Protests around the country: A snapshot


In Indianapolis, peaceful protests on May 30 and 31 were met with police violence.


Louisville, Kentucky, June 3: There were no signs of the movement slowing down in downtown Louisville. Protestors defied the curfew, marching with allied car caravans flanking them and offering food, water, and medical supplies to keep the movement strong late into the night.

    The Communist Party USA is a  revolutionary working-class  political party 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.
