The Supreme Court Will Hear the Texas Abortion Law Today. Where Is the Abortion Rights Movement?

The current leadership of the abortion rights movement has tied the struggle for abortion to the Supreme Court and the Democrats, but that’s a losing strategy.

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.

No Time for Coronavirus Relief, Plenty for Amy Coney Barrett

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has adjourned the Senate until November 9, preventing them from passing a desperately needed coronavirus relief package. The delay is even more atrocious when compared to how quickly Republicans moved to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

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.

But the opposite is the case: we call for a much more profound form of democracy than the United States or any capitalist country can possibly offer.

RBG Is No Hero

Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death is seen by many as a blow to progressive politics. But that doesn’t mean her record on the Supreme Court is unequivocally praiseworthy. 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.
