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.

Statement on Funding and War PDF Print E-mail

Statement issued on July 27, 2010, by Jerry Frink, Peace and Freedom Party candidate for State Assembly from the Fifth District.

The planet Earth and its inhabitants are suffering. Needless wars waged by America have emptied our treasury. We are now the largest debtor nation in the world. We must stop funding the war. Greedy individuals and corporations who are profiting from a succession of unnecessary wars are bankrupting our moral integrity at home and in the eyes of the rest of the world. The torturing of people is unjust at every level. The deposits of nuclear materials will damage Iraq, Afghanistan and the entire Middle East for millions of years. Children in the United States are suffering from hunger and malnutrition. The educational system is suffering with valuable teachers being dumped like garbage. People are losing their homes. Unemployment is soaring. Please stop these terrible disgusting wars and concentrate on helping Americans at home. Thank you!
