  • Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) denounces the racist incitement from President Trump toward Representative Ilhan Omar and the initially tepid or nonexistent defense coming from most Democratic elected officials.

    Trump targets Rep. Omar for her Muslim faith, for her bravery in standing up to Islamophobia, and to divide us from each other. As the recent murder of 50 Muslims in Christchurch, New Zealand showed us, the kinds of rhetoric the president uses has very real and tragic consequences. This practice is a form of “scripted violence” that remotely triggers supporters who then perpetrate violence against Trump’s named scapegoats.

  • This Thursday, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs described as “sinister” the plans that the United States government intends to present to the United Nations (UN), through a resolution to recognize its protege, Juan Guaidó, as president of Venezuela.

    “Russia urged the US to refuse the military option as a solution to the situation in Venezuela”, said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman María Zajárova.

  • “In Venezuela, it is the Constitution and the people who mandates and commands and it will continue to be so because of the conscience and the will of the great majorities”.

  • The Foreign Minister of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, criticized the statement issued this Friday by US National Security Advisor, John Bolton, which alludes to issues of exclusive competence of the Latin American country.

    In this regard, he suggested – through his Twitter account @ jaarreaza – that the function of the North American counselor should be to guarantee the security of his country.

  • With Mueller’s probe limited only to matters related to alleged Russian interference in the election, the spotlight has been taken off other Trump crimes, including serious violations of financial laws, the emoluments clause of the Constitution, pay-for-play foreign policy, including the joining of a war in Yemen in exchange for Saudi loans to the Trump family, and so many other things.

  • Call to the CPUSA’s 31st National Convention

    Celebrating 100 years in the struggle for working-class and people’s democracy, equality, peace, a sustainable environment, and socialism, the Communist Party USA will convene its 31st National Convention in Chicago from June 21 to 23, 2019.

  • The question of reparations for slavery has re-emerged in mainstream political discourse. Presidential candidates are being asked about it, and are giving a wide range of answers. What’s more, this question is now being taken seriously. Where in the past the notion was brought up as a means of scaremongering and sowing division among workers and voters — preying on racist, reactionary currents within white populations to depress enthusiasm and turnout — it is shaping up to be a key policy debate this cycle. As black voters make up a large portion of the Democratic base, and as the idea gains purchase among groups previously inclined to dismiss reparations as a notion whose time has passed, candidates are being forced to confront this issue honestly.

  • The People’s Power Minister  for Foreign Relations of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, categorically rejected the gangster tone with which White House spokesmen refer to Venezuela, pretending to intimidate with threats of military intervention in the Homeland of Bolívar.

    In this regard, Foreign Minister Arreaza expressed through his Twitter account, @jaarreaza, that “the spokesmen of Washington in gangster tone repeat that ‘in the case of Venezuela all options are on the table’ They lie! Neither diplomacy, nor dialogue, nor respect for International Law and the Venezuelan Constitution are on that famous table”.

  • On March 5th, DSA’s National Political Committee sent an advisory poll asking all members whether DSA should endorse Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign. This poll closed on March 12th at noon EST. The response was overwhelmingly in favor: 76% of participants said Yes, and 24% said No.

  • This Monday through a statement, the Bolivarian Government denounced the illegal and forced occupation of some of its diplomatic headquarters in the United States, by people who have the public support of the US government, actions that represent a clear violation of the Convention of Vienna on Diplomatic Relations.

    The information was released by the Foreign Minister of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, through his Twitter account @jarreaza.

  • The Trump administration and its supporters continue to put out utterly false information about immigrants and refugees in the United States.  But the immigrants’ rights movement is fighting back hard in the streets, in Congress and in the court of public opinion.

  • Editor’s Note: The article below is a submission to the CPUSA’s preconvention discussion. Comments are welcome.

    Recent developments both favor and require we: RECOMMIT TO COMMUNIST INTERNATIONAL UNITY! The documents opening our pre-convention discussion are in our best tradition, encouraging contributions. The draft program is strong on growing threats from environmental dangers and wars.

  • Demonstrators are gearing up for major demonstrations in front of the White House in Washington March 16 to protest President Donald Trump's violent attempts to overthrow the democratically elected Nicolas Maduro government in Venezuela.

    “U.S. hands off Venezuela! NO to the coup — NO to sanctions — NO to a new U.S. war,” reads a statement by National Coalition (NC) and some 150 other organizations and individuals behind the Saturday protest.

  • The Vice President of Communication, Tourism and Culture of Venezuela, Jorge Rodriguez, offered a press conference on Friday during which he demonstrated the participation of the U.S. senator for the state of Florida, Marco Rubio, in the cyber sabotage that left the South American country without power for more than 24 hours.

  • Venezuela's Vice President Delcy Rodriguez announced late Thursday that President Nicolas Maduro ordered schools and offices be shut on Friday in order to speed up the repairs of the Venezuelan electric system, which was attacked by far-right groups Thursday afternoon.

  • The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela strongly rejects the cynical decision by Donald’s Trump Administration to extend for another year the infamous executive order initially approved in 2015 by former president Barack Obama, declaring Venezuela an “unusual and extraordinary” threat against the US security.

    For most of the countries it is unconceivable that the first military power of the planet, which does not miss any opportunity to violate the International Law and systematically uses the force to satisfy its interests, intends to declare Venezuela a “threat”.

  • The United States government has renewed it's declaration of a national emergency over Venezuela for another year, which former President Barack Obama initially decreed in March 2015.

    In response, the Venezuelan government said the renewal of this measure is "a historic error" in the context of the economic aggressions and threats of military intervention to which the U.S. has subjected the country.

  • Editor’s Note: The interview below of CPUSA chairman John Bachtell was conducted by Peoples Dispatch from India.

    Can you make a brief and general assessment of the US shutdown’s impact on the US working class?

    A: The economic impact of the 35-day government shut down, the longest ever, was felt deeply by the 800,000 federal government workers, contractors, and millions who depend on the vital services that the government provides. Many workers went without two consecutive paychecks and were forced to borrow money, go to food banks and miss days of work because they just couldn’t afford to pay for transportation. Many subcontractors, including many low paid workers, will not be paid at all for time lost. And small businesses, restaurants and services that rely on federal workers as customers were severely hurt along with their workers.

  • For the first time in our lifetimes, Medicare for All appears to be within reach.

    For decades, one rogue Senator has repeatedly proposed single-payer healthcare, agitating against the profiteering of private insurers and drug companies while calling for a movement of working people to wrest healthcare out of the market. That Senator is Bernie Sanders, and now he’s on the verge of running for president.

    Sanders made Medicare for All a leading demand in his 2016 presidential campaign, drawing out the division in the Democratic Party between billionaire donors, their establishment politicians and millions of working people.

  • Venezuelan permanent ambassador to the United Nations (U.N.) Samuel Moncada denounced on Thursday in the Security Councy that the United States government is permanently military threatening Venezuela.

    The Venezuelan diplomatic also warned against the attempts of coup d'etat against the democratically elected government led by President Nicolas Maduro, attempts that are perpetrated through the illegal entry of the so-called "humanitarian aid."
