Solidarity with comrades of the Grupo Internacionalista! An injury to one is an injury to all!
We recently learned about a shocking attack on the family of comrades of the Grupo Internacionalista, Mexican section of the League for the Fourth International (see “Protest Torture Attack on Labor Activists’ Family in Mexico”). We stand in complete solidarity with these comrades who are victims of horrific anti-communist violence apparently carried out with the connivance of Mexican state authorities. The depraved perpetrators of this outrage are the enemies of all those committed to social justice and democratic rights.

Video: Rape and Women's Rights
IBT supporter Adaire Hannah speaking at a rally on 13 March 2017 protesting against rape culture in Wellington, New Zealand. The rally was organized by students of Wellington East Girls’ College after comments involving rape “jokes” were made on social media by students from the nearby all-boys Wellington College. Her powerful speech clearly resonated strongly with the hundreds of youth in the crowd because it connected the issue of rape to other aspects of women's liberation. It is necessary to struggle against all injustice but socialist revolution is the only way that misogny, racism, xenophobia and other pathologies constantly reproduced by capitalism can be eliminated once and for all. These arguments are further expanded in Marxism, Feminism and Women's Liberation.
