Urgent Call For Action Against A U.S. War On Iran

Our chapter voted to endorse national DSA’s statement on Iran:

Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) emphatically opposes a U.S. war with Iran. In light of the U.S.’s act of war against Iran, putting the two nations close to the brink of war, DSA calls on all members and chapters to mobilize against yet another U.S. war in the Middle East.

On January 2, 2020, the U.S. military assassinated, on Iraqi soil, Iranian General Qassim Suleimani. Such a move is an act of war, and escalates an already tense military situation in Iraq and Iran. In addition to recklessly endangering millions of lives throughout the Middle East, yesterday’s action violates the War Powers Act, the U.S. Constitution, and international law.

Public Banking in San Diego – 10/22 at UNITE HERE

The United States of America recently celebrated breaking from colonial rule, but today, its neocolonial arms extend across the globe. Those who resist its ruling class hegemony become targets to be undermined, sanctioned, or bombed.

Their target du jour, Iran, is no exception. The nation liberated itself from a western puppet government and has been resisting the US and its allies […]

2019 Major Campaigns

At our March annual chapter convention, the chapter voted unanimously to support our first two major campaigns brought forward by the Immigration Working Group and the Ecosocialism Working Group. These campaigns offer several fantastic opportunities for our chapter’s members to help build our chapter’s capacity, expand local and international solidarity relationships, and grow as organizers.

Growing a Revolution – Community Garden/Education

The community garden plot hatched by the Ecosocialist WG last fall will provide a new base for solidarity, discovery, prefigurative politics (acting out the change we want to see), and community-wide political education. To get plugged in, please fill out the Ecosocialist WG survey.

Cross-Border Connections between San Diego/Tijuana

The Immigration WG has been making several trips a month […]

International Day of Action – events January 11 and January 12

Join DSA San Diego and the San Diego Migrant and Refugee Solidarity Coalition as we call for justice at events on January 11 and January 12. On November 25, 2018, our previous international day of action, the Trump administration earned worldwide infamy by viciously attacking those seeking asylum with tear gas and rubber bullets – an assault repeated in the dawn of this new year – the earliest hours of January 1, 2019. Day after day, the administration’s obstructionism continues, with the initiation of asylum cases slowing to a crawl and implementation of a grotesquely inhumane “Remain in Mexico” policy pledged to be imminent.

Our rally convenes at noon at the Customs and Border Patrol office in San Ysidro (311 […]
