The “New Worker” was selected as the title of this publication out of a deep regard for the old “Worker,” which ceased publication during 1968. The “Worker,” for many decades represented the best political trends of the American Communist movement and the American proletariat. It established along and courageous history of proletarian revolutionary journalism. Then, for over a decade and a half the “Worker” was used by the revisionist right-wing clique within the Party for their purposes. Having drawn upon the revolutionary heritage of the paper and using it for their own counter-revolutionary purposes, the revisionist clique headed by Gus Hall saw fit to murder the “Worker.” The death of the “Worker” took place politically many years before it was recognized as officially dead by the Hall clique. The “New Worker” is just what it says. It is a revolutionary publication of the American proletariat reflecting its political interests, carrying forward the revolutionary traditions of the old “Worker” in the struggle for the overthrow of US Imperialism and establishing the dictatorship of the proletariat in the United States of America.
