The rapid spread of a new form of coronavirus across the world, has meant for the states of developed capitalism for a new escalating attack on the lower classes, in the form of emergency measures. By stating this, we are in no way neglecting the fact that due to the pandemic we are amidst an unprecedented situation with an increasing number of infections and deaths.
How can we win? The first wave of uprising that spread around the world in 2018-2019 was the premise of a new revolutionary cycle. Today, this cycle has reopened, right in the belly of world capitalism: the USA.
“I can’t breathe.” No phrase could have better summed up the situation the U.S. proletariat has been going through since the beginning of the pandemic. Pronounced by George Floyd as a cop was choking him to death, it became the expression of a revolt that has spread throughout the United States in less than a week.
