Building the Movement

Chris Crass writes a book review on the book Towards Land, Work and Power: Charting a Path of Resistance to U.S.-Led Imperialism in the blog Red Flags. The book was done by members of POWER (People Organized to Win Employment Rights), an organization based in San Francisco.
A key contribution of the book is their centering of race, gender and sexuality in their class analysis. The authors review how the local ruling class planed the development of the Bay Area and have advanced their strategy for decades. The ruling class thinks and acts big and plans for the long-term. The authors not only argue that we can do this, they’re working on it and share the beginnings of where they’re at in the third chapter.
