Notes From Ferguson As the protests in Ferguson, MO, enter their 12th day, following the shooting of Michael Brown by local police, the Workers International League (US section of the IMT) continues to intervene in this spontaneous upsurge, in Ferguson itself, and on the campuses in the area. These events mark a qualitative turning point in the class struggle in the United States. Read the Full Story
The Decline of US Imperialism In the decades after World War II, US imperialism ruled the roost over much of the planet. After the collapse of Stalinism and the USSR, we were told that we had entered a new era—the “Pax Americana”—in which freedom, peace, and plenty would prevail for the whole of humanity. The reality has been very different. Read the Full Story

St. Louis: Justice for Michael Brown

fergusonprotest3On August 27, the Youth for International Socialism (YFIS) club at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) held a forum titled, “Justice for Michael Brown: Enough is Enough!” to present a Marxist analysis of the events in Ferguson and the role of the state in capitalist society.

The Youth and the Socialist Future

sa83featuredEditorial for Socialist Appeal 83 - Today’s youth, the so-called millennials, face a bleak future under capitalism. They carry the highest student debt in history and have entered “adulthood” at a time when housing prices have skyrocketed and the labor market has imploded. More than half of recent graduates are unemployed or underemployed, often in low-wage jobs having nothing to do with their degrees. Nonetheless, they must make monthly payments on an average of $20,000 in student loans.

 

[Leaflet] A Program of Struggle for Youth & Students

NEWWILLOGO1SmallerThe burden of the capitalist crisis is being passed on to the working class and the youth through a near-universal assault on our quality of life. Millions of jobs have disappeared forever and unemployment is especially high among young workers. Both the federal government and almost all the states have been slashing their education budgets, further exacerbating the pressure on the youth. Access to education is increasingly difficult for the average working class family. Those who can go to school face fee increases and cut-backs in all areas: lost programs and courses, redundancies in school staff and faculty, increased class sizes, cuts in student transportation and other services.

   

Italy: Festa Rossa—A Resounding Success!

seminarFrom the minute comrades began to set up the stage, a week before the event was due to open, it was clear that the times were ripe for the return of our national Red Festival (Festa Rossa) for the 4th year. As soon as the first comrades set foot in the XXII Aprile park, in the city of Modena, mounting tents, stages, kitchens and various stands, dozens of people from the neighborhood came to us expressing their delight that the communist gathering had returned to the area.
