Message to the International Conference March 24/25th, 2007, Chianciano Terme, Italy
Revolusjon (Revolution) send our warmest greeting to the International conference «With the resistance». This conference is a very important step towards breaking the de facto censorship and information blocade of the imperialists concerning the struggle of the peoples in the Middle East, especially in Iraq.
The just resistance of the peoples will prevail in the end. By joining forces and gaining the support of the workers and peoples worldwide, the anti-imperialist struggle will take new leaps ahead.
We wish the conference success!

The US ambassador to Norway, Barry White, has stated that the established Norwegian parties, i.e. from Fremskrittspartiet to Rødt ("Red"), would all fit into the Democratic Party in the USA. We seldom agree with US ambassadors, but in this specific case his observation is remarkably close to the truth.Barry White to Aftenposten 23 Sep 2013
Following the September 9th national elections, the overtly right-wing parties of the bourgeoisie won a majority of the Norwegian votes. The outcome is a neo-liberal government constituted by the Conservative Party (Høyre) led by Erna Solberg and the right-wing populist Progress Party (Fremskrittspartiet) led by Siv Jensen. This will be the most reactionary government seen in Norway for decades.
”The Workers’ Communist Party of Norway (AKP) has decided to dissolve itself and merge into a new, ’broad’ party* together with the Red Electoral Alliance (RV). This amalgamated party is obviously a reformist project, and those who endorse it, can no longer rightfully regard themselves as communists”, COMMUNIST PLATFORM states in a declaration issued on March 9th, and continues:
“This new party will be a party lacking communist organizational norms, and the programme only uses the term ‘communism’ as mere decoration, devoid of content. The new party programme makes it clear that Marxism, i.e. the theory of the working class, is but one among several ideological currents ‘from which the party will draw its ideology and politics’. The party will base itself on financial backing from the state, it will not have a policy of safeguarding its members, and it will be strongly focused on parliamentary work. The new party does not fully recognize that the state is an instrument of the ruling bourgeoisie class. This amalgamated party is clearly a reformist project, and those who endorse it, can no longer rightfully regard themselves as communists.
