We Won’t Go Back: All Out for Abortion Rights Everywhere Today

All across the country today people will be rallying to defend abortion rights. We must turn this anger into power by joining ranks with our unions and community organizations to shut down our cities and demand “Free, Safe Abortion on Demand For All Everywhere!” In New York, Left Voice will be joining thousands of other working people at Foley Square in Downtown Manhattan at 5pm.

Yesterday, a leaked draft of an opinion by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito revealed what we have all been fearing for months: The Supreme Court is poised to issue an opinion that will explicitly overturn Roe v. Wade. This monumental decision will make abortion illegal or all but illegal in dozens of states across the country as soon as it is announced, making access to an abortion almost impossible for tens of millions of people overnight. This decision is an attack on all people who can get pregnant; in many states they will be forced into illegal and unsafe abortions, expensive trips out of state, or be forced to give birth. Working people, working people of color, and poor people in particular, who often do not have the means to travel several hundred miles to reach a clinic willing to perform an abortion will be most affected. We must act.

For years the Democrats have pretended to be the defenders of abortion rights, but every time they have held the presidency, even when they control both houses of congress, they have failed to pass any legislation that would protect abortion rights. Instead, on their watch, abortion rights have been slowly chipped away for decades, and now the limited rights afforded by Roe are going to be lost. The Democrats are not our allies and It is clear that we cannot rely on the Democratic Party to defend the right to an abortion. Joe Biden has already called on Americans to vote “to elect pro-choice officials this November,” but this already-failed strategy is nothing more than a cynical attempt to co-opt this moment for the benefit of the Democrats. 

We cannot stand by and allow nine unelected judges to decide the fate of so many. Today every one of us, including our unions, churches, and political organizations, must take to the streets, strike in our workplaces, and shut down the cities to unapologetically demand free, safe abortions for all on demand everywhere. 

In this sprit Left Voice will be joining thousands of others today at Foley Square in Downtown Manhattan at 5pm to build the power needed to win.

If you want join us and march with us, email us at [email protected] and we will coordinate with you. 

Free, safe and legal abortion on demand!

Far Right Imposed Shutdown Represents Deeper Crises Only Workers Can Resolve

The United States is on the verge of a government shutdown. The fact that a minority far right in Congress has forced this, largely over disagreements with military spending, shows that the U.S. regime is in a historic crisis. Now more than ever, workers must intervene for their own interests.

Neither Trump nor Biden Represent the Interests of the Striking Workers

Donald Trump skipped the second GOP debate to go to Michigan to speak on the UAW strike. This, one day after Biden became the first U.S. president to walk a picket line, represents the on-going fight between the parties to win influence over the working class.

The Deadliest Year for U.S.-Mexico Border Crossings Occurred during Biden’s Administration

The humanitarian crisis at the border was created by capitalism. Voting for a lesser evil won’t save the Latin American working class; it will take international, political and strategic solidarity across borders to build a combative immigrants’ rights movement.

The Big Three Are Using Layoffs to Punish the UAW and Undermine the Strike

The Big Three are retaliating against the UAW by laying off thousands of its members at plants across the country. Defeating these attacks will require the self organization and mobilization of all the workers.

Biden’s Picket Line Visit Doesn’t Mean He Is On Our Side

President Biden’s visit to the UAW picket line shows the strength of the strike — and why it should remain independent from him and the Democrats.

China’s Rise, ‘Diminished Dependency,’ and Imperialism in Times of World Disorder

In this broad-ranging interview, originally published in LINKS, Trotskyist Fraction member Esteban Mercatante discusses how recent global shifts in processes of capital accumulation have contributed to China’s rise, the new (and old) mechanisms big powers use to plunder the Global South, and its implications for anti-imperialist and working-class struggles today.
