Marxism and the war in Donbas

By | 05/24/2019

By Victor Shapinov, published on the English-language website of Borotba political group Borotba is often criticized for supporting the Donbas people’s republics, for the fact that our comrades fight in the militia and assist the peaceful nation-building in Lugansk (LPR) and Donetsk (DPR) People’s Republics. This criticism is heard not only from those former leftists who succumbed to nationalist fervor and supported first Maidan, and then Kiev’s war… Read More »

On the resolutions of the 3rd ICOR World Conference

By | 03/03/2018

Many of the resolutions of the Third ICOR World Conference do not meet their objective which is to unite and orient the communists all over the world. They are low in quality and rather unclear. There are some obscure formulations in them which even the Main Coordinator of the ICOR and the ICOR Office could not explain. Some statements are even politically wrong and harmful. The resolution “Resistance Against  Erdogan Dictatorship” contains Erdogan’s distorted… Read More »

On the resolution of the ICOR “Stop the fascist war of aggression on Rojava/Northern Syria! Afrin will live!”

By | 02/26/2018

We refrain from signing the ICOR resolution for the following reasons: inaccurate assessment of the pre-bourgeois Islamic-fundamentalist ISIS as “fascist”; one-sided assessment of the moods of the Arab and especially the Turkoman population; inadequate description of non-interference (as well as some sympathy and even support of Kurds by arms) of the imperialist powers as direct aggression against the Kurds.

On the Charlottesville incident and acts against statues

By | 11/10/2017

Generally speaking, it would be better not to destroy any monuments, especially those which have artistic or historical significance. Such actions are often burdened by the risk of vandalism, the irretrievable destruction of cultural and historical values ​​and the discordance among the broad masses of the people. However, it should be understood that old cultural values are not a sacred cow, especially if it is not about highly artistic works or… Read More »

For a genuine anti-imperialism, against Trump fetishism

By | 10/25/2017

As the United States is the sole superpower in the world today, their foreign policy and not their internal policy is essentially more important for the proletariat and the people of the world. To put the question in the contrary way means locally closed-mindedness and egoism. Although it is incorrect to completely deny the reactionary innovations in US domestic policy under Trump such as attempts to tighten antisocial austerity measures and favoring right-wing fans of the patriarchal slave-owning past. These politics hit… Read More »

On self-determination of Catalonia

By | 10/17/2017

We reaffirm our commitment to the principle of national self-determination in connection with the referendums on independence that took place on September 25 in Iraqi Kurdistan and October 1 in Catalonia. The Catalans have separate (from the Castilian Spaniards) ethnic identity, their own language, their own experience with  statehood and subsequent history of a national movement against the policy of assimilation and oppression pursued by Spain. Catalonia has no less grounds for independence than, for example, Portugal or neighboring Andorra.. The current Spanish regime is the restoration… Read More »

On the ICOR-Resolution on US Presidential Election

By | 12/25/2016

We regret that the ICC of the ICOR ignored our political observations on the draft ICOR-Resolution on US presidential election and consider it necessary to openly express our views in this text and the results of the election. We share and support the title idea of the resolution: “US presidential election between pest and cholera”. However, the resolution by itself runs counter to that title. It’s very one-sided and all along suggests that Clinton is… Read More »

Manifesto of the Communist Party

By | 09/19/2016

A spectre is haunting Europe — the spectre of communism. All the powers of old Europe have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spectre: Pope and Tsar, Metternich and Guizot, French Radicals and German police-spies. Where is the party in opposition that has not been decried as communistic by its opponents in power? Where… Read More »
