Socialist City Councilor Kshama Sawant is coming to Oakland to discuss how class struggle politics beat Amazon in Seattle.

Through Kshama’s office, we’ve won:
- The first $15/hr minimum wage in the country, launching the 15 Now movement nationally
- A tax on Amazon’s profits to build affordable, green housing in Seattle
- The nation’s first ban on caste discrimination
- Caps on late fees for renters in Seattle

Kshama only takes an average worker’s wage, donating the rest to a solidarity fund to support working class & social movements.

Now Workers Strike Back, initiated by Kshama and Socialist Alternative, is building a movement to take the struggle nationwide.

Come to a meeting and rally with the Socialist that didn’t sell out!
