December 13, 2014

On the eve of the International Human Rights Day last December 9, the US Senate Intelligence Committee, chaired by Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California), released the  525-page summary of the 6,700-page report on the program of  “enhanced interrogation techniques”  (torture) used by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the name of counterterrorism in the years of the Bush II regime, following 9/11.  The full report is based on 6.3 million pages of official documents.

TODO EL APOYO A LA LUCHA DE LOS
ESTUDIANTES Y EL PUEBLO DE MEXICO


Por José María Sisón
Presidente, Liga Internacional de la Lucha de los Pueblos
29 de noviembre, 2014

A todas las organizaciones afiliadas a la Liga Internacional de la Lucha de los Pueblos Y a la clase trabajadora y pueblos del mundo:

Nosotros en la Liga Internacional de la Lucha de los Pueblos (ILPS), hemos seguido con gran atención e indignación la agresión a la que el pueblo de México ha sido víctima. Hemos observado que desde la llegada de  Enrique Peña Nieto como Presidente de México, la ofensiva en contra del pueblo ha sido devastador; se impusieron reformas estructurales, las cuales han aumentado la dependencia económica de México al imperialismo de los EEUU; el Plan Mérida se ha reforzado con el propósito de fortalecer el control militar yanqui en la región, y recientemente se aprobó la participación del Ejército Mexicano en las mal llamadas Fuerza de Paz (Cascos Azules), lo cual desenmascara el hecho de que el gobierno mexicano es un títere de Barack Obama.

OF THE STUDENTS AND THE PEOPLE OF MEXICO


By Prof. Jose Maria Sison
Chairperson, International League of Peoples’ Struggle
November 29, 2014

To all the member-organizations and allies of  the International League of Peoples’  Struggle

And to the working class and peoples of the world:

We in the International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS), have followed with great attention and indignation the aggression which the workers and people of Mexico have been victims of.   We have observed that since Enrique Peña Nieto became President of Mexico, the offensive against the people has been devastating; structural reforms have been imposed,  increasing Mexico’s economic dependence on US imperialism; Plan Merida has been reinforced in order to strengthen the Yankee military control in the region, and recently the participation of the Mexican Army in the badly named Peace Force (Blue Helmets) has been approved, which exposes that the Mexican government is a puppet of Barack Obama.

1. We, the International League of Peoples’ Struggle, support the Hong Kong people in upholding and exercising their democratic rights.  We condemn the police brutality applied by the Hong Kong authorities to suppress the people’s right to assemble and speak freely.  We are aware that both the Beijing and Hong Kong authorities are anxious to end  the mass protests for fear that these are likely to embolden similar mass protests in mainland China, especially because of the Tienanmen massacre in 1989 and the current deteriorating economic and social conditions.

UN CLIMATE SUMMIT 20I4 WILL LET GLOBAL WARMING WORSEN,
THE PEOPLE MUST FIGHT THE ROOT CAUSE: IMPERIALISM

September 17, 2014

The current unprecedented rise in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere brought about by the wanton pillage of the environment by monopoly capitalism has created an untenable situation for the world’s peoples.

Record levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere have been measured by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 2013. At the same time,  the highest rate of increase of greenhouse gases has been recorded in the past thirty years. The continuing increase in greenhouse gas production has caused drastic changes in our planet’s climate systems that are now bearing heavily on poor and vulnerable communities in the world.
