Online public forum – register for the Zoom webinar – https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_5TsyAaOvTbuJtB1L3uSo_g
The speed and scope of developments following the hideous racist murder of George Floyd sent a shockwave across America that reverberated around the world and compressed years of political developments into days.
In this forum, we will discuss the deep and systemic nature of racism in the USA, and how the massive Black Lives Matter protests have shaken the US ruling class, as well as how the left has responded to the role of the state in this crisis.
Racism, poverty, imperialist war abroad and brutal police repression at home cannot be ended by unorganized spontaneous actions, however militant: what is necessary is a multi-ethnic and multi-racial workers’ party that can champion the interests of victims of racial oppression as well as all others oppressed by life under capitalism.
