.. 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.
