THE MARXISTS HAVE A SAY
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.
