Where: The Socialist Party of California Office, 2617 Hauser Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90016
Why: It’s an insanely busy time and there is a lot to cover. The elections, recruitment and fundraising, direct action, a little learning…you name it! We’ll also be starting a book-lending program at this meeting.
After addressing the nascent Socialist Party Ventura County Local, Stewart hit the streets to talk directly with the people of Ventura about his campaign and the Socialist Party USA. True socialist style!
Please join the Socialist Party USA in supporting Presidential candidate Stewart Alexander as he engages in the Peace and Freedom Party Presidential Candidate forum with PSL’s Peta Lindsay, the Justice Party’s Rocky Anderson, and the FSP’s Stephan Durham. Your support is needed and greatly appreciated. This is an event you won’t want to miss!!!

Location: Peace Center West, 3916 S. Sepulveda Boulevard, Culver City, CA
The Socialist Party of California strongly condemns the behavior of the Santa Monica College campus police during Tuesday night’s student protest against proposed tuition hikes, and we stand arm in arm in solidarity with the students who suffered physical abuse as they exercised their right to peaceful assembly.
While this statement serves as a condemnation of the highest order against the actions of the Santa Monica College campus police, it is also a plea to the general public. We as citizens often sympathize with victims such as the students of Santa Monica College, and we might briefly discuss among friends, family and co-workers the abuse of power conducted by authorities with lethal and/or physically damaging weapons at their disposal. This is a big deal, folks. Water cooler talk is not enough.
We all understand the pressure and stress that law enforcement officials deal with on a daily basis. The resort to violence, however, is simply unacceptable. Any one of the students sprayed in the face with pepper spray could have been your son, daughter, husband, wife, niece or nephew. Oscar Grant could have been your son, daughter, husband, wife, niece or nephew. Scott Olsen could have been your son, daughter, husband, wife, niece or nephew. It’s at the point of personal effect that we generally tend to step up the plate and take action. We are you asking you to consider the students of Santa Monica College as if they were loved ones. The next time something like this happens, it could be a loved one who is hurt.
