SFs formand Annette Wilhelmsen bebuder sin afgang som formand, ekstraordinært landsmøde og at SF går fra Thorning-Schmidts S-R-SF-regering.

Begrundelsen har baggrund i partiets kritiske holdning til salget af 19% aktier i DONG, som medførte, at flere markante forlod ledelsen af Folketingsgruppen og partiet. Og som medfører, at flere ministre forlader SF. Astrid Krag til Socialdemokraterne og Ida Auken til Det Radikale Venstre.

Efter at opstanden “Euromaidan” i Ukraine førte til indsættelse af en overgangsregering 21. februar og præsident Viktor Janukovitjs flugt, bliver der dannet en udbryderregering på Krim. Russiske soldater tager derefter kontrol over Krim-halvøens militære forlægninger, lufthavne og lokalparlamentets bygning.
Opstanden i Ukraine startede 21. november 2013, se Tidslinjen for links.

På dansk:

Ukraine – i Vesten og i virkelighedens verden. Af Jens Jørgen Nielsen (Kritisk Debat, 15. april 2015). “Stadig mere tyder på, at ’det ukrainske projekt’ ikke vil lykkes. For det første står det ret klart, at den ’ukrainske revolution’ ikke udgjorde et opgør med oligark-strukturen …”

Syndikalister i Ukraine: Den fascistiske fare er størst i de russisk besatte områder. Af Asbjørn Nielsen og Maja Maria Christensen (Modkraft.dk/Kontradoxa, 11. marts 2015). Interview med aktivister fra organisationen Autonomous Workers Union.

Ukraine-krisen og en ny verdensorden? Af Jens Jørgen Nielsen (Kritisk Debat, 15. oktober 2014). “Krisen i Ukraine har ikke bare en regional betydning. De politiske og økonomiske følgevirkninger rækker langt ud i fremtiden og får konsekvenser for hele verden, selvfølgelig ikke mindst for EU.”

Ukranie-konflikten: At skyde sig selv i foden. Af Jens Jørgen Nielsen (Kritisk Debat, 15. august 2014). “De sociale forhold i Ukraine er katastrofale, og landet er dybt splittet af en borgerkrig. Udviklingen er ikke til gavn for Europa.”

Ukraine: Mellem pest og kolera – er der en udvej? Af Joanne Landy (Socialistisk Information, 22. juli 2014). “Regeringerne i USA og Rusland forsøger at tilpasse situationen i Ukraine til deres egne interesser, ikke til gavn for det ukrainske folk. Ukraine har længe lidt under dominansen fra Moskva, under de russiske zarer og senere i Sovjetunionen, som det mest rædselsvækkende, under Stalin.”

Økonomiske konsekvenser af konflikten i Ukraine – et overblik. Af Nina Holst (RIKO, 22. april 2014). “For at bevæge sig i retning mod at klare sig selv økonomisk, har Ukraine først og fremmest behov for at skabe politisk stabilitet og troværdige institutioner. Der er behov for at forny samfundsstrukturer og institutioner, hvis landet skal være en del af den globale økonomi.”

Ukraine og vestens hykleri. Af Jens Jørgen Nielsen (Kritisk Debat, 15. april 2014). “Jeg har mulighed for at følge med i både vestlig og russisk mediedækning af hele Ukraine-problematikken. Der er tale om to helt forskellige fortællinger, narrativer, som det hedder lidt mere akademisk.”

Ruslands anneksion af Krim: hvilke konsekvenser for internationale relationer? Af Francesco Merli (Revolution, 24. marts 2014). “Putins tale understreger den stigende frustration hos den herskende klasse i Rusland, mod USA’s konstante indblanding i hvad de anser som deres naturlige indflydelsessfære.”

Ukraine: ”Venstrefløjen har ikke mere end 1.000 aktivister …” (Autonom Infoservice, 20. marts 2014). Interview med sociologen Volodimyr Ischtschenko om venstrefløjens fremtid i Ukraine.”

Solidaritet vil redde Ukraine fra intervention (Socialistisk Information, 8. marts 2014). “Den socialistiske sammenslutning ‘Venstreoppositionen’ fremlægger sin vurdering af den russiske agression i Krim og de ukrainske nationalisters destruktive rolle.”

Storpolitiken, Ukraine og den danske mediepropaganda. Af Curt Sørensen (Modkraft.dk/Blog, 6. marts 2014). “Jeg skal love for at Jakob Lindbloms – i øvrigt fortræffelige – artikel om udviklingen i og omkring Ukraine har fremkaldt betydelig ophidselse og en del vrede indlæg … Jeg skal blot i al stilfærdighed i forlængelse af Jakobs indlæg fremhæve den storpolitiske indramning.”

EU’s hykleri i Ukraine. Af Jacob Lindblom (Modkraft.dk/Blog, 5. marts 2014). “For at forstå det ukrainske galehus, så kræver det lidt historie.”

In English:

Explaining Ukraine’s second Maidan. By Maciej Bancarzewski (International Socialism, Issue 158, Spring 2018). Review of Chris Kaspar de Ploeg, Ukraine in the Crossfire (Clarity Press, 2017, 353 p.): “The book is a critical left wing antidote to the media bias and blackout on Ukrainian current affairs.”

A socialist case for Ukraine (Socialist Review, Issue 400, March 2015). “On the anniversary of the fall of Ukrainian President Yanukovych, which marked the onset of the current conflict, Rob Ferguson and Tomas Tengely-Evans interview Volodymyr Ishchenko in Kiev.”

Leftists, Liberals, and Ukraine: A tale of double standards. By Stephen Velychenko (Krytyka, March 2015). Review of Stephen Lendman (ed.), Flashpoint Ukraine: How the US Drive for Hegemony Risks World War III (Clarity Press, 2014): “Pro-Kremlin leftists and liberals seem to think Putin’s Russian neoliberal capitalism preferable to Anglo-American and European neoliberal capitalism and tolerate his imperialist drive to maintain Russian hegemony if not full control over Ukraine.”

The oligarchic rebellion in the Donbas. By Zbigniew Marcin Kowalewski (International Viewpoint, Issue 480, January 2015). “In the geopolitics of domination of Russian imperialism in Ukraine and all along the western extent of the “Russian World” – conceived in the monarchist-orthodox manner and that of the Black Hundreds and White Guards – the Donbas is extremely important.”

Russian imperialism today. By Zbigniew Marcin Kowalewski (Ukraine Solidarity Campaign, November 27, 2014). “Over the centuries, until the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the peoples who were conquered and annexed by Russia suffered three successive forms of Russian imperialist domination.”

Ukraine: No siding with nationalists (Weekly Worker, Issue 1025, 11 September 2014). “Eddie Ford argues that working class political independence cannot be built by backing the pawns of imperialism.”

Ukraine: imperialism, war and the left. By Rob Ferguson (International Socialism, Issue 144, Autumn 2014). “A debate has emerged on the left over how to respond to Russia’s role in the conflict. Behind these debates lie differences in approach to the understanding of imperialism in general and, among Marxists, how we should apply our understanding of the classic theory of imperialism developed by revolutionaries in the early 20th century.”

Imperial delusions. By Alex Callinicos (International Socialism, Issue 142, Spring 2014). “The reaction of the Western left to this enormous crisis has been, to put it mildly, confused.

A CounterPunch special report: The Ukraine imbroglio and the decline of the American Empire. By Arno J. Mayer (April 18-20, 2014). “It might also be salutary to note that this standoff on Ukraine-Crimea is taking place in the unending afterglow of the Second Cold War and at a time when the sun is beginning to set on the American Empire as a new international system of multiple great powers emerges.”

Ukraine between ‘Popular uprising for democracy’ and ‘Fascist putsch’. By David Mandel (MR Online, 12 March 2014). “In sum, although one cannot speak of a “fascist putsch,” fascists forces have emerged from the events with increased strengthen and legitimacy.”

The threat of war hangs over Ukraine (SocialistWorker.org, March 3, 2014). “Alan Maass and Lee Sustar provide the background for understanding Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine–and inter-imperialist rivalries that are coming to a head.”

Putin raises the stakes in imperialist Crimea crisis. By Alex Callinicos (Socialist Worker, Issue 2392, 3 March 2014). “Putin is engaging in an inter-imperialist power play. He is betting on the weakness of his rivals. He’s probably right about this.”

I byen Ferguson (Missouri, USA) blir 18-årige Michael Brown dræbt af politibetjenten Darren Wilson. Drabet førte til omfattende protester, og yderligere politibrutalitet over for protesterne. #BlackLivesMatter gik fra sociale medier til at være en bevæglse på gaden og med lokalafdelinger.
Senere på året, 24. november 2014, afgjorde en storjury, at der ikke var grundlag for at rejse tiltale mod den politimand, der skød Michael Brown. Afgørelsen gav anledning til utilfredshed, og der udbrød atter protester.

Belejringen af den kurdiske by Kobane i det nordlige Syrien indledes af Islamisk Stat.

Se:

Tiden er kommet. Af Søren Berggreen Toft og Mads Staghøj (Information.dk, 28. marts 2015). Longread (4 kapitler): “Da Kobane blev belejret af Islamisk Stat, rejste kurdere i Danmark og Europa sig og samledes om kærligheden til den fængslede leder Abdullah Öcalan.” Kræver abonnement.

Kobane holder stadig stand. Af Joakim Medin (Information.dk, 6. januar 2015). “Information har besøgt den krigshærgede by og dens socialistisk inspirerede modstandsbevægelse.”

Kobanes demokratiske erfaring kan blive model for andre regioner (Modkraft.dk/Kontradoxa, 18. november 2014). “Interview med professor Karman Matin fra Sussex Universitet om baggrunden for konflikten mellem kurdere og ISIS i Mellemøsten.”

Kobane, kurdernes kamp og farerne i horisonten. Af Jelle Bruinsma (Modkraft.dk/Kontradoxa, 28. oktober 2014). Oversat fra Roar Magazine: “Efter Islamisk Stat er blevet drevet ud af Kobanê, lurer faren for, at USA udøver imperiale særrettigheder og truer kurdiske ambitioner om demokratisk autonomi.”

Kurdere gribes af håb og fortvivlelse, mens Kobane fortsat yder modstand (Modkraft.dk/Kontradoxa, 16. oktober 2014). Oversat fra Roar Magazine: “Iskender Doğu rapporterer fra Kurdistan, mens kampfly flyver over hovedet og der er voldsomme sammenstød mellem tyrkisk politi og kurdiske demonstranter.”

En stemme fra Kobane: interview med en kurdisk fighter (Autonom Infoservice, 8. oktober 2014). “I et telefon-interview fortæller Asia Abdullah om den dramatiske situation i den hårdt omkæmpede kurdiske enklave Kobanê.”

Examing the revolution in Rojava. By Emma Wilde Botta (International Socialist Review, Issue 108, Spring 2018). Review of Michael Knapp, Anja Flach and Ercan Ayboga,
Revolution in Rojava: Democratic Autonomy and Women’s Liberation in Syrian Kurdistan (Pluto Press, 2016, 272 p.): “… one of the first full-length books to address the emergence of Rojava, an autonomous region in northern Syria that has been heralded by many as a socialist and feminist model for social change.”

The AKP, the Kurds and the siege of Kobane. By Uraz Aydin (International Viewpoint, Issue 480, January 2015). “There is an urgent need for the revolutionary left, despite its weakness, to give its full support to the struggle of the Kurdish people whatever the criticisms of its leadership.”

The false friends of Kobane. By Errol Babacan and Murat Cakir (Jacobin, January 6, 2015). “The significance of the struggle in Kobanê cannot be overstated. But real international solidarity won’t come in the form of military intervention.”

The results of the Kobane war; so far. By Amed Dicle (International Viewpoint, Issue 477, October 2014). “However, Kobane never fell; it resisted, and is still resisting. This resistance is now the main agenda of not only the Kurds and the Middle East, but the whole world.”

Kobane, the Kurds and the Syrian revolution (SocialistWorker.org, October 15, 2014). Svensk udgave på Marxistarkiv.se (pdf). “Joseph Daher analyzes the forces at play in this article for his blog Syria Freedom Forever and makes the case that the Kurdish struggle for self-determination and the Syrian revolution against the Assad dictatorship share a common destiny.”

Behind the Kobane tragedy: The Kurdish political movement and Turkey. By Özlem İlyas Tolunay (New Politics, October 14, 2014). “The Kurdish political movement is not monolithic. There are moderate Islamists, leftist and nationalists in it and this reality has a significant effect on their policies.”

Why is the world ignoring the revolutionary Kurds in Syria? By David Graeber (The Guardian, October 8, 2014). “Amid the Syrian warzone a democratic experiment is being stamped into the ground by Isis. That the wider world is unaware is a scandal.”
