After unarmed, 18 year-old Michael Brown was gunned down by the Ferguson police, the town (just outside of St. Louis, Missouri) erupted. The government responded with even more repression, as these pictures show.
This is a new day, though, and the world is united as never before. As this story reports, people in Ferguson were getting tweets from people in Gaza. A new day is dawning.
- More repression? Check!
- More poverty? Check!
- More racism and communalism? Check!
- But also more international unity than ever before!
The struggle of working class people is growing around the world. And right before out eyes, under our very noses, working class internationalism is starting to develop and a mass, working class international is struggling to be born.
*Note: Oakland Socialist and the Workers International Network urges workers and youth to send messages of solidarity to the people of Ferguson. We will help ensure that any sent to us will be received in Ferguson.
