Egypt elections Photo: Carlos LatuffOn Friday more than a million Egyptian youth, workers and poor yet again assembled in Tahrir Square. The masses have once again risen in an attempt to remove the remnants of the Mubarak regime, which are still in power. Not far from Tahrir, in Abbassiya Square, not more than a couple of thousand people gathered in a pathetic demonstration in support of the SCAF. To the sceptics who did not believe in the revolution, this should be a clear demonstration of the real balance of forces. But at the same time the revolution clearly faces obstacles, not from external forces, but in its own internal contradictions.

Do not voteLast Friday, 25th November, the Moroccan dictatorship organised sham elections for its puppet parliament. These legislative elections can only be understood as an attempt at survival on the part of the capitalist monarchy. The regime is desperately in search of a new legitimacy, but it failed miserably.

Continuamos con el análisis de las consecuencias de las pasadas elecciones del 20 de noviembre con un análisis sobre la situación económica a la que se enfrentará el gobierno del PP, cuando en los últimos días se ha manifestado más evidentemente la idea de la "Europa a dos velocidades".
