Message of Solidarity at the Passing of
Revolutionary Communist Fighter Leslie Feinberg
November 26, 2014
Many people involved in the fight for a better world, are at this time
feeling a great sadness at the loss of Leslie Feinberg, whose
contributions in the working-class movement were vital. Leslie
Feinberg dedicated her life to the struggle against oppression and for
Her work and writing has been an inspiration to social justice and
LGBTQ+ rights activists throughout her life and in her passing it is
even more necessary to follow the example she left for us.
Leslie Feinberg believed in the right of self-determination of
oppressed people and oppressed nations. You could see her organizing
at a mass labor rally one afternoon, in the evening speaking against
war and occupation , then fighting for LGBTQ+ rights, for immigrants
rights, and speaking out in defense of Cuba.
We remember Feinberg’s words when speaking on the topic of creating an
international progressive LGBTQ+ movement: "I do not believe that our
sexuality, gender expression and bodies can be liberated without
making a ferocious mobilization against imperialist war and racism an
integral part of our struggle."
We honor her memory by learning from her commitment and dedication to
the struggle of oppressed people and oppressed nations, for justice
and for self-determination.
Fire This Time Movement for Social justice offers our sincere
condolences to Leslie Feinberg’s partner Minnie Bruce Pratt, her
family, friends, co-fighters in Workers World Party and all the
activists following her footstep in fighting for a better and just
