Our society is increasingly militarized. We are constantly witnesses of the steeping militarization of international relationships. The attacks in France, undoubtedly fierce and cruel, have been used as an excuse to declare the state of emergency. The French army is currently intervening in its own territory.
The working class needs to oppose this militarist and patriot hurricane with internationalism. Workers in every country are our class brothers. Internationalism is not an amalgam of reactionary nationalisms, internationalism means to overcome every nationalism- no matter if it is Spanish, Catalan, French, British, Russian, Syrian, etc.- and it represents the only oxygen that the working class can count upon.
THE TRUE CAUSES OF WAR
Each and every state intervening in Syria and the Middle East is imperialistic and capitalistic(from the EU to Russia as well as USA, Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Israel; from the al-Assad regime to the “opposing” groups, including the Islamic State, they all are groups fighting over the control of the resources as well as the drug and fuel business; therefore disputing to conquer the fruit of exploitation of the working class worldwide). The real reasons behind the recent attacks and also the military intervention of several countries are mercantilist. These attacks are after the settlement of the imperialist positions, their perpetrators do not have shaky hands when it comes to massacring workers anywhere, they will not doubt when they will need to lead us to slaughter, either.
HOW COULD WE EVER BE PROTECTED FROM A SITUATION BY ITS MAIN RESPONSIBLES?
“Security” is a mere excuse used to repress any kind of protest, to impose even further sacrifices in the name of the wellness of the Company and their Homeland. “Security” used to arm us tomorrow and tell us to go and kill workers in other countries.
The armies that (from 1967) intervene militarily in diverse countries in the Middle East, the ones that today are bombing villages and towns, that destroy hospitals and schools, the ones that fund the same terrorist groups which will later become their excuse to militarize these areas; those armies will never provide security for us. More the opposite, they generate all this mesmerizing amount of crimes and killings.
SHOULD WE CONSIDER IT OUR PROBLEM, WHEN THE AGENDA OF THE BOURGEOISIE IS CONTROLLING NATURAL RESOURCES IN THE MIDDLE EAST?
The exploitation that is imposed on us by the bourgeoisie (no matter from where, Spain, Catalonia, the Basque Country, France, UK, Germany…) is our problem. Every day, workers all over the world, including us, suffer this imposition. Our problem is that there are 6,000,000 unemployed people and over 5.7 million fellow workers get salaries below the minimum wage (even if this data are from Spain, the problem is the same in all countries), that we are forced to work too much, even when sick. We cannot let them lead us to slaughter so they can ensure their return.
SPANISH ARMY AND EVERY ARMY: STAY OUT FROM THE MIDDLE EAST, AFRICA, AMERICA AND ASIA!
FOR CLASS STRUGGLE AGAINST THE IMPERIALIST WAR!
