Public meeting in Portland, Oregon - Social Inequality and the Destruction of American Democracy
2011 saw the most significant social protests in the United States in decades, giving voice to mass opposition to social inequality.
The US government responded to these protests with brutal police crackdowns and sweeping attacks on democratic rights. Most recently, the Obama Administration approved provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act that allow the military to detain anyone indefinitely without charge. This law effectively abolishes the most basic constitutional rights.
Inequality and the decay of democracy are two sides of the same process. Democratic freedoms are not compatible with a society controlled by a financial plutocracy. Join us for a discussion of the historical roots of the attack on democratic rights and the political strategy for a fight back.
