Fight Climate Catastrophe with Revolution
We present the revolutionary Marxist position on how to adapt to climate change. In the final analysis, the climate catastrophe is a product of capitalist exploitation and domination, and the solution to this problem is intimately connected to the class struggle. This is a crisis that the working class didn’t create, but which only we as a class can resolve by taking control over society.
Defend the Cuban Revolution!
Jorge Martin, a comrade in the International Marxist Tendency and editor for Marxist.com, appeared on Rupture Radio to discuss the Cuban Revolution, the recent protests that have broken out in the country, the imperialist blockade, and the tasks facing revolutionaries.

Israel, Palestine, and the Socialist Solution
For decades, the Israel-Palestine conflict has been one of imperialism's most blatant acts of oppression—with the systematic annihilation of the rights and lives of the Palestinian people at the hand of the Israeli state. Under capitalism, both the one-state and two-state solutions are utopian and can only lead to barbarism.
Marxists have a radically different proposal. In this talk from the 2019 Revolution Festival in London, Fred Weston (editor of marxist.com) puts forward a socialist, working-class, internationalist perspective: to fight for the revolutionary mobilization of the Middle Eastern masses against capitalism and imperialism, and for a Socialist Federation of the Middle East.
The Racist Terror of Tulsa 1921
On May 31, 1921, 100 years ago, a mob of enraged white vigilantes descended on Tulsa's black district of Greenwood, slaughtering hundreds of black people—the largest mass killing since the Civil War. These events are a tragic example of how American capitalism uses the poison of bigotry to “divide and rule.” Once unleashed on the world, the monster of racism took on a life of its own and has left many corpses in its wake.

Genuine Marxist analysis
Fantastic podcast! Serious comrades who clearly understand revolutionary history, theory, and philosophy. Love the series on the Civil War and appreciate the timely republishing of fundamental perspectives as current events unfold. Highly recommend to anyone interested in learning more about socialism and the tasks of the working class today.
And now for something totally different
This podcast is a breath of fresh air from the stifling cynicism and “practical” politics of much of the American Left. These are ideas and consistently revolutionary conclusions that can inspire working people to fight for something better, rather than what scraps the capitalists and their two parties let us have. Jacobin and the other social democratic “intellectuals” can go sniff their farts in a corner—this is the type of genuine Marxist analysis working people need!
