SocialistWorker.org aims to be a place to find news, analysis and commentary from the left.
SocialistWorker.org began as the online version of the weekly Socialist Worker newspaper, founded in 1977 and published by the International Socialist Organization. (You can read the International Socialist Organization's "Where We Stand" for a brief statement of the tradition it stands in.)
As a newspaper and now a daily Web site Socialist Worker has been committed to giving a voice to those struggling for a better world.
We've sought out the stories of labor struggles that are seldom reported in the mainstream media--and never reported on from the point of view of those fighting back. From interviews with striking miners in Kentucky in the 1970s to a day-by-day account of the Republic Windows & Doors factory occupation in Chicago in 2008, we've tried to bring workers' experiences and opinions to a wider audience.
We've reported on campaigns for social change and economic justice in the U.S. and around the world--from the movement against South African apartheid in the 1980s to the one against Israel's apartheid against Palestinians today; from the soldiers' resistance in Iraq and Afghanistan to the LGBT movement for equality, and much more.
SocialistWorker.org is committed not only to reporting from the front lines of these struggles, but to providing a forum for discussion and debate of the political questions facing activists.
We also seek to present a socialist analysis of world news and events, and to keep alive the rich and too-often-hidden history of working-class struggle and the socialist tradition. You'll find left-wing and Marxist analyses of important questions of the day from a broad range of voices on the left.
