The Progressive Chimera of Opportunists and Revisionists and the National Liberation War of the Ukrainian People and Nation

From the platforms of the opportunists and revisionists, the defense of lackey governments or even second-rate imperialist powers has been propagated for a long time, as if this were an effort in the anti-imperialist struggle.

We document pictures send to us of leafleats for the antiimperialist week of action of the CPI(m) being destributed in Berlin Hohenschönhausen.

It was predictable and now, at the latest, after the war in Ukraine has been raging for a good four weeks and thousands of refugees have reached the FRG, the debate has begun on how best to use them. Imperialist chauvinism is unleashed freely and unbridled these days. Various business associations are calling for the rapid "integration" of refugees into the German labour market. Meanwhile, the Federal Minister of Labour, Hubertus Heil (SPD), has also announced that he wants to get the Ukrainian refugees into the labour market quickly. There is a labour shortage in many sectors, he said on 18 March.

Actions also took place in Austria as a result of the war unleashed by the Russian imperialists against Ukraine. Progressive forces condemned the war and also the proletarian revolutionaries from Austria unfolded actions against the imperialist war. We want to give some impressions of the actions in Austria and share some pictures.

The NATO summit of member states' defence ministers held on Wednesday the 16th of March again decided not to send soldiers to Ukraine. Poland had advanced a proposal to station an armed NATO peacekeeping mission in Ukraine. This proposal was rejected by the other defence ministers because the danger of an escalation of the situation was too great.

Kampkomiteen and other revolutionaries have marked the 8th of March together in Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim and Kristiansand. Activists from multiple cities as well as comrades from abroad contributed to raising the red flag on the 8th of March against imperialism and patriarchy.

Fighting continues in Corsica. At least 67 people were injured in the city of Bastia on Sunday, including 44 security forces. Authorities speak of "extreme violence". Police used tear gas and water cannons. France's Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin announced new rounds of talks on more autonomy for the island in the wake of the clashes.
