In person

SF Federal Building

SF

Abolish NATO, Shut Down US Bases Around The World – The Main Enemy Is At Home! For Working Class Strikes Globally To Stop The Wars!

The US ruling class is driving the world towards a global war. The Democrats and Republicans have joined together to send over $60 billion to Ukraine and are opposing any negotiations with Russia which could bring an end to the conflict. For decades, the US has pushed NATO expansion up to the borders of Russia. It was a major force behind the overthrow of the democratically-elected Ukrainian government in 2014, and aimed, in the civil war that followed, to goad Russia into a proxy war. The disastrous war in Ukraine was their intent, and they have exploited it to train and arm Ukrainian military forces, including the fascist Azov Battalion, as a means to weaken and destabilize Russia. In the wake of Russian military defeats, the American military establishment is crowing for further escalation, in order to break up the Russian Federation.

At the same time that the US ruling class is pushing for expanded wars abroad, it is increasing the war on working people in the US, with massive evictions, rampant homelessness, an escalating drive to privatize public services, and slave-labor conditions at Uber, Amazon, and other corporations.

The rise of fascism is part and parcel of the US war drive. The toxic stew of racism, xenophobia, homophobia, Islamophobia, sexism, anti-Semitism, and immigrant bashing which has led American democracy to the brink has been produced by the polices of the Democrats and Republicans. Billionaires like Musk, Bezos, Ellison, and Buffett are driving working people to the wall, and their union busting tactics are allowed by the Democrats and Republicans alike

There is no anti-war opposition in the American government or the labor bureaucracies: The AFL-CIO “Solidarity Center,” funded by $75 million from the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), has pushed the privatization of the wealth in Ukraine for US capitalists and supports the war drive. 

On December 2, 2022, the Si Cobas union is launching a national strike against NATO and US war in Ukraine and Europe.

In person

Medicine For Nightmares
3036 24th Street
SF

Attendees are asked to please wear a mask while inside the bookstore

PANEL DISCUSSION WITH
FOR ANTI-FASCIST FUTURES
CONTRIBUTORS

Elspeth Iralu, Dian Million, Nicole Nguyen, Yazan Zahzah, Alyosha Goldstein

Explores the significance of fascism for understanding authoritarianism today and centers anti-imperialist movements of Black, Indigenous, and colonized peoples.

We must, as For Antifascist Futures urges, take antifascism as a major imperative of movements for social change. But we must not limit our analysis or historical understanding of the rise of the right-wing authoritarianism in our times by rooting it in mid-twentieth century Europe. Instead we turn to a collection of powerful BIPOC voices who offer a range of anticolonial, Indigenous, and Black Radical traditions to think with.

Saturday, December 10

Saturday, 10am (PT); 1:00pm (ET), SANCTIONS: A Wrecking Ball in a Global Economy

Webinair register: Webinar Registration – Zoom

Join a discussion of the latest developments in key regions of the world with several authors of the new anthology: SANCTIONS: A Wrecking Ball in a Global Economy

Intensifying US sanctions, imposed on a third of humanity, are sending shock waves through the world economy. Now this brutal form of economic warfare on civilian populations is being contested. US dollar dominance is being challenged as the currency of global trade. Sanctions have boomeranged back on the US and EU countries with inflation, supply chain shortages, and a looming recession causing hardship at home. But by far the greatest burden is borne by 40+ sanctioned countries. The US response is doubling down on harsher sanctions. What are the implications?

A Discussion with :

  • Ajamu Baraka – Black Alliance for Peace
  • Erica Jung – Nodutdol Korean Community Development
  • Carlos Martinez – International Manifesto Group
  • Lee Siu Hin – China-US Solidarity Network
  • Judy Bello – Syria Support Movement & UNAC
  • Ann Garrison – Pacifica reporter & Black Agenda Report
  • Rick Sterling – Task Force on the Americas
  • Sara Flounders – International Action Center
