Revolutionaries, radicals and militant workers who want to fight to win should attend and discuss what revolutionary strategy and tactics are needed to overcome this epidemic of political incompetence and boundless confusion that arrests our development.
The two culprits of this epidemic are reformism and centrism. The reformist labor bureaucrats and the fake-left centrists of the Transport workers Solidarity Committee collaborated with the bureaucrats' betrayal. They dread, and are truly afraid of massive workers upsurge against the capitalists' attacks.

Ask any of the BART workers who belong to the TWSC if the TWSC ''dreads'' workers fighting back . What Bullshit ! In the real world the TWSC was a serious thorn in the side of the SEIU and ATU tops by demanding that they fight to win. Today both the Tribune and the Chron claimed that a majority of those polled in the Bay area wanted Transit worker's strikes outlawed . Insofar as that's true a good part of the responsabilty for that public opinion setback is due to the Union officials refusing to even take out newspaper ads countering all the anti union propaganda and disinformation .
Much more could be said . Maybe more later.
If anyone reading this attends this event ask the speakers what exactly did their tiny grouplet do to win the strike ?
