STATEMENT ON THE MURDER OF GEORGE FLOYD

The Connolly Youth Movement is shocked to see the video footage of a police officer kneeling on an innocent man and choking him to death while he called for help. This is a tragedy, but it is no accident. It is part of the law enforcement and justice system in the United States, which dates back to slavery. It has maintained this system, and ethnic minorities are imprisoned and murdered in wild disproportion to population amounts. We stand in solidarity and send our deepest condolences to the friends and family of George Floyd. We express our solidarity with the protestors, who have no means to express themselves, other than the destruction of the institutions that oppress and murder them.

We...

The Communist Party USA joins with the people of Minneapolis in demanding the immediate arrest and prosecution of the cops responsible for the murder of George Floyd.

The horrifying eight-minute evidence, streamed around the world, is clear and undisguisable. Make no mistake: the murder of George Floyd was a public execution by the police. The refusal to immediately make arrests has...

I have seen several posts on Facebook and on TV of health-care workers giving accounts of what it’s like on the front lines of ICUs, emergency departments, and 911 call centers. Many, generously and compassionately, attest to knowing others who have it worse than they do. But they also speak of not having adequate protective clothing and equipment, of trying to make do with plastic trash bags for...

As COVID-19 infiltrates cities and towns one after another, steadily destroying lives in its wake, it is hard not to notice the contradictory nature of the phenomenon: the affliction clearly is global, but there is no effective global system to control it.

The World Health Organization is supposed to create such a system, but it has been weakened by member states not paying their share. We...

A lot of hope—and rightly so—is being placed in what a post-Trump country and world might look like. And yes, almost anything would be better. (As a popular lawn sign reads, “2020: Any Functioning Adult.”) Proposals for union-friendly organizing rights, student debt relief, a wealth tax, a green infrastructure bill (if not a Green New Deal), a rejoining of the Paris Climate Accord undertaken by a...

The following is an interview by AKEL, the Progressive Party of Working People in Cyprus, with Rossana Cambron and Joe Sims, co-chairs of the CPUSA.

Q: The United States is one of, if not the richest countries in the world and yet it cannot support its health-care system. What’s to blame; is it the fact that the health-care system is mainly in the hands of the private sector?

A: After the...

A group of 300 lawmakers from two dozen countries have signed a letter sent on Wednesday, May 13 to the heads of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), calling on these institutions to forgive the respective debt of the world’s poorest countries, and to step up their financial support for these nations, in response to the global COVID-19 crisis.

“The temporary...

Dear comrades,

Working people of all backgrounds are uniting around issues such as racist violence,  health care, climate change, women’s reproductive rights, labor and immigrant rights against the neo-fascist Trump agenda. At the same time, thousands of young workers and students have taken to online platforms during the Covid-19 lockdown and are demanding socialist-oriented reforms and...

We learned what Dr. Williams J. Barber II has been preaching: “This virus is teaching us that from now on, living wages, guaranteed health care for all, unemployment and labor rights are not far-left issues but issues of right versus wrong and life versus death.”

Here are lessons we have learned.
