Here is the plain and simple truth: there is no party of the working class. And there has not been for the better part of a century.
Working people need our own party, a party of our whole class, built around the conviction that
the working class and the employing class have nothing in common, in the words of the IWW.
As the 2016 results of Working Class Party in Michigan show, the idea that workers should form their own party touched many people. That was important. But it was only a very small beginning.
The posts that follow come from people who worked on the campaign for Working Class Party, who are raising the question: What can be done in the current situation?
2017 is not an election year in Michigan on the state level. But that doesn't mean that there is nothing that can be done. Maybe we can't campaign for candidates. But we can campaign for the idea that working people need our own party.
