Peace & Freedom Party’s co-sponsored Suds, Snacks & Socialism monthly forum series continues in online form via Zoom meeting this Saturday, February 6, to discuss the topic of Racism and Policing in the USA.
Police stand by while white supremacist mobs run amok. Black Lives Matter and other protests by the left are attacked with impunity. Police use deadly force against ordinary citizens, disproportionately people of color. All of this is current, but none of it is new, as will be explained by our guest speakers:
- Signe Waller Foxworth, social justice activist and organizer of a 1979 anti-Klan rally that turned into the Greensboro Massacre;
- Gerald Smith of the Oscar Grant Committee against Police Brutality and State Repression; and
- Melissa Nold, a civil rights attorney in Vallejo.
Vicente Cruz Oakland Greens fundraising & event coordinator, youth sports educator, and nephew of the lead prosecutor of the police bombing of MOVE, will be your moderator.
This forum is co-sponsored by the Oakland Greens, the Alameda County Peace and Freedom Party and Bay Area System Change Not Climate Change. The forum is part of our ongoing Socialist Forum Series on the first Saturday of every month. Our purpose is informed political discussion, and the views expressed are those of the speakers only, not official positions of the Peace and Freedom Party or our fellow co-sponsors.
