From the Platform


We support social ownership and democratic management of industry and natural resources. Under capitalism, the proceeds of labor go to the profits of the wealthy few. With socialism, production is planned to meet human needs.

To us, socialism is workers' democracy, including the principle that all officials are elected, recallable at any time, and none receives more than a worker's wage. Socialism can only be brought about when we, the working class, unite and act as a body in our own interests. Our goals cannot be achieved by electoral means alone. We participate in mass organization and direct action in neighborhoods, workplaces, unions and the armed forces everywhere.

Bob Evans of Alameda County is running for Attorney General under the slogan of "Justice for California." He believes that we need an Attorney General who will protect workers' rights, send corporate criminals to jail, and prosecute police crime. He would bring to the Attorney General's office the same determination to defend our civil liberties that he has shown over the last 37 years as an active member of the Peace and Freedom Party. One clear way he differs from the Democratic and Republican nominees is that he has the courage to oppose the death penalty, despite polls purporting to show public support for it.

Bob Evans is the Attorney General nominee of the Peace and Freedom Party. He served in elective office for a four-year term as a member of Berkeley's elected Rent Stabilization Board, and helped tenants' rights advocates wrest control of the board from a well-financed group of agents for landlords.

As an attorney in California for 39 years, he has practiced general civil law and real estate law, and specializes in criminal defense and defending tenants' rights. In his "time off," he has been a committed activist in the Peace and Freedom Party at the local and state level for decades, and has served as a state officer of the party, most recently as Recording Secretary from 2000 to 2008. For relaxation, in addition to the traditional attorney's game of poker, he plays bridge.
