WWP campaign rally in New York City:

Talking about fightback and revolution

The message of the Sept. 18 campaign rally came through loud and clear: Workers World Party is using the podium of the 2004 presidential elections to build the revolutionary struggle against capitalism and resistance to Washington's war of occupation in Iraq.

Full article:>


John Parker: 'A whiff of socialism'

Something smells very bad in here, in Los Angeles and all over the country--it's capitalism.>


Teresa Gutierrez: 'Get out in the streets!'

This year will forever be marked as the infamous Anybody But Bush year. The fear that George W. Bush evokes is regrettably propelling some sectors in the movement and in the working class once again toward the Democratic Party.

[But] it's not about which rich white man is in the White House this year.


LeiLani Dowell: 'U.S. hand in Haiti coup'

From Sept. 3-6, I participated in a fact-finding delegation to Haiti with 11 other activists from both coasts of the United States. Now I want to take every opportunity I can get to raise the situation in Haiti; it's my responsibility, given the hand of the United States in the coup.



U.S. Hands off Haiti!

Support the Million Worker March!

Friday Oct. 1, 7 p.m.

Haitian activist Pierre Labossiere was in Haiti early this year for bicentennial celebrations marking the country's independence from France, before a U.S./French-backed coup deposed democratically elected President Jean-Bertrand Aristide on Feb. 29.

LeiLani Dowell traveled to post-coup Haiti in September as part of a fact-finding delegation led by former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark. She met with dozens of political prisoners, including Haitian singer So Anne and members of Jean Bertrand Aristide's government who were arrested after the coup.

VERMONT: Talking socialism in New England

Taking the message of socialism to Vermont, Workers World Party presidential candidate John Parker and vice-presidential candidate Teresa Gutierrez met with activists in Brattleboro Sept. 25 and Barre Sept. 26.

Their visit was hosted by the Liberty Union Party, which is sponsoring the WWP candidates on the state ballot.

"We're confident that it's inherent in the working class and oppressed to fight for a socialist society. History demands that we turn capitalism around," Gutierrez declared before a crowd at the River Garden, a community center in Brattleboro, a town of 6,000 in southeastern Vermont.

The candidates spoke before a colorful banner declaring, "Bring the troops home! People's needs, yes. Capitalist greed, no. All out for the Million Worker March, Oct. 17, Washington, D.C."

Queried about WWP's position on the U.S. war in Iraq, Parker said, "Our party stands unconditionally against the war in Iraq and for the resistance movement."

After the River Garden closed, candidates and audience members moved to a local progressive coffee bar to discuss a range of topics from Palestine to Iraq to the Million Worker March. And, of course, how to fight for socialism.

In Barre, popularly known as "Granite City" for its historic industry, the candidates spoke at the Socialist Labor Hall.

MWM T-shirts and literature were sold and distributed at both events.

DENVER: Workers, students welcome WWP candidates

Presidential candidate John Parker and vice-presidential candidate Teresa Gutierrez spent four whirlwind days in Denver Sept. 6-9. There they found working people excited about the campaign as a way to connect the elections to the living struggle.

In San Francisco Dowell spoke at a Peace & Freedom Party meeting for local candidates Sept. 25 and a Radical Women meeting Sept. 28. On Oct. 1 she will speak on the struggle against the U.S. invasion and coup in Haiti.

There will be candidate appearances in the Midwest, including Cleveland Oct. 5, in conjunction with the vice-presidential debates at Case Western Reserve University.

In California, all three candidates are scheduled to appear in Los Angeles on Sat. Oct. 9, 4 p.m., at Workmen's Circle; Sun. Oct. 10, 4 p.m., KRST African Spirituality and Unity Center; and Mon.
