Join the Peace and Freedom Party’s Alameda County chapter for the monthly Suds, Snacks and Socialism forum at the Starry Plough Pub in Berkeley (3101 Shattuck Avenue; click here for map) on Saturday, June 1. All are welcome to discuss the topic of U.S. Imperialism and the Struggle for Venezuela’s Future.
Roger Harris of Task Force on the Americas and Mehmet Bayram, journalist with Sendika.org, will discuss the history of and current situation in Venezuela, a key battleground in the U.S. ruling class’s ongoing war to overthrow independent and left-wing governments worldwide. They will be joined by Gerry Condon, the national president of Veterans for Peace, who was beaten by police while bringing food to the defenders of the Venezuelan embassy in Washington, D.C. All speakers have recently visited Venezuela.
Doors open at 2pm. The program will start promptly at 2:30pm and will wrap up by 4:30pm, but folks can stay and talk as long for as you like. All ages welcome!
The June forum on U.S. Imperialism and the Struggle for Venezuela’s Future is co-sponsored by the Oakland Greens, the Alameda County Peace and Freedom Party and Bay Area System Change Not Climate Change and the Task Force on the Americas. The forum is part of our ongoing Socialist Forum Series on the first Saturday of every month. Our purpose is informed political discussion, and the views expressed are those of the speakers only, not official positions of the Peace and Freedom Party or our fellow co-sponsors.
