Convention Greetings: Angela Davis

Greetings sent to the 30th National Convention of the Communist Party USA in Chicago, June 13-15, 2014 by Angela Y. Davis.

I wish you much success as you collectively engage with a range of issues related to the current economic and environmental crises and to the struggle for a democracy extricated from the exploitative and racist context of capitalism.  As the system of capitalism has produced an ever-increasing and thus insatiable need for profits, this process is leading to the rapid deterioration of the very conditions of life on the planet.  Our movements must reflect a deep understanding of the idea that capitalism, if allowed to move along its logical trajectory, may ultimately lead to global death.  The alternative trajectory — the way of life — is socialism.  

Thank you for keeping the ideas and ideals of socialism alive.  It is our only hope for the future.
