From the 15th to the 18th of September, Red Youth attended the international “leftist” political festival in Paris, Fête de l’Humanité. Continue reading “Red Youth Report from Fête de l’Humanité.”
Harpal Brar gives a message of greeting message on the significance of the 100th anniversary of the Great Socialist October Revolution.
We will be holding a centenary celebration of this festival of progressive humanity in Southall, west London, on Saturday 4th November, at 4.30pm.
At the beginning of April, US President Trump made the startling announcement that “if China is not going to solve North Korea, we will,” arrogantly adding, “China will either decide to help us with North Korea, or they won’t. And if they do, that will be very good for China, and if they don’t it won’t be good for anyone.”
In the wake of that announcement, this week the USS Carl Vinson carrier group was announced to be travelling to Korea, later revealed to be untrue, a bit of fake news to bolster Trump’s declaration on 12 April that the US is “sending an armada” to join in with the regular provocative military excersises conducted on the Peninsula. Around 30,000 US troops are stationed in South Korea, with a further 50,000 in Japan and 3,000 in Guam.
US imperialism is known for being staunchly against any nation not firmly under its economic or military control to be capable of defending itself, and Korea is perhaps the most frustrating example of an independent nation.
In the following interview, I sat down with an American political analyst to discuss Donald Trump’s victory in the US Presidential elections and whether or not he represents a blow to imperialism. We discussed the impact Trump would have if he sticks to his promises regarding NATO and free trade agreements and whether of not he will end the export of so-called freedom and democracy.
On Sunday, December 4th, comrades from the Communist Party of Great Britain – Marxist Leninist (CPGB-ML), the Indian Workers’ Association (IWA), and the Socialist Labour Party (SLP) held a meeting to remember the Cuban Revolutionary, Fidel Castro, and his contribution to the betterment of working people in Cuba and around the world.
Comrade Sayakane Sisouvong, Laos’ Ambassador to the UK, spoke movingly of the electrifying effect that the October Revolution and Soviet Socialism – the first durable workers’ republic – had on the colonised peoples of southeast Asia, including the people of Laos.
Cuban ambassador to the UK, Comrade Teresita Vicente, speaks powerfully at the CPGB-ML meeting to celebrate the 99th anniversary of the Great Socialist October Revolution held in Saklatvala Hall, Southall, West London on 5th November 2016.
Her full speech is now available to view in this video. Please watch and listen carefully to her words, and share her powerful message widely. You could not find a better antidote to the US election campaign!
The meeting, and comrade Teresita’s speech was reported in the Cuban media: http://misiones.minrex.gob.cu/es/articulo/celebrado-aniversario-99-de-la-gran-revolucion-socialista-de-octubre Continue reading “Cuba is Socialist – and so we will be!”
While the corrupt and reactionary agents of the bourgeoisie in Brazil have suspended democratically elected Dilma Rousseff’s presidential powers (Attempted Coup in Brazil – Proletarian), leaving the traitorous Temer holding the reins, the class struggle in Venezula intensifies.
Venezuela has suffered at the hands of the national and international bourgeoise and compradors who have conspired to sabotage the gains made by Chavez, Maduro, and the PSUV. Hoarding basic goods such as toilet roll and food, economic and infrastructural sabotage, capital flight, and more recently assassinations, combined with the drop in oil revenues, are just some of the tactics employed to undermine the popular democractic efforts to socialize Venezuela.
On May Day of the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Uprising, Comrade Joti of the CPGB-ML speaks about the Irish people’s long struggle for national liberation from British rule, which was inspired by the uprising and its leaders – James Connolly, Tom Clarke, Padraig Pearse, and their comrades.
Marx and Engels concluded that Britain would never be free – that is would be incapable of social revolution; of workers freeing themselves of their ruling imperialist capitalist class – until Ireland, her oldest colony, won its liberation.
Lenin, in turn, praised the Easter uprising of 1916 as a great revolutionary struggle, going so far as to name her citizen army as being ‘Europe’s first Red Army.’

Red Youth and the CPGB-ML once again took to the streets this 1 May to celebrate International Workers’ Day, marking the past heroic struggles of the working classes of the world and promoting the only viable future for humanity – communism!
Jeremy Corbyn addressed the crowd at Clerkenwell – the first Labour leader to do so in 50 years – apparently solely to address the media furore around perceived anti-semitism within the Labour party which has seen Naz Shah MP and Ken Livingstone suspended. Desperate to preserve their electability not a single mention of the genocide of Palestinians was to be heard.
