A war crime in progress

Israel’s attack on and invasion of Gaza is a war crime in progress. The Palestinian struggle for self-determination desperately needs the solidarity of people of conscience from around the world. This global boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement must expose every instance of Israeli racism and colonialism while seeking to challenge the massive amounts of American economic and diplomatic support that make Israel’s project possible.

Lifting up the Bay Area

For working class people in the Bay Area, the fight for a living wage is about more than the minimum wage–it’s an existential struggle. The house flippers and hedge-fund-fueled real estate developers want to drive all working people out of Oakland, San Francisco and every other city where they want to take their racist, gentrifying crusade. We need to win a living wage to stop them–and we need a movement to win that wage.

Rockets and the Gaza resistance

Israel claims its assaults on Gaza are a defensive response, but there’s really no comparison between the rockets of Hamas and the missiles of Israel.

Socialism connects the dots

Some 1,450 people from across the U.S. and beyond attended Socialism 2014 in Chicago over June 26-29. This year’s attendance topped last year’s by more than 100 people–and an expanded schedule allowed close to 150 sessions offered during the four-day event. But more important than attendance figures were the struggles represented at Socialism 2014: Palestinian rights, LGBT equality, the labor movement, anti-racism, education justice, women’s rights and the environment, to name just some.

Emergency Protest for Palestine

The Israeli government is carrying out collective punishment of Palestinians after the death of three teenage settlers. In recent days, Israel has carried out collective punishment — a war crime — against Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, while Israeli officials have fomented a racist hysteria among Israelis, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu referring to Palestinians as “human animals.”

Join us at this protest to demand an end to Israel’s collective punishment of Palestinians!
