Ireland and Argentina Won Abortion Rights through Struggle. Protecting Our Rights Here Won’t Be Any Different
Abortion rights are under threat in the United States. As the abortion movements in Ireland and Argentina have shown, the right to free, safe, and legal abortions can only be won through combative action and mass mobilization in the streets.

Representation Isn’t Liberation: The Case of Amy Coney Barrett
Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court has raised alarms. But the problem with "ACB" is deeper than Barrett and her right-wing politics. The problem is that unelected government officials have such despotic control over the policy that affects our lives.

The Democrats Did Nothing to Stop Amy Coney Barrett’s Confirmation
Yesterday, Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in to the Supreme Court. The Democrats put up little resistance, proving that they are the party of the ruling class. We can’t count on the Democrats or the Supreme Court to secure our rights.

Their Democracy and Ours
The "greatest democracy in the world" is in crisis. The U.S. Constitution, once treated as a kind of holy text, is now seen as it is: a document written by enslavers and large landowners to protect their privileges.

From racial justice to native sovereignty to prisoners’ rights, RBG’s rulings show a deep lack of care for the exploited and oppressed. Moreover, she was a member of an institution that has always been used as a tool against working class people.
