THE MARXISTS HAVE A SAY

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

There’s some revo­lu­tion else­where, mean­while. The Party for So­cial­ism and Lib­er­a­tion — which de­scribes it­self as a “rev­o­lu­tion­ary Marx­ist party in the United States” — will re­lease Tues­day its “So­ci­ety for the Many Man­i­festo of the Peo­ple’s Congress of Re­sis­tance.”

The San Fran­cisco-based group plans to of­fer a “bold and clear pro­gram for peo­ple’s power, eman­ci­pa­tion, equal­ity and a so­ci­ety to meet hu­man needs” — to be capped off by a grass-roots “Peo­ple’s Congress” event at Howard Univer­sity in Wash­ing­ton in mid-Septem­ber.

They too are ready to rum­ble. Or­ga­niz­ers say they re­ject Pres­i­dent Trump’s “re­ac­tionary agenda,” “Demo­cratic Party elites” and “15,000 lob­by­ists who con­sti­tute a shadow gov­ern­ment in Wash­ing­ton,” the or­ga­niz­ers say.

“With­out a rev­o­lu­tion­ary vi­sion, change will not take a rev­o­lu­tion­ary di­rec­tion. Re­sis­tance will re­main rud­der­less, an ex­er­cise in ac­tivism for its own sake, or it will be co-opted into a ves­sel for the po­lit­i­cal elites,” the party rea­sons.
