    Thousands of Israelis gathered once again on Saturday evening, September 5, as they have during the past three months, outside the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s official residence in Jerusalem and at other locations around the country, calling on the prime minister to resign. Among the protestors: several Hadash and Communist Party activists.

  • Fascism: A rising danger

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said, “November is about defeating fascism.” She’s right.

    While we shouldn’t take anything Trump says at face value, since he often says things that are lies, distortions, or just outrageous in order to distract, the fact that he has already repeatedly cast doubt on the results of the fall elections is worrisome. He is anxious to prevent anyone not part of his base from voting by mail, the safest way during a pandemic; he and his press secretary have already promised that he may not accept the results of the election; the “remarks” that he deserves a third term and that he should be “president for life” are stunning — all point to his certainty that he will lose a fair election.

  • Fraternal Union between Russia and Byelorussia: Guarantee of Well-Being and Security of Our Peoples

    Appeal of the Chairman of the CC CPRF, Head of the CPRF at the State Duma Gennady Zyuganov to the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin and President of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko

    To: President Putin of the Russian Federation
    To: President Lukashenko of the Republic of Belarus

    The union of the peoples of Russia and Byelorussia is living through a historic moment. Our centuries-old brotherhood of struggle, victories and joint living is coming under sophisticated attacks from without and from within. The same forces that are wrecking the unity of the peoples of Russia and Ukraine are now carrying out their evil designs in the relations between Russia and Belarus.

  • How to defeat a (right-wing) mass movement

    Why did Hillary Clinton lose in 2008? Her campaign couldn’t figure out how to defeat a mass movement. Why did she lose in 2016? Once again, her campaign couldn’t figure out how to defeat a mass movement.

  • Message of Solidarity to the Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI), on the murder of two DYFI cadres

  • Oppose Historical Falsification of World War II

    This article is a special contribution to Forward on the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II by Vladimir Isakov, First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Leninist Komsomol of the Russian Federation.

    On the eve of the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, which ended with the defeat and surrender of militaristic Japan, a long-term campaign of “struggle for the return of the northern territories” gained momentum in modern Japan, accompanied by accusations of the USSR of a “treacherous attack on Japan” and in violation of the Soviet-Japanese Neutrality Pact of 1941. The Kuril Islands, which legally belong to the USSR and then to Russia, are called “Northern Territories” in Japan today.

  • Contradictions of U.S. capitalism

    More than 50 million people in the U.S. are out of work, and Donald Trump is on the golf course again. Despite promising swift action to restore economic growth, Trump is interested in restoring his golf swing. Indeed, his callous leadership of the federal government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has seen the death toll approaching 180,000, has bled into his party’s resistance to serious relief for working-class people.

  • Israeli Expats Hold Anti-Netanyahu Protests in 18 Cities Simultaneously

    The Central Council of KNE announces the adaptation of the events of the 46th Festival of KNE-Odigitis, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    This year, the Festival of KNE-Odigitis will be…different!

That is what we are going to do also with the Festival.

  • The Communist Party and the youth vote

    The American secular religion may be a steadfast belief in the potency of bourgeois democracy, but today the youth are by and large non-believers. Those who retain hope for the prospects of politics increasingly recognize the centrality of alternative forms of struggle. As Ricardo Soto demonstrates in “Political Disengagement among the Young,” Generation Z is the generation most open to socialism in at least a century. They are not merely frustrated with capitalism, but looking for a radical exit. This provides an unprecedented opportunity, but also necessitates we determine the tactics best suited to leveraging this opening, not just for our party but also for the mass movement as a whole.

  • Women vote — and change the world

    At its best, electoral politics is the closest we can get to an expression of the collective will of the working class. In a fair election, the electorate as a social body makes a collective decision. The media tend to see the working class as a “special interest” segment of the electorate. But by definition, the vast majority of us comprise the “99%” that the Occupy movement identified so clearly, and we each have one vote.

  • The Communists of Belarus need fraternal solidarity!

    comunistaAddress of the Union of Communist parties-CPSU to the Communist and workers' parties of the world

    Dear comrades and friends!

    Once the wise leader of the Communist party of the United States, Gus Hall, said that true internationalism is tested by the attitude to the Soviet Union. He was absolutely right. It has been known since Marx that every practical step is more important than a dozen programs. The USSR was the embodiment of an age-old dream of humanity - even if imperfect, early, but socialism.

  • 33 Arrested as 10,000 Protest against Netanyahu in Jerusalem

  • Austrian neutrality and imperialist alliances

    pda oesterreichConsideration by Tibor Zenker, chairman of the Party of Labour of Austria

    Rather incidentally and as a sideline, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo mentioned at a press conference in Belvedere Palace on the occasion of his visit to Vienna on 14 August that Austria would in future participate in the "State Partnership Program" (SPP) of the US Pentagon. Austrian Defence Minister Klaudia Tanner later confirmed this assertion. The announcement came as a bit of a surprise and raises some questions.
