BRAVO CINDY - NOW LET’S MOVE ON

by Dave Silver

September 25, 2005

How correct Cindy was when she said that she’s glad that she may have been “a catalyst but she should not be the focus.”

Perhaps an even greater contribution of sister Sheehan was her severe condemnation of Bush’s junior partners, the Democrats.

Cindy, wittingly or not, reminded the anti-war movement of an indispensable ingredient as an absolute pre-requisite for building a more class conscious and anti-racist and anti-imperialist movement connecting the war in the Gulf with the war at home whose epicenter now is in New Orleans and Mississippi .

What else could she have meant when she said that “we need a people’s movement” to end the war and injustice. This is a most welcome caveat for those who remain in the Church of AnyBody But A Republican, for we do so at great political, economic and social risk. War is a symptom, capitalism the disease and radical change now is the beginning of a solution.

Radical change in foreign and domestic policies (and politicians) such as stopping the quest for empire, pushing back institutionalized racism in its many forms, single payer health care, affordable housing, jobs with dignity at $10 minimum wage, immigrant rights, and an end to the death penalty to name some of the needed changes.

This can only be achieved with a political and united fist that is informed by a consciousness of the common corporate enemy no matter who sits in the White House. It is this common enemy which ALONE unites all of the issues of justice and peace, of oppression and exploitation. This means we must have a truly independent and alternative national political Movement/Party which ends the illusion that we can work “inside and out of” the Democratic Party.

ONE HUMANITY, ONE STRUGGLE
