  • From protest to resistance
  • Stopping the War in Iraq
  • Washington’s threat to expand imperialist war to Iran
  • Jena 6 case: potential for a new movement
  • ¡Sí se puede! Immigrant workers–Black & Brown unity
  • Racist repression and gentrification are on the rise
  • Free Palestine!
  • Forging unity between activists & poor & working people
  • Students & youth fight back
  • Growing capitalist crises: foreclose the war not homes
  • Capitalist globalization creates new conditions for workers here and worldwide
  • The overall erosion of conditions for the working class and labor’s right to organize
  • From capitalism to socialism–What Marx & Lenin have to do with it
  • Workers’ power–organizing the unorganized
  • Katrina/Rita survivors still seeking right to return
  • The ’08 Presidential elections — Democrats are not the answer
  • U.S. Out of Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia & the Caribbean
  • Fighting for women’s rights and LGBT rights
    .. and more!

If you believe…

  • We should unite in the streets to oppose the rise in racist attacks, from Jena, Louisiana to the attacks on immigrant workers.
  • We must not rely on the Democratic Party presidential candidates to stop the war and defend working people against capitalist greed.
  • Activists must be connected to the struggle of real people, and that the need for solidarity is more crucial than ever.
  • It’s time for working and poor people to unite–world wide–and speak and act in their own interest through their own organizations.
  • True and lasting equality, peace, social and economic justice, dignity and freedom are incompatible with capitalism and imperialism.
