Good morning, revolution!


This weekend marks the third year in which Juneteenth is finally being celebrated as a federally recognized holiday. First celebrated in Texas in 1866, the holiday demonstrates the role of the slaves in emancipating themselves. W.E.B. DuBois said a turning point in the Civil War was achieved when there was a general strike of the enslaved Black population. Are we now in a “post-racial society”?

Already this year university students, screen writers, and Teamsters have been out on the picket line. Important victories have been won by Amazon drivers, Starbucks workers, bus plant workers and others. With UPS workers and UAW members at the “Big Three” gearing up for potential strike action, it’s looking like “it’s gonna be a hot labor summer” as many labor leaders have said. What’s the latest with the screenwriters, and what lesser known workplace battles are taking place around the country?

In a recent development in the war on women, a federal appeals court in Texas said a violent domestic abuser still has the right to bear arms, even after threatening to shoot his partner. What can explain these recklessly irrational and anti-democratic moves?

An important victory for Native American sovereignty was won on Thursday when SCOTUS upheld a law that prohibits the state from removing Native children from their tribes. What further steps need to be taken to protect families of color?

    The Communist Party USA is a working class organization founded in 1919 in Chicago, IL.

    The Communist Party stands for the interests of the American working class and the American people. It stands for our interests in both the present and the future. Solidarity with workers of other countries is also part of our work. We work in coalition with the labor movement, the peace movement, the student movement, organizations fighting for equality and social justice, the environmental movement, immigrants rights groups and the health care for all campaign.

    But to win a better life for working families, we believe that we must go further. We believe that the American people can replace capitalism with a system that puts people before profit — socialism.

    We are rooted in our country's revolutionary history and its struggles for democracy. We call for "Bill of Rights" socialism, guaranteeing full individual freedoms.
