FOLLOW CLOSELY THE SPANISH CATALONIA CRISIS…THIS IS THE FUTURE AS CAPITALISM INTERNATIONALLY PLUNGES INTO CRISIS

LONG LIVE THE CATALAN REVOLUTION!
THE BULLY RAJOY NEVER!

 

The Trotskyist position on the Catalan situation is that we as Trotskyists defend the right of small nations to secede and to declare themselves as independent.

The events of the past week have only made this position stronger.

This is very like the 1916 Rebellion of the Irish patriotic fighters (INCLUDING THE SOCIALIST CONNOLLY) who rose up in Dublin against the British Imperialist torturers of the Irish.

What has Spain and Rajoy done in the past week?

They try to stop voting basing all on the Stalinist created lie of the Constitution of 1978…by Stalinist created we mean the role of the Spanish Stalinists in Santiago Carillo and the old Stalinist murderers of the Civil War. That is how the Constitution of 1978 was created…by the Stalinist murderers,

They have moved a massive police and even military force against little Catelonia. Big business such as the hated banks have pulled out of the tiny country aiming to cripple it before it is even breathing. They have bussed masses in from all over the Peninsula in order to crush the Catalans in a mass demonstration. Fascists have roamed the towns and villages in a return to the days of the Franco Falange. The Media have made up lies against the Catalan leaders. The Media including the PSOE Media have made the Catalan leaders into hate figures. But the Catalans adopt pacifism in return to this hatred. Their answer to this brutality of Rajoy…they raise their ten fingers in the air and answer to Rajoy “Assasins!” To guns and brute force the Catalans are answering with pacifist thoughts and with hopeful ideas in their hearts.

So our Trotskyist movement takes its place with the Catalans who seek independence and we ask all class conscious Spanish workers and the youth in Catelonia AND Spain to join us in support for Catalan independence.

This WAS the position of Marx, Engels, Lenin and especially Trotsky. The latter Trotsky and Lenin supported the Irish in the 1916 Rising. Trotsky in the 1930s supported the Jews in their flight from the Nazi killing machine and supported the idea of a homeland for the Jews, which was to be Israel. That is the tradition we stand on in this movement and as long as there is breath in our bodies we will always stand for the oppressed against the oppressor.

LONG LIVE THE CATALAN REVOLUTION!
THE BULLY RAJOY NEVER!
