Dear compatriots,
Dear comrades and friends,

With deep sorrow we watch the consequences of the recent tsunami on the Sumatra and Java islands in Indonesia with hundreds dead and wounded.

Even more so, it causes us great rage the revelations that many people could have been saved if the alert system for timely removal of the world was in operation. Unfortunately, it turns out once again that in this system of exploitation and profit, people’s lives are less valuable than the profits of the few. similar is the situation in our country, Greece, due to the lack of measures to protect the life and health of the people and workers.

We were therefore especially grateful for the opportunity below to explore these issues from an anti-imperialist perspective. (Eds.)

Current debates on anti-imperialism must contend not only with the United States, but also with China. As U.S. leftists continue internecine fights over Syria or Nicaragua, Chinese  economic and political power continues to expand: nine-figure investments in Israeli tech companies and arms deals; military bases stretching from Sri Lanka to Djibouti; dubious trade deals with Venezuela and Jamaica.  And China’s turn to neoliberalism is a sui generis chapter in modern history, let alone in the history of the Left.
