Join the ISO at the NYC March for Our Lives
March 24, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm UTC-4
Join the NYC-International Socialist Organization at the NYC – March For Our Lives The new movement against gun violence has shone a light on the most reactionary forces in our society – the NRA, the gun manufacturers and the politicians who defend them at all costs. The Parkland students are connecting their struggle against violence with that of black and brown youth in cities like NYC and Chicago. On March 14th, more than 100,000 students walked out of schools across the country. These struggles are inspiring an entire generation that is learning that our politicians care more about their next handout from the gun industry than they do about our lives.
We can demand that the NRA and gun manufacturers be held accountable, while rejecting solutions that call for more guns (like arming teachers) or more criminalization of our youth and militarization of our schools (like metal detectors and cops in schools). We encourage you to come out to this protest, and join our socialist contingent to raise these demands and to help put forward an alternative to this system that is built on violence at its core.
We will be meeting at 9:30am a block away from the entrance route so that we can find each other, talk, distribute signs and join the protest together. If you miss the meet-up, then you can check back at this event page for updates on our location. You can also look for our rainbow flags with the fist in the middle.
