ARGENTINAZO: A NEW STAGE OF THE WORLD REVOLUTION
the impact of the world capitalist crisis and a decade of social
struggles, the Argentinean popular masses opened a new stage in the
development of the world socialist revolution with their rebellion in
the historic days of December 2001.
capitalist economy of the country is in ruins; the bourgeois political
system as a whole is in shambles and the question of political power
itself is posed. The radicalization deepens and the
"interim" pseudo-solutions of the ruling class fail.
Starting from the battle cry "Fuera De la Rua - Cavallo"
("Out with De la Rua and Carvallo"), the Argentinean people
now is demanding "Que se vayan todos!" ("Out With Them
All!"). The rejection of the corrupt system of the bankers and of
the stooges of the IMF is total. The issue of an alternative political
and social power is posed point blank.
working class plays the leading role in the upsurge of the masses and
is the only social force able to Argentina out of the crisis by
re-organizing from bottom to top the country on new social bases.
Partido Obrero, the Trotskyist Party of the vanguard of the
proletariat in Argentina is in the forefront of the revolutionary
struggle. Its program shows clearly the way out:
Cancellation of the foreign debt
Nationalization of the banking system and re-nationalization of the
The capitalists have to pay for the crisis. Nationalize the companies
that fire workers. Jobs for everybody!
Popular Assemblies in every neighborhood and district to organize the
distribution of food and to fight back the economic disorganization
caused by the government and the capitalists
For a national workers and popular mobilization to overthrow the whole
corrupt and bankrupt political and social regime and replace it by a
sovereign Constituent Assembly in the provinces and nationally.
Down with the capitalist government of the usurpers and IMF stooges!
For a workers government based on the Popular Assemblies!
IMF brigands and Yanqui imperialists out! For the socialist unity of
initial steps of the Argentinean Revolution have already had a huge
impact, not only on the world economic crisis of capitalism, but also
on the working class and the oppressed masses all over the world.
Scenes reminiscent of the assault on the Winter Palace in October 1917
are a source of inspiration for the revolutionary struggle for new
Octobers, in conditions of a Great Recession ravaging all the
capitalist countries, both in the imperialist centers and in the
semi-colonial periphery. From the "people of Seattle and Genoa"
in America and Europe to the Palestinian Intifada and the oppressed
peoples resisting imperialist barbarism and war in Central Asia and
the Middle East, from the Balkans and Russia to Latin America and
Africa, all the exploited and oppressed, all the fighters for social
and national emancipation can learn from the Argentine events. They
can see the future in the revolutionary mirror of Argentina.
issue a call to all the workers and popular organizations
internationally, to all the fighters for freedom and social justice,
to all the revolutionaries, to organize everywhere acts of class
solidarity with the Argentinean workers, pickets in front of the
Argentinean embassies, etc. We call on them to unite and fight on the
same revolutionary road, for the overthrow of the
imperialist-capitalist yoke, for world Socialism.
address our call to all vanguard fighters in the working class and the
class struggle Left: it is time NOW to move boldly forwards to forge
the indispensable instrument for the socialist revolution, the workers
For the Immediate Refoundation of the Fourth International!
Long Live the Revolutionary Popular Rebellion in Argentina!
Forward to the World socialist Revolution!
