Theses on the Right of Nations to Self-determination - Georgy Pyatakov, Yevgenia Bosch, Nikolai Bukharin

A set of theses, first published in the single-issue journal 'Kommunist' no. 1-2, Geneva 1915, (not to be confused with the journal 'Kommunist', of the same name, that appeared in 1918 at Saint Petersburg (ten issues) and Moscow (four issues)), written by Georgy Pyatakov, Yevgenia Bosch and Nikolai Bukharin on the 'national question'.

The Russian Social Democrats and the National Question - Lev Rybalka

Article by Lev (Yurkevych) Rybalka, the left-wing leader of the Ukrainian Social Democratic Workers' Party, published in Russian and aimed chiefly at the Russian left in January 1917, subjecting Lenin’s 'The Socialist Revolution and the Right of Nations to Self-Determination' to an extensive critique. The journal of the anti-Leninist left of the RSDRP(B), 'Vperyod', carried a review very favourable to the brochure. Though rather unknown today Yurkevych was active since 1905 in the USDRP and well-known in the Second International and the Zimmerwald anti-war movement. He fell ill at the outbreak of the revolution and died in Moscow.

The question of nationalities and social democracy - Otto Bauer

Austro-Marxist, Otto Bauer's contribution to the problems of the 'national question'. First published in German in 1907, this text has been cited in countless discussions of nationalism, from the writings of Lenin to Benedict Anderson’s 'Imagined Communities'. The issues Bauer addressed almost a century ago still challenge current debates on diversity and minority rights. Bauer advocated an early concept of multiculturalism and called for a system of self-determination for ethnic communities in which extensive autonomy would be granted within a confederal, multicultural state - Bauer's words, a "United States of Europe", with remarkable similarities to the contemporary European Union.

Contra o patriotismo - contra o nacionalismo - abaixo as fronteiras nacionais! - humanaesfera

Não há absolutamente nenhum argumento honesto que justifique que defendamos qualquer nação ou pátria. Muito pelo contrário: defender a pátria, qualquer que seja, sempre e em qualquer caso, é sacrificarmo-nos para defender nossos próprios opressores (é ser bucha de canhão deles, que nunca vão eles mesmos à carnificina dos campos de batalha), e pior ainda, é trair e assassinar nossos irmãos de classe do outro lado das fronteiras estabelecidas pelos mesmos opressores.

It was a quarter of a century ago, on March 7th, 1991, when the proletarian uprising in Iraq against war showed to the world proletariat the only way forward to eliminate wars forever.
