Socialist Night School: Medicare for All After Bernie @ ONLINE, VIA 'ZOOM'
RSVP: https://www.eastbaydsa.org/events/1296/2020-06-02-socialist-night-school-medicare-for-all-after-bernie/ This pandemic lays bare how broken our market-based healthcare system is, as millions of Americans lose their employer-sponsored insurance and lack access to testing and treatment for COVID-19. Medicare for All is now more popular than it’s ever been, yet Democrats refuse to fight for it. Instead Speaker Pelosi is pushing for subsidizing COBRA — a massive giveaway to private insurers. Especially after Bernie’s presidential run, we have no blueprint for how to build the movement that we need to finally guarantee healthcare as a human right. How … Continued

Capitalism is the Virus, Housing is the Cure: Candlelight Vigil & Noise Demo @ Harvey Milk Center for the Arts, Duboce Park
Jun 5 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Mayor London Breed has the power to move all unhoused San Franciscans into vacant units and hotel rooms, yet she has ignored calls from homeless people, community organizations, and even the Board of Supervisors to do so. Instead, she has chosen to leave thousands of our neighbors on the streets without access to bathrooms, basic hygiene, or shelter. Leaving people outside is inexcusable at any time. Doing so during a global pandemic is absolutely unconscionable. We need safe and permanent housing for all San Franciscans. We can’t wait another day! … Continued
