… alle Verhältnisse umzuwerfen, in denen der Mensch ein erniedrigtes, ein geknechtetes, ein verlassenes, ein verächtliches Wesen ist … (Marx)

1.) Aus einem Interview auf Revolution in South Asia mit Kishenji, Kommandeur der People’s Liberation Army und Politbrumitglied der CPI (Maoist) zur „Nationalen Frage“:

„Q: You support Kashmir’s right of self-determination?

A: We do. But only if it is a genuine struggle. If Kashmir wants independence, so be it. But that should cover the whole of Kashmir. We have no patience for religious radicalism. If the Taliban attacks India, we will be the first to fight them. But we cannot deny Kashmir’s aspirations for self-determination. That is a secular aspiration focused on Kashmiriyat, not a Taliban-style religious fanaticism.“

Gleichzeitig konnten PLA und CPI (Maoist) auch 2009 Geländegewinne verbuchen:

2.) Auch die BäuerInnenbewegung in Pakistan kann sich behaupten, Bushra Khaliq, Generalsekretärin von Women Workers Help Line berichtet auf International Viewpoint:

“ … From Lahore we 3 comrades, myself, Nazli and Maqsood attended this meeting and spoke on the occasion to register our continuous solidarity and support with the movement. The most important thing one can feel was the degree of determination on the faces of the tenants. They were as determined today to get their land rights as 10 years ago. The worst degree of state repression by Musharraf regime could not down their morale. The historic tenants’ movement started in year 2000 is now ten-year old. The decade of their long struggle is studded with matchless sacrifices, rigorous resistance and unwavering determination. It may be recalled that over one million tenants are struggling against Rangers and military (owners of farms) over the control of 68,000 acres of highly cultivable land which tenants have been tilling for the last 100 years.

The meeting was a clear manifestation that tenants are in no mood to disappear in the face of the state oppression. If we look at the social and political impacts of this movement these are significant in nature. The movement has helped generate new dynamics of gender power and political discourse. During the last 10 years, the movement has positively changed the gender relations in favor of women in a feudal dominated society. Women are now more empowered, out of boundary walls of the homes to play their due and important political role. Besides this a new layer of young tenants leadership has also emerged on the political scene and making local ruling elite to feel their strong presence. They are now major political actors in their local constituencies. …“

3.) Die GenossInnen der RSO erinnern daran, dass Joseph Frey (1889-1957) nicht nur eine herausragende Figur der ArbeiterInnenbewegung in Österreich im allgemeinen und des österreichischen Trotzkismus im besonderen sondern auch ein exquisieter Fussballer war:

„Weniger bekannt ist Freys Karriere als Fußballer in Spitzenteams der damaligen Zeit. Frey war bereits als Jugendlicher und junger Mann sport- und insbesondere fußballbegeistert. Nach dem Abschluss seines Studiums 1907 und seiner Übersiedlung nach Wien spielte er als „rechter Mittelläufer“ (so die damalige Bezeichnung) beim WAC. Die Fußballabteilung des „Wiener Athletiksport Club“ (WAC) war bereits 1897 ins Leben gerufen worden. Der WAC war aber nicht nur einer der ältesten Fußballvereine Wiens (und Österreichs), sondern auch einer der besten, der eine Reihe der damals bestehenden Bewerbe gewann.“

4.) Lesenswertes zum Skandal um die Robinsons in Nordirland findet mensch auf Splintered Sunrise, ansonsten ein wenig Musik von Keith Law zum Thema:

5.) Das Veranstaltungsprogramm 2010 der Willi-Bredel-Gesellschaft. Geschichtswerkstatt e.V. ist nun online
