Read the ‘Appeal to Revolutionaries’:
“It is the responsibility of revolutionary parties and organizations, armed with revolutionary theory and decades of combined revolutionary practice, to ready the masses for this political period and those to come. In order to do this, the revolutionary forces, scattered geographically and politically, must begin to unite. The Socialist Unity Party proposes a first step towards this unity: We must commit to defend each other from state attack.”
