Relevant to some of our recent discussions

Two from Workers' Liberty:
  • On the politics of the AWL, answering questions like Israel is like apartheid South Africa isn't it? and Oppressed people like the Palestinians can never be imperialists can they?
  • Sri Lanka: the left must stand for consistent democracy.
I think I've linked to this before at LibCom, but Bataille Socialiste have recently published Solidarity's classic 1971 pamphlet, "Third Worldism or Solidarity", sparked by an earlier round of violence in Sri Lanka. (Via entdinglichung.)

Added Monday: also relevant is Andrew Coates' Marxist analysis of the Euro-elections, specifically the bit about Marx versus Mazzini.
