D2 DSA Meeting: Impeachment–How should DSA Respond + Report on Protests in Chile
November 3, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Short URL: https://seattledsa.org/?p=12880
District 2 DSA Meetup. Join us for a discussion on:
- The Growing Movement for Impeachment: How Should DSA and the Left Respond?
- Plus a report from Chilean human rights activist Vero Barrera-Kolb on the protests in Chile and around the world
Impeachment is becoming an issue that can’t be ignored. The Republican officials are falling into line and even pushing past police officers at the Capitol to slow down the impeachment proceedings. The Democratic establishment has finally begun fighting for impeachment, but only with kid gloves on. It seems clear they are more afraid of unleashing another protest movement that takes aim at them as well, than they are of keeping Trump in office. The other factor is the organized left: how do we help lead the movement to drive Trump out, while recognizing that Trump’s and the ruling class’s crimes go far beyond extorting Ukraine?
Join us for a discussion on what DSA and the left can do to drive Trump out and build the socialist movement in 2020 — and stay for an important update from Chilean human rights activist and socialist Vero Barrera-Kolb on the protests happening right now in Chile and around the world and how we can build international working class solidarity.
