On the eighth day of Marxmas, we give to you a podcast on the Sudanese Revolution. A country that has suffered a great deal at the hands of imperialism and global capitalism, came out in a revolutionary upsurge in 2018. Listen to the lessons we can learn here.
May 1968 was the greatest revolutionary general strike in history. This mighty movement took place at the height of the post-war economic upswing in capitalism. Then, as now, the bourgeois and their apologists were congratulating themselves that revolutions and class struggle were things of the past. Then came the French events of 1968, which seemed to drop like a thunderbolt from a clear blue sky. They took most of the Left completely by surprise, because, they had all written off the European working class as a revolutionary force.
