Fight for the Children
Across the country, the American people have expressed their revulsion at the barbar- ic practice of tearing children from their parents’ at the border, and sending the children to “baby jails” or shipped to faraway cities. Even though the order has been rescinded these families face the uncertainty of whether they will ever see one another again. The zero-tolerance policy still exists and now children are jailed with their parents.
This separation of children from their families at the border is part of deeper and more widespread moral crisis faced by the American people. Our class is being forced to contend with questions that strike at the very heart of our common human experience.
Family and the raising and protection of children are the center of human existence. The tearing apart of families at the border has shown the American people that the depravity and cruelty of this ruling class knows no bounds.The children of the world, within and outside of our borders, are our children. Protecting our children is the fight for humanity.

The age-old vision of a world without scarcity, without exploitation, class domination, organized violence, and stultifying labor has been the dream of millenia. The new completely socialized labor-eliminating means of production ... sets the basis for its realization. Now human history can begin, the light of the individual shining in the full brightness of liberated life, that can only be realized within true equality and cooperation: communism, a cooperative society.'Without Vision, the People Perish'
