“American Lives Are Not More Important Than Other People’s Lives”

Bob Avakian, BAsics 5:7

There has been throughout this election endless discussion of how trade deals like NAFTA have hurt Americans and nothing about what the treaties and trade deals that the U.S. has imposed have done—whole economies have been dominated, plundered and gutted by the very same powerful interests dictating what is being discussed in these elections. This is pointing people in the entirely wrong direction and distorting the character of the problem—and offering NO solution.
