The Deepening Economic Crisis
The U.S. ruling class funds wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and buys the bombs and tanks that kill Palestinians in Gaza. Meanwhile, everyday we hear of more layoffs and large corporations going bankrupt. The politicians are spending billions of our tax dollars to bail out banking monopolies without spending a dime for working people who are losing their homes, jobs and health care. During times of economic hardship we poor and working people are asked to pay more for less services. Why is the economic crisis put on our backs while the CEO's make millions and the bankers, who got us into this situation in the first place, get trillion-dollar bailouts from Washington?

The California Budget Crisis
On the state level, the governor is hoping to solve the California fiscal crisis by slashing $6 billion from services, education and public transportation. The proposed cuts would mean reduced services across the board, including less money for the state's university systems, centers that treat children with disabilities and programs that help the elderly, blind and disabled keep up with rising food costs. We must organize now to resist these criminal cutbacks. Come hear an analysis, discussion ways we can fight back.
