New School ISSE
ISSE Mission Statement:
The global capitalist system is engulfed in the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression. Social inequality has soared to virtually unprecedented heights, unemployment has plunged tens of millions of workers to poverty, and the lack of decent education has dashed the prospects of broad layers of youth. It is in these conditions that the International Students for Social Equality (ISSE), the student group of the Socialist Equality Party (see wsws.org), intervenes to raise the consciousness of students and workers, and to unite them in a common struggle for basic social rights: a well paying job, a good education, high quality health care, access to culture, etc. This requires, above all, a break from the Democrats and Republicans and the building of a mass party of workers and youth based on a socialist program.
ISSE Goals and Objectives:
The ISSE seeks to engage students and workers in a struggle for the political independence of the working class, to raise their level of consciousness and unite them on the basis of a socialist program. This involves a variety of activities, including holding regular meetings to examine current and historical events from a Marxist perspective, organizing lectures and film screenings, distributing material from wsws.org, and organizing independent committees for workers and students.
