With this issue, we are changing our name to WORKERS VOICE. This paper has appeared in many cities for as long as 6 years under the name THE WORKER, We are changing our name because last year a group of people who formerly, worked on THE WORKER gave up trying to put out a newspaper working people can use as a tool in their struggles.

Instead, under the name THE WORKER, they put out newspapers which are full of noisy slogans, long reports glorifying their own petty antics, attacks on the efforts of the laboring people of China to build socialism, and precious little news of the important battles of the present period. Turning back attacks, mobilizing people, forging unity, winning gains, advancing step by step to revolution – none of this is important to them. They want a newspaper that is a pulpit for them to preach their oh-so-wonderful ideas from.

We do not want to be associated with this garbage. The WORKERS VOICE will carry out the tradition of the old WORKER. The WORKERS VOICE will be a paper that promotes the demands of the common people, the short and long term interests of the workers. A paper that tells the truth about what’s happening in the world. A paper whose purpose is to build the struggle and generate enthusiasm and revolutionary understanding among every one fighting to change this rotten system.
