ICFI statement “Socialism and the Fight Against War” now available from Mehring Books
9 March 2016
Mehring Books is pleased to announce the publication of the statement Socialism and the Fight Against War in pamphlet form.
The statement, published on the World Socialist Web Site on February 18, 2016, outlines a socialist strategy to oppose the global drive to war, which it calls a “conspiracy of the capitalist elites.”
It states that the struggle to oppose “the geopolitics of the capitalist class” must be based on the assessment that “the international working class is the social force that objectively constitutes the mass base for world socialist revolution, which signifies an end to the nation-state system as a whole and the establishment of a global economy based on equality and scientific planning.”
The pamphlet also includes the statement Socialism and the Fight Against Imperialist War, published by the International Committee of the Fourth International in June 2014, which called for building the ICFI as “the international center of the opposition to the resurgence of imperialist violence and militarism.”
These statements are essential reading for all workers and young people seeking a way to fight the drive toward war. This pamphlet should be widely circulated in workplaces, schools and campuses, to organize the growing opposition of millions around the world to war, social inequality and the assault on democratic rights.
