The Class Character of the Trump Administration and the Collapse of the Democratic Party

Thursday, November 17 at 7:30pm
61 Evans Hall, UC Berkeley


The Trump administration will be the most reactionary in American history. At the same time, the election of Donald Trump heralds a period of renewed, explosive social convulsions. The International Youth and Students for Social Equality (IYSSE) are preparing for the coming upheavals by relentlessly opposing attempts to divide the working class on the basis on race, nationality or gender.

The only way forward in a fight against the danger posed by the Trump administration is a complete break with the Democratic Party, whose politics of war and social austerity made Trump's election possible in the first place. Workers, students and youth must take up the fight for socialism!
