On Thursday 29 September 2016, Peace and Freedom Party California State Chair Kevin Akin, with State Central Committee member Dr. Margie Akin, visited the encampments of "Protectors" along the Cannonball River in North Dakota to express support for stopping the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) project that endangers both the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation and its people, and the Missouri River environment. At the two main camps, a trunkload of groceries and checks for the purchase of more food were handed over in the name of the Peace and Freedom Party.


It’s High Time for Mass Mobilization to Free Mumia!

By Jack Heyman and Eric Clanton

Posted on September 22, 2016 by the Webmaster

This article originally appeared on Counterpunch on September 9. Mumia's lawyers and supporters are meeting in New York on September 22 to plan a mass protest on December 9. The authors are involved in building labor movement support for the mobilization.

Could Mumia Abu-Jamal, one of the twentieth century’s most high profile political prisoners, a powerful and renowned author and a former Black Panther, have hope of being released after 34 years in prison, 30 of those years on death row? Could Mumia, unlike the anarchists, Sacco and Vanzetti, or the Communists Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were executed by the state, finally see the light of day after decades in prison like former Black Panthers Geronimo Pratt, the Angola Three and Eddie Conway?

A recent U.S. Supreme Court decision, Williams v. Pennsylvania, could provide a legal precedent to open the door for Mumia’s release. But that will not end the police vendetta against him as demonstrated by the bitter experience of unending persecution by courts, cops and prison authorities. For every legal principle there is a “Mumia exception.” There can be no reliance on the courts for justice, in large part because Mumia is falsely accused of killing a cop. As in the case of Angela Davis, it will require mass mobilizations to free Mumia, mobilizations from trade unions with large black memberships and community organizations like Black Lives Matter.

Greeting Sisters and Brothers:

I have been asked to write a SOLIDARITY statement to everyone about the Camp of the Sacred Stones on Standing Rock. Thank you for this great honor. I must admit it is very difficult for me to even begin this statement as my eyes get so blurred from tears and my heart swells with pride, as chills run up and down my neck and back. I’m so proud of all of you young people and others there.

I am grateful to have survived to see the rebirth of the united and undefeated Sioux Nation at Standing Rock in the resistance to the poisonous pipeline that threatens the life source of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. It is an honor to have been alive to see this happen with you young people. You are nothing but awesome in my eyes.


To Cuba with a Purpose

Taking a vacation and going to interesting places is always something we should try to squeeze into our busy lives. However, it is more significant and satisfying if the trip has a purpose in addition to relaxation and enjoyment. This year I was privileged to make such a trip. An invitation had been made to the Sacramento Central Labor Council from Raymundo Navarro Fernandez, the General Secretary of the Worker’s Central Union of Cuba, to bring a labor delegation from California to Cuba in order to participate in International Workers Day activities and attend a Solidarity Conference of labor leaders from around the world. With U.S. capitalists waging its war against the Cuban people, I wanted to see the damage caused by the embargo and the United States in its continuing efforts to try to change it back to the way it was under Batista.

Preamble to Our By-laws

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.

Voter Registration

In California, voter registration is very important to political parties. The very existence of a political party as "ballot-qualified" is determined by the number of votes its statewide candidates receive or by the number of voters registered with the party. As the only feminist socialist political party on the California ballot, it is imperative that the Peace and Freedom Party continues as a qualified party. Quite simply, the Peace and Freedom Party will not be able to provide Californians with candidates that will represent us unless we register and vote Peace and Freedom.

For more information about registering to vote in California, you can visit the Secretary of State's website.
