Today’s Supreme Court decision marks the latest reactionary escalation against working people, specifically against Women, bodily autonomy, and the right to privacy. Northeast Ohio IWW stands in Solidarity anytime the rights of workers are attacked, uniformly condemning the decision of the court.

Now more than ever it is important for the working class to organize and struggle with our fellow workers being pressed from the courts, whether that decision comes from the Supreme Court or the State Court of Ohio.
