[Leaflet] Bernie Sanders and the 2016 Presidential Election

SA90EditorialFeaturedImageBig shocks are in store for US and world capitalism, which will lead to even greater hardship for the workers and youth. Cuts and austerity for the majority and unimaginable wealth for the minority is the “new normality.” Anger is building in response to the shocking inequality, low wages, sexism, homophobia, racism, and police brutality. People are sick and tired of the status quo, and the general population is shifting to the left. However, there is no mass political party of, by, and for the working class through which to express this radicalization. With a historically weakened left, without a clear lead by the labor leaders, and in the absence of an existing labor party, the political vacuum on the left is inevitably filled in a distorted way by liberals and both left and right populists.

[Leaflet] “Oxi” to Capitalism! Yes to Socialism!

OXIRallyThe crisis in Greece has reached its boiling point. After years of austerity and hardship, the Greek masses have had enough. The troika seeks to destroy the Syriza government and to “teach a lesson” to anyone who goes against the dictates of capital. The Greek masses have the right instincts and have fought heroically but need a clear and bold leadership. Syriza was elected with massive enthusiasm to stop these attacks. Unfortunately, Tsipras and the leadership have vacillated in the face of the enormous pressures being put on them. Nevertheless, there is still time to reverse the situation.

[Updated Leaflet] "You Can't Have Capitalism Without Racism"

 These simple words by the great revolutionary martyr Malcolm X sum up a profound truth about the world we live in. Capitalism is a system based on inequality, exploitation, oppression, and discrimination. The working class makes up the vast majority — it is we who create the wealth of society through our labor. But it is the small handful of capitalists who keep most of that wealth and enjoy all the benefits. How is it possible for a tiny minority to dominate the majority?

Many people argue that the working class no longer exists, or that it is no longer a revolutionary force for change. The Marxists, however, look beneath the superficial appearances, and understand that as long as capitalism and classes continue, so too does the class struggle. We cannot look at the unions, their leadership, or the rank and file as something static and unchanging.
