Information for revolutionary and Marxist-Leninist forces of all countries
The subject of the leaflet from September 2013 was: The German Secret Services, the nazi murder network NSU and the NSA: “HQs of German secret services stormed! All data has been secured!” “These should have been the headlines after tens of thousands of members of the IG Metall and other unions under the umbrella of DGB trade union confederation together with activists of the young anti-fascists and ‘Pirates’ of all shades had had enough. Instead of the cover-ups and the appeasement of the bosses of the DGB and IG Metall and the leadership of the so-called ‘Die Linke’, they could have taken the answering of some central questions into their own hands. ‘Could have’ – because it’s still a dream that needs to become reality. … But even before the wished-for storming of the headquarters of the intelligence services, we can give some pretty clear answers to the main questions based on experience and plausible reflection: [...]
Police Terror Against Refugees Executed with Cold-Blooded Calculation in Munich on 30.6.2013: Solidarity with the Struggle of the Refugees against the Deadly Police and Deportation Terror of the German State! The hunger and ‘thirst’ strike of over 50 refugees at a protest camp in the city centre of Munich was ended on 30th June by a brutal police action carried out with deadly premeditation. This was a new peak in the police terror against the refugee movement. Refugees, weakened through thirst and hunger, were attacked, beaten and some dragged away without even medical aid. Bourgeois press and politicians lied and libelled: the police terror was allegedly „to save lives“, and the struggling refugees were abused as „extortionists“…
The leaflet from March/April 2013 dealt with:
The Experience at Opel Confirms the Slogan:If you fight you can lose, but if you don’t fight, you’ve already lost!
Over 76 % of the Opel workers in Bochum have rejected the so-called ‘restructuring wage agreement’ that the leadership of the metal workers’ union IG-Metall had agreed with Opel management. This rejection is completely justified. … There are many voices claiming that it doesn’t make any sense to fight in a situation like this. That it would only make things worse. Those who fight will only lose, that’s the logic that the union- and works council chiefs are trying to make us believe…
German imperialism in Greece
The reason why campains like the one earned out by Antifas in Hannover are very important: Fight any habituation to German militarism!
„The German Army, like every imperialist army, requires a certain degree of acceptance and support on the part of its own domestic population. Through the employment of a vast apparatus of propaganda, supported by the bourgeois media, German imperialists and militarists have managed to prepare and carry out their gradual military expansion dynamically and effectively. They have managed to habituate the German population to increasingly open and large military interventions, under several different flags. They have done all this without encountering any significant resistance. At the same time, they have successfully managed to paint themselves as a fundamentally ‘dovish’ and ‘human’ force by pointing the finger at others – particularly at US imperialism – thus diverting attention from their own war campaigns and war crimes.

German imperialism in Greece
„The impressive struggles of the militant youths and numerous workers in Greece, particularly in the wake of the 6th December 2008, when the 15-yearold Alexis Grigoropoulous was murdered by a police officer in Athens, have attracted great attention in revolutionary circles in many countries around the world, and particularly in Germany. …
Our solidarity with our campaigning comrade brothers and sisters in Greece should bring our attention to one particularly important issue: educating the public about our ‘own’ imperialism – that is,German imperialism – and its role in both the history of Germany and in its present-day circumstances.”

Struggle for clarity regarding socialist democracy! ” There is a central question which cannot and may not be subject to denocratic decision within the framework of bourgeois democracy: namely, to whom the banks and industrial corporations, to whom the actual core of capitalist society in relation to its economics should belong. Who has the final say? Who determines who owns the banks and corporations? Who is allowed to decide on this? In the same way that it is impossible for the United Nations to ‘decide ‘ that the financial resources of big capital should be distributed to the starving and exploited- or that exploitation should be abolished—so it is beyond the bourgeois parliament in Germany (regardless of whichever coalition of parties is in power) to de- ‘ cide ‘ that the economic power ofthe ruling class in its entirety should be broken by outright expropriation. And in case of emergency, the Bundeswehr, the German Armed Forces, are still there. Socialist democracy demands as a prerequisite that the question of the ownership of the means of production is settled: banks, industry, land andproperty must be expropriated as a central measure of socialist democracy – that is, for the majority of the working class in conjunction with the exploited masses. These means of production then have to be put into the hands of these masses of once exploit ed working women and men. Whoever claims that the class of exploiters will take such moves lying down, are either deliberately lying or has learnt nothing from history . . . → Read More: Struggle for clarity regarding socialist democracy!
The socialist October Revolution, which began in Russia on October 24th, 1917
90 years since the victorious socialist October Revolution in Russia The victorious armed insurrection of the proletariat against the bourgeoisie The socialist October Revolution, which began in Russia on October 24th, 1917 , and lasted ‘ten days which shook the world’, was quite clearly prepared over the preceding years, indeed decades. The Oc tober Revolution showed that a victorious armed insurrection in a country like Russia, with its three million working women and men and its one hun dred million working peasant women and men, can indeed be truly successful, even if such an insurrec tion represents just one step on the long road to the socialist revolution. It is therefore of major impor tance that we examine carefully the precise require ments, the hidden agenda, the strategy and tactics for these ‘ten days which shook the world \ 1. Preparation of the October Revolution I: In the section “From the 1917 February Revolution to August 1917″ the leaflet goes on to describe how, even if it did not achieve tsarism’s absolute destruction, the armed struggle smashed it to pieces and made it incapable of exercising power, as well as the role that was played by the butchery of the imperialist First World War. The February Revolution created the Soviets of workers and peasants. At this point the bourgeois Mensheviks and SocialistRevolutionaries were the majority against the revolutionary Bolsheviks. At the same time the counter-revolutionary bourgeoisie established their own so-called ‘provisional government’. This was the beginning of the so-called ‘dual power’. At this point . . . → Read More: 90 years since the victorious socialist October Revolution in Russia The victorious armed insurrection of the proletariat against the bourgeoisie
No slandering or discrimination of any sort against those who are attracted to members of the same sex!
The Reactionary Paragraph 175 and Nazi Fascism: No slandering or discrimination of any sort against those who are attracted to members of the same sex! “The Nazi Regime committed such a plethora of criminal acts that, reinforced by all sorts of bourgeoise prejudices, the real danger exists in the potential to overlook and to underestimate a serious facet of the Nazi crimes: the Nazi ‘male role model’ and the Nazi campaign to eliminate ‘homosexuality’. Homosexuality between men was a criminal, prosecutable act since the days of the German Empire and later the Weimar Republic. The Communist Party of Germany (KPD) led a campaign in the days of the Weimar Republic to abolish the disgraceful Paragraph 175, but the Nazis seized power in 1933. They particularly targeted homosexual men, or those classified or denounced as such, to a degree that was unimaginable up until that point, using judicial prosecutions (Paragraph 175), incarceration, penitentiaries and concentration camps. Today, Communist-oriented comrades cannot and must not disregard this fact… ” It goes on: “If we discuss first of all the Nazi-Fascist crimes against ‘homosexuals’ – which we should take to mean crimes against those who are attracted to members of the same sex (for the Nazis ‘prime tar gets were first and foremost men) – then another question immediately presents itself: What was spe cial about the Nazi persecution of this minority? For it was not the case, even after 1945, that men attracted to other men ceased to be pursued ac cording to the provisions of the . . . → Read More: The Reactionary Paragraph 175 and Nazi Fascism:

50 years of Bundeswehr – Fight the third attempt of German militarism! The future plans of German military: WAR
Modern Revisionism is and remains the main threat! “In today’s situation, there is almost nothing which there isn’t: Anarchist groups such as sections of the FAU propagate the ideas of Stalin (all of a sudden there is also such a thing as “autonomous” Communists), while rejecting the dictatorship of the proletariat and the Communist party and forming coalitions with Trotskyite groups. Groups such as the MLPD aggravate with the ear-piercing volume of their proclamations, indirectly proportional to the Communist content They also use terms such as “Volk” (as in the ‘people’ who as poor worker masses had fought in China prior to 1949) in a vulgar, nationalist manner, in order to cosy up to the worst habits of the “German people” in the most embarrassing of ways, including here the carnevalistic “Helau MLPD”. Groups such as the DKP and the “Communist Platform fraction of the PDS” as well as the KPD-Ost “Rote Fahne” suddenly have “revisionism” on their lips, but of course do not mean themselves, as if they had never had anything to do with Khrushchev, Brezhnev, Ulbricht and Honecker. And so, just as they have all more or less taken the “peacefulpath” vis-à-vis this German state and the class enemies, these groups have suddenly become so “peaceable” to one another, holding meetings at “round tables”, forming “election pacts” and swearing “unity”. And given that things are so wonderfully peaceful over there, along come groups which actually consider themselves “anti-Revisionist”, such as the “Arbeiterbund” or KPD-”Roter Morgen”and who knows who else besides, forgetting . . . → Read More: Modern Revisionism is and remains the main threat!
Twofold lesson "Between ¡4"' anelli" October 2004, workers at the Opel factory in Bochum took to the streets in protest against threatened mass redundancies.
On the strike and strike outbreak at Opel: Twofold lesson “Between ¡4″‘ anelli” October 2004, workers at the Opel factory in Bochum took to the streets in protest against threatened mass redundancies. This strike action was initiated and maintained without and against trade union management. Management at IG Metall and the top dogs of the Opel works conned were against this autonomous strike from the outset. With the backing of various politicians such as Schartau, Clement and Schröder, they tried the stir up the fear that a strike would bring about the permanent shutdown of I he plant. The capitalists’ attempts at intimidation – including threats of instant dismissal and damage claims did not deter the workers at Opel The strike was successfully prolonged for seven days despite the attempts of the worker aristocrats of i he works council committee to turn workers against themselves. It wasn’t until 21s’ October that they finally managed to break up the strike, operating jointly with the capitalists with the aid of an undemocratic ballot. A twofold lesson is clear from all of this: Firstly, the strike demonstrated (he enormous strength of the workers who fought autonomously. On the other hand, it also showed (he tremendous power of trade union management and its apparatus to pacify workers in the service of the capitalists. ” After İt was revealed that some 12.000 jobs would be cut al Opel in Europe – 3.500 of these in Bochum – some 3,000 workers in Bochum went on strike, which is deemed illegal . . . → Read More: On the strike and strike outbreak at Opel:

Fight the lethal German master race ideology: Against Nazi terror and discrimination against dark-skinned people in Germany “The German master race ideology has many guises. With a certain arbitrariness, specific groups of people living in Germany are being picked out, pilloried and set upon. Anti-Ziganism, hatred directed against the Sinti and Roma peoples (as in Rostock, 2002) is back in demand. Once again antiSemitic stereotypes, hatred against Jews, have come to the fore (such as the Martin Walser speech of 1998, the Jürgen Mollemann debate in 2002, anti-Semitic attacks in Lübeck in 1995 and Dusseldorf in 2000). Afterwards, the ‘Christian-Occidental ‘card, always at-hand, will be played against people of Arab countries (as in the current ‘headscarf debate ), but also the classic chauvinistic colonial racism directed against dark-skinnedpeople (as in Hoyerswerda in 199 or Lübeck in 1996), or the campaign of hatred against refugees (e.g. Mannheim-Schönau in 1992) or foreigners in general’(inMölln in 1992). While Stoiber (CSU) sent out the rallying cry a few years ago against this ‘slacking society ‘ (which obviously hasn ‘t done any harm to his career), the Nazis in Germany have long since considered darkskinned people as one oftheir favoured targets with their murderous street campaigns and arson attacks. ” In Germany there is a deep-rooted and primitive ‘day-to-day racism’, alongside state-sponsored discrimination and Nazi terror against dark-skinned people. “Attempting to disprove racist arguments one by one is like nothing more than falling for the underlying assumption that logical arguments can have any kind of effect on the minds . . . → Read More: Fight the lethal German master race ideology:
