LEFT ON THE MOVE NEWSLETTER 11.24

In this Newsletter, we highlight midterm elections in the United States. Pedro Fuentes analyzes the results that reinforced the political and social polarization in the country governed by Donald Trump. Ben Beckett and Meagan Day (members of the DSA) make the political balances of the elections from the point of view of the American left.

In Bolsonaro’s Brazil, the left debates the new situation opened by the electoral earthquake that raised the presidency plus a right-wing puppy of Donald Trump. We share in this bulletin the text of the balance sheet and the political framework of the Esquerda Socialista Movement, as well as an article by Bernardo Corrêa on the centrality of the struggle for justice by Marielle in the relentless struggle against bolsonarism.

About Latin America, we selected an article by Dan La Botz about the caravan of Honduran immigrants who are moving towards the Mexican border with the United States. Against the repression and authoritarianism of Daniel Ortega, we reproduce the declaration of the Executive Committee of the IV International in solidarity with the Nicaraguan people.

We wish everyone an excellent internationalist reading!

The Defeat of The Plans of Bolsonaro Begins For Justice For Marielle | by Bernardo Corrêa

Definitely “Free Lula” will not be the flag that unifies broad sectors of Brazilian society around this program and this calendar. The hegemony of the PT already brought the mass movement to innumerable defeats.

MIGRANT CARAVANS

Migrant Caravans Challenge the Continent’s Governments | by Dan La Botz_

Central American migrants, both desperate and courageous, have thrust themselves into the center of Mexican and U.S. politics with their demand for refuge and asylum. As the head of the NGO Pueblos Sin Fronteras told a reporter, “This isn’t just a caravan, it’s an exodus created by hunger and death.”
