DSA San Diego Calls on San Diego City Council to Reject Amendments to the Surveillance Ordinance

As a member of the Transparent and Responsible Use of Surveillance Technology (TRUST) Coalition, DSA San Diego members have worked to pass a series of reform ordinances through the San Diego City Council.  After 2 years of diligent work involving community input and legal review, the City Council was cowed by the Police Officers Association to insert amendments which severely weaken this ordinance.  These amendments allow blanket-exemptions in oversight for technologies introduced to the city… Read More

Roe is gone – come together and fight

The Supreme Court just overturned Roe v. Wade, and while abortion currently remains legal in California, this cannot stand. The time to hit the streets is now. Even worse, Justices Thomas and Kavanaugh stated in their concurring decisions that federal protections for same-sex relationships and marriage and contraception may also be subject to reversal. Members of DSA San Diego must mobilize against this violent attack on abortion and reproductive rights, queer rights, trans care, and so… Read More

Concentration of ownership in the hands of corporate landlords, inflation, and the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic have heightened the hardship tenants face across the country. In a housing system where profit matters more than our quality of life, we need a tenant movement to effectively combat the landlord class, secure decent housing for all, and build the necessary power to… Read More

You can sign onto this letter: https://forms.gle/rvYjfMUdyjAa5Q33A  We demand that all charges against local activists from San Diego and Los Angeles defending our community from violent far-right extremists be dropped! We denounce the unprecedented conspiracy charges and the unreasonably high bail against transgender activists.  On January 9, 2021, violent far-right extremists went to Pacific Beach to disrupt and terrorize the local community – but local activists counter-demonstrated to show that hate is not welcome in… Read More
