We are socialists because we reject an economic order based on private profit, alienated labor, gross inequalities of wealth and power, discrimination based on race and sex, and brutality and violence in defense of the status quo. We are socialists because we share a vision of a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, feminism, racial equality, and non-oppressive relationships. We are socialists because we are developing a concrete strategy for achieving that vision, for building a majority movement that will make democratic socialism a reality in America. We believe that such a strategy must acknowledge the class structure of American society and that this class structure means that there is a basic conflict of interest between those sectors with enormous economic power and the vast majority.

Where: City Hall Council Chambers in Sacramento, CA
Sacramento city council is considering a draconian ordinance that will make it impossible to exercise our right to speech and assembly in most areas of the city! The ordinance would impose harsh, unnecessary fines on those accused of violating it-- up to $25,000 a day!
We will rally outside city hall at 4:30, and then make our disapproval known during the council meeting. Please join us.
Several dozen local organizations and nonprofits have signed on to say no to this new free speech restriction. Get in touch with us if your group would also like to sign on.
(The proposed ordinance can be read online, it is #19 on the consent calendar) http://sacramento.granicus.com/GeneratedAgendaViewer.php?view_id=21&event_id=3040
