The Trump Agenda aims to bring the United States back to an era of capitalism where there are no restrictions whatsoever for corporations and the rich. The people and oppressed sectors of society are left with no protection or guaranteed rights.
Millions of people now realize that the only option is to unite, organize, and resist. The real question is how. We can't let the Democratic Party mislead us into the channel of electoral politics, or sell us war-mongering rhetoric against Russia. The crisis of the whole system has shown the need for revolutionary change.
Come join the PSL for a forum to discuss how to fight back Trump’s Agenda by building a people's movement in the street. In the upcoming period struggle is the only way forward.
System Change, Not Climate Change
Only socialism can solve the climate crisis
The Trump regime wants to cut funding to programs and institutions that deal with environmental protection or climate change. Why? They say that environmental regulations hurt profits and job growth. They say climate change is not real. But these are lies.
Join us for presentations and discussion on how the climate crisis can never be solved under capitalism and how a socialist system can provide a sustainable path forward for humanity and the planet.
****** if leaving from Harlem, MEET AT 1637 PARK AVE AT 3PM TO GO TO UNION SQUARE *****
** Meet at Union Square West and 15th St at 4pm **
Join us to strike to defend all immigrants, refugees, women and all workers! Stand against Trump and join workers around the world as we protest to demand full rights for all immigrants and women, an end to police brutality, and a living wage for all workers.
We are barely a month into Trump’s presidency and the working class is already reaching its hands towards one of its most potent weapons: the general strike. On Feb. 17 was the Day Without An Immigrant, and by some estimates, tens of thousands of immigrants participated nationwide, without an
official organization. We just saw the Women’s Strike, a tremendous affirmation of this historic day of struggle.
May 1 is the day to unite all the struggles and strikes, to show our collective power in a way that has not been seen in years. That will send a message to both the Republican and Democratic parties, and also to all the communities under attack — immigrants, Muslims, women, LGBTQ people, the whole working class — that we have power, we will not be intimidated, and we will stand united against racism, sexism and scapegoating.
Let’s show that power on May 1st! Join us!

Donald Trump has launched an unbridled war on the people on behalf of billionaires and bigots. His immediate executive orders have targeted Muslims, immigrants, women, Trans youth, and Black people severely. His appointments and early policies also reveal a total disdain for any of the hard fought gains won by people's movements from the last century, including environmental protections, Civil Rights, unions, public education, and social services. His belligerence has extended across the world with war threats on multiple countries, a grossly expanded military budget, and resumption of a nuclear arms race.
But the attacks on oppressed people at home are not limited to those carried out by racist ICE and cops. Since Trump's inauguration more than 90 bomb threats have been made on Jewish centers, dozens of mosques have been burned, over 400 reported hate crimes have taken place, including murders carried out by white supremacists. When confronted, the government's reply to this surge in racist violence has been little more than a shoulder shrug.
The Democrats have postured as though they are resisting this assault on people's rights but their record already tells a different story of continued bootlicking of Wall Street and the military. Nothing is more telling of this fact than their decision to maintain the status quo leadership by electing Tom Perez as DNC and refusing to ban corporate lobbying. The only "resistance" the Democrats have mounted is one based on the desire of the Pentagon and CIA to launch an all out war on Russia despite the fact it is the people of the U.S. and the people of Russia who will suffer while they and their children sit comfortably on Capitol Hill raking in money.
A glimmer of hope has risen up though with innumerable protests taking place all over the country from the mass actions in defense of Native rights to marches for healthcare and political strikes by immigrants and women. It was the people who defeated the first Muslim ban when they boldly took over airports. Only this militant, independent action can stand up to Trump, the duopoly, and Wall Street.
And while Wall Street and the pentagon have their representatives in the Democrats and Republicans, we too, the people, need our own leaders. Only a true people's party that fights for the people's rights can build and lead a resistance movement capable of defeating Trump and his worse policies. Only a true people's party can finally break the dictatorship that the billionaires and bankers hold over society and build a new world.
Join the Party for Socialism and Liberation for our Los Angeles Socialism Conference titled, "Building a People's Party". We will have a series of workshops and panels to discuss burning questions facing the people and movement in the era of Trump. We will engage in practical discussions about building a people's party and the fight for socialism.

A Day of Classes with Party for Socialism and Liberation
The Trump regime has launched an unbridled war on the people on behalf of billionaires and bigots. Their agenda of unrestrained capitalism represents a grave danger to all working people and the planet. All the gains won by the people's movements over the last century are being targeted, including environmental protections, civil rights, union rights, public education and social services. Trump’s belligerence has extended across the globe with war threats against multiple countries, a grossly expanded military budget, and resumption of a nuclear arms race.
The Democrats have postured as though they are resisting this assault on people's rights, but the only "resistance” the Democrats have mounted is one based on the desire to launch an all-out war on Russia. The many protests taking place across the country are a glimmer of hope. Only militant, independent action can bring the change we need. Join the PSL for a day of classes discussing socialism, the need for a revolution and the struggle against the Trump regime.
Trump has kicked off his presidency by attacking workers, immigrants, health care, abortion, and heavily increasing war abroad. He has filled his cabinet with the rich, who are only concerned with profit. He promises to eliminate LGBTQ people from the 2020 census.
New Mexico is ridden with high rates of child poverty and homelessness. Nearly half of homeless children are LGBTQ. No one is protecting these youth and there is no sanctuary for them. The vital support system for LGBTQ people, already minimal, will be continue to be aggressively attacked by the republicans and alt-right, who are clinging violently to their homophobic, transphobic, patriarchal, status quo. Now it is more important than ever to stand up and fight against these bigoted, oppressive forces--and we cannot look to the democrats to defend LGBTQ people. Only the workers protesting in the streets have brought tangible progress in the struggle for equality
Join the Party for Socialism and Liberation to fight back against Trump, racism, LGBTQ bigotry and demand a socialist future! An attack on one worker is an attack on all!
