Communist employees turn London arms fair upside down

Employees organized a surprise protest at an arms fair in London, by setting off flares and smoke grenades during the event. 

The men were working at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) arms fair at the ExCeL in east London when they set off the flares.

In footage posted by the Young Communist League (YCL), the protesters stood on a carpet outside a stall for security firm Lockheed Martin while dressed in high-viz jackets. They then lifted their arms in the air and set off their smoke grenades as men dressed in suits shuffled past.

Young Communist League of Britain (YCL): Statement on the murder of Sarah Everard and violence against women

The Young Communist League of Britain (YCL) issued a statement in response to the tragic and reprehensible abduction and murder of 33-year-old Sarah Everard by a police officer. 
 
The statement reads:

The news this week that Wayne Couzens currently serving as a Metropolitan Police Officer, has been arrested and charged in connection with the murder of Sarah Everard in London, is a horrific demonstration of the persistent levels of gendered violence against women and girls in Britain and the seismic shifts that must be fought for and won to achieve women’s liberation and equality.

HANDS OFF KARL MARX GRAVE IN LONDON!


Karl Marx, the greatest thinker of all times whose revolutionary teachings became a guide for the struggles of the working class throughout the world, continues giving nightmares to fascists, reactionaries and anti-communists. 

His grave memorial at Highgate cemetery in North London has been a target of cowardly attacks and vandalism by far-right thugs. In 2019, in a space of a month, the grave was vandalized twice by fascists who caused extensive damages in the marble plaque.

Marx Memorial Library — an oasis of education, ideas and history in the heart of London

Dimitris Koutsoumbas at the Marx Memorial Library.
“We are actually in an oasis, here in the heart of London, an oasis of knowledge, education, learning, ideas, history, memory about issues which mainly the young generation, the working class in general, in Britain, Europe and the whole world, must learn. Because the ideas of Marx, Lenin, Engels, of all the great revolutionaries of humanity, are alive and relevant. They are relevant today, until we reach the overthrow of the rotten capitalist system and build a new, really socialist society”.

Capitalism in Britain: Homelessness increased by 165% since 2010

The images are disturbing and show the tragic reality of the rotten capitalist system. 

The statistics about homelessness in the United Kingdom reveal capitalism's barbarity. 

According to a report by The Independent, thousands of people sleep rough every night in the cold streets of London and other large cities. Both the two bourgeois parties which have governed the country all these decades, the Conservatives and the Labour Party, bear huge responsibility for this situation.

London: Fascist vandals attacked the grave memorial of Karl Marx for second time

The grave of Karl Marx in Highgate cemetery in London has been vandalised for the second time in the space of a month. 

The first time was earlier this month when unknown fascist cowards attacked the memorial of Marx causing extending damages in a marble plaque. 

This time, the anticommunist cowards used red paint to write the words “doctrine of hate” and “architect of genocide” across the Grade I-listed monument. 

After the hammer attack earlier this month, the Friends of Highgate Cemetery Trust branded it a “deliberate and sustained attack”.

Karl Marx's grave in London vandalized by fascist cowards

Karl Marx died 136 years ago, but his legacy continues to scare the puppets of capitalism. 
The founder of scientific socialism and writer of the "Capital"- the greatest philosopher in human history- remains a nightmare for the bourgeoisie and her stooges. 
That is why they try to vilify Marxism, Socialism and Communism in any possible way.
This time, some cowards decided to vandalize the tomb of Karl Marx at London's Highgate cemetery, in a targeted attack that means the Grade I-listed monument will “never be the same again”, the Guardian newspaper reports.

Capitalism's queues: London workers are queuing up for free food, can't afford to eat

The various apologists of free market economy and slanderers of the socialist system must get used to a new term: Capitalist queues

According to an interesting report by The Independent, during rush hour on one of London’s most affluent streets, amid the bustle of the Strand, an orderly queue is forming. Dozens of people stand patiently, and hungrily, waiting for their dinner.  

The gathering, near Charing Cross station, comprises people of all ages and ethnicities. 

Some look visibly homeless, clutching large carrier bags containing their worldly possessions. Others wear work clothes. Despite having a job, they can’t afford to eat.

The Grenfell Tower Tragedy: Another crime of Capitalism

“When one individual inflicts bodily injury upon another such that death results, we call the deed manslaughter; when the assailant knew in advance that the injury would be fatal, we call his deed murder. But when society places hundreds of proletarians in such a position that they inevitably meet a too early and an unnatural death, one which is quite as much a death by violence as that by the sword or bullet; when it deprives thousands of the necessaries of life, places them under conditions in which they cannot live – forces them, through the strong arm of the law, to remain in such conditions until that death ensues which is the inevitable consequence – knows that these thousands of victims must perish, and yet permits these conditions to remain, its deed is murder just as surely as the deed of the single individual… 
- Friedrich Engels, Condition of the Working Class in England, 1845.

The New Worker- Thieves falling out


Republished from "New Worker", the weekly paper of the New Communist Party of Britain.

PRIME Minister David Cameron has had a hard week, first the President of the United States has launched a bitter attack on him over Libya and then his own mother joined the Liberal Democrats.

President Obama came to power nearly eight years ago on a pledge that he would not embark on any more foreign wars, and he blames Cameron and former French President Nicholas Sarkozy for dragging him reluctantly into the attack on Libya. It smacks of naughty boys caught out stealing sweets — when it all goes wrong and they get caught blaming each other: “It’s not my fault — he made me do it”.
