Resistance, democratic revolution and the midterms

 

How does the working class build power? By standing on the sidelines, passing out pamphlets and denouncing the bourgeoisie? Or by joining in the major political struggles of the day and striving to put its ‘proletarian imprint’ on the fight for democracy? In 1905, during an insurgency against the tsar, Lenin argued for the latter. Today, as popular resistance rises against the reactionary regime in our own country, we do the same. In the fight against the Trump-GOP regime, the working class must lead! Our webinar begins with an examination of Lenin’s Two Tactics and examines lessons that might be drawn for today fight for a united front against the Trump agenda.
