The fall of traditional parties in Europe: The case of Italy and Austria

LONDON—Europe has entered a period of turbulence that produces uncertainty in many ways. The white population is concerned that uncertainty has become the norm.

Every election seems to throw a dismal outcome for the traditional parties and their rulers, despite the huge back up and fanciful predictions they get from their bourgeois mainstream press at the  service of the capitalist class.

Italy’s recent elections on Sunday, December 4, 2016 added fuel to the growing crisis in Europe, where the mainstream parties and their leaders were successfully challenged by new political forces.

Brexit: The fall of the British pound points to the fall of the dollar

LONDON—We hear less now of the special relationship between the UK and the U.S. The capitalist crisis is so severe that every imperialist is too busy looking after themselves. 

Washington begged the British to stay in the EU, as Obama travelled to the UK to lecture the British about the necessities of staying within the European Union and Western imperialist realm. 

But the British public, guided by various demagogue white nationalist leaders, who did not plan for the consequence or outcome they were fighting for, gave the leave EU campaign a resounding victory.

Now the effects of the victory are sinking in and a new round of contradictions are emerging. The first one is the crumbling economy.

Brexit: White people lose their shit

United Kingdom––At the June 23, 2016 referendum 51.9 percent of British people voted to leave the European Union (EU), while 48.1 percent voted for U.K to remain in the EU. This sent shock waves throughout Europe and world’s capitalist centers.

Pan-Africanist accused Chairman Omali of “gay agenda,” barred APSP comrade from selling The Spear

BIRMINGHAM, England––The African People’s Socialist Party was first in Birmingham in 1983. We traveled there as part of a European and United Kingdom-wide tour to promote the outcome of the World Tribunal on Reparations for black People in the U.S. that was held by our movement in Brooklyn, New York in November 1982.
