Dec. 28, 2020
It’s safe to say, as 2020 winds to an end, that none of us foresaw all the events and challenges we would come up against this year. From a global pandemic, to a sustained uprising in the streets against the ongoing legacy of racism and policing, to now facing an economy that has both delivered obscene wealth to a few while millions of working and poor people are unsure if they will have money to meet their most basic needs.
For all these reasons, we at STL DSA will continue to fight. We know the problem isn’t the year on the calendar, it’s the system—capitalism—that perpetuates these injustices, hand in glove with oppressive systems like racism and patriarchy that allow the powerful to continue dividing the working class. And while we are glad Trump will be leaving office soon, we know these problems run deeper than the Presidency. If you haven’t already, please join us in this fight, now and into 2021. Happy new year!
