Pcm Italy - Translation of Introduction and conclusions of our report about world demonstrations for Palestine

"Le grandi mobilitazioni nel mondo a sostegno della resistenza del popolo palestinese - In Italia intervento e commento dalla manifestazione a Milano - Da Controinformazione rossoperaia del 16/10".

Big demonstrations in the world to support Palestinian people's Resistance - In Italy action and comment from Milan demonstration - From 16th of October redworker information against".

The State of Israel, its policy which many - and we with them - rightly call Nazi-Zionist, that is, a policy which bases the occupation of the land of Palestine on a racist ideology and on ethnic cleansing, on genocide, in these days , in these hours, is bombing Gaza non-stop, since last Saturday some sources report that 2,300 Palestinians have been killed, of which a third, 724 are children, with a military policy of mass extermination of the Palestinian people that has lasted for 75 years.

The support that the Israeli occupying state receives only from all imperialist governments and states and consists not only in military aid, but also in the repression of internationalist solidarity with the Palestinian people and the disinformation that these governments and states, their press carry forward.

Despite all this police and media apparatus, the streets of the world in recent days have been invaded by the masses who have lined up for the right to national and social self-determination of the Palestinian people against Israeli state terrorism, with the great participation in the front row of the youth which is the element that must be highlighted, an extraordinary participation which clearly did not find space in the press of the bourgeoisie, of the bosses, a participation which has nothing comparable to the miserable - and miserable - support of a few people who demonstrated their support for the Israeli terrorist/Nazi occupier but which were echoed in the imperialist media.

Thousands of people took to the streets in support of Palestine in Algeria and Morocco, in the Moroccan capital Rabat there was a demonstration on Sunday to demonstrate against the Israeli massacres in Gaza and to ask the government to cut ties with Israel.

Morocco has been one of the few Arab governments pushing for ties with Israel in recent years, but the Moroccan people continue to reject that decision through their constant solidarity marches in support of the Palestinians. The march in Rabat was called by the "Moroccan Front for Support of Palestine and Against Normalization" and the "National Action Group for Palestine".

Now the cause of the Palestinian people will be brought forward with motions, with slogans, among the workers in the general strike of the grassroots unions on October 20th and in the demonstrations that will be held against the war in some realities, in front of some bases, such as Gedi , Pisa, Palermo, Taranto.

We report the intervention at the Milan demonstration of the communist proletarian comrade and an opinion on the demonstration:

"Today is a great demonstration and a great day that must continue because they must take back all the lies they are telling against the Palestinian people.

We are unconditionally on the side of the oppressed, on the side of Palestinian rights, on the side of their armed resistance, of their liberation.

We are not the ones who have to decide. The Palestinian people have decided to raise their heads and move forward until victory. And we just have to do our part and support him. It is a great battle, we must also do it here in Italy against a government and against many parties that have sided with the oppressors, with Israel, against many newspapers that have spewed lies against the Palestinian people. We must not leave them alone.

We are for peace in Palestine but there is no peace without justice and in Palestine today there is no justice, there is only the oppression of the Zionists, of the Nazi State of Israel which was put there by the imperialist countries to crush the peoples and primarily the Arab peoples, but all the peoples, because the struggle of Palestine is a struggle for the liberation of all the peoples from Nazi-Zionism and imperialism. Forward until victory!"

"No justice, no peace, until Palestine is free." This is the gist of yesterday's demonstration which brought thousands of young people, families, proletarians, students, in solidarity to the streets, all linked by a single objective alongside the Palestinian resistance against the genocide of the Nazi State of Israel.

The communist proletarian comrades who participated in this demonstration found themselves in a climate of struggle, of determination with respect to those, the so-called "beautiful souls", also of the movement, who they thought they would flatten into positions that were always whining towards the Palestinian people who have instead decided to raise their heads and are fighting in all possible ways.

A river in flood that wanted to denounce all the mystifications, the lies spouted by the media and by the various parties that have sided with Israel, including in the front row the Meloni government which has sided with the bloodthirsty Netanyahu who throughout the march was rightly defined as a "murderer", just as the Nazi State of Israel was defined as a fascist state.

The just liberation of a people is not terrorism, everyone said throughout the demonstration which shouted out the anger and the need to continue the mobilization even more in these hours in which, together with the massacre of the Palestinian people, a deportation and a situation in which, despite all the UN resolutions and international issues, they want to carry out a real genocide of the people.

Support for the struggle of the Palestinian people is support for all the oppressed of the world, it is support for the battle that we wage every day in close connection against the oppressors, against their system of masters, governments and the imperialist system that wants to relegate to repression, war and exploitation. This is why the battle that we are carrying out in these mobilizations is also that of a growth of consciousness, of class consciousness, of all being part of the same class of the oppressed, against the oppressors, to have a true peace, because without any justice there is no peace.

This is why in recent days we have also brought this position to the workplace, to the factories, because there is a close link between the daily condition of exploitation and oppression and what is happening in Palestine, and in many situations in the world where many, many peoples, from India to Palestine, have decided to raise their heads again.

Our task is to stand at their side, it is to wage the battle against our imperialism which uses the media as a daily war, full of lies, against which we must loudly denounce these days with initiatives right under the newspapers, identifying the journalists by name and surname who are carrying out this dirty campaign against the Palestinian people. Just as we must rally together and denounce the repression that is also being implemented in Italy with respect to support for those who are in solidarity with the Palestinian resistance, in particular among young people and students, because the system is afraid of this, this is a spark that can really set a prairie on fire.

Participating in that event in Milan had meaning grasp many aspects of the fear that the bourgeoisie has, so our task is to move forward and wage a battle also to define ourselves, to clarify the positions that are not in the field of support for the Palestinian people, such as those that they were also in Milan on Friday, behind the "Now Peace" street mobilization which gathered very few people and representatives of various political forces, including the Democratic Party, Rifondazione Comunista, CGIL and also other associations, Emergency, Anpi. These "Peace Now" positions do not support the Palestinian people but, on the contrary, objectively support the action of the imperialist countries.

These positions - condemnation of Hamas' terrorism, immediate freedom for the hostages, now peace - have truly outraged the Palestinians, who will certainly take them into account from now on, to understand who is truly on their side and for the Palestinian cause and who instead he takes sides in an equidistant manner and therefore does not clearly take a position on which side he is on.

The 20th of October strike in Palermo

During the morning shifts at the Cantieri Navali in Palermo on the day of the general strike called by the rank and file unions. The strike platform flyer and the workers' counter-information newspaper on the strike and Palestine were distributed.

The workers were informed of today's strike by the Ex Ilva workers of Taranto and of the demonstration in Rome, several expressed solidarity with the workers of Taranto but criticizing Fiom and in particular Landini which "does not start the war" (against the bosses) as one worker said. He put up posters around the factory about the strike and the demonstration of 21 October against the imperialist war in Palermo in unity with the demonstrations in Ghedi, Pisa and Taranto.

Starting from 11.00 in the center of the city, in Piazza Pretoria at the Municipality, the precarious workers of Coop Sociali, school and service workers went on strike in unity and connection with the workers, workers, temporary workers, unemployed, migrants on strike today October 20th and fighting.

Also in the square at the demonstration promoted by Slai Cobas sc were comrades/delegates from the Cub, comrades from the Pcl and young comrades from the FGC.

In solidarity with the former Ilva workers today on strike and demonstrating in Rome who blocked the motorway in protest upon arrival in Rome, news of which arrived live from Slai workers

Cobas sc.

If our life really has to change, our struggle as women workers, precarious workers... it must be 360 degrees against the government, bosses, this capitalist system, the precarious workers and workers who are always on the front line in the struggle said loud and clear in the streets.

Alongside the Palestinian people, against the criminal siege of Gaza by the Nazi and terrorist state of Israel, fully supported by the US/European imperialist states including Italy with the government headed by the fascist Meloni. In unity with the appeal of the Palestinian unions on strike today.

Many passers-by, migrants and tourists sympathized with the precarious workers and workers on strike and took many photos and shared the appeal in solidarity with the Palestinian people. During the demonstration, the appeal of the Palestinian trade unions was read in full and applauded at the end and supported by slogans. Free Palestine! WITHOUT JUSTICE NO PEACE!

A stage of struggle, it was said in the square, this strike which must bring a real message to the workers, male and female workers, precarious workers, the unemployed... proletarians on the need to connect and unite to fight on a class basis towards the construction of a true general strike that blocks the production of this system of exploiting masters and against the government steeped in fascists in power today, starting from the factories and extending to all workplaces, also looking at the encouraging examples of the great workers' struggles in France against the pension reform and Stellantis workers in the USA on prolonged strike, which was reported during the magaphonics

Slai Cobas per il Sindacato di Classe Palermo

- Translation: "Contro la guerra imperialista a Palermo il 21 ottobre nel cuore dei quartieri proletari e popolari, contro i padroni assassini al servizio della guerra/Leonardo"

21th of October in Palermo against iperialist war, in the hearth of proletairan and popular neighbourhoods, against assassin masters of Leonardo at the service of the war

*Leonardo is the main army factory in Italy that supplies israel army too.

Hundreds of demonstrators yesterday, 21 October, the national day of mobilization against the imperialist war, the military bases, the war profiteering factories, at the procession promoted by the No Muos movement in unity and connection with the other demonstrations in Ghedi, Pisa, Taranto, who crossed the streets of the proletarian and popular Oreto-Guadagna neighborhoods of Palermo to protest in this case also against the presence, in the Guadagna neighborhood, of the Leonardo death factory, a high-tech factory for war and space systems/devices in the hands of the Italian State!

At the concentration we distributed the flyer and several copies of the red workers' counter-information, base unions such as the USB, the Cobas Confederation, the Cub and the Slai Cobas per il Sindacato di Classe were present with a delegation of workers who already on the previous day of the 20th had brought about the strike a strong message against the imperialist war, so different political and social realities, the young people of the FGC...

Some pacifists contested the slogan of our banner saying that it would be absurd to respond to the imperialist war with the war of the people, we only said "the Palestinians, the Kurds, the oppressed peoples like in India who should then suffer and wait happily that the "confrontation/dialogue" between the imperialist states that are the proponents of war in the service of Capital free them?".

Here some slogans:

The people in revolt write history! No Muos until victory!

The proletariat has no nation! Internationalism! Revolution!

Meloni government, government of war and of the masters!

The imperialist war can only be stopped if the people's war advances!

Strong and constant solidarity from the beginning to the end of the march to the Palestinian people who resist and fight against the Nazi state of Israel!

Then the procession started and positively involved a good part of the inhabitants of the neighborhood who were quite intrigued and surprised by this presence which was also very colored by the flags of the various basic political and trade union organizations with a large flag in the center in solidarity with Palestine currently below the murderous bombs of the Nazi state of Israel.

While the leaflet was being distributed, we spoke with various proletarians who agreed on the gravity of the war and who, seeing for example our sign against the Meloni government, denounced that Meloni, who has villas costing millions of euros, only makes words, spends the money for the war and gives nothing to the populations of popular neighborhoods like Guadagna where "everything is missing and where no one ever comes", said one woman, "they only know how to come when they want the vote..."

A great willingness of the people along the sidewalks to talk to the demonstrators which in fact contrasted with some large shopping centers which had closed the gates manned by security guards.

Various anti-war, anti-bomb and appeal-to-fight slogans were projected onto the buildings along the streets.

The procession then, between several stops, arrived at the Leonardo factory which is located in the heart of Guadagna, militarized with a more than massive police presence inside and with helicopters simultaneously controlling the procession from above throughout the entire route. A denunciation action in front of the gates of the factory whose entrance was stained red as a symbol of the blood of all the victims massacred by the weapons of the murderous masters while a writing with the word ASSASSINS was projected onto the Leonardo sign.

The Slai Cobas SC workers, passing in front of the factory, shouted "what freedom, what democracy, this is a police state" Then the procession resumed its route, crossing the neighborhood in reverse, with many people on the balconies of the buildings taking photos and videos to arrive again at the concentration site where there were some final speeches including that of the proletari comunisti-Partito Comunista maoista comrade.

A step forward in the fight against the imperialist war which must be strengthened and extended, but understanding must certainly advance on the need to fight against the imperialism of our homeland, today represented by the Meloni government, on which the denunciation in this march it wasn't enough.

Thus it is also necessary to clarify that if building unity of action and struggle against the worsening of the imperialist war in the world is urgent and cannot be postponed, this however does not mean uniting generically and uncritically with everyone and the opposite of everything: the tolerated presence in this procession of some red-brown characters with boorish sovereignist positions and supporters of Russian imperialism, which only the fellow proletari comunisti have strongly contested, that is not acceptable.

- Translation of "Migliaia in corteo alla manifestazione alla base militare di Ghedi - Report a cura di proletari comunisti"

See the link for pictures:

Thousands in the demonstration against Ghedi military base - Report from Proletari Comunisti".

The day of struggle against the war on Saturday 21 October saw a good participation from a numerical point of view in the demonstration at the Ghedi base, in particular of the workers organized by Sicobas, some delegations of base unions Sgb and Usb and Slai Cobas for the class union, a sign of a battle that can and must advance within the workplaces and factories, but also in the coherent realities of the anti-war movement which were present in a limited way with some pacifist realities in the area leading the march and with a part of more visible anti-militarist anarchists.

We brought and represented in the demonstration the proletarian and communist class, anti-imperialist and internationalist positions, embodying the unitary slogan of convocation Let's unite our forces against their wars, against Meloni's government of the masters... Solidarity was strong and heartfelt throughout the demonstration to Palestine and the resistance of the masses and which was marked from beginning to end, (even if on this, in particular in the TIR/si cobas segment, the voice against the fascist and Nazi-Zionist state of Israel and the complicit Italian imperialist government....)

The delegation of Proletari Comunisti and a representation of logistics warehouse workers tried to do their part in every phase of the demonstration to represent the link between the fight against the imperialist war and the support for the popular and liberation wars, from Palestine to India, passing through the central issue for both aspects which is the fight against our imperialism, the role of our imperialist state, today represented by the modern fascist Meloni government….

From the beginning of the concentration, the signs and posters, focused on the imperialist war that can only be stopped if the people's war advances and on the support of the Palestinian resistance to stop the terrorist genocide of Israel, posted and distributed around 300 copies, attracted the proletarians and workers even with short spikes, including the presence of very young boys and girls who contributed with slogans throughout the procession to incessant support for Palestine until victory to try to unite the entire procession around this slogan.

There was no shortage of interventions with the megaphone at various times, particularly in the streets of the town of Ghedi, focusing on the national day of struggle on 21 October against the war and the bases that united on this day from Ghedi to Coltano, from Palermo to Taranto, and the link with the Palestinian struggle which also indicates the need to raise the level of class warfare in Italy too.

Without justice, no peace against the conditions of exploitation and the attack on the living and working conditions of the proletarians requires a new resistance of the oppressed against the oppressors.

Our very concise final speech (which was somewhat opposed until the end by some of the organizers) summarizes what was said above and the meaning that we wanted to bring to this day and demonstration: to strengthen the conscience of proletarians and workers in struggle of the need to raise the level of conflict to effectively oppose the war of the oppressed to the war of the oppressors.
