PCM-PCPE Joint Statement: Exposing the role of Obrador and Sánchez governments

On the occasion of the official visit of the Prime Minister of the Spanish Government to Mexico, the Communist Party of Mexico and the Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain, united by a fraternal relationship based on the principles of proletarian internationalism, made this public statement.

1. Imperialism has entered a particularly dangerous stage, in which all contradictions increase and the risk of a worldwide confrontation between the different imperialist powers and blocs, in full dispute for a new division of the world, increases. The visit of the Spanish PM to Mexico and the signing of several joint statements between both governments are fully framed in this global dispute, in which both governments defend the interests of the bourgeoisie.

Communist Party of Mexico slams Obrador's "left illusion", calls for class struggle

Since the 1st of December, the new President of Mexico is Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the social democrat politician known by the initials AMLO and head of the MORENA coalition. Although López Obrador is promoted by mainstream media as a "left" change in the country's politics, the truth is that he is another alternative choice of Mexico's bourgeois class for the implementation of pro-capitalist, pro-monopolies policy agenda.

On October 29, President Trump ordered 5200 U.S. troops to the Mexican border in an attempted show of force with a caravan of refugees moving north from Honduras through Mexico.

Mexico Elections: Social Democrats versus Neoliberals, a bourgeois game

Tomorrow, July 1st, Mexicans will elect national and local authorities, including their next president, who will lead the Latin American country for the next six years. With a population of 123 million people, Mexico is a federal state with 32 states and five regions, with a relatively slow growth rates during the last years. 

In these elections there are three major coalitions which include bourgeois parties of both social democratic and neoliberal political orientations. The candidate who has been presented by many mass media as a potential winner of the elections is Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador - also known as AMLO- who is running for the “Together We Will Make History” coalition and is leading the latest polls with an average of at least 46.3% of effective voter intention among likely voters. A former mayor of Mexico City, AMLO has run for the presidency twice and is widely regarded as the "left-wing" candidate in these elections.

Partido Comunista de Mexico: La solidaridad de clase entre los trabajadores es nuestra única opción

Expressing our full solidarity with the working class in Mexico, we publish the following statement made by the Communist Party of Mexico (PCM):
México se enluta otra vez con el sismo que tuvo epicentro en Chiautla, Puebla y que impactó trágicamente a los estados de Veracruz, Puebla, Tlaxcala, Morelos y la Ciudad de México, a sólo unas semanas del que afectó a Oaxaca y Chiapas, sobre todo al Istmo de Tehuantepec. 
Nuevamente el Estado mexicano se ve totalmente rebasado, igual que en 1985, y se demuestra incapaz frente a estas tragedias, y ello es explicable pues la lógica de máxima ganancia a los monopolios hace inviable una política social eficiente con presupuestos reducidos al mínimo, donde además la flagrante corrupción termina por apropiarse de lo poco que queda.

USA / Donald Trump government: Priority in serving the general interests of the capital

Article published on 'Rizospastis' Sunday Edition, 15 January 2017 / Translation: In Defense of Communism.

The priorities of the government of the newly-elected U.S. President, Donald Trump, who takes office on January 20th, do not differ from those of the outgoing President Barack Obama because- despite the existing differences in their declarations- their common denominator is to safeguard the general interests of the bourgeoisie. That doesn't negate a multilevel intra-bourgeois confrontation for the way through which this will be achieved more effectively, especially in a period when the inter-imperialist antagonism is exacerbated, with an estimated relative loss of U.S. leadership in the international capitalist economy and given the difficulties for a more impetuous capitalist recovery. More specifically Trump promotes a different mix of management with stronger elements of protectionism, an issue which however creates difficulties in international trade, which in turn displeases other parts of the (U.S) capital.
