Ukraine | Odessa Report 1, Arriving in Kiev: What Happened on the Maidan 5 Years Ago?

by Joe Lombardo

I am in Kiev, Ukraine with Pippa Bartolotti, a UNAC supporter from Wales, on our way to Odessa where there will be a mobilization to remember the massacre of more than 40 people who were at the Odessa House of Trade Unions on May 2, 2014. The people at the House of Trade Unions were holding a vigil to protest the US supported coup that took place in Maidan starting in late 2013. The massacre was carried out by right-wing, pro-fascist forces many associated with the Right Sector, a coalition of pro-fascist organizations who had come to Odessa from throughout the country for a soccer match and used the opportunity to attack the protesters. More than 40 were killed and around 100 injured and although there are many cell phone videos showing people shooting the protesters and Molotov cocktails being made and thrown, no one has been prosecuted for the murders.

USA | Iran: Preparing the ‘Battle Space’

by Alastair Crooke

Bernard Lewis, a British-American historian of the Middle East, has been formidably influential in America – his policy ideas have towered over Presidents, policy-makers and think-tanks, and they still do. Though he died last year, his baleful views still shape America’s thinking about Iran. Mike Pompeo, for example, has written: “I met him only once, but read much of what he wrote. I owe a great deal of my understanding of the Middle East to his work … He was also a man who believed, as I do, that Americans must be more confident in the greatness of our country, not less”.

U.S. War Drums Beat Louder and Louder

U.S. Hands Off Iran and Venezuela!

As we go to press the U.S. war drums are beating louder and louder.

As part of a mounting series of U.S. provocations against Iran, the U.S. State Department has ordered all «non-critical government employees» to leave Iraq on the grounds that, «U.S. intelligence has learned that Iran is planning strikes on U.S. forces in Iraq.» U.S. Central Command in the region reported in a statement on May 13 that, «U.S. troops are now at a high level of alert as we continue to monitor credible and possibly imminent threats to U.S. forces in Iraq.»

Declaration of the Organising Committee of the Internationalist Socialists of Algeria (COSI)

Ever since the beginning of the democratic and revolutionary mobilisation that emerged in Algeria on 22 February, the Organising Committee of the Internationalist Socialists of Algeria (COSI) has affirmed consistently that the answer to the aspiration of the entire Algerian nation to take its destiny into its own hands is to be found in the election of a Sovereign Constituent Assembly, the only means capable of establishing the form and content of what national sovereignty and democracy should be and the only means to etch in stone all democratic and workers’ rights.
