¡Troy Davis presente!
Police riot evokes outrage
 JOIN uS OCT 8-9
Workers World Party Conference
By Dianne MathiowetzAtlanta
Sept. 26 — The outrage over the state of Georgia’s ex-ecution of Troy Davis at 11:08 p.m. on Sept. 21 has notabated. Rather, his name has become a code word forresistance and struggle. Youth chanted, “We are Troy Davis!” when attackedand arrested by New York City police on Sept. 23 andSept. 24 during marches that took to the streets, de-nouncing his execution and rebelling against the rule of 
prot over people.
In Atlanta and elsewhere, people are meeting to strat-
egize on how to carry the ght against the death penalty 
and the prison-industrial complex to higher levels, chal-lenging a class structure that is imbued with racism and
only serves prot.
The Davis family will hold a public funeral for Troy onOct. 1 in Savannah, Ga., and encourages all of his sup-porters to visibly show that they are heeding his call to build a movement for justice for all. For more informa-tion, go to www.aiusa.org.In the days leading up to Troy’s execution and since, acommon question asked by the corporate media is why this case caused more than 1 million people to sign on-line petitions demanding clemency; brought out peoplein more than 300 cities on Sept. 16 for an InternationalDay of Solidarity with Troy Davis; and compelled thou-
sands to continue to ght for his life, right up to the mo
-ment that the lethal injection procedure began, after theSupreme Court refused to stay the execution. Youth, not even born or only very young children whenTroy went on trial, make up a large percentage of thoseincensed by a judicial system that favors technicalitiesand deadlines over innocence and fairness. People of allages are now withstanding the failures of this capitalistsystem to provide jobs, education, health care, housing,a clean environment, peace and equality. So many mil-lions — not just in the U.S., but worldwide — have seen
rsthand that the laws are written to benet the rich and
those in power, not to provide justice and fairness. Thatis why they recognized the truth of Troy Davis’s situationand responded in such huge numbers.The facts of Troy’s case, told on the Internet, bloggedand tweeted and covered on corporate TV, radio and innewspapers, became well known to millions who couldrecount the injustices and failings of the original trial

 Join s at te Workers WorldParty National Conference
By Kathy Durkin
Do you want to discuss the global economic crisis?
Strategize on how to ght for jobs, health care, housing
and education? Help to organize a struggle against thisracist, anti-worker system? Fight for a socialist future?If you answer “yes” to these questions, then the Work-ers World Party national conference in New York City isthe place for you to be on the weekend of Oct. 8 and 9.This will be a time to analyze the global capitalist crisis— using the tools of Marxism — and its worsening impact
on working and poor people. It will be a time for reec
-tion, discussion and the exchange of ideas and tactics.It will be a working conference — aimed at building theresistance movement and organizing a national, coordi-
nated ghtback.
 WWP invites left, progressive and working-class forc-es to attend and to join in the spirit of unity to buildthe class struggle here and to help strengthen the world- wide anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist and pro-socialistmovements. At a time of staggering unemployment and soaringpoverty — when the government at all levels is cutting jobs and safety net programs — anger is growing daily. Yet there are no real jobs programs, no increases in socialprograms or other assistance. The crisis has hit tens of millions of people here and untold numbers abroad, withno end in sight.Larry Holmes, a WWP leader, explains its impact:“The debt crisis and bank solvency crisis in Europe hasnow become the focus of the world capitalist crisis. It isa big deal that affects the entire world. What have glo- balization and technology done? What has the world- wide socialization of labor resulted in? They have madethe crisis in any region of the world immediate, with agreater and quicker impact on the economic crisis and onthe class struggle here.”Holmes underscored at a recent WWP meeting: “Wemust go over this at the Party conference. We must bringas many of our longtime friends, newly met people fromthe Bronx and around the country, and allies from theprogressive movement and the international struggle.The conference needs to be strong because it comes at a very crucial time.“Everyone should distribute the attractive broadsheet,
 which lists our ghtback program,” Holmes suggested.
“In light of all the important issues, such as launchingthe Food is a Right campaign and the jobs struggle,” hestressed, “if the Party is to be helpful in shedding lighton these serious global developments and explaining our
programmatic response, then we must light a re under
people to come to the conference.“This is a serious event. We are preparing for it in a se-rious way. It could be decisive now and in 2012, with theelection morass. This crisis is facing us and the workingclass here and in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Africa,Latin America — everywhere. Our Party will do our bestto explain the crisis and put forward a line of march.”The racist execution of Troy Davis brings the issue of state repression against oppressed, poor and workingpeople even more to the forefront of the progressive and working-class struggle — and to the WWP conference. Inlight of this atrocity and recent police attacks and arrests,including at the “Occupy Wall Street” protests, the role of the capitalist state will be addressed, too.Conference panels and discussion groups on Saturday,Oct. 8, will take up the deepening world economic cri-sis. Activists from across the country will raise concretestrategies and tactics to help push the class struggle for- ward. Ideas and suggestions are welcomeThat evening there will be a workshop on “What is Workers World Party?” How to join, as well as our po-litical program, perspective and pro-struggle orientation will be taken up. Young activists are organizing a panel entitled, “Rebel
against Capitalism,” which will reect the courageous
and militant role of youth in struggle worldwide and inthe U.S.The WWP conference will be held at the Paul Robe-son complex in the Bronx, N.Y. See www.workersworld.net for the location and schedule, to register and to con-tribute to the event’s expenses. Posted there is literaturerelated to the conference’s themes, including the above-mentioned broadsheet, “Why Are We Fighting for Jobsfor All!” A must-read is the brand-new document by Fred Gold-stein, a leading member of WWP, titled, “Capitalism is ata Dead End: Job Destruction, Overproduction and Crisisin the High Tech Era — a Marxist View.” Also, an appeal for socialist unity sets forth basic te-nets: solidarity with the multinational working class andoppressed peoples here and worldwide, support for self-determination, and opposition to imperialist wars, rac-ism, sexism and gender oppression.
If you want to join the anti-capitalist ghtback, you
know where to be on the second weekend in October.
