UAW at a Crossroads

The crisis of capitalism and war are leading directly to the rise of fascism and it will not be defeated by the Democrats or bureaucrats who support capitalism and imperialism. Working people need a mass democratic labor party that will oppose imperialist wars and the attacks on workers abroad and at home. The ILWU in the US led the way against the Iraq war in 2008 with a west coast strike. We need similar working-class strike actions in the US as the Italian Si-Cobas, a logistics union that has called for general strike action on December 2. We support global actions to join them as well

No More Labor Imperialism – STOP $75 Million From US NED To AFL-CIO “Solidarity Center” UFCLP Statement

herefore, the AFL-CIO should acknowledge the past anti-labor practices and apologize to trade unionists, worker organizations and their families who have been violently attacked and murdered in attempted coups and other operations and,

Therefore, the AFL-CIO should drop ALL contact with the National Endowment for Democracy and reject the $75 million a year it offers in blood money and,

Therefore, the AFL-CIO shall withdraw the George Meany award from South African Chief Buthelezi for the attacks and murders of hundreds of trade unionists and their families and,

UFCLP STATEMENT ON THE WAR IN UKRAINE: THE MAIN ENEMY IS AT HOME

The US Democrats and Republicans since the collapse of the Soviet Union have been attacking and invading one country after another from Iraq, Syria, Libya and many countries in Africa. They also invaded Afghanistan and were forced to withdraw, another major defeat for US imperialism.

The US, according to Carter’s adviser Brzezinski had trained and armed Osama Bin Laden and other fundamentalists to provoke a Russian invasion in support of a left government. They then helped arm the fundamentalists to overthrow the Russian-supported government. The same has taken place in the encirclement of Russia by the US and NATO. The US and its European allies have expanded NATO to the borders weapons to encircle Russia.

United Fronts, The Working Class & The War In Ukraine- What Is Needed To Defend Working People Globally

The working class faces attacks on all fronts from union-busting, privatization, the covid pandemic, racist attacks,
xenophobia, and the housing crisis. There is also a rise of fascism globally and a growing danger of imperialist war.

The military invasion of Ukraine by Russia and the Putin regime’s response to the US military encirclement of Russia by NATO is now bringing the world closer to a world war.

This panel will look at what a United Front is, how to organize it, and the role of the working class in defending the working class internationally.

It will also look at the role of the US in Ukraine, Eastern Europe and the Russia in the midst of a declining US imperialist empire.
