This is an official statement by the Chicago Socialist Party on the Life and Death of Cuban Revolutionary leader Fidel Castro.
The following in an official statement by the CSP on the 2016 election of Donald Trump as president and our future as an alternative of resistance to the mainstream politics that got us here.
The week of September 18th through 24th tested the small, but dedicated numbers of the CSP and Young People’s Socialist League with emergency volunteer work, two co-organized events, (including a rally), and a meeting. Despite the last minute addition of organizing a donation drive following 7 cases of arson in Pilsen that displaced 25 people, we were able to both raise supplies and housing for some of those affected, putting our principles of direct action to work.
Four families have just lost their homes today in a large fire in Pilsen that damaged two buildings, collapsing one of them at 2036 w 21st place. The daughter of the landlord is raising funds for these families and every penny will go directly to them. If you could, we would encourage you to help out these families in need who have just lost their homes. We have provided the link below that will take you to the Gofundme page. We thank you for your solidarity! If you have any questions please contact Anna Lopez on her facebook page.
