Fighting Fund Appeal

NEWWILLOGO1SmallerOver and over again we see the horrors of capitalism spark social movements, but these movements need Marxist ideas and leadership to achieve victory. Garment workers are fighting back in Bangladesh, as are fast food workers throughout the USA. However, without a farsighted revolutionary leadership, history shows how these movements inevitably run into roadblocks, and disorientation and disillusionment eventually set in. If we limit ourselves to the norms of capitalism, we will never change the status quo. We cannot reform capitalism. We must organize the working class to transform society altogether.

Faced with this situation, it is no surprise that interest in Marxist ideas is on the rise.
