IMT Manifesto on the Arab Revolution
The Arab Revolution was a source of inspiration to workers and young people everywhere. It rocked every country in the Middle East to the foundations and its reverberations were being felt all over the world. The dramatic events in North Africa and Egypt marked a decisive turning point in human history. These events were not isolated accidents apart from the general process of the world revolution.
What opened up before us was the early stages of the world socialist revolution. The same general process continues to unfold, albeit at different rhythms, around the globe. There will inevitably be ebbs and flows, defeats as well as victories, disappointments as well as successes. We must be prepared for this.
But the general tendency will be towards a greater acceleration of the class struggle on a world scale. The marvelous movement of the masses in Tunisia and Egypt was only the beginning. Revolutionary developments are on the order of the day and no country can consider itself immune from the general process. The revolutions in the Arab world were a manifestation of the crisis of capitalism on a world scale. The events in Tunisia and Egypt showed the advanced capitalist countries their future as in a mirror.
This booklet brings together the Manifesto of the International Marxist Tendency, written in the heat of the events, and a ten-year retrospective analysis.
Long live the Arab Revolution!
Workers of the world unite!
Long live socialism, the only hope for the future of humankind!
Thawra hatta’l nasr!
By The IMT and Dejan Kukic.
