Fidel Castro, leader of 1959 revolution, dies at 90

Castro's life and the Cuban Revolution

At the same time, the forces of capitalist reaction and imperialism will see Fidel Castro's death as an opportunity to drive for full capitalist restoration on the island.

ERC SUPPORTS ASUU'S WARNING STRIKE OVER NON-IMPLEMENTATION OF 2009 AGREEMENT

CALLS FOR DEMOCRATIC MANAGEMENT OF UNIVERSITIES

FOR A JOINT ACTION OF EDUCATION WORKERS AND STUDENTS

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is holding a week long warning strike that started on Wednesday, November 16, over the failure of the federal government to honour its aspects of the FGN-ASUU 2009 agreement. This agreement contains a commitment of government to upwardly fund education sector and pay outstanding wages of the academic staff. The Education Rights Campaign (ERC) fully supports the consistent struggle of ASUU for the implementation of this agreement. And we hold that the failure of Buhari government to uphold the terms of this agreement shows that there is no fundamental difference between Buhari and previous regimes that have reneged on this agreement and further eroded an already rotten education system.

ANC in Crisis

August local elections – a decisive turning point

Socialist mass workers party needed

South Africa's recent local government elections have changed the country's political landscape almost beyond recognition. They represent a decisive political turning point for post-apartheid SA. Despite remaining overwhelmingly dominant, the 8% decline in its vote, and the loss of Nelson Mandela Bay, Tshwane and Johannesburg hit the ANC like a defeat.
