Even in their weakened situation, the unions have the power to stop the
white nationalists in their tracks. Instead of putting out an occasional
statement and occasionally endorsing a march or rally, the union leaders
can call out their members and families to lead a real united, working
class opposition to the white nationalists.

In Berkeley CA, for example, the white nationalists are supposed to be
trying to make a statement on August 27. A

*Scenes from Oakland’s General Strike of 1946. This strike was organized
out of the Central Labor Council. It did it then; it can do it again now.*

“March Against Hate” is planned in response. The Alameda County Central
Labor Council has endorsed this march as have a few local unions. But how
many of their members will know? What will the Central Labor Council
actually *do* to get its affiliated local unions involved? What will the
leaders of the affiliated locals do to get their members involved?

We should be clear: These white nationalists are not just a threat to
people of color, not just a threat to left protesters (such as the young
woman who was murdered by them in Charlotsville); they are a threat to the
entire working class and to the only working class organizations in the US
– the unions. In the past, these groups have been used to attack workers on
strike and to attack union organizers. They will do so again...."
