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!

Nazi Ukraine & Israel: Litmus Test on Demo-Republicans - by Register Peace & Freedom or Green
While refusing donations from fossil fuel corporations sounds like a good litmus test for presidential candidates, the real litmus tests are whether or not a candidate supports Nazis in Ukraine and the Zionist government of Israel, the latter an openly fascist government founded by Nazi Germany collaborators. Both the Democratic and Republican parties, at every level, support Nazis in Ukraine and the Zionist government of Israel. That ends the lie of voting for the evil of 2 lessers.

The Question of a US form of fascism - by Steve Martinot
In recent years, the term "fascism" is heard more and more. 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...
