Two days from the May 11 referendum in Donetsk and Luhansk, the Kiev authorities, unable to crush the uprising in the Donbas, are stepping up the war hysteria, curtailing democratic rights and incorporating fascist paramilitaries into the state apparatus. Meanwhile there are signs of growing working class activity in the areas under the control of the rebels.

The uprising has deep social roots as we have explained in previous articles. How much can we put up with? We aren’t trash, as the self-proclaimed Kiev regime calls us. We’re simple working people. But the time has now come for us to act, not to sit around at home hoping someone will do everything for us. Our whole brigade is here, we came after the end of our shift. We’re going to defend the city. And if anyone is scared of getting the sack, let them remember that our strength is in our unity. Just let them try to touch a single rank-and-file mineworker!”
09 May 2014 by Jorge Martin, Fightback [Excerpts] Two days from the May 11 referendum in Donetsk and Luhansk, the Kiev authorities, unable to crush the uprising in the Donbas, are stepping up the war hysteria, curtailing democratic rights and incorporating fascist paramilitaries into the state apparatus. Meanwhile there are signs of growing working class activity in the areas under the control of the rebels. Kiev is unable to recover control of the Donbas.
 
It is now one week into the third wave of the “Anti Terror Operation” launched and it has been unable to achieve any of its aims. None of the major urban centres under the control of the Peoples’ Republic have been retaken (Sloviansk, Kramatorsk, Luhansk, Donetsk). From the point of view of Kiev the situation has worsened, with more urban centres being taken over by the rebels in both provinces.
Once again, on Friday 2 May, we saw Ukrainian troops (from the Ministry of the Interior, National Guard and the Army) surrounded by unarmed civilians in the outskirts of Sloviansk and refusing to advance. Journalists witnessed an officer confessing to the locals that he “had been sent to fight separatists, but what I have found are the people - and I will not fire against the people.” To add to the humiliation, two Army helicopters were downed by the rebels in Sloviansk. Nearby Kramatorsk also witnessed similar scenes. Unarmed civilians met the advancing APCs with shouts of “fascists” and “shame” and forced them to retreat.
 A top government spokesperson clearly described the reason for the inability of Kiev to recover control of the Donbas when he said that the army was being treated as “enemy forces” and that they were operating, in effect, in “enemy territory”. This is a correct assessment, and one which contradicts the propaganda spewed from Kiev to the effect that these towns and cities are under the control of Russian special forces and their paid agents and provocateurs.
If it was a question of a few Russian agents, then it would be relatively simple for Kiev to recover control. The truth is that the uprising in the Donbas is not the result of the machinations in the Kremlin and is not under its direct control (though of course, Russian agents are undoubtedly present).
The Uprising Has Deep Social Roots As We Have Explained In Previous  Articles. You Can See That Just By Glancing At The Program Of The Donetsk Republic”
The uprising has deep social roots as we have explained in previous articles. You can see that just by glancing at the program of the Donetsk Republic.  A leaflet which was given out on April 25 in Sloviansk contained a list of demands combining democratic issues (language rights, democratic election of governors, banning extreme right wing organisations) with economic demands centered around the idea of local control over resources.
