“The Dog Days of the Left Opposition”

Max Schachtman and James Cannon, July 1934We republish here, for our organization-wide reading, a chapter from James P. Cannon’s book The History of American Trotskyism, “Dog Days of the Left Opposition.” Originally presented as part of a lecture series to New York Marxists in 1942, this chapter highlights the difficult period that the American Left Oppositionists found themselves in after their expulsion from the Communist Party and their reduction to just a small group of Marxists fighting for the ideas of genuine revolutionary Marxism.

Many people argue that the working class no longer exists, or that it is no longer a revolutionary force for change. The Marxists, however, look beneath the superficial appearances, and understand that as long as capitalism and classes continue, so too does the class struggle. We cannot look at the unions, their leadership, or the rank and file as something static and unchanging.

[Volante] Programa de LIT/CMI 2014

La Liga Internacional de los Trabajadores basa en sí en las ideas de Marx, Engels, Lenin, y Trotsky, y en el desarollo de estas ideas por la Corriente Marxista Internacional. Luchamos por el socialismo internacional, en el que la clase obrera mundial tiene el control democrático sobre las medios de producción, distribución, e intercambio. Un gobierno de los trabajadores en los Estados Unidos se haría cargo de la inmensa riqueza ahora propiedad de sólo un puñado de individuos y democráticamente usarlo en los intereses de todos. Nuestro programa, en forma de volante, se puede descargar aquí. Distribuirlo ampliamente para ayudar a construir las fuerzas del marxismo en los EE.UU.
