May 5, 2018 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx, the greatest philosopher of modern history and the founder of scientific socialism. Marx's call: “Workers of the world unite!” resonates today amid an eruption of the class struggle on every continent. In the first four months of 2018, tens of millions of people have participated in the largest demonstrations and strikes in decades.

The capitalist system, based on the exploitation of the working class, is wracked by crisis.

All over the world, the ruling elites seek to protect their wealth and save this bankrupt system by resorting to war and repression. The governments and corporations are censoring the Internet out of fear that this revolutionary source for information and communication can link workers across the world in a common struggle against inequality, dictatorship and war.

The International Committee of the Fourth International (ICFI) and the World Socialist Web Site are commemorating Marx's birthday alongside May Day, the international day of working class solidarity, with an international online rally with participants from dozens of countries worldwide. Speakers will include leaders of the Fourth International from around the world.
