Dockworkers in Italy Denounce Passage of Ship Loaded with Rockets for Israel

A cargo ship loaded with high-precision rockets destined for the Israeli Defense Forces was shipped, semi-clandestinely, to the port of Genoa in Italy, with Ashdod as its final destination. Dockworkers in another Italian port, Livorno, mobilized to denounce this criminal arms trafficking taking place during yet another campaign of Zionist military aggression against the Palestinian people.

Is This the End for the German SPD?

The laughably garish party congress of the once mighty Social Democratic Party is a perfect metaphor for its continued decline.

Silhouette of a crowd cheering in front of a huge sign that says "DIE LINKE," the German leftist party.

Die LINKE: How Left is Germany’s Left Party?

Seen from a distance, Die LINKE might seem pretty cool: A party that opposes war, capitalism, and all border controls gets up to 10 percent in national elections. But it is also a government party, and has applied racist and neoliberal policies since its founding. What would Rosa Luxemburg say?
