  1. The 2018 Teacher Rebellion

    The 2018 Teacher Rebellion

    An upsurge of mass teachers strikes and protests, unprecedented in the US for over 40 years, erupted in six states across the US between February and June 2018. In West Virginia, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Colorado, Arizona and North Carolina teachers and school workers marched, protested, defied state anti-strike laws, challenged both Democratic and Republican lawmakers and gave voice to the outrage of millions of educators, parents and students over the ongoing destruction of public education and the terrible growth of social inequality. The articles in this pamphlet are a record of this struggle and document the intervention of the Socialist Equality Party which fought at every point to give this movement a conscious political direction.

  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.

  3. The 2019 Workers Rebellion in Matamoros, Mexico

    The 2019 Workers Rebellion in Matamoros, Mexico

    During the first weeks of 2019, tens of thousands of striking workers brought to a halt virtually all the maquiladora manufacturing plants in the industrial Mexican city of Matamoros, just across the US border with Brownsville, Texas. In a remarkable display of class unity and power, workers defied threats of retribution and violence from companies, union thugs, police and the military, and shut down a significant section of the closely-interconnected supply chain in North America. Key to organizing their struggles across different companies and sectors was the formation of rank-and-file strike committees. Daily reports by the World Socialist Web Site played an important role in guiding the struggle and winning broader support.

  4. La rebelión obrera de 2019 en Matamoros, Mexico (Spanish)

    La rebelión obrera de 2019 en Matamoros, Mexico (Spanish)

    Durante las primeras semanas de 2019, decenas de miles de trabajadores hicieron huelga, paralizando la producción de prácticamente todas las maquiladoras manufactureras en la ciudad industrial mexicana de Matamoros, junto a la frontera estadounidense con Brownsville, Texas. En una muestra asombrosa de unidad y poder de clase, los trabajadores desafiaron las amenazas de represalias y violencia de las empresas, los golpeadores sindicales, la policía y el ejército, y frenaron una sección significativa de la estrechamente interconectada cadena de producción en Norteamérica. Debido a la huelga, varias plantas de ensamblaje en México, Estados Unidos y Canadá se quedaron sin volantes y otras partes de auto y se vieron obligadas a suspender o reducir marcadamente la producción.

  5. 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.
