  3. The Truth Behind the Bankruptcy of Detroit

    The Truth Behind the Bankruptcy of Detroit

    The bankruptcy of Detroit - the largest municipal bankruptcy case in US history - was a political conspiracy and a social crime, designed to set a national precedent in the looting of employee pensions and public assets. The Workers Inquiry into the Bankruptcy of Detroit and the Attack on the DIA and Pensions, held February 15, 2014 at Wayne State University, exposed the political, social and economic forces behind the bankruptcy. The booklet contains reports on the social and historical context, the record of political conspiracy involving state and local authorities and the Obama administration, the legal aspects, the rape of the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the economic parasitism behind the decline of the once-powerful industrial city.

  7. The war comes home: Race, class & police violence in America

    The war comes home: Race, class & police violence in America

    This pamphlet draws the connection between the growth of police violence in the United States and the erection of a police military intelligence apparatus that operates without any legal or constitutional constraints. There is a parallel between intensifying police violence at home and the pursuit of war overseas.

    The growth of social inequality is at the heart of the destruction of democratic rights, and as such is directed at the entire working class - black, white, Hispanic and immigrant alike. Obama, the president of "Hope and Change", bolsters the American elite's War on Terror, imposing ever greater restrictions on fundamental rights; on the other hand, the administration relies on proponents of identity politics, such as Democratic Party operative Al Sharpton, to confuse and divide the working class.

  9. The political significance of the US oil workers strike

    The political significance of the US oil workers strike

    This pamphlet contains a selection of articles first published by the World Socialist Web Site on the strike by US oil workers that began in February 1, 2015. They are vital reading for all wishing to gain a deeper understanding of this significant movement of the working class in the heart of world capitalism. The development of this strike, after decades in which the unions have attempted to suppress the class struggle, is a symptom of immense social tensions in the United States. It reflects the deep resentment felt by working people over declining living standards under conditions where the stock market and corporate profits are at record levels. Learn More

  10. The great autoworkers struggle of 2015: Lessons of the rank-and-file revolt against the UAW

    The great autoworkers struggle of 2015: Lessons of the rank-and-file revolt against the UAW

    In the fall of 2015, autoworkers in the United States rebelled against the attempt of the United Auto Workers (UAW) to force through sellout contracts at Ford, General Motors and Fiat Chrysler. This eruption of class struggle, in opposition to the decades-long corporate assault on the jobs and living standards of workers, shocked and astounded UAW officials, the media establishment and the Obama administration. In defiance of the attempts by the media and big business politicians to portray America as a society riven by racial divisions, the autoworkers’ struggle pushed to the forefront the fundamental class issues. Black, white and immigrant workers and workers of all generations came together in a common fight to defend jobs, wages and working conditions. Contained in this pamphlet are a series of articles republished from the World Socialist Web Site outlining the course of this struggle. They examine the political, historical, theoretical and practical issues raised by the autoworkers’ battle. Order 5 or more for $3.00/copy Learn More
