“Capitalist greed has brought barbarism upon us and the far-right increasingly spreads reactionary ideas like racism, ethnicism meant to divide working-class people and youth. Never before has the need been so pressing for revolutionary and radical forces to unite and fight, within and between countries, for a better world. CORE thus proudly lifts the revolutionary banner high for social progress and ecological justice, in the ranks of the Progressive International”
