PR opinion – contribution to the discussion: Revolutionary party between the contradictions of imperialism!

Regarding the question of what position to take in this situation, a revolutionary party and a movement in a concrete historical situation around Venezuela, when it is found in the vortex of the clash between imperialists and the imperialist attacks on individual states with the aim of enslaving the people, certain differences in thoughts in the revolutionary movements.

PR believes that unreserved support should be given in the defense of Venezuela, or its people, with all the means from the invasion of American imperialism. It is necessary to put aside the very character of the regime, whatever it was, if that regime is resisting that aggression and enslavement.

PROGRAM AND ORGANIZATIONAL PRINCIPLES OF PR

Ideological line of PR

Centralization and concentration of capital with the goal of putting the whole world under control has come into contradiction with the development of productive forces. This centralization and the present technology level are an obstacle for the further functioning of capitalism, or for further development of humanity in existing social relations. Capitalism has lost the ability to overcome its cyclical crises and to delay its collapse. These crises are fundamental and permanent.

Bloody shirts to them!

  Protests against the current Serbian government, regardless of the slogans used, are in their essence part of general protests organized throughout Europe. They are an expression of petits bourgeoisie ideology against their real and imaginary world crumbling down. It is a cry of the European petit bourgeois because his/her privileged world, compared to the “uncivilized rest of the world” is disappearing right before his/her eyes. It is a cry of the Balkan petit bourgeois because the promised world of Europe yet to come is vanishing right before his/her eyes.

Balkan impoverished masses have abruptly faced the destruction of the promised world and most people want to leave this region to go to the “promised Europe”, hoping that this is the only path to salvation. This trend is unstoppable at the moment, until greater crises occur in Europe itself, while “brass drums” can be heard in the background.

PR opinion – Macedonia on a crossroad

makedonija i grcka 01  Communists have long taken a clear stand on the Macedonian national question and their right to defend their independence and name. Every attempt by Bulgarian, Greek and Serbian nationalists to deny the existence of a Macedonian nation was condemned. Even today communists condemn all attempts by the Balkan regimes to try to achieve their petty chauvinistic interests at the expense of the people of Macedonia, fighting on the side of imperialists.

  The question of choosing the name for the country in which to live is the question of which answer can be given only by its citizens.

  The existing agreement reached by the governments of Macedonia and Greece over the name is formally in the interest of the peoples of these countries, but it is essentially brought under the dictation of imperialists and their current interests. Of course, this dictatorship continues to pursue the rights of the Macedonian, Albanian and other masses.

  It is completely unacceptable to use the coming referendum so that the people of Macedonia officially recognize the occupation of the NATO Pact and the EU imperialists.

  We support all the progressive forces that are fighting for the freedom of Macedonia and Greece, against the NATO forces and all imperialists. It is the duty of all to break of the myth that the Balkan peoples can not resist these forces. The unity of the people of Macedonia, Greece and other peoples in the Balkans can not be built under covert chauvinism, neither under the dictates of the imperialists or the placing under the NATO boot. Only the united and equal peoples of the Balkans can free themselves from the dictatorship of capital and imperialism.

  For the unity of the Balkan peoples in resistance to imperialism!

  With Balkan resistance movement!

Imperialism and the Balkans

shah  After the breakup of the Soviet Union, the attempt of the Western imperialists to establish hegemony and new world order failed. New imperialist centers of the capital concentration have been established. Instead of establishing it's hegemony all over the world, Western imperialism has become a subject of many attempts of subjugation by both supranational capital and ever stronger imperialist countries such as Russia, China, etc. On the other hand, the condition for the survival of the Western imperialism is not to allow the creation of other independent centers of imperialist power, even if it means entering trade or global war with them. That has been a tested tactics of all imperialists during the 20th century for solving their crises with a war export and creation efforts, and also with the additional strengthening of their military-industrial power. We are currently witnessing three basic world processes – an attack on the unity of the Western imperialism in the service of supranational capital which aims to overcome it's own crisis for the purposes of destroying the existing financial system in order to preserve global financial domination and the foundations of capitalism themselves, closure and formation of pacts within imperialist countries among the attacks of the supranational capital and their attempts to split the world once more, and the movement of the masses and their resistance on the global scale, that both supranational capital and leading imperialist countries are trying to control.

Revolution in Yugoslavia

I – Founding and development of Yugoslavia

Zgrabimo_oružje_svi            Yugoslavia was founded as a result of the historical aspirations of its nations for independence from the Austro-Hungarian monarchy and the Ottoman Empire. The pursuit of freedom and unification was especially pronounced in the 19th century with the national intelligentsia, which advocates the unification of all Balkan peoples. The national liberation of the Balkan peoples is intertwined with the interests of the great powers, that is, the interests of the bourgeoisie and the dynasties of the Balkan states, and it is followed by serious conflicts. This national liberation can not be viewed outside the struggle for social liberation.

            The end of World War I led to political turmoil in the territory of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire. The October Revolution and the revolution in Hungary had a special echo among the Yugoslav peoples.

            Over 30,000 Yugoslavs took part in the October Revolution, and a Yugoslav army was formed in the Red Army.

            On December 1, 1918, the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes was created. This was also in the interest of the victorious powers as a refuge against the revanchism of Italy and Hungary, and at the same time as a sanitary cordon against Bolshevism. Thus, instead of a republican, democratic structure, a monarchist and centralist state was created. Nobody could successfully resist this, because only Serbia had an organized army and police.

            Slovenes and Croats immediately realized that they fell under power that was no better than the Austro-Hungarian authorities. Montenegrins and Macedonians were not recognized as a separate nation and simply considered them Serbs. Other nationalities did not have any rights.

            In Croatia, Montenegro and Macedonia there was a growing dissatisfaction with the Greater Serbian oppression, the dissatisfaction that often got rebellious and separatist character.

PR opinion – Protests in Serbia

lanci6  When it seemed that in Serbia everything has completely died out, considering movement of the masses and resistance to the system of oppression, the masses are back on the streets.

  Whether these protests are spontaneous or organized by someone, it is not so relevant now. We are not going to analyze who can be the ‘organizor’. Our goal is to find the cause of this movement, its ideas and forces as well as the results we can expect.

  The main reason for these protests is the bad socio-economic status of the people. Students in Serbia have lost all their hope that life for them here will be any better. Within many ordinary people there is a wish to “fulfill” their life goals in acceptable economic conditions, where they will get the chance to live a decent life, and that dream had been presented to them – that they will live in “European welfare” and in “Serbia with Europen values”. And the students were always ready to accept that neoliberal myth of “happy life”. But now everything collapsed in front of their very eyes. Europe has changed and become something else, it embraced fascism, and there are many conflicts within, and this kind of “welfare” in so longer available to everyone. At the same time this neoliberal dream in Serbia, where it was constantly promoted by the dictator and servant of capital, Aleksandar Vučić, started to break into pieces and all his lies emerged so clear on the surface. And all of his lies could keep on going were there not something else in the masses. Because of the global political situation and because it is suitable for the capital, one-party dictatorship started to be implemented; or better to say the dictatorship of one man with his clique around him whom the imperialist support. Dictatorship in which they do not even respect the essential rules of former bourgeois democracy. These dictatorships preserve its rule using a brutal force. That is the case not only in Serbia, but in many other countries in the world and it is a well known reaction of the world of capital on order to save and preserve the foundations of its existence.

Balkans on the eve of the imperialist war

antiratni03-01  All preparations for the imperialist war to start are in the final stage. On the one side Western imperialism led by the US, and, on the other side, the Russian and Chinese imperialists and their allies. However, a secret pact between the imperialists right before the conflict is not excluded, as it had already happened before the Second World War. Nowadays, the imperialists made a further step; they fight each other in different countries’ territories, competing to sell more of their arms to everyone involved in the war. The ideology is not important at all, and the imperialists will not hesitate to make the most reactionary decisions. We can only speculate about the form of the war in the next stage, but it is apparent that the conflict cannot be stopped.

  A major conflict is approaching, and it is only a matter of time before the current conflicts turn into a new phase.

  The question is what kind of attitude to take in this escalating conflict because it is not only about the fate of hundreds of millions of people but perhaps the human kind as such.

Solidarity with political prisoners

01   The activists of the Party of Labour performed an action of solidarity with political prisoners in Spain. The members of the International Brigades in Rojava were arrested in Spain for their part in the fight against ISIS. On 26 January, police raided at least 11 apartments and workplaces in several cities. Roberto Vaquero, a member of the PML (RC), was held in detention on charges of cooperation with terrorist organizations. This shows that revolution in Rojava has its influence in Spain, the fear of revolution that goes beyond the Middle East.
   Example of international struggle in Rojava and revived spirit of Spanish international brigade is something new that gives hope to re-strengthen the international solidarity, which is so necessary in divided Balkan.

Freedom for political prisoners!
Freedom for Robert!
In solidarity with the struggle of the international brigade!

Support in justified struggle

05   Activists of the Party of Labout continued solidarity propaganda activities with the justified struggle of the Kurdish people for their freedom. At the same time these activities are support for the unity of the Kurdish and Turkish revolutionary movement.
  Campaign was in front of the Turkish Embassy in Belgrade.
  Silence in front of the terror of the Turkish regime against the Kurdish people is capitulation to the onslaught of fascism, not only in Turkey but also in Europe and in the Balkans. This silence and capitulation itself is dictated by the objectives of imperialists (US, Europe and Russia), who in pursuing our own interests do not to stop it. The right to the use of force, negotiation at the expense of other small nations, mass crimes and destruction for them is something they have for granted; therefore these global terrorists no longer feel the need to justify their actions to anyone. And so is the silence for this policy of global terrorists are not only an expression of hypocrisy or cowardice, but standing on the side of these modern fascists and villains.
  Not all are silent, many raise their voice opposition to such policies of the Turkish regime. Raise their voices in Turkey itself, resistance is growing fascism. The resistance comes not only from the revolutionary organizations, but also of all free thinking people and the oppressed classes…
  The latest integration of the Turkish and Kurdish revolutionary movement is caused by the need to survive against the onslaught of the brutal forces of the Turkish regime, but also a direct result of the very long historical process.
  Since the power of the revolutionary movement in Turkey, Kurdistan and the Middle East will infuence on the speed of building a revolutionary movement in the Balkans and that means the fate of the Balkan resistance. Therefore, the task of all those who call themselves leftists to clearly support the struglle of the Turkish and Kurdish revolutionaries. Those who are silent, practiced the "more important" issues and not to undertake minimum activities to support this struggle and to create conditions for strengthening the Balkan resistance movements, they have taken their side. In other words, they are on the opposite side of the barricades.

Long live the unity trurskog and Kurdish revolutionary movement!
The Balkan resistance!
