    DC Socialism Study Group - Korean War & Prospects for Peace

    Since the 1953 armistice that put an end to combat in the Korean War and established the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), the two nations have never been closer to a peace treaty than now. This Friday, Kim Jong-Un and Moon Jae-in will be meeting in a historic development, and have confirmed that there is a possibility of drafting a peace treaty. This week we'll be talking a bit about the history of the Korean War and why this development is so important.

    PSL Socialism Study Group is a space for progressive people interested in socialism to come together and learn about world history and current events with like-minded people. No reading is required ahead of time to participate.

    Pocatello, ID: Iraq to Syria, building the Anti-War Movement

    The stage is being set for the Trump administration and the Pentagon to launch a new military action against Syria, as evidenced by the open threats against Assad’s government after the unsubstantiated accusation of a chemical attack.

    Join the PSL in our forum to learn about U.S. wars against Iraq and the history of U.S. imperialism in Syria.

    The elevation of Bolton, Pompeo and Haspel can only be seen as a turn in the direction of new wars against North Korea, Iran and elsewhere, and intensification of the seven wars that the U.S. is already engaged. Now is the time to intensify the resistance!

    SF Forum: Immigrant Rights are Human Rights!

    PSL Forum - Socialist Analysis & Discussion
    Immigrant Rights are Human Rights: Stop the Raids and Deportations!

    Throughout the country, immigrants who have lived, worked and raised their families in the U.S. are under attack as Trump threatens to roll back Temporary Protective Status (TPS) and the Dream Act (DACA).

    In the sanctuary state of California, Gov. Brown claims to protect the rights of immigrants, while committing 500 National Guard troops to be deployed along the Mexico border at the request of the Trump administration, as ICE continues to terrorize immigrant workers through raids across the state.

    Hear analysis on the current crisis from the La Riva for Governor campaign, which calls for full rights for all immigrants, and join us at the Int'l Workers' Day action to demand an end to the racist anti-immigrant attacks.

    Also — Solidarity with the People of Brazil!
    Widespread protests across Brazil continue as the rightwing Temer-led government attempts to silence progressive forces through the recent sentencing of former president Lula of the Workers Party to the assassination of progressive city councilwoman Marielle Franco in Rio last month.

    Hear the latest developments from the struggle in Brazil and how we in the U.S. can stand in solidarity.

    Las protestas generalizadas en todo Brasil continúan mientras el gobierno derechista dirigido por Temer intenta silenciar las fuerzas progresistas mediante la reciente sentencia del ex-presidente Lula del Partido de los Trabajadores y mediante el asesinato de la concejala progresista Marielle Franco en Río el mes pasado.

    LA Forum: Why is Russia the Scapegoat of U.S. Foreign Policy?

    Doors 7 PM / Program 7:30 PM

    Join the Party for Socialism and Liberation for a public forum and discussion about the growing witch-hunt surrounding Russia. The media continues to brandish baseless allegations against Russia, creating public opinion useful to the U.S. war machine.

    “Russiagate” began as a way to avoid taking responsibility for the Democratic party failure in the 2016 elections. Now it’s a way of denying the genuine outrage of the Movement for Black Lives and extends even further to justify U.S. confrontation with Russia and China. 

    Arm yourself with facts and analysis:

    • The flimsy basis for the anti-Russia accusations

    • Refuting the claim that U.S. dissident voices-- like Black Lives Matter-- are “Russian dupes”

    • Why some in the U.S. ruling class want Trump out

    • The reorientation of U.S. foreign policy towards major power confrontation 

    Also hear from our special guest speaker Johnny Achi of Arab Americans 4 Syria, who will provide in-depth analysis on the recent attacks by the US government and the developing situation on the ground in Syria. Like and follow their page here: https://www.facebook.com/AA4Syria/

    SF Study Group: Why did the U.S. target Syria?

    Socialists and War: Two Opposing Trends

    Following the U.S. invasion of Iraq, why did the United States target the governments in Libya and Syria for destruction? Why did some in the progressive movement support these so-called revolutions that were backed by the Pentagon and NATO? Can the Pentagon ever play a progressive role? The book makes a unique contribution to the debate in Socialists and War. This piece answers important questions from a truly socialist perspective. Join us in a discussion of the book with co-author Mazda Majidi!

    Join us at our office at 2969 Mission St., SF
