Club Q killings are part of capitalist violence and hatred

With the murderous attack on patrons of Club Q in Colorado Springs, we’ve once again witnessed massive gun violence against innocent people and yet another assault on the rights – and lives – of LGBTQ+ people. This horrific act was committed even as those at the club were observing the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance, which honors those…

International Notes

Struggle against U.S. penal slavery heats up

Reporting on the results of the November 8 elections, John Wojcik and Mark Gruenberg noted in People’s World: “Defying the political history of the United States in which parties in power lose up and down the ballot [in the midterms], Democrats ended Republican control of state legislative chambers across the country this week, including in Michigan…

The following speech was presented by United Nations Cuba Ambassador Yuri Gala López on Nov. 3, 2022, at the Henry Winston Unity Hall in New York City, where the documentary Cuba in Africa by Negash Abdurahman was also shown.

The people’s coalition stops a GOP wave

The midterms were a significant setback for the MAGA crowd, with many Trump-supported candidates losing their elections. With a few important exceptions, it appears that the big conclusion from Tuesday’s midterms is that the people’s coalition that sent Trump packing two years ago remains formidable — the anti-MAGA majority remains strong. Congratulations…

NY coalition protests corporate backers of fascism

While big business media in the U.S. would have us believe the main pillar of support for Trump and his fascist MAGA movement comes from the so-called “white working class,” the reality is something quite different. The 147 “coup caucus” Republicans who voted to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election—many of whom also supported…

No to U.S. intervention in Haiti!

Once again the major corporate media, including the New York Times and Washington Post, call for military intervention in Haiti. Yet one would have to search painstakingly to find when these bastions of the “free press” last opposed sending the U.S. war machine or its proxies into another country. Or for evidence that Haitians are looking for yet…

Notes on the historic challenge of the 2022 midterm election

The Trump forces have spent billions of corporate dollars to rob the people of their means to fight for their basic rights, including the right to vote. They are stepping up propaganda, gerrymandering, and the disenfranchisement of citizens. They are trying to eliminate any peaceful paths to real economic and social justice. Through his actions and…

Why we oppose Biden’s Warsaw speech and Putin’s war

As the bombs drop and the war rages on into the 5th week of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, President Biden dramatically escalated the danger of a wider conflict by calling for Vladimir Putin’s removal. “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power,” quipped Biden at the end of a much-touted speech in Warsaw. The allegedly off-the-cuff remark…

Emmett Till Antilynching Act is important, but just a start

“Lynching is now a federal hate crime after a century of blocked efforts,” NPR’s Eric McDaniel and Elena Moore reported on March 29, continuing: After multiple failed attempts across twelve decades, there is now a federal law that designates lynching as a hate crime. In a Tuesday ceremony at the White House, President Biden signed the Emmett Till…

Helen Leiviska Kruth and Helvi Savola: CPUSA dynamic-duo leaders

Helen and Helvi were both from families whose Finnish language and progressive politics informed their worldview. Helvi was born in 1915 in Wakefield, Michigan, in the Upper Peninsula.

What’s behind the coups d’état rocking the African Sahel?

Recently there has been a series of military coups d’état in the Sahel region of West Africa, and in Sudan further to the East. Civilian government was overthrown in Mali in August of 2020, when President Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta was replaced by a military junta. In September of 2021, President Alpha Condé of Guinea was ousted and arrested by the…

Profiting off the pandemic

While vast numbers of working-class people struggle to find affordable housing, put food on the table, and pay for prescription medicines, the U.S. ruling class is living its best life: reaping in profits, showering rewards on their executives and shareholders, and exploiting workers as vigorously as ever. Contrary to expectations that the Covid-19…

Lucy Parsons, American revolutionary

Let the masses understand that these robbers hold this property (which is so much unpaid labor) under the plea of the laws which they themselves have made . . .  and further, that these so-called laws would not be worth the paper they are written on, twenty-four hours after the producers of all wealth had willed it otherwise. Lucy Parsons wrote the…

Person of faith? The Communist Party welcomes you!

There is so much misunderstanding of the relationship between religion and communist views. More often than not, people only associate communism with atheism due to misquoting Marx in his comment of religion being the “opium of the masses.” Due to misquoting and misinformation, the general thought has been that no one of religious faith or practice…

Dorothy Burnham, civil rights activist

The Amsterdam News published an article on Dorothy Burnham, an African American activist who turns 107 years old on March 22. Dorothy was a long-time member of the Communist Party, which goes unmentioned in the article.

Helen Winter, CPUSA leader, labor and peace activist

In 1908, as the first decade of the 20th century was coming to a close, Helen Winter was born in Seattle, Washington. Her parents, Alfred Wagenknecht and Hortense Allison, as leaders of the Washington State Socialist Party, no doubt hoped that their daughters would grow up to understand and fully participate in the ongoing struggles for a more just…

The role of Communists in union organizing

Decades of wage stagnation, little to no benefits, work weeks well above 40 hours, increasing housing costs, drastically declining standards of living, and plummeting life expectancy rates have all led working people across the United States to rethink having a union at their workplaces. Two years of the pandemic have woken up millions of people around…

Let’s organize around student debt!

While on the campaign trail, Joseph Biden made a lot of promises. One of them was to forgive $10,000 dollars in student debt. His promises paid off big. When election time came around, Biden won roughly 60% of the youth vote. So far, the president has only partially honored his promise. The Education Department recently announced the forgiveness of…

Women power today and forever!

On March 8, International Women’s Day, we remember the past and recommit ourselves to the struggle for a better future for all women. It was the courage of hundreds of women needle-trades workers that inspired International Women’s Day. They walked off the job for better wages and the right to vote in 1909, striking for 13 weeks in a bitter cold…
