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

In Standoff Over Cop City, Police Are the Real Terrorists

For over two years, the protests and occupations against a police training center in Atlanta, Georgia flew under the radar of the mainstream press. Now, after the police murder of land defender Manuel Teran and the arrest of 19 protesters on charges of domestic terrorism, the standoff has gained national attention. But in the battle to defend the Weelaunee Forest and the people of Atlanta from the development of the massive “Cop City” training center, it is the Atlanta Police Department and the state that have been acting like terrorists.
