July 25, 2016 | There has been throughout this election endless discussion of how trade deals like NAFTA have hurt Americans and nothing about what the treaties and trade deals that the U.S. has imposed have done—whole economies have been dominated, plundered and gutted by the very same powerful interests dictating what is being discussed in these elections. This is pointing people in the entirely wrong direction and distorting the character of the problem—and offering NO solution.

Want to understand why waves of refugees are streaming across borders and what this has to do with a worldwide system of exploitation and oppression? The following are some of revcom.us/Revolution’s recent coverage.

The 2016 U.S. Election: A Possible Repeat of the 1964 Election?

Rodrigue Tremblay, June 28 2016

The way this 2016 election campaign is unfolding, there is a good chance that it could be a repeat of the 1964 U.S. election. In both instances, a Democratic presidential candidate is facing a flawed and frightening Republican presidential candidate

“There must be a prompt, independent, and transparent investigation to determine what happened, who was responsible, and how to avoid further needless loss of civilian life. Anyone responsible for violations of international humanitarian law must be brought to justice and victims and their families should receive full reparation,” said Magdalena Mughrabi, the interim deputy director of the Middle East and North Africa program for Amnesty International.

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/evergreenedigest.org/files/Turkey%20and%20the%20Middle%20East.jpgJuly 18, 2016 | On July 15 and 16, sections of the Turkish military attempted a coup d'état to depose the Islamist government of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan (pronounced ERR-owan). The Turkish Parliament and the Presidential Palace were bombed and tanks deployed outside major airports. Turkey is a critical U.S. ally in the Middle East, and for 24 hours, who was in charge of ruling the country was up in the air.

At this writing, Erdoğan’s government claims to be back in control of the country—and is moving to tighten its rule. Thousands have been arrested, and 2,700 judges dismissed, as Erdoğan and his party tighten their grip on power. Both sides in the coup attempt are thoroughly reactionary—representing different approaches and forms of enforcing exploitation and oppression.

Thu Jun 23, 2016 | Thousands of demonstrators marched under massive police surveillance in Paris on Thursday to try to force the government to drop its labor reforms but President Francois Hollande said he would pursue the plan "to the finishing line".

Protesters - whose numbers were put at 20,000 by police but three times that many by organizers - chanted "Scrap, scrap, the labor reform!" as they marched around the capital's Place de la Bastille square, hemmed in by large numbers of riot police.
