Blogger’s Note: The death toll is rising because many of the people who survived were shot at close-range – multiple times – with high velocity
These are a few pages from the Cuba Solidarity Campaign Magazine dated Winter 2022-2023.
This is all part of what happens within ethnic Chinese homes and living spaces. Outside, there will be martial arts performances which will include lion, dragon and phoenix dances to bring good look – whilst families meet to celebrate together! In China there is now a two-week holiday with various traditional rituals on certain days! As China moves toward ‘Socialism’ – people are changing and becoming more modern and scientifically minded – and this leads to knew interpretations of reality and historical processes! This is a good thing as dangerous superstitions are abandoned, traditions are clarified and made safe and easily shareable, and Chinese people develop ‘Internationalist’ attitudes and tendencies!
Clara Zetkin was sent by Rosa Luxemburg to set Lenin straight over issues of the rights of women – and the direction and tone of the Revolution in general! Rosa Luxemburg – like many adherents of the failed Second International – disagreed with Lenin and his ‘Third International and suggested the Revolutionary Movement should cooperate with the existing Bourgeois status quo to a greater extent, and back away from the idea of ‘overthrowing’ the capitalist system! In this regard, and when taking these attitudes into account, Rosa Luxemburg sailed very close to the Trotskyite position of collaboration with reaction. Indeed, she would eventually be murdered by one of her former students – a tragic end that reveals the limitations of her attitudes. Below is an English translation of a text originally written in the German language by Clara Zetkin recalling her memories of a number of discussions, she had with Lenin during late 1920 in Moscow as the Russian Civil War was still raging and Lenin (and the Communist Party) were planning the forming of large federal Socialist State as a means to generating the conditions for a better form of military self-defence from attack by the capitalist world. During early 1918, Revolutionary Russia had been invaded by Imperial Germany and six of her Allies, and by the UK, US and twelve of their Allies! This war would last from 1918-1921 and cost the Russian people 10.5 million casualties! Imperial Japan would only abandon Vladivostok during October 1922 – just before the forming of the ‘Union of Soviet Socialist Republics’ (USSR) on December 30th, 1922! Meanwhile, far from telling Lenin what to do or think, Clara Zetkin found herself converted by his intelligence and insight and returned to Germany informing all and sundry that Lenin was right, and that Rosa Luxemburg should listen and learn from Lenin! Marxist-Leninist ‘Feminism’ is the only truly ‘Revolutionary’ path for women and is very different to the ‘Bourgeois’ mock-feminism that abounds today! For women to be truly ‘free’ – predatory capitalism must be overthrown completely and there can be no compromise whatsoever on this point! Anyone woman that compromises with capitalism is a traitor to the Revolutionary cause!
All Palestinian people hold sincere affections for the Chinese people, he said, noting that China’s positions on the international stage are fair and just, and its initiatives and propositions are positive and constructive.
Pointing out that Palestine stands firmly with China, Abbas reaffirmed Palestine’s steadfast commitment to the one-China principle and firm support for China’s just position on issues related to Taiwan, Hong Kong and Xinjiang.
Palestine firmly supports and actively participates in Belt and Road cooperation and stands ready to work with China to continue strengthening cooperation in all areas, Abbas said, adding that Palestine looks forward to working with China to make the first China-Arab States Summit on Friday a success.
FIFA is essentially a bourgeois charity that makes billions – like any good capitalist charity – but the US cannot influence or penetrate its inner workings, and this is why it is attempting to ‘legally’ infiltrate and ‘colonise’ its left-leaning mechanisms – so that it can direct them toward the political right-wing! The US is stating that only countries it agrees with should host the World Cup – and this is the essence of US fascism which we must fight and defeat! Russia in 2018 (anti-Ukrainian Neo-Nazi) and Qatar in 2022 (anti-Israeli Zionism) is all part of a US-plot instigated by FIFA! If only it were! Prior to 1991, the CCCP, and other Communist countries such as East Germany, Poland, Romania, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia and Hungary used to routinely qualify for the World Cup Finals! In England the British working-class took to supporting North Korea during the 1966 (UK) World Cup Finals! They chanted:
North Korea, North Korea!
Over Here, Over Here!
Juche and Sorghum!
Sitting in the Sun!
Nobody knew exactly what ‘Juche’ and ‘Sorghum’ actually meant – but the general consensus was that it must be better than the misery of living within predatory capitalism!
