Protesters call for Netanyahu to resign amid corruption allegations

Democracy and Class Struggle says Netanyahu and Trump have much in common politically but these birds of  feather might be struck down with one stone - criminal charges.

Netanyahu and Trump in chains maybe too much to wish for this Christmas - we wish for peace in Middle East and on the Korean Peninsula first - but both of them being in chains would make that wish just a little bit more possible.

Stone Cold Truth " Its Painfully Obvious Trump will be charged with a Crime " Has Christmas come early ?

Democracy and Class Struggle says so far this Christmas Season we have seen a lot of ill will from Trump over Jerusalem and North Korea but it is just possible we might just get some good cheer if Trump's "John Bircher" Roger Stone is right and Trump is going to get charged with a crime.

Russian Hacker in Russian Court Claims He Hacked DNC Servers By Request Of The Kremlin

Democracy and Class Struggle says we reported individuals in Russian FSB were freelancing and selling information here

Therefore someone working for the FSB on Cyber Security is not automatically working for the Kremlin.

Russian interference in the US Election is not automatically Kremlin interference - but still makes it likely.

Konstantin Kozlovsky was arrested by the Russian authorities for alleged bank heists. 

Kozlovsky has reportedly testified that he has been reporting directly to Dmitry Dokuchayev (a major-general in the FSB) since 2008. He also claimed that Dokuchayev had instructed him to attack the DNC’s servers for the purpose of manipulating the electoral process in the United States. 

Democracy and Class Struggle has previously reported that Dokuchayev (Dokuchaev) was himself arrested on charges of treason and was accused by the agency of passing information to the CIA. 

Dokuchayev was also then charged in the US for hacking into the Yahoo servers. 

Dmitry Dokuchaev was arrested for violation of Art. 275 (Treason) of the Russian Criminal Code. 

He says he did not cooperate with hacker Konstantin Kozlovsky, who pleaded guilty to hacking the US Democrats, according to Dokuchaev’s lawyer, RBCreports.

For United States interference in Russian Elections

The Konstatin Koslovsky story may be true or false , at least it fits a pattern of activities by rogue FSB Traitors  - but what it links too in future may be more interesting.

India : Kobad Ghandy Re- Arrested - Press Statement from Kobad Ghandy

After being acquitted in all cases and spending eight years and three months in jail, when I, Kobad Ghandy was finally released from jail, I was re-arrested by the Jharkhand Police just three days after release. On Dec 16, 2017, I was attending the Achempet Court (near Hyderabad), the Jharkhand, accompanied by the APSIB (Andhra Pradesh State Intelligence Bureau) arrested me and took me by flight to Ranchi.

This FIR has been pending since 2010 and even though I and the Cherlapalli jail authorities wrote to the JMFC Bokaro/Tenughat twice for production there was no response. The first letter was written more than one year back on November 2, 2016. And when there was no response to this a reminder was sent by me and the jail authorities on March 9, 2017. Still there was no response.

Though I am 71 years and in serious health conditions. Immediately after release I had a check-up at the Apollo Hospital, Hyderabad, which recommended at least one month's complete rest. 

It is clear the police methods are being used to kill legally, given I am 71 years old and in very poor health. Since seven years they did not bother about this case, but in order to keep me in jail as an under trial indefinitely, they arrested me immediately on release.

In the case they have taken me, most have been acquitted and the rest are on bail. Yet the harassment.

If anything serious happens to my health in jail with this arrest, I will hold the government responsible. Given that I have been acquitted in all cases, that most have been acquitted in this case, and my age and health condition, demand my immediate release.

India Seeks To Reshape Its Armored Forces

Catalonia :'Future of Article 155 central in campaign debate'

Democracy and Class Struggle says the struggle in Catalonia is very important for the future of national rights and democracy not only in Spain but all of Europe.

The absence of a Marxist Leninist Maoist Revolutionary Party to lead working class National and Social Liberation in Catalonia is not the absence of the relevance of  Catalan Struggle to Europe and the rest of the World,

Catalonia's most hesitant bourgeoisie is confirmation that only the working class can lead the national struggle to success

In the absence of a revolutionary MLM  Party in Catalonia Democracy and Class Struggle like our Welsh Comrades in Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr critically supports Popular Unity CUP in Catalan Elections and a Constituent Assembly Process to create a democratic Constitution for the New Catalan Republic.

Those revisionists and  social democrats who rally to the defense of the Spanish State are promoting Social Fascism.

We know these  "Revolutionary" Leftists who love the Spanish the British and Imperialist French States very well.

They are opposed to the revolutionary smashing of these Imperialist States and are terrified of real revolution

They have good reason to fear us as their political days are numbered.

India : Hyderabad Friends and Comrades Released

I, along with 18 other friends, was released at 9.45 and reached home by 10.30.

Today I am a little busy on some other preoccupation and I will write a detailed note most probably tomorrow on what happened and how. Anyway, Thanks from depths of my heart for you concern.

N Venugopal Rao writes 

Shameful Act of Telangana Government

Friends, in protest of Prapancha Telugu Mahasabhalu (World Telugu Conference, a state sponsered circus in the mame of language and literature), Virasam gave a call to boycott and organised a protest demonstration at Sri Sri’s statue on Tank Bund at 4 pm today. 

I am not part of Virasam, but independently oppose government’s tamasha. 

At 2 pm, two hours ahead of demonstration, police came to my home and said they are making a preventive arrest. 

I was brought to kanchan bagh police station. Around 5 pm many others including varavara rao, pani, kasim, geetanjali, maabjoomi sandhyakka are also brought to the same police station. 

Till now there is no sign of release...

Nepal Deserves Better than a cabal of Old and New Revisionists : Statement from Democracy and Class Struggle

                                                              Oli and Prachanda

Democracy and Class Struggle has seen some people hail the victory of Prachanda in Alliance with UML in Nepal - this perfidious combination of old and new revisionism is nothing to celebrate

It appears Prachanda's group got 14% of the vote and UML got 36%  and Nepali Congress 35%.

Prachanda with Bhattarai are the men who supported the Nepalese Army dispersing Peoples Liberation Army  members from their encampments,

The People's War was betrayed for a corrupt Bourgeois Republic to be run by Old and New Revisionist running dogs.

What is Marxism-Leninism-Maoism? How can it apply to Ireland today?

Marxism-Leninism-Maoism is a third and higher stage in the development of scientific socialism. Marxism was developed by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels in the Epoch of Capitalism.

Marxism-Leninism was developed by Lenin and Stalin building on the universal aspects of Marxism through the experience of the worlds first successful socialist revolution and the construction of socialism in the USSR and Maoism, was first developed by Chairman Mao Tse- Tung and the communists of China, building on the universal aspects of Marxism- Leninism and through the victory of the Chinese revolution and the development of the struggle against imperialism.

As Marxism-Leninism is more than the adoption of Marxism to Russian conditions, Marxism-Leninism-Maoism is more then the adoption of Marxism to Chinese conditions.

The universal aspects of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism were synthesized in the 1980s by the Communist Party of Peru, under the leadership of Chairman Gonzalo, developing the theory of Maoism into a great universal weapon of the working class through the fire of revolution.

Today, Marxism-Leninism-Maoism gives hope to all those struggling for communism against the betrayal of revisionism and sets out a roadmap for victory in the struggle for national liberation and socialism, through the theory of Protracted People’s War, the Military theory of the working class that has guided successful revolutions in China, People’s Korea and Vietnam and continues to be utlised by the people of India, the Philippines, Nepal with devastating effect, continuing to inspire Working Class and oppressed peoples all over the world.

Irish Revolutionaries have always sought to apply the most advanced methods of scientific socialism to the concrete conditions of the struggle for national liberation and socialism.James Connolly and Liam Mellows successfully applied the Marxist Method to the Irish Struggle, which was built on later by revolutionary cadre such as Seamus Costello to build a Marxist Leninist fighting organisation of the Irish Working Class.

Since the victory of the Chinese Revolution in 1949, have closely studied the experience of Mao and Maoism. During the border campaign from 1956-1962, IRA Prisoners, led by Seamus Costello, then just a teenager, studied the Chinese Revolution and the struggle for national liberation and socialism in Vietnam and attempted to apply the lessons of those struggles to Ireland.

On release, this led the IRA to adopt a position of engaging in revolutionary mass work alongside its military campaign. During the 1960s, Seamus Costello, then a member of the IRA Army Council approaches Revolutionary China for Financial support, weapons and training for IRA Cadre to continue the struggle for national liberation and socialism.

And again in the 1980s, as the People’s War was waging in Peru, a number of IRA commanders along Britain’s illegal border in Ireland, who had studied the writings of Mao while in prison, began to develop a strategy for Protracted People’s War in Ireland.

IRA Cadre such as Jim Lynagh, Padraig McKearney, Seamus McElwaine, Padraig Kelly were to the fore in attempting to create liberated areas along the border that could be linked together to create a system revolutionary dual power and were said by comrades to building towards a Vietnam style TET offensive.

These IRA leaders and their comrades however, were systematically taken out in targeted assassinations by British terrorists in Ireland.

One again, in the 21st century, Irish Revolutionaries and the Irish Working Class must look to the most advanced teachings of scientific socialism to advance our struggle for national liberation and socialism. Irish Revolutionaries must study Marxism-Leninism-Maoism and attempt to apply its universal aspects to the conditions in Ireland today.

The building of a United Front, uniting all revolutionary forces in the struggle for national liberation and socialism is one of the most pressing tasks for Irish Revolutionaries.

The United Front, one of the key tools of Maoist Strategy and Tactics and long advocated in Ireland by Seamus Costello under the name ‘Anti- Imperialist Broad Front’ is the vehicle through which the Irish Working Class can defeat capitalism and imperialism and rebuild the Socialist Republic.

This is for our generation. 

Study and Develop Marxism-Leninism-Maoism! 

Build the United/ Anti-Imperialist Broad Front!
