    SF Forum - Workers, Women and Refugees vs. Supreme Court

    Over the past month, the Supreme Court has waged major attacks on the rights of working people. The racist Muslim ban was ruled constitutional by a vote of 5-4 despite mass opposition throughout the country. Meanwhile, reproductive rights were further eroded when the Supreme Court voted in favor of faith-based pregnancy crisis clinics and their right to “freedom of speech,” allowing these clinics to withhold medical information based on religious beliefs. On June 27, the Supreme Court dealt a huge blow to unions in the Janus v. AFSCME decision by eliminating the mandate of public sector unions to collect dues weakening their ability to affectively represent their membership.

    These examples show once again the true pro-corporate nature of the U.S. government and the need for a mass workers’ movement to demand our rights regardless of who sits on the Supreme Court. Join us for socialist analysis on these decisions and how we can organize a fight back movement.

    Foro Comunitario
    Los Trabajadores, Mujeres y Refugiados contra el Tribunal Supremo

    Desde el mes pasado, el Tribunal Supremo ha estado realizando ataques importantes contra los derechos de los trabajadores. Fue declarada constitucional la prohibición racista de los musulmanes en un voto de 5-4 a pesar de la oposición masiva en todo el país. Además, los derechos reproductivos de la mujer se han visto erosionados aún más tras el voto del Tribunal Supremo a favor de las clínicas de crisis de embarazo basadas en la religión y de su derecho a la “libertad de expresión,” lo cual les permite a estas clínicas negarles la información médica necesaria a sus clientes sobre la base de creencias religiosas. El 27 de junio, el Tribunal Supremo asestó un fuerte golpe contra los sindicatos en la decisión de Janus v. AFSCME, la cual elimina la sindicalización obligatoria para sector público y debilita su capacidad para representar a sus miembros de manera efectiva.

    Estos ejemplos demuestran una vez más la verdadera naturaleza corporativa del gobierno de los EE. UU. y la necesidad de desarrollar un movimiento masivo de trabajadores para exigir nuestros derechos independientemente de quién esté sentado en el Tribunal Supremo. Acompáñenos para un análisis socialista sobre estas decisiones y sobre cómo podemos organizar la lucha.

    Southwest Socialism Conference - We Need a New System

    When: Saturday, August 4, 12noon to 5:00pm
    (registration from 11:00am to 12noon)


    Where: Warehouse 508, 508 1st Street NW, Albuquerque NM 87102

    Hosted by the Party for Socialism and Liberation - ABQ

    For too long the corporations, banks and Pentagon have ruled society. The result? Half of all people are living at or below poverty levels. Schools are underfunded. Social services are gutted. Wages are at an all-time low. Millions have fallen victim to addiction, and the government has no answer other than more and more jails.

    With the billionaires and their politicians running the show, our children and families now face a global ecological crisis and the constant danger of war. Racism and bigotry have not been defeated but are on the rise.
     
    Come join a discussion about the alternative to the capitalist system—socialism. Socialism would mean getting rid of the rule of the super-rich who only care about profits for the few, and using the wealth of society, created by working people, to guarantee everyone’s right to a job, housing, healthcare, education and a sustainable and secure environment.
     
    The super-rich have two parties. The people — workers, students, youth and the unemployed — we need our own party and movement!
