Posadists, Gerry Downing and Tankies Unite: Victory to the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics and their allies!

with 8 comments

This statement is endorsed by: Consistent Democrats, International Ukraine Anti-Fascist Solidarity New Communist Party, Posadists Today, and Socialist Fight (aka Gerry Downing). It is adapted from a fine statement by the Socialist Unity Party / Partido de Socialismo Unido, based in the US, which is to be found here.

On Feb. 24, the anti-fascist Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, together with the Russian Federation, launched a military action with the goal of “demilitarization and denazification” of Ukraine. It is in the interest of poor and working people, anti-war and anti-imperialist forces in the U.S. and other NATO countries, to take an unambiguous position in solidarity with the anti-fascist forces. The real war danger comes from U.S. and NATO forces surrounding Russia. The government in Kiev is their proxy, with no regard for the people of Ukraine.

Joint Statement: Victory to the anti-fascist forces of Donbass and their allies!

  2. The Posadists must be thrilled by Putin’s nuclear posturing, Perhaps they think he is a socialist spaceman as well.

  3. Meanwhile in another part of the pooliverse, TUSC, in the form of Dave Nellist, got 360 votes in Erdington, against 9,500 odd for Labour’s Paulette Hamilton. This will cause bewilderment in Skwakie Towers as Mr Walker was giving him covert backing by implication, and most of his BTL menagerie were predicting an easy shoo-in for the people’s Dave. Mr Putin obliging, no doubt we will get an analysis of all this in coming days.

  4. I sort of like Libby T from Harry’s Place. She/he’s kind of explicit. This is important because it’s about Europeans (hint: white people) and east versus west. Also let’s not be afraid of nuclear war. If only liberals/centrists and “left socialists” were so honest.

  5. Even the Third Period KKE is better. “. The decision of the Russian Federation to initially recognize the “independence” of the so-called “Peoples’ Republics” in Donbas and then to proceed to a Russian military intervention, which is taking place under the pretext of Russia’s “self-defence”, the “demilitarization” and “defascistization” of Ukraine, was not made to protect the people of the region or peace but to promote the interests of Russian monopolies in Ukrainian territory and their fierce competition with Western monopolies. We express our solidarity with the communists and the peoples of Russia and Ukraine and we stand on their side to strengthen the struggle against nationalism, which is fostered by each bourgeoisie. The peoples of both countries, who lived in peace and jointly thrived in the framework of the USSR, as well as all other peoples have no interest in siding with one or another imperialist or alliance that serves the interests of the monopolies.” https://inter.kke.gr/en/articles/No-to-the-imperialist-war-in-Ukraine/
