Approaching the central meet-up point, my jaw dropped as I realized that the buses lined up on the streets for blocks and blocks were all rented by protesters, organizations. People who were there to march with us. I stretched my sights a little further and saw up ahead, a forest of tall red flags swaying.

We swiveled our heads to see the folks from Zona Norte filling the street. Zona Norte, the industrial heart of Buenos Aires Province. They were about a thousand strong – workers who’ve led some of the most audacious, combative, and bad ass struggles against foreign and home-grown capitalists taking place anywhere in the country – maybe throughout the continent. At the head of the column were workers and kids holding hands and grasping the banner, “Expropriate Donnelley Now!”
But this was just a fraction of the total forces that came together today under the PTS banner.
The column of over five thousand drumming, chanting, flag-waving, mate-sipping Trotskyist militants, aspirants, and supporters almost circled the entire square at Congreso Plaza, where we gathered before heading toward the Plaza de Mayo.
The PTS youth had a lively band that went on for the course of the 5-hour demonstration (no small feat), leading the crowd in “We’ll take all the plazas and send Obama running home!” and “30,000 detained and disappeared, PRESENTE!” 

Remembering the fighters, the murdered, kidnapped. The disappeared. Lost in the crowd, unaware of north south east west. Surrounded by a sea of comrades.

In Argentina, a Surprise Finish for the Establishment While the Trotskyists Add to Their Congressional Seats

The far-right Javier Milei suffered a setback in Sunday’s elections. But voting the lesser evil won’t deal a definitive blow to the Right. That’s only achieved through building a socialist alternative for the working class.

The New Hollywood McCarthyism Emerging Around Palestine

Over the past week, a new Hollywood McCarthyism has emerged: multiple people in Hollywood have jobs and representation over their support of Palestine. We must denounce and fight these attacks which weaken the movement and scare supporters into silence.

A UAW sign is held next to a "Free Palestine" sign

The UAW Has Called for a Ceasefire. It’s Time for All of Labor to Stand Up.

The UAW International union has joined calls for a ceasefire and is exploring how to divest from Israel. This is a step which should inspire union activists to take up the fight to bring their union into the fight against Israel's attack on Gaza and the struggle against imperialism.

Robert Habeck Wrote a Play Praising a Right-Wing Mass Murderer

Germany's Green vice chancellor strikes many as an idealist who has been struggling with the tough realities of government. Yet before he was a national politician, he wrote a play that opens a window into a dark soul.
