Media coverage of the Iraqi election has thickened the fog of lies and misinformation about the Iraqi resistance.
In the new International Socialism, Anne Alexander and Simon Assaf counter the myths and provide the fullest account of the resistance yet to appear. They argue that it is a movement for national liberation that deserves the support of anti-imperialists everywhere.
The journal also interviews Iranian activist Elaheh Rostami Povey about workers and women in Iran. It also looks at how the 1905 Russian Revolution affected Marxist theory, debates trade union struggles in Britain today and talks to the people behind the Marxists Internet Archive.
