Hillary Clinton’s New Cold War

With Donald Trump’s campaign in shambles, Hillary Clinton is racing toward the Presidency. But her rhetoric contains a danger of deepening hostility toward Russia and dangerous saber-rattling over the Middle East.

Trotsky and Gramsci on Revolutionary Strategy

“Whereas other writers often see these two Marxists in conflict, Albamonte and Maiello view them not as adversaries, but as comrades-in-arms who have points of convergence alongside their differences.” Marxist historian Doug Greene discusses the main topics presented in a new book by two national leaders of the Partido de los Trabajadores Socialistas (PTS).

The Impact of Brexit

British economist Michael Roberts writes about the immediate and long-term consequences of the Brexit.

Turkey Hit Again by Attacks

The recent airport attack in Istanbul is the eleventh attack since mid-2015. At the same time, the Erdogan government has redoubled repression throughout the country and heightened the war against the Kurdish population.

Voices from the Rhodes Must Fall Campaign

The Rhodes Must Fall movement (#RhodesMustFall), sparked by a protest action at the University of Cape Town on March 9, 2015, spread quickly to other university campuses in South Africa. It has been echoed by a campaign at Oxford University to bring down a statue of the Victorian imperialist Cecil Rhodes, attracting enormous public attention.

New Year, Old Struggles: The Strike for a Collective Agreement in the Logistics Sector

Since 2008, the logistics sector in Italy has been the epicenter of a wave of struggles led by a workforce mainly manned by immigrants. These struggles have at times been severely repressed by the employers (with the support of heavy deployment of police), but have also gained significant victories. These victories are not only to be celebrated by the workers in question, rather their meaning goes beyond the logistic sector and speaks to all of us.

No One Is Free Until We’re All Free

The Downtown Boys’ “Full Communism” was one of the most talked-about punk albums of 2015. NME called it the best debut album of the year. It also happens to be one of the most subversive albums made in any genre in recent years. With songs like “100% Inheritance Tax,” the group isn’t shy about putting radical politics on the table. We spoke with bandmembers Victoria Ruiz and Joey DeFrancesco about organizing hotel workers, file sharing, and dismantling the capitalist system.
