  1. Flint: A Crime of Capitalism

    Flint: A Crime of Capitalism

    On April 25, 2014, the mayor of Flint, Michigan, Dayne Walling, pushed a button ending the city’s 50-year reliance on the Detroit water system and shifting instead to water from the heavily polluted Flint River. This act set in motion an environmental and health disaster with few precedents in American history. In addition to being poisoned, losing unborn babies, enduring an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease that killed at least 12 people, and having a generation of children who face lifelong neurological damage, the population as a whole has suffered immense trauma and stress, not to mention the collapse of their home values. This disaster, presided over by both Democratic and Republican politicians, contains enormous lessons. It was analyzed at every stage by the World Socialist Web Site. This pamphlet presents a selection from the record of the WSWS as the crisis unfolded. Learn More

  2. Fight plant closures: The case for rank-and-file factory committees

    Fight plant closures: The case for rank-and-file factory committees

    The announcement by General Motors in November 2018 of the closure of five factories in North America and the elimination of some 15,000 jobs is a frontal attack on autoworkers and the entire working class. The jobs massacre is the spearhead for a new restructuring, threatening the jobs of millions around the world. The consequences of GM's closure of plants in Detroit, Michigan; Lordstown, Ohio; and Oshawa, Ontario will be devastating for autoworkers and these communities. This attack calls for a unified international response by the working class. Central to this is the formation of rank-and-file factory committees, independent from the corporatist trade unions, to link autoworkers with other sections of the working class coming into struggles, such as teachers, Amazon workers, steelworkers, and United Parcel Service workers. This pamphlet outlines the central political and historical issues in this fight and makes the case for rank-and-file factory committees, independent of the unions, and a socialist political movement of the working class.
