Abortion rights: U.S Communist and Left forces react to Supreme Court's ruling

The recent ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) which overturned Roe v. Wade thus ending the decades-long constitutional right of women to abortion has created a wave of protests throughout the United States, as well as abroad.  

In a comment on social media, the Party of Communists (PCUSA) writes: “As rent and living costs increase for working women, the Supreme Court overturned the monumental Roe v. Wade decision that protected a woman's constitutional right to an abortion. Alongside this dishonorable decision, Judge Clarence Thomas advocated for the reconsideration of laws on contraceptives, same-sex relationships, and same-sex marriages".

Mexican communists: On the participation of Mexico in U.S. Southern Command military drills

In a statement about Mexico's participation in inter-imperialist military drills sponsored by the U.S. Southern Command, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Mexico (PCM) stresses out:

We condemn the participation of the Mexican State in inter-imperialist military exercises and the strengthening of forces of repression.

We consider it very serious that the Mexican army is participating in the Tradewinds military exercises sponsored by the U.S. Southern Command. This action is an expression of the inter-imperialist alliances in which various bourgeois states participate (Belize, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, the United States of America, France, Guyana, Holland, Jamaica, the United Kingdom, the Dominican Republic, and Suriname).

Air Force base in Lakenheath, Eastern England

In a statement the Young Communist League East of England explores the grave dangers of US Nuclear Weapons' presence in Britain and demands the immediate disengagement from NATO and the closure of all US bases in the country. The statement reads:

England has for many years been plagued with an unwanted menace, growing like cancer across its green fields and spilling over into its towns and cities. It began in the summer of 1949 when two groups of American B29 bombers arrived supposedly for “training purposes.” It was a short stay, the government said — they soon would be leaving us.

KKE: The imperialist war in Ukraine and the stance of the Russian Communist Workers’ Party (RCWP)

 Article of the International Relations Section of the CC of the KKE

On the stance of the RCWP on the imperialist war in Ukraine

Following the article on the stance of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (CPRF), we would also like to respond to some questions about the stance of the Russian Communist Workers’ Party (RCWP) regarding the war in Ukraine; questions which also arise from some unfounded remarks made by the RCWP about the Resolution of the CC of the KKE that some “well-intentioned” people, who are hostile to the principled positions of the KKE and support the geopolitical plans of the Russian bourgeoisie, took care to translate into Greek and disseminate in various media outlets.

KKE: On the imperialist war in Ukraine and the stance of the CPRF

By the International Relations Section of the CC of the KKE.

“A struggle for markets and for freedom to loot foreign countries, a striving to suppress the revolutionary movement of the proletariat and democracy in the individual countries, a desire to deceive, disunite, and slaughter the proletarians of all countries by setting the wage slaves of one nation against those of another so as to benefit the bourgeoisie; these are the only real content and significance of the war. ” - V.I. Lenin, The Tasks of Revolutionary Social-Democracy in the European War, Collected Works, Vol 26, pp 1

All the above, underscored by the leader of the October Revolution more than one century ago, are absolutely true as regards the war in Ukraine. Many articles to date have highlighted aspects of the fight over markets, raw materials, and commodity transport routes.

The struggle against the imperialist war in Ukraine and Greece's participation in it

By Giorgos Marinos,

The imperialist war in Ukraine, following the unacceptable invasion of Russia, continues. The conflict between the USA, NATO, EU with capitalist Russia carries the risk of generalization and Greece is “up to the neck” on the side of Euro-Atlanticism. The government, with the support of SYRIZA and KINAL, has transformed the country into a military base. The US bases, for which all governments bear responsibility, are used. Greek military unites and armaments are sent to the “eastern front”.
