The General Election, 8th June 2017

The U.K. General Election on the 8th June is an event which has been orchestrated in order to re-centre power in the hands of the Ruling Class via their puppets in Parliament.

The U.K. Freedom Referendum of 23rd June 2016 (Brexit) saw the people send a direct order to the politicians in London and Brussels that we do not want to be controlled by unelected bureaucrats.  The reaction of the politicians was fascinating insofar as it showed their open contempt for the will of the people.  We were told that voting to leave the EU would mean we were out of the EU and that was that. Then we were introduced to Article 50 and the absurdity of having to negotiate our freedom - hardly democratic at all.

The General Election - A Brexit Fudge

The UK General Election is a complete farce.  It has been billed by the media as the Brexit Election, but that is just a cover for the real work afoot.  With the exception of the Liberal Democrats who are crying for a second referendum in the hope that the decision of the people of the UK will be reversed, the main parties have come to accept the result.  It is what they intend to do with Brexit that is of concern.

The people voted to leave the European Union, because we are sick of having our lives dictated by outside force.  In the run up to the successful independence vote, we were subjected to scare stories to the effect that in we voted to leave on the 23rd June, then on the 24th June, the UK would instantly be apart from the EU and life as we know it would end.  On the 24th we were not free, but rather we were informed that the UK now had to undergo divorce negotiations!

Freedom isn't negotiated, it is taken! The whole Article 50 process was suddenly announced as a way of keeping us tied to the EU, and to make matters worse, the fraudulent process wasn't even triggered to begin until March of the following year, with negotiations still not underway at the time of the General Election of the following June.

The regional parties:

UKIP (the closest that England has to a regionalist party, in spite of having UK in its name)
Nigel Farage, the leader of UKIP at the time of the independence referendum, was presented with a golden opportunity to capitalise on the feeling of anger towards the EU bureaucracy (not the people of Europe, but the artificial country), but instead of holding the politicians to account so we could leave that hated corporate state, he resigned as leader, leaving UKIP in disarray.  UKIP are still in disarray, and they have lost the confidence of the ordinary Working Class people who supported their efforts to get a referendum, leaving UKIP as a spent force, which cannot be considered as a major party, and which will have the sole impact of a degree of vote splitting, weakening the other parties, but ultimately being of little consequence.

The separatists in Scotland have made fools of themselves in their constant cries for an independent Scotland (something we applaud) tied to demands for Scotland to become a state of the EU.  Independence from London only makes sense if power is transferred entirely to Scotland. The SNP is not a Scottish National Party. The SNP is the Strasbourg National Party.  The SNP is a powerful party, but it has weakened itself with these obviously contradictory expressions of sovereignty.

Plaid Cymru
In Cymru, the separatist Plaid Cymru has taken a similar path to the SNP in Scotland. However, Cymru, like England, voted overwhelmingly to leave the EU.  Take Scotland and Northern Ireland out of the equation, and the country of England-Cymru, voted as a unified bloc to get out of the EU. London is a different matter, by London is a globalised city which has by little in common with the UK as a whole, and which post revolution would need to be treated as a city under occupation, not as our capital.  Plaid is only a factor in Gwynedd, and would perhaps be better to remain itself Plaid Gwynedd!  There is a party called Llais Gwynedd, which is a nationalist party looking after the people of Gwynedd. Plaid is a front for globalism, which the great Saunders Lewis would be ashamed of. 

The cross-British parties

The Liberal Democrats
This party is the home for the hardcore of liberal and libertine degenerates.  The leader, little Timmy Fallon, is the only Working Class party leader from the inner circle of the Establishment parties.  Regardless, and perhaps because he is a devotee of the Abrahamic Cult of xtianity, Fallon is an avowed Globalist.  He has pledged that if his party is elected, the people of the U.K. will be subjected to another referendum on membership of the hated EU, in the hope that if enough propaganda is thrown at us, the will of the majority will be overturned and we will be cowed into staying as inmates of the capitalist slave plantation which misrules most of the European continent.  He also wants to open the borders to unlimited 'refugees', ensuring that the Working Class areas of the U.K. are devastated by massive competition for employment and housing, and that the NHS collapses completely.

Fallon is a hypocrite as well as an enemy of the Working Class.  He likes to boast of how seriously brain damaged he is, taking pride in praying to his imaginary friend at bedtime, reading his book of fables in which his imaginary friend's equally imaginary dad declares war on homosexuals. But because the rest of his liberal partners in sentimental piffle hate homophobia, Fallon contorts himself in unimaginable ways to claim to be a devout xtianity AND a champion of gay rights!  Just like smackheads should be taken into schools to scare children away from ever considering taking heroin, Fallon should be taken around schools to let children see just how dangerous to sanity is the cult of xtianity (with the necessary strait jacket firmly applied of course).

The Liberal Democrats are a sad group, but there are enough mentally damaged people in the UK to ensure they get about a dozen MPs elected.  These people are a danger to anyone they gain any authority over.  Most worryingly, the people who push the liberal identity politics global nonsense, are those who find jobs in education, social services, the media, the police, the prison service, local government, the civil service, and many other areas of importance, making their sickness a cause of serious concern which cannot be overstated.

The Labour Party

Labour is a party divided.  The followers of war criminal Tony Blair, are following their idol's example in refusing to accept the will of the people in leaving the EU.  They want to force through a second referendum, which like the Dublin re-jig of up the Maastricht treaty, will be manipulated to ensure the will of the hidden rulers is upheld, and we remain chained to the capitalist corporate filth who really run the EU.

The official leader of Labour, Jeremy Corbyn, is a democratic socialist reformist, who doesn't have the stomach for revolutionary politics.  His policies are sticking plasters for a dying system.  He wants to tax the private health care system to pay for the NHS, tax private schools to pay for our schools, tax big business to pay for more measures to keep the Working Class from rattling our chains too loudly.  He would leave the Ruling Class untouched, other than taking a tiny percentage of their obscene wealth from them - which they would get back in any case many times by screwing the people in different ways.

Jeremy Corbyn is a reformist.  He has no interest in revolutionary politics.  His ideological position is far from being a strong one.  He proposes tax rises for the rich and for corporations, to fund the Welfare State.  The Welfare State is a safety blanket which keeps the Capitalist system safe from rebellion.  Ironically, the depraved Conservatives are in a position to create revolutionaries by openly oppressing the people.  Labour is for open borders, for the end of real sovereignty.  They would keep us in the EU Single Market, which in essence means they would keep us in the EU with the exception of its Parliament!

A Labour government would tax and spend, to keep the Proletariat in a state of semi comfortable servitude. But by allowing open borders and the continued rule of the corporations which control the EU, they would increase the misery of the Working Class at the same time as increasing the tax debt of the UK, making the country a debt-slave of the IMF.  

Labour Party sycophants
Although claiming to be Marxist, the Communist Party of Britain (CPB, not CPGB-ML), has thrown its weight behind Labour.  This is an indication of how the CPB has lost its way since its inception in 1920.  This General Election will the first in nearly a century that the CPB has not contested a single seat.  It is also the first in which it has called for all people to vote for a democratic socialist party, making the CPB itself an advocate of reformism, and thus an apologist for the capitalist system.  That the CPB has shamed itself by aligning with the democratic socialist reformers speaks volumes about its slide into revisionism and anti-Socialism.  We join the CPGB-ML and others in condemning the CPB for its support for an entity which exists only to keep Capitalism afloat.  The following have all pledged to fight for the Labour Party, begging the question why their leaders don't just dissolve their organisations and join the Labour Party (membership subs, ego-mania from being heads of steering committees being the only reason to keep separate!):
Alliance for Workers' Liberty
Communist Party of Britain
New Communist Party 
Socialist Party
Socialist Workers' Party (GB)
Trade Union and Socialist Coalition
Workers' Power
Young Communist League (CPB children's section)

There are certain to be more reformists, revisionists, democratic socialists, trotskyites and similar embarrassments to the Left who have thrown their lot in with Corbyn's Labour Party.  This highlights the need for Revolutionary Socialists to steer clear from the false promises of the capitalist apologists of the Labour Party and all who have so kindly voiced their support for them and by doing so have shown that they are agents of the enemy, and not Comrades in the struggle for freedom.

The Conservative Party (the Tories)
A vote for the Tories is a vote for Globalisation.  (To be fair, a vote for any of the 'big three' is a vote for globalism in one way or another.)  Theresa May has repeatedly stated that she will use a landslide mandate to push through her vision of making the UK a 'global britain', with all the necessary reductions in Workers' Rights which would be needed to compete with countries like India and China.  The Tories have longed to abandon the EU's European Social Charter, which has prevented them from imposing the harshest brutalisation of the Working Class for their corporate owners.  A major Tory victory will allow them to restore the UK to neo-feudalism, with the people split into the powerful rulering view and the oppressed many.

Not content with turning the UK into a region of the UN in economic terms, shifting sovereignty even further away than it would be if we remained in the EU, the Tories have published a manifesto which is nothing but an attack on the people of the UK.

A Conservative government will take away the welfare support network for the elderly, leaving them in the position where they are unable to leave their homes to their children, but must sell them to satisfy the grabbing thievery of the capitalists who run the private health care system into which the elderly are condemned to eek out the remainder of their lives.  This policy declaration has been watered down to appease dissatisfied voters who rightly fear being made to give up their homes in the event of old age ill-health,but the attack on the people remains a worry for all except those who have relatives who are themselves free from the stranglehold of capitalism. The Tories will crush the Working Class while boosting the coffers of their parasitic controllers.

The people are likely to vote the Tory scum into power by a massive landslide.  They will win, and they will use their victory to smash what is left of the Socialist system of protection which has limited the ability of the enemies of the people to wholly take over the lives of the people.  A Tory victory WILL be a tragedy, but we are faced with an ongoing tragedy in which all of the main parties of the UK are fighting for the interests of the system, not the people.

So, what can be done?

This brings us to the question which activists have been discussing and supporters have been asking - what is the position of SWPE on the General Election, in terms of the use of the vote itself?

SWPE calls on members and supporters to support any genuine Socialist or Communist parties which stand candidates.  The majority of Trotskyites and other dross have lined up with Labour, making the revolutionary option more apparent.  In the absence of such candidates, anyone who campaigns for closed borders or at the very least for a 'hard Brexit' should be supported.  In the absence of any of the above, we call for a boycott of constituencies in which only Capitalists and their social democratic apologists stand. 

The choice we are facing in voting Lib Dem, Labour or Tory, is whether we which to be beaten with a wooden club, a piece of two by four, or a shillelagh - the end result is the same, injury and suffering.  SWPE does not believe in the democratic principle as represented by the Westminster elections.  We do encourage people to get active in local politics where they are close to the people and can put forward radical ideas, but on a UK national level, the system is a closed shop and only capitalist corporatists are allowed to play the game.

Nothing changes on the 8th of June.  Whoever wins, or more accurately, how much of a majority the Tories gain, the Capitalist Globalist menace will remain in place.  Most likely, if Labour loses by a vast amount, Corbyn will be replaced by a Blairite and the temporary schism in the Establishment will be over.  Our task is to expose the lies of the parties of the Ruling Class (and their hangers on) and to push for genuine revolutionary politics to sweep the entire system away in the baptismal fire of the Peoples' Uprising.

Women in the Struggle - Against Patriarchal Reaction

The following is the work of Comrades across the English Channel in France.  It is printed here as a recognition of the reactionary drive to push Women into a position of subjugation.  The liberal bourgeois 'feminists' who excuse the brutality of Islam, are no different from the rightwing extremists who openly call for White Sharia, with Women made to 'know their place', in the kitchen and the bedroom, with voices silenced, opinions denied, access to work halted, and of course a complete ban on any political action, even calling for the vote to be snatched away.

The work below can be found in its original French at the site:

Since the advent of Christianity and Judeo-Monotheistic religions, woman has become the slave of the will of men, obliged to be subdued and placed at the bottom of the social ladder, just like an animal. A pretty woman had to be careful not to be seen as a bewitching witch lest she end up going mad at the interrogation before being burned alive by the Holy Inquisition. 

For centuries the European woman 's life suffered shameful judgements and all catastrophes were blamed on them (sterility, helplessness, sickness, witches' history, bad harvests, etc.), the French Revolution enabled us to free ourselves from the " Influence of the Church, The years following the events of 1789 and the social changes eventually gave us the right to vote, to speak, to choose our destiny and to have the same rights as men. Women will gain their rights in May 1968 and sexual liberation, the triumph of the Left over the Republican Right and the evolution of progressive ideas, will give us access to politics and put us on an equal footing with men. 

Although today European women have come a long way in the struggle for their fundamental rights, we are now seeing a return to religious obscurantism with the rise of Islam and reactionary Christian fanatics who would like a return to the past, to see us attached to a table leg, 2 feet from a man who owns us, prohibited from speaking. 

We women in Europe are more numerous than men and we are lucky enough to have access to several areas of our choice, although there is a lack of work and many trades are closed to us, there is nothing to stop us from revolting against the past, but instead we have acculturated bitches who are subjected to their new masters. Our liberation has served us to express our wish to return to the rand bobonne at home and our Catholics rising in advance of this possible return to the slavery of women. 

It is up to us to choose our destiny, so as not to end up at a foot of the table with a veil on the face and a chastity belt as a wedding gift. 

Judaeo-monotheism must be the main enemy of woman, and pagan values, our liberating sword.

It was not a long time ago, when women were denied the right to speak, to laugh, to vote and to take their destiny into their own hands. 

The man of reaction, of pastism and of (moral) values  have always sought to bar the way and to hinder the progress and evolution of our continent, keeping women miserable and deliberately stultified by the powerful march of the time . 

It was the diverse leagues of the Left which changed our continent and showed us the path of emancipation, we could finally dream of another society that will respect us as well as men, no more, no less than the recognition of our role as a woman in this human world.

In 1944, the right to vote granted to women will change the whole of society and give to women an important input of the political choices that the people will make during the various elections. Women will have to take an interest in politics and the rights they can gain. 

In May 68 women became freer and truly respected, to be able to say without the opinion of the man "No" to a political system that seemed to ignore them, to take charge of their lives and to be equal to men. Beauty will no longer be obliged to wash the dishes,to be the servant of the lord, her husband's wife, the maid of his master, the secretary of his boss, they will choose what they want to be.

During the post-war years, many women around the world will engage in various revolutionary groups (RAF, Red Brigade, FARC, IRA, ETA, Japanese Red Army, Action Direct, etc.) 
until the Berlin Wall Falls and the Red block collapses and the hopes of a more just society collapses with it. 

The triumph of the Capitalist system over the Socialist system triggered the arrival of the Right-Nationalist demands in Eastern Europe and the West. 

Globalisation and the invasion of the capitalist model allowed religious and political extremes to redo their apparitions and pointed to the Communist system and the Capitalistic System which they sustained during the Cold War. 

Today, women only retain only the fact of being able to say no to their men, to make love with who they want and to be able to wear masculine clothes, they do not vote practically anymore, they are disinterested in politics, in history, and how they won their rights. 

The woman begins little by little to become again what she has fought, that is, subjected to the choices of her men, as if they could not think for themselves.  Today there are more and more veiled European women, who walk  3 meters behind their men, following like bitches to which one would have hung a leash.  There is another example, we have to the Right-Nationalist women who struggle to return to be good little women in the home, pious and naive , As well as, Extreme left we have these pro-LGBT women who demonstrate for the right of Muslims to the Burqa and the Niqab in public places ... This is the world turned upside down.  Women like Louise Weiss must be turning in their graves. 

We are the daughters of the revolutionary women who, as of yesterday, were still going down the streets with red flags in their hands, struggling for their rights and political and cultural changes.  We must remember that we can be a political force And not only consumers of perfumes, make-up, pretty boots and trendy decocts, we refuse to be objects used to serve the capitalist system, we have our free will and we will fight to keep it,

The patriarchal society has for years considered the girl as a doll, a useless object or a food processor, the choices are wide. It is common to see in some families the young girls who serve and cleanse the table and do the dishes, while the boys and the father are discussing at the table.  This marks the education of the female child and conditions it to its future role as a submissive woman, who will reproduce the same pattern with her future children. The little woman with a whole manual of the perfect submissive, a library of books like "Martine cooks" conditions the girl to have all the reflexes of the perfect woman. 

"Barbies", dolls and false cooks are tools for conditioning the woman during her childhood.

The education of our children must be a priority for us, we can not afford to continue to have generations of stupid and ignorant young girls conditioned to be vulgar consumers and objects of consumption.

At the table, they must also listen to the serious conversations of the parents, and in the same way as boys they must participate in sports activities, read enriching books, films or intelligent and interesting cartoons.

UK Elections: A Pantomime

The 4th of May is the day that the people of England and Cymru go to the ballot box to select the people who will represent them in local government.

Local Elections have not yet been tainted by big party politics, although there is a creeping intrusion of corporate corruption into this tier of politics.  At the nearest level to the people, there is still a chance for individuals who care about the people, to get positions of representation where they can speak out against the inhumanity of the UK government and the corporations which control it.

SWPE fully supports the concept of local democracy.  As Socialists we support the democratisation of the economy, with people being in charge of the organisations they work in.  For us, each town must be seen as a cooperative entity, with everyone working together for the good of the town as a whole.  Local Government is the last area of UK politics where the natural Socialist way of dealing with one another still prevails.

We call for everyone who votes in local elections to vote for the candidates who will work for the community.  We call for any candidates who pledge allegiance to the main parties (Labour, Conservative, Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru), rather than the local people, to be ignored, and for good local people to be supported.  There will be candidates who foolishly accept the yoke of the big parties, but are nonetheless good people who will do what is right for the community, rather than what their leaders dictate.  These people may be the best choice, although independents are more trustworthy than anyone who could be using the party label as a means of entering the Westminster or Senedd dens of despotism at a later date.

The next election to follow the local ones, is the election to the UK Parliament.  This election will see the results of the local elections nullified, as the power of local government is snatched back by the central authority which gives out scraps as it sees fit, but never allows any real power to be utilised at a level closer to the people.

On the 8th of June, the corrupt party stooges who have no allegiance to the people, only a desire to join the rats in Westminster, will be decided.  SWPE has no time for any of the parties which have bought their way into the talking chambers of the Ruling Class mouthpiece.  They may speak of different policies, but they any difference they may have, are of no consequence.

The Independent Labour Party of John Bruce Glasier was a Socialist party which fought for the Working Class.  The rump of that once fine organisation sits pathetically inside the modern Labour Party; a party which has betrayed the Working Class at every opportunity, calling for open borders, for free trade, for globalism as the path to follow.  We hold the original ILP in high regard, and are certain that JBG himself would be as disgusted with the capitalist whores of the Labour Party as we are.  Jeremy Corbyn is infinitely better than the War Criminal, Tony Blair, but his steadfast resolve to steer the UK into a Brexit which sees the country still inside the single market, makes him nothing but a Liberal Democrat with a different coloured tie.

The Liberal Democrats themselves are a foul body of globalist identity politics enemies of the people. The leader of that band of fools is Tim Farron - the only Working Class leader of any of the main parties, but perhaps because of this, an even greater enemy of the people than the rest of them. Farron made a complete fool of himself when he proclaimed that he is a devout xtian, but then also claimed to be anti-homophobic, in spite of his religion being undeniably homophobic to the core.  Farron wants to stop Brexit altogether, proving that his loyalty lies completely with the forces of globalism. Anyone who thinks that his idiots number so few as to be of no importance, should recall that the Lib Dems under Nick Clegg formed a part of the Conservative Coalition which brought in the EU dictated (banker dictated) austerity, which brought millions into poverty and is still wrecking the lives of the common people.

The Conservatives are play acting opposition to the EU as a means of garnering the support of the majority of the people who voted to get out of the EU prison.  There are some who argue like Labour for a 'soft Brexit' which means no Brexit.  Others argue for a 'hard Brexit', which will see the UK turned into a hub of global capitalism.  This means, open borders for commerce, open borders for cheap labour, tax breaks for the rich, absolute poverty for the rest.

There are the Greens also, but they are no different to the Lib Dems, perhaps only different in their maniac fanaticism for open borders - which as we can see, their alleged rivals in the Conservatives, are equally pushing for.

UKIP?  They are a spent force.  When Farage abandoned them after Victory Day on the 23rd June 2016, this signalled the reality that they were never meant to be anything but a pressure group, and that their then leader was a part of the system.  His cosying to Trump in the USA - the president who promised protectionism but has delivered more globalist integration - is indication of his character.

Unlike the local elections which give us a level of choice, the national elections offer varying shades of globalisation.  The result will without doubt be a Conservative majority, with the regime given the excuse that the people want the UK to be a Global Britain, allowing the bankers and corporations to destroy any Workers Rights we still have, allowing for the NHS to be fully privatised, allowing for our country to be asset stripped and our people reduced to complete financial misery and social disintegration.

The best we can do is to vote where we can for candidates who are not a part of the system.  In the case of Tim Farron, a vote for the Fish Finger which has been put up against his (in all seriousness, it really has), would be a good use of the vote to show our hatred for his ideology and his hypocritical religious stance.  In constituencies where anti-Globalists are standing, we can support them.  They will not win, but we can help to voice dissent by voting for anti-system groups.  Where no alternatives are standing, it is better to abstain than to vore for any of them.

What matters now is what comes after the election.  The phony democracy is becoming ever more obviously a front for big business and globalisation.  We are Revolutionaries, not Democratic Socialists.  We will not embarrass ourselves by endorsing Corbyn, like the CPGB did.  We share with our Comrades in the CPGB-ML the understanding that Corbyn is a part of the system and even if he was elected, he would be as likely to go against globalism as Donald Trump is in the USA!

Stand firm Comrades.  The Ballot Box changes nothing, it only reflects the power that exists already. Our job is to join with like-minded people and groups to gain power and to make the ridiculous irrelevant election system, obsolete.

May 1st: Beltane and International Workers' Day

The 1st of May is an important day for Socialists and for the defenders of nature against the tyranny of Abrahamism.  SWPE doubly celebrates this day, which brings together different aspects of the struggle at the same time.

As Socialists, International Workers' Day is a day of solemn reflection for the plight of the Working Class worldwide.  It is particularly poignant with the UK General Election a mere month away.  With the Labour Party moving ever further away from its Working Class foundations, and with the Tories arrogantly declaring their loyalty to the globalist bankers (not to forget the lunatic liberals who think the Working Class only exist in a Charles Dickens novel), the Working Class is more embattled in the UK than at any time in living memory.

Beltane is also marked today, but rather than as a solemn occasion, it is a time for joy.  Beltane marks the first day of summer, the glorious beauty of the natural world and the appreciation of our place in it.

The enemies of the Working Class have sought to keep us in submission and subordination for as long as there has been despotism.  The unity of Beltane and International Workers' Day is more than a coincidence.  The Ruling Class used their new 'religion' of Christianity to justify their control over the common people.  The Abrahamists pushed the beginning of summer to the beginning of June, in an attempt to break us from our spiritual connection with nature.  The survival of May Day is a victory for the Heathen Working Class over the Abrahamic Ruling Class. Centuries of control have not broken our spirit.  The treacherous politicians of the controlled false democracy are as much our enemies as the clergy who would have us bend our knee to the 'divine' right of the Ruling Class to tell us how to live.  In the UK, Beltane has never been crushed, nor has it been commercialised like our ancient festivals which have been distorted into the capitalist orgies of xmas and easter.

May Day is both a time of reflection as we look at the power of the enemy to control the democratic system and deny us any no major party fit to vote for, and also a time of defiance as we realise that the Ruling Class has only superficial power which it maintains with financial domination over us, but which cannot penetrate into our inner psyche, no matter how much money they reward their collaborators with, or how much poverty they inflict on we who resist.

So Good Health to all of you Comrades.  Our people have endured the tyranny of the Ruling Class poison of Abrahamism, but that sickness is fading away as our Heathenism returns to an open declaration of unity of the people and nature - of a Socialism which is deeper than any economics; a Socialism which is an expression of life itself. All the brutality of the Inquisition, the 'religious' persecutions, the dictatorship of the church, has come to nothing.  The material manipulation of our people will also fail as we rise up and throw off the chains of capitalism and embrace the natural order of Socialism.

Our plight is a hard one, but when we take a step back and see how the enemy has won at a superficial level and never achieved victory in any way which matters, we can be assured that we are far stronger than they are, and that we will be victorious at every level, with the Socialist future eclipsing the terror of Capitalism forever.

Ostara is for the Free. Easter is for the Slaves

SWPE is a party which understands the need to break the capitalist mind control. It is not enough to look at the economic stranglehold of capitalism, there are other - often more powerful - forms of control.  One such form of control is religion. And what better time to look at the destructive force of religion than  at the highest festival of Christianity, 'Easter'.

The Christian celebration of Easter marks the date when the Christian Church tells us that a man named Jesus (for whom their is no historical evidence independent of the Church itself), was executed by the Roman Empire at the request of the Hebrew authorities, for behaving in a manner which was disrespectful of said authorities.  We are supposed to believe that because the Hebrew authorities ordered this man's execution, that makes Christians and Jews implacable enemies. However, the story-tellers would have us believe that Jesus was in Jerusalem at this time in order to celebrate and sanctify the Hebrew festival of Pesach (Passover), making him an adherent and defender of the Hebrew faith, and therefore as a practioner of that faith, a Jew himself.  The most important festival of Christianity is the origin of Christian anti-Semitism, and of Christian reverence for the religion of the Jewish people!  With a beginning like that, no wonder the Christians are so confused about what they are supposed to believe!

But to go back to Pesach, the festival is a celebration of Hebrew Supremacy.  The infamous god of the Hebrews is said to have sent his chief executioner - no less that the Angel of Death itself - to murder all the infants in Egypt, as a punishment for the Egyptians failing to recognise the Hebrews as the Ruling Class, as chosen by their own deity.  Of course, there is no historical proof of this crime against humanity ever happening - other than in the religious texts which dutifully describe it as fact, referencing themselves as proof.

By celebrating Peasch/Passover, Jesus sends a clear message that he believes in the Chosen People tale and by so doing, legitimises for all his followers, the idea of a hereditary Ruling Class and an unchangeable Class System.  This reinforces the rule of Capitalism with the elite having the right to dictate to the rest of the people, and it makes the idea of Revolution against 'god's' wishes.  The concept of obedience to authority being rewarded in some imaginary afterlife, takes on a racist element, with the Chosen People ideology allowing for a distinct class of people to have the right to impose any manner of tyranny on those who are not Chosen.  The Ruling Class can do what they want and the Working Class just have to put up with it and wait to be rewarded when they are dead.  A great charter for the Rulers, but not so great for the Ruled.

On to Easter.  The festival of Easter is the celebration of a man dying and coming ack to life after three days, then sneaking around to tell his best mates that he has conquered death because he is a god in human form.  He claims that he has done this to save all of humanity from being sent to 'hell' for eternal torture, for crimes commited before they were born by an ancient ancestor for who their is no historical proof other than in the Hebrew texts which are the unquestionable word of god and any research into them is itself punishable by a long-term trip to hell.  Why he didn't just appear on a cloud and tell the entire world, or maybe close down hell, end death and merge the physical realm with his 'Heaven' is never explained.  The man who could defeat death and as a god could do absolutely anything, preferred to do it in secret and chose as the only people who could verify his amazing deeds, people who could not be historically proven to ever have existed, except - yes you guessed it - in the Flat Earth preaching, Ruling Class reinforcing, Dinosaur / Stone Henge denying 'sacred and infallible' Abrahamic texts.

If this all seems a little implausible, it gets worse.  The Jesus figure himself is a rehashing of a story which was told at least 16 times before (see the World's 16 Crucified Saviours).  The Bible in all its forms (Torah, New Testament, Talmud, Koran, Book of Mormon etc), justifies itself, with historical proof for anything at all, being alarmingly lacking.

It should surprise no-one to discover that - just like Christmas - 'Easter' is a wholly Heathen festival which has been corrupted to justify the rule of despots and financiers, under the veneer of being a time of reflection for the adherents of the Abrahamic cult of Christianity. The name 'Easter' is the modern English spelling of Œstre, which comes from the German Ostara (Ost meaning East, and in the name Ostara referring to the light of dawn, shining from the east). The modern German name for Easter is Ostern - the etymological trail is not hard to follow.

Ostara is the Saxon (Heathen) Great Mother Goddess of fertility, whose festival is associated with the Spring Equinox - the time of rebirth after Winter. Her sacred animal is the Hare (due in part to its famous sex drive), which is venerated as the 'Easter Bunny'.  It is from Œstre that we get Œstrogen - the female hormone. Easter is a festival to celebrate a return to life (a resurrection if one prefers that term) following the 'death' of Winter, and as one would expect of a celebration of life, it is also a celebration of fertility.  The super-fertile Easter Bunny is joined by the giving of painted Easter Eggs (now more commonly, colourfully wrapped chocolate eggs) in what is an ancient Heathen festival of renewal.

In what is a remarkable display of the cruelty of the Christian Elders, the origins of the Easter Egg Hunt can be found in the persecution of the followers of the indigenous ways, by those who pushed the new religion at the point of a sword.  The followers of Christianity converted Europe to Christianity by murdering those who wouldn't accept the new ideology.  The giving of coloured Eggs to honour Œstre/Ostara had to be done in such a way as to keep attention away from those doing the giving. Parents would hide the eggs and children would hunt for them (being especially careful to do so when the brutal Christian bigots were not looking).  This resulted in the thugs of the Church following children at the time of the festival and upon catching them with coloured eggs, punishing them and their families by burning them alive or similarly torturing and murdering them.

The Cult of the Phrygian fertility goddess Cybele, which appeared in Rome at least two centuries before Jesus is said to have been born, included the worship of her consort Attis. Attis was born of a virgin; he died on Black Friday (at the time of the Spring Equinox) and was resurrected three days later. It isn't quite so easy to claim that the Resurrection has nothing to do with Easter as it is to dismiss Easter Eggs. As Christianity gained numbers of followers, the followers of Jesus attacked the followers of Attis, making them early victims of the persecution and violence which was to plunge Europe into the Dark Ages.

The whole story of the Resurrection was added on to Christianity to give the ideology a more mystical element and make it easier for Heathens to be converted.  In the early Church, there was debate as to whether Jesus was a god, a being of light, a revolutionary or a prophet.  He was made into a god by virtue of a majority vote in Nicæa, at the same time as gospels unacceptable to the Roman Empire, were shelved. A festival which we have been told is exclusively Christian, is in fact a pre-Christian, Heathen one, which was formally made a part of Christianity at the 325 Council of Nicæa. Like pretty much all of Christian doctrine, it was included in the religion by means of a vote of men - hardly something one would expect of the work of a god! This explains why no opportunity has been missed by the three branches of the Abrahamic religion (Judaism, Christianity, Islam), to destroy the libraries of antiquity and all other sources of knowledge which prove that the three-headed religion is a political creation which has mixed lies with stolen knowledge (falsely attributed to itself), to gain near-global mastery.

The Christian Easter is the religious justification for the existence of the Ruling Class, based on a Cult of Death and Obedience.  The pre-Christian Ostara is a festival of life, which celebrates the end of winter, the return of the bounty of nature, of joy, of reproduction, and of the positivity and hope which comes from the unity of the People and Nature.  Ostara is the spiritual embodiment of the Socialist ethos.  Easter is the imposition of the fear and tyranny of the Capitalist way of thinking. Ostara is for people who understand the beauty of nature, the need for mutual support, the importance of self reliance.  Easter is for people who 'know their place' and who will not fight for a better world because they have been hoodwinked into believing that acting as obedient little slaves in this world will gain them riches in an unknown world which they are told they will enter when they are dead.

To break free from Capitalism requires breaking free from the mental chains which prevent us seeing that we can have a better world in the world of nature, rather than waiting until we are dead for something which the religious arm of the Ruling Class tell us awaits good obedient serfs..  When Lenin called religion the opiate of the masses, he was referring to all religions wich demand obedience in their followers.  Christianity, (with its military/class hierarchy of priests, bishops, cardinals, pope) is a religion which demands blind faith in its followers.  The pre-Christian Heathen religions of our ancesters - the Druidism, Odinism, Asatru, Vanatru and others - placed importance on the here and now, on community, on what we would now term environmentalism.  Our ancesters considered anything which comes after death as of lesser importance.

As Socialists, we have to reject the opiate-like mind destruction and slave-enducing mental/spiritual poison of the Abrahamic religion in any of its forms.  We need to experience the bond of nature and people which the Heathen way of thinking reinforces.  We need to awaken from our spiritual slumber and embrace the positive life-enhancing ideals of those who came before the Abrahamic butchers enslaved most of humanity.

Ostara is for the Free. Easter is for the Slaves.

Even though Ostara has been and gone - happening at the time of the Spring Equinox - on this day when the imposter is in full flow, it is time to reaffirm our opposition to the ways of the enemy, and to reaffirm our own ways as a source of strength and a foundation for rebirth and renewal.

Happy Ostara!

Long Live the DPRK. Freedom from Yankee Imperialism

Today marks what would have been the 105th Birthday of the founder of the free sovereign Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

The capitalist multi-millionaire president of the USA has threatened the DPRK with war for daring to have its own system of government and to live as a shining example of the fact that it is possible to have an economy which serves the people and not global bankers.

We salute the people of the DPRK and pledge our friendship and our support for all who are fighting against the terrorist maniacs who are pushing the USA and its criminal Zionist collaborators to threaten the DPRK with war.

The 'crime' of the DPRK is its determination to maintain its own way and to not submit to the tyranny of global finance capitalism and multinational corporate slavery.  The DPRK is one of only a very few countries without a Rothschild Central Bank.

As stated on the DPRK's website:

"The Democratic People's Republic of Korea is a genuine workers' state in which all the people are completely liberated from exploitation and oppression. The workers, peasants, soldiers and intellectuals are the true masters of their destiny and are in a unique position to defend their interests."

It is for providing living proof that the despotism of globalism is not all powerful that the DPRK is lied about and threatened. Unlike the war-mongers of the globalist west, the DPRK has never invaded another country, seeking only the unification of its own territory in the 1950 war of liberation, which would have freed the south of Korea but for the interference of the USA - the very country which had created the lapdog south in 1945 as a part of their continuing war of aggression against the peoples of Asia.

The declaration that the DPRK will go to war if the USA chooses the path of war, is not a statement of aggression, but of resistance to aggression. The DPRK will not be bullied by the terrorists of the USA into surrendering the freedom and way of life the people of the DPRK hold dear.  We salute their resilience and stand with the DPRK should the enemies of humanity attack that nation.

Long Live the Democratic People's Republic of Korea!  May you continue to give inspiration to the world.  May you outlive your enemies and form a cornerstone of a free Socialist world in which the sickness of capitalism is swept away.

Party Statement on US attacks on Syria

Last year, SWPE commented on the election for President of the USA.  With Bernie Sanders out of the race, and with Jill Stein squeezed out by a system which ensures only a Democrat or Republican can win, the only candidates left with any chance of winning were Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.  There was no chance of a decent President coming from a choice between two such awful people, so our advise was for people to vote for the lesser of two evils.

There were issues of concern from the Trump camp, including the declaration of intent to end the provision of Health Care (Obamacare), although Trump spoke of replacing it with an alternative which would be more affordable, rather than simply scrapping it.  Obamacare remains in place and this broken promise stands as an early indicator of how his term in office has become - a series of u-turns on pledges; a continuation of the policies of the previous regime, directly against the wishes of the people who voted for him.

Domestic politics apart, the main reason we saw Trump as the lesser of two evils, was his declaration for peace.  The USA has long been a notorious agent of global corporate imperialism.  The USA has been the driving force behind the destruction of Serbia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia, the Sudan, the Ukraine and many other sovereign nations.  Trump spoke of ending this imperialist aggression; Clinton spoke of war with Russia.  We advised people to vote for Trump to avert the catastrophe of war for corporate interests, with profits being gained at the cost of human lives.

While Hillary Clinton was screaming hysterically for blood in the Middle East, Trump spoke of the need for the USA to mind its own business and not interfere in the internal problems of sovereign nations.  As has been seen by the War Crimes inflicted upon the Syrian Arab Republic this week by now President Trump, the only difference between the two candidates on this issue was that Clinton was more than happy to proclaim her blood lust, Trump chose to hide his.

Trump made a point of declaring that he believes Jerusalem must be recognised as the capital of Israel.  Jerusalem is a city in the occupied territory known internationally as the West Bank, to the Israelis as the twin provinces of Judea and Samaria, and to the Palestinians as home.  Trump's declaration is an affront to the people of Palestine, who were seeking a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestine problem, even being ready to give up the majority of their country by recognising Israel as a sovereign entity, in return for the recognition of the much smaller territories of Gaza and the West Bank as the sovereign nation of Palestine.  His toadying to global Zionism has encouraged the Zionist state to build more settlements in Palestine, pushing the people of that land deeper into despair and subjugation.

The Global Zionist agenda is for the creation of 'Greater Israel' on land stolen from the peoples of Palestine, Jordan, Egypt, the Lebanon, Iraq and Syria.  The Zionist States of Turkey and Saudi Arabia are working alongside Israel itself to achieve this goal, with the full military backing of their vassal, the USA, and the assistance of the Kurds who see the opportunity for the creation of a sovereign state of Kurdistan from the ruins of the nations smashed by the Zionist war machine.

The contrived wars of aggression against the free Arab Republic of Iraq, under Saddam Hussein were a part of the destabilisation of the Middle East for the strengthening of the Zionist centre of global operations.  It is no coincidence that the lying War Criminals, George 'w' Bush and Tony Blair used the propaganda of (chemical) Weapons of Mass Destruction being used by the government of Iraq against the Iraqi people to justify the invasion and destruction of Iraq, and now the equally deceitful Donald Trump is using the propaganda of chemical weapons being used by the government of Syria against 'rebels' (Terrorists) in that country.  In both cases, the propaganda is a complete fabrication.

There were no WMDs in Iraq, and the Sarin weapons in Syria which killed a handful of people during an air strike by the government against a terrorist controlled area, were weapons held by the Terrorists which were hit in the air-raid.  If the Syrian air force had not hit the Terrorists' store of chemical weapons, they would have been used against ordinary Syrians - not by the government, but by the Terrorists!  Trump has just launched an attack on the victims of global Zionist aggression, to defend the very people who were preparing to murder Syrian civilians with a stockpile of chemicals which was hit by a fortunate airstrike.

The criminal attack on the sovereign nation of Syria is a part of the drive to subjugate the entire Middle East to global capitalism, including the control of the monetary supply by the Zionist Rothschild banking mafia.  The Islamic State is just Al Qaeda renamed and redeployed as a fake Muslim operation to destabilise Muslim nations and create an image which justifies the deployment of the military of the West and Zionist states in order to confront it, until it is needed elsewhere for more destabilisation operations.  If Islamic State was really the anti-Semitic Islamic extremist entity it is purported to be, then why do its fighters get medical and military support from Israel?  Why also do they never attack Israel?  Why do they concentrate their attacks on Muslim countries and do everything they can to justify the dehumanisation of Muslims in general?  It doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to figure this one out.

Trump is just another stooge. He is the same as Clinton.  He is not the lesser of two evils. He is the equal of two evils.  Democracy is a sham. The solutions to the woes of the Working Class can only come through Revolution, not through Reformism from the ballot box, and certainly not from the presidency of a multi-millionaire oil-loving, Israel-worshipping liar.  The people of the USA have been lied to, and they are not the only victims of the lies - the greatest victims are the peoples of the Middle East who ae being murdered for the agenda of increasing Global Zionist Capitalist power.

So what is to be done?  We must make sure that no one in  military uniform is allowed to go unchallenged. We call for all our military men and women to mutiny rather than shed any blood for profit. The Revolution needs the support of our Military, and we need to support their refusal to fight for the Ruling Class.  We need to bring the Military into the Revolutionary fold, and to let them know that anyone who wears the insignia of NATO or who fights for the Capitalist cause against our brothers and sisters in any part of the world, declares him/herself an enemy of the People, and as an enemy combatant, with all that entails.
