In the last few days, there have been historically massive uprisings in Chile. In Santiago, the entire metro system has been closed in protests that have been directed against higher prices for public transportation, among other grievances.
As we have written earlier, the Norwegian railway system has undergone a number of rounds of privatization. The result is that the railways are divided up and that the service has been put up for auction. Now, politicians wish to continue the trend by submitting to the EU’s new railway package.
In autumn and winter, there are a number of special days that can be commemorated with information meetings, ceremonies, propaganda, or actions. Birthdays have traditionally not been observed in the communist movement, but they are nonetheless good occasions to make ourselves and others familiar with great communist leaders.
After years and years of betrayals from revisionists and right-liquidationists that now rule the country, these new developments are a fresh breath of air. But if the revolution is to finally win in Nepal, it demands a correct political-ideological line as a guiding thought. Time will only tell whether or not the masses in Nepal will once again be let down. The international communist movement follows these developments with excitement.
It is correct to demand that revolutionaries consider each and every message from the leadership that the people’s war is canceled as false, as long as they have fallen or ended up in the enemy’s hands. The leadership never dies and when the red flag has first been raised, it may never be lowered again.
The answer is that the socialist revolution is the solution to the climate crisis. The roots of the climate crisis lie in capitalism’s fundamental laws of development. The system is the problem. And the solution is revolution and system change. This is the standpoint that communists must advocate in the environmental struggle. This is a destiny that flows with the proletariat’s struggle against the bourgeoisie, and like streams, it will become a river. A powerful, rushing river that will tear down the system and pave the way for a new and sustainable world.
Yankee-imperialism pressures its allies in Europe to increase military spending. NRK and Klassekampen both report that the US ambassador in Norway is applying pressure on politicians. The government has answered that military spending has never been higher than it is today.
NRK writes about a proposal from the government to change the “integration law” by tightening standards for results in Norwegian language tests used to receive citizenship in Norway.
The Communist Party of Peru (CPP) has been criticized by enemies, opponents, and by people who have not understood their line and the people’s war in Peru. The originally Hoxhaist periodical Revolusjon! has also published such a critique in Norwegian.
The hypocrisy and shame of the capitalist world’s depiction of this epoch, the attacks on the Soviet Union under Stalin, and the suppression of the colonial powers’ wild assaults are grotesque examples of how the ruling thoughts are the ruler’s thoughts. Anti-communist films about the famine in Ukraine in the 1920s are screened in Norwegian theatres, while millions starve to death in the here and now under capitalism. It is shameful, and it is revealing.
This is the second part of a longer article. In dividing into two, we tried to focus the first part on issues of burning importance, and place most secondary issues in this second part. We also put some paragraphs here that deal with issues that has been addressed earlier by Ard Kinera or other maoists.
