Whatever the motivation of the Wikileakers, the far left is using the leaks to motivate their base. Andrea Pason and Billy Wharton are co-chairs of the Socialist Party USA. They just published this statement in LINKS, an international marxist journal run by the Australian Socialist Alliance.
The latest Wikileaks revelations should be a call to action for all Americans. It is time to tear down the empire that has been created in their name. Two tasks are first and foremost. We need to create a vibrant movement to end the wars being waged in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. No more occupations, no more military surges and no more drone attacks. Simultaneously, we must demand that the prison facility at Guantanamo Bay be closed immediately. Achieving such demands will open a political space to more directly challenge the centre of the military industrial complex by calling for an immediate reduction of the military budget by 50% and the closing of all US military bases abroad.
