared to death ask a rhetorical question: what is happening in Russia, why innocent people are killed.
In Ukraine, however, workers are still silent. But this silence is increasingly developing into a dull murmur of discontent.
But all of this is phenomena of the same order.
Before our eyes, world imperialism and the world of the omnipotence of capital and money-bags is collapsing. And to delay its inevitable collapse, there will continue to be terrorist attacks in Russia, no matter how often President Medvedev visits railway stations and airports, there will continue to be the uprising of the masses against tyranny and poverty, which the modern puppeteers, using new technology will deviate to one side, placing around the neck of the people one set of rulers, exploiters by another set, that pleases the West, the cash cow.
Putting an end to war, terror and poverty can only be done by destroying imperialism, the source. Already no one can sit in the close nook of the family, comfortable little world, where personal interests and personal welfare are above all.
Only by a united struggle of the vast masses of people under the revolutionary banner of Marxism-Leninism can we win and wipe out the hated system of the power of capital, the system of exploitation, war, violence and robbery.
A. MAYEVSKY, secretary of the CC AUCPB




A couple of years ago, a number of senior officials, including the author of the Diary, had seen with their own eyes a number of towns and cities in the coastal area of Libya. During a discussion of practical issues of interstate cooperation, a personal meeting with the leader of the Libyan Revolution Muammar al-Gaddafi was requested. After addressing these issues and the transfer of greetings and best wishes of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il to the Arab revolutionary Gaddafi, the conversation turned to a lengthy discussion of ideological and theoretical problems. Everything that was examined on that day has been confirmed by events at this historic juncture.
It is obvious that the causes of the counterrevolutionary riots in Libya should be sought not only in external forces, as rightly pointed out by the leader of the Cuban revolution, Fidel Castro, but in the first place - in the collapse of ideological work among the population, and the substitution of party and political work to rehabilitate people, by way of senseless ideological dogmatism and purely financial incentives.
Herein lies the fundamental flaw in the so-called "third world theory" set forth in the "Green Book" by Muammar al-Qaddafi, and one that for a long time was pointed out to him personally by President Kim Il Sung .
The "Third World theory" is influenced by anarchism, by postulating the elimination of state and party, as such, and the immediate transition to general self-rule in the form of people's congresses and people's committees. In view of this point, the question of support of the subject of the revolution has remained unresolved, which from a scientific point of view is always the totality of the masses, the Party, army and the Leader.
Under the people’s leader Gaddafi, the Libyan masses reached such standard of living that, let us say, the population of the former Soviet republics seemed completely unattainable. The citizens were so spoiled that obtaining through the system of people's committees, people's congresses and charities all that they needed, they were not able to work in production, preferring to live off a significant benefit.
On the income from so-called "oil and gas," Muammar Al-Gaddafi, I must say, built comfortable multi-storey homes and handed out apartments that were rent and electricity free to all those who wished. Petrol in the country was dirt cheap, and in every family there were 2 or 3 new cars purchased. Newly weds were at the same time immediately given tens of thousands of dollars. Education abroad for children of any family was provided free of charge. Medicine, education were completely free of charge, and an incredible number of European doctors were imported into the country for the highly skilled treatment of the people. Basic foodstuffs were purchased for next to nothing, and the so-called "business" of major taxes, VAT-s and other levies, abolished.
In the absence of a stable system of education of the people, this fair social policy of Muammar Al-Gadhafi created a mass of parasites, lacking world outlook, and by the logic of class struggle, they were bound to descend to the positions of counter-revolution – imagining themselves as "potential millionaires", targeting their goals to the level of wealth of so-called "Sheikhs" and "kings" of the Persian (Arabian) Gulf.
One should openly state, that it is very rare to see a Libyan working in Libya.
During the daytime, almost the entire population of the capital Tripoli is relaxing by the sea. A giant beach cuts the Libyan coast from end to end, and is a continuous chain of bungalows, attractions, “kebab stalls" filled with people in the midst of every working day.
In the city of Tripoli one often face situations when you can not buy basic things due to the fact that shops are closed and their employees are too lazy to even sell their products. Based on extensive experience of working in other parts of the Arab region, it has to be said that Libya is one of the few Arab countries (if not the only country), where street vendors do not try to constantly haggle with the buyer. It shows in the first place, lack of desire to engage in any work, even including trade, customary to Arab masses on the basis of national identity.
Basic material production culture in Libya is made by the hands of foreigners.
Foreign workers and office staff support the excellent infrastructure all created through the efforts of the leader Muammar al-Gaddafi. For example, domestic flights are often carried out by Ugandan and other airlines.
There is no doubt that the leader of the Libyan Revolution Muammar Al-Gadhafi has glorified his country, and has done much for its residents. A section of the masses by virtue of a political mistake, did not appreciate such a "noble thing" and began to believe the Internet fraud and religious obscurantism of the fanatical sinusitis sects. By the way, the Internet is everywhere and in some places, free, and was developed specifically by the leader Gaddafi. Outside the ideological education of every person from birth, this led to the Arab masses for many hours to use this network not for self-development but, mainly for the consumption of video productions of a sexual nature (pornography).
We hope that events will give the possibility of such an outstanding leader as Muammar al-Gaddafi, to even more firmly fix the political situation, to eliminate system errors in order to promote further the march of the Libyan revolution on the right path of independence.
Ideological work to educate and rehabilitate the population can not be conducted on a case by case occasional basis. Education is a continuous process, and it ends only when the person being educated, dies. Lessons have been taught by the temporary defeat of socialism in some countries of Eastern Europe, and the lesson is being taught by the Libyan counter-revolution now.
