Facebook EventAll around the world from Detroit, Ferguson, to Ukraine the capitalist class is on the assault against poor people everywhere. Whether they’re shutting down schools, cutting food assistance programs, shooting unarmed people in our streets, or dropping bombs on innocent people abroad they’ve made it clear that there’s only one thing they want: everything! Capitalism has proven itself to be nothing but a parasitic system based purely on greed with no regard to the needs of the people, which threatens not only our own lives but all of the life on the planet.

They’ve destroyed our neighborhoods with unemployment and foreclosures. They’re shutting off our water. They’re plundering the city in a bankruptcy they threw us in. They’ve put the squeeze on us, it’s time we put the squeeze on them!

Put an end to racist police terror! Justice for Michael Brown and Eric Garner! A job is a right! A home is a right! Food is a right! Education is a right! End military interventions at home and abroad which put poor people against poor for the sake of profit for a few!

Facebook-EventJoin activists from Workers World Party, the Moratorium NOW! Coalition, MECAWI (Michigan Emergency Committee Against War & Injustice), Stop Theft of Our Pensions Committee, and Detroit FIST – Fight Imperialism, Stand Together, for the annual year’s end pot-luck dinner and celebration/commemoration of another fierce year of struggles.

We’ve been thick in the battles to save our beloved City from the grips of dictatorship and bankruptcy on behalf of the banks. We’ve opposed massive pension cuts and water shutoffs. We’ve stood up for Gaza, Syria, the anti-fascists in Ukraine, and all those under attack from U.S. imperialism. We’re standing in firm solidarity with Rasmea Odeh, a Palestinian activist from Chicago, and Rev. Edward Pinkney of Benton Harbor, both recently convicted on frame-up charges. We’ve marched with the hundreds of thousands across the country denouncing the racist police killings of Michael Ferguson, Eric Garner, and so many others. And many, many other struggles.

So please come and relax and enjoy the friendship and camaraderie of fellow activists as we break bread together and celebrate another year of anti-capitalist struggle.

Please bring a dish or beverage to share.

Call Lula 313-587-7845 for dish suggestions or to see if anyone else may be preparing the same dish as you are. In any case, please let Lula know what you are bringing so that we will know what food groups my be missing.

For other questions, please call 313-680-5508

Ferguson has unleashed a torrent of anger over racist police murders of African American youth across the country. The outrage is fueled by the lack of decent jobs, housing and education while the wealth of the 1% goes up and up.

Protests are breaking out everywhere. Ferguson signals the beginning of a stronger, unified movement to fight against racism and fight for economic justice. Nowhere is that movement more needed than Michigan where entire Black communities have been disenfranchised through the appointment of emergency managers by racist Governor Snyder to serve the banks. Any type of community control over the cops is also being eliminated.

Come to the meeting this Monday. Report to other activists on protests and demonstrations in your area. Hear a round-up of actions across the U.S. and world-wide. Let’s discuss how we can coordinate and build the movement here in Michigan where it is so desperately needed.

Initiated by: Moratorium NOW! Coalition; Michigan Emergency Committee Against War & Injustice; Fight Imperialism/Stand Together-FIST
