Coalition protests Trans Pacific Partnership on April 2
By Cindy Gordon
Posted on April 10, 2015 by the Los Angeles County Central Committee
Los Angeles activists gathered in front of Congressman Xavier Becerra’s (D-34) office Thursday, April 2 for a rally and press conference to persuade him to reverse his position on the dangerous Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) bill and undemocratic Fast Track authority.
The action was organized by the Peace and Freedom Party Climate Justice Task Force and had participation by comrades from the Martin Luther King Coalition and Anti-Racist Action, as well as some labor activists and others. We chanted "Hey-Hey, Ho Ho, TPP has Got to Go” and "Well come back until we smash Fast Track”. Becerra must’ve heard us because we were right under his window. Although the turn-out was not what we had hoped for, both KPFK radio and KABC television news crews showed up.

To the Santa Cruz City Council
Posted on March 24 by the Santa Cruz County Central Committee
This letter was sent to the Santa Cruz City Council in advance of a March 24 public hearing on the city's acquisition of a Lenco BearCat military vehicle (see "Give back The BearCat").
March 22, 2015
Mayor Lane and Members of the Santa Cruz City Council:
The Santa Cruz County Peace and Freedom Party opposes the purchase of the Lenco BEARCAT agreed to by the Santa Cruz City Council at their December 9th meeting. We have followed developments closely since that time and find that the situation has not changed enough either in the potential for military use or in procedures for military acquisitions by a city department. The $100,000 threshold now being proposed is far too high and does not allow for transparency to the taxpayers who are footing the bill.
A Living Wage for Mothers and Other Caregivers
Posted on March 11, 2015 by the Webmaster
At its March 9, 2015 State Central Committee meeting, the Peace and Freedom Party endorsed a petition campaign being organized by the British organization Global Women's Strike. Here is the petition.
Petition to ALL governments: A living wage for mothers and other caregivers
Caring for others is the foundation of every society, yet this work, done mostly by women, is devalued and underfunded.
We demand that:
1. Every worker be paid a living wage, including mothers and other caregiverss.
2. National and international budgets redirect financial support and resources to mothers and other caregivers.

Save the South Central Farm (Again)
By Eugene Ruyle
Posted on February 14, 2015 by the Communications Committee
Update: on March 9, 2015, the State Central Committee adopted the following resolution, which was transmitted to the EIR Analysis Section of the Los Angeles City Planning Department the next day: "We ask that the Draft EIR for the 4051 South Alameda Street Project be re-written to give fair consideration to all alternatives and that the City of Los Angeles listen to the voices of the people of Los Angeles and reject the proposed development, thereby preserving the land for agricultural purposes."
For twelve years, from 1994 to 2006, the South Central Farm was an oasis of ecological diversity in the industrial wasteland of South Central Los Angeles. In 1994, Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley dedicated the land that became the South Central Farm to the people, selling it to the Harbor Department which issued a permit for its agricultural use under the supervision of the L.A. Regional Food Bank. The South Central Farmers accepted responsibility for maintaining the Farm for the health of the neighborhood.
The 14 acres were farmed by about 350 families, mostly immigrants from Mexico and Central America, who grew an estimated 100 to 150 species of plants for food, herbal medicine, and spiritual uses. This diversity led UCLA to establish an agricultural research station there.
Black Lives Matter
Posted on December 22, 2014 by the Webmaster
This statement was issued by California State Chair Debra Reiger on December 21, 2014.
Michael Brown was shot dead by police in Ferguson, Mo. Eric Garner was strangled while in a police chokehold in Staten Island, New York. Neither man had committed any more than a petty crime, and even that is questionable because neither man had a chance to be tried.
These and other recent police murders of unarmed black men, and the fact that the state authorized killers will not face prosecution, have sparked rallies and actions against police violence all over the county.
The Peace and Freedom Party is an open, multi-tendency, movement-oriented socialist party. We are united in our common commitment to socialism, democracy, feminism and unionism and our common opposition to capitalism, imperialism, racism, sexism and elitism.
These by-laws do not define socialism, nor do they identify the strategies and tactics of how to achieve socialism. We agree that socialism is necessary and that it will open up a democratic decision-making process for appropriate use of resources and distribution of labor.
