The vote in Britain to exit the European Union (EU) is a victory for
those who believe in the right of self-determination and who reject the
pro-corporate, austerity policies of the political elites in EU. The
vote says no to the EU’s vision of a world run by and for big business.
It is also a rejection of the European political elite and their
contempt for ordinary people.
Unfortunately, the rejection was also motivated by attacks on immigrants and refugees, which must be opposed. That is a defeat.
Brexit vote is one more sign that voters are in revolt against the
rigged economy and the rigged political system that created it. People
want change and they will get it one way or the other.
The challenge now is to
expand the political movement in the United States, Britain and beyond,
that opposes austerity and the rule of bankers – including destructive
corporate trade agreements like the Trans Pacific Partnership and the
TTIP. We must also defend the rights of workers and immigrants, and
adopt sustainable economic policies that lift up the quality of life for
all while transitioning to 100% clean energy as an urgent priority to
avoid the worst impacts of climate change. And we must reject the
catastrophic military adventures that have caused so much of the
immigration crisis to start with, while simultaneously bankrupting our
Together we can create a world that works for us all,
that puts people, planet and peace over profit.
