What's New at Socialist Appeal's "In Defence of Marxism" web site http://www.marxist.com January 31st 1999 40th Anniversary of the Cuban Revolution http://www.marxist.com/Latinam/cuba.html Forty years ago on January 1st 1959 a general strike paralysed Cuba and forced dictator Batista to flee the country. In a few days the July 26 Movement guerrillas led by Fidel Castro and Ernesto Che Guevara entered the capital Havana and were received as heroes by the masses. The Cuban revolution had succeeded. What was the programme of that movement? What was the social basis of that revolution?

What's New at Socialist Appeal's "In Defence of Marxism" web site http://www.marxist.com January 31st 1999 1999: the start of the long economic winter http://www.marxist.com/economy/winter.html The world is heading for a major slump in the next 12-18 months. All the signs are there. On the surface all seems reasonably rosy. The world's stock markets have recovered from their autumn crash and the 'real economy' of developed capitalism also performed reasonably well in 1998. Only Japan continued to dive by nearly 3%. But so-called emerging Asia suffered the worst slump in a lifetime while Russia entered yet another horrific downturn as the rouble collapsed. Latin America is now sliding into recession. Overall the capitalist world grew about 1.5% hardly enough to compensate for population growth. And 1998 was a relatively good year. The neon signs of a deep slump ahead are flashing.

What's New at Socialist Appeal's "In Defence of Marxism" web site http://www.marxist.com February 9th 1999 - Which way for blacks in the US - Black nationalism or socialist revolution? http://www.marxist.com/usa/blacks.html The United States is the richest and most powerful country on the planet. Yet despite this the poison of racism remains an integral part of America. Blacks together with the other racial minorities remain the most exploited section of society. Blacks continue to suffer from lynchings and violence at the hands of the state racist organisations and individuals as well as being forced to live under conditions of mass poverty and oppression. Rob Sewell discusses the alternatives from a working class point of view. (February 1999) - Nationalism or socialism? A look at the problems in Quebec http://www.marxist.com/usa/quebec.html The recent election in Quebec has once again brought to the fore the question of Quebec separation. The Parti Quebecois and the Liberals espouse their opinions on separation and federalism. Both clearly represent the bourgeois perspective and interests. But who talks about issues facing workers and youth? What are the socialist alternatives to the problems in Quebec?

Subject: (MARX) About the class struggle in Iraq
Date: Fri; 05 Mar 1999 04:50:52 PST
It was on the 7th of March 1991 when largely in Iraqi Kurdistan the long insurrectionary process that had shaken the whole of Iraq reached one of it's highest points. During this process the proletariat had expressed itself against the war and against all bourgeois forces in the region: the Ba'ath secret police Republican Guards nationalists local and religious authorities ... This struggle showed proletarians all over the world the only path to follow if wars are to be eliminated forever. Since then the international bourgeoisie has done all it can to repress the movement. The nationalists democrats from all tendencies humanitarian organisations the UN and ba'athists pacifists all different kinds of religious followers ... shared the job of crushing us. By concentrating on disarming and recruiting proletarians into nationalist militias they also sabotaged our internationalism and contributed to the local reorganisation of the State by arranging elections. Without doubt another aspect of the action aiming to crush us was the complete black-out by the worldwide media as regards the social situation in Iraq. What happened in Iraq doesn't only show the actuality of the contradiction capitalism/communism but its future. Everywhere the capitalistic inhumanity grows everywhere war is presented as an alternative to the current capitalistic crisis everywhere one can detect the beginnings of a communist answer to this one and all the barbarism of the capital. We address this precision to all those who think that "civilized" Europe is protected forever from the warlike barbarism that surged fifty years ago on this part of the world. It is useful to specify that the alternative "war or revolution" is the same everywhere and that the threat to see Europe turning into a vast battlefield is just as present as the one which hangs over the other places of the globe still spared by the military conflicts. "Here" also the war that the Capital leads against the proletariat can only grow until reaching the destructive intensity with which it took place "over there" in Iraq. And "here" also the only possible way to break the chains of this morbid system which leads us ineluctably to the war remains the struggle for revolution. The discussion around the lessons of the insurrection in Iraq stands in this framework. We call our readers to inform us of their opinions and criticisms about this particular question in order to develop together a community of struggle against war prefiguration of a real human community where the Capital the State the classes and the social relations based on exchange and money will finally have disappeared.

From: ( socappeal@easynet.co.uk )
BOLSHEVISM: THE ROAD TO REVOLUTION A history of the Bolshevik Party by Alan Woods http://www.marxist.com/bolshevism There have been many books and potted histories of Russia either written from an anti-Bolshevik perspective or its Stalinist mirror image which paint a false account of the rise of Bolshevism. For them Bolshevism is either an historical "accident" or "tragedy". or it is portrayed erroneously as the work of one great man (Lenin) who marched sinble-minded towards the October Revolution. Alan Woods in rejecting these "theses" reveals the real evolution of Bolshevism as a living struggle to apply the methods of Marxism to the peculiarities of Russia. Using a wealth of primary sources Alan Woods uncovers trhe fascinating growth and development of Bolshevism in pre-revolutionary Russia. In the next few months we intend to publish the whole book on-line ( http://www.marxist.com/bolshevism ). At the moment you can consult the introduction and the table of contents.

Subject: (MARX) New Book: Marx in Soho by Howard Zinn
New from South End Press Marx in Soho:=20 A Play on History Howard Zinn Don't you wonder: why is it necessary to declare me dead again and again? In this witty and insightful "play on history" Howard Zinn brings Karl Marx literally back to life to address a contemporary audience in Soho. Marx has agitated with the authorities of the afterlife for a chance to clear his name. Through a bureaucratic error however Marx is sent to Soho in New York rather than his old stomping ground in London to make his case. Marx in Soho is a brilliant introduction to Marx's life his analysis of society and his passion for radical change and the relevance of Marx's ideas for today. Activist and historian Howard Zinn is the author of A People's History of the United States and emeritus professor at Boston University. He is the recipient of the Eugene V. Debs and Lannan Foundation awards. Praise for Marx in Soho An imaginative critique of our society's hypocrisies and injustices, and an entertaining, vivid portrait of Karl Marx as a voice of humanitarion justice - which is perhaps the best way to remember him. -- Kirkus Reviews A cleverly imagined call to reconsider socialist theory...Zinn's point is well made; his passion for history melds with his political vigor to make this a memorable effort and a lucid primer for readers desiring a succinct, dramatized review of Marxism. -- Publishers Weekly Even in heaven it seems, Karl Marx is a troublemaker. But in the deft and loving hands of activist/author/historian Howard Zinn, the historical figure...is also a father, a husband and a futurist possessing a grand sense of humor. -- ForeWord A witty delight that will engage both new and old acquaintances of the Marxian corpus....even conservatives will find Zinn's [book]...an intelligent and diverting read. Recommended for academic and public libraries alike. -= - Library Journal Zinn has written a wonderful play that people should read, perform and use. -- Socialist Worker $12 paper ISBN 0-89608-593-7 88 pages To order call 1-800-533-8478 or send the form below to SEP 7 Brookline Street #1 Cambridge MA 02139-4146 USA.

What's New at Socialist Appeal's "In Defence of Marxism" web site http://www.marxist.com April 9th 1999 Letter from Belgrade http://www.marxist.com/Europe/dragan.html Here it looks like marxism lost the battle; abused to create a totalitarian regime and then cursed as a bad religion and thrown away. But, the final word hasn't been said yet - the cruel process of initial capital accumulation that is taking place in last few years under the mask of transition from socialism to democracy" and growing unsatisfaction with the rule of gangster-run parties and "opposition" (participating in exploitation and deception); marxism will eventually rise from the ashes because it is the only way to solve the existing antagonisms."

Its radioactive effects last for 4.5 billion years. There is increasing evidence that D.U. is partly responsible for "Gulf War Syndrome" and is causing genetic malformations amongst the Iraqi population. There is compelling evidence that D.U. ammunition was used by NATO in the 1995 bombing of Bosnia and some say it is also being used in the current bombing campaign in Yugoslavia.

Subject: marxjour : First strike against the war in Italy
Date: Fri; 23 Apr 99 17:47:18 +0000
From: Socialist Appeal ( socappeal@easynet.co.uk )
What's New at Socialist Appeal's "In Defence of Marxism" web site http://www.marxist.com April 23rd 1999 First strike against the war in Italy http://www.marxist.com/Europe/italystrike.html On 3rd April 100 000 people marched in a demonstration in Rome against the NATO bombing campaign in Yugoslavia. A week later another demonstration of over 50 000 took place. There is a lot of opposition to the NATO bombing among the workers and youth in Italy in spite of the government's support. There was a demonstration about 3 000 strong at the Aviano air base in Northern Italy. This is one of the bases the NATO warplanes are using. The demonstration was brutally attacked by the police who waded into the demonstrators with truncheons and fired tear-gas cannisters. There is widespread opposition to the bombing among the students but even more important have been the developments in the labour movement. On Thursday 22nd April over 600 shop stewards gathered in the Milan CGIL trade union headquarters to take part in a national assembly called by forty factory councils. The meeting called on the national leadership of the three main trade union federations (CGIL CISL and UIL) to organise a general strike against the war. They also decided to organise a series of mass meetings in the factories on the question. What happened in the town of Massa in Tuscany is an indication of how the movement could develop. The official unions CGIL CISL and UIL organised a four hour provincial general strike on 19th April. This was the first serious strike action called by the trade unions against the war. The national leadership seems less prepared to organise a serious movement but the pressure could build up especially if ground troops are sent in. The number of people on the demonstartion was 5 000. A large number of school teachers were there with a banner that had had some lines from a Bertold Brecht poem: "Among the vanquished the poor people went hungry among the victors the poor people went hungry." Prior to the demonstration teachers and students had organised meetings in the schools on the war. Apart from the teachers there were also blue collar workers from the factories government workers the pensioners union the railway workers and the workers from the marble quarries of Carrara. Significantly there was also a delegation on the demonstration from the SIULP (the police trade union!). All this took place despite attempts on the part of the PDS (Party of the Democratic Left one of the two parties that emerged from the split in the old Communist Party back in 1991) leaders to convince workers not to take part in the strike. As the provincial secretary of the CISL pointed out In taking this decision [to call the strike] I believe that the trade union movement has remained faithful to its traditions. The PDS led government is using all its energies to convince the workers and youth of Italy that the bombing is for a just cause but as the bombing intensifies and especially if ground troops are sent in opposition will grow. The strike in Massa may just be the beginning.

What's New at Socialist Appeal's "In Defence of Marxism" web site http://www.marxist.com April 28th 1999 On the mass organisations - Letter to the Russian Marxists http://www.marxist.com/Russia/grantletter.html The entire history of the international workers' movement in the twentieth century has furnished us with a wealth of material to show the way in which the working class and its organisations develop. From the study of the workers' movement over several decades, I drew the following inescapable conclusion: that when the mass of the workers enter the arena of struggle to change society, they inevitably gravitate, in the first instance, to the traditional mass organisations. The mass of the workers--and even the greater part of the advanced elements of the class--do not learn from books, but only from experience, and particularly the experience of great events. Where a strong and educated Marxist tendency is present, the process can be considerably shortened. This was the case with the Bolshevik Party in 1917.

Subject: (MARXJOUR): New edition of LINKS -- international journal of socialist renewal
New Links highlights crisis of neo-liberalism Issue number 12 of the socialist journal Links has just appeared. As is typical of Links it ranges around the world covering topics of importance to socialists and the labour movement in many countries. The theme of this issue is "capitalist crisis neo-liberal myths" -- an examination of the political outlook in the wake of the Asian economic crisis and the impact of such events on neo-liberal free market ideology. The economic factors at work in the crisis are examined by Allen Myers in a report that was adopted by the Democratic Socialist Party's (DSP) congress in January. This places the crisis in the context of the long-term period of relative stagnation of the world economy which set in in the early 1970s. Myers writes that the attempts of capitalist governments to manage the long downturn in a way that protects their major firms only accumulates the contradictions that a capitalist economy normally resolves through a recession which destroys significant amounts of capital. As the crisis intensifies he predicts there will be increasing talk of re-regulation of parts of the economy as a solution to economic problems. While superficially a retreat from neo-liberal ideology such schemes would fit easily into a framework of further state intervention to benefit capitalists at the expense of working people. James Petras well known especially for his writings on Latin America examines the aftermath of US imperialism's destabilisation campaigns against governments that it perceives as hostile to its interests. He contrasts Washington's willingness to spend huge sums in overthrowing such regimes with its not-at-all benign neglect of the countries concerned once it has achieved its immediate aims. The article looks specifically at the experience of three countries in this regard: Nicaragua Afghanistan and Russia. In a short but sharp article Canadian academic Michel Chossudovsky exposes the way in which international economic organisations like the World Bank deliberately misrepresent the extent of poverty especially but not exclusively in the Third World. Declining levels of poverty, including forecasts of future trends Chossudovsky writes are derived with a view to vindicating the `free market' policies and upholding the `Washington consensus' on macro-economic reform. The `free market' system is presented as the `solution', namely as an instrument of poverty alleviation. The impacts of macro-economic reform are denied. Two documents from the Philippines analyse the context of the global economic crisis and the opportunities and challenges it is creating for socialists in the Philippines. The documents come from the Socialist Party of Labour which was created late last year by a fusion of the Liga Sosyalista and the Rebolusyonaryong Partido ng Proletaryo (Revolutionary Party of the Proletariat). Two articles in this issue deal with the situation in Russia. Boris Kagarlitsky in The new periphery explores the devastation of the economy since the disappearance of the Soviet Union. He analyses the forces that are transforming Russia into an underdeveloped country with a backward economy typical of Third World nations. Green Left Weekly's Moscow correspondent Renfrey Clarke writes of the failure of Russia's `democrats': "Ten years after Russia's liberals emerged from their late-night kitchen debates to play an important role in politics the state of democracy and human rights in Russia is ... not much better than it was in the mid-1980s." Clarke examines the reasons for this failure which include both the character of the economy being created in Russia and the limited vision of the liberals. The role of socialists in the Australian women's liberation movement is portrayed in a feature by Margaret Allan. This surveys the entire period of the second wave of feminism beginning in the late 1960s. Allan presents the major debates and campaigns that have featured in that history and the positions and actions of the Communist Party of Australia the Democratic Socialist Party and others on the left. Theses on the class nature of the People's Republic of China is a resolution adopted by the recent DSP congress. This evaluates the evolution of the Chinese state in the light of both similarities and differences with the process of social counter-revolution in the Soviet Union. It concludes that the Chinese state can no longer in any sense be considered socialist: "It has become an instrument for the suppression of the resistance of the working class to the reintroduction and defence of capitalist property relations." A brief round-up of international workers' movement news concludes this issue of the aptly named journal of socialist renewal.

Date: Wed; 12 May 1999 10:28:39 +0200
Introduction This list has been created to provide a forum for serious debate between revolutionaries from different parts of the world and for the exchange of information about the struggles for national liberation and for socialism. It's standpoint is that of Marxism-Leninism that is to say scientific socialism. We emphasise Leninism because we recognise this as the only valid interpretation of Marxism in the imperialist epoch. This list stands in the proud tradition of the Third International and the struggle against modern revisionism. Ideologically it is fundamentally opposed to social democracy including Trotskyism which was correctly characterised by the ECCI in 1926 as a social democratic deviation. This list is an attempt to use the powerful medium of the Internet to further the struggle of the working class and its allies. The Marxist-Leninist list is a forum for the development and propagation of revolutionary theory. It is not a forum which will tolerate lies and slanders against great proletarian leaders. We stand in the tradition of Marx Lenin and Stalin and we are proud of this.

New Ocean Press booklet on Cuba's $181 billion lawsuit against the U.S. Government WASHINGTON ON TRIAL The People of Cuba versus The Government of the United States of America Introduction by David Deutschmann and Michael Ratner On May 31 1999 eight organizations representing the Cuban people issued a lawsuit against the Government of the United States. The claim seeks a total of $181.1 billion in damages for the loss of life and human injury as a result of U.S. acts of aggression against Cuba over the past 40 years. The lawsuit was filed at the Civil and Administrative Court of Law at the Provincial People's Court in Havana City. Cuba has based this claim on war crimes such as the Bay of Pigs invasion the use of biological warfare bombings and air attacks military provocations from the U.S. Naval Base at Guant=E1namo and support for terrorist actions. The Cuban legal action -- with social and mass organizations comprising almost the entire Cuban population as the plaintiffs -- has named the U.S. Government as the defendant in the claim. The lawsuit seeks compensation for the lives of 3 478 Cubans and injuries to a further 2 099 Cubans as a result of U.S. military aggression against the island. The Cuban lawsuit is made on behalf of eight popular organizations that comprise a major part of the Cuban population: Central Trade Union of Cuba (CTC) National Association of Small Farmers (ANAP) Federation of Cuban Women (FMC) Federation of University Students (FEU) Federation of Middle Level Education Students (FEEM) Jos=E9 Mart=ED Children's Organization Committees for the Defense of the Revolution (CDR) and the Association of Combatants of the Cuban Revolution (ACRC). A feature of "Washington on Trial" is an introduction by David Deutschmann and Michael Ratner where they review some of the international law issues posed by the Cuban lawsuit. They write: "Up to the present most legal action in the U.S.-Cuba conflict has been initiated by the United States against Cuba. This lawsuit on behalf of Cuban social and mass organizations does something both extraordinary and necessary: It puts Washington on trial. The Cuban claim for compensation against the U.S. Government allows Cuba the opportunity to present before the international community its evidence -- frequently based on declassified U.S. Government documents -- that Washington has a case to answer." David Deutschmann is the author of "International Law and the U.S.-Cuba Conflict" (forthcoming Spring 2000). Michael Ratner is an international human rights attorney at the Center for Constitutional Rights in New York.

Subject: (MARXJOUR): PKK leader Ocalan condemned to death

From: Socialist Appeal ( socappeal@easynet.co.uk )
What's New at "In Defence of Marxism" http://www.marxist.com June 30 1999 PKK leader Ocalan condemned to death The Kurdish leader of the PKK Abdullah Ocalan was yesterday found guilty of treason and separatism by a Turkish court and sentenced to death by hanging. Some European governments and politicians have expressed their concern and are asking Ankara to commute the sentence. This is a highly hypocritical demand as it was precisely the refusal of any of these "democratic" European governments to grant Ocalan asylum that landed him in a Turkish jail. The Italian and Greek governments are particularly responsible for this. Socialists all over the world must oppose this decision and fight to prevent the Turkish state from carrying through this sentence. Socialists support the just demands of the Kurdish people for democratic rights. But at the same time we must point out the failure of the tactics of the PKK to secure any advances in the struggle of the Kurdish people for freedom. We must make clear that the only way forward is an alliance of the Kurdish workers and youth with their ! ! Turkish brothers and sisters in the common struggle to overthrow capitalism. Only in the context of a revolutionary movement in Turkey Iran Irak and Syria can the Kurdish problem be resolved with the formation of a Socialist Federation of the whole region where the rights of national groups would be recognised. For a socialist analysis of the Kurdish problem its history and background and the policies of the PKK read the statement we published back in February when Ocalan was arrested: The arrest of Ocalan and the plight of Kurdish people http://www.marxist.com/MiddleEast/kurdistan.html also available in German: Die Verhaftung Öcalans und der kurdische Befreiungskampf http://www.marxist.com/MiddleEast/kurdistangerman.html --------------------------------------------------- Reproduction and circulation of these articles is encouraged as long as source is properly credited.

New book from Ocean Press -- "CHE IN AFRICA" CHE IN AFRICA Che Guevara's Congo Diary by William Galvez Introduction by Jorge Risquet Published by Ocean Press 1999 GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ Nothing illustrates the duration and intensity of the Cuban presence in Africa better than the fact that Che Guevara himself, at the prime of his life and the height of his fame, went off to fight in the guerrilla war in the Congo. In that fleeting, anonymous passage through Africa, Che Guevara was to sow a seed that no one will destroy. NELSON MANDELA Che Guevara's feats in our continent were of such magnitude that no prison or censorship could hide them from us. Che's life is an inspiration for every human being who loves freedom. Che's life is an inspiration for every human being who loves freedom. We will always honor his memory. Che in Africa is the previously untold story of Che Guevara's "lost year" in Africa. A year before his fateful Bolivia mission Che Guevara in 1965 led a group of guerrillas to support the Congolese liberation movement. Considerable speculation has always surrounded Guevara's disappearance from Cuba and why he went to fight in Africa. The story behind the Congo mission is now revealed in this book which includes Guevara's previously unpublished "Congo Diary." Guevara's diary assesses the role of figures within the African liberation movements among them Patrice Lumumba and Laurent Kabila leader of the 1997 overthrow of the Mobutu regime in Zaire (Congo). Author William Galvez quotes recently declassified CIA documents showing how the CIA assembled a mercenary band of white South Africans and others to pursue Guevara's guerrilla column. Che in Africa presents a generally unknown chapter in the anticolonial struggle and sheds light on events in Central Africa today.

What's new at "In Defence of Marxism http://www.marxist.com July 17th 1999 The First Shots of the Iranian Revolution http://www.marxist.com/MiddleEast/iranrevolution.html The mass demonstrations and riots in Iran are the first shots of the Iranian revolution. This article points out the importance of these events. Alan Woods underlines the need for the students to link up with the workers specialy the oil workers which were the key for the overthrow of the Shah 20 years ago. The article also explains the need to link democratic demands with a socialist programme. Iran is a key country and the events there will have a dramatic effect in the whole of the Middle East where most regimes are already in a very unstable situation in Afghanistan in Central Asia and far beyond.

We believe it is essential reading for any active worker or youth who wishes to understand both how the hated regime of the Shah was overthrown by a workers' revolution and how unfortunately that revolution was hijacked by the fundamentalist mullahs.

Subject: (MARXJOUR): IWGVT 2000 repeat call for papers
Date: Fri; 13 Aug 1999 11:14:41 +0100
This is a reminder; apologies for those who have already received it. We are now processing submissions and queries so if you have contacted us in the last three months you should expect to hear from us soon. ============================================================================ = International Working Group on Value Theory CALL FOR PAPERS Year 2000 Value Theory Mini-Conference Crystal City Hyatt Regency March 24th- March 26th 2000 ============================================================================ = Apologies for any cross-posting We invite you to the seventh "New Directions in Value/Price Theory" mini-conference organized by the International Working Group on Value Theory (IWGVT) to be held as part of the Eastern Economic Association (EEA) conference. Papers relating to the IWGVT's areas of interest are welcome and proposals for complete panels will be considered. The full call and instructions for submission are on our website at www.greenwich.ac.uk/~fa03/iwgvt. We can be contacted at Value.Theory@greenwich.ac.uk for information or informal discussion. Abstracts of individual papers or proposals for complete sessions are welcome > from May 1st onwards. Proposals for complete sessions should be made by August 1st 1999. The deadline for papers and accompanying material is November 1 1999. Papers must be complete when submitted but may consists of drafts or work in progress. Although this may seem stringent our experience in 1999 was that it greatly facilitated dialogue by making the papers available to participants in advance of the conference and also provided an opportunity for discussants to prepare considered responses. Authors are welcome to submit papers in their mother tongue. Completed papers need not be long papers and again we strongly encourage papers which revisit contributions made at past mini-conferences other conferences or previously published work. The IWGVT actively pursues collaboration and engagement with other currents of economic thought and welcomes proposals for joint sessions at the upcoming EEA. What is the IWGVT? ================== The IWGVT aims to promote pluralistic debate on concepts of value seeking particularly-but not exclusively-to deepen the discussion of value concepts appropriate to dynamic analysis and to end the unacceptable exclusion of the value theory of Karl Marx from existing debates. The principal justification which economics offers for excluding its foremost critic is the proposition that whatever the merits of his contribution on individual issues his concept of value is invalid because it leads to internal inconsistencies. A growing body of independent research shows that this argument is no longer sustainable. We conclude that the discussion on value should re-open without the presupposition of any established standard tradition or source of authority regarding either value or Marx. The IWGVT defends no particular theory of value beyond arguing that the concept itself is indispensable. It does believe it is possible to assess the merits of contesting theories in debate. It seeks to create an atmosphere for this debate-which does not at present exist-such that all value theories and all readings of value theorists may discuss on an equal footing referring in their support neither to the evidence of authority nor the conviction of doctrine but to reasoned and logical discussion based on textual evidence for readings and factual evidence for theories. Six successive mini-conferences have provided a widespread gratifying and international response to our initial appeal. The number of panels and panelists has grown steadily as has participation from those outside the United States. The IWGVT is beginning to be recognized as a forum for all those interested in the discussion of value irrespective of theoretical orientation.

That the May 5 Tripartite agreement placing security in East Timor in the hands of Indonesia has brought the East Timorese people to the edge of extermination; 2. That the responsibility for security and order given to the Indonesian government and security apparatus has not been carried according to the expectations of the international community; 3. That the presence of the Indonesian National Army (TNI) and Police (POLRI) in East Timor is worsening the situation with more civilians losing their lives; 4. That the TNI and Police have misused their authority and have taken sides with the militia to massacre and to carry out a scorched earth policy; 5. That the Military Emergency that the Indonesian government has declared is a purely cosmetic measure. This measure is aimed at isolating the Timorese people in their own country with the aim of being able to organise another referendum under the supervision of Asian Pacific nations and not the UN. 6. That the refugees crossing the East Timorese border are not doing so voluntarily especially not the pro-independence East Timorese people but are being forced to do so by the TNI and POLRI and that the East Timorese people are not being afforded protection from any quarter STANCE Based on these considerations the PST Delegation based in Jakarta states on behalf of the PST Central Committee: 1. Rejects the presence of the Indonesian military in East Timor as they are responsible for all the massacres and the total destruction of East Timor and its people; 2. That the responsibility for security that was given to the Indonesian government in particular the TNI and POLRI should be withdrawn as this situation is providing the opportunity for these forces to wreak revenge for the losses that they perceive they have suffered in East Timor; 3. Condemns the antidemocratic and unsportive attitude of the pro-autonomy forces that have been backed up by the TNI and POLRI; 4. Condemns all forms of killings and systematic destruction being carried out by the TNI Police and militia against the East Timorese people; 5. Condemns all forms of violence and coercion used by the TNI and POLRI against the East Timorese people to force them to leave their homeland; 6. Condemns the revenge being carried out by the TNI Police and Militia following their defeat I n the referendum; DEMANDS: The above stance leads us to make the following demands: 1. That the UN and international community take firm speedy and effective measures to force Indonesia the TNI and POLRI to withdraw > from East Timor and disband the militias; 2. To carry out economic and diplomatic sanctions against Indonesia if the violence and massacres continue; 3. To carry out the UN ultimatum to send an International Peacekeeping Force because the 48 hours have passed without any improvement in the situation instead the killings are more rampant and there are more refugees flooding across the border and the infrastructure of East Timor is being subjected to total paralysis; 4. That the Portuguese government be held responsible for the danger and destruction being inflicted on the East Timorese people because they signed the May 5 agreement which is bringing about the destruction of the East Timorese people; 5. That Portugal use all diplomatic means to convince the countries grouped in NATO to force Indonesia its TNI and POLRI to withdraw from East Timor in order to protect the East Timorese nation which is threatened by the violence and killings of TNI POLRI and militia in the region. 6. That all the humanitarian NGOs under the auspices of the UN (such as the UNHCR and others) render full assistance to the East Timorese refugees so that all their basic needs such as food and medicines and medical teams be met so that they can fully recover and finally return to their homes. Jakarta 9 September 1999 PST Delegation in Jakarta Antonio Lopes Chairperson. ______________________________ CENTRAL LEADERSHIP COMMITTEE OF THE PEOPLE'S DEMOCRATIC PARTY (KPP - PRD) Jl. Jend. Basuki Rahmat No. 7B Jakarta Timur Tel/fax 8561542 E-mail:prd@centrin.net.id Press Statement PRD's HEAD OFFICE BOMBED WITH MOLOTOV COCKTAILS BY SOME UNIDENTIFIED PEOPLE After two days of being terrorized by rocks thrown the head office of the PRD was finally attacked with Molotov cocktails and burned. According to an eyewitness from the block security guard named Begi this terror attack happened at 01.45 (twenty minutes after the last guest from Moestopo University had gone home). The bombing was done by some unidentified people driving a blue car with police number D 622 Z. Still according to the eyewitness this car was actually driven around the PRD's head office for about 5 times. The damage caused by this terror attack included: the front door and windows was burned window glass was broken one banner of the PRD was burned and also the electricity installation of the office was damaged. It can be seen clearly that the terror was done for political reasons. >From the damages caused by the burning and the process of the burning itself the terror was done by thugs paid by the New Order regime that for these long efforts by all ways to stop all political activities of PRD. We deemed that this terror is really related with the political activities taken by PRD especially the PRD's activities in recent days. First our discussion and political statements on the East Timor issue where the PRD supported the result of the ballot that was won by the independence group. Second our discussion political statements and mass actions in rejecting the National Safety and Security Law. However the terror will never stop the political activities of the PRD which aims to fight for and maintain real democracy in Indonesia. Actions of terror will even strengthen our belief that the New Order Regime and its next generation should be resisted until its defeat. For this terror we call for your solidarity support by making political statements or taking action on this issue.

What's new at "In Defence of Marxism http://www.marxist.com September 6th 1999 Perspectives for the Philippine Revolution http://www.marxist.com/Asia/philippines87.html We are republishing a document written in April 1987 on the Philippine Revolution. At that time a ferment of discussion had opened up in the Communist Party of the Philippines. This was a discussion document which had been presented as a contribution towards that debate. At the time it had a limited circulation but we believe that it will be of interest to Marxist activists internationally. As the document says it intends to address the following questions: What are the tasks of the revolution? "National democracy"? Socialist revolution? Which class will play the decisive role? What are the respective roles of the "national bourgeoisie" the peasants and the proletariat? What are the appropriate methods of struggle? What are the limits of guerrilla war? What was the nature of the so-called "EDSA revolution"? What attitude should be adopted towards the Cory government? Is the ruling class capable of solving or attenuating the urgent problems of society? What are the prospects of a victory of the guerrillas7 What kind of state would arise in that case? We think that many of these are still relevant for revolutionaries in different countries and therefore we would like to hear your comments or criticisms about it. We recommend to read this document in conjunction with "Marxism and the struggle against imperialism" ( http://www.marxist.com/theory/colrev.html ) ------------------------------------------------------ If you would like to be informed by email of new additions to the In Defence of Marxism web site send us an email to new@socappeal.easynet.co.uk with "subscribe What's new" as the message body.

To: chiapas95-english@eco.utexas.edu >From The Zapatista Front of National Liberation (FZLN). Mexico. To Organizing Committee of the 2nd American Encuentro For Humanity And Against Neoliberalism To Organizations and individuals who are being called from Belem across the entire continent to meet with us in Belem do Pará Brazil. To The peoples of the American Continent: Brothers and Sisters: We received your Call to the 2nd American Encuentro For Humanity and Against Neoliberalism to be held from December 6 to 11 1999 in the City of Belem Pará Brazil. The beauty of the text could alone sustain and be in keeping with the abundance of dreams promised by the extremely rich diversity of Brazilian social movements and their struggles. By having you as our hosts the intergalactics of all Our America will be able to feel at ease and we will be inspired to share the experiences ideas and most daring intentions for humanity and against (already in itself old) neoliberalism. The natural beauty of Belem / Pará and the struggle of its residents to socialize it points to a scenario that augurs a true encuentro of Our America with itself that is a truly wonderful encuentro of those who are seeking and struggling to make their dreams reality. Because of that from La Realidad to Belem a dream is drawn: that of Our America being free democratic and just. It has been three years now since the 1st American Encuentro For Humanity and Against Neoliberalism held in Chiapas Mexico and we are happy that Brazil that country of continental dimensions and great variety of social struggles is offering us the opportunity to join together now in Belem do Pará in order to continue the necessary coming together that will allow us to build among all of us the path of a future with peace. We Mexican zapatistas will be coming to Belem with the conviction that we will meet everyone there: social movements and organizations citizens religious women homosexuals lesbians young persons unionists campesinos indigenous blacks political wings of various shapes all in order to confirm the breadth diversity and strength of our hopes. We Mexican zapatistas are now beginning to prepare for our attendance and participation in the 2nd American Encuentro. To all of our brothers and sisters of the continent we are saying: let us walk together to Belem. We are going ready to lend our modest contribution to the common struggle of Our America. But we are going above all with the intention of listening to and learning from all of your efforts. To our brothers and sisters of Mexico we are calling you to build together a National Promotional Committee for the 2nd American Encuentro For Humanity and Against Neoliberalism that will be in charge of the preparations for the participation of a broad Mexican delegation open to any organization or individual who wants to participate in this encuentro. Together we shall try to decipher the unknowns of this end of millenium we shall share the ideas that move us and inspire us we shall share and be inspired by the experiences of resistance and struggle against inequality against oppression and against exclusion battles which our American peoples fight every day. And in that way we shall continue to weave the immense net of all us who are confronting the cynicism of a system which knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. To our Brazilian compañeros to our compañeros of Belem do Pará we are grateful for your generous willingness to receive - in your enormous house in solidarity - a continent that with all its wounds will arrive willing to be a dignified and human future. Be assured that from this moment on we Mexican zapatistas will contribute all of our efforts towards the success of this effort of American unity. Liberty! Justice! Democracy!

From: Socialist Appeal ( socappeal@easynet.co.uk )
What's new at "In Defence of Marxism http://www.marxist.com September 8th 1999 Northern Ireland's impasse http://www.marxist.com/Europe/nireland899.html In July Northern Ireland exploded into violence again. Petrol bombs blazing buildings and RUC brutality against protesters were all in evidence in the wake of the Apprentice Boys parade in Derry.This article takes a general view at the present state of the "peace" process. Socialist Appeal September 1st 1999 We also republish: Workshop Talks ("Socialism made easy") http://www.marxist.com/classics/connolly/workshoptalks.html This marvellous little pamphlet by James Connolly has introduced millions of workers to the basic ideas of socialism. It remains one of the best simple rebuttals of all the arguments that come up over and over again against socialism. "Socialism is not practical"..."Socialism is contrary to religion"..."Socialism will destroy freedom"..."Socialism means confiscation". Here are the answers. Further reading on Ireland: Connolly and the Easter Uprising http://www.marxist.com/History/Connolly.html This article written by Ted Grant in 1966 deals with the lessons from the 1916 Easter Uprising and the role of the great Irish Marxist Connolly. Nowadays all sections of Irish society in the 26 counties hypocritically give support to the "brave and undying heroism of Connolly." The Irish capitalists pretend to honour him. Connolly would have spit contemptuously in their faces. He fought them ever since he attained manhood in the interests of the Irish workers and of International Socialism. Labour and Ireland http://www.marxist.com/History/history.html#labireland In a short series of articles Cain O'Mahoney examines labour's role in Northern Ireland through history and the lessons that must be learnt. Northern Ireland Peace Agreement: Can the Deal Work? http://www.marxist.com/Europe/nireland.html The proposals that have emerged from the Northern Ireland peace process have been hailed as an historic breakthrough. Tony Blair has been lauded with praise for his 'peacemaking' role. Characters like David Trimble who led the Orangemen at Drumcree have received praise upon praise for their bravery. But what does any of this mean for the working class people of Ireland who have been subjected to decades of sectarian rule violence intimidation and ruined lives? Can it really bring peace? May 1998 Northern Ireland: new developments in the peace process http://www.marxist.com/Europe/peace.html Recent events in Northern Ireland have shown the volatility and underlying weakness inherent in the 'peace process.' The assasination of loyalist Billy Wright leader of the the UVF breakaway group the LVF seemed to throw the whole process into reverse. Loyalist prisoners in the Maze prison withdrew their support for the 'talks'. This article by Socialist Appeal's editorial board analyses the situation. January 15 1998 Ireland after the ceasefire 1994 http://www.marxist.com/Europe/Ireland.html The announcement of a ceasefire by the IRA raised some important questions for all socialists. This pamphlet written at that time defends the stand of Marxism and a socialist approach to the situation. ------------------------------------------------------ If you would like to be informed by email of new additions to the In Defence of Marxism web site send us an email to new@socappeal.easynet.co.uk with "subscribe What's new" as the message body.

From: Socialist Appeal ( socappeal@easynet.co.uk )
What's new at "In Defence of Marxism http://www.marxist.com September 6th 1999 In Defence of Marxism web site call for urgent action: The massive rejection of the Indonesian occupation of East-Timor in a UN sponsored referendum is being challenged by what the BBC correctly described as a "full scale military uprising". The pro-integration militias who are just an extension of the Indonesian Army (TNI) now are occupying the whole of East-Timor. They are deporting the local population who voted for independence by tens of thousands. By hacking burning and shooting they are terrorising the Maubere people out of their villages and cities. Their aims are clear: the military reoccupation of East-Timor and the liquidation of the independence movement.The United Nations is powerless. Again it betrayed its promises and makes only pathetic calls for order to be restored by the...Indonesian Army itself. Only a united movement of the workers peasant and the student of East Timor Indonesia and the countries of the Pacific can defend the result of the referendum. We support the call for the immediate withdrawal of the Indonesian troops and the disbanding of the militias. We call on the labour movement to participate in the actions of protest and put their respective governments under pressure to break all links with the Indonesian government. Read our political analysis: East Timor: militias and military challenge independence vote http://www.marxist.com/Asia/easttimor.html The overwhelming majority of the Timorese population voted in a UN sponsored referendum to end the 25 year long Indonesian military occupation. Now the militias and the army are trying to challenge these results. Jean Duval September 6th 1999.

Barak promised to withdraw from Lebanon in 15 months and honour the Wye river agreement by October. However the situation simply marks a new stage in the conflict between Zionism and imperialism and the Arab masses. Rob Sewell looks at the background to this conflict the role of British imperialism in the formation of Israel the Israel arab wars the formation of the PLO the role of the PLO in Jordan and Lebanon the Palestinian intifada and the birth of the current Palestinian authority > from a socialist point of view.

That the May 5 Tripartite agreement placing security in East Timor in the hands of Indonesia has brought the East Timorese people to the edge of extermination; 2. That the responsibility for security and order given to the Indonesian government and security apparatus has not been carried according to the expectations of the international community; 3. That the presence of the Indonesian National Army (TNI) and Police (POLRI) in East Timor is worsening the situation with more civilians losing their lives; 4. That the TNI and Police have misused their authority and have taken sides with the militia to massacre and to carry out a scorched earth policy; 5. That the Military Emergency that the Indonesian government has declared is a purely cosmetic measure. This measure is aimed at isolating the Timorese people in their own country with the aim of being able to organise another referendum under the supervision of Asian Pacific nations and not the UN. 6. That the refugees crossing the East Timorese border are not doing so voluntarily especially not the pro-independence East Timorese people but are being forced to do so by the TNI and POLRI and that the East Timorese people are not being afforded protection from any quarter STANCE Based on these considerations the PST Delegation based in Jakarta states on behalf of the PST Central Committee: 1. Rejects the presence of the Indonesian military in East Timor as they are responsible for all the massacres and the total destruction of East Timor and its people; 2. That the responsibility for security that was given to the Indonesian government in particular the TNI and POLRI should be withdrawn as this situation is providing the opportunity for these forces to wreak revenge for the losses that they perceive they have suffered in East Timor; 3. Condemns the antidemocratic and unsportive attitude of the pro-autonomy forces that have been backed up by the TNI and POLRI; 4. Condemns all forms of killings and systematic destruction being carried out by the TNI Police and militia against the East Timorese people; 5. Condemns all forms of violence and coercion used by the TNI and POLRI against the East Timorese people to force them to leave their homeland; 6. Condemns the revenge being carried out by the TNI Police and Militia following their defeat I n the referendum; DEMANDS: The above stance leads us to make the following demands: 1. That the UN and international community take firm speedy and effective measures to force Indonesia the TNI and POLRI to withdraw > from East Timor and disband the militias; 2. To carry out economic and diplomatic sanctions against Indonesia if the violence and massacres continue; 3. To carry out the UN ultimatum to send an International Peacekeeping Force because the 48 hours have passed without any improvement in the situation instead the killings are more rampant and there are more refugees flooding across the border and the infrastructure of East Timor is being subjected to total paralysis; 4. That the Portuguese government be held responsible for the danger and destruction being inflicted on the East Timorese people because they signed the May 5 agreement which is bringing about the destruction of the East Timorese people; 5. That Portugal use all diplomatic means to convince the countries grouped in NATO to force Indonesia its TNI and POLRI to withdraw from East Timor in order to protect the East Timorese nation which is threatened by the violence and killings of TNI POLRI and militia in the region. 6. That all the humanitarian NGOs under the auspices of the UN (such as the UNHCR and others) render full assistance to the East Timorese refugees so that all their basic needs such as food and medicines and medical teams be met so that they can fully recover and finally return to their homes. Jakarta 9 September 1999 PST Delegation in Jakarta Antonio Lopes Chairperson. ______________________________ CENTRAL LEADERSHIP COMMITTEE OF THE PEOPLE'S DEMOCRATIC PARTY (KPP - PRD) Jl. Jend. Basuki Rahmat No. 7B Jakarta Timur Tel/fax 8561542 E-mail:prd@centrin.net.id Press Statement PRD's HEAD OFFICE BOMBED WITH MOLOTOV COCKTAILS BY SOME UNIDENTIFIED PEOPLE After two days of being terrorized by rocks thrown the head office of the PRD was finally attacked with Molotov cocktails and burned. According to an eyewitness from the block security guard named Begi this terror attack happened at 01.45 (twenty minutes after the last guest from Moestopo University had gone home). The bombing was done by some unidentified people driving a blue car with police number D 622 Z. Still according to the eyewitness this car was actually driven around the PRD's head office for about 5 times. The damage caused by this terror attack included: the front door and windows was burned window glass was broken one banner of the PRD was burned and also the electricity installation of the office was damaged. It can be seen clearly that the terror was done for political reasons. >From the damages caused by the burning and the process of the burning itself the terror was done by thugs paid by the New Order regime that for these long efforts by all ways to stop all political activities of PRD. We deemed that this terror is really related with the political activities taken by PRD especially the PRD's activities in recent days. First our discussion and political statements on the East Timor issue where the PRD supported the result of the ballot that was won by the independence group. Second our discussion political statements and mass actions in rejecting the National Safety and Security Law. However the terror will never stop the political activities of the PRD which aims to fight for and maintain real democracy in Indonesia. Actions of terror will even strengthen our belief that the New Order Regime and its next generation should be resisted until its defeat. For this terror we call for your solidarity support by making political statements or taking action on this issue.

What's new at "In Defence of Marxism http://www.marxist.com September 10th 1999 Wall Street: a total eclipse in sight http://www.marxist.com/economy/eclipse.html The US stock market has reached new highs. By any definition it is fantastically valued. Michael Roberts looks at the reasons behind the speculative fever and its relationship with the real economy and concludes that a total eclipse is not far away.

Subject: (MARXJOUR): The end of the list
[My English is not very good but I think you can understand me.] When we begun Marxjour List in February 96 there still were little presence of marxist ideas on the Web. We hoped that Marxjour mailing list and the links it could create would enable us to strengthen the efforts of Marxists who were all too often isolated in their efforts. Today the presence of marxism on the Web is really important. The circulation of ideas goes more dully than we would like and it takes other ways. We think that Marxjour List was useful at his beginning. Today it has not sense. So that since today we finish the operation of the list. Surely we will meet in other more interesting places. September 27 1999. --- Marxjour List Moderator e-mail address: owner-marxjour@ccc.uba.ar Marxjour List Moderator e-mail address: owner-marxjour@ccc.uba.ar ------------------------ Marxjour List e-mail address: marxjour@ccc.uba.ar _________________________ Marxjour List Homepage: http://www.oocities.com/CapitolHill/3061
