The Deadliest Year for U.S.-Mexico Border Crossings Occurred during Biden’s Administration

The Strike Is Our Most Powerful Weapon, We Need to Use It against the Police!

Workers have the opportunity and ability to shut down the system. This is why Democrats, Republicans, and even the Squad broke the strike of the railroad workers.

Obama Isn’t Mad about Slogans, He’s Mad We’re Questioning the Police

Obama said that we should steer clear of “snappy slogans” like "defund the police" because it alienates people. But that’s not what Obama’s statements are really about. Obama wants to co-opt and crush the BLM movement because he supports the police and the capitalist system it protects.
