Every economic crisis destroys not only the products that have been created, but also the productive forces that were used to create them.

In Marx is Back, a young Argentine worker begins to read the Communist Manifesto and dreams about meeting Marx. The mini series takes place in modern-day Argentina, where workers bear the brunt of the economic crisis.

In this episode, the 2008 crisis hits Argentina and the workers at Martin’s factory are facing suspensions and layoffs.

These videos were produced by the PTS (Socialist Workers Party) of Argentina in 2013.


Subtitles available.

These videos have been used to discuss Marxism in unions and classrooms. If you use them, we would love to hear about how it went. Email us at [email protected]

The IMF Is a Weapon Against Women — They Have the Power to Fight Against It

The International Monetary Fund, based in Washington, has a very particular gender perspective. The adjustment plans it negotiates with the governments of debtor countries fall on the backs of working people, and it is women from the poorest households who are most affected. These effects are universal across the globe. This article uses Argentina to make the case.
