"If machines produce everything we need, the outcome will depend on how things are distributed. Everyone can enjoy a life of luxurious leisure if the machine-produced wealth is shared, or most people can end up miserably poor if the machine-owners successfully lobby against wealth redistribution. So far, the trend seems to be toward the second option, with technology driving ever-increasing inequality."
- Stephen Hawking (1942-2018),
on Reddit Journal of Science, Oct. 2015.

Regarding yesterday's incidents and interruption of the football game between PAOK and AEK in Thessaloniki, the Press Office of the CC of the KKE issued the following statement:
"Yesterday's images in PAOK's stadium consist the mirror of the decay of football and big businessmen. What if the laws became stricter, what if foreign supervisors of UEFA came, what if the Greek Football Federation changed, what if professional judges were appointed? What remains is the "football" of the big businessmen who, under the tolerance and support of all governments - including the current one- play their own political and economic games on the backs of the teams and (football) fans. That is why the situation not only does not improve, but goes from bad to worse.

Mr. Khamenei, it is you and the rule of the disastrous theocratic regime that are anti-revolution!
- Greetings to the workers of the National Steel Company in the city of Ahvaz,in their heroic and steadfast struggle, and all the workers and working people of the nation!
- The Supreme Leader of the theocratic regime should be reminded that the definition of anti-revolutionary is clear. It is the force that diverted the revolution from the path of its core slogans for freedom, sovereignty and social justice, and which has imposed the rule of a medieval and despotic theocratic regime on the nation.

The road for businesses to ‘legally” fire even pregnant women workers has been opened by the unacceptable decision of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) that was taken on the 22nd of February, reaffirming the repulsive aspect of the EU's anti-labor policy and the extreme hypocrisy of the predatory alliance which presents itself as a supposed protector of social rights, motherhood and the most "vulnerable" members of society.
In response to a query from a Spanish court, the CJEU considers "legal" the firing of a pregnant woman in a Spanish company in 2013, as part of the mass firings carried out by the employers. At the same time, with the outrageous reasoning that dismissal of a pregnant worker is permissible as long as the stated reason for her dismissal is not the her pregnancy itself, the CJEU paves the way for a generalized launching of firings of pregnant women which is already being pushed through by large companies.

Istanbul's new airport: Galley-slave labour conditions and occupational murders for sultan Erdogan's sake!
According to interesting reports by soL international, construction workers held a protest on February 1 at Istanbul’s third airport project site, showing the reaction against the poor working conditions and non-payments.

The protestor workers say their shuttle services are inadequate and the food service is so poor that they have to sleep hungry since their work shifts and shuttle hours are irregular.

J.V.Stalin- The International Character of the October Revolution (Speech on the 10th Anniversary of the October Revolution)
Speech by Joseph Stalin on the occasion of the Tenth Anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution; Pravda, November 6-7, 1927.
Source: J.V.Stalin, Works, Foreign Languages Publishing House,
Moscow, 1954, Vol.10, pp. 244-55.
The October Revolution cannot be regarded merely as a revolution "within national bounds." It is, primarily, a revolution of an international, world order, for it signifies a radical turn in the world history of mankind, a turn from the old, capitalist world to the new, socialist world.

Dublin City Council is considering using a section of the Mountjoy prison campus to help deal with the capital's homeless problem. The Department of Justice has offered the training unit of Dublin's largest prison to the local authority, which is now considering it to house homeless people. The training unit is separated from the main section of the jail and was closed earlier this year.
At the time of its closure the unit had a capacity of 96 beds. Independent councillor Mannix Flynn said the council was considering using the facility to alleviate the city's current homelessness crisis. [...] The latest figures show there are 8,500 people without a home, 3,500 of whom are children, but there are fears the number could increase as the country heads into Christmas week, as the figures were compiled in October.

All in the strike rallies in all cities! We fight back!
Let’s give a militant response to the new measures of impoverishment of the working people!
The positive climate that the government of SYRIZA - ANEL is trying to cultivate all along this time through the tale of the “just development” does not contain anything positive for the working people, since a new wave of anti-popular measures is being planned. The "just development" that the government promotes and defends, means further assault on the life of the working-people family with further abolition of rights and advances.

General Strike on December 14th in Greece - Workers to give a powerful response to SYRIZA government
Source: All-Workers Militant Front.
Last week in Greece, the working class witnessed a series of incidents that showed a strong escalation of state oppression and employers' intimidations against workers
The workers of supermarkets in Ioannina, the students and the workers of the Universities, outside the Ministry of Education, but also the protesters in the courts against the banks auctioning off peoples’ homes, were not the first to suffer persecutions, arrests, violent repression and tear gas.
The over 18 months unpaid workers of the super markets of Ioannina who struggle for their right to work and their salaries, the students who in the year 2017 literally demand a decent meal and the workers who protect their homes, were within a few hours targeted by the SYRIZA-ANEL government.
