February 11, 2018 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Niebyl Proctor Library
6501 Telegraph Ave
Oakland, CA 94609

Dr. Larry Shoup will speak and lead a discussion on:

“California’s Plutocratic Politics: Time for a Dialogue on Green Party Strategy and Tactics”
What time is it in terms of the earth’s ecologies? What time is it politically, in terms of activism for the people and the earth and against the threats posed by reactionary plutocratic Republicans and mainstream plutocratic Democrats? What are the implications for elections as the main focus of Green Party activism? What are the alternatives? The case for varied local Green Party campaigns to promote municipal grass roots democracy and community based economics. The goal of this Green Sunday is both educational and developmental in the sense of beginning a dialogue
on what should be our strategy and tactics for the immediate future and longer term.


Larry Shoup was the Green Party candidate for California Secretary of State in 2002. He is the author of five books, including Wall Street’s Think Tank: the Council on Foreign Relations and the Empire of Neoliberal Geopolitics (Monthly Review Press 2015).
