Bullet #1055: Crisis and Class-Struggle in Slovenia
by Jasa Lategano | November 14, 2014
For many liberal spectators, Slovenia was for a long time considered a success story of transition from a 'socialist dictatorship' into a 'parliamentary democracy' based on a market economy. In the winter of 2012, however, mass popular uprisings swept through the larger cities and eventually brought down the far-right neoliberal government of the Slovenian Democratic Party.

The general election to Ukraine's parliament (the Verkhovna Rada - Supreme Council) on October 26 was another step by the country's wealthy power brokers to consolidate their pro-Europe, pro-austerity economic course and related war against the rebellious population in the east of the country. A large, neoconservative and far-right majority now controls the Rada.
What's New: The Exploitation of Veterans Day
by Eugene V. Debs | November 11, 2014
I have just returned from a visit over yonder, where three of our most loyal comrades are paying the penalty for their devotion to the cause of the working class.

Bullet #1054: Harper's Iraq War Plan: Save People by Killing Them?
by Gregory Shupak | November 11, 2014
The Harper government's plan to send Canadian air power to help combat the Islamic State in Iraq, and possibly Syria, and for Canadian special forces to continue operating there is homicidal, won't achieve its supposed goals and needs to be opposed.

It is arguably the most important political development of South Africa's post-1994 era. On Friday, South Africa's largest union, the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) was expelled by the majority of the leadership belonging to South Africa's largest union federation, the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU). The political significance of NUMSA's expulsion derives from three key, inter-related areas of impact.

Dear Comrades and friends of the workers movement in South Africa, it is a terribly sad day. NUMSA was expelled in the early hours of this morning. For the record the vote was 33 to 24. As Andrew Chriwa, President of NUMSA said, NUMSA is COSATU. It formed COSATU, with others of course. It shaped COSATU during its different phases and histories.
