The Palestinian Authority was defiant on Monday, September 10, despite the continuing spate of US imperialistic threats and measures, the latest being the closing of the offices of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in Washington DC.

In his first major public address since becoming National Security Advisor to President Donald Trump, John Bolton officially announced on Monday the closing of the PLO office in his country’s capital, citing failure of the Palestinians to take steps “to advance the start of direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel.” Bolton said the “PLO leadership has condemned a US peace plan they have not yet seen and has refused to engage with the US government with respect to peace efforts and otherwise.” Bolton’s announcement also cited concern over Palestinians going to the International Criminal Court (ICC) to prosecute Israeli officials over its war crimes against the Palestinian people.

The Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL) from the United States expressed its full solidarity with the National Prison Strike from Aug. 21 to Sept. 9.

Some news is hard to believe, so unreal they look like. The immigratory issue in United States and Europe traditionally call attention, but the recent tragedy in US board, in which kids were separated from their parents, shows us that humanity is in risk.

The president of US, Donald Trump, has exceeded all the limits of common sense. Under any perspective, his immigration policy is disgusting. The working class from all around the world has to condemn in a public manner that posture.

The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU), since the first years of its foundation, has had a clear and plain position against nuclear weapons. During all of its Congresses, decisions asking for the abolition of all nuclear weapons and of all countries have been voted.

Today, we are not only worried about USA’s withdrawal from Iran nuclear agreement but also about yesterday’s Trump unilateral refusal which canceled the scheduled meeting with DPR Korea’s leadership.

A communist approach to election work in 2018The urgency of this moment increases daily as the Trump administration speeds up its repressive measures and as the resistance continues to grow including with the explosion of new progressive candidates, many women and many racially and nationally oppressed.

The World Federation of Trade Unions, gathering in its ranks more than 92 million workers in 126 countries all over the world, follows the recent developments concerning the withdrawal of the U.S.A. from the international nuclear agreement on the nuclear program of Iran and the announcement of new economic sanctions against Iran by the U.S.A. The U.S.A. once more uses false pretexts in order to exploit the natural resources of other countries and to serve the interests of national large monopoly groups.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked and praised US President Donald Trump Tuesday night, May 8: “Israel fully supports President Trump’s bold decision today to reject the disastrous nuclear deal with the terrorist regime in Tehran,” Netanyahu said in English just minutes after Trump’s dramatic announcement in the White House.

The Party for Socialism and Liberation from the US and the Tudeh Party of Iran treat the intensifying tension between two countries.

On May 8, US President Donald Trump declared his decision to withdraw his country from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the Iran nuclear deal signed in 2015. Trump defined the deal as "a horrible one-sided deal that should have never, ever been made" and justified his decision with arguments about Iran's "malign behavior in the region" and her involvement in terrorist activities.

President Trump’s announcement of the United States’ withdrawal from the nuclear agreement with Iran is an unwarranted and irresponsible step that needs to be strongly condemned. The threat of imposing sanctions on Iran is illegal and should be resolutely opposed by the United Nations.
