In this time of crisis of the ruling class, we ask the question, what does it mean to have an internationalist politics? In our study of the anti-Trump movement, we have seen how these protests align dangerously with the democratic party and the capitalist war machine in its attacks on Russia. We reject any movement that builds intentionally or unintentionally towards war. We believe that the need of the hour is to build an anti-war front. First of all, we take a moral stance against war. We believe in the value of human life and stand in solidarity with the brothers, sisters and children who have been killed, or those whose lives have been destroyed by the imperialist wars in Palestine, Yemen, Syria, and Iraq, among others. Secondly, we recognize that war is one of the ways that the capitalist system uses to resolve its contradictions in times of crisis. By building a movement against war, we are heightening the current crisis brought on by the Trump election. Further, we also recognize that the liberation of people within the United States is tied deeply to the liberation of all people in the third world. We cannot fight the imperialist machinery from within without the support from our comrades outside. On what basis do we stand in solidarity with struggles outside of the US? We recognize that the basis of revolutionary struggle cannot be the nation-state. Hence, following Du-Bois, we base our struggles on the idea of civilizations. Civilizations are manifested in culture but go far beyond culture. They both extend beyond nations and differ within nations. We believe that people can unite on the basis of an intercivilizational unity. We will also discuss in this panel our work to build principled unity as organizers and people who are based in different civilizations.
