Class Struggle Solidarity and the Trans Movement (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love My Class)

While writers at The New York Times staged a 24-hour walkout on Thursday, some trans people expressed skepticism about showing solidarity for workers at a publication that distributes so much transphobia. A trans socialist explains why queer solidarity with the labor movement is so important, even when workers might not yet be taking up our struggles.

In a Win for Reproductive Justice, Michigan Voters Reject Abortion Ban

Michigan’s Proposal 3 restores some of Roe’s protections in a mass repudiation of the undemocratic Supreme Court. This is a win for abortion rights, but the movement for reproductive justice must demand more than what Michigan had under Roe.

First We Mourn, Then We Organize: A Letter to Weary Black Organizers Who Have Had Enough

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.
