Two opposite directions for humanity are making themselves apparent: one, the massive actions from below demanding a social transformation radical enough to achieve serious climate action, from the Youth Climate Strikes to the Extinction Rebellion; two, the series of terroristic massacres that would drag the world in a reactionary, suicidal direction, from New Zealand to Sri Lanka. Dig deeper with us in the Draft for Marxist-Humanist Perspectives, 2019-2020, in the May-June issue of News & Letters.
That new issue is at the print shop and will be mailed out later this week. It can be viewed as a pdf now at http://newsandletters.org/PDF-ARCHIVE/2019/2019-05-06.pdf. You can also find it by clicking on “Back issues” and then “2010s.” Raya Dunayevskaya’s column takes up the need “to take a further look into the economy, not for statistical purposes, but for the relationship of dialectics of liberation to economic ills.” Among other stories are a prisoner’s column, “Served the time but kept in prison”; “Algerian women at the forefront”; “Uber and Lyft drivers strike!”; “Essay: Socialism, labor and the Black dimension”; and “Genius of Sudanese revolution.”
These and all the other articles will be posted on our website individually in the coming days. You can help them reach more people by reposting them on social media.
Each issue, like all of our literature, is meant to be the beginning of a dialogue. We look forward to hearing your thoughts on the articles you read in News & Letters. That is one of several ways you can support our work.
