  • The undersigned communist youth of America declare:

    1. Our full solidarity with all young people and their families who have been forced to emigrate from their countries due to capitalism and its consequences. Month by month, thousands of young Central Americans and Mexicans are forced to risk their lives fleeing misery, unemployment, drug trafficking and state repression. This leads to an inhuman situation where migrants end up dead in the Usumacinta River or the Rio Grande, disappeared and kidnapped by cartels during their transit or detained by the National Guard in Mexico and the U.S. Border Patrol. One of the most tragic and emblematic cases is that of Salvadorian Alberto Martínez, who at 25 years of age died drowned with his baby while trying to cross the Rio Grande. Those who manage to overcome that hell, enter a new one in the United States and Canada, facing a stark exploitation without labor rights, persecuted, in many cases living in the shadow with the fear of being deported to their countries.

    Americans will not win from the confrontation with China" Interview of Jean-Claude Delaunay by L’Humanité

    Humanité How to analyze the current trade war in China and the United States?

    Jean-Claude Delaunay:

    The United States seems to be five years late in discovering the Chinese strategy of a "new normality". It is not only a question of achieving social progress, but also of developing productive forces: the Internet, electronics, artificial intelligence, the development of 5G...

  • Is community self-defense the answer to fighting racist terror?Trump’s hate speech and actions have resulted in horrific casualties in recent days and weeks. Violent words have begotten violent acts. Time and again, domestic terrorists have been encouraged and set loose upon the land.

    Grief, fear and intimidation have followed, but so have outrage, determination, and indignation at the deliberate incitement of white supremacist hatred from the highest office in the land.

  • This statement was written by Dayton/Miami Valley DSA, Ohio. We are posting it in solidarity.

    We, the Dayton/Miami Valley chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, mourn for our Dayton sisters and brothers.

  • On August 2, six months after Washington initiated the withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty signed by the USSR and the US in 1987, the treaty has been terminated for all parties: the US, Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine.

    This means that a key treaty for establishing the regional and global security architecture no longer exists. Under the INF Treaty, the parties eliminated two classes of nuclear armaments: land-based intermediate-range and shorter range missiles. The missile launchers and all the associated support facilities and equipment were also destroyed.

  • This statement was written by members of El Chuco del Norte DSA. We are posting it in solidarity.

    Our hearts hurt, our souls hurt, everything hurts. We are mad, we can’t stop crying… as the horrors of white supremacy have hit our beloved El Chuco. Yesterday, in El Paso, we experienced the consequences of a manufactured “national security crisis,” of a fake “invasion” by a president that perpetuates hate against our Latinx community and has made it his mission to “other” us. Just know it wasn’t an El Pasoan that did this. El Paso wouldn’t do this. El Paso is kind. El Paso is love. El Paso is a city where, in the wake of this tragedy, so many people showed up to donate blood that the donations centers couldn’t even accommodate all of us and had to ask us to come back tomorrow or make an appointment. El Paso is a city where funeral homes are saying they won’t charge families for the funeral costs of the victims. El Paso is text messages and phone calls all day long from family and friends checking in on each other. El Paso IS family. El Paso IS home. This was done by an outsider who does not represent El Paso.

  • In an interview offered to the Central Edition program, broadcast through the multistate Telesur this Friday, the People’s Power Minister for Foreign Relations, Jorge Arreaza, rejected and repudiated the new threats of the president of the United States, Donald Trump, on the imposition of a possible naval or quarantine blockade to the South American country with support from neighboring countries.

    He also insisted that the Human Rights Council of the United Nations (UN), must act against these threats to peace and international security pronounced by the ruling elite of Washington, “we will insist on each of the Permanent and non-permanent members of the Security Council to comply with the Charter of the United Nations, they have that obligation (…) The United States should be immediately neutralized by the multilateral system, by the United Nations to avoid a tragedy”.

  • The United States continues to use last year's staged poisoning of the former British agent and his daughter in the UK to aggravate relations with Russia. This blatant provocation, whose participants have been protected from exposure, again serves as the pretext to impose sanctions on Russia under the Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare Elimination Act of 1991 and a special executive order recently signed by the White House.

  • During an Open Debate of the United Nations Security Council (UN) on armed conflicts and their effects on the civilian population, the permanent ambassador of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Samuel Moncada, denounced the constant war threats by the United States against the South American country.

    “The Government of Donald Trump for the last two years has been dedicated to planning a war against Venezuela through the economic blockade, the looting of our wealth, sabotage in food purchases; and continues with increasingly serious actions”, he said.

  • On August 2, the United States completed the withdrawal from the INF Treaty. Accordingly, this instrument ceased to have effect.

    Washington has committed a grave mistake. By launching a propaganda campaign based on deliberately misleading information on what was presented as violations of the INF Treaty by Russia, the United States intentionally plunged the Treaty into a crisis that was almost impossible to overcome. The cause is however clear: the United States wanted to free itself from the existing restrictions.
