Socialism or Barbarism — the fight continues!

Too many times we’ve seen the U.S. government bail out corporations and banks instead of working people. Today, history is set to repeat itself, with Democrats and Republicans coming together on a bill that allocates seventeen times as much to financial relief for big business than it does to direct financial assistance to workers. The…

Dangers‌ ‌of‌ ‌an‌ ‌Illegitimate‌ ‌Election:‌ ‌We‌ ‌Must‌ ‌Postpone‌ ‌Primaries‌ ‌Now!‌/Los‌ ‌Peligros‌ ‌de‌ ‌Una‌ ‌Elección‌ ‌Ilegítima:‌ ‌‌¡‌Tenemos‌ ‌Que‌ ‌Posponer‌ ‌Las‌ ‌Primarias‌ ‌Ya!‌

People across the country faced an impossible choice yesterday: cast a ballot for the Democratic nomination or flout CDC guidelines and risk spreading or contracting the coronavirus as a worldwide pandemic rages on. Illinois, Florida, and Arizona allowed their primaries to move forward yesterday despite major public health concerns and a crumbling electoral infrastructure, and…

Now is the Time for Solidarity: DSA National Statement on COVID-2019/Es la hora de solidaridad: Comunicación nacional de DSA acerca de COVID-19

UPDATE: Sign DSA’s petition for a working class solution to the COVID-19 crisis! From the 2008 global financial collapse to the natural disasters caused by climate change that rocked Northern California, New Orleans, New York, and Puerto Rico, capitalism is causing devastating human crises.

DSA stands in solidarity with the Salvadoran people

DSA stands in solidarity with the Salvadoran popular movement, the Salvadoran diaspora, the Salvadoran American youth, and the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN) and condemns an alarming power grab by President Nayib Bukele.

Primary results: We will fight harder than ever. Join us!/Los resultados de las primarias: Lucharemos más fuerte que nunca. Únete con nosotros!

The political establishment of the Democratic Party, running a campaign intent on maintaining the status quo, is once again relying on long voting lines, the deep pockets of corporate super PACs, armies of paid “volunteers” and consultants, and control of the airwaves and major newspapers to wrest the election from the hands of the working…

Bernie and Socialism Can Win!/¡Bernie y el socialismo pueden ganar!

Yesterday we won California. We won Vermont, Utah, and Colorado. But we did so much more than that. Projections have Bernie receiving nearly five million votes on Super Tuesday. That means five million people voted for a democratic socialist. Working-class people are demanding Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, strong unions, just immigration policies,…

DSA Supports Full Decriminalization of Sex Work

We are at a critical moment. Sex-worker-led movements all over the world are engaged in an existential struggle to win basic human and labor rights for one of the most criminalized, stigmatized, and persecuted workforces in history. Often spoken over but rarely listened to, current workers engaged in the trade of sex and erotic services…

TransCanada) 416-mile, $4.7 billion Coastal GasLink pipeline. We also extend our deep admiration and support to the Mohawk, Gitxsan, and other Indigenous and…

Bernie Places Second in South Carolina/Bernie Clasifica en Segundo Lugar en Carolina del Sur

The political establishment of the Democratic Party has war chests filled by billionaires, armies of paid canvassers and consultants, and control of the airwaves and major newspapers. Panicked by Senator Sanders’s momentum, and following his incredible and overwhelming victory in Nevada, they bought their way to a win in South Carolina tonight. As DSA, we’re…
