    revolution <http://links.org.au/node/3321>

By *Luis Bilbao*, Caracas
April 22, 2013 -- With cold calculation, the counter-revolutionary 
command ordered the murder of nine people and numerous acts of violence 
and destruction since early April 15. The United States is testing out a 
new way to defeat the Bolivarian Revolution: the creation of a classic 
fascist movement.

A week before the election victory of Nicolás Maduro on April 14, 
referring to the attack on artists committed to the revolution, I 
pointed out the differences between McCarthyism and Nazism-fascism in an 
article published in the /Correo del Orinoco/.

    <http://links.org.au/node/3323>

By *Andrew Coates*

    /Trade unions have historically bargained for better terms for the
    sale of labour power; they have not been able to challenge the
    existence of the labour market itself. Today, however, the relation
    between "political" and "economic" struggle have changed." /-- Perry
    Anderson. "The Limits and Possibilities", in /The Incompatibles:
    Trade Union Militancy and the Consensus/,1967.

Introduction *by Ian Angus*
April 23, 2013 -- I was unable to attend the Ecosocialist Conference in 
New York City on April 20, 2013, and it is clear from all reports that I 
missed an important and inspiring event. The meeting was organised by 
the Ecosocialist Contingent, the alliance that participated as a united 
anti-capitalist voice in the demonstration against the Keystone XL 
Pipeline in Washington on February 17.

Links seeks to promote the international exchange of information, 
experience of struggle, theoretical analysis and views of political 
strategy and tactics within the international left. It is a forum for 
open and constructive dialogue between active socialists coming from 
different political traditions. It seeks to bring together those in the 
international left who are opposed to neoliberal economic and social 
policies. It aims to promote the renewal of the socialist movement in 
the wake of the collapse of the bureaucratic model of "actually existing 
socialism" in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.
