  • The struggle of our lives: Coronavirus and capitalist crisis

    In a new and dangerous twist to the coronavirus crisis, Donald Trump is now calling for an end to social distancing, perhaps as early as Easter. His goal is to restart the economy and avoid the worst impact of the coming recession.

    Can you imagine: Trump in the crudest and most callous possible way is attempting to solve the crisis on the backs of our working class and people. It wasn’t enough that the administration ignored each and every warning from the scientific community and called it a hoax and a scam. It wasn’t enough that they are using the crisis to turn immigrants back at the border and bust unions.

    The World Peace Council condemns strongly the decision of the US Attorney General, on behalf of the US administration, to announce criminal charges against the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and other high ranking officials with the pretext of their alleged involvement in international drug trafficking.

  • Response to COVID-19 crisis: Ideology makes a difference

    The economic and political structure of capitalism requires “an ideology, a consciousness, a way in which the citizenry can be taught to accept the system as it is. This ideology has many branches but one root, the maintenance and enhancement of the capitalist economic system. The elements of the dominant political ideology include: privileging individualism over community; conceptualizing society as a brutal state of nature controlled only by countervailing force; acceptance of the idea that humans are at base greedy; and, finally, the belief that the avariciousness of human nature requires police force and laws at home and armies overseas” (Harry Targ, Heartland Radical).

    The Cuban Alternative

    The March 21–22 webinar “International Conference for the Normalization of US-Cuba Relations” presented panelists who discussed the status of United States/Cuban relations, the contemporary Cuban economy, US and Canadian solidarity movements with Cuba, and the consequences of Cuban medical advances for the fight against the corona virus domestically and internationally.

    Full statement:

    Today, capitalism is showing its most perverse face as a neoliberal system that decides who lives and who does not in the midst of a global health crisis worsened by the COVID-19 outbreak. The mercantilist decision of sentencing to death and deprive senior citizens of their human rights confirms the real urgency and need to say that it is enough of the violence and oppression of a model of civilization that destroys life and has caused a global crisis.
