The world is a better place because of V. I. Lenin. An outstanding 20th-century working-class leader and revolutionary, he helped change history. The revolution in St. Petersburg, which Lenin helped lead in 1917, opened the door to a new era.

The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic are so widespread and multifaceted that many find it difficult to find a way to grasp what is really going on, to find an approach from which to understand what’s happening. We are affected by loss, grief, anxiety, and stress.

What we all know for sure is that we are all going through a time of great change. We find our footing in the certainty that the...

I live in a low- to middle-income neighborhood in Prince William County, Virginia, a Washington D.C. exurb. This is a majority-minority working-class area; almost all my neighbors are African American or Central American, with many adults being first-generation immigrants from El Salvador, Honduras, or Guatemala.

NOTE: In February, three organizations — MADRE, Women Cross DMZ, and Grassroots Global Justice Alliance — convened a group of 23 women and gender-nonconforming people from across the United States in order to engage in a cross-movement dialogue on our collective work against militarism and war in order to examine, challenge, and reimagine US foreign policy.

While our convening occurred before...

Since our beginnings almost 20 years ago, CODEPINK has been using the slogan “Healthcare Not Warfare.” Never before has that rallying cry been more critical than today, as we face a health crisis of epic proportions.

Facing this terrifying pandemic, we see the hollowness of our national defense preparedness and the havoc we have wrecked across the world. The world’s superpower is not capable of...

China has been able to contain the virus, while the confirmed cases of infected persons and death toll continue to rise in the United States. Only a system which puts people before profits will...

There are specific reasons as to why Marxists ought to appreciate this movement. Electoral politics...
