BLM Uprising: How can the movement win & how should DSA support it? Next District 3 Meeting
Short URL: https://seattledsa.org/?p=15941
6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
Join District 3 members to discuss our experiences, what we think about the movement thus far and where we think it could go, what we think DSA could be doing or should be doing, what’s the role of socialists, how we think the movement can win the demand to defund the police and whether DSA should support the demand to abolish the police.

2 weeks into the uprising and the movement is still going strong. This past weekend hundreds of thousands took to the streets, this weekend promises more of the same. The demand to defund the police has gained unprecedented momentum and, according to recent polls, 70% of Americans say there needs to be serious police reforms and by a margin of 2-1 support the protests. But how can we win this demand? What role can DSA play? And more broadly, what is the role of socialists? The ruling class is currently on its heels and are forced to accept reforms and they will try to divide the movement and stamp it out. One way they may try to divide the movement is over the demand being raised by some in the movement of abolishing the police. Should DSA support this demand?
