In Tampere proletarian revolutionaries commemorated the 104th anniversary of the Finnish revolution that began the 27. of January 1918, according to Punalippu.

At the event a speech was held on the carrying on the struggle against the state apparatus of the bourgeois dictatorship in Finland and the International was sung. In addition posters and a wall painting was also found in the streets of Tampere for the occasion.
Comrades from Punalippu also writes that the Finnish Industrial Union Confederation has declared a blockade against the UPM paper mills who, in cooperation with the Finnish state, has tried to force workers to stop their strike, despite UPM not fulfilling the negotiation agreements. The comrades from Punalippu writes: “All this tells us that in Finland, which is considered so peaceful, there is turmoil and the masses are not just going to accept the attack carried out by the bourgeoisie, which is concretely trying to reduce the quality of life of the working class. ... Some childish fools may despise these struggles, but the struggle for daily demands is what, if properly managed, will take the Finnish proletariat to fulfill its historical mission - the socialist revolution in the People's War to serve the world revolution.”


Comrades from Tjen Folket Media report that former Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, has been appointed chief of the Norwegian Central Bank. Stoltenberg is a well integrated part of the bourgeoisie, and has close ties to his fellow Workers Party colleague Jonas Gahr Stoere, who is the current prime minister. The comrades writes that this is interesting, not because of the appointment itself, but due to the reaction from other sections of the bourgeoisie. One thing to note is that the chief of the central bank also manages the Norwegian Oil Fund, which is the largest stockholder in the world. The comrades from Tjen Folket Media writes: “The opposition politicians undermine the entire system with their criticism of Stoltenberg.

They reveal for the whole people that politics are characterized by games and conflicts of interest. They create the impression that the central bank is not independent, even if it should be - on paper! In short: the politicians can't stop sawing on the branch they are sitting on. This is an important characteristic of the crises in the system. The rulers themselves contribute to the crisis, and they cannot stop. They are forced by the circumstances to dig their own grave and pour gasoline on the fire.”
