Sample text

We need to show how issues like AIDS, global warming, local environmental degradation, the destruction of local cultural traditions are inherently Globalization in question 33 class issues, and how building a community in class struggle can better alleviate the conditions of oppression across a broad spectrum of social action. This is not, I emphasize, a plea for pluralism but a plea that we seek to uncover the class content of a wide array of anti-capitalist concerns. This will encounter opposition from within the radical Left, for to insist upon a class formulation invites dismissal as pure sectarianism of the old-guard sort (to say nothing of being rejected as passé in academia).

London, Paris, and Rome are far more immigrant cities than they used to be, making immigration a far more significant issue worldwide (including within the labor movement itself) than has ever been the case before (even Tokyo is caught up in the process). By the same token, organizing labor in the face of the considerable ethnic, racial, religious, and cultural diversity generated out of migratory movements also poses particular problems that the socialist movement has not often found easy to solve.

This work needs to be renewed. We need first to understand the production of uneven spatio-temporal development and the intense contradictions that now exist within that field not only for capitalist trajectories of development (entailing, as they do, a great deal of self-destruction, devaluation, and bankruptcy) but also for populations rendered increasingly vulnerable to the violence of down-sizing, unemployment, collapse of services, and degradation in living standards and in environmental qualities.
