Attend Rallies Against Fascists

Posted on August 22, 2017 by the webmaster

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 19, 2017

"Attend Rallies Against Fascists," State Chair Urges Peace and Freedom Party Members

"Since the foundation of the Peace and Freedom Party fifty years ago, we have consistently opposed every racist and anti-Semitic demonstration by Nazis, the Klan, and all their open and hidden allies," State Chair Kevin Akin said in San Francisco on Saturday. "These enemies of all working people crave the power to kill millions of Americans, and we need to block them at every turn. In line with long-standing party policy, I ask everyone who possibly can to attend every rally, vigil, and march against the fascists and racists."

"Back in the 1920s, when the Klan and other racist gangs appeared headed for ascendancy, labor and left organizations were able to organize effective opposition in hundreds of towns and cities, and within a few years the Klan could no longer wear its robes and burn its torches in public, despite the support they had from many twisted right-wing politicians. The way to rein in the racist extremists today, too, is to make sure that they cannot appear in any public place without firm and massive opposition. No matter what kind of anti-labor racist reactionary extremist holds forth from the White House, if the people stop their enemies from rallying and recruiting, the Klan and the Nazis and their allies can be stopped. Please, every chance you get, speak out and demonstrate and march against them."

 

NAFTA, Deportations, Workers' Struggles

Posted on August 15, 2017 by the webmaster

Whereas, there is a stepped-up attack on immigrant workers -- documented and undocumented -- in the United States, and NAFTA has been used to pit U.S. workers against Mexican workers to benefit multi-national corporations from the U.S. and around the world, and

Whereas, the escalating attack on immigrant workers and people of color is a threat to all workers and to organized labor in the United States; the immigrant community and their children in schools are being terrorized by ICE and by the racist attacks on immigrants, and

Whereas, NAFTA has been used to privatize railroads, telecom, oil, education and the dismantling of Mexico's agricultural industry, causing forced migration of tens of millions of people from their homelands in Mexico, and

Preamble to Our By-laws

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.

Voter Registration

In California, voter registration is very important to political parties. The very existence of a political party as "ballot-qualified" is determined by the number of votes its statewide candidates receive or by the number of voters registered with the party. As the only feminist socialist political party on the California ballot, it is imperative that the Peace and Freedom Party continues as a qualified party. Quite simply, the Peace and Freedom Party will not be able to provide Californians with candidates that will represent us unless we register and vote Peace and Freedom.

For more information about registering to vote in California, you can visit the Secretary of State's website.
