As election day draws near and the race between Clinton and Trump tightens, the whole world is watching the US elections. The elections in one of the most prominent imperialist nations are central to international politics and have international ramifications, deciding what countries will be bombed, which coups will be supported, which Presidents will be ousted and how many immigrants will be deported.

Argentina knows the effects of US intervention first hand. The CIA backed military dictatorship that killed an estimated 30,000 people.Throughout the 90’s, the US dominated IMF oversaw cuts to education and health care as well as privatization of state run companies, such as nationalized oil and railways.The intervention of US corporations continues to be a reality today: from Chevron’s purchase of the largest oil reserve to Monsanto’s new Seed Pact that would lead to a dramatic reduction of jobs. Under President Macri, Argentina has opened the market to foreign capital, particularly to US capital, which will make billions off of speculation.

These policies will continue to thrive under a Clinton or Trump administration. This is why militants from the Socialist Workers Party (Partido de Trabajadores Socialistas) are joining the #NotWithThem campaign. From workers to students to political leaders, these Argentinians are not with Clinton or Trump. Unlike both Clinton and Trump— and even Sanders, PTS politicians get the same salary as a teacher and donate the rest to workers’ struggles. Check out the reasons why PTS militants are #NotWithThem

The Debt Ceiling Agreement is an Attack on the Working Class and on the Planet

Joe Biden and Kevin McCarthy’s deal to raise the debt ceiling is a handout to the military industrial complex and an attack on the working class and the planet. Rather than just raising the debt ceiling, a relatively standard practice that allows the U.S. to pay the bills for spending that already happened, this debt ceiling deal caps discretionary spending on everything but “defense” and fast-tracks the Mountain Valley Pipeline.
