What kind of unity do oppressed and working people need today? Certainly not the Democrats’ version of bi-partisanship that will cause more repression and misery for the 99% while the 1% add billions to their bloated portfolios.
The united front is a movement tactic in which political groups and activists collaborate against a common enemy or for any agreed objective, even if they are politically different in other ways.
United fronts are a very effective method of advancing the growth, strength, and unity of the working-class movement, which is an urgent task now.
In this online study group, to be held on Zoom, we will discuss:
• The purpose, principles, structure, and actions of united fronts
• Why united fronts are so important
• Their role in the revolutionary movements of history as well as today
• How to apply lessons from history to today’s challenges
• Practical wisdom that we can use to build our own united fronts
• The united front model of solidarity in action
• How and why united fronts have won significant gains, while failing to form them has resulted in painful defeats
