The International Socialist Organization (ISO) is committed to building an organization that participates in the struggles for justice and liberation today--and, ultimately, for a future socialist society. ISO has branches in many cities across the United States working to build a number of struggles. The ISO stands in the tradition of revolutionary socialists Karl Marx, V.I. Lenin and Leon Trotsky in the belief that workers themselves--the vast majority of the population--are the only force that can lead the fight to win a socialist society. In 1978 ISO starting publishing a newsletter Southern Africa Solidarity that reported on developments in the struggles in Southern Africa and solidarity work related to those struggles in the U.S.; it is not known for how many years the newsletter was published.  (Source: ISO documents on this website; and the ISO website accessed July 31, 2014; and Wikipedia accessed July 31, 2014.)
