Corbyn storms to victory on anti-austerity ticket

On September 12 left-wing Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader of the Labour Party with 59.5% of the vote. This remarkable landslide victory is a clear sign of resistance to the cuts, austerity, racism and war pursued by successive British governments. It is also a humiliating defeat for the centre and the right wing of the Labour Party.

And now, we’re going to bomb Syria to solve the “migrant problem” ?

During his sixth press conference at the Elysee, Francois Hollande has just formalized what was being said in ministerial corridors for several days. Starting today, French reconnaissance aircrafts will fly over the Syrian territory and raids could begin as soon as possible. France will for the time being coordinate "its efforts” with the anti-Daech international coalition – to bomb not only the positions of the Islamic State in Iraq, but also, from now on, Syria. A response to the flow of refugees by tackling the “root causes”, or the officialization of a new imperialist disaster, already announced?

International Solidarity against Xenophobia in Europe

In recent weeks the “refugee crisis” has become a profound social and political crisis in Europe. The images of tens of thousands of people trying to cross the European borders through the Balkans, Greece, or over the Mediterranean, with thousands of dead, show the severity of this capitalist barbarism. We present a joint statement by the Courant Communiste Révolutionnaire (CCR, France), Clase contra Clase (Spanish State) and Revolutionäre Internationalistische Organisation (RIO, Germany).
