From the Platform

Freedom, Justice and Crime

We call for the defense and extension of the liberties guaranteed in the Bill of Rights, including freedom of speech, press, assembly and association, and the right to keep and bear arms for individual and collective defense. The ultimate guarantee of those rights is the organized strength of the working class.

Capitalism and poverty breed crime and repression. Working class people are the primary victims both of street crime and of police reaction to it. The bosses use laws against victimless activities, "legal" and illegal expansion of police powers, military and paramilitary occupation of poor and minority communities, and diversion of resources to police and jails, to keep workers intimidated and dependent.

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.
