Frank Chapman of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization shares some of the lessons in the U.S. struggle for socialism. Marxist-Leninist and other socialist groups from several American cities held an October Revolution Centennial Conference in NYC on 1 July 2017, followed the next day by a festival of progressive culture in the city's Chinatown district.

THIS WEEK’S MAIN STORY

On the yellow vest movement in France

Professor Jose Maria Sison, chairperson of the International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS), favorably compares France’s yellow vest movement “with the May 1968 mass protests in France, especially with regard to militancy and opposition to the capitalist establishment.” While the movement “suffers from the same excessively horizontalist populist character” and the lack of revolutionary proletarian leadership, Sison emphasizes that it is “welcome and praiseworthy” for taking up the people’s just grievances and exposing the grave ills of the “oppressive and exploitative capitalist ruling system.”
