The Socialist Alternative has an event notice on their website about the “Northwest Socialism Conference”. Attendees include former Green Party San Francisco Supervisor and Vice Presidential candidate to Ralph Nader, Matt Gonzalez. Other invitees include Cindy Sheehan, an antiwar activist and independent congressional candidate in 2008.
The American people elected Obama and the Democrats who promised to challenge Corporate America’s control over our country. Yet hundreds of thousands of hard-working Americans continue to be laid off and evicted from their homes while the bankers who created the economic crisis have continued using the $14 trillion in tax-payer bailouts and guarantees to lavish themselves with huge bonuses and salaries. And Republican and Democratic politicians have completely failed to take meaningful action to end global warming, discrimination, or the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan.
The Northwest Socialism Conference will be a rare opportunity to discuss and debate real solutions to these problems. Don’t miss this chance to get involved, meet, and talk with activists who are organizing a grassroots movement to create a better world.
The conference even includes a debate between socialist and tea partiers.
