Stanislav Byshok

Stuart Hooper is the only candidate for the House of Commons who opposes all kinds of austerity, from right-wing fiscal and wage austerity to left wing energy austerity. Hooper’s New Deal for the UK demands the rebuilding of infrastructure and industry, including a massive program to build modern housing, a rollback of all austerity measures, free university education for all Britons, the full funding of the National Health Service, and an £8 per hour minimum wage NOW – paid for by a 1% tax on the speculative turnover of the City of London, and financed by the nationalization of the Bank of England into a national bank. This includes an industrial renaissance for Scotland, Wales, and the north of England.

Stanislav Byshok of Moscow is one of the leading authorities on the rebirth of fascism in Ukraine in recent years. His background includes studies in psychology at Moscow State University, and attempting to monitor elections in Ukraine as an envoy of the Election Monitoring Organization of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS-EMO). (The CIS is a regional organization which includes many successor states of the USSR.) Together with his co-author Alexey Kochetkov, Byshok has produced Neonazis and Euromaidan: From Democracy to Dictatorship, the most comprehensive profile of how Ukrainian fascists, often backed by the US State Department and the National Endowment for Democracy, used the recent disturbances in Kiev to overthrow the elected government of Ukraine and then created the illegal government backed up by modern storm troopers which is at the root of the present crisis there.
