  • Black Lives Matter protests continue at Trump’s doorstep

    I had the honor of joining in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) Black Lives Matter–endorsed protest events this past Saturday evening in Washington, DC, at both Freedom Plaza (a location of one of the Occupy DC encampments back in fall 2011) and the newly named Black Lives Matter Plaza. From what I’ve seen, heard, and read, these recent BLM protests are distinct from the past in that an unprecedented number of white people are joining in solidarity with the protests across the country. The events were Black led and Black voiced, and people were happy to make space in conversation for each other. There was an outpouring of mutual aid from different organizations giving out sanitizer, masks, water, snacks, meals, and street medic services.

  • From uprising to elections and beyond

    Our country is in the midst of an unprecedented uprising. Initiated by the African American people and joined by our Asian, Latino, Native American, and white sisters and brothers, millions are saying, “hell no” to institutionalized racism. And this is happening not only in America but also all over the world. Humanity is standing up, demonstrating their solidarity, declaring that George Floyd, and before him Breonna Taylor, and before her, Ahmaud Arbery did not die in vain.

  • Solidarity with the People of United States!

    comunista

    We, the Communist and Worker's Parties express our solidarity with the multinational working class of the USA and with the NorthAmerican people that have taken to the streets mobilizing against racism, repression, unemployment, and other acute problems caused by the capitalist system of exploitation.

    The murder of George Floyd is not an exception, it's a rule racist policy, against African-Americans, Latinos, and immigrants of other nationalities. The system of exploitation confronts, in the same manner, the whole of the working class, as the COVID-19 pandemic proves, that is currently over two million infections and almost 113,000 deaths, where many lives could have been saved, but a privatized health care system turned out to be dangerous because its criteria is capitalist profit.

  • Mobilize for November 3rd and beyond

    As has been said, we are at a tipping point moment in our country, and it’s so wonderful to have the strength and analysis of our Party expressed in the report from Joe Sims and the reports that will come from the comrades in the battleground states.

    The clock is ticking. We have 150 days until the 2020 election, the election of our lives.

  • As economy reopens, workers’ health may be collateral damage

    Trump, followed immediately by Republican governors across the nation, stated that our nation “must reopen.” Those governors then told workers in their states that they must return to work when recalled, or they will have their unemployment benefits cut off.

    This past week, with millions more filing jobless claims, the total new claims related to the coronavirus have reached 40 million, meaning the total jobless numbers are probably already past the 50 million figure put out by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.

  • CP attack class-based racism and call for nationalisation to save jobs

    ‘The vicious killing of George Floyd has highlighted the racism that still pervades developed capitalist societies and their state institutions’, Mollie Brown declared at the Communist Party of Britain’s executive committee meeting this weekend.  She pointed to recent examples of the deaths and serious injuries of black detainees in police custody in Britain, the US and France which, she suggested, were also related to the use of dangerous restraint techniques that were used disproportionately against black and working-class people.

  • Trump, white supremacy, and racial capitalism

    The U.S. stands at a crossroads. In one direction lies more of what we’ve already known: repression, exploitation, and brutality. In the other, the promise of freedom, socialist equality, and racial justice.

    Liberal economist Jeffrey Sachs recently wrote that as the U.S. approached 100,000 deaths from COVID-19, “six Asia-Pacific nations–Australia, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Taiwan, and Vietnam–have just over 1,200 coronavirus deaths in a combined population almost the same as the U.S., 328 million.” Sachs might have also noted that China has four times as many people as the U.S. and has suffered 120 the number of deaths.

  • Ireland Stands with Minneapolis #BlackLivesMatter

    STATEMENT ON THE MURDER OF GEORGE FLOYD

    The Connolly Youth Movement is shocked to see the video footage of a police officer kneeling on an innocent man and choking him to death while he called for help. This is a tragedy, but it is no accident. It is part of the law enforcement and justice system in the United States, which dates back to slavery. It has maintained this system, and ethnic minorities are imprisoned and murdered in wild disproportion to population amounts. We stand in solidarity and send our deepest condolences to the friends and family of George Floyd. We express our solidarity with the protestors, who have no means to express themselves, other than the destruction of the institutions that oppress and murder them.
