Portland International Socialist Organization says
In room 338

The capitalist system has from its beginning driven nation states to war for profit and empire. Today capitalist powers and their states compete with each other to divide the world into spheres of influence. This inter-imperial rivalry is the root cause of the wars that have wracked the system from the First World War to Bush’s Iraq War and Obama’s drone war to the horror being visited on the Syria people today by international powers and the Syrian State.

Marxists believe that international solidarity against war and national oppression is the duty of all genuine revolutionaries. It is part of the struggle to unite the global working class against our common exploiters and oppressors.
