Special meeting - Report-back from Standing Rock with Gina Petry and Patrick Burns

Petry and Burns responded to the urgent call for on-site support to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline, which will jeopardize the country's water supply by running toxic oil conduits under the Missouri River.

These delegates returned from North Dakota on Nov. 21 after a week at the encampment. They will bring news from the frontlines, including a report on the Nov. 20 militarized assault on 400 Standing Rock Sioux and supporters, who were viciously attacked by police using rubber bullets, water cannons and tear gas.

Petry also interviewed women leaders at the site and both delegates met with the Indigenous Youth Council. Burns collaborated with Labor for Standing Rock and put his construction skills to use as the water protectors prepare for a harsh winter.

Discussion Circle – Democracy and Revolution by George Novack

Where did democracy come from, and where is it going? Is today’s U.S. electoral system the best we can expect? This insightful book traces democracy’s development through 2,500 years of class struggle in which democracy ”was everywhere the offspring of revolution.” It concludes with a vision of the vastly broader democracy that will be one of the most profound benefits of the achievement of socialism.

This discussion group will be held at FSP National Office, address and travel information are above.
