The Left can’t control its fringe elements anymore than the Right can, it appears.
At the Anchorage rally against police brutality and racism on Saturday, MRAK captured a screen shot from one of the flyers being circulated, which upon closer inspection states that “it should be abundantly clear that the pigs are the enemy of the people.”
The flyer, published by the Party for Socialism and Liberation, demands a world without police and a world without prisons. The group demand an end to capitalism and imperialism and political autonomy for the “New Afrikan nation.”
The Party for Socialism and Liberation describes itself as a “communist party in the United States established in 2004 after a split in the Workers World Party. The PSL is running Gloria La Riva and Leonard Peltier in the 2020 election.”
According to Wikipedia, the party’s goal is to lead a revolution paving the way towards socialism, under which a “new government of working people” would be formed.
The PSL proposes many radical changes to be implemented by this government. In the political sphere, all elected representatives should be recallable, securing freedom of speech for the working class (except in the case of xenophobia or bigotry and to prevent re-establishment of the capitalist system) and the elimination of corporate influence from politics.
The party sees socialism as the door to full-on communism as its ultimate goal.
The PSL would among other measures prohibit the exploitation of labor for private profit, implement a working week of 30 hours and eradicate poverty through the introduction of a basic income guarantee.
“The PSL would grant the right of self-determination to what it considers oppressed nations of the United States, including “African Americans, Native, Puerto Rican and other Latino national minorities, the Hawaiian nation, Asian, Pacific Islander, Arab, and other oppressed peoples who have experienced oppression as a whole people under capitalism.” The group has an affinity for communist Cuba and opposes Israel.
