Revolt in Arabic countries (Region) - Capitalism is nothing but barbarism for Humanity

A wave of protests has spread around the Arabic countries. The political earthquake that began in Tunis has shaken the stable island of the Arab world. Self-immolation of a young unemployed university graduated in the protest of apprehends of his vegetables selling carts became the spark of protests. The latent anger drew tab and raised sympathy and solidarity of thousands of his fate and became a raging river. Unbridled suppress of the protests by the police state could not suppress the protests and would forward it and spread to the other cities and eventually would head to other countries as well. From Morocco to Oman, from Algeria to Syria, from Libya to Egypt under the feet of the protesters were shuddered and currently the heart of the Arab world, Egypt has become the centre of that.

The revolt of wage slaves, hungry, oppressed victims, those downtrodden of community in Arabic countries and seeing their heroic, their street battles, have been rejoiced the enthusiasm of their class brothers and sisters around the world. Mass protest to this mess and upside down world and wishing another world is indeed a very glorious and inspiring other wage slaves and hungry around the world would like to do.

These protests are the consequences of the crisis of capitalism. The fact is that capitalism is in one of its deepest crises of the history and the working class is paying the price of this crisis. The standard living of the working class around the world, from Greece to England, from Iran to Tunisia, from Egypt to the United States of America daily has been attacked by bourgeoisie. However, the important issue is that the consequences of the crisis play a major destructive role in the surrounding countries of capitalism than in the metropolis countries of capitalism.

Before addressing the areas forming the protests, quick looking at the inflation and unemployment in these countries, describes the hellish conditions of the working class and other social groups that live in these countries. Note that these are official statistics the real statistics cab two times of this.

"Arab countries have highest unemployment rate in the world" is the title of a report that the ANSA news agency reported from Dubai, 26 January 2011. According to same agency:

“The Middle East is the region with the highest rate of unemployment in the world, confirmed the International Labour Organisation (ILO), which reports that unemployment in the region is 10.3% compared to 6.2% on average globally. The situation presented in "Global Employment Trends 2011" is even more dramatic when looking at the young segment of the population up to the age of 25, where the unemployment rate is estimated to be 40%. The data published by the UN agency raised a further alarm for a region that has already been observing popular insurrection and protests with cries for "more bread, more work" in recent weeks.”

The above statistics says more than other facts. These protests are neither organized by dark religious current nor the left of capital or not even by the Democratic wing of capital, but it was quite spontaneous and organized by the masses and progress. Being spontaneous of protests, obliged the Akhavan al Muslimin to admit that: “The Akhavan al Muslimin regards the revolution as the Egyptian People’s Revolution not an Islamic Revolution asserting that the Egyptian People’s Revolution includes Muslims, Christians, from all types and political background.” The main reasons for these protests are double-digit inflation, severe unemployment, extreme poverty, workers empty table, hunger, homelessness, homeless, life stress, daily oppression, brutal exploitation and in a word, people who have nothing to lose. Shouting bread, house, freedom ... of the demonstrators, dominated their slogans and was not the occasion when in the one of protests the "bread" as a symbol of protest had been flagged. This also expression that a huge mass of workers who have been protests in the streets, been ordinary people, not social class.

The protests of a young generation that has not even been given any opportunity to get into the capitalist wage system, shows that young generation know that they don’t have any future in this up and down turn world of capitalism. At the same time, participating of students in the protest shows that students see themselves as the future potential proletarian and rebelled against their future.

In this regard, the media brought Mohamed El Baradei to the middle of the stage, and even went so far as to claim, El Baradei will lead the protests. His diplomatic career began in 1964 in the Ministry of External Affairs and from 1974 to 1978, he was a special assistant to the Foreign Minister and etc and he is a Cade of this dirty system.

On the other side, the Western countries know well that Egypt is not Tunisia and are aware the strategic role of the Egypt. Millions of barrels of oil, transports from the Suez Canal to other places daily. Only a few days of closing this Canal by proletariat can lead to a crisis of energy in the metropolis countries of the capitalism. Any simple changes in Egypt will effect the region. They know that preserving of Hosni Mubarak is not advisability and therefore need to be replaced with another element. In this context, the Democrats want to replace Omar Suleiman, Vice President and Head of the Information Ministry, quietly, instead of Mubarak and with a little formal change to push to end the protests. All of the reactionary forces, from right to left, from Democrats to the religious powers trying to stop the protests will be developed in a canal of class struggle. The ghost of class struggle the bourgeoisie is fear more than anything.

The left of capital in Arabic countries plays its role as well as in other countries, to vacate the potential of the working class and the mass demonstrations protesting to the democratic channels. Although these counter-revolutionary forces were marginalized and did not involved sensible in protests, but at the height of street protests of the masses of indigent, hearing the shrunk diffusions of these reactionary, describes and reflects only their efforts in order to maintain the wage slavery system. First we look at the part of political statement, of the "workers" "communists" party of Tunisia:

“It is extremely urgent that the democratic forces form a national and unified body to carry out the democratic change and has the tasks to protect the gains of the revolting Tunisian people and to negotiate with the authorities to yield power to the people in a peaceful way.” [1]

The same boolshit champing its brother party in Egypt. Party "Communist" party of Egypt in its statement writes:

“To call for the formation of an elected constituent assembly to draft a new constitution for the country, based on the principle of the sovereignty of the nation and ensuring the devolution of power within the framework of a just democratic civil state.” [2]

The perspective activities of the National-leftist currents and their functions are in the line of a very good policy for the West put pressure to the Arab regimes that are corrupt. In the absence of the Internationalist positions in the political milieu of these countries, such currents, to divert people's struggles and provide the interests of the bourgeoisie as well as. It represents the other tasks that are facing internationalists.

Duty of Internationalists are active involvement in class struggle through the analysis of situations and providing clear political direction to the proletariat, to help advancing of internationalist positions in these countries and formation of the internationalist avant-garde, in order to make Internationalist Communist Party, as a necessary weapon for the victory of the Communist Revolution.

Capitalism is the origin of all misery and adversity in the world. Our interest is not only to change the ruling class without in class struggle. Proletariat must take initiative and give its imprint to the events. Proletariat should take with itself the students, young people, and the other layers of the society, and not vice versa. If the protests don’t take an independent class path and the working class don’t create its neighborhood, factory, strike and struggle committee and other independent institutions from all bourgeoisies and if don’t transfer the struggle from the streets to workplaces in all sectors, despite the great done zeal, finally weaken the proletariat and undermine the working class Will be worn.

Bourgeois democracy is the other side of the same coin, dictatorship of the bourgeois, so our slogan must be against wage slavery, exploitation, unemployment and inflation and our aim must be directed to destroying whole capitalist system. This is only possible from an internationalist perspective. Our class is the only class that can be end to the barbarism and brutality of capitalism. We don’t have anything to lose but our chains and a world to win!
