Unite and Mobilize!
Trump seeks to divide us, to rob us to make the rich richer. We refuse to fight over the crumbs that the billionaires leave us, race against race, men against women, citizen against immigrant. Instead we will unite to demand what we ALL need. We need to take the cake, not the crumbs. We need to take it away from the rich, from the corporations, from capitalism--take it to build the world we want. We—workers, students, immigrants—do the work. If we unite, we have the power to change the world!
DISMANTLE THE RACIST, SEXIST CAPITALIST SYSTEM
- FREE COLLEGE, HEALTHCARE, TRANSPORTATION, HOUSING, AND CLEAN ENERGY FOR ALL /
JOBS FOR ALL
A democratically-controlled federal public works and public service program to provide free education (through college), free healthcare, free housing, free transportation and free clean energy FOR ALL. The program will have direct government employment with good wages and reduced hours. Fund the program by taxing the wealthy and corporations, slashing weapons spending and ending all US wars and occupations. Through this program, provide environmentally-sustainable jobs and training FOR ALL who want them, including all immigrants and the formerly incarcerated.
- EQUAL RIGHTS AND CITIZENSHIP FOR ALL WHO LIVE HERE
Equal rights FOR ALL who live here, including the right to vote. End all deportations and detentions without charge. End mass incarceration. Unconditional defense of the rights of women to control their bodies, and of the rights of all, regardless of race, religion, birthplace or any other distinction. Unlimited right to unionize, to organize and to strike.
- PUBLIC BANKS FOR ALL
Nationalization of all finance (banking, insurance, etc.) under democratic control.
To win these demands, we need a movement independent of the Democrats and Republicans. Winning them means taking the first giant steps from capitalism to socialism, sweeping away the racism, sexism, nationalism and other oppressions that have been used to divide us. Winning them means moving from the Power of the Few to the Power of ALL.

Don�t let Wanderson DaSilva be the Next Victim of Injustice!
US Immigration laws are unconstitutional! Nowhere in the Constitution is Congress given the right to condemn people to exile just for the �crime� of being born elsewhere. No law that Congress has passed makes being here without proper documents into a crime. And if it were a crime, defendants would have the right to be tried by a jury of their peers.

Independence Park, Newark
Today, one in six Americans is unemployed or underemployed, and one in four is among African-Americans and Latinos. Public workers are under attack and education, health and other vital public services are being slashed. Today, there is only one way to create jobs�the government must hire workers directly at good pay to do the work that needs to be done. The public sector needs to be vastly expanded, not cut!
