In the face of the acceleration of the deportations and the germanisation politics of German imperialism we have, primarily, to propagate proletarian internationalism

In the face of the acceleration of the deportations and the germanisation politics of German imperialism we have, primarily, to propagate proletarian international ism and Communism!

OB the Co-operation of the Revolutionary Forces of Different Nationalities in Germany During the last months, the new government of the social democrats and the Greens (SPDGrüne) has accelerated the politics of the sealing off of the country and of deportation. The minister of the interior Schily outstripped his predecessor Kant her. He trumpeted that the “German boat is full” thai immigration has to he reduced “to zero,” and he accelerated and accelerates the closìng-off- and deportation laws as well as the deportation measures of his predecessors. In this, the Nazi-supported reactionary signature collection by the CDU/CSU against the SPD/Green government’s project of ‘double citizenship’ was a welcome event for the government enabling it to divert from its own actual reactionary politics İn the spirit of German nationalism. The effort of the SPD and the Greens to split the people declared as ‘foreigners’ into ‘desirables’ and ‘undesirables’ have not been without effect. This is reason enough not to get stuck in a discussion of juridical details, and instead of this to develop a principled Communist point of view concerning the revolutionary perspective and the revolutionary co-operation of the workers of different nationalities in Germany. This is possible only on the basis of the recognition of tiie also existing progressive aspects of the modern migration of liations.possible uuly in the struggle against all varieties of the chauvinist incorporation politics . . . → Read More: In the face of the acceleration of the deportations and the germanisation politics of German imperialism we have, primarily, to propagate proletarian internationalism

Solidarity with the just reparation demands of the Herero people in Namibia!

Solidarity with the just reparation demands of the Herero people in Namibia! The Genocide Committed Against the Herero by the German Imperialists Won’t Be Forgiven Nor Forgotten! March 1998 ln English January 1999 “The state visit of the highest representative of German imperialism, Herzog, in Namibia was a direct blow in the face of the people of the Herero, the victims of the genocide committed by the German colonial army in the years 1904 to 1907. Tbe German Federal President rejected all reparations and every apology, he even rejected to receive the representatives of the people of the Herero. The goa! of Herzog’s trip was in fact a different one. It consisted in the strengthening of the reactionary relations to this former German colony, especially to the 30.000 people ‘of German descent,’ who, for the most part, have the role of a ’5th column * of German imperialism in the promotion of its hegemonic interests. AU this İs enacted together with a display of Pan-German chauvinism, and apart from this, Herzog’s incantation of the ‘German heritage still alive in Namibia,’ in the face of the monstrous crimes of the German power holders in so-called ‘German South West Africa’ [Deutsclisüdwestafrika], is a provocation and mockery of the peoples of Namibia that can scarcely be surpassed. All this mustn’t be accepted without challenge by the progressive forces, especially tbe Communists. Not only is it important to unmask the rapacious and aggressive policy of the German imperialists; it is equally important to elaborate, and with all consequences, . . . → Read More: Solidarity with the just reparation demands of the Herero people in Namibia!

50th Anniversary of the military victory over Nazi Fascism The Potsdam Agreement: May1995/ln English July 1995_ May 8th 1995 a sharp weapon for ummaskimg German imperialisms revanctilsm and militarism Whoever has been attentively following the debates or phoney debates in Germany in the last few weeks knows that the two “opposing” camps are merely making a pretence of disagreement. Those who describe the 8th of May as the day of “Germany’s subjugation” and boast that they have never “broken their oath to Adolf Hitler, are not so very far removed from the others who behave as iff there had been a real “liberation” after May 8th and conclude that “today’s Germany” has no resemblance whatsoever to Germany before the 8th of May. The Potsdam Agreement is a sharp weapon which refutes both of these apparently contradictory propaganda strands of German imperialism, militarism and revanchism today. Although one must not overlook other essential aspects of the Potsdarn Agreement, we must be aware that today the propaganda aiming at revising historical fact on the totally justified resettlement of so-called “Ethnic Germans” from Eastern Europe has become a focal point in the ideological offensive of German imperialism. This is something we must actively oppose particularly with the help of the Potsdam Agreement. Reactionary ideologists of the Alfred Dregger sort concentrate on describing the resettlement of Nazi supporters from Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary according to the decisions of Potsdam as “expulsion” and as “agrossinjustice”. And what answer is being made to them? Yes, they say, it’s true, this . . . → Read More: 50th Anniversary of the military victory over Nazi Fascism The Potsdam Agreement:

It had leaked out that Just was a volunteer in the Nazi-Wehrmacht when German imperialism attacked the Soviet Union; Gustav Just participated in the murder of Jewish prisoners stately-organized by the Nazis in the USSR. The circumstances of his resignation says a great deal about the way Nazi War Crimes arc dealt with by the press of West/German imperialism: they systematically play them down or hush them up altogether. But these circumstances also tell us about the way the SED suppressed and hushed up the memory of Nazi crimes in the Soviet Occupied Zone and the GDR. SPD and CDU – Their “Indignation” About Untried Nazi Criminals Is Pure Hypocrisy The “Just Case” demonstrates that Gustav Just’s Nazi crimes are only used as “small change” in the party political squabbling between the SPD, CDU and all the other parties in Bonn. Hushing up the Nazi past of people “from their own ranks” and “unmask ing” Nazi criminals in other parties if party politics require it – that’s the hy pocritical morals of both CDU and SPD.

International Womens’ Day, March 8: Organ for the Building of the Marxist-Leninist Party of West Germany March 1992 Clara Zetkin – for the rights of proletarian women in the fight for communism The livingand working conditions of the great majority of women – women of Uieproletariatand other working women – are worsening more and more. West/German fmpcrialits have almost completely rescinded the prohibition against night-work for women. Passibili tics for abortion have been massively restricted (the planned toughening of Paragraph 218). Ever more Kindergarden school places are being eliminated (especially in the ex-GDR). Working women are being dismissed by the hundreds of thousands and they find it increasingly difficult to find another job – except at home in front of the stove. And precisely those women already largely without rights, namely working women from other countries, are being increasingly exploited and oppressed. On International Women’s Day on March 8th, the spotlight is taken by those professionals at shooting their mouths off, who speak up for the capitalistic system: male and female politicians of bourgoise political parties, specialists of the labor unions, representatives of various so-called ‘womens’ organizations’, etc Precisely all those directly or indirectly responsible for the worsening situation of women, now hypocritically raise a hue and cry that they arc for the equality of women and against their neglect It’s clearly no coincidence that one of the true pioneering fighters for the equality of women, the firmly dedicated communist Clara Zetkin isn’t mentioned with one word, is even ignored.

February 1992 The Wannsee Conference of 1942 Rembember everything!

February 1992 The Wannsee Conference of 1942 Rembember everything! 50 years ago on January 20,1942, Nazi-fascist executioners, the henchmen of German monopoly capital, met in a Berlin villa to co-ordinate and perfect the already-begun genocide of the Jewish (and the Cinti and Roma) populations of Europe. A historic world example should be and was made. The factory-like, industrial murder of entire peoples that was the plan. And it was carried out to a large extent. It was mainly the fight of the peoples of the Soviet Union under the leadership of the CPSU(B) and Stalin which was able to put an end to the Nazi murder machine İn the extermination camps in Poland. But this very important realization of this fact doesn’t suffice for the communist world movement and especially not for German communist forces. The “Normal Terror” of the Nazi Facists The task for communist forces, especially in Germany, after Gennari imperialism was beaten down by the Anti-Hitler Coalition and the antiNazi fight of the peoples, was to understand the entire dimension of Nazi facism and to make İt understandable within the working class. What happened? And why? The Worker’s Movement was struck down in 1933; its organizations and those of the KPD (Communist Party of Germany) were largely shattered. Prisons and concentration camps were filled with men and women comrades of the KPD. Racist, Nazi anti-Semitism had no serious domestic opposition in Germany, it could show its bloody, murderous face in 1938 in stateorganized pogroms throughout the country, Hardly a resistance worth . . . → Read More: February 1992 The Wannsee Conference of 1942 Rembember everything!

Why West/German Imperialism Recognizes Croatia

Why West/German Imperialism Recognizes Croatia January 1992 Not a day goes by without West/German imperialist media blowing their trumpets heralding new “success” stories in East European countries and the states of the ex-Soviet Union. Croatian ultra-facists in the Croatian portion of Yugoslavia are openly supported in order to drive on the dismembering of Yugoslavia in the interests of West/German imperialism. Politically extreme reactionary forces are stirring almost everywhere, in Latvia and Georgia, in Rumania and in Czechoslovakia. These forces more or less openly cultivate that old, well-known mixture of nationalism, anti-communism, religion, antisemitism and the courting of the German Nazi regime which, even at the time of the German Nazi-facist invasions between 1939 and 1945 , was to be found among Nazi collaborators in all countries. The diplomatic recognition of Croatia (and Slovenia – a subject to be dealt with separately) marks a decisive point in the aggressive policies of West/German imperialism, revanchism and militarism. The concerns here are not such noble goals as Ute “right to setf-detemiinatioa of nations’ ‘, “protection of minorities”, “democracy” and “freedom” or any other of the seif-proclaimed aspirations of the imperialistic great powers. The concern here is singly and solely imperialistic power-politics, spheres of influence and the right to exploit the peoples of Yugoslavia. Anything else is pretense and pure hypocrisy. And in this competition West/German imperialists have won some decisive plus-points in their rivalry with US imperialism, but also against their West European competitors.

POGROMS! Nazis are doing the dirty work for CDU/SPD/FDP/GREENS who have long proclaimed a policy of “deterrence”: Organ for the building of the Marxist-Leninist Party of West Germany October 1991 in English June 1995 After state organs, media and ali politicai parties in Bonn propagated a policy of “containment by deterrence” against asylum seekers, neo-Nazi forces in West Germany and the former GDR madearson attacks on over 100 asylum seekers’ housing facilities in the last few weeks: Dozens of seriously injured people, the murder of asylum applicants Samuel Yeboah from Ghana and two heavily burned children from Lebanon – Mukadesh and Zainap Saado – after an arson attack in Huenxe are the result… and the arson attacks continue day after day. In West Germany and the former GDR, a deeply reactionary policy towards refugees applying for asylum has been executed for months, even years on end. By means of the traditional policy of “divide and rule” West/German imperialism attempts – not without success – to incite parts of the German population against asylum seekers.

In the long run the workers of the Soviet Union will bring to an end this anti-Communist and revisionist nightmare, with another proletarian revolution! Neither Gorbachov, nor Yeltsin, nor the “Brezhnevists” will lead the Soviet Union out of decay and crisis! I There is no point in deceiving oneself: what is going on in the Soviet Union at the moment is alarming in every respect. The Yeïtsin bandits have succeeded in roping considerable parts of the working population as well as of the working class in their policy and in the Great Russian chauvinism. They are passively watching the obvious surrender of their country, or more precisely: the further surrender to Western imperialists. The gigantic exploitation of the “movement” which led to the failure of the “putsch” carried out by some Brezhncvist military apparatchiks gives rise to the assumption that this “putsch” was not really that much of a threat, but rathcraself-made provocation by Yeltsin, the West GcrmanFcderaİ Intelligence S er vice and the CIA in order to get rid of revisionist forms more quickly and to hand power over to openly reactionary forces.

No Illusions About West/German Imperialism!

June 1991 50 years ago, German imperialism attacked the thensocialist Soviet Union:

With the Nazi-German attack on the socialist Soviet Union on June 22, 1941, Gennari imperialism was pursuing a number of far-reaching goals. After having successfully forced its program of a “New Orderin Europe” upon almost all of Europe by means of war and terror, and having transformed that area into its own hinterland, it saw that the time was now ripe to deal with the Soviel Union, the most powerful opponent ofthat program and the most decisive road-block on the path to world domination. From the very outset, the Nazis made no secret of the fact that what, in their jargon, they called the ■ “Jewish-Bolshevik World Conspiracy,’ ‘ was their main enemy. Blood-thirsty anti-communism and barbaric racial hatred were characteristics and phenomenaof Nazi fascism and accompanied thefascist “campaignsaf exterrni nation.” Underthis banner, they implemented the enslavement of other peoples under the knout of Germanimperialism, and the exploitation of their resources. These goals could only be completely implemented by means of the complete crushing of the socialist Soviet Union. For the Soviet Union, in which the system of exploitation and oppression of the working people, the system of the enslavement and humiliation of peoples, had been removed, was a source of attraction and an example for the exploited and oppressed throughout the world. German imperialism was possessed of a war machine big enough to match these ambitions, and this was launched against the Soviet Union. The military machine mat was set in motion on June 22, 1941 in order to roll over the Soviet . . . → Read More: June 1991 50 years ago, German imperialism attacked the thensocialist Soviet Union:

October 3, 1990 The West German bourgeoisie in triumph; October 3,1990 is intended to put the seal on the complete legal and political annexation of the GDR and West Berlin. The final stroke is intended to be drawn under the “Post-War Era”. West German imperialists are celebrating, since ail the consequences of World War II which resulted from the unconditional surrender of Germany to the powers of the “Anti-Hitler Coalition”, are now finally intended to be undone. The results of the so-called “2 + 4 Discussions” seem to prove them right. These four states have “forgotten and forgiven” everything. But the peoples of the world know and remember: A new chapter in the blood-stained history of (West)German imperialism has begun. Karl Marx’s Collis More Current Than Ever: Fight the German Conditions! “Fight the German conditions! Absolutely ! They are beneath the dignity of history, they are below all criticism, but they remain the object of criticism, just as the criminal beneath the level of humanity remains the object of the executioner. In the fight against them critique in no passion of the head, it is the head of passion. It is no anatomical scalpel, it is a weapon. Its object is its enemy, whom it wishes not to refute, but to destroy. It is a question of not allowing the Germans even a single moment of self-deception and resignation.

Westgerman Imperialism Foments the Atmosphere of Pogroms During the last weeks and months Westgerman imperialism has been intensifying his acts for strengthening German chauvinism in the minds of the people. Racist and fascist measures against freedom fighters and political persécutées in general who are seeking asylum here, have been strengthened . Now they propagate guite openly – what they have done before a bit more silentlythe deportation of political persécutées to their persecuting countries by the Federal Border Police and the Foreigner Police; now they are inciting the population and are agitating directly against those who believe in getting shelter from war and political persecution in the Federal Republic. The atmosphere of pogroms fomented by this already shows its “success”: assaults on refugee homes, happened at last in Ergolding {Kreis Landshut), “civil militia”, which prevent the “refugees from taking up guarters” by using violencewhich is tolerated by the police. These are no single cases but , on the contrary, they are ever more spreading. The entire propaganda machine of Westgerman imperialism – a well oiled machinery with means which would had made a Goebbels green with envy – is bawling and purring, inciting and “suggests”: Close the borders and expel the refugees !

MAKING PEACE WITHOUT WEAPONS IN SOUTH-AFRICA?

MAKING PEACE WITHOUT WEAPONS IN SOUTH-AFRICA ?

Everybody knows the slogan “Making Peace Without Weapons”. The absurdity of this demand is actually shown in South-Africa. With the establishment of the martial law on July 21st 1985, the South-African racistregime only legalized the State terror and’ carried it through on a larger scale. However all this has already been practised daily for one year now in order to oppress the spontaneous resistance movement of the Blacks,which has been expanding very rapidly. The Blacks are no longer willing to be treated like somebody of second class. The increasing resistance of the Black masses cannot be stopped any longer :

* illegal mass strikes of the workers in the mining- and automobile industry against hunger wages, racism in the fac tories, against corporal punishment and mass dismissals,as well as deportations in the so-called “Homelands” * strongest resistance against forcible re settlements by the police, which ended in street-battles longing several days * militant election boycott * powerful pupils’ demonstrations against racist educational policy These are only a few examples of the recent past. According to official statements, a~ bout 5oo people were killed from September 1984 till July 1985. Political resistanceleaders estimate that at least 1 ooo people were murdered by the police and the army already until October 1984 !
