Sep 26 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
Why the Cuban Revolution has Endured: A Marxist Assessment of Cuba’s Historic Break with Capitalist Rule and its Lessons for Today A young Fidel Castro and his July 26 Movement cadre faced critical questions immediately following their defeat of the Fulgenco Batista Army and Batista’s U.S.-backed dictatorship in 1958-59. Initially, Fidel, previously an attorney from a wealthy family, was characterized as a moderate reformer and past member of one of Cuba’s two main bourgeois parties, the Orthodox Party. Pledged to restoring Cuba’s 1941 constitution that dictator Batista abrogated, the Castro … Continued

Border surveillance encompasses numerous technologies: US Customs and Border Protection drones can observe the majority of American homes, flying anywhere within 100 miles of a land border or coast; immigrants awaiting court dates are forced to wear electronic GPS shackles; … Continued

Let Cuba Live: Ending the US Blockade Today @ Online
Sep 30 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Online Event Location:  https://act.dsausa.org/signup/let-cuba-live/  Since its genesis in 1960, the US embargo of Cuba has been a criminal disaster. US sanctions have besieged socialist Cuba for over six decades. While 2018 UN estimates have calculated a direct loss of $130b in trade alone, the toll of the embargo on Cuban life can hardly be quantified. Most recently, US economic interference has stymied Cuba’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in deteriorating conditions on the island. With escalating tensions coming from the Biden administration against the Cuban people, solidarity is more timely … Continued

The right to safe, legal abortion – San Francisco
Oct 2 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Three weeks ago, getting an abortion in Texas became almost virtually impossible as Senate Bill 8 passed – making it illegal to get an abortion after 5 or 6 weeks no matter the circumstance. The US Supreme Court denied an emergency stay on this bill, and instead allowed it to go into effect immediately. With their upcoming ruling on the Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, this lack of action represents a willingness of the court to appease right-wing bigots. With attacks on abortion rights poised to increase as … Continued

The call to action is clear, and urgent. The relentless attacks from Texas to Mississippi are ramping up quickly. Anti-choice extremists have a deep desire to return to a time when there was more clear and effective domination and control over queer and trans folks, women, and people of color; they want to revive those old values and societal norms to the point of re-acceptance.
