The editorial of the new director of Marx21.it

of Marco Pondrelli (new director of marx21.it)

My adventure as director of this site begins today. My first thought and my first thanks go to my friend and comrade Mauro Gemma, whom I thank for the beautiful words he said about me. I thank him, as so many have done in recent days, for the work he has done over the past 10 years: a job guided by professionalism and passion. I know I will not be up to your example, but I hope to be able to put all my energy into this work.

Directing a site that refers to Karl Marx is currently not at all easy. The Left in all its forms (communist, radical, reformist...) has never been so weak. Weakness that is, rather than electoral, cultural.

As of 1st July a new director of Marx21.it. Greeting from the outgoing director

E-mail Stampa PDF

of Mauro Gemma (former director of Marx21.it)

After more than ten years of almost daily commitment as director, since 2008 of lernesto.it, and since 2011 of Marx21.it, since July 1, while determined to continue to work with undiminished passion at the work of a site to which I dedicated an important part of my long political militancy, the time has come for me to hand over to a new direction.

The responsibility for the political management of the site will be assumed by comrade Marco Pondrelli, that the readers who follow with assiduity our site and are involved in its work of elaboration and documentation, already know for the political and cultural preparation and its active and competent contribution to our portal. I am sure that the new management of the site will be able to ensure the continuity of its presence in the network and to strengthen the quality of its journalistic offer.

Read the magazine's main abstracts

Since several years, Chinese Communists have intensified an activity aimed at making their positions and their elaborations better known to the Communists, Marxists and anti-imperialists of all the world, both on the processes underway in China along the path of “socialism with Chinese characteristics”, as well as on the changes in the world framework and on the strategies of the international workers’ movement and of the anti-imperialist struggles and resistance.

National sovereignty and left-wing politics

Francesco Maringiò

We receive this article from Comrade Francesco Maringiò and we gladly publish it as a useful contribution to the discussion on "Communists and the national question".

Sergio Fabbrini's editorial [Italia e Ue, il momento delle scelte strategiche, il Sole24Ore, p.1, 11/03/2018] in the Confindustria (Union of Industrial Owners) newspaper is very interesting. Starting from the analysis of the vote that identifies who won the elections (and for what main reason): "last Sunday, more than half of the Italian electorate, [gave] the vote to two parties (5 Stars Movement and The League) that had a (declaredly) sovereignist program.

The Russian people has spoken!

E-mail Stampa PDF

by Mauro Gemma (director of Marx21.it)

The Russian people has spoken, and his voice has resounded powerful.

The Russian people, with their vote, wanted to confirm their confidence in a line of strenuous defence of its homeland, which is currently the target of a massive campaign conducted by Western governments, political forces of different inspiration and mass media which are completely subservient to a war logic of imperialism. This is the true sense of the vote, as Putin himself acknowledged.

A look on the elections of 4th March

E-mail Stampa PDF

Marco Pondrelli for Marx21.it

This article by Comrade Marco Pondrelli is the first of a series of contributions that Marx21.it will dedicate to elections and other central themes of the political debate, with the aim of providing a key reading and a non-conjunctural contribution to the debate on the left.

What were the camps on the ground in these elections? Confindustria's [1] newspaper gave the answer: Sergio Fabbrini in two editors (14th and 21st January) appeared on' il Sole 24 Ore' explained that in Italy Europeists and Souverainists were confronted. Two sides transversal to the different sides and individual parties, but with clearly defined characteristics. On the one hand, there was European integration and, as Panebianco (Universitary Professor and editorialist of Corriere della Sera) often reminds us from the columns of the' Corriere della Sera' (Conservative newspaper), NATO, on the other hand, national sovereignty.
