<![CDATA[Bay Area Socialist Party Joins Oakland IWWD Action]]>Thu, 09 Mar 2017 01:55:45 GMThttp://socialistparty-usa.net/4/post/2017/03/bay-area-socialist-party-joins-oakland-iwwd-action.html
The Bay Area Local attended the Working Women's Day rally and march in Oakland on Wednesday March 8th. The event was completely inspiring and gives us so much hope for the future! Oakland knows how to get down. We heard countless calls to end patriarchy, oppression, white supremacy, and capitalism. The event was also anti-police, anti-ICE, and pro-immigrant and pro-sex workers, as well as very interesectional. We heard from some awesome speakers, and saw some great signs and banners indicating the anti-capitalist nature of the group. There was also a chant against both capitalist parties, the Democrats and Republicans.. the crowd was pretty diverse and mostly women and young people. Our group included Jenna Tuttle, Ian Morrison, Zach Mingue Sohn, Antonio Salas, and Tina Phillips. Jenna made a home-made banner for us from canvas and paint, which came out awesome! It was held by various members throughout the rally and march. Members spoke with others about building socialism in the Bay Area and handed out pamphlets about the party. Follow-up plans include building towards May Day and possibly joining a socialist contingent with other socialist groups. One of our newest members, Zach, spoke to a reporter and made the news.
