The August 12 protests and their implications

Fred Bergen | Only the working class, mobilizing the power that is uniquely its own to stop war production and paralyze the war industries, and based on its material interest in the defeat of imperialism, can stop the war! But the strategy needed to stop the war -- massive political strikes aimed at bringing down the government of the imperialists -- requires a political break with the bourgeois forces. more...  1 Comments

Providence: Protesters chase off 21st Century Klan ride

red Bergen |
The protesters, organized by the International Socialist Organzation, the Workers International League, Working Class Emancipation, and independent activists, clearly scored a minor victory by demoralizing the racists and discouraging them from returning. But as this writer emphasized in a speech at the protest, only the massive, independent action of the working class can decisively defeat the racist vigilante groups like the Klan, the Minutemen, and the Paul Revere riders and, most importantly, overthrow the capitalist state apparatus that stimulates and defends them. more...  0 Comments

STARBUCKS INFAMY: IWW Organizer Daniel Gross Terminated for Union Activity!

Eco-Wob | The Starbucks "investigation" of IWW member Daniel Gross concluded today with his termination after more than three years of organizing at the company. Daniel's expression of solidarity at a union picket line with co-worker and fellow union member, Evan Winterscheidt, was deemed threatening by Starbucks despite multiple eyewitnesses who confirm that Daniel merely asserted to District Manager Allison Marx that Evan should not be fired. With the termination of IWW members Daniel Gross, Evan Winterscheidt, Joe Agins Jr., and Charles Fostrom in less than a year, Starbucks has demonstrated conclusively its intense hostility to the right of workers to join a union...Take Action Now! more...  0 Comments
