Imperialist powers have implemented a no-fly zone over Libya to protect their own strategic and economic interests and to restore their damaged prestige. Incredibly, some on the Marxist left support this military intervention. PETER TAAFFE writes.

HANNAH SELL explains that this view poses a danger to the struggle to defeat the attacks of this right-wing government.
