The YCL Johannesburg Central Branch Marxist Classes continue this afternoon with Marx’s Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right. The session is at SATAWU offices, 13th floor, Old Mutual Building, 29 Kerk Street, between Loveday and Harrison. Next Wednesday’s session at the same time and place will be on “The Attitude of the Worker’s Party to Religion” by Lenin (see below). This was planned a long time ago but turns out to be very topical in relation to the “cartoon” row. Two articles on the Cuban Five and the general campaign against US-sponsored terrorism against Cuba. Comrades, for our own sakes we need to step up our activities in support of our heroic Cuban comrades. We also owe it to them. And, not least, we love them. Haiti is reported in our own press as being about to vote for the progressive candidate and against the gangsters. We may see five more like this in the near future: Costa Rica, Peru, Ecuador, Nicaragua and Mexico. Simon Jenkins is a “Tory”, but in my opinion he has made a very good contribution to the extraordinary worldwide debate on the anti-Muslim cartoons that were published in a Danish paper.
