Speeches from October 27 CPRSJ Demonstration against War Threats over Korea and Iran: A Student Perspective

by Christian, UC Santa Barbara Campus Marxist-Humanists

Brothers and sisters, comrades and friends!
Today we gather to say no to the capitalist system, which turns people into machines and machines into people.
We gather to say no to a Trump regime that would rather go to war than solve the problems of life here at home.
We say no to a regime that pretends to care about the danger of nuclear weapons, all the while pointing thousands of nuclear missiles at millions of innocent people all over the world.
We say no to a disastrous war that would harm both the people of North Korea, victims of their own regime and the American people, victims of Trump.
We say no to war with Iran, while the American ruling class cozies up to the oligarchs in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, and their illegal war in Yemen.
We say no to the building of walls and the deportation of working people seeking a better life, while the rich get away with the most heinous crimes possible.
We say no to the making of millions of refugees at the hands of the bloodthirsty Bashar Assad regime and their criminal Russian backers.
We say no to an Iranian mullah regime that starves, harasses, and murders the Kurds and the representatives of Iranian workers.
We say no to the Russian plutocrats that brazenly rob the Russian people dry and distract their own population with war and strife.

And we will not rest until our very own immoral, wicked, oligarchical President and his crony friends are torn down and real democracy, true democracy, workers’ democracy takes place not just in this country but all over the world!
And we are going to fight, and we are going to struggle, and we are going to unite, and we are going to win. Because even though the oligarchs and the warmakers have their billions, we have the millions behind us!
And so brothers and sisters, thank you very much for your time.
