Soviet soldiers counter-attack from a Stalingrad factory on the outskirts of the city. The winter campaign of late 1942-early 1943 proved decisive in pushing German forces from the city and eventually ended the battle and the retreat of the Werhmacht back into Germany.

incredibly horrifying that fascists and reactionaries are killing people and gaining sympathies of U.S liberals for doing it by making it seem like government oppression.
he also claimed the ussr was basically a jewish conspiracy, advocating the use of chemical weapons against “uncivilized tribes”, opposed women’s suffrage, supported eugenics (i.e. sterilizing the “feeble-minded and insane classes”, as he put it. also wanted to send 100,000 britons to “labour camps” to halt the “decline of the british race”), sent in troops against strikers, was partially responsible for the creation of the black and tans in ireland, praised mussolini in the 1930s for showing how to “combat subversive forces” and a whole raft of other horrible shit too lengthy to mention.
Merida, 19th February 2014 (Venezuelanalysis.com) – Venezuelan automotive workers have slammed multinational car manufacturers for cutting back production in the country, while the country’s largest trade union federation has called for the nationalisation of the industry.
Accusing multinational auto companies of being “imperialist”, this week the National Workers’ Union (UNT) called on the government to place car factories under worker control.
“It’s clear and evident…that building socialism relies on the working class, indeed the workers’ control of the factories,” the UNT stated in a press release.
Workers were expected to hold protests today against cut backs at major firms including Toyota, Ford and General Motors.
Toyota started a six-week shut down at its Cumana plant in Sucre state on 13 February, citing difficulties importing parts. The factory is a major part of Sucre’s economy.
1,300 workers have been idled due to the stoppage, while an additional 1,500 indirect jobs have also been affected, according to the company.
Last year, the plant’s output was around 9,500 vehicles.
An internal Toyota memo that was circulated by Venezuelan media earlier this month stated the company is in an “extremely difficult situation”, but that worker salaries would be guaranteed for the first two weeks of the work stoppage.
The shutdown has been criticised by President Nicolas Maduro, who accused the company of exhibiting a “parasitic bourgeois mentality”. The president argued that Toyota is exaggerating for political reasons.
