Minimal demands

The People’s Assembly has called for the following:
•a mass national protest at the Tory Party conference on 29 September in Manchester;
•a day of civil disobedience on 5 November in every town and city across the country;
•local People’s Assemblies to be established in every area possible;
•a national demonstration in London in the new year

All of these should be supported. But they hardly scare the ruling class to death. The City of London and the European Central Bank and European Commission are far more powerful than the Tories. Civil disobedience has been the name of the game for Cameron, Clegg and Osborne, who between them polled fewer individuals’ votes that several trade union leaders in their own union elections.

People’s Assemblies in every area could be good things, but what will they do, what power will they assume? Or are we condemned to perpetually complain about cuts and opposition to this and that? Another national demonstration in the new year? Let’s have it through the City of London and while we are there let’s relieve the burden of responsibility on the fund managers and spivs and speculators and take control of the massive wealth of our country. And let’s funnel it to real people’s assemblies with power to produce and distribute and circulate the products of our labour and lift not just the standard of living but the imaginations of the working class beyond subservience and protest.

Biden opposed moves to rebuild Afghanistan, advising a policy of fighting terrorism in the country. He also opposed withdrawal of US troops, which Trump carried out.

@theworkerorguk Which international conflicts has biden spoken more violently than trump on? Evidence please.

Biden's regime will hold on to enclaves in the North East and work alongside Turkish invaders, continuing sanctions against the Syrian government. In general, Biden wants US global leadership, which he sees as being diminished by Trump's inconsistencies.

Biden intends to have tighter sanctions on DPRK, and to have stricter preconditions with respect to engaging on talks. The Democrat's president also intends to strengthen an alliance against North Korea. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-biden-northkorea-analysi/biden-on-north-korea-fewer-summits-tighter-sanctions-same-standoff-idUSKBN25G2QO

The USA is run by an oligarchy of the mega-rich, who will maintain their power, through political, economic, propagandist legal and military means. They do so at home and around the world.
