In support of the popular movement in Lebanon, against State repression

Beirut has been the scene of growing demonstrations over the past few weeks in reaction to the government’s disastrous management of waste disposal and treatment; this market-based privatised approach has catastrophic environmental consequences, hitting first and foremost the most impoverished regions of the country. The closure of the open-air landfill site in Na’ameh following local mobilisations means that tons of rubbish are left on the streets of the country’s major cities.

Let 22 August be the first spark for our uprising against the capitalist sectarian regime

In the midst of the Arab uprisings in winter of 2011, the Lebanese people engaged actively by protesting for the downfall of the sectarian regime and the establishment of a secular society and state based on social justice and equality, as a giant leap forward towards the ultimate revolutionary change on  social, political and economic fronts.

Déclaration du Courant de la Gauche révolutionnaire en Syrie: EN SOLIDARITÉ AVEC LE SOULÈVEMENT DES MASSES POPULAIRES LIBANAIS

Notre pays frère le Liban vit ces derniers jours des manifestations et des protestations pacifiques qui exigent la chute du régime et l’assainissement du pays de ses politiciens… avant ses déchets.

Down with this Rubbish State!

Down with repression, corruption, exploitation and humiliation by the Lebanese state! Against corrupt deals and bargains sanctioned by the Lebanese State that lead to garbage catastrophes!

Day by day and at every milestone, the two dominant poles of the ruling class – March 8 and March 14 – are demonstrating its indifference regarding the fate of ordinary people. The only concern is its own direct interest in outrageous profits at the expense of everyone else.

Freedom from Dictatorships, Occupation, and Imperialism Is the Path of Resistance

The Zionist expansion and occupation of Palestinian territories took place with the support of European and British imperialism, followed by US imperialism. Entire cities and neighborhoods inside the occupied territories were thus systematically depopulated and replaced by countless settlements. In an attempt to eliminate any popular resistance against occupation, detention centers were set up to torture and kill and settlers were allowed to carry arms "to defend themselves against harassment by Palestinians."

Against Executing Political Opponents in Egypt of Any Side. Yes to democratic freedoms, particularly the right to demonstrate, organize, and strike

In recent weeks, Egypt has been witnessing grave developments in the regime’s approach to smash its political opponents. One year into the iron fist rule of General Sisi, tens of thousands from the ranks of the entire spectrum of the political opposition – Islamists and others – have been detained under the protest law.

Victoire à travers la lutte ouvrière internationale

D’année en année, en dépit de conditions de travail difficiles voire catastrophiques, les ouvriers descendent dans la rue pour célébrer le premier mai. La classe ouvrière au Liban continue de lutter pour les droits de l’homme, les droits socio-économiques, particulièrement la classe ouvrière immigrée, qui, au début de cette année, a fondé la première union pour les travailleurs et travailleuses domestiques au Moyen Orient.

Year after year, despite difficult and even catastrophic working conditions, workers in Lebanon take to the streets to celebrate May Day. The working class in Lebanon continues to struggle for human, social, and economic rights, particularly the migrant working class which, at the beginning of this year, established the first domestic workers' union in the Middle East.

One hundred years since the Armenian genocide: Together towards justice, truth and accountability

On the centennial of the Armenian Genocide, we must condemn the Turkish ruling class for the continued denial of the heinous massacre of Armenians in 1915 which left 1.5 million butchered and millions more displaced to neighboring countries, Lebanon being one of them. This political position of Turkish state follows that of the Ottoman regime before it. However, all the efforts and exertions of the Turkish state have not and will not erase the genocide from history.
