Theoretical Practice in the New Communist Movement: An Interview with Paul Saba

In one sense the his­to­ry of the NCM can be summed up as “a moment of sec­tar­i­an­ism and dog­ma­tism.” In anoth­er sense, how­ev­er, the NCM was more than the sum total of its sec­tar­i­an and dog­mat­ic errors. It attempt­ed to keep alive the rem­nants of the mass move­ments of the 1960s, it orga­nized work­ers, built left cau­cus­es in unions, mobi­lized strug­gles around fun­da­men­tal issues of racism, women’s rights, immi­grant rights, and built move­ments in sol­i­dar­i­ty with lib­er­a­tion strug­gles around the world.
