    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.
