There were ten candidates onstage at last night's Democratic debate in Miami. Bernie Sanders wasn’t one them — but his campaign and policy agenda largely shaped the debate anyway.
We’re ramping up our coverage on a host of important issues. Welcome new columnists Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor and Liza Featherstone.
Unions are schools of workers’ struggle — that’s why socialists talk so much about them. But they’re also contradictory institutions that often become complacent and bureaucratic. That’s why the rank-and-file strategy is so important.
Trump has settled on a cynical strategy in Syria: use the Kurds to try to promote regime change. He doesn’t care about the democratic aspirations of Kurdish revolutionaries.
The feud between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren supporters is getting ridiculous. Warren isn’t Hillary and Bernie is no sexist.
Socialists keep winning elections. The latest: Tiffany Cabán, who won the Queens, New York, district attorney race last night. She will soon have the opportunity to radically overhaul the criminal justice system by ending cash bail, halting prosecution of crimes of poverty, decriminalizing sex work, and more.
Trump’s eagerness to wage war against Iran is reckless, irrational — and murderous. Iran is simply not a threat.
Turkey's right-wing ruler, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, tried to rerun the Istanbul mayoral election after it didn’t go his way — but on Sunday, his party lost big. It’s a crushing defeat for his autocratic regime.
It’s no coincidence that Tiffany Cabán was a public defender before her radical campaign for Queens DA. The right to public defense wasn’t granted by elites. It was won by socialist-led mass movements.
Segregation wasn’t just the product of grassroots racism. It was furthered by decades of top-down federal policies.
Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen relies on lucrative weapons deals with the West. But the arms shipments can’t happen if dockers refuse to load the ships — and in France and Italy, they’ve already taken strike action to stop the Saudi war machine.
Scientists claim they can solve racial inequalities in health care through genetics. It's a wrongheaded and dangerous approach: Reading race into our DNA will only make racism into scientific doctrine.
