West Papua used to be part of the Dutch East Indies. After World War II, the Dutch Empire became the new nation of Indonesia. But the Dutch argued that West Papua had never been part of Indonesia and had an entirely different culture and history. West Papua declared independence on 1st December 1961 - but the Indonesian army invaded three months later. Although the international community intervened, Western governments, led by the USA, chose to appease Indonesia and accept its occupation rather than risk a political crisis that might encourage the spread of communism in South East Asia. In 1969, the UN presided over a referendum on independence that was clearly a sham. The Indonesian occupiers announced that the Papuans were too ‘backward’ to cope with democracy, and 1026 ‘representative’ Papuans were rounded up and forced at gunpoint to vote to join Indonesia. This was called, ironically, the 'Act of Free Choice’.

Since its annexation the people of West Papua have suffered constant misery. Over 500,000 people have died as a direct result of the Indonesian occupation. Much of their land has been taken by the state and given to national and multinational companies for mining, logging or oil extraction. Non-violent dissent has been criminalised: anyone who calls for independence, raises the Papuan flag or publicly questions the legitimacy of Indonesian rule can be imprisoned. Tens of thousands of Indonesian soldiers are stationed in West Papua, and regularly torture, rape and murder Papuan leaders, activists and civilians.

West Papua is a closed society. All foreign journalists are banned. Human rights groups, lawyers, foreign politicians and even tourists are either banned from entering Papua or restricted to small areas where they are closely monitored by the police. As a result, the world hears little about the horror that goes on there day after day. The Papuans have been denied one of the fundamental rights in the UN International Charter of Human Rights - ‘self-determination’, the right to choose their own government and national status. Every representative Papuan organisation is now calling for a re-run of the 1969 ‘Act of Free Choice’ – this time as a genuine referendum on independence, in which all Papuans get the chance to vote.

I know of two radical unions that have presence in greater jakarta, KASBI and KPBI, former is more militant and is not in the new labour party, latter is in the new labour party along with unfortunately the two large limp-ass lib union kspsi and kpsi. If you are a student, there is the student union affiliated with KASBI called SEMPRO or serikat mahasiswa progresif, which idk how organised they are, I might contact them later if I got the chance. If youre an anarchist, there is no anarcho-syndicalist unions that i know of, anarchist presence is mostly street anarchist. >>1256080 is a good advice.

House votes to avert rail strike, impose deal on unions
The U.S. House moved urgently to head off the looming nationwide rail strike on Wednesday, passing a bill that would bind companies and workers to a proposed settlement that was reached in September but rejected by some of the 12 unions involved. The measure passed by a vote of 290-137 and now heads to the Senate. If approved there, it will be signed by President Joe Biden, who urged the Senate to act swiftly. … House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded to concern by adding a second vote Wednesday that would add seven days of paid sick leave per year for rail workers covered under the agreement. However, it will take effect only if the Senate goes along and passes both measures.

Health workers in Greece protest casualization of doctors in public hospitals
Doctors and other staff at public hospitals across Greece have intensified protests against a bill proposed by the conservative New Democracy (ND)-led government to abolish full-time exclusive employment of doctors in public hospitals. Unions, including the Federation of Hospital Doctors of Greece (OENGE) and the Panhellenic Federation of Public Hospital Workers (POEDIN), went for strikes on November 28 and 29 and organized a protest demonstration in front of the Greek parliament and the Ministry of Health.

Higher food prices worsen hunger crisis this holiday season
A September report by the Urban Institute estimated that about 1 in 5 adults experienced household food insecurity last summer, about the same as during the first year of the pandemic but a sharp increase from the spring of 2021. Black and Hispanic adults reported higher rates of food insecurity than their white counterparts, according to the report. … The government estimates food prices will be up 9.5% to 10.5% this year. And that’s squeezing the budgets of many Americans and the food banks that have helped them, especially with the expiration of the massive flow of pandemic relief aid.

Fed's Powell cites top barrier to taming inflation — workers' wages
Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell on Wednesday said the biggest remaining barrier to taming inflation is the shortage of workers, which is giving Americans greater clout to seek higher pay. Powell also again signaled that the Fed will begin raising interest rates in smaller increments, but underscored that significantly higher borrowing costs still lie ahead. “To be clear, strong wage growth is a good thing,” he said. “But for wage growth to be sustainable, it needs to be consistent with 2 percent inflation.” That will require reducing demand for labor by slowing the economy, he said.

Idea, instead of forcing a deal with them, grab a tiny slice of what you're giving for free to the Ukranian failed state and give it to the rail workers in exchange to keep working while the deal is settled.

Hype About Democrats Passing the Torch: Don’t Get Fooled Again
Pelosi quickly endorsed Rep. Hakeem Jeffries to replace her as leader. NBC News offered the common media frame: “Pelosi made history as the first female speaker of the House, while Jeffries, the current Democratic Caucus chairman, would become the first Black leader of a congressional caucus and highest-ranking Black lawmaker on Capitol Hill.” You can count on much of the mass media to shower the 52-year-old Jeffries with accolades, largely supplied by fellow Democrats. But, overall, a closer look reveals a problematic record. Early on, before becoming a New York state legislator, Jeffries worked for years as a corporate lawyer. In Congress – while he has taken a few progressive positions like cosponsoring Medicare for All and voting to cut 10 percent of the military budget – his emphasis has been in sync with the party establishment. “I’m a Black progressive Democrat concerned with addressing racial and social and economic injustice with the fierce urgency of now,” Jeffries told The Atlantic in August 2021. But during the same interview, Jeffries added: “There will never be a moment where I bend the knee to hard-left democratic socialism.” (Ironically, Jeffries was echoing the “fierce urgency of now” phrase from Martin Luther King Jr., who was a democratic socialist.) Jeffries likes to jab leftward. In 2016, he called Bernie Sanders a “gun-loving socialist with zero foreign-policy experience.” A 2018 profile in The Economist – titled “High Hopes for Hakeem Jeffries” – concluded that he “is nearly as moderate as a safe-seat Democrat gets.” The article pointed out: “Though he supports the principle of universal healthcare coverage, he speaks of ‘the importance of market forces and getting things done in a responsible fashion.’ Quoting Ronald Reagan approvingly, he suggests this means promoting a flourishing private sector outside the ‘legitimate functions’ of government.”

What's are the class interests of the rising Etnocacerista movement in my country Peru?

Usually the nationalist/fashoid movements have a petit bourgeois/middle class base while getting funded by the national bourgeoisie against big foreign finance capital
The etnocacerista movement has a peasant/lumpenproletariat base and gets little to no funding (at least that I know about) from the national bourgeoisie

Rundown about the etnocacerista ideology:
>nationalization and state control of privatized national resources (gas, copper mines, etc)
>xenophobic discourse
>brushes off class analysis because it was created in europe thus doesn't apply to an 'andean' nation
>'not capitalist nor socialist' bullshit economic discourse

Everything points to the usual fashoid/nationalist shit but what puzzles me is that the bourgeoisie and urbanites are shitting their pants about it which is atypical

> The German “Lefts” consider that, as far as they are concerned, the reply to this question is an unqualified negative. In their opinion, declamations and angry outcries (such as uttered by K. Horner in a particularly “solid” and particularly stupid manner) against “reactionary” and “counter-revolutionary” trade unions are sufficient “proof” that it is unnecessary and even inexcusable for revolutionaries and Communists to work in yellow, social-chauvinist, compromising and counter-revolutionary trade unions of the Legien type.

However firmly the German “Lefts” may be convinced of the revolutionism of such tactics, the latter are in fact fundamentally wrong, and contain nothing but empty phrases.

Germany would maintain their insane tech superiority without all the jews and socialists leaving and have better arms industry without the retarded semi-privatized system they had under nazis.
If the KPD was even a little competent they would have avoided war for a couple years to consolidate the german economy, bringing it to its full potential by brokering a good trade agreement with the USSR and constructed an decent army, Thälmann and Stalin would be able to overrun all of Europe, even britain, in the mid 1930s, causing a partial world revolution in the rest of the world.

After defeating Japan, the rest of the capitalists would consolidate under the US, that would devolve into insane dystopian capitalism as most of the third world would become protected from imperialism, making them unable to maintain decent living conditions even in the imperial core.

Even if the german communists are completely retarded and lose a civil war or get overun by their neighbors, then the german invasion would still be avoided and the Soviet Economy would become the biggest in the world in the 60s.

As Soviets approached Warsaw in that failed war closer and closer, German communists' situation was getting better and better as both porkies were willing to concede more and workers were having more faith in the cause.

>It’s boring at this point to complain about the look of new apartment buildings, hideous as they may be, to the point that they’ve actually started getting pushback here and there from idiots bold enough [https://www.archdaily.com/978264/in-praise-of-5-over-1-buildings] to claim that they’re Actually Fine because they offer cost-effective density or whatever, which is probably the nadir of architectural functionalism. But I digress. Anyway we’re talking about buildings like this, basically, called “podium buildings” or “5-over-1s” due to the fact that they typically have a structural organization wherein the first floor is a poured concrete slab with common stick-built wood frame construction overhead.

>The stick-built construction is crucial because, being more or less standardized, the amount of labor-hours spent on site is cut down to the minimum possible and there is almost zero need for machinery or equipment other than hand tools (which are almost always supplied by the worker themselves). Combine these features with the fact that, in the Euro-American context at least, there is extraordinarily low union density (12.7%) [https://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/union2.pdf] in private sector residential construction and thus low wages and bargaining power, we may assume that the wage bill for construction firms is already shaved down to the absolute minimum. Thus the strategy for the expansion of a firm’s individual profit consists the reduction of absolute labor time on site (while, of course, extending shifts and eliminating breaks as needed) by employing the most efficient “best practices” copied from the regulating capitals within the industry. But where a manufacturing capital may seek efficiencies by modifying its own manufacturing process, upgrading machinery, etc. a construction capital seeks to “offload” any and all labor hours by moving labor hours off site and entirely out of the industry altogether, into the manufacturing sector.
