CPUSA teleconference: 2011 elections victories set stage for struggles ahead

Voters went to the polls Nov. 8 and decisively repudiated Republican Tea Party extremist assaults on collective bargaining, immigration reform, reproductive rights, gay and lesbian rights and right to vote in several states. 

This was a powerful statement and will help to further change the debate across the country away from the Tea Party anti-government attacks and talk of deficit reduction and more against corporate greed and taxing the rich.

This development is connected to the growing Occupy Movement and reflects the power of the 99% when united and in action. If the labor-led people’s movement can build on the election results, it can have an important impact on the outcome of the 2012 elections.

Join us Tuesday, November 15 for the next Communist Party USA national teleconference. The subject is:
