[Leaflet] Fight for Socialism! A Program to Defeat Trump

This is the text of a leaflet distributed by the US Section of the Internatinal Marxist Tendency. Download the PDF version of the leaflet here!

The massive wave of defiance against Donald Trump’s election shows that millions of youth and workers will resist his government. Trump cannot resolve the crisis of capitalism and the poverty, bigotry, and instability that come with it. The Democrats and labor leaders have rolled over and offered to work with him. The International Marxist Tendency (IMT) has a different perspective. We are confident that Trump’s anti-worker agenda can be stopped in its tracks. This is our proposal for a program to fight and beat Trump.

John Peterson, Editor of Socialist Appeal, discusses the polarization and radicalization taking place in the United States. John explains that events like the Sanders campaign and the #BlackLivesMatter movement are expressing the accumulated discontent with the status quo which has built up beneath the surface for many years. These developments have enormous implications for the spread of revolutionary ideas and the growth of the forces of Marxism in the USA and around the world.
