TO BUILD A POLITICAL ALTERNATIVE TO THE PRESENT STATE OF AFFAIRS
Rete dei Comunisti
Draghi’s resignation closed a political cycle that opened in 2018, through governments that were the result of ‘variable geometry’ party alchemy. After the two M5S-led executives, the third was the result of the Euro-Atlantic commissariat of the country, to which the entire parliamentary framework was substantially subordinated, as in the days of the Monti government.
From 13 February 2021 until the July crisis, the government of the former head of the ECB proceeded ‘unhindered’ by taking absolutely relevant decisions: PNRR, privatizations, aid to companies, and sending arms to Ukraine. An agenda dictated by Brussels turned into ‘current business’ through strategic choices that will affect well beyond his term of office.
President of the Republic Mattarella, who has always been at the service of the Euro/Atlantic project, immediately dissolved the Chambers, imposing an election campaign in the middle of August. The purpose is clear: to reduce political agility and space for social interlocution as much as possible in order to quickly return to an executive subordinate to the diktats of the EU and NATO.
In this scenario, the main political formations, beyond the volatility of the polls, make use of enormous media coverage in the service of the ‘strong powers’, bypassing the test of signature collection.
By contrast, the Unione Popolare, a political alliance not prone to the strategists of NATO, the EU oligarchies, and the interests of Confindustria, had to jump the signature-gathering bar in the middle of August. This was no easy feat, successfully achieved, allowing it to stand in the elections throughout the country. It was the first encouraging political result, to which the militants of the Rete dei Comunisti actively contributed through Potere al Popolo, a constituent part of Unione Popolare.
In the coming weeks we will commit ourselves to Unione Popolare with an electoral campaign ‘on the ground’, side by side with the activists of Potere al Popolo, highlighting the strategic nodes of the crisis of the capitalist mode of production that the next executive to come out of the polls on September 26th will have to face: the increasingly harsh economic and social crisis, the trend towards war, the ecological infarction of the planet. To these, as to other ‘systemic distortions’, the totality of the political framework proposes the worn-out neo-liberal and warmongering formulas, aligning itself with Washington (NATO) and Brussels (EU), which convey the interests of the large multinationals, the so-called industrial and financial ‘champions’ that are devastating the world.
We will face a short and intense electoral campaign, a necessary step in the construction of an independent political representation of the subaltern social classes, for a political entity that fights for the rupture of the present state of affairs and the construction of 21st century Socialism.
