Support grows in Chicago for a new approach to police accountability

CHICAGO- This city is the national epicenter of police torture of African American men. So, it’s not surprising tens of thousands have taken to the streets following the police execution of George Floyd. “The wounds run deep here. Many protests make this an uprising,” Jazmine Salas, 28, co-chair of the...

Black environmentalists are organizing against worldwide injustice

“I can’t breathe.” These were among the final words that George Floyd and Eric Garner gasped before their deaths at the hands of white police officers. That plea has become part of the current rallying cry for racial justice and an end to police brutality in the U.S. But for...

socialism in usa

Socialism is a common-sense path to a fairer, more prosperous and more democratic USA. Socialism is also a desperate necessity as capitalism and its unrelenting drive for profits threaten to make our planet uninhabitable. Working families in America – the 99% - between us create all the products and services that make our country the richest nation in the history of humankind. It doesn’t make sense that these collectively produced resources are owned and controlled by a tiny handful of billionaires. The fight for socialism is a dynamic process to fulfill the vision of a future of peace, justice and fairness for our nation and our world.

BY: Illinois Communist Party| July 22, 2020

  The City of Chicago is united in rejecting the provocation of the Trump administration in sending hundreds of militarized, highly armed secret-police gunmen into our streets—in the midst of a public health crisis and economic catastrophe. The Communist Party of Illinois condemns this cynical ploy by Donald Trump to divert attention from the criminal failure of his administration to safeguard the well-being of America’s people. The result of bringing more firearms into our city, supposedly to deal with gun violence, will inevitably be more blood in our streets, more spread of disease, more suffering for hundreds of thousands already...

Speeches
BY: Joshua Bacopulos| July 28, 2020

  “My commitment to mutual aid or at least the urge to help others predates my studies and activity as a communist and my membership in the Communist Party,” said James, a member of a local Communist Party club here. He recently volunteered to drive to Gallup, N.M., to deliver 600 first aid kits to the Navajo Nation Food Distribution Program. He says that it is his socialist politics that came out of “class studies, internal discourse, and my work with the Communist Party,” while the decision to help the Navajo Nation’s program came out of “living all of my...

    I am writing to you, knowing that you will probably delete this email instantly, to express my opinions and ideas on communism. In a picture from your website, here, you portray two young boys, one with a sign saying “Youngsters need a future too”, and the other saying “Pro young future”....

    Hi Braden, Before I get to your allegations of censorship, I want to clear up a couple of misconceptions. First, we do not seek to rule a single-party state.  Socialism in the United States will almost certainly involve multiple parties, sharing a basic vision of society even though they differ on how to best implement those principles (just as most Democrats and Republicans basically agree on capitalism).  Second, socialism doesn't mean that everyone makes the same amount of money.  It means that the working class, which includes everyone from fast food workers to doctors and engineers, will receive the full value that its labor produces. Since we'll no longer have to hand over half of the value we produce to...
