Good morning, revolution! Time to prevent WWIII

 

Houthi forces in Yemen have been obstructing traffic through the Red Sea to oppose the ongoing genocide in Gaza. In response, the U.S. has been bombing Yemen to “protect free trade.” What’s the ruling class trying to accomplish, and how can the working class respond?

After Trump rode to victory in Iowa, despite having 91 felony charges pending against him, the NYTimes claimed “working-class voters delivered the Republican Party to Donald J. Trump.” Is that true?

After white point guard¬† for the Oklahoma City Thunder Josh Giddey was accused of having a sexual relationship with a child, the NBA said they would take a backseat to the police investigation, taking no disciplinary action against him. However, Black point guard for the Memphis Grizzlies Ja Morant was suspended 25 games for showing a legal firearm on his personal Instagram story for a few seconds. The NBA said this measure was taken to protect impresionable children. How do the NBA’s double standards relate to broader racist attacks on the working class as a whole?

Mailbag: Why does the party support rent control as an economic policy when every mainstream economist rejects rent control because of its ability to decrease housing supplies (and therefore, fail to lower prices for the average consumer)?

    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.
