Greece demonstrates - by International Communist Party
At the end of yet another «historic» marathon session Brussels negotiations between the Greek government and its creditors, a «definitive» agreement has yet again been found to «resolve" the Greek crisis: Greek Prime Minister Tsipras and his team have come to accept as a condition for new loans to the virtually bankrupt Greek government, a plan of austerity measures significantly harsher than he had rejected a week earlier and against which he had, supposedly, held a referendum! The only...

The Question of a US form of fascism - by Steve Martinot

With the growing epidemic of police killings, mostly of people of color, with the intentional maintenance and growth of the largest prison system in the world (with practically a political guarantee of recidivism), with police making lethal demands for obedience, with the increasing corporate technological destruction of land and oceans, and with the constant obsessions with war (a misnomer for massacre from a distance), the term "fa...
