When: Sunday, April 28, 2019, 11:00 am to 1:30 pm

Antifascist researcher Matthew N. Lyons will speak about his recent book Insurgent Supremacists: The U.S. Far Right’s Challenge to State and Empire. This work examines a broad array for far right currents, from neonazis to Christian theocrats, and from the Patriot movement to the alt-right, looking at their development, politics, interactions, and impact on the wider political landscape. Matthew argues that these “insurgent supremacists” bolster established systems of oppression but also challenge the existing political order.

Tax Day Rally: Repeal the Trump Tax, Pass the People's Budget

When: Saturday, April 14, 2018, 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm
Where: Cambridge Common • near Harvard Red Line stop • Cambridge

Time to stand up for our values and priorities!

President Trump’s tax bill is ensuring billions of dollars in profits to large corporations– and peanuts to working people.Tax Day Rally Meanwhile, the President and Congress have agreed on unparalleled increases in Pentagon spending that will lead to more wars, more suffering, and take even more money from programs that benefit all of us. Cuts in essential programs from climate protection to Medicaid, housing, Social Security, and Medicare are on the drawing board. We must turn around Washington’s budget insanity.

  • The Trump tax cuts for the 1% (approved by Congress) will drain the treasury of over $1.5 trillion of needed revenue over the next 10 years. In the near future, these deficits will drive deep cuts to health care, education, food stamps, affordable housing and just about every other domestic program for years to come.
