En Paraguay, estruendosa resurrección del Partido Liberal
26 Apr 2008
Aunque el fin de los 61 años de hegemonía del aparato clientelista del estado teñido del signo político colorado ha tenido diversas interpretaciones, y complejas y múltiples causas, es imposible restar méritos a la estrategia y la actitud de la dirigencia y el electorado del Partido Liberal, verdaderos artífices fundamentales de la resonante victoria popular del 20 de abril.

All Out on May Day!
26 Apr 2008
troquerosla0604.jpgOn May 1, all 29 ports on the U.S. West Coast are to be shut down by the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) in protest against the U.S. war on Afghanistan and Iraq. This is a historic event of international significance: labor action against imperialist war by a major American union. The strategically placed port workers in the ILWU can bring commerce with Asia to a grinding halt, and they’re about to demonstrate it. The maritime employers are already screaming, and you can bet it’s got the attention of the warmongers in Washington. All labor should take up the challenge this poses: For workers strikes against the war! Meanwhile, immigrants’ rights groups are once again mobilizing on May Day. And on April 30 and May 1, the independent truckers who move cargo to and from the docks may play an important role in a shutdown. The imperialist war on Afghanistan and Iraq is also a war on immigrants, minorities, working people and democratic rights “at home.” We need to defeat this attack here and abroad, in opposition to both the capitalist war parties. The “antiwar movement,” whose aim has always been to pressure the Democrats, is at a dead end. What’s needed is working-class action independent of the bosses. What that takes is a fundamental break from the Democratic Party and the pro-capitalist politics that infuse the labor bureaucracy.

Stock Market Game of Bankocrats
24 Apr 2008
The crisis is due to over-production (declining mass demand) and over-accumulation (falling profit rates). The global financial markets seem uncoupled from production. The pressure to double-digit profits overstrains nature as well as the real economy of labor and production.
