Why Jeremy Corbyn Should Be Proud to be a Called a ‘Communist’ (But Probably Isn’t!)

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Noel Gallagher’s latest outburst, might be a ploy to ‘mainstream’ Jeremy Corbyn’s Scientific Socialist tendencies. Noel Gallagher, in his youth, was well-known for his own ‘Communistic’ outbursts, and part of his fame stems from his distinctly ‘proletariat’ approach to handling the music industry that made him rich, and the media that made him famous. One thing is for sure, Jeremy Corbyn should be proud to be called a ‘Communist’, but from the indignant response of the bourgeois left (which includes the Labour Party), and the vacuous prattling of the mindless rightwing press, it is obvious that those around him consider this an ‘insult’. There is nothing insulting about caring for humanity and striving (through the use of ‘Scientific Socialism’) to eradicate poverty, war and disease. The problem for the bourgeoisie is that this progressive process would also mean an end to that parasitic class, and it is this fear of the loss of privilege and wealth that drives the continuous (and highly misinformed) campaign against Communism. Ever since the Communist Party founded the British Labour Party, the bourgeois establishment has striven to infiltrate it, and convert it to its own hatefilled and greed-orientated ideology. This bourgeois project has been very successful and is almost complete. A keen-eyed observer knows something is afoot, when the veteran Labour Party ‘Socialist’ – Dennis Skinner – records in his biography that he visited the Soviet Union (as part of an all expenses paid union visit to Moscow in his youth), but he ‘refused’ to visit the tomb of Lenin in Red Square! This evidence may be added to such bourgeois (left) Labour figures such as Tony Benn, George Galloway and Ken Livingstone, to mention just a few, all of whom have made a career out of denigrated the Soviet Union and enthusiastically joining with the Bourgeois State in its propagation of US-generated Cold War lies. I doubt very much that Jeremy Corbyn is a Communist, or even a Marxist for that matter. He grew out of the Labour bourgeois left along with Benn and co, and I further doubt that his views differ from those of his peers. Whilst talking about saving the NHS, Corbyn has said nothing about the Welfare System, and has omitted completely any mention of raising taxes during the next Labour Party government. The reality is simple; no tax raises, no redistribution of wealth, no Welfare State and no NHS. In the meantime, Labour Party duplicity apart – the Communist Movement has done much to progress humanity, and all those ignorant right wingers and fascists have Communists to thank for the 8 hour day and basic working rights. The defeat of international fascism during the 1930’s and 1940’s can be added to this comprehensive list!

Paul Robeson: Communists Should Not Apologise!

North Korea: Otto Warmbier (1994-2017)

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The United States of America pursues a political path that is thoroughly anti-Socialist and anti-Communist, with this anti-Working Class policy being codified, normalised and intensified after WWII, and the development of a Cold War pseudo-history that was designed to misrepresent the Soviet Union, Communist China, and any nation that has undergone a Socialist Revolution. Of course, North Korea has attracted a strong vitriol from the US propagandists, particularly in the light of the US Military defeat inflicted in North Korea by the North Korean Military and its Chinese Volunteer Army allies during the Korean War (1950-1953), with the US Military nearly losing South Korea as a result. The US government – whether Democrat or Republican – will not rest until all vestiges of Working Class self-assertiveness is wiped-out across the world, and US-style predatory capitalism rules the world. US foreign policy falsely believes that Communist China will not come to the aid of North Korea, if the US attacks North Korea. In fact, the Chinese language internet (Baidu) is littered with official and unofficial texts clearly stating that Communist China will ‘defend the Socialist Revolution’ in North Korea, if North Korea is attacked by the US (or any of its allies). The US is misleading the Western world when it makes such irrational and blatantly ‘untrue’ propaganda statements, and hiding the truth that the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) will ‘annex’ North America and put an end to its ridiculous capitalist system – and in so doing, bring Socialism and peace to the world! Make no mistake, Communist China will not allow North Korea to be invaded, and capitalism brought to its borders.

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Therefore, anything the US government states must be assumed to be ‘lies’ until proven otherwise. In the unusual case of Otto Warmbier, for instance, the American (University of Virginia) student who visited North Korea on a five day new year tour during late December and early January 2016, and who was caught on CCTV ‘stealing’ a poster from a hotel wall (containing Communist statements), the Trump Administration has been ranting and raving stating Otto Warmbier was ‘beaten’ to death – whilst the US medical report (available for all to see online) clearly states that there was no evidence of any physical damage to his head or body. The CCTV footage shows Otto Warmbier stealing the sign from a restricted part of the hotel on January 1st, 2016, and he was arrested on January 2nd, 2016. Otto Warmbier was tried and convicted for the theft of a political sign from a restricted area of the hotel. Evidence at his trial included his confession, CCTV footage, fingerprint evidence, and witness testimony. Unusually, a press conference was held on February 29th, 2016, where Otto Warmbier confirmed his confession – stating that he was charged with this task by a ‘church’ that he and his family belong to in the US. He stated that the church required the sign (or something similar) because it considered ‘Communism’ to be ‘evil’ and the sign would be placed in the church so that everyone could ‘pray’ for the downfall of the North Korean Communist System, and replaced with US-style capitalism. This part of Otto Warmbier’s statement exists all over the Chinese Language internet – which favourably carries North Korean news articles. However, these articles also state that the church involved has since stated it does not know Otto Warmbier or his family. The English language wikipage, of course, provides a pro-US narrative and will not include the full text of Otto Warmbier’s confession.

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Bear in mind that the US currently operates the biggest prison slave labour force in the world when assessing the following details. The only country that imprisons and exploits its own population is the USA. Now, On March 16th, 2016, Otto Warmbier was to be sentenced to 15 years re-education through hard labour (for a crime against the North Korean State). On June 12th, 2017, North Korea released Otto Warmbier into US custody due to ill health. After complaining of stomach pains (referred to as food poisoning) he apparently took a sleeping pill and refused to wake-up. He was still in this semi-comatosed state when he arrived back in the US, although the medical examiners (at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center) could not find any traces of food poisoning, or evidence of food poisoning. Otto Warmbier died in the hospital at 14:20hrs on June 19th, 2017, at the age of 22 years old. North Korean medical records suggest that he was in this state from around April, 2016, with North Korean MRI scans revealing brain damage due to oxygen deficiency in the brain. Of course, hundreds of people die everyday within the US prison through ‘accidents’ and ‘assaults’ carried-out by other inmates or guards. Others die of illness or injury due to inadequate or non-existent medical care, whilst others are quite literally worked to death but the US and capitalist media remain silent and the UN refuses to investigate. Chinese language texts state that Otto Warmbier received the best ‘free’ medical care within the North Korean Communist System – equivalent to that of a millionaire in the US.  He was not mishandled or brutalised, but his behaviour was very suspicious.

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Also played-down by the Western, capitalist press, was the manner in which Otto Warmbier expertly eluded hotel security and made his way into a ‘restricted’ part of the hotel – as if well trained for a mission to extract a specific North Korean sign. The only mistake he made was not being aware of the surveillance cameras that caught him in the act. In the meantime, it has been revealed that Otto Warmbier is of Jewish ethnicity, and that his family supports Zionist Israel. This raises questions as to whether Otto Warmbier was on an Israeli secret mission to interfere with North Korean stability in some way (or simply ‘training’ for more elaborate missions later on) – the reason why he was found guilty of a crime against the North Korean State. Finally, it is implied in Chinese language texts that Otto Warmbier died as a result of medical negligence in the US – due to delays caused by arguments over who was going to pay his medical bills.

Clara Zetkin (1857-1933) – Founder of International Women’s Day (March 8)

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Working class women all over the world have been agitating for change and revolution for hundreds of years. International Women’s Day was established in 1910 by German Communist Clara Zetkin, at the International Conference of Socialist Women in Copenhagen, and falls annually on March 8th. This marks the World Day of the struggle of the female proletariat for its rights and freedom from capitalist oppression. Clara Zetkin was one of the prominent leaders of the International Women’s Communist Movement. Particularly emphasized was the class content of the holiday. Since 1911, March 8 began to be celebrated around the world. In Petrograd in 1917, women taking direct strike action led to the February Revolution, and then the October Revolution.

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Clara Zetkin,after interviewing Lenin in 1920, was a recipient of the Order of the Red Banner (1927), and the Order of Lenin (1932) for her ongoing leftwing political activity. When Adolf Hitler rose to power in 1933, Clara Zetkin had to flee to the Soviet Union for safety. However, not long after arriving, she succumbed to old age and died at 75 years old. Her remains were interned into the Kremlin Wall – such was the value of her life work. In the Soviet Union, March 8th became the recognised day of the women’s-revolutionary action, working for freedom from capitalism and the enslavement by patriarchal moral dogmas and moral taboos. This day united all the workers of the entire world, against the bourgeoisie,and its wars, poverty and fascism. This took on an explosive nature during the 1960’s, that saw women everywhere throwing Molotov cocktails at the forces of the bourgeois system, and joining with men in a concerted attack upon capitalism! March 8th still has this power today, and all women and girls should educate themselves and rise-up against tyranny! Resist the capitalist system and do not allow the defaming of International Women’s Day as just another powerless bourgeois fetish. Remember the battles of the 19th and 20th centuries for the right of women to work, to have decent working conditions, an 8 hour day, and realistic wages!

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Women! Against poverty, violence and war, for revolution and socialism – unite!

Translator’s Note:  Paul Robeson is one of the greatest intellectuals the US has ever produced, despite its Eurocentric racism and pathological dislike of Blackness, Socialism and Communism. Paul Robeson was popular amongst US workers (of all ethnicities), and was a true ‘Internationalist’.  He stood-up to White US tyranny – and when he met with US President Truman, he demanded that anti-lynching laws be passed, as a means to stop rabid and hate-filled White people from murdering Black people through illegal torture and execution (which included hanging from trees, lamp posts and buildings).  Truman immediately halted the interview and had Robeson removed – refusing to help in anyway.  Although the US embarked on a Cold War strategy of fabrication and lies about the USSR, Paul Robeson would not change his view that Soviet Communism was better than US capitalism.  Finally, even today, Paul Robeson is treated with respect within Communist China, and this short article links him to the Chinese National Anthem.  ACW  5.8.2016

During the 1940’s, the greatly renowned African-American singer Paul Robeson, performed ‘March of the Volunteer’ all over the USA, which includes the powerful and poignant line:

‘Stand Up!  The People Will Nolonger Be Slaves!’

This song was written over 80 years ago, and since that time, its inspiring and revolutionary lyrics and majestic melody, have resonated across the length and breadth of China and the world.  Recently, the track entitled ‘Song of the Country – March of the Volunteers – National Anthem’ has been re-recorded and re-released in China.  As a distinct piece of inspirational music, it was originally written in the 1934 as part of Communist China’s anti-Japanese War effort.  This was a terrible time when the Chinese nation faced extermination at the hands of a brutal enemy – it was a matter of life and death for the Chinese people.  The anthem ‘March of the Volunteers’, was originally featured in the film entitled ‘Wind and clouds – Sons and Daughters’, with its lyrics written by Tian Han (田汉), and a musical accompaniment arranged by the composer Nie Er (聂耳).  This film was made in Shanghai – so it is from Shanghai that China’s National Anthem is known to have originated.

Before the establishment of New China, the ‘March of the Volunteers’ inspired the Chinese masses to rise-up against the forces of imperialism that were ripping the country apart, and destroying the Chinese people.  Together with the revolutionary bugle call, this anthem called for all the Chinese people to fight together to earn their independence and freedom from tyranny!  After the successful Chinese Communist Revolution in 1949, ‘March of the Volunteers’ became the National Anthem of China, and not only united the various ethnic groups to build Socialism within China, but its anti-imperialist ethos spread across the world to inspire all oppressed peoples to fight back against imperialist tyranny!  The anthem encourages all peoples to forge an indomitable spirit, and never give-up, no matter how powerful are the imperialist forces arrayed before the masses.  This revolutionary attitude has enabled New China to forge ahead in the world, and breath a new vigour into Chinese culture.

起来!不愿做奴隶的人们……

20世纪40年代,美国著名黑人歌唱家保罗·罗伯逊在美国到处演唱《义勇军进行曲》。

“起来!不愿做奴隶的人们……”

这字字铿锵、句句雄壮的歌词伴随着那激昂的旋律,响彻在中华大地和世界各地已经80年。近日,《国之歌——从<义勇军进行曲>到国歌》画册即将首发。

我们的国歌《义勇军进行曲》,是一首抗日救亡歌曲,诞生于20世纪30年代中华民族生死存亡的危急关头。《义勇军进行曲》是电影《风云儿女》的主题歌,由田汉作词、聂耳作曲。《风云儿女》是在上海创作、摄制和首映的,《义勇军进行曲》首版唱片也是在上海灌制的,所以说,我们的国歌《义勇军进行曲》就诞生在上海。

新中国建立前,《义勇军进行曲》成为近代中华民族反抗帝国主义侵略、争取民族独立解放的战斗号角;新中国建立后,《义勇军进行曲》成为全国各族人民建设社会主义祖国的强大精神力量。《义勇军进行曲》唱出了中华民族自强不息、不屈不挠的进取精神,永远激励中国人民为实现中华民族的伟大复兴而奋勇前进。
