Defund the Police: A year of broken promises – Where are we? Where do we go from here? Next District 3 Meeting
July 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Short URL: https://seattledsa.org/?p=21438
Democratic Party politicians made and broke promises on defunding, NYC Democrat mayor-elect Eric Adams ran against defunding with the increase in violent crime being a key aspect of the elections, Biden is encouraging the hiring of more police, the GOP is blaming BLM and the defund demand for increase in crime – Where are we, where do we go from here? How should BLM and DSA respond to the increase in violent crime and working people’s concerns about that? Should the BLM movement introduce new demands?
We’ll also discuss, what is Compassion Seattle – you may have ran into their canvassers – what is our approach to it as socialists, how should we respond to the canvassers, and what are we doing about Compassion Seattle? We’ll also get updates on the Nikkita for 9 campaign and the Kshama Sawant Solidarity Campaign.
