The Obama era has given the Communist Party USA a new lease of life.
The party is set to launch a new website for its new online daily newspaper which it hopes will massively increase readership.
The party aims to use the website to cover and promote the emerging “peoples movement”-that means communist controlled mass movements to non red readers.
The new format has the potential of dramatically increasing the number of the 100,000or so online readers we now reach on a monthly basis.
The website will offer news and features in a multi-media format that includes daily and even up to-the-minute news reports, on-site coverage of events, features, podcasts, photographs and even video.
You’ve already heard about the coming AFL-CIO convention in Pittsburgh Sept. 13 to 17. This convention and the events surrounding it will give us the opportunity to test this new venture in an unprecedented way as we bring you coverage of what will be a dynamic labor-led gathering of the new and powerful people’s movement that has exploded onto the scene in the 21st century.
We are taking this so seriously that we intend to have a full team on the ground to bring you up to date on everything.
The labor movement has already put everyone on notice that it will not stand for watering down health care or on the Employee Free Choice Act. It has already put everyone on notice that a second stimulus package on the order of the WPA program of the 1930s is called for. In Pittsburgh it will map the plans to make these things a reality.
Along with Political Affairs and Labor-Up-Front we will have a hospitality suite that will feature a history of our press, the Communist Party and the left in the labor movement. Many at the convention will have the opportunity to see and talk about this history for the first time. You can see why we are so excited about this.
Our side needs to wake up-these guys are far from dead and buried.
