Peace & Freedom Party’s co-sponsored Suds, Snacks & Socialism monthly forum series returns to the Starry Plough Pub in Berkeley (3101 Shattuck Avenue; click here for map) on Saturday, February 4. All are welcome to discuss Haiti Past, Present and Future.
And if you can’t come to Berkeley, the Suds, Snacks & Socialism forum will be streamed online; just click here to register for the online version.
Black History Month is a product of the struggle for African and African-American liberation. The Haitian Revolution of 1791-1804 marked the beginning of liberation movements by and for African and all enslaved peoples in the Western Hemisphere. In this forum, we will look back at this significant event and its continuation as Haiti bears the brunt of capitalist domination. Additionally, an update on the case of U.S. political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal will be provided.
Guest speakers include:
- Pierre Labossiere – co-founder of the Haiti Action Committee (HAC) and the Haiti Emergency Relief Fund (HERF);
- Robert Roth – co-founder of the Haiti Action Committee; and
- Gerald Smith – co-founder of the Oscar Grant Committee (OGC) against police brutality and an activist in the struggle to free Mumia Abu Jamal.
Serving as moderator is Marsha Feinland of PFP.
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.
