Northside Emergency Meeting
August 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0
n the wake of the Charlotteseville tragedy and in response to Trump’s emboldenment of the increasingly organized neo-Nazis in our midst, the Northside Chicago branch of the Democratic Socialists of America invites you to help strategize the implementation of our three pronged plan of action:
1. Defend our communities and institutions from neo-fascist violence.
2. Continue to organize a grassroots multi-racial working class movement fighting for visionary, transformative reforms like Medicare for all.
3. Fight the battle of ideas – fight racism and anti-Semitism with socialism, not with neoliberalism.
Heather Heyer’s mother has implored us to double our efforts in honor of Heather, who gave her life to the cause of freedom and liberation from all forms of oppression. We ask that anyone committed to this project, anyone who refuses to stand silently by as Nazis organize themselves and both the state and the police refuse to lift a finger–join us, get plugged in, and find solace in the solidarity of your sisters and brothers in struggle. Together, we will win.
Join us Monday the 28th at the Lincoln Park Presbyterian Church to learn about DSA’s approach towards fighting right-wing extremism and building a vision of a world free from social and economic terror.
