WORLD-RENOWNED US activist and author Angela Davis has congratulated the Communist Party USA on its centenary celebrations, saying: “Socialism is the only viable future for our country and the planet.”
In a letter to the party she expressed her pride at spending “many of my formative years in this organisation,” saying she had “benefited from its pioneering presence in and leadership of anti-racist and working-class campaigns.”
She praised the historic role of the CPUSA in organising industrial workers, sharecroppers and tenant farmers in the US South.
“It is becoming increasingly clear that this work helped create a political terrain on which struggles against Jim Crow segregation would eventually thrive,” Ms Davis said, with many now discovering the invaluable role of communists.
“This is a perilous moment — unions are under attack, racist assaults, and anti-semitic violence are on the rise, ultra-right candidates have won office in the US, Brazil, the Philippines, Israel, and in other countries,” she said.
“At the same time, there is increasing opposition to white supremacy, police violence, misogyny, and capitalist accumulation of wealth in the world.
“With its century-old history of struggle, the Communist Party is well-positioned to offer expertise, experience and Marxist analyses that will assist the resistance movements to grow and develop.”
