The Breakdown of Capitalism and the Fight for Socialism in the United States: Program of the Socialist Equality Party
$2.00
Add to Cart
A fighting revolutionary program for the American working class, adopted by the First National Congress of the Socialist Equality Party in August 2010, this document lays out an analysis of the global economic crisis, its political implications and the tasks of the working class. The SEP program outlines a series of basic social rights for jobs, education and culture, health care and democratic rights—all of which are under attack within the current capitalist system—and can only be won by the mobilization of the working class.

The Detroit Symphony Strike and the Defense of Culture in the US
$2.50
Add to Cart
Since April 2011 when the musicians of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra reluctantly returned to work after a bitter six-month strike, orchestras in more than a dozen American cities have faced lockouts and threats of bankruptcy.

Calling for the re-emergence of the “socially engaged artist,” Arts Editor of the World Socialist Web Site, David Walsh, places the Detroit Symphony musicians’ strike in its historical and cultural context. He addresses how the place of culture has changed in the past half century, and on what basis art and culture should be defended.

Thirty Years Since the PATCO Strike
$3.00
Add to Cart
In this essay WSWS writer Tom Mackaman examines the significance for the working class of the 1981 strike by PATCO air traffic controllers in the US.

The mass firing of the PATCO strikers by US President Ronald Reagan marked the definitive end of the period of relative class compromise and social reform that had prevailed in the US and other advanced industrial countries since the end of World War II. From that moment on, the capitalist class has carried out a relentless offensive to roll back the gains the working class realized over decades of struggle. Learn More

The Defense of Culture and the Crisis in Detroit
$3.00
Add to Cart
The fight to defend the artwork at the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) is of the highest importance to young people and workers in Detroit, across the United States and internationally. In threatening the collection of one of the premier art museums the ruling elite is demonstrating it antagonism to everything of value in the development of human thought and culture.

This pamphlet contains two important statements growing out of the fight to mobilize the working class against the sale of the DIA artworks by Detroit’s unelected emergency manager. They examine the historical background of the current crisis in the city and demonstrate that the defense of art and culture requires a struggle against a social system, capitalism, that is run entirely in the interests of a handful of very wealthy people.
