¡Ya basta! Fight the ICE raids!Added to the calendar on Monday Feb 15th, 2016 7:59 AM
On Christmas Eve, the Obama administration declared an intensification of ICE policies that hope to round up and deport women, children, and families fleeing violence in Central America. The operation has struck fear into Latino immigrant communities nationwide, but also provoked new organizing and resistance — including here in Sacramento.
The Democratic Party presents itself as an ally of the Latino community, but this administration has deported more people than any other president in recent history. Join us for a discussion of the politics behind the raids and what we can do to take on deportations, the cruel conditions of the detention centers, and the broader mistreatment and criminalization of immigrants. We will examine the lessons of the powerful 2006 movement, so as to build a new era of mass struggle for full rights for all immigrants.
Reviving the Movement for Socialism in the United States
"Socialism" is the word on everybody's lips. It was looked up in online dictionaries more than any other word in 2015. Tens of millions of people have heard Bernie Sanders present on and debate what he calls "democratic socialism."
Poor and working people have good reason to seek an alternative to capitalism. Right now, the country's richest 20 capitalists now possess more wealth than the bottom 194 million people! It is a system that relies on war, bigotry and state violence.
Come hear what the PSL means by socialism and why we believe it is essential to again grow the movement for socialism as a major political force in the United States. Learn about how the socialist vision connects to the movements for immigrant rights and find out what it means to be in a socialist party.
