They were joined by a solidarity delegation from International Women’s Strike Connecticut, members of the community, and fellow workers from other unionized workplaces in the city.

The dozens of workers, both women and men and of all races, picketed under the banner of Equality. They demanded equality for immigrants, equality for women, and equality for black workers, and they chanted for hours in Spanish, Creole, and English. The fight for women’s liberation is a fight for equality, it is also a workers’ fight.

This was a mobilization of the working class fighting for a contract but knowing that the struggle for women’s rights is intimately bound up in the fight against capitalist exploitation.

Throughout the world workers are in motion, in the Spanish State, in Argentina, in Uruguay, workers are striking and marching, and they’re marching in Stamford too.

The New York Times Is Wrong: Trans Kids Need Support, Not “Gender Skepticism”

While state legislatures across the country have launched an unprecedented attack on trans youth, the New York Times saw fit to publish a pair of articles calling on liberals to make space for “gender skeptical” ideas among parents. They are wrong. Trans kids need more support, not gender skepticism.

Class Struggle Solidarity and the Trans Movement (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love My Class)

While writers at The New York Times staged a 24-hour walkout on Thursday, some trans people expressed skepticism about showing solidarity for workers at a publication that distributes so much transphobia. A trans socialist explains why queer solidarity with the labor movement is so important, even when workers might not yet be taking up our struggles.

In a Win for Reproductive Justice, Michigan Voters Reject Abortion Ban

Michigan’s Proposal 3 restores some of Roe’s protections in a mass repudiation of the undemocratic Supreme Court. This is a win for abortion rights, but the movement for reproductive justice must demand more than what Michigan had under Roe.

The Antidote to Midterm Despair Is Socialist Feminism

Among feminists, many are driven to the polls by the attacks on reproductive rights and trans youth. But so many go to the polls reluctantly, for lack of another solution. The antidote to midterm despair is socialist feminism.

Tyre Nichols, and all victims of police brutality, must be mourned. But we can't stop fighting or give in to despair — we have to build an independent political party that clashes with the capitalists physically, politically, and ideologically.
