Attacks on right to free speech are blow to the working class

....Violence has no place in the working-class movement. Shouting down speakers, shutting down meetings or banning the expression of opinions you don't agree with prevents the debate necessary to reach political clarity, build a mighty proletarian movement and fight for political power.

....Only by considering all ideas in an atmosphere of free debate and discussion can working people decide how to effectively oppose imperialism and war; fight for higher wages and unions; push back police violence; win affirmative action in hiring for African-Americans, women and all victims of discrimination; and build a labor party based on the unions.
