Cummings “revelations”: Bourgeois vendettas and the distortion of science

The resignation of Health Secretary Matt Hancock after breaking rules that he had himself formulated, the revelations of connections to board members at the Department of Health, and the use of private mail accounts and WhatsApp communication all show the hypocritical disregard for the code of conduct in the political apparatus in the UK. And the range of attacks instigated by Boris Johnson’s former advisor Dominic Cummings are further signs of the decomposing political life of the bourgeoisie.

Populism accelerates instability and fragmentation

US and UK leaders at odds over Northern Ireland at the G7 summit

One thing that undermined the pretend unity at the recent G7 summit in Cornwall was the UK government's continuation of the war with the EU over sausages, nuggets and other chilled meats crossing the Irish Sea to Northern Ireland. This seemingly trivial row in fact exemplifies the weakening position of the British bourgeoise and indicates the various pressures confronting the very union of the United Kingdom.

Growth as decay

We reply to a reader’s question: “How can the ICC maintain that capitalism is a decadent system since 1914 when there has been such enormous growth in the capitalist system since then?”

On the 65th anniversary of the Paris Commune, Bilan no 29 (March-April 1936)

We are publishing here an article by the Italian Fraction of the Communist Left, celebrating the 65th anniversary of the Paris Commune. The interest of this article, written in the midst of the counter-revolution and the march towards the Second World War, is that it highlights the historical continuity between the Commune of 1871 and the October Revolution of 1917. The article illustrates both the proletarian character of these two revolutionary experiences, their international scope and the tragedy of their defeat.

Against the nationalist poison, international solidarity of all workers!

"Free Palestine" - a bourgeois nationalist slogan

The recent demonstrations "in solidarity with Palestine" have given vent to real indignation about the barbarism being unleashed in Gaza. But they are manipulated in the most shameless way by the bourgeoisie. These are demonstrations which call for a false solidarity on a terrain which is not internationalist and proletarian. On the contrary, this is the terrain of bourgeois nationalism which feeds all imperialist confrontations.

Are “uberised” employees part of the working class?

Uber Eats workers on strike

We are publishing below two letters from ICC sympathisers aimed at continuing the reflection that arose in a meeting in France on 15 May 2020 on the subject of the nature and composition of the working class. During this discussion some participants questioned what affect “uberisation” of work had on the composition of the working class. In other words, do the “uberised” employees belong to the working class? We welcome the comrades’ efforts of reflection and their willingness to express their concerns. The letters from the comrades make two contributions to this debate which will be continued at other ICC meetings.
