Morning StarAVOIDABLE tragedy has again hit a working-class community, with the Grenfell Tower inferno bringing out the best in our multicultural society and our overstretched emergency services.

Fire, ambulance and police services reacted without delay, risking their own well-being in the west London tower block to rescue survivors and minimise loss of life.

Local mosques, churches and community halls offered emergency accommodation and gave food, drinks and clothing to those who escaped the blaze.

pcpThe Portuguese Communist Party (PCP) commented the results auf the general elections in Britain:

The results of the early general elections in Great Britain constitute a political defeat of the Conservative Party that sought to strengthen the parliamentary support for a greater offensive against the social and labor rights of the British workers and people, and for a reinforced neoliberal and militarist policy and imperialism affirmation.

Communist Party of BritainRobert Griffiths, general secretary of the Communist Party of Britain (CPB), issued the following statement on the results of British elections: »Twelve million people have voted for a left-wing Labour manifesto and a majority of electors have rejected austerity policies. The Tories have no mandate for five months of public spending cuts, never mind another five years.

Morning StarJEREMY CORBYN started his final day of campaigning in Glasgow yesterday telling supporters that the general election is a clear choice between another five years of underfunding, or investment.

As Labour continues to climb in the polls, Mr Corbyn delivered one of his final addresses to voters from a platform on Buchanan Street.

Morning StarTHE Tories appear to be in something of a panic. Talk of a landslide has been abandoned. Their election strategists are at each other’s throats over the humiliating U-turn on “social care” while their cynical attempt to exploit the Manchester bombing has done little except expose the bankruptcy of negative campaigning.

International Workers DayAS we approach May Day this year, the struggle of workers both within Britain and internationally is clearly intensifying.

With threats to world peace growing, along with the increasing dominance of the economic system with massive multinational companies at its heart, workers are having to fight harder to maintain what has been won in the past. The need for international solidarity between workers is crucial.

The big London May Day this year is seeking to highlight some of the key fights going on by trade unions like the RMT Southern rail dispute, the Unite BA Mixed Fleet dispute, the small but crucially important PCS and Unite battle at the Equalities and Human Rights Commission and the Bectu Picture House fight.

Stop the War CoalitionStop the War condemns the attacks at Westminster today. There can be no justification for the attacks on ordinary people in the street and those working in or providing security in the palace of Westminster. Our thoughts are with all those killed, injured or caught up in the incident.

The police have said that they have designated this as a terrorist attack, and it shares some of the features of other such attacks across Europe recently.

Communist Party of Britain THE world is entering its most dangerous phase since imperialism proclaimed eternal victory over the Soviet Union and socialism in the early 1990s.

People everywhere were promised a New World Order of peace, disarmament, democracy and social justice. Instead, capitalism’s general crisis has reasserted itself in two decades of war, genocide, repression, mass migration, economic and financial crisis, global warming and environmental degradation.
Through Nato and the European Union, imperialism has extended its operations across Europe, much of the former Soviet Union, the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region.
