Dear Comrades

prisonIn the last issue, we intro­duced the his­tory of “Dear Com­rades,” a read­ers’ let­ters sec­tion inspired by pages from the Ital­ian news­pa­per Lotta Con­tinua. Grap­pling with a chang­ing class com­po­si­tion, their orga­ni­za­tion solicited writ­ings from an increas­ingly het­ero­ge­neous base of work­ers, mak­ing space for deeper polit­i­cal coor­di­na­tion across the class. Reviv­ing that prac­tice here, we present six more dis­patches, each from a sec­toral strug­gle with an imme­di­ate rela­tion­ship to the state.
