Class War: The Attack on Working People


Manufacturer: AK Press

Product Information

Corporations with their political allies are waging an unrelenting class war against working people. This phenomenon is occuring not only in the US but in Canada, Europe and Australia as well. Social welfare programs are being curtailed and eliminated in the name of fiscal responsibility.

Privatization, the market and level playing fields are the mantras of the day. CEOs tell workers to tighten their belts while their own wallets are bulging. Income equality is more acute in the US than in any other industrialised country, even surpassing Britain. Glamorous Manhattan has disparities in wealth that exceed Guatemala. People are working longer hours, producing more and earning less. Wages have been stagnant or declining for more than twenty years. The ranks of the poor have mushroomed. Meanwhile profits are at unprecedented levels. A Wall Street Journal headline says it all:

"Thanks. Goodbye. Amid record profits companies continue to lay off employees."

"Class War" is vintage Noam Chomsky. There is no doubt as to which side he's on. Solidarity is not an abstract concept but a vital and unifying principle. His analyses provide people with tools for self defence. His commitment, involvement and accessibility are exemplary. It's no wonder that the New Statesman calls him, " The conscience of the American people."

Noam Chomsky's speech, Class War: The Attack on the Working People was recorded at MIT, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Produced by David Barsamian of Alternative Radio.
