The urgent need is therefore to establish the principle of class defense against the financiers and their retainers both left and right. But how? Obama’s betrayals reveal him as a committed Wall Street puppet. He has sold out the Wisconsin pro-union and recall efforts, and waged a merciless campaign of union busting against teachers. One year after their heyday, the anarchists of Occupy Wall Street have failed to grab any piece of political power. Some deluded individuals thought that Ron Paul might save them, but Ron Paul turned out to be pushing the most fascist austerity of anybody in sight. Any illusions that OWS or the libertarians represented a real alternative have long since collapsed.

The only method that can fill the resulting void is a united front of existing organizations and individuals coming together to cooperate in the fight for an emergency platform of class-based demands. This process must begin in New York City on October 27.

What is fascist austerity"?

Once the financial oligarchy has looted the economy of its productive capacity, it establishes an austerity policy, through the union of government and corporate power, which we call "fascist austerity", to continue looting the economy by depriving the people of their basic needs.
