As Communists, we are charged with building unity of the whole working class. In the aftermath of welfare reform and with continued corporate downsizing, poverty is deep in times of plenty.

Women and Socialism

When our topic is "women and socialism," should we speak about the past or the future? We Communists look to the future-socialism. And we have theory (Marxism) as well as our own experiences in political work, to draw on as we plan and one day bring about our socialism, our own socialist society.

The impact of the Bush administration policies plus new cuts in the safety net in Connecticut are leaving many families stranded.

Working Families Shouldn't Pay for Big Business' Crisis
