No Milo Yiannopoulos at UC Berkeley

The election of Donald Trump has emboldened the far right - racists, Islamophobes and misogynists are attempting to come out into the light and gain a foothold across the country. We have to show them that we won't tolerate any rise in far right activity. We will come together to fight oppression and

prevent them from having a platform in our universities. They aim to recruit mainly young, alienated white men to their politics of white supremacy, xenophobia, and misogyny. Join us and unite against oppression and against a corporate political system that relies on this right-wing, divide-and-conquer rhetoric.

Milo Yiannopoulos is a spokesperson for the newly activated far right, an Islamophobic writer for Breitbart, a leader of the Gamergate sexual harassment campaign, and a figurehead for some of the most hateful right-wing elements in Trump's camp. We should allow no space for his message at UC Berkeley.

We also have to do more than stop one event to prevent these far right elements from recruiting and growing their forces. We have to shut them down and drown out their events in every community they pop up, and we have to undermine them politically as well. We need a vibrant Left force in this country that will serve as a progressive outlet for the anger and frustration caused by capitalism in this moment of crisis. Socialist Alternative calls for a new party of the 99%, free of corporate money, with a political program that can offer real solutions to working people and oppressed communities.

The first step in this campaign is to build mass public pressure so that Yiannopoulos cancels his tour, or so the UC cancels it for him. This will mean building this Facebook event, inviting everyone you know, and also hitting the streets to organize and to gather signatures for a petition to the UC administration. Please SHARE this event and INVITE your friends!

If the UC fails to do close Yiannopoulos down, or if he moves to an off-campus venue, we will gather the community for a mass counter-protest and shut down that event.
