The front line
Another year of challenges and struggles
This month marks the ten year anniversary of the first issue of our newspaper “the front line”. During that revolutionary period of the Syrian history, many intellectuals, activists, and writers, partisans and friends of our organization, collaborated to successfully publish the newspaper.
But as the counter revolution strengthened its hold over the political scene, fueled by the regime’s horrific and brutal violent military campaign to squash the rebellion, the participation of our friends although continued, has nonetheless diminished. This is highly regrettable as we have always perceived our newspaper as an open platform for all radical leftist discourse. Never just exclusive to the organization. Not that the editorial is reserved for the official stand of the organization.
Farther more we have encountered a number of minor issues. For instance we had struggled with a establishing a visual identity for the newspaper, layouts and themes were constantly changing culminating in the current form. Another issue consisted in the exclusivity in our electronic presence. That is obviously due to all sorts of convenience modern technology brings in with respect to security, logistics and finances, however we were lacking the reach of printed publications, especially those with no internet connection
Despite our efforts of printing more newspaper , the possibilities of printing and chronic power cuts hindered us in our way , which we will try to avoid , and we will give more attention to the paper newspaper this year .
The newspaper isn’t just a tool to express our opinions , it is a means of propaganda agitation and it is also a organisor . So our comrades should have to distribute the newspaper , discussing its contents with the surrounding social circle , and providing it with news and pouplar activities in all these forms ; the cultural , social , economic and politicaly , us a duty to everyone , and this is linked to another very important dimension which is the newspaper is a central organisational tool ; it’s distribution, discussion , and promotion , with the surrounding social circle , is an essential focus of our work in the new year .
The Revolutionary Left Current attaches the utmost importance to one of it’s Central tasks , which we termed “social implication” in our internal organisation document a few years ago , in order to achieve this “social implication” we must link the role of the newspaper to the activities of the various forms and levels in the circles , poplar , social , culture , syndical , and political .
This interdependence in the multi-level struggle levels , in order to achieve the social implantation of the revolutionary left is the same dynamism necessary for building the revolutionary worker’s party . It has been proven throughout the history of revolutions , including in Syria and the region , that it’s absence makes the victory of revolutions impossible or not permanent .
