German Socialist Equality Party answers legal document from Verfassungsschutz Secret Service

Germany’s Verfassungsschutz Secret Service was abusing its “constitutional role in a legally impermissible manner” when it “stigmatises criticism of the capitalist system and the advocacy of its overcoming as ‘anti-constitutional’,” declared a legal brief submitted to the Berlin District Court by the German Socialist Equality Party (SGP) on 30 July.

In January this year, the SGP launched a lawsuit against its labelling by the Verfassungsschutz, in its public Report 2017, as “left-wing extremist” and an “object of observation.” The Federal Interior Ministry, which oversees the work of the Verfassungsschutz, responded with a detailed legal brief on 15 May. In it, the ministry declared “the advocacy of a democratic, egalitarian and socialist society,” the “agitation against so-called ‘imperialism’ and ‘militarism’,” and “thinking in class categories” to be unconstitutional.

The WSWS has already reported in detail on the SGP’s appeal and the Interior Ministry’s response.

Communists condemn ’saboteur‘ MPs and demand April 12 EU exit

Monday evening’s votes in the House of Commons confirm that a substantial number of MPs remain determined to bind Britain as closely as possible to the EU and its rules and institutions if they cannot stop Brexit altogether.

These MPs show utter contempt for the EU referendum result – the biggest democratic vote in our history – and make a mockery of their past pledges to ‚honour‘ the decision made by a clear majority of voters.

Belgium’s Communist Party (PCB) withdraws membership from the „European Left“

The recent Congress of the Communist Party of Belgium (Le Parti Communiste de Belgique), which took place in Brussels, decided with a 83% majority to withdraw the Party’s membership from the Party of the European Left (PEL).

According to PCB, several reasons led to this decision, including PEL’s hostility towards historical socialism (20th century socialism), as well as the „unacceptable attitude of the European Left’s leaders towards NATO“.

Did China think Donald Trump was bluffing on trade? How Beijing got it wrong

“They say this is about the midterm elections and things will change after that. They are totally wrong and they totally misread the situation. I feel partly this is because they have become more insulated, and partly because nobody dares to tell Beijing that they are wrong.”
