In Kalifornien, und nicht nur da, wächst der Widerstand gegen die bürgerfeindliche und asoziale Politik der Bush-Regierung. Hier ein englischsprachiger Aufruf aus Los Angeles.
Unite to Defeat the Bush Program!Saturday, May 21. 12 noon
Pershing Square - Los Angeles
532 S Olive Street, downtown L.A. Metro Red Line subway stop
The time to unite in common struggle is now! The US continues to spend billions on war and occupation while pursuing aggressive cuts in badly needed social programs here at home. At the heart of the Bush Administration’s calculations is their plan to complete a massive transfer of wealth from the bottom of society to the top. Bush’s drive to privatize Social Security, even if only partially successful, will lead to a roll back of the entire social net.
War and occupation are built into the Bush Program. This year alone the Bush Administration and the Pentagon will spend over $600 Billion to further the aims of US corporate dominance. They plan to maintain the brutal occupations of Iraq, Palestine, Haiti & Afghanistan. They are also preparing to take action against any country that pursues a course independent of US Empire. The Bush Administration is threatening Venezuela, Iran, North Korea, Cuba, the people of the Philippines, Colombia and many other countries. On May 21 we will demand: “Stop the US war machine,” “US out” and “Full self-determination for all people.”
The march of the Pentagon and the huge transfer of wealth will continue to have deep and disastrous effects on working people. People from the poorest communities, especially in African-American and Latino communities, which are already under attack by racist institutions and police forces, will be the hardest hit. Let’s fight back! A united people’s movement that is grounded in all struggles for justice can defeat the Bush Program.
Now the Bush Administration and Congress – Governor Schwarzenegger here in California too – have greatly escalated their racist attacks on immigrants. This is a clear strategy of trying to divide working people who are natural allies in the struggle against the current march of the corporate elite and right-wing forces in this country. Unions, women’s and LGBT people’s rights are also under attack.
The people to blame for war, racism, poverty, lack of healthcare and education and more are in the White House and on Wall Street. On May 21, we will stand united against the attack on immigrants and demand: Legalization Now! Drivers Licenses Now! Full Rights for All Immigrants! Stop the Fascist Attacks on Immigrants!
