IN defence of all minorities and oppressed sectors
to the capitalist crisis, social misery is increasing for the specially
oppressed, in particular, for women, who are one half of the population of the
world. This has forced their militant participation in all social fronts of
struggle of the working class and oppressed, due also to the increased
proletarianization of women. The consequences of capitalist decline are a direct
threat to the stability of the working class family.
ethnic groups and nationally oppressed are often the first to be hit in this
decline of capitalism, the IV International stand with this strata in its fight.
This is increasingly so in metropolitan countries, and especially so of the U.S.
among African American, Chicano and Hispanic population in general, Native
American, Arab Americans, and Muslims. The special oppression of of lesbians,
gays, transgendered, etc. means that these groups are often the first victims of
reactionary attacks, specially by the Church.
attacks are meant to divide the working class, to fight against them is a duty
for the vanguard of the workers. The IV International struggles ceaselessly for
the working class to advance the cause of struggle of these oppressed strata.
The IV International calls on the oppressed to have no faith or illusions in the
petty bourgeois ideologies of sectoral liberation. Only the workers revolution
can guarantee the historical lifting of special oppression. It is only through
the struggle for the unity of the more oppressed with the whole working class,
black, brown, red, yellow and with the white, the women with men, the gay with
the heterosexual, that the workers social revolution will be won.
