Millions of people have come to the understanding that capitalism is no longer working. And millions of people around the world--from mine workers in South Africa to students in Quebec to teachers in Chicago--are fighting back.
Marxism provides a revolutionary understanding and strategy for ridding society of exploitation and oppression once and for all. We want more than just resistance, we want to win!
