Isn’t it time to fight back?

This reading and discussion series is an instrument for doing just that.

Participants look at past achievements and failures, traditions and innovations, to understand how workers got where we are today — and how to move forward.

Session 6, Wednesday 7/20, “Regaining Labor's Mojo in an Era of Reaction”

This week's discussion will focus on the efforts of grassroots workers to keep unions on an internationalist, militant, and independent course during conservative and unstable times, when pressure pushes labor leaders to support war, austerity and repression. Especially in such periods, unions' efforts "must aim at the emancipation of the downtrodden millions," Marx noted.
