Today more workers are saying, “enough is enough” and using unions to fight for better conditions. Just this week Kuniansky joined a spirited protest organized by 1199SEIU at Clara Maass Hospital — where nurses are fighting for their first union contract and against retaliation for union activity —  and she brought support to a rally  of members of the Writers Guild of America striking for a liveable wage.

SWP candidates are explaining the party’s working-class program: defense of freedoms protected by the U.S. Constitution, for a jobs program,  defense of Ukraine’s independence and to take Cuba off the state sponsors of terrorism list and end the U.S. embargo of Cuba.

They are calling for a break with both the Democrats and Republicans, who defend the interests of the ruling capitalist families responsible for today’s social, moral and economic crisis, and for organizing a labor party based on the unions. A labor party can speak and act in the interests of the working class, working farmers and all the oppressed and take steps toward building a. Movement to replace capitalist rule with a workers and farmers government.
