The Peace and Freedom Party presents
Lies, Bribes, and Elections
Karl Marx grasped the essence of capitalist democracy splendidly when he said that the oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which representatives of the ruling class shall represent and repress them, but even Marx would be shocked by our 2016 Elections. We are inviting speakers to address selected aspects of electoral politics in America: Karen Bernal, former chair of the Progressive Caucus of the California Democratic Party and co-chair of the California Sanders delegation at the DNC; Brenda Zeman, who teaches anthropology at the University of Saskatchewan, will discuss the recent federal election in Canada, what was promised, what has happened; Dave Kadlecek, of the Peace and Freedom Party, current chair of the Santa Clara County Citizens' Advisory Commission on Elections: and Cat Woods, of the Peace and Freedom Party, will focus on possible solutions (copies of our Peace and Freedom Party Platform will be available at the forum).

Sat, Nov 5, 2016 • 2:00 PM-4:30 PM
At the Starry Plough Pub, 3101 Shattuck Ave, at Prince St in Berkeley

FREE! Please buy food & drink at the Pub. All ages welcome! FREE!

This is part of our on-going Socialist Forum Series on the first Saturday of every month. Doors open at 2 pm and the program will start promptly at 2:30 pm. The forum will end by 4:30 pm, but folks can stay and talk as long as you like.

The Peace and Freedom Party, born from the civil rights and anti-war movements of the 1960s, is committed to socialism, democracy, ecology, feminism, racial equality, and internationalism.
