33 Years of Legal Abortion Celebrated by Fighting Fascism
We celebrated 33 years of Roe v. Wade guaranteeing safe and legal abortions by protesting fascism in San Francisco as a few thousand mostly white petty bourgeois Bush supporters marched for fascism under the guise of opposing abortion. We were at least 10,000 strong, which is good, but we can and must do better. We must celebrate 34 years of legal abortion next year with a rally at Justin Herman Plaza and a march on Market street.
We celebrated 33 years of Roe v.

We were at least 10,000 strong, which is good, but we can and must do better. NEXT YEAR, WE MUST CELEBRATE 34 YEARS OF LEGAL ABORTIONS WITH A RALLY AT JUSTIN HERMAN PLAZA. Get the permit now, those of you who get permits for these things. Some of our pro-abortion people had a huge banner, drum corps and portable loudspeaker at Justin Herman Plaza but we should have our rally at Justin Herman Plaza, and then march on Market Street. There is no reason for the pro-abortion community to be on the defensive in San Francisco. If we see these fascists at Justin Herman Plaza, they must be surrounded and marched to their cars and buses, which came not only from San Francisco and the rest of the Bay Area, but as far as Fresno and Merced. We had great pro-abortion marches in 1989 and 1992, and we must have them again. It is no accident that various fascist sections of churches are organizing anti-abortion, anti-women hate marches in the heart of pro-abortion San Francisco. This is all part of building a movement to bolster the fascist agenda of the capitalist class of the US, which needs to be resisted at every stage if we are all to survive. These hatemongers are the petty bourgeoisie: the managers, small business owners and the police who have a piece of the American dream, but are constantly threatened by the economics of capitalism, and due primarily to their white skin color, are susceptible to fascist, scapegoating ideologies which attack women, gays, and non-whites and promote superstition and fascism instead of class struggle and workingclass unity to get rid of capitalism and its profit motive. The petty bourgeoisie were the backbone of fascism in Nazi Germany and the same is true in Nazi USA. WE ALSO SAW WHY OUR SCHOOLS OUR CLOSING: THE POLICE HAVE THE MONEY. There were hundreds of San Francisco police at this demonstration, protecting the fascists of course, and they drove away in unmarked cars, on motorcycles, in police cars and on SamTrans buses. Mind you, these are San Francisco police commandeering San Mateo County buses. Each cop makes $80,000 to $150,000 per year plus benefits, each good for saving one classroom that has been closed. Since the police cannot possibly prevent crime if they wanted to as the cause of crime is lack of education and social services, it is time to SHUT DOWN THE POLICE DEPARTMENT and transfer the entire police budget to the SAN FRANCISCO PUBLIC SCHOOLS. There were two pro-abortion parties at our demonstration: socialist Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party. That should make things very clear to everyone. We saw Democrats marching in the fascist hate parade. We know that Hillary Clinton and John Kerry want more anti-abortion Democrats, and in fact, the Democratic Party has anti-abortion politicians in it, including John Kerry and Al Gore and Dennis Kucinich, all with a voting record of anti-abortion. Kerry even promised to appoint anti-abortion judges. I am glad I went, and I will attend again and again, so long as I have the strength to chant: ANTI-ABORTION IS A COVER FOR FASCISM! RIGHT TO LIFE, THAT'S A LIE, YOU DON'T CARE IF WOMEN DIE! RACIST, SEXIST, ANTI-GAY, FASCIST BIGOTS GO AWAY! FREE ABORTION ON DEMAND WITH NO RESTRICTIONS AND NO APOLOGIES!
