Stand up for Human Rights:
Picket Against Bigotry, White Supremacy and Fascism



Join the picket on the west side of 4th Avenue across from Westlake Park, between Pine and Pike in Seattle. Stand in opposition to Joey Gibson’s Patriot Prayer rally which begins at 3:00pm downtown.

Joey Gibson of Patriot Prayer, who is trying to cloak himself in respectability by running as a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, is in fact an organizer of countless gatherings that bring together white supremacists, misogynists, homophobes and outright fascists. Groups regularly in attendance at his rallies include Identity Evropa, Proud Boys, Cascade Legion and Atomwaffen Division.

The right-wingers behind the May 20th so-called "open carry march" in downtown Seattle are the same thugs that have been appearing with increasing frequency in Seattle, Vancouver, Portland, and California. When they come, they bring violence, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia, etc. Increasingly they have been targeting the left (socialists, communist, anarchists) and reproductive rights.

Several organizations are coming together to organize a picket in opposition.

STATEMENT OF UNITY:

The bigotry, racism, and violence that far-right organizers are bringing to Seattle on May 20th cannot be allowed to go unanswered. Regardless of our diverse political affiliations and views, we understand that solidarity and unity in action is our greatest strength. Solidarity enables us to overcome the barriers towards building a powerful, democratic working-class movement.

We will be shoulder-to-shoulder with all in our community who are targeted by the far-right in a unified, orderly, and strong counter-protest.

Join the Freedom Socialist Party, Party for Socialism and Liberation, Seattle Gay News, Radical Women, Greater Seattle Veterans For Peace Chapter 92, Dyke Community Activists, ANSWER Coalition and others to stand against bigotry, white supremacy, and fascism. Bring your signs and banners and join the picket line!


Mondays, through June 11
Weekly feminist reading circle

The Origin of the Family, Private Property and the State


In this essential work of Marxist theory, Frederick Engels shows how society evolved from early cooperative matriarchies to the class-stratified, male-dominated system of today.

Discussions will examine why women's second-class status persists – with problems such as sexual harassment, discrimination, and unequal pay – and how it can be overcome. Armed with this knowledge, the group will examine strategies for women’s liberation. Readers will gain the optimistic view that capitalist brutality is only one brief stage along humanity’s path forward. Books will be available for sale at the sessions. See the Reading Circle Syllabus.

Mondays, 7:00-8:30 pm
Light snacks at 6:45 pm for donation. Everyone welcome.

1903 NE 82nd St., Seattle
North of the University District. Near the #73 bus.
