Occupy UC Davis Supports Resolution Opposing Democrat-Republicans

by repost Friday, Dec. 02, 2011 at 3:52 PM

A child shall lead them and the Occupy UC Davis students have shown the way with a resolution supporting breaking with the Democrat-Republicans. The resolution is here.

From: .Occupy UC Davis protesters adopt resolution calling for break with Democratic Party

By David Brown, 1 December 2011

http://www.wsws.org/articles/2011/dec2011/davi-d01.shtml

The resolution reads in full:

We, the students of UC Davis, condemn the brutal police assault and pepper spraying of fellow students, who were peacefully protesting on November 18.

This attack is part of a nationwide—in fact global—crackdown on demonstrations against social inequality and the domination of politics by the rich. While the American government invokes “democratic rights” to justify wars abroad, it responds to social protests at home with riot police, tear gas and rubber bullets.

While Chancellor Linda Katehi is directly responsible for the police raid, she was enforcing a nationwide campaign orchestrated by the entire political establishment. Throughout the country, Democratic and Republican politicians—including the Brown and Obama administrations—are dismantling public education, cutting social services, and undermining all our basic social and democratic rights. Some of the most brutal attacks on Occupy demonstrations have been carried out by Democratic Party mayors.

The way forward is clear: No support should be given to either of the two parties! The dictates of the banks and corporations can be countered only through the independent social and political struggle of the entire working class.

We call upon students and working people all over the world to support our struggle against budget cuts. Our fight is your fight! Right now, students and workers in Greece, England and Egypt are engaged in a common struggle.

The global protests that began in 2011 must be expanded to a mass movement of students and workers to defend our rights and finally put an end to the domination by the corporations and super-rich over political and economic life.

High unemployment is a sure way to get rid of incumbents and the current incumbent president is no exception. The Rasmussen poll at

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/daily_presidential_tracking_poll

shows a 43% disapproval of Obama, and Republican Gingrich leading Obama 45% to 43% at

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/elections/election_2012/election_2012_presidential_election/2012_presidential_matchups

Only 22% have confidence in the economy. See

The Democrat-Republican Parties are the twin parties of war and fascism, both sponsored by the same capitalist class to achieve the same reactionary goal of maximizing profits for the capitalist class, the greatest profits being in oil and munitions. Those of us who sell our labor for less than ,000 a year, the workingclass, cannot possibly be represented by the millionaire presidential (and most of the US Congress and most governors) candidates of the Democrat-Republican parties. The two parties that can represent the workingclass in California and need to double their registration to stay on the ballot as their existence now depends on registration, not on how you vote in 2012 or 2014, are:

1. Peace & Freedom Party

2. Green Party
