Over the past month, the Supreme Court has waged major attacks on the rights of working people. The racist Muslim ban was ruled constitutional by a vote of 5-4 despite mass opposition throughout the country. Meanwhile, reproductive rights were further eroded when the Supreme Court voted in favor of faith-based pregnancy crisis clinics and their right to “freedom of speech,” allowing these clinics to withhold medical information based on religious beliefs. On June 27, the Supreme Court dealt a huge blow to unions in the Janus v. AFSCME decision by eliminating the mandate of public sector unions to collect dues weakening their ability to affectively represent their membership.

These examples show once again the true pro-corporate nature of the U.S. government and the need for a mass workers’ movement to demand our rights regardless of who sits on the Supreme Court. Join us for socialist analysis on these decisions and how we can organize a fight back movement.
