Candidates of the Working Class Party in Michigan's 2020 campaign spoke at their party's convention on September 19, 2021.
Working Class Party, as small as it is, is important. It's the only one telling this truth – that the working class has its own class interests and its own power; and that the working class can only depend on itself.
COVID-19 and all of its variant cousins have highlighted the social, economic, and racial disparities not only in this country but all over the world.
While extreme reactionaries push division, the Working Class Party can be a strong magnet to attract workers to the goal of working class unity and solidarity.
Anyway, what it's going to take is to come together and to spread the fight everywhere. If more of us get the bigger picture, there'll be enough of us to spread it. That's what it's going to take. We're going to have to spread it. You can't win in just one place.
