Originally published: Left Voice by PTS (Socialist Workers Party) (May 2017 )  | - Posted Dec 08, 2021

The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggle.

Those words, written in the 19th century, continue to ring true. In Marx is Back, a young Argentine worker begins to read the Communist Manifesto and dreams about meeting Marx.

The mini series takes place in modern-day Argentina, where workers bear the brunt of the economic crisis.In this episode, the protagonist, Martin, who works at a print shop begins to read the Manifesto and to see that society is divided into classes.

These videos were produced by the PTS (Socialist Workers Party) of Argentina in 2013.
