Defeats For Latin American Fascist Right

The end of 2013 saw key defeats for the Latin American fascist right in both Venezuela and Chile.

The victory of the Chavistas in the Venezuelan municipal elections, should not in itself have been very significant, since the governing socialists had won the presidential, parliamentary and regional elections with large majorities already. It became important because the extreme right, with US support, had made the municipal elections a key part of their campaign of subversion with economic sabotage as its main tactic. Their business supporters hoarded food and goods, creating artificial shortages, which they then blamed on government inefficiency. In the process, they made large profits, by selling these products at the Colombian border as prices there are much higher.

However, determined action by the Venezuelan government and security forces defeated this attempt and proved highly popular among the public, resulting in the defeat of the extreme right in the elections and in their attempt to organise protests against the new anti-sabotage measures.

The government also discovered the organized links between the Venezuelan far right and other Latin American fascists. These include Chilean Pinochet activists, Colombian extreme rightists linked to paramilitaries, the Medellin narco-traffickers and most notably ex- Colombian president Uribe. Uribe has been actively campaigning in the US and Europe against the Colombian peace talks between the current government and FARC which have been taking place in Havana.

In Chile the social democrat Bachelet defeated the Pinochet supporter, winning 62% of the vote on a radical platform which includes the introduction of free education at all levels, tax reform, labour reform and constitutional reform to change the Pinochet authoritarian pro-elite constitution. At the moment Chile is the most unequal society in Latin America.

Faced with an increasingly active and politically conscious civil society, the extreme right is putting its efforts into violence in the hope of creating the conditions needed to justify US military intervention. Their efforts must be exposed and defeated.

There have been SNP led governments in Scotland since 2007 & substantial increase in pro-separatist opinions since 2016, but there has been a drop in support for separatists, since the start of this year.

The EU's vaccine export ban is potentially a genocidal policy, an act of an enemy. There are still remainers who would have us back in. The SNP & Alba after breaking up Britain would seek membership of the gangster EU.
Better together! Oppose the EU!

The EU wants to impose a vaccine export ban without saying it’s a ‘vaccine export ban’.
As usual, they play with language to deny their most unpleasant motives.

There have been numerous calls for Sturgeon to resign, on the grounds she has misled parliament. The workers of Scotland now should give the SNP it's marching orders, for attempting to create division in the British working class.

The defence & foreign policy review is to cut military personel; though total speding will increase with a focus on the technology of war: nuclear weapons expansion, development of bio-tech, cyber warfare, & artificial intelligence.
