Good Morning, Revolution: 90 days of hell in Gaza

 

Today’s show marks 90 days since the war on Gaza began. More than 22 thousand have been killed, more than 57 thousand injured, and of the 2.2 million people in Gaza, 1.9 million have been displaced. Mass rallies, phone calls to elected officials, boycotts and other actions are being organized to demand a ceasefire. Are these mass actions having an effect?

Claudine Gay, the first African American, second woman, and first LGBTQ President of Harvard University resigned after a right-wing attack labeling her a plagiarist. What do these developments represent, and why should this issue matter to Communists?

Nine-time Pro Bowl quarterback Russel Wilson of the Broncos has been benched after refusing to renegotiate an injury clause in his contract, jeopardizing the team’s stats, but also saving the owners $40 million. How does this issue connect with working-class and democratic issues more broadly?

Mailbag: “Why do y’all think the U.S. can make a peaceful transition to socialism? Y’all are tantamount to fantasizing the bourgeoisie will voluntarily give up regime. Why do y’all still have such unrealistic expectations?”

    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.
