Hey there. Would you like to join the petition I'm making in the forum? I'm going to start a poll about whether or not we should restrict Trotskyites, Chomskyites, Bukharinites, Kautskyites, Bordigoids, Insurrectionist idealists and any other ultra-left who doesn't understand really existing Marxist-Leninism.
Also, praise North Korea. Kim will reunite the Koreas against western imperialism.
I am not precisely a Eurocentrist, i am one at the moment because of the circumstances: if we jump in on the fascist rhetoric and current populism of the "EU bureaucratic dictatorship!" we are only doing harm that will fuck up the material conditions for a revolution in Europe. It is better to have all the capitalists in one basket than to have them change the whole political attention towards national borders, national feelings, national segregation etc.
I am of course for the destruction of imperialist EU! Just not for the populist anti-stance against it which focuses attention on national states and leads nationalism/ bourgeois wars. What we need to focus on is educating on the causes for the EU crisis on class terms!
For instance: had a European Union existed in the 1930's-1940's, Germany would have been attacked by all EU members if it had attacked one EU member state. The same is true for NATO; everyone know what kind if an imperialist tool this is, but it does secure a kind of peace among the capitalist class that are in it. So long these kind of peace-securing unions of capital exist (however reactionary they may be; in fact, the reactionary the more arguments we have against this kind of institution), we have to make sure that they are not destroyed by inter-bourgeois feuds, war is too high a cost and not helpful for the revolution in today's capitalist (legally totalitarian) states. We simply have to agitate for workers to organise and build institutions in their interests once they take power.
Comrade, i see that you are against the EU, why so? I find it very important to make sure that Transnational unions exist so long there is capitalism, especially with Europe's history. Of course the EU in Brussels has more lobbyists than politicians, is an imperialist organisation etc. but i think we should not jump on the current populist train of resisting the "EU bureaucratic dictatorship!"; We should voice our discontent towards the particular kind of institution it is, a neo-liberal, utterly reactionary and imperialist tool for capital. We should though make clear that nationalism means war, that if the current anti-social corrupt capitalist EU is not replaced by a democratic social Union of European States, and that only the unified European working class can make this happen, there will not be peace or a future.
The former organizations from the region that had supported ETA had primarily been Direct Action (France) who had an Internationalist relationship with the struggles of Anti-Imperialist Militants that had fought for Self-Determination for their Communities; The Red Brigades; Revolutionary Cells (RZ) and the Red Army Faction.
Legal parties within Spain although are incapable of supporting ETA due to the nature of Spanish political repression. However other separatists within Spain have shown solidarity towards the Basque Struggle in the past.
'Alright, thank you. Any idea how Marxist-Leninist it actually is? '
For the most part-- While ETA has Marxist-Leninist rhetoric and upholds the National Question in relation to Socialism in One Country, ETA is primarily Left-Nationalist in the same sense that similar organizations are.
'Do they get any support from ML parties from Spain and France (or elsewhere)?'
Those whom primarily support the ETA (Other organizations) are mainly those within the same struggle that ETA has been in for a prolonged period of time; IE: PFLP, PKK (Or various other Kurdish Militant Organizations for this matter), the former INLA.
' About ETA, I know nothing about them. Like, I have no idea how much their struggle is actually supported by the Basque people etc.'
ETA is simply the Armed Paramilitary Wing of the Basque Independence Struggle; Due to this ETA is marginally smaller than various other Non-Armed Basque Movements. (As it is simply the Armed Wing as opposed to being a 'legal organization.')
Support has varied in the same sense that similar struggles have had varying support among the Community that they're representing, empowering and attempting to emancipate. (Ireland being an example with the 'RA)
Certainly though ETA is justified within their action if it is to meet a degree of civility at emancipating and empowering the Basque Proletariat against the Spanish State.
Sadly certain 'Marxist-Leninists' appear to disregard the National Question in relation to the self-determination of oppressed nationalities that are seeking to form a self-determined state in regards to Socialism in One Country.
