Caracas, Venezuela, November 2007

Revolutionary struggles by working people are inevitable-initiated not by the toilers, but by the crisis-driven assaults of the propertied classes. As a fighting vanguard of the working class emerges in the U.S., the outlines of these coming battles-whose outcome is not inevitable-can already be seen. The future depends on us.
