** EL ESPAÑOL SIGUE EL INGLES **

After four nightmarish years of Trump, we need to do more than breathe sighs of relief as the Biden-Harris administration takes office.

During previous Democratic administrations, many hoped that the rhetoric about promoting diversity and ending “stupid wars” would translate into sweeping civil rights progress and redress growing economic inequalities. Instead we got:

** continuing police murders of Black and Brown people

** bailouts of banks and other big businesses while millions lost their homes

** failure to honor long-standing promises to legislate a level playing field for unions to organize

** expansions of U.S. wars

** expansion of already-bloated Pentagon budgets

** arms exports to oppressive governments

** drone bombings

** record deportations

** record attacks on whistle-blowers

** continued attacks on the right to choose abortion, and

** huge expansion of the petroleum industry thru fracking.

We cannot afford another Democratic administration that fails to meet the needs of those who hoped it would bring sweeping change. If there is little progress to diminish the huge inequalities in this country, many will drift into apathy or end up supporting another right-wing demagogue in 2024.

We must pro-actively make demands on the new Biden-Harris administration:

** End State Repression & Institutional Racism
http://ccawr.org/end-state-repression-institutional-racism/

** Promote an Economy That Serves Working Class People
http://ccawr.org/promote-an-economy-that-serves-working…/

** Housing, Food, Education & Healthcare are Human Rights
http://ccawr.org/housing-food-education-healthcare-are…/

** We Have the Right to Control Our Bodies

** International Peace & Human Rights

** Protect the Planet, Protect Us All

Evento del Comité de Chicago contra la Guerra y el Racismo

230 S Dearborn St, Chicago, IL 60603, Estados Unidos

Martes, 19 de enero de 2021 a las 4 PM CST – 5 PM CST

Después de cuatro años de la pesadilla de Trump, necesitamos hacer más que suspirar con alivio cuando la nueva administración demócrata Biden-Harris asuma el cargo.

Durante las administraciones demócratas anteriores, muchos esperaban que la retórica sobre la promoción de la diversidad y el fin de las “guerras estúpidas” se tradujera en un avance radical de los derechos civiles y corrigiera las crecientes desigualdades económicas.

En cambio, lo que obtuvimos fue:

** continuos asesinatos policiales de personas negras y latinas

** rescates económicos de bancos y otras grandes empresas mientras millones perdieron sus hogares

** incumplimiento de las viejas promesas de leyes para lograr un terreno de juego nivelado para que los sindicatos puedan organizar

** expansiones de las guerras de Estados Unidos

** expansión de los presupuestos del Pentágono ya de por sí abultados

** exportación de armas a gobiernos opresores

** bombardeos con ‘drones’ (aviones no tripulados)

** récords del número de deportaciones

**ataques récord a denunciantes de corrupción gubernamental** continuos ataques contra el derecho a elegir el aborto, y

** enorme expansión de la industria petrolera a través del fracking.


No podemos permitirnos otra administración demócrata que no satisfaga las necesidades de quienes esperaban que trajera un cambio radical. Si hay poco progreso para disminuir las enormes desigualdades en este país, muchos caerán en la apatía o terminarán apoyando a otro demagogo de la derecha en las elecciones del 2024.

Debemos hacer demandas proactivamente a la nueva administración de Biden-Harris:

** Fin al Estado de Represión y Racismo Institucional
http://ccawr.org/end-state-repression-institutional-racism/

** Promover una economía que sirva a la gente de la clase trabajadora
http://ccawr.org/promote-an-economy-that-serves-working…/

** Vivienda, alimentos, educación y atención médica son derechos humanos
http://ccawr.org/housing-food-education-healthcare-are…/

** Tenemos el derecho a controlar nuestros cuerpos
http://ccawr.org/we-have-the-right-to-control-our-bodies/

** Paz y derechos humanos mundialmente
http://ccawr.org/international-peace-human-rights/

** Proteger el planeta, Protegernos a todos
