‘My camera against your baton’: Protesters rally in Paris as Senate debates controversial bill aimed at protecting police (VIDEO) Protesters denounced a controversial bill aimed at protecting the identity of police officers as they rallied outside the French Senate building in Paris on Tuesday. The government has affirmed its support for the legislation. People carried lit flares and placards saying, ‘My camera against your baton.’ They shouted anti-police slogans and demanded the resignation of Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin. https://on.rt.com/b3xn French communist leader calls for action against blockade on Cuba We are as always by the side of the Cuban people, said the PCF national secretary, who described the new UN vote in June at the General Assembly on the need to lift the blockade as important.

The Victims of Agent Orange the U.S. Has Never Acknowledged Hammond, Chagnon and Sengthong make up the core of the staff of a nongovernmental organization called the War Legacies Project. Hammond, a self-described Army brat whose father was a senior military officer in the war in Vietnam, founded the group in 2008. Chagnon, who is almost a generation older, was one of the first foreigners allowed to work in Laos after the conflict, representing a Quaker organization, the American Friends Service Committee. Sengthong, a retired schoolteacher who is Chagnon’s neighbor in the country’s capital, Vientiane, is responsible for the record-keeping and local coordination. The main focus of the War Legacies Project is to document the long-term effects of the defoliant known as Agent Orange and provide humanitarian aid to its victims. Named for the colored stripe painted on its barrels, Agent Orange — best known for its widespread use by the U.S. military to clear vegetation during the Vietnam War — is notorious for being laced with a chemical contaminant called 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-P-dioxin, or TCDD, regarded as one of the most toxic substances ever created. The use of the herbicide in the neutral nation of Laos by the United States — secretly, illegally and in large amounts — remains one of the last untold stories of the American war in Southeast Asia. Decades later, even in official military records, the spraying of Laos is mentioned only in passing. When the Air Force in 1982 finally released its partially redacted official history of the defoliation campaign, Operation Ranch Hand, the three pages on Laos attracted almost no attention, other than a statement from Gen. William Westmoreland, a former commander of U.S. forces in Vietnam, that he knew nothing about it — although it was he who ordered it in the first place. Laos remained a forgotten footnote to a lost war. To those who followed the conflict’s aftermath intimately, this was hardly surprising. Only in the last two decades has the United States finally acknowledged and taken responsibility for the legacy of Agent Orange in Vietnam, committing hundreds of millions of dollars to aiding the victims and cleaning up the worst-contaminated hot spots there. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/16/magazine/laos-agent-orange-vietnam-war.html#click=https://t.co/GUCLYMUKeD https://archive.is/kc3BK Digital Trails: How the FBI Identifies, Tracks and Rounds Up Dissidents Americans deserve the freedom to choose a life without surveillance and the government regulation that would make that possible. While we continue to believe the sentiment, we fear it may soon be obsolete or irrelevant. We deserve that freedom, but the window to achieve it narrows a little more each day. If we don’t act now, with great urgency, it may very well close for good.”—Charlie Warzel and Stuart A. Thompson, New York Times Databit by databit, we are building our own electronic concentration camps. With every new smart piece of smart technology we acquire, every new app we download, every new photo or post we share online, we are making it that much easier for the government and its corporate partners to identify, track and eventually round us up. Saint or sinner, it doesn’t matter because we’re all being swept up into a massive digital data dragnet that does not distinguish between those who are innocent of wrongdoing, suspects, or criminals. https://www.mintpressnews.com/fbi-surveillance-digital-trails-track-round-up-dissidents/276217/ The March Action and the Tragedy of German Communism In December 1920, the Communist Party of Germany (KPD) merged with the left wing of the Independent Social Democrats (USPD) under the leadership of Paul Levi. The unified party had a membership in excess of four hundred thousand. Its members had recently helped defeat an attempted far-right coup, the Kapp putsch, and had great confidence about the future. Within months, however, the KPD launched an ill-fated uprising on March 17, 1921 that became known as the March Action. The insurrection was a complete failure; in its aftermath, the KPD lost more than half of its membership. Paul Frölich (1884–1953) is best remembered today for his classic biography of Rosa Luxemburg, which is still in print. Frölich was a member of the KPD leadership in the 1920s and witnessed events firsthand. In this extract from a recently discovered memoir, lost until 2007 and now translated into English, Frölich explains why the KPD came to launch the March Action and how it unfolded. He also gives his impressions of influential Communist leaders like Paul Levi and the Hungarian Béla Kun, and recalls a discussion with Lenin in Moscow after the failure of the March Action. The following is an abridged extract from Paul Frölich’s memoir In the Radical Camp: A Political Autobiography 1890–1921, translated by David Fernbach as part of the Historical Materialism Book Series. https://www.jacobinmag.com/2021/03/march-action-tradegy-german-communism-history

Quote from Karl Marx, The Germany Ideology. How does this not apply to China today? Why do western leftists with no accomplishments or credentials to their name feel they have the authority to conclude the Chinese revolution has failed? To paraphrase Stalin, the march of history does not advance in a straight line. There are starts and stops. Great leaps and crushing setbacks. Why is the western left so obstinately convinced that the end of history thesis is correct despite all the evidence to the contrary?

>>1327163 You're complaint is that they're not doing it fast enough? That you want it right now? Despite that as of 2021, China is on their way to become the world hegemon surpassing the U.S.? Do you realize if they chose to hastily establish socialism as soon as they accumulated productive forces of Europe in early 1900's, they would still have to compete with the rest of the world, with each capitalist country having productive forces of 21st century? Shouldn't they wait for another revolutionary tide in the world, or another financial crisis that they could take advantage of?

Communism will be a superior economic system, which should produce superior growth, superior development, superior efficiency. Just as capitalism directly outcompeted feudalism when the minimum conditions for capitalism came about.

>>1329967 >Because we now know that people want more than just bread on the table and clothes to warm them So your argument "for" communism, is that communism is incapable of giving us these things, only capitalism can? Again, as in the post you replied to, what would be enough? As succdem mixed economy Scandinavian Eurocapitalism advances material conditions even further, will transition to communism again be rendered "temporarily" defunct?

>>1325085 >why is this man praised by communists Deng has become a key Chinese figure. Communist scholars and economists even if they know that he is a "capitalist roader" (reinstated capitalism in China) their interest to sell books, write articles, attend lectures (paid by the universities) and have celebrity status in China got the better of them. In addition, those same communist scholars and economics can exhibit China and its economic figures due to Dengs's reforms as an alternative (faux alternative: not too different from the British in the 1800s at some point with child labour which since has been significantly reduced if not being rid completely) to Capitalism in North America and Europe. Furthermore, despite Deng supporting the Mujaheddin and Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan, the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia in conjunction with the USA against Vietnam, evading Vietnam (and being defeated) and had cordial relations with Kissinger and Nixon he has been perceived as presenting China as a counter-balance to the USA. >and capitalists alike Deng has followed the dictates of the capitalists quite religiously. Those capitalists and economists alike have been from Chinese diaspora in Singapore to Wall Street and City of London which has flattered them. There was also the agreement for Deng to repay the bonds issued by the Qing Dynasty which Mao rescinded (and perhaps orchestrated the cultural revolution in China as to show that Mao's China isnt a continuation of the China of old and thus not liable to pay the bonds - in his estimation) China offers them a vast market to sell their goods and services, manufacture items for less, a source of foreign investment (in latter years) and a source of exploitable labour by the Chinese diaspora and unscrupulous boomers. >does anyone even hate him? Yes.

The only thing they can do is surprise attack but when we and they know we'll meet, we always destroy them(like in the Yellow Vests protests).

Something like this. >The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) is the highest internal control institution of the Communist Party, tasked with enforcing internal rules and regulations and combating corruption and malfeasance in the Party. Since the vast majority of officials at all levels of government are also Communist Party members, the commission is in practice the top anti-corruption body. >The modern commission was established at the 3rd Plenary Session of the 11th Central Committee in December 1978. Control systems had existed previously under the name "Central Control Commission" for a brief period in 1927 and again between 1955 and 1968, and under its present name from 1949 to 1955. It was disbanded during the Cultural Revolution in 1969. In 1993, the internal operations of the agency and the government's Ministry of Supervision (MOS) were merged. Although the commission is theoretically independent of the Party's executive institutions such as the Central Committee and its Politburo, historically the work of the CCDI has been directed by the Party's top leaders. However, beginning with Hu Jintao's term as General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party in November 2002, and especially following Xi Jinping's assumption of the party leadership in November 2012, the CCDI has undergone significant reforms to make it more independent from party operations below the Central Committee. >According to the Party's Constitution, the members of the CCDI are elected by the National Congress and serve for a term of five years. After the national congress in which it is elected, the CCDI convenes to elect its Secretary, deputy secretaries, secretary general and Standing Committee. Elected officials must then be endorsed by the Central Committee to take office. The Secretary of the CCDI has, since 1997, been a member of the Politburo Standing Committee and, since 2009, served as the leader of the Central Leading Group for Inspection Work. The current secretary is Zhao Leji, who took office on 25 October 2017. <but who watchman muh watchman that's an absurd complaint you can literally make of any accountability mechanism, it's turtles all the way down
>>1329228 <but who watchman muh watchman >that's an absurd complaint you can literally make of any accountability mechanism, it's turtles all the way down Yes, but neither making the watchmen complaint against a particular proposal as if it were not a permanent problem nor rejecting the complaint by pointing out the problem is permanent really helps us. Different accountability mechanisms have different degrees of vulnerability. We can't solve it, but we should investigate how to minimize the problem. How can a hierarchy of institutions work out? The closer you get to the top in the diagram, the more dangerous are the effects of corruption in that segment for society as a whole. Let's play God and put an office on top of everything called the ACD (anti-corruption dudes). Let's say the ACD can start an investigation on any institution below whenever they feel like doing that and they can also decide what the punishments should be. That's clearly a bit too much power, no? Maybe it's better to have the ACD only spring into action upon request. – Requests by which people and institutions about which people and institutions? Is it maybe more sensible to only process requests by lower tiers against higher tiers? I suppose the higher tiers don't really need much extra help in their usual interactions with the lower tiers. Another way to limit the power of the ACD would be that they can only mete out punishment if they reach decisions internally with super-majorities. But isn't this measure against potential abuse of power completely hollow in a single-party state and more general in states with neither sortition nor proportional elections? There could still be requirements for representing regions or age groups within the ACD I guess.
