The War in Ukraine is a War over Europe

THE war in Ukraine is not a simple war. This is not a war merely between two neighbours about a border dispute, for instance. It is a complex war, a war not only between Russia and Ukraine but also a war that involves the United States and NATO (the Trojan Horse of the United States). The battlefield is Ukraine, but it is not only Ukraine. The battlefield, in fact, is all of Europe.

EUROPE AS A SUBORDINATE ALLY OF US

Could Colombia Have a Left-Wing Government?

ON March 13, 2022, Colombia’s Left-wing electoral coalition (Pacto Histórico por Colombia) held its primary election. The Pacto Histórico (or Historical Pact) is a coalition of twenty different political parties and formations from the far-Left, Comunes, to the centre-Left’s Todos Somos Colombia and the Communist Party of Colombia. It includes the Left formation Humane Colombia, led by Gustavo Petro, who won the primary with more than 80 per cent of the vote.

Left Turn in Chile

GABRIEL Boric took oath as the president of Chile on March 11. This marks the ushering of a new chapter in the history of Chile.
Boric is the youngest president of Chile, elected at the age of 35 years (the minimum age required to contest for presidency). He represents the alliance, Apruebo Dignidad, which includes Boric’s party Frente Amplio (Broad Front), the Communist Party of Chile and other smaller social movements. After Salvador Allende, Boric is the first to win the election in alliance with the Communist Party.

Red Books Day 2022

IN 1999, Fidel Castro of Cuba travelled to Caracas, Venezuela, to deliver an important speech at the central university. The USSR had collapsed, Fidel said, and the ‘extremely powerful empire’, the United States and its global tentacles, mounted a ‘ceaseless ideological battle with all their resources’. Structures of globalisation weakened the national projects of many states, whose agendas were increasingly set by the International Monetary Fund and by transnational corporations.

Israel Seeks to Prevent the Use of Word ‘Apartheid’ to Define its Occupation of Palestine

ON January 27, 2022, the Hebrew-language news site Walla published part of the text from a telegram sent by Amir Weissbrod – who is part of the Israeli foreign ministry – to Israeli embassies around the world. The telegram warned the Israeli diplomats that in the upcoming 49th regular session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), which is expected to begin on February 28, a report will be tabled regarding Israel’s 2021 bombing of Gaza.

Imperialist Designs in Ukraine

TENSIONS are building around Ukraine due to the US imperialism’s hegemonic attitude. The moves to expand NATO and enroll Ukraine as a member of that military grouping is resented by Russia, which considers it a threat. US and its allies are alleging that Russia is about to ‘invade’ Ukraine and has moved thousands of troops to the border. In the name of looming ‘war clouds’, US and UK withdrew some of their embassy staff in Ukraine and issued advisories to their citizens residing/touring that country.

The Terrible Occupation of Western Sahara

IN November 2020, the Moroccan government sent its military to the El Guerguerat area, a buzzer zone between the territory claimed by the Kingdom of Morocco and the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (the area claimed by the Polisario Front of the Sahrawi people). The Guerguerat border post is at the very southern edge of Western Sahara along the road that goes to Mauritania. This is the first time a ceasefire agreed upon between Morocco and Polisario in 1991 has been violated.
