May Day Statement

This May 1st, Socialist Action salutes all workers and immigrants as we celebrate International Workers’ Day! Attacks against workers’ organizing rights through Right to Work and other anti-union legislation are being battled across the country.  Immigrant workers are being criminalized and deported through programs like E-verify and Secure Communities, while Muslim communities are being spied on by police and the FBI. Now more than ever we must follow in the great tradition of the U.S. worker’s movement to struggle in solidarity for justice and equality for all workers, regardless of race, creed, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. Socialist Action is committed to the struggle for an end to the unjust capitalist system and the building of a new society that meets the needs of everyone. An Injury to One is an Injury to All!

Socialist Action says:     

  • Stop attacks on unions and workers’ collective bargaining rights!
  • Top union wages for all workers!
  • End employer sanctions!
  • End all raids and deportations!
  • Unconditional legalization now!
  • End the oppression of all LGBTQ people. Full equality now!
  • Stop attacks on women’s reproductive freedom!
  • Stop police harassment, imprisonment and indefinite detention in Muslim communities!
  • No to racist attacks on all communities of the oppressed!
  • Abolish the prison-industrial complex!
  • Fund jobs not imperialist war!

The International Food Crisis and Proposals To Overcome It

[Editor’s note: We reprint this article by the Committee for the Abolition of Illegitimate Debt (CADTM). In 1989, the Bastille Appeal was launched, inviting popular movements throughout the world to unite in demanding the immediate and unconditional cancellation of the debt of the so-called developing countries. This crushing debt, along with neo-liberal macro-economic reforms imposed on the global South, has led to an explosion of worldwide inequality, mass poverty, flagrant injustice and the destruction of the environment.
