48] – Capitalism is failing. Millions of workers in the US are unemployed and many of their jobs are not coming back. A wave of evictions is on the horizon and we aren’t going to get another stimulus check anytime soon, if ever.  The police are still killing Black and Brown youth with impunity. They still occupy oppressed communities and we know they were in the tank for Trump. Now they’re even angrier — and more dangerous.  COVID-19 is spiking. With thousands of new cases every day, the US is entering the deadliest phase yet of the pandemic. Join Workers World Party on Thurs., Nov. 12 at 8 ET for a conversation about our revolutionary duty while the mainstream bourgeoisie attempts to carry on after the Trump administration. Keep the struggle in the streets. Tune in at

49] – Join the Progressive Democrats of America "Flip the Senate/Demote McConnell" on Thurs., Nov. 12 at 9 PM ET. No question the world is a better place with Joe Biden replacing Donald Trump. But everything we'll be trying to do to counteract four years of the slash and burn Trump agenda will be stymied so long as Mitch McConnell controls the agenda in the Senate. Pull the gavel from him by winning the two runoff races in Georgia.  Election Day is Jan. 5, but we must talk to as many voters as we can before November 18th when vote by mail ballots drop. Join the strategy meeting to see how we're going to win these races with your help. Email
