The next edition of Peace & Freedom Party’s co-sponsored Suds, Snacks & Socialism monthly forum series at the Starry Plough Pub in Berkeley (3101 Shattuck Avenue; click here for map) will be held on Saturday, March 2. All are welcome to discuss the topic Fighting the recall of Pamela Price.

One year ago, Pamela Price took office. She was elected Alameda County District Attorney on a reform platform that focused on rehabilitation and addressing police misconduct and corruption within the D.A.’s office. Less than 7 months later the recall campaign, part of a backlash to criminal punishment reforms and fear-mongering over crime by police and their political allies, began.
Join our panelists to discuss what a criminal justice reform agenda looks like and to examine the forces advocating a return to repressive measures that have never kept us safe:
Civil rights attorney Walter Riley, and
Linton Johnson of the Protect the Win campaign.
Serving as moderator is Marsha Feinland of PFP.
The program will start promptly at 2:30pm PT and is expected to wrap up by 4:30pm. To join the forum, click here or write

This forum is co-sponsored by the Oakland Greens, the Alameda County Peace & Freedom Party and Bay Area System Change Not Climate Change. The forum is part of our ongoing Socialist Forum Series on the first Saturday of every month. Our purpose is informed political discussion, and the views expressed are those of the speakers only, not official positions of the Peace & Freedom Party or our fellow co-sponsors.
