After Kshama Sawant's election victory, Socialist Alternative is a rapidly growing organization. Join us for this discussion and learn how you can join Socialist Alternative and help build a chapter in Portland.
Ramy Khalil - Campaign Manager for the historic election of Kshama Sawant to Seattle City Council
Capitalism has created a world of unending crisis. Poverty and unemployment, war and oppression, environmental destruction and a bleak future stalk working people and youth. Globally, mass resistance by working people and youth demanding an alternative have met the remorseless attacks by the richest 1%.
But what's the alternative? Under the relentless hammer blows of capitalism, there is growing interest in Socialism. A 2011 poll revealed a majority of those 18-29 years old view socialism favorably. Moreover, in Seattle, Socialist Alternative ran Kshama Sawant for city council and won with nearly 100,000 votes for an open socialist who did not accept a dime in corporate cash. Since this ground-breaking victory, Socialist Alternative, Kshama Sawant, and others launched 15 Now to fight for a $15/hour minimum wage in Seattle and nationwide.
Come consider joining Socialist Alternative and help build a chapter in Portland that can strengthen movements for social and environmental justice!
VENUE CHANGE: We were recently informed, and we verified, that the Old Wives' Tales cafe has an anti-worker, anti-union history. So we have moved the location of this meeting to the American Federation of Musicians union hall at 325 N.E. 20th Avenue, Portland, OR 97232. Please spread the word about this change to anyone who you have invited to the meeting.
