Two letters on the New York TWU Strike

Written by In Defence of Marxism Thursday, 12 January 2006
We publish two letters commenting on the recent New York TWU strike, one from the USA and another from Venezuela. The strike has exposed once more the fact that the two main US parties, Republicans and Democrats are not enemies, but partners opposed to the working class. The strike has also highlighted the fact that in the USA there is not just the imperialist bourgeoisie, but also a might working class that is an ally of the workers of the world.

USA: The Anti-Immigration Laws - Who Are the Real Friends of Latin American Workers?

Written by Jose Bedia Thursday, 12 January 2006
A new anti-immigration bill is being considered in the United States that would be used to criminalize and persecute mainly the millions of Latino workers.

USA: While the Big Three Savage Delphi, Auto Workers Demand: “No Concessions!”

Written by David May Thursday, 05 January 2006
A major attack on trade union rights is also going ahead at Delphi. If the UAW workers there are forced to take a 63 percent pay cut and severe attacks on healthcare benefits and pension rights it will not be long until the bosses begin demanding similar cuts in other industries. A victory for the Delphi autoworkers would be a victory for the whole of the US working class.
