Für ein revolutionäres Jahr 2010 – for a revolutionary 2010 – pour une 2010 révolutionnaire !

Posted by entdinglichung - 31. Dezember 2009

Liebe rote Grüsse an alle, die für ein Leben jenseits von kapitalistisch-patriarchalischer Vergesellschaftung und gegen die Vernutzung von Mensch und Welt kämpfen (regelmässig wird diese Webseite wieder in gut zwei Wochen aktualisiert werden) … auf dass 2010 die Weltrevolution stattfindet oder immerhin etwas erreicht wird: beispielsweise Freiheit für Mumia Abu-Jamal (und alle politischen Gefangenen weltweit), Sturz des Regimes im Iran, erfolgreicher Widerstand gegen weitere Regenwaldabholzungen in Indien und Brasilien, Aufschwung sozialer Kämpfe und emanzipatorischer Bewegungen in Ägypten, Südkorea, USA, Argentinien (und vielleicht sogar in Britannien und der BRD), etc. … und erinnern wir uns an diejenigen, welche uns seit dem Jahr 2009 fehlen Siegfried Nieswandt, Eva Dockerill und Karl-Heinz Zietlow, Leni Jungclas, Willi Scherer, Karim Majiid, Ehsan Fattahian, Mercedes Sosa, Upali Cooray, John Saville, Guillermo Lora, Paul Parin, Mario Benedetti, Augusto Boal, Hong Khoa Khoi, Abel Paz, Horst Stowasser, Yessie Macchie, Bob Robideau, Anastasia „Skat“ Baburova, Josefa (Pepita) Reimundi i Florensa, die ermordeten GewerkschafterInnen und BäuerInnenbewegungsaktivistInnen in Guatemala, Kolumbien und anderswo, und vielen anderen bekannten und unbekannten GenossInnen weltweit, möge die Erde ihnen leicht sein:

Ferdinand Freiligrath: Die Revolution (1851)

Und ob ihr sie, ein edel Wild, mit euren Henkersknechten fingt;
Und ob ihr unterm Festungswall standrechten die Gefang’ne gingt;
Und ob sie längst der Hügel deckt, auf dessen Grün ums Morgenrot
Die junge Bäurin Kränze legt – doch sag ich euch: sie ist nicht tot!

Und ob ihr von der hohen Stirn das weh’nde Lockenhaar ihr schort;
Und ob ihr zu Genossen ihr den Mörder und den Dieb erkort;
Und ob sie Zuchthauskleider trägt, im Schoß den Napf voll Erbsenbrei;
Und ob sie Werg und Wolle spinnt – doch sag‘ ich kühn euch: sie ist frei!

Und ob ihr ins Exil sie jagt, von Lande sie zu Lande hetzt;
Und ob sie fremde Herde sucht, und stumm sich in die Asche setzt;
Und ob sie wunde Sohlen taucht in ferner Wasserströme Lauf –
Doch ihre Harfe nimmermehr an Babels Weiden hängt sie auf!

O nein – sie stellt sie vor sich hin; sie schlägt sie trotzig, euch zum Trotz!
Sie spottet lachend des Exils, wie sie gespottet des Schafotts!
Sie singt ein Lied, daß ihr entsetzt von euren Sesseln euch erhebt;
Daß euch das Herz – das feige Herz, das falsche Herz! – im Leibe bebt!

Kein Klagelied! kein Tränenlied! kein Lied um jeden, der schon fiel;
Noch minder gar ein Lied des Hohns auf das verworfne Zwischenspiel,
Die Bettleroper, die zur Zeit ihr plump noch zu agieren wißt,
Wie mottig euer Hermelin, wie faul auch euer Purpur ist!

O nein, was sie den Wassern singt, ist nicht der Schmerz und nicht die Schmach –
Ist Siegeslied, Triumpheslied, Lied von der Zukunft großem Tag!
Der Zukunft, die nicht fern mehr ist! Sie spricht mit dreistem Prophezei’n,
So gut wie weiland euer Gott: Ich war, ich bin – ich werde sein!

Ich werde sein, und wiederum voraus den Völkern werd‘ ich gehn!
Auf eurem Nacken, eurem Haupt, auf euren Kronen werd‘ ich stehn!
Befreierin und Rächerin und Richterin, das Schwert entblößt,
Ausrecken den gewalt’gen Arm werd‘ ich, daß er die Welt erlöst!

Ihr seht mich in den Kerkern bloß, ihr seht mich in der Grube nur,
Ihr seht mich nur als Irrende auf des Exiles dorn’ger Flur –
Ihr Blöden, wohn‘ ich denn nicht auch, wo eure Macht ein Ende hat:
Bleibt mir nicht hinter jeder Stirn, in jedem Herzen eine Statt?

In jedem Haupt, das trotzig denkt? das hoch und ungebeugt sich trägt?
Ist mein Asyl nicht jede Brust, die menschlich fühlt und menschlich schlägt?
Nicht jede Werkstatt, drin es pocht? nicht jede Hütte, drin es ächzt –
Bin ich der Menschheit Odem nicht, die rastlos nach Befreiung lechzt?

Drum werd‘ ich sein, und wiederum voraus den Völkern werd‘ ich gehn!
Auf eurem Nacken, eurem Haupt, auf euren Kronen werd‘ ich stehn!
‚S ist der Geschichte eh’rnes Muß! es ist kein Rühmen, ist kein Drohn –
Der Tag wird heiß – wie wehst du kühl, o Weidenlaub von Babylon!

Hände weg von den iranischen GenossInnen

Posted by entdinglichung - 29. Dezember 2009

Aus Anlass der im Auftrag des iranischen Regimes eingeleiteten Fahndung von Interpol nach iranischen GenossInnen, gefunden auf La Bataille Socialiste … aktuelle Informationen zu den Protesten im Iran auf dem Blog von Ali Schirasi, auf Révolution en Iran und auf Street Journalist:

Pétition: Ne touchez pas aux militants iraniens !

A l’attention du secrétaire général d’INTERPOL, des autorités gouvernementales nationales et internationales

La Cour de justice de Sanandaj, province du Kurdistan, République Islamique d’Iran a demandé à Interpol d’émettre une « notice rouge » à l’encontre de douze dirigeants, militants et sympathisants du Parti communiste-ouvrier d’Iran – Hekmatiste. Ils sont accusés de «terrorisme» pour les uns, de «crime organisé transnational» pour les autres.

Ces personnes sont Asadollah Golchini, Ali Abdali, Rahmatollah Fatehi, Abdollah Darabi, Khaled Haji Mohammadi, Rahman Hosseinzadeh Yekshaveh, Kurosh Modaresi (secrétaire général du PCOI-H), Mozafar Mohhamadi, Tofigh Pirkhezri, Mohammad Saleh Sardari et Islam Zigi.

Opposé au régime islamique, le Parti communiste-ouvrier d’Iran – Hekmatiste est interdit en Iran. Il est particulièrement implanté au Kurdistan, puisant ses origines dans la résistance contre le régime de l’ayatollah Khomeiny dans les années 1980.

Le tribunal de Sanandaj a déjà prononcé de nombreuses condamnations à mort contre des militants d’opposition. Il participe à la répression contre le mouvement social qui a suivi les élections présidentielles de l’été 2009. Cette « notice rouge » constitue donc un danger pour ces douze personnes, dont bon nombre sont aujourd’hui réfugiés politique en Europe, car leur sort ne fait aucun doute si elles venaient à être extradées en Iran – alors que rien ne garantit leur droit à un procès équitable, rien ne les protège de la torture et du risque d’une condamnation à mort pour des motifs purement politiques.

Nous demandons en conséquence que ces douze personnes soient retirées de la liste des « notices rouges d’Interpol », et que cette organisation internationale refuse de donner suite aux demandes politiques visant des militants d’opposition.

Spendenaufruf zur Unterstützung der Familien von vier verunglückten pakistanischen GenossInnen

Posted by entdinglichung - 25. Dezember 2009

Quelle: ESSF:

NTUF/LEF/LPP: Appeal to support families of Comrades died in accident

Dear friends and comrades,

We have lost our four most brilliant comrades Abdul Salam, Najma Khanum, Rehana Kausar and Wahid Baloch in a road accident on 13th December 2009 near Ormara, Baloachistan. They were in the coastal region, one of the most deprived areas of the country, to organize the home based women workers (HBWW) on one plate form. They held two focus group meetings and a wider consultation on 11-12 and 13 December in port cities of Pasni and Gawadar. They also formed core groups and clusters of local HBWW and planned to organize more meeting in the region in month of January next year.

Comrades Abdul Salam, Najma Khanum, Rehana Kausar and Wahid Baloch were dedicated members of the team who lost their lives for the cause of downtrodden masses and were on mission till their last breath. Another member of team, Mohammed Rafiq Baloch, central president National Trade Union Federation, Pakistan (NTUF) survived but severely injured in that fatal accident.

Comrade Abdul Salam, Najma Khanum and Rehana Kausar were the staff members of Labour Education Foundation (LEF). While Wahid Baloch was trade union activist in industrial city of Hub and by profession he was a driver.

Abdul Salam, 29 was working as coordinator on peace, democracy and trade union issues. He was also elected central Finance Secretary of National Trade Union Federation, Pakistan (NTUF) in 2007. He was the Secretary of Labour Party Pakistan, Karachi chapter for 2007-2009. Comrade Abdul Salam had initiated number of awareness activities for the trade union members, young students and political activists. He conducted 6 regular monthly study circles on social, economic and political issues in different localities of working class. He was the guiding force behind his last initiative of six-month training course on labour laws for new and young trade union activists in a view to build a team of committed workers who represent workers in labour courts.

He was on the of editorial board of weekly Mazdoor Jeddojehad for two years. He was also a regular contributor in respect of articles to Mazdoor Jeddojehad in Urdu and Pashto and was the main source for the LEF’s monthly “Newsletter’. He had translated a Pashto novel of Noor Mohammed Tarakai in to Urdu. He was Pashto poet of good repute and organizer of the “Jurs”, a progressive Pashto literary forum in Karachi. He belonged to working class family and started his career as textile worker in Al Karam Textile Mill, where he was expelled from job nine year ago because of trade union activities. He contested the management in court and won the case in October 2009.

Najma Khanum, 38 was social activist and was the former local body’s councilor of the area, mainly comprising of working class. She had been staff member of LEF since 2003. She was the social Mobilizers to organize home based women workers. She was the leader of her community and always at the forefront of all political, trade union and woman rights related rallies and demonstrations. She formed a women theatre group of young girls with the title of “Apna Theatre”, means “Our Theatre”. Their performances on May Day, Women day and on other important events were always important portion of the programs. She was also a former member of Pakistan National Squad of women field hockey. She served LPP as women secretary of Karachi chapter for two years from 2007 to 2009. She had been running the home based women workers cooperative in Yousuf Ghoth for four years.

Rehana Kausar, 26 was one of the youngest staff member of LEF. She started to work as part time teacher at adult literacy center in Gadap town and become social mobilizer in 2006. She was very energetic and committed with the cause and a great fighter. She was also active member of LPP.

Wahid Baloch, 40 was basically trade union activist and was sacked from job by the Bawani Air Products manufacturing company three years ago where he worked as a driver. His only crime was that he was trying to form union in the factory. No factory was inclined to give him job in Hub city industrial area due to his union related activities. He was involved in all activities of National Trade Union Federation and partly worked as driver with NTUF. All the comrades were from very poor and working class families. Three were working with full time for LEF and fourth one, the driver was an unemployed trade unionist.

Comrade Abdul Salam leaves behind two little kids, two and four year old and a young widow. Salam was the only one working. Najma leaves behind three children but to some extent grown up, from 13 to 20, all are studying. Her husband has job of contractual nature with very little earnings, living in rented house. Driver Wahid Baloch leaves behind 6 young kids, the eldest is only 14. Wahid was only the source to run the home. His old father and mother also live with his family in rented house. While, Rehana was not yet married, but one of the nine sisters and brothers and one of the two bread winners among them. She was also only hope for her old aged bedridden mother and father.

We as representatives of LEF, NTUF and LPP jointly pledge to do our best to cater the needs of their families and to work hard for the accomplishment of the cause for which they scarified their lives. In this respect we need your help. We appeal to entire circle of our friend, comrades and well wishers to come forward to show their solidarity with families of our shining comrades. We are launching this appeal to all of you to support us for raising 3,000,000 Pak Rupees (35,300 US$) for the permanent well being of the four families. Our plan is to deposit fixed amounts in saving accounts bank in the name of their immediate family members so that they get a regular monthly income and an increased amount after a certain period of time.

In joint meeting of LLP, NTUF and LEF comrades on 19 December in Karachi they have promise to contribute PRs 605,000 (7,120 US$) in response to this appeal.

Your contribution will accommodate financial needs of families of our departed comrades, strengthen the confidence in movement and further the cause working people of Pakistan.

Labour Education Foundation (www.lef.org.pk) is a social organization set up in 1993; its main work is to strengthen trade unions in Pakistan. It has done great work to unionize many unorganized workers and strengthening trade unions especially National Trade Union Federation, Pakistan (NTUF) in Pakistan.

Wie mensch keine Revolution machen kann:

Posted by entdinglichung - 17. Dezember 2009

Gefunden (ohne die Kommentare) im Marxists Internet Archive (MIA):

Auguste Blanqui (1830): Project for a Revolutionary Proclamation (Call to Arms)

„Art 1 – All citizens from 16 to 50 years of age are called upon for the defense of the fatherland and of freedom.“

Das sind ja zwei Dinge auf einmal … das geht nun wirklich nicht!

„Art 2 – Men between 16-30 years of age, armed or unarmed, are to report to the Place de l’Hotel de Ville in order to be organized in battalions.“

Stellt sich die Frage, was in Orten passiert, wo es keinen „Place de l’Hotel de Ville“ gibt … entfällt dort Artikel 2 oder die Revolution?

„Art 3 – Men between 30- 50 shall remain in their neighborhoods in order to prepare resistance there.“

und zur Pflege der Vorgärten?

„Art 4 – Barricades shall be constructed every 50 meters on all streets. The stones should be removed and on the principal streets the stones should be taken to the upper floors in order to be thrown at the troops of Charles X.“

nicht 45 und nicht 55 Meter … die Truppen anderer Monarchen sind hingegen zu verschonen, oder?

„Art 5 – Former military men, officers, non-commissioned officers and soldiers are called to the Hotel de Ville in order to form the cadres of the popular battalions.“

wo bleiben die Politkommissare?

„Art 6 – Commissions will be established for: 1 – provisioning, 2 – armament, 3 – supplying of ammunition. Citizens capable of fulfilling these functions are asked to present themselves to the Hotel de Ville.“

Darf mensch auch zeitgleich mehreren Kommissionen angehören?

„Art 7 – Armorers shall deliver firearms, powder and bullets found in their stores to the people. The state will reimburse them for the price of these objects with a 25% bonus for the risks involved.“

RSB: Towards a broad International at any price?

Posted by entdinglichung - 16. Dezember 2009

Ein lesenswerter Diskussionsbeitrag der GenossInnen des RSB zur Frage des Aufbaus einer revolutionären Internationale, gefunden auf der Webseite der GenossInnen Radical Socialist … warum ist die Fassung in deutscher Sprache noch nicht online?

Towards a broad International at any price?

RSB political secretariat, 12 November 2009

Why we reject the „Role and Tasks of the FI“ draft resolution

As we have explained during different International committee meetings, we have at least six major differences with this text:

1. We think there cannot be a single tactics for building a revolutionary organisation. Yet the text in discussion suggests that there can be a universal building line, although situations in countries may be very different and although most of the sections cannot apply the tactic of regroupment with other forces and still less apply the line of building a broad organisation. Thus “broad parties” cannot be the universal goal in building our organisations.

2. We insist on emphasising that in our opinion there is no reason to play down the difference between reformism and revolutionary Marxism. Moreover: with the current, very grave crisis of capitalism the term “anticapitalist” has come into fashion in the vocabulary of very diverse forces. However, this term is losing its concrete relevance and is no longer sufficient as a guideposts. The tasks before us have not become smaller and there is no objective common ground between reformism and revolutionary communism; on the contrary. With the loss of leeway for reformism, almost all reformist parties are becoming further and further integrated into the capitalist system. As a result, on this level our tasks have become more difficult and complicated, if we do not want to merely cling to the skirts of reformism.

3. The draft resolution fosters the illusion that in the near future we will be able to create a new international or at least a new international framework (“dans la perspective d’un nouveau regroupement international / in the perspective of a new international grouping”). To achieve this goal and facilitate this task, the text proposes to build the 4th International based on “our vision of the future”. But nowhere is this described or is what it involves laid out. Yet what are the programmatic bases we want to struggle for? Without this absolutely necessary clarification, any policy tending to force this course of regroupment and broadening can be a slippery slope towards an adventure with unforeseeable consequences. What do we mean by “21st-century socialism”? This calls for an intense debate within the International in order to learn from our sections’ different experiences and theoretical and programmatic contributions.

4. What is a “pluralistic left”? If it is an inherent value, it calls for more concrete characterisation, because in the absolute, a pluralistic organisation can be anything whatsoever. Just note: the fusion of two reformist currents, claiming to be “open” does not make this into a broad party as some of the authors of the draft resolution are imagining.

5. In the near future, there is no question of us being in a position to rebuild the international workers’ movement. We can make some slight contribution, but setting this reconstruction as a task can lead us to lose sight of what is actually possible, thereby “forgetting” the crucial lessons of the history of the workers’ movement (and our own history).

6. Finally, we need a thorough debate on the evolution of reformist parties (in our opinion, some are former reformists), in particular social-democratic parties. Indeed, it is totally unsuitable to apply a general characterization to all of these parties, as the differences are too major according to the stage of concrete evolution of their shift to the right and their integration to the capitalist order. A collective debate on the criteria to be retained would be very useful as overly rough appreciations (or those that are only orthodox at first glance) can lead us to make huge errors, or paralyse us politically (by holding us prisoner to ritualistic formulas). We have to ask the sections concerned to conduct a recent analysis of the state and evolution of social-democratic and ex-Stalinist parties in their countries. Ascribing a supposedly unchanging class nature, or a function in the current course of the class struggle that is also unchanging is in no way Marxist and can lead us to fail to take real changes into account and to pointlessly chase after reality out of ignorance. Just one example: if the adjective “reformist” is so common in analyses where it is used with no further specification, then it becomes evident that any new social-democratic formation that develops to the left of an existing social-democratic party is automatically “left reformist”. The problem with this is that if we proceed thusly, the descriptors (reformist and left reformist) lose any content. In certain cases, this can lead to profound errors in estimating concrete political evolutions.

This said, we also want to submit some of the explanatory comments we had already made to the International Committee to the Congress preparatory discussion and to the delegates:

Despite wishful thinking and repeated calls we must observe that the left is not joining together in “broad parties”. The question “what party to we want to build”, “what should be the nature of a broad party, if the participation of revolutionary Marxists is to be meaningful or “what processes of unification should we participate in” is truly the decisive question. But this very question is often forgotten.

As long as we do not debate these key questions collectively we won’t make progress. We don’t entirely share Tariq Ali’s observation that “the Left and social movements in Europe (Italy is the most recent example) are in an advanced state of decomposition” but we cannot share in the euphoria, in particular about EACL (European Anticapitalist Left) harboured by some comrades. The EACL project is the most obvious expression of a vague perspective and divergent concepts.

In our opinion the International has the best analyses and a programme that has best passed the test of history, but it is really disoriented in terms of building the revolutionary organisation.

In order to avoid any misunderstanding we insist on making the following comments:

No doubt must arise about our unshakeable orientation favouring an offensive common action policy (united front). The heart of this orientation is and must remain our work in the extraparliamentary opposition and the trade union left.

We are ardent partisans of candidacies in elections. There is no activity that has contributed as much to the dissemination/propagation of our ideas as Olivier’s candidacy.

The current debate must concentrate on the question: how can we take part in truly anticapitalist forces, coalitions or fronts? And secondly: what do we want to achieve in these? Because the process of differentiation between forces that merely fight neoliberalism and those that view themselves as anticapitalist or more precisely “revolutionary” is nowadays the most important differentiation in a good number of countries (probably most European countries).

And when matters are to be dealt with in very concrete terms, in many cases even this distinction will not be sufficient, as very diverse forces claim to be anticapitalist.

The mechanical transposition of a specific model to other countries has led many comrades in the International to speak out for an almost unspecified “broad party”, even in regions and cases where we could not really expect the creation of an anticapitalist force.

We have to draw up a frank balance sheet of our work in “broad parties” because in various countries the formation of “broad parties” has met with failure. In Italy PRC has taken a steady rightward course. In Brazil, the “broad party” project, PT, which even seemed anticapitalist at its beginnings has evolved towards a neoliberal project.

Behind the anti-neoliberal party/anticapitalist party debate, we can discern the older debate opposing reformist party and revolutionary party. One of the key points is the attitude towards the bourgeois state apparatus.

Vier GenossInnen in Pakistan tödlich verunglückt

Posted by entdinglichung - 15. Dezember 2009

Quelle: Labour Party Pakistan (LPP)

Four LEF leaders died in road accident

Farooq Tariq

Najma Khanum, Rehana Kausar and Abdul Salam Salam along with their driver Wahid Baluch lost their lives in a tragic traffic incident at Omara in Baluchistan on 13 December evening. Their car trying to save a donkey turned upside down that came suddenly on the main road. Comrade Abdul Salam was seriously injured, while going to hospital, the ambulance got stuck at a place where there was a overflow of water in a stream that has blocked the road. He spent whole night at the place as there was no way out; he died in the morning at a hospital on 14 December. While, Mohammed Rafiq Baluch president National Trade Union Federation, received minor injuries during the accident is out of danger. The driver Mohammed Wahid Baluch was younger brother of Mohammed Rafiq Baluch.

All five were returning from a consultation meeting at Gwadar on the issue of organizing home based women workers. The meeting was organized by Labour Education Foundation and 31 trade unions, social activists and government labour official participated in the day long consultation on government home based workers national policy document. Earlier, the five attend two other meetings of home based workers in Pasni and Gawadar to discuss the expansion of Home Based Women Workers Association, an organization that was set up few months back in Pakistan.

Najma Khanum joined Labour Education Foundation in 2003 and was one of the senior staff members at Karachi LEF office. She was elected counselor from Gadap Town Karachi and a known social activist. She had participated actively in lawyer’s movement and was part of the rally on 12 May 2007 that came under fire from MQM goons. She narrowly escaped at the time. Najma Khanum joined Labour Party Pakistan in 2007 and took part actively in all the demonstrations and rallies of LPP in Karachi. She travelled extensively in Sind to organize the work of LEF and also the political work of LPP. Najma Khanum was part of the delegation from Pakistan which attended the People SAARC Sri Lanka in 2008.

Rehana Kausar (26), a young women activist joined LEF in 2007 and later became member of LPP as well. A fine orator, she was very active in the formation of home based women workers in the province.

Comrade Abdul Salam Salam was former secretary of Labor Party Pakistan Karachi chapter. He recently voluntarily paved the way for a younger comrade Mukhtiar Raho to be elected as secretary LPP in Karachi. Comrade Salam was member of editorial board of Weekly Mazdoor Jeddojuhd and was a leading trade unionist at a textile factory. He recently won his reinstatement at the factory by an order of a labour court after few years of fighting for his reinstatement. He joined LEF as a union organizer and was instrumental in helping many trade unions in training and registrations. He was running a literary website in Pashto language.

Comrade Wahid Baluch was younger brother of Rafique Baluch, the main leader of one of the radical trade union federation of Pakistan, the National Trade Union Federation. He was always there to help his elder brother by driving him around the province.

All the four dead had a dream of building a strong union for the home based women workers. They had already held a very successful convention with over 500 women at Hyderabad to start the Home Based Women Workers Association last month. They were travelling in several cities and towns to organize this most unorganized sector.

LEF and LPP lost their four of their best comrades in Sindh. The three had made LEF and LPP work in Karachi and Sindh as a main priority of their lives. The working class in Pakistan is poorer now without these four untiring crusaders of their class. They all believed in a Socialist society free of exploitation and for free education and health facilities.

They all lost their lives to safe the live of one animal, a donkey. The very poor infrastructure of the roads in Baluchistan means accidents like this very often. Comrade Salam lost his lives waiting on the road side for the whole night where his ambulance was stuck because of over flow of a stream. He was also a victim of very poor infrastructure.

I have met all of them many times. Comrade Salam was the intellectual backbone of LPP and LEF in Sindh, while Najma Khanum and Rehana Kausar were tireless activists for women and workers rights. Najma Khanum was particularly known in her community for social work and political education. She was always ready to talk politics and activities to promote politics and workers rights.

Red solute to comrades who are no more with us now.

Commune! Nr. 0, Sommer 1977

Posted by entdinglichung - 14. Dezember 2009

Die Nullnummer der Commune! (pdf-Datei, 12,5 mb), mit einem Rundumschlag zur BRD-Linken (u.a. über damaligen Diskussionen zu einer „neuen Linkspartei“), zu Tendenzen in der DissidentInnenbewegung in Osteuropa, zum Eurokommunismus, zum Nito Alves-Putsch in Angola und zur Lage in Südafrika nach dem SchülerInnen-Aufstand in Soweto. Die Commune! wurde von einer Gruppe ehemaliger Mitglieder des Spartacusbundes (Spabu) herausgegeben, welche sich später Kommunistische Liga nannte und 1982 in den Demokratischen Sozialisten (DS) aufging … einige Exmitglieder der Gruppe sind nach wie vor in revolutionären Zusammenhängen aktiv, andere haben beispielsweise in der PDS Berlin Karriere gemacht :-(
