Left Voice is proud to announce that on May 1 we will be launching a newly redesigned version of our website. This redesign will make our website sleeker, with a new front page designed to highlight the most important articles across every region and topic we regularly cover.  No more scrolling through pages of articles just to find the one you’re looking for! We will also be launching a multimedia section and Synapse, a special section for socialist healthcare workers.

We began our political project in the U.S. several years ago with the hypothesis that more and more people across the U.S. were seeing the failures of neoliberalism and capitalism and were becoming more interested in socialism. Our aim was to use our publication to rebuild the Trotskyist movement in the U.S., after years of centrist degeneration. Taking our inspiration from Vladimir Lenin, Iskra, and the long history of communist newspapers we have, since our inception, placed the website at the center of our political work.

We are proud of the work that we have achieved through the website and to have been able to give a space for leftists, activists, and workers to share their experiences and debate the way forward. We are also proud that we have been able to share articles from our sister sites all around the world, and we are also proud that they have shared our stories. 

But, most importantly, we are proud of you, the audience that we’ve been able to build. We are proud that we received over a million hits last year and that our articles have been discussed and debated in reading groups, Facebook pages, and Twitter posts. We are proud that many of our readers have become writers and editors for Left Voice

But there is more work to do and we are not resting on any laurels. Joe Biden is president, the Coronavirus pandemic still rages, an economic crisis decimates the most vulnerable, and imperialist tensions continue to ramp up. Now, more than ever, we need your help. We need you to help us cover these struggles around the country and the world, and we need you to help us fight back the forces of liberalism as they try and co-opt our movements. 

On May 1, we hope that you join us in checking out our new site (don’t worry, the same url will work — no need to update your bookmarks!) and think about how you can help us build in the weeks, months, and years to come. Is there a struggle in your workplace? A movement in your community? We want to cover it. And we want you to be a part of it.

What the Movement for Palestine Can Learn from the Rutgers Encampment Deal

The Gaza solidarity encampment at Rutgers New Brunswick ended in a deal between the administration and a negotiations team at the camp. It’s been a highly controversial decision. The experience at Rutgers shows the need for a truly democratic, bottom-up fight for Palestine.

Why Won’t PSC-CUNY Stand with Palestine Now?

While other higher education unions are going on strike in defense of their workers and against the genocide in Gaza, the bureaucratic leadership of PSC-CUNY just crushed a resolution calling on the university to divest from Israel and to drop the charges against Palestinian activists arrested on April 30.

Attack on Pro-Palestinian Protestors at UMich Latest Example of Democrats Defending Israel’s Genocide in Gaza

Capitalist apologists from the Democratic Party have chosen their business partners in Israel’s far-right government over Palestinian lives. In Ann Arbor, those same so-called “progressive” Democrats decided to bring felony charges against protestors earlier this week, encouraging harsh police violence against the University of Michigan encampment.
