New pamphlet outlines basis for struggle against imperialist war
7 October 2014
The new Socialist Equality Party pamphlet Socialism and the Fight Against Imperialist War is now available for online purchase from Mehring Books.
The writings in this pamphlet outline the strategy needed by the international working class to oppose a new outbreak of imperialist barbarism and violence on a world scale. The recent provocations against Russia and the launching of a full-scale military intervention by the imperialist powers in the Middle East underscore the danger of the eruption of a new world conflagration.
The pamphlet contains three statements. The first was adopted by the International Committee of the Fourth International, the world Trotskyist movement, in June 2014. Pointing to the growing geopolitical tensions, it calls for the ICFI to become “the international center of the opposition to the resurgence of imperialist violence and militarism.”
The second document is a statement by the Socialist Equality Party (US) that elaborates a strategy for the mobilization of the working class against the increasingly reckless war plans of Washington.
The pamphlet concludes with a resolution of the Partei für Soziale Gleichheit on the return of German militarism. It notes that 70 years after the crimes of the Nazis, German imperialism is once against adopting the imperialist great power politics of the Kaiser’s Empire and Hitler.
Taken together these statements are essential reading for all workers and young people seeking a way to fight the drive toward war. Order your copy today and purchase extras for friends and co-workers.
