Socialism Is "Imperative": Communist Leaders Detail Their Plans For America At Party Conference Over The Weekend
The Communist Party USA opened its national conference in New York this weekend, and the speakers weren’t shy about their plans for the United States of America.In what constituted a clear step-by-step stratagem, Sam Webb, the party’s chair, opened his remarks by saying that the upcoming elections are only be part of “a grander design [that] will connect the dots between our immediate and longer-range political task.”“To put it differently,” he elaborated, “we hope to connect the struggle at the ballot box today with the struggle for socialism tomorrow.”Once Republicans are successfully subdued, Webb believes that communists will join with workers in an “anti-corporate” struggle.
Occupy Wall Street plans to come back with a bang in less than ten days when it unleashes its May Day General Strike that could blockade the bridges and tunnels necessary for New York City to function.In addition to the planned transit blockade, Occupy is rallying factions across the country in solidarity with general strikes around the world: “For the first time, workers, students, immigrants, and the unemployed from over 115 U.S. cities will stand together for economic justice.”
