Speakers:

  • Hamid Khan, Stop LAPD Spying Coalition, on domestic surveillance
  • Kevin B. Anderson, UCSB Professor and CPRSJ, on Trump’s wars and war threats
  • Maureen Cruise and Kirsten Magnuson, Health Care for All-Los Angeles, beyond Obamacare
  • Chris Gardner, CPRSJ, on international arms trade

The thoroughly reactionary processes put into motion by the Trump regime range from wars, threats of wars, and an increase in the international arms trade, to the wars on working people and people of color here in the U.S. These include increased police surveillance and the attempts to abolish Obamacare. Trump’s open support of racial and gender hierarchies and of authoritarianism represent, along with his economic nationalism, new politics with fascist overtones. But the way for these policies was prepared by a series of neoliberal administrations, from Clinton, to Bush, to Obama. And while the U.S. is by far the world’s largest and most aggressive imperialist power, it is not alone in threatening or making war, or in repressing its people and lowering its living standards.  We need to rise up, not by fighting for a return to the neoliberal Obama years, but by deepening the struggle against both Trump and the system that produced him.
