Flyers posted around University of Wisconsin-Madison promising that “Only Socialism Can Defeat COVID” were promoting a Feb. 11 event held by the Madison, WI branch of the International Marxist Tendency (IMT).
According to the flyers, “capitalism offers no solutions” to COVID-19 and only makes things worse, as the organization criticizes solutions that involve “get[ting] back to work.” As Campus Reform previously reported , The IMT is an organization that supports a “socialist transformation of society.” They have branches across the U.S. and other parts of the world.
The organization actively recruits young people and promotes itself on college campuses, with the slogan, “Join the fight for socialism in our lifetime!”
Campus Reform reached out to the Madison, WI, branch of IMT to find out what exactly was discussed during the virtual event.
“We discussed how under capitalism the COVID-19 pandemic has been mismanaged and constantly narrow interest for profit has been prioritized over human lives,” IMT representative Alex Gillis explained.
“We do believe there is the science, production capability, and wealth to stop the pandemic, however, under capitalism, these resources are put for the narrow interest of the wealthiest,” he continued.
The proposed solution, Gillis explained, was to be nothing short of the “international socialization of healthcare.”

We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
