Hello from the Barnard-Columbia International Socialist Organization:
A reminder that we’re meeting up at 6:10pm at the 116th & Broadway gates tomorrow (Saturday) to take the train down to the LGBT center for a NYC-wide meeting on challenging the rise of the right wing in US politics. Don’t miss it:
THE RISE OF THE RIGHT!
What We Can Do to Stop It
Protests have been rising in the face of austerity measures on working-class livelihoods, environmental degradation, right-wing bigotry and hate crimes. Yet the so-called “party of the people”, the Democrats, continues to align its principles with corporate dollars and backs down when Glenn Beck and the right speak up to bash immigrants, LGBT, and Muslim people.
What gave rise to the Right was a demoralization amongst people with the Democratic party and electoral politics. Working people are looking for an actual vehicle for change alongside those in struggle ghting in solidarity for justice, equality, and democracy. What we need is a working-class alternative with its own set of demands. is meeting is about figuring out just how to do that.
