Summary: Statement by the International Marxist Humanist Organization against war and imperialist sanctions. While the attack, attributed to Iran, on the Saudi oil processing plant shows the vulnerability of US allies in the region, the new financial sanctions the US is using against Iran — and also Venezuela — constitute an unprecedented type of imperialist intervention, in addition to threats of outright war — Editors

Both the recent moves over Syria and the Iran agreement are part of a broader realignment of global and regional powers that above all want to restore “order” in the Middle East – Editors.
All eyes are on Kobane, Syria, where Kurdish forces, women as well as men, are under threat of extermination from the reactionary ISIS, even as they seek to defend their social gains. They are doing so in the face of several other forces of reaction, whether US imperialism, the genocidal Assad regime, or the virulently anti-Kurdish Turkish regime – Editors
The following is adapted from the Call that preceded our July 2014 Convention in Chicago. It takes up several issues of key importance to those struggling to overcome the stranglehold of capitalism, from the economy and Ukraine to the dialectics of race/class/revolution and the contributions of Marxist-Humanists to the fight for a new humanist society. We also call attention to our July statement of the IMHO on Gaza and to our August analysis of Ferguson, Missouri, as well as to our June statement on the challenge of ISIS. – Editors
