Wednesday, February 3, 6:30pm, this event will be occurring via Zoom

Working people need to stand together in solidarity against the right-wing attempt to silence Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant and the Black Lives Matter Movement recall campaign! The recall campaign, if successful, would overturn last year’s re-election and push a working-class representative out of office. Most importantly, the recall effort is an attempt to undermine Seattle’s social movements, which have won major victories against big business.

The right wing and big business are furious about the Defund Seattle Police Department campaign, our movement’s historic Amazon Tax victory, our renters rights victories, the $15 minimum wage, and how Kshama has used her socialist City Council office to fight relentlessly for working people and the oppressed.

The recall petition filer himself has explicitly said that this is a reaction to the Black Lives Matter movement, and three of the charges in the petition are directly against BLM. Councilmember Kshama Sawant is the only Seattle City Councilmember who has fought consistently alongside BLM and against police violence, to defund the police by 50%, and who voted against the New Youth Jail and the racist rollback of accountability in 2018’s police contract.

As ordinary people face deep inequality, unaffordable housing and evictions, economic crisis, police violence, and climate crisis, we need her voice in Seattle City Hall now more than ever.
