  • 4,000 mental health care workers across the state are going on strike against the unfair working conditions at Kaiser Permanente - working conditions that stops mental health workers from doing their job and have led to intolerably long wait times for patients seeking care. What's at stake at Kaiser is more than just the wages and pension of health care workers, but whether or not a hospital can cut down on the quality of healthcare in order to save a couple bucks.

    Join DSA-LA as we walk the line with Mental Healthcare Workers during the lunch hour and join in their opening strike rally. Let's show Kaiser that Los Angeles is watching, and we have the backs of our fellow workers!

    From our comrades @ Union del Barrio

    We have once again witnessed the brutality of the US Border Patrol who has shot tear gas into Mexico; injuring many Central American men, women and children. Ya basta!!

    Los Angeles calls on the people of Southern California to join this action on Monday, Dec. 10th which is International Human Rights Day to 1) denounce the US government (Republicans and Democrats) for creating this humanitarian crisis in Central America through its foreign policy and 2) for violating the human rights of the thousands of people who are participating in the caravan who are escaping the effects of US imperialism on their countries. We will also denounce the neocolonial Mexican government who has been complicit in these attacks against the members of the caravan.

    Union del Barrio stands in complete solidarity with our Central American brothers and sisters who are fleeing the poverty and violence that has been caused directly by US imperialism. We continue to say that the only solution to this humanitarian crisis is that the US stops its foreign policy of imperialistic intervention in our countries.

    We will gather at the Placita Olvera and from there we will have a short march to the US Federal Building and then to the Immigration Detention Center. 

    =============

    Una vez más hemos sido testigos de la brutalidad de la Patrulla Fronteriza de los Estados Unidos que disparó gases lacrimógenos en territorio Méxicano; hiriendo a muchos hombres, mujeres y niños centroamericanos. Ya basta !!

    Unión del Barrio- Los Ángeles pide a la gente del sur de California que se una a esta acción el lunes 10 de diciembre, que es el Día Internacional de los Derechos Humanos para 1) denunciar al gobierno de los Estados Unidos (republicanos y demócratas) por crear esta crisis humanitaria en Centroamérica a través de su política exterior y 2) por violar los derechos humanos de las miles de personas que participan en la caravana que escapan a los efectos del imperialismo estadounidense en sus países. También denunciaremos al gobierno neocolonial mexicano que ha sido cómplice en estos ataques contra la caravana.

    Union del Barrio se mantiene en completa solidaridad con nuestros hermanos y hermanas centroamericanos que huyen de la pobreza y la violencia que ha sido causada directamente por el imperialismo estadounidense. Seguimos diciendo que la única solución a esta crisis humanitaria es que los Estados Unidos pare su política exterior de intervención imperialista en nuestros países.

    Nos reuniremos en la Placita Olvera y desde allí tendremos una breve marcha hacia el Edificio Federal de los EE. UU. Y luego hacia el Centro de Detención de Inmigración.

  • Protest the Bailout of PG&E

    • Thursday, December 13, 2018 at 5:30 PM

    While Californians start to rebuild after some of the deadliest wildfires in the state's history, Chris Holden is already moving forward to help bail out PG&E. We can't afford to prop up private companies whose main concern are their stakeholders and not the citizens of California. We need community-owned energy that doesn't cut corners when it comes to safety and can respond to the threat of climate change. Join SoCal350, Food and Water Watch, and more to protest this betrayal of California's citizens and demand legislation that addresses climate change.
