Letter from the Editor-in-Chief

Several comrades and friends from Venezuela and abroad, with the best of intentions, suggested that we should celebrate the 3000th edition of Tribuna Popular, which had been scheduled several years ago to come out of the printing presses last August.

To all of them, and now also to the rest of our devoted readers, we wish to convey that, unfortunately, we have nothing to celebrate, because, after 70 years and five months during which we were able to print 2998 editions –including the 269 issued in clandestinity during the Pérez Jiménez dictatorship and the armed struggle of the 1960s–, the printing of the historic press organ of the Central Committee of Communist Party of Venezuela (PCV) has been interrupted, and not by our decision or will.

The National Political Commission of the Communist Party of Brazil (PCdoB) issued a statement on October 8th, 2018, regarding the presidential elections. According to the statement, the second round of the presidential elections accomplishes the aspiration of the majority of Brazilians to have more time to make the definitive choice of their presidential candidacy. The statement underlined that the first round was ‘a setback to Jair Bolsonaro's fascist candidacy supported by mainstream media, large economic and financial groups, by sectors of state corporations .... including illegal actions, such as a lot of fake news that he would win in the first round’. Against Bolsonaro, the candidates Fernando Haddad as president and Manuela D'Ávila as deputy supported by previous president and Workers' Party (PT) leader Luiz Inácio Lula imprisoned by the reactionary forces in Brazil achieved to get almost 30% in the first round. PCdoB declared its support for the candidacy of Fernando Haddad ‘to form a democratic front, as broad as possible, based on the unity of the left’.

The hugely popular Lula, Brazil’s president from 2003 until 2011, has been imprisoned since April on charges that his supporters say are trumped up and politically motivated. Judges ruled that, as a prisoner, he was not allowed to stand in This Sunday’s presidential election, which is being closely contested between Lula’s stand-in Fernando Haddad and the far-right populist Jair Bolsonaro.
