UN assembly approves resolution granting Palestine new rights and reviving its UN membership bid
The resolution “determines” that a state of Palestine is qualified for membership — dropping the original language that in the General Assembly’s judgment it is “a peace-loving state.” It therefore recommends that the Security Council reconsider its request “favorably.”

PKK Internationalists in the Palestinian Resistance
“On June 6, 1982, ten PKK militants fell while fighting shoulder on shoulder with the Palestinian resistance in Lebanon in the war against the Israeli invasion. They fell as internationalists. Today, on the occasion of the anniversary, we publish stories of these ten Kurdish partisans in resistance and commemoration of the fallen Internationalists of the PKK. Their story “Heroes of the Castle Arnun” was first published in the magazine Serxwebun, in Kurdish and Turkish and in the German solidarity magazine “Kurdistan Report” in August 1984.

CP (Switzerland), Against Zionist repression in Swiss academies!
The Communist Party (Switzerland) expresses its solidarity with Polyquity and condemns the unilateral repressive decision by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) to suspend this feminist organization! The crime? Having dared to organize the conference "Femonationalism, colonialism and feminism: response from the Global South", an event which "revisited the racist, nationalist and colonialist rhetoric present in certain feminist movements". Among the arguments touched upon, naturally, was Palestine's national liberation struggle, and in particular the events in Gaza over the last eight months. An important case both for its contemporaneity and for the different response of the various feminist movements. While some of these movements have rigorously and consistently supported the liberation struggle of the Palestinian people in an anti-colonial and class-based spirit, others, representing a Western and "liberal" feminism, have remained silent or defended the atrocities of the Zionist entity.

EC: Abdicating its Responsibilities
ELECTIONS to half the seats in the Lok Sabha have been completed with the third phase of polling being over on May 7. This has provided enough experience and time to assess how the Election Commission (EC) has gone about superintending the conduct of a free and fair poll. The verdict in this matter can only be that it has failed badly. All the apprehensions about the work of the EC, two of whose commissioners were appointed just three days before the announcement of the election schedule, are proving to be true. The EC has not discharged its elementary responsibility of enforcement of the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) and ensuring a level playing field for all parties. Contrary to the self-satisfactory statement issued by the EC about its record on enforcement of MCC during the first month since the announcement of elections on March 16, the period saw the EC abdicating its responsibilities.

All farmers in current day fully capitalist world are parasitic scum, many of whom are rural bourgeois and themselves employ wage-labor in their fields. The sooner they get completely immiserated and their assets razed to the ground, the better for the proletariat.
