Witnesses to the violence in Charlottesville

Three ISO members describe what happened when a neo-Nazi attacked their contingent in Charlottesville--and the lessons they've drawn going forward.

We can't ignore the Nazis

Berkeley's mayor advised people to stay away from the counterprotest against the far right on August 27. Here's why he's wrong.

Not just signing cards

In the wake of the UAW's loss at Nissan, it's clear that labor's dominant strategies for winning union representation aren't working.

They don't belong in museums

To put these Confederate monuments in a museum would only serve to reinforce their status as symbols of white supremacy.

Resistencia antiimperialista

Una oposición efectiva a Trump y a la derecha debe desafiar no sólo su agenda doméstica, sino además sus planes para reforzar el imperialismo.


Taking on the right

Tear down their symbols

The flag of the Confederacy and monuments to its leaders lionize slavery. Taking them down is part of opposing a racist system.

Dallas won't stay silent

Thousands turned out in Dallas to stand in solidarity with Charlottesville and demand the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee.

How Boston turned the tide

Thousands flood the streets of Boston to protest the Nazis

Tens of thousands of people mobilized in Boston in a magnificent display of solidarity that sent the far-right and neo-Nazi forces packing.

Berkeley is ready for the right

Anti-racists from all over the Bay Area and beyond are coming together to confront the right when it rallies in Berkeley August 27.

Don't glorify either war "hero"

By equating George Washington and Robert E. Lee, Trump wants to whitewash racism, but that doesn't mean we revere Washington.

Action against the far right

Anti-racists mobilizing against the neo-Nazis in Berkeley are calling for a National Weekend of Solidarity on August 26-27.

Meeting terror with solidarity

The right's deadly violence in Charlottesville sparked protests against the fascists and solidarity with the victims across the country.

Their hate won't go unopposed

Far-right demonstrators rally on the Boston Common

As right-wing forces organize for another hate-filled protest in Boston, it's crucial for anti-racist activists to unite in opposition.

The rats and their ringleader

The racists who turned out in Charlottesville want to inspire terror--and they are being aided in their cause by the president of the United States.

Rallying for a bombed mosque

More than 1,000 people turned out to show their support for a suburban Minneapolis mosque that was bombed earlier this month.

No more Charlottesvilles

We have to continue to unite the struggle against right-wing racists to stop them before they are able to kill again.

Unite and fight far-right terror

Charlottesville ripped the mask off the right to reveal what we face--but the angry response shows the potential for mass protest to defeat this cancer.

White (House) supremacists

If the far right has been emboldened to spew its bigotry, they have the racists of the Trump administration to thank for it.

Charlottesville: A call to action

The far right's rally in Virginia exposed the deadly truth about the bigots nurtured under Trump, but their hate is being met by a wave of solidarity.

Losing the battle and the war

The Democratic Party has continuously ceded ground on abortion rights. The left needs to take a different approach.

The broke-on-purpose subways

The starving of the transit system in the richest city in the world is as an indictment of a greedy and shortsighted ruling class.

Chicago mechanics vote "no"

Chicago mechanics remain on the picket line

Striking mechanics at car dealerships around Chicago rejected the dealers' most recent offer and are standing firm on the picket line.

Dayton teachers ready to strike

This Ohio city could see its first teachers' strike in 24 years as a battle over the conditions in public schools comes to a head.

Will Trump last the year?

Political leaders and corporate executives are fleeing the Trump White House like the proverbial sinking ship. But the vessel may not go down just yet.

John Kelly is no "moderate"

Don't expect Trump’s new chief of staff to bring "nuance" or "moderation" to the White House--he's a fanatical reactionary.

Students dump a racist symbol

South Burlington High School students faced a racist backlash in their fight to change the school's sports team name--but they won.

Maryland, oh my! Maryland

With Confederate monuments coming down across the South, it's time that University of Maryland got rid of its racist song.

Nuclear bully on the rampage

Donald Trump threatens North Korea from his golf club in New Jersey

Donald Trump dramatically raised the danger of war by threatening "fire and fury" against North Korea, stunning regional allies and rivals alike.

Roots of the nuclear arms race

For decades, the world held its breath as nuclear-armed powers contemplated the annihilation of their rivals--and themselves.

Ten facts about the Iraq War

As Trump threatens new wars, it's worth remembering several things about the 2003 drive to war in Iraq--and the aftermath.

An anti-imperialist resistance

Those who want to oppose Donald Trump and the right wing have to challenge not just their domestic agenda, but their program for U.S. imperialism.

Her uncompromising fight

Chelsea Manning has played a vital role in exposing the lies at the heart of U.S. wars and American imperialism.

A "lesser evil" in Venezuela?

The left approaches the crisis in Venezuela as a binary choice: with the government or the opposition? But there's another option.

We shouldn't narrow the fight

Too many supporters of "universalist" class politics argue as if working-class struggle is separate from struggles against oppression.

They don't give a flying f*#k

Airlines are cramming more and more passengers onto each flight
