The coops are giving birth to a new revolutionary force. This revolutionary force has before it the unfinished business of setting the masses of workers in motion around issues which directly affect their lives. All issues which affect the existence of the masses of workers have their origin in the economic system of capitalism: for instance, high inflation rate, massive unemployment, energy and food shortages, adulterated food, economic exploitation and social oppression based on class, race and sex, etc. Since these issues directly affect the masses of working class people and their origins are traced to the economic system of capitalism, it is our task to help further the working class struggle toward the overthrow of monopoly capitalism; not only by furnishing nutritional and cheap food, but most importantly-- the task of getting ourselves together theoretically and organizationally for serious farmer and worker struggle.
We now present to you our thoughts and program on the transformation of the coops into a tool to aid this struggle.
