The French workers are on the move

The magnificent movement of the French workers is an inspiration to the workers of all Europe and the world. It shows the real face of the French working class. Strikes forced the closure of all six of the Total oil group's refineries, threatening fuel shortages. Eleven out of the 12 refineries in France have now been affected by strike action. In the oil terminal port of Fos-Lavera near Marseilles, the strike is now in its eighteenth day, leaving oil tankers stranded at sea unable to unload their cargoes.

Denmark: 26 revolutionary Marxists expelled from the SUF!

Last week a special conference of the SUF was held where 26 Marxists were expelled. It was clear that the reformist wing of the SUF could not tolerate the growing influence of Marxist ideas within the SUF. A Left Opposition has now been launched to win the SUF back to its founding ideas of revolutionary socialism.

Seizure of British sailors by Iran -- Who is provoking who?

Last Friday we were told by the capitalist mass media of another so-called Iranian crime. We were "informed" that the Iranian state had kidnapped 15 British sailors and marines who were engaged in routine boarding operations of merchant shipping in Iraqi territorial waters. The real question to be asked is not whether the British sailors were in Iranian or Iraqi waters. The real question is who benefits from this "provocation". The incident would seem to fit in well with the plans that imperialism has to strike at Iran's nuclear development plan.
