Recently, U.S. President Donald Trump denounced all the nations of Africa, plus Haiti, El Salvador and by implication other countries, as “shitholes”  whose people should not be allowed to immigrate to the United States.

To us in the Communist Party USA, the only mild surprise is the bluntness and vulgarity with which Trump expressed himself.

The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) which represents more than 92 million workers in every corner of the world, expresses its unequivocal condemnation of the U.S. President D. Trump declarations of hatred who, during a discussion with lawmakers at the White House, complained about immigrants coming to the United States from “shithole countries”. At the same time, he attacked in a vulgar manner immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti and African countries.

A little over a year ago, the Women’s March brought literally millions into the streets to protest Donald Trump’s inauguration and everything it represented. It was a hugely important moment in the resistance highlighting the leading role of women, a role that has only grown.

This year’s march is just a few week’s away and is focused on the midterm elections. The national march is January 21 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Local marches will take place the day before,  January 20.

On Wednesday December 6, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that his government recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and that therefore the U.S. embassy, now located in Tel Aviv, will be moving there.  Trump, with typical bombast, announced that the construction of a new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem would be “a magnificent monument to peace”.

Most of the rest of the world sees the move, rather, as being a harbinger of more conflict and war.

United States of AmericaIt is time to remove this dangerous man from office.‬

I have just signed the "Need To Impeach" petition initiated by Tom Steyer of California. Over two million other Americans have also signed it. And that number keeps growing every hour. We -- all of us -- must not wait a minute longer to act.‬

comunistaThroughout November, celebrations around the world will mark the centenary of the outstanding political event of the 20th century: the Great October Socialist Revolution of 1917. By overthrowing the Russian capitalists, landowners and aristocrats, the workers, peasants and soldiers of the Tsarist empire opened the door to a new society in which humanity’s dreams of peace, equality and democracy began to become reality. The storming of the Winter Palace, signaled by the guns of the Aurora cruiser, began the historical epoch of the transition towards a socialist society, based on cooperation and social justice, not the exploitation and oppression inherent in the profit-driven capitalist system.

IWW General Defense CommitteeWe reproduce a statement of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) om yesterday's Charlottesville clashes between white racistas and antifascist groups.

In Charlottesville, VA today, a coalition of fascist groups held a »Unite The Right« rally, where they committed another murder. A fascist drove his car at full speed into other cars, creating a multi-vehicle weapon aimed at anti-racist protesters. Tonight, a 32 year old woman whose identity we do not yet know is dead, and many more are wounded.

United States of AmericaOfficials in Charlottesville in the U.S. state of Virginia have declared a state of emergency before a large march by white nationalists Saturday, following clashes between them and counter-protesters the previous night.

The move would allow local authorities to bring in additional resources from outside jurisdictions if needed, the police department said. However, the declaration would not stop the event from taking place, which could be one of the largest such rallies in recent U.S. history. “Local officials continue to closely monitor the situation and will provide additional details as they are available,” the statement said.

comunistaThe Communist Party of Canada condemns the latest flagrant violation of the national sovereignty of Venezuela by Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland.

Going far beyond the bounds of diplomacy, Minister Freeland attacked the July 30 voting to elect a Constituent Assembly which will have powers to resolve the political crisis in Venezuela. The Liberal government’s claim that the election was “contrary to Venezuela’s Constitution”, and therefore illegitimate, is a lie. Article 347 and 348 of the Bolivarian Constitution outline the president’s right to initiate a National Constituent Assembly.
