Statement on Oaxaca Teachers
Posted on July 17, 2016 by the State Executive Committee
The Peace and Freedom Party State Executive Committee adopted the following resolution on July 2, 2016 meeting.
The Peace and Freedom Party condemns the brutal repression on June 19, 2016 against striking teachers in Oaxaca, Mexico. Federal, state and local police fired on unarmed, nonviolent demonstrators, killing at several teachers and students and wounding many more.
The following excerpts from a June 21 report by the Alliance for Global Justice illustrate the gravity of the situation and the complicity of the United States in promoting and enabling the repression by the Mexican government:
... the dead include 10 in Nochixtlan, one in Hacienda Blanca and one in Juchitán. Many persons have been wounded and at least 23 persons disappeared. Witnesses report that wounded protesters and civillians were being turned away from the hospital at Nochixtlan, only police officers being admitted.

Remembering Israel Feuer (1930-2016)
By Casey Peters
Posted on May 29, 2016 by the Communications Committee
When I first joined the Peace and Freedom Party in 1971, Israel Feuer was already a fixture. He rubbed some people the wrong way because he was constantly referring to the party's registrants and saying that the central committee was making decisions arbitrarily. He also often abstained on votes about issues that many people thought were important, and so irked them. But I rather liked Izzy (as he was known then). He was not doctrinaire and so gave a great deal of thought to what he was doing rather than to follow the “line” of a particular faction.
If anything, Israel was of the “Green” persuasion, because environmental concerns and the effect of public policies on the planet was of utmost concern in his consciousness. He was Southern California's founder of Ecology Action in 1968, presaging the now ubiquitous Earth Day.
Kabiruddin Karim Ali, 1965-2016
By Kevin Akin
Posted on May 29, 2016 by the Communications Committee
The Peace and Freedom Party State Central Committee has received word of the death of Kabiruddin Karim Ali in March 2016. He was a true advocate of peace. Aged only 50, he leaves his wife Claudia and two children behind. He was born in Pakistan, at Hyderabad in Sind State, in December 1965. A member of a distinguished family in the Ismaili Muslim community, he received a name heavy with tradition, signifying a hereditary position among the Ismailis. In the United States, he usually just went by "Ali."
In the recent violence in Pakistan, the Ismaili community has not been among the perpetrators of violence, but among the victims. Many Ismailis have been prominent advocates of peace. This tradition, and Ali's observations of the world, combined to make him a convinced opponent of violence and war. He co-founded the small UMMA4PEACE group, and served as its co-chair. In 2012 he ran as a candidate for U.S. Senate, giving the Peace and Freedom Party as his party preference. Shortly afterward, he joined the State Central Committee of the Peace and Freedom Party, and he became the party's San Bernardino County Chair.
Michael Moore’s Election Year Documercial
Where to Invade Next (North End Productions, 2015), written and directed by Michael Moore.
Reviewed by Roger D. Harris
Posted on February 23 by the Communications Committee
The title Where to Invade Next pimps off of the idea of critiquing US imperialism’s war without end. But documentarian Michael Moore is not going there in his first film in six years.
With Old Glory in tow, Moore’s “one-man army…invades” Western Europe, plus stops in Slovenia and Tunisia, to “steal” good eye-opening ideas to take home:
The Sanders Campaign: A Symposium
Posted on September 26, 2015 by the Communications Committee
The Presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders has drawn record crowds and electrified many left/progressives, but we need to ask some hard questions. Is it enough to "feel the Bern?" Or do we need to build a movement that will last beyond 2016 and transform America and the world?
In this symposium, writers from different political perspectives join writers from the Peace and Freedom Party to discuss these and other questions raised by the Sanders campaign. All contributions are signed articles that reflect the opinions of their authors and not necessarily the positions of the Peace and Freedom Party.
The articles posted so far are (or click here for all of the articles together on one page):

Here are some introductory handouts you can download and print for distribution. For a more extensive archive of our literature, click here.
The Peace and Freedom Party is an open, multi-tendency, movement-oriented socialist party. We are united in our common commitment to socialism, democracy, feminism and unionism and our common opposition to capitalism, imperialism, racism, sexism and elitism.
These by-laws do not define socialism, nor do they identify the strategies and tactics of how to achieve socialism. We agree that socialism is necessary and that it will open up a democratic decision-making process for appropriate use of resources and distribution of labor.
