The Grand Scheme

I see through your eyes
And I see through your brain
Like I see through the water
That runs down my drain
Bob Dylan, Masters of War

In order to demystify the post-September 11 situation it is helpful to briefly touch on the two basic claims of the warmongers which were bolstered by the tragedy of the attacks.

Marxist Theory and History: 

An international initiative

By Martin Thomas

Several socialist groups, meeting in Paris on 18 June, agreed on the project of an international demonstration, some time in the coming months, in support of the workers’ movement in Iraq.

The idea is to have simultaneous demonstrations in many cities — Paris, Warsaw, Sydney, London... — on the slogans: “Against the occupation, against the Islamists, for workers’ rights, for a socialist republic”.

Socialist links

The AWL draws on the “Third Camp” tradition in revolutionary socialism, stemming from the ideas of Leon Trotsky, and developed after Trotsky’s death by people such as Max Shachtman and Hal Draper.

We seek to link up with socialists in other countries who refer to the same “Third Camp” tradition, or share to some degree the same essential conclusion — independent working-class struggle rather than identification with an umbrella “anti-imperialist camp”.

John Percy, 1946-2015: "more careful, more interested"

Author: 

Martin Thomas

John Percy, one of the founders of the modern Trotskyist movement in Australia, died on 19 August 2015, aged 69, after many years of ill-health.

Bob Gould, an Australian Trotskyist who often polemicised with John, nevertheless described him as "more careful, more interested in basic Marxism" than the new leaders of the group which John had long led (the DSP) who expelled him in 2008. One of my memories of John, from a visit to the Sydney office of the DSP in 2001, tells me why.

John Percy, one of the founders of the modern Trotskyist movement in Australia, died on 19 August 2015.
