The European Communist Initiative carried out an important intervention regarding the upcoming meeting of the heads of the states of the so-called “European South”, which the Greek government is organizing on the 9thof September in Athens.
The “European Communist Initiative” notes in this statement that the organizers of this meeting aim to utilize it to reinforce the illusions of the peoples of Europe about an “Alliance of the South”, which will allegedly “put an end to austerity” and calls on the peoples to strengthen their struggle to overturn the anti-people political line of the EU and the capitalist system which they serve.
The full statement of the Secretariat of “European Communist Initiative” can be found below:
“A conference of the leaders of the Mediterranean countries of the EU, of the so-called "South" of the EU, will be held in Athens on the 9th of September, at the initiative of the "left" SYRIZA-ANEL government of the new memoranda and the dozens of anti-worker measures, and will be focused on the developments in the EU, the refugee-immigrant question and the notorious issue of "development".

Spain Elections: 'Podemos' coalition is a spanish version of SYRIZA; a social-democratic fraud

COMMENTARY.

The electoral alliance between 'Podemos' and 'Izquierda Unida' (United Left) in Spain aims in offering an alternative of Capitalism's management. The leaders of the two parties, Pablo Iglesias and Alberto Garzón hailed the formation of the coalition as a "historic step". Amid anti-austerity fever in the country, polls in Spain show that the 'Unidos Podemos' coalition could unseat the long-established the center-left 'Socialist Party' (PSOE) for first time in Spain's political history.  Podemos leader Pablo Iglesias said the party has offered to form a coalition with PSOE after the election. "We need to agree with them [the PSOE] so that we can have a progressive government", he said.

What does Iglesias mean by "progressive government" is something we can easily understand by having a look at the 'Podemos' ideology and political program. In fact, the electoral alliance of Iglesias' party with 'Izquierda Unida' (in which the opportunistic Communist Party of Spain-PCE participates) is a spanish version of SYRIZA. It consists a social-democratic formula which uses radical slogans in order to foster illusions to spanish people that "another capitalist world is possible". The 'Podemos' program, like SYRIZA, does not - in any case- questions the EU and NATO membership of Spain. On the contrary, it tries to offer an alternative political vision within the boundaries of the capitalist system.

Spain: PCPE presents 42 lists to the General Elections on June 26th

PCPE (Partido Comunista de los Pueblos de España) presents 42 lists to the General Elections on June 26th.
Source: Solidnet.org
Due to a huge militant effort, the PCPE has presented one more list than in the elections on December 20th.
The added presence in the circunscription of Gipuzkoa increases the percentage of population that can vote communist. More than 93% of the voters will be able to support the communist lists and fill the ballots with demands and proposals in favour of the working class and the people.
Once again, the option is between those who defend any of the versions of management of the dictatorship of the monopolies and those who struggle for the working class to decide on their own future.
PCPE will speak clearly in these election on the issues that really concern the majority of the population: unemployment, evictions, privatizations, the progressive destruction fo the basic social services, the cost of living, the war, the cuts promoted by the European Commission... All of them are problems related to our participation in the Euro, the EU and NATO, and they will not be in the agenda of the bourgeois parties.
The communists, the PCPE will speak about all this and we will firmly work for the people to speak and mobilize for the exclusive defence of their interests.
We know that threre are no favourable solutions for the working class and the people under capitalism, we struggle also in the elections for the workers' power and Socialism.
