Best Socialist Videos on the Web
Soon after we launched Left Voice, our videos were acclaimed for their high quality, straight-fowardness and sharp politics. Our videos feature workers’ struggles, mobilizations in defense of our rights and key battles against all kinds of oppression.
We were there with you marching on the streets for women’s rights:
We helped the campaign for union recognition at the Hilton Hotel in Stamford with videos like this one:
And we provided on-the-ground coverage of the Migrant Caravan marching for weeks to seek asylum in the U.S.:
Against the Current
We do not pretend to be unbiased. We are socialists, activists, workers, students and fighters. We are immigrants, queer, Black, youth, women. Our articles are written by workers in the class struggle, our videos give a voice to those who have been silenced. From Mexico to New York, Argentina, Germany, Los Angeles, DC, Brazil and many other cities our reporters are involved in the struggles.
We challenge the cops, capitalists, imperialists, bigots and bureaucrats without fear. We fight the Republicans and the Democratic Party politicians who continuously attack the working class and oppressed people. We are socialists in words and in action.
But there is only so much we can do without financial support. As an independent socialist media, we don’t run ads on our website and we do not (and will never) receive funds from any company or government. All contributors, members of the editorial board, photographers, correspondents and video editors work on a solidarity basis. Left Voice is, above all, a militant project.
Social media algorithms and mainstream media moguls block out dissenting voices. We are convinced that our perspective matters, and we want to elbow our way into the public arena of ideas.
A Stream of Militant, Left Voices
So we’re doubling down on videos. Beginning on January 2019, we are launching Left Voice Stream, a project that will increase the coverage of workers’ struggles and the many expression of our daily fight against capitalism.
Most importantly, we are launching a political education series on Marxism, socialist theory and revolutionary politics. We will address in a down-to-earth fashion questions like ‘What is socialism?’, ‘Why the working class?’ and ‘How socialists fight against gender, race and LGBTQ oppression’.
Support Left Voice
You can be part of this project in different ways. The simplest way to join our efforts is by giving us financial support. Any contribution will be very appreciated.
We need $5,000 to kick-start this project. Most of the money will go to the purchase of new equipment, payment of travel expenses and a small stipend for our main video editor, Luigi Morris so that he can work less and dedicate more time to Left Voice.
Your contribution is critical.
