The “Protecting the Right to Organize” (PRO) Act  reverses decades of corporate assaults on our labor rights, like so-called “right to work” laws, clearing the way to an expanded labor movement with power to transform the economy and protect our planet. We will only win this sweeping pro-worker legislation by making bold demands and putting the pressure on policymakers to stand up to corporate interests. We need all hands on deck […]

December 12: Demand Scott Peters Fight for Our Lives

On Saturday, December 12, DSA San Diego will join more than 20 DSA chapters in a Fight for Our Lives coordinated action to 1) highlight establishment Democrats’ failure to support the working class and 2) advance our real solutions that have broad popular support. We’re fighting for a COVID-19 and economic recovery response that centers the working class and can serve as a launchpad for the decade of the Green New Deal.

Establishment Democrats, like our very own Scott Peters, have consistently failed to support broadly popular policies that benefit the working class, and now they’re blaming the left for the center’s losses. This action is designed to help shift the national narrative and put the failure on Peters, […]

Our statement on the election

The 2020 election is nearly over. We don’t yet know what the outcome will be in terms of which candidates will win or lose. Nor do we know if Donald Trump will accept a likely defeat or if there will be political violence if he loses. We do know that the election is supposed to mark a conclusion. An unalterable decision has been made which the American people must accept as an objective fact. 

Indeed, it’s the main purpose of our political institutions to present the people with things they can’t change. The institutions decide and the people ratify. This point has been made more bluntly in 2020 than in most years. Reactionaries have been given control of the Supreme […]

All hands on deck for a Prop. 15 call for comments!

Statement in Solidarity with the Protests in India

The San Diego chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America condemns the discriminatory and fascist turn of the Indian government, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. We stand in solidarity with the Muslim community in India, and the working and oppressed people struggling against this fascist regime. The Hindu nationalist BJP government plans to implement a National Registry of Citizens (NRC) in the country and has prepared for that with the passing of the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019 (CAA). These policies are a step towards the stated goal of the BJP to convert India into a “Hindu Rashtra” (Hindu Nation) and to further discriminate against and marginalize the Muslim and other religious minorities in the region. As DSA San Diego […]
