STRIKE AGAINST CAPITALISM!!
The Chicago teachers’ strike is a fight back against the racist conditions (overcrowded classes, segregated schools, etc.) our children face every day. Strikes allow workers to feel the power that we have as a class to stop the bosses in their tracks. The liberal Democrats, Obama and Duncan are leading the racist attacks on students and teachers in the U.S. with their “Race to the Top”. The anti-racist fight that 26,000 Chicago school workers are waging is an inspiration to workers around the world, like the striking Lonmin miners in Marikana, South Africa.
SAME ENEMY, SAME FIGHT! WORKERS OF THE WORLD UNITE!!
For better wages, working and living conditions the black mine workers have shut down the world’s third largest platinum mine. Our working class sisters and brothers in South Africa are waging a strike against the mine owners and the racist liberal African National Congress (ANC). The response of the liberal black led ANC to these workers demands was the racist police massacre of 8 miners on August 8th and 34 striking miners on August 16th.
