Cape Town: Since two months the workers from „MyCiTI“, an outsourced company by the city of Cape Town, are on strike. Still more than 200 workers are striking and other workers show their solidarity. Their demands are higher wages, better working conditions and not being employed by „outsourced companies“, but again by the city. They also demand to speak with the new mayor Don Plato. The company and union representatives call the strike „illegal“, so they provoked violence against the workers and want to brake the solidarity.

Yankee imperialism has been launching a series of unprecedented bombardments against Somalia for two years, under the rhetoric of "combating terrorism". Last year there were more than 31 attacks, according to what was estimated by the United States Command for Africa (Africom) in October of this year. By November 22, the British imperialism’s media The Guardian and other media announced the mark of 33 attacks.

According to The Guardian itself, the attacks represent a grave danger to the civilian population and have failed the goal of destroying the Islamic armed groups that wage armed struggle against the invading foreign forces - coordinated by Yankee imperialism, through the "African Union”.
Of the total number of attacks in 2018, 29 were directed against Al Shabaab ("Combatant Youth Movement"), an organization that, despite its reactionary ideology, has been the main force of the National Resistance.

Activists in Tunisia made a manifestation for the liberation of Georges Ibrahim Abdallah in front of the France embassy in Tunis. They supported the international week from 17th until 24th of October. Georges Ibrahim Abdallah is one of the longest in-jailed political prisoner in the world. He dedicated his life to the justified struggle for the liberation of Palestine. The French imperialist state still holds him in-jailed and within shows it‘s weakness to the anti-imperialist and Palestinian movement.

Two major waves of protest erupted in January in South Africa. In both, expressing the hatred against imperialism that enforces near-slave labour conditions and imperialist chauvinism, foreign capital was targeted. Even thought the reaction in both cases went in hard against the protesters, many could not be deterred. A tremendous expression of courage and bravery are the struggles that took place around Platinum mines of Royal Bafokeng Platinum (RBPlat).

On the 14th of January the mass protests that swept over Tunisia in 2011 will have their 7th anniversary. Bourgeois media back then coined the phrase "Arab spring" and exclaimed Tunisia would hence be a "democracy". However, nothing much has since changed its semi-feudal, semi-colonial character and the fact that bureaucratic capitalism still continues to thrive. The people are not better off and are fed up with the illusions spread by the governmental figureheads – this much became very clear in the mass protests and riots that erupted all over the country this week.

In a four day long protest starting the 22th of December, more then ten thousand people in the city of Jerada demanded justice and compensation for two miners killed in a mine collapse. After forcing these workers into illegality, the Moroccan Government attempted to bury the bodies quietly and to avoid taking their responsibility in the two young mans deaths.

Under the guise of the so-called “War on Terror” imperialists, and most notably Yankee imperialism since 2002, frequently carry out military operations in Yemen, describing the country as a stronghold for groups and organisations opposed to their interests. Resulting from the imperialists intervention, Yemen is today considered to be the poorest country on the Arabian Peninsula, with tremendous shortages of basic supplies such as drinking water. Despite the war crimes committed by the imperialists and their lackeys however, there is still a continuing struggle against the assaults and invasions. A number of attacks targeting foreign military personal and equipment were conducted last month.

Since years Mali is grievously effected by the ongoing imperialist's struggle to repartition the world and for a bigger share of pie. The country is exemplary for the consequences of such a prolonged imperialist aggression: On one hand there are vast deposits of important resources like petroleum, uranium and gold in Mali. On the other hand the country is kept extremely poor; its northern part is considered one of the poorest in western Africa. Hence, there’s every right to rebel for the people.
