Delight with your article

I want to express my sincere gratitude and delight at reading the excellently written Aug. 8 Militant article entitled “National Federation of Blind traces its aims, history, fight for rights.” Jane Roland and others captured the substance and spirit of the convention held July 5-10 in New Orleans and the movement it represents.

Just as on picket lines, at union strike actions, and on the doorsteps of working people around the world, the volunteers who staffed the Pathfinder table did not merely participate as vendors but fully as participants in the entire event, which was noted by visitors to the table and in discussions with these worker-correspondents. The people’s movement of the blind is a microcosm of our society, and in its majority comprises workers from every demographic.

The article also accurately reflected the tremendous work of the volunteers dedicated to making Pathfinder books and materials more widely available and accessible to those of us who are blind or print disabled. This will certainly enrich the discussion and involve more of us in the growing struggle of our class against the wholesale assault by the capitalists on our living and working conditions and upon our very lives and those of our families.
