From Kshama Sawant’s election as an open socialist on the Seattle City Council
to numerous socialist and independent left campaigns in Chicago, New York,
Richmond, CA and elsewhere throughout Fall 2014 and Spring 2015, interest in
a working class alternative is growing.
Those struggling to build a left pole in the electoral arena have much to learn from one another. We met in Chicago on May 2 and 3 to begin a conversation about possibilities for a political alliance in opposition to the two-party system of corporate-capitalist rule.
Key conference organizers: sections of the Green Party, the International Socialist Organization, the Peace and Freedom Party, Socialist Alternative and Solidarity.
Conference participants Gabe Gabrielsky (DSA, SP and Solidarity) and Cindy Henderson (Peace and Freedom Party) will report back on that conference. June 25th event sponsors include: DSA-LA, Peace & Freedom Party, Solidarity, Socialist Party LA, and the Jacobin Reading Group-LA.
