For the Resumption of the Class Struggle!
01 May 2009
The capitalist crisis which has crashed down on society has already had and for a long time will have disastrous consequences for the lives of the masses, as every worker can see in his daily life or her work.

It is very tragic that a demagogue like Ahmedinajad, after delivering his despicable speech at the U.N. on the eve of the Holocaust remembrance, would be depicted as a hero in Tehran! But Mubarak does the same
