Our Mission

The weapon of criticism cannot, of course, replace criticism by weapons, material force must be overthrown by material force; but theory also becomes a material force as soon as it has gripped the masses.Karl Marx, 1844

Liberation School

Liberation School is an educational site for activists and fighters created by the Party for Socialism and Liberation. Maintained by a core editorial collective of PSL members, we’re committed to providing political and historical clarity to the burning issues of our movement. The socialist digital school is for both PSL members and friends as well as all progressive and revolutionary activists.

In addition to in-depth articles, analysis, and Party documents, Liberation School features a growing number of online courses as well as study and discussion guides to help a new generation of revolutionaries learn, study, and apply Marxist theory.

About the PSL

The Party for Socialism and Liberation is a working-class party of leaders and activists from many different struggles, founded to promote the movement for revolutionary change.

Capitalism—the system in which all wealth and power is held by a tiny group of billionaires and their state—is the source of the main problems confronting humanity today: imperialist war, poverty, exploitation, layoffs, unemployment, racism, sexism, lesbian/gay/bi/trans oppression, environmental destruction, mass imprisonment, unionbusting and more.

We are fighting for socialism, a system where the wealth of society belongs to those who produce it—the workers—and is used in a planned and sustainable way for the benefit of all. In place of greed, domination and exploitation, we stand for solidarity, friendship and cooperation between all peoples.

The Party for Socialism and Liberation seeks to bring together leaders and organizers from the many struggles taking place across the country. The most crucial requirement for membership is the dedication to undertake this most important and most necessary of all tasks—building a new revolutionary workers’ party in the heart of world imperialism.

At the same time as we aim for revolution in this country, we stand for defense of the existing workers’ states, the national liberation movements, and for workers and oppressed people around the world. The magnitude of our tasks will be matched by our determination to win.
