Don’t Miss - MPP Peoples Convention Plans vs. DNC Brokered Convention Plans

February 29, 2020

2/27/20 Monthly National Organizing Call (Movement for a People's Party)

Issues discussed:

  • Peoples Convention planning
  • Confirmation that DNC is planning to steal nomination from Bernie Sanders
  • Chuck Todd verifies that all corporate candidates will pool delegates to overcome Bernie’s lead resulting in a...
  • Brokered DNC Convention
  • NY Times article  about interviews with 93 Super Delegates that all said they are united in stealing the nomination from Bernie
  • Warren’s new attack line against Bernie about the primaries
  • The Unity Reform Commission was a sham
  • Politico Article - DNC discussing bringing the Super Delegates back to 1st Ballot
  • Caucus shenanigans
  • Two billionaires running in Democratic Party to prove US Elections are auctions
  • We need to build a major new party that Americans are asking for

You won't want to miss this call! We discuss plans for creating an alternative convention in Milwaukee, a People’s Convention. As the primary election unfolds, the establishment will become more and more brazen in their attempts to cheat progressives and install another oligarch friendly nominee.

MPP members and allies can join #BernTheDNC in nonviolent civil disobedience and invite allied groups and individuals to attend a People’s Convention. It will take all of us to accomplish this, so once you volunteer at the link below we will ask everyone to please choose which working groups they would like to join. 

Milwaukee Working Groups

1. Action (civil disobedience) 

2. Finance 

3. Media 

4. Organizing (promotion and attendance) 

5. Political (inviting allies)

6. Programming (schedule of events) 

7. Social media 

8. Tech (website and app) 

9. Venues (people's convention logistics and housing) 

The Movement for a People’s Party is going to Milwaukee! Join us at the People’s Convention July 13 – 16th

While the Democrats break their own rules to nominate an establishment candidate at the DNC Convention, we’ll bring people from all walks of life together next door to launch America’s next major party, the People’s Party!

Join progressives and independent thinkers from across the country for events, workshops, breakout groups, speakers, social activities, celebrations, performances, and a momentous convention vote on forming a genuinely progressive party free of corporate money.

We’ve been building this movement since 2017. Now’s the time to scale up. MPP invites you to join us in Milwaukee July 13 – 16 as we build the future that works for the people and the planet.

MPP Joins Coalition Partners Move to Amend and Popular Resistance to Fight Illegal Wars & Corp-Personhood

MPP Joins Coalition Partners Move to Amend and Popular Resistance to Fight Illegal Wars & Corp-Personhood

September 30, 2019

Join our September National Call for all things #peoplesparty and to get active in the movement at https://peoplesparty.org! Today we will vote on whether to endorse #MovetoAmend’s We the People Amendment, a constitutional amendment to abolish corporate personhood and get money out of politics. Move to Amend’s National Director, Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap, will join us to speak about the amendment. We will also vote on whether to endorse the Global Appeal for Peace, an organization demanding that the US respect international law and refrain from starting illegal wars. The Appeal is sponsored by #PopularResistance

WE’RE BUILDING A PARTY THAT WORKS FOR US

Our vision is a coalition party that will deliver what regular people take for granted in so many other countries:📌single payer health care,📌free public college,📌money out of politics,📌an infrastructure jobs program,📌a $15 minimum wage,📌financial regulations, and more. 

We need actual representation in our government. A majority of people in the US don’t feel represented by either the Democratic or Republican parties. We’ve watched these parties turn their backs on us to answer every call of the billionaires and donors. Overwhelming numbers of Americans understand these parties cannot be salvaged. Polls show that almost two out of three Americans are now calling for a major new party.  It’s time to build the party we’re looking for — one that brings us all together.

MPP on Julian Assange, the GOP’s Assault on Abortion Rights, the DNC’s new Finance Chair, and Voting on New Endorsements Including a Green New Deal

MPP on Julian Assange, the GOP’s Assault on Abortion Rights, the DNC’s new Finance Chair, and Voting on New Endorsements Including a Green New Deal

May 27, 2019

On this month’s call we discussed the espionage charges leveled against Julian Assange, the GOP's escalating assault on abortion rights, and the DNC’s appointment of an openly anti-Bernie lobbyist and Clinton bundler as Party Finance Chair.

We had guest speaker Emma Fiala, executive board member of the Women’s March on the Pentagon share plans for Rage Against the War Machine March. She took some questions then we voted to endorse their efforts. Our Political Director Carol Ehrle talked about a Green New Deal and our work with the surging youth climate rebellion. After some questions and discussion we voted to endorse a Green New Deal. Lastly, we voted to endorse the Zero Hour Youth Climate Summit in Miami this July.

Cheers to a people's party! 

MPP discusses Joe Biden’s run for President, Julian Assange arrest, Superdelegates, The DCCC’s new ban, public banking and joining two new alliances

MPP discusses Joe Biden’s run for President, Julian Assange arrest, Superdelegates, The DCCC’s new ban, public banking and joining two new alliances

May 2, 2019

On this month’s call we discussed Joe Biden’s vacuous run for president and how the DNC has saved Americans the trouble of voting by pre-selecting him (how thoughtful of them!). Then shared how the Democrats have given themselves the power to reactivate the super-delegates and the chaos ensuing from the DCCC’s new ban on campaign contractors working with progressive challengers. We discussed Julian Assange’s arrest and how the Democrats are racing Trump for the privilege of criminalizing journalism (it is too great an honor for one plutocrat alone). MPP steering committee member and Public Banking Institute staffer Suzanne O’Keeffe gave us a special presentation on the great strides being made towards public banking.

We voted on whether to join two alliances that we've been invited to. The first is whether to join the Grand Alliance to Save the Postal Service, which the establishment parties are trying to privatize. The second is whether to join youth climate activists in the Last Chance Alliance, dedicated to halting all fossil fuel extraction in California, the world’s fifth largest economy, and replacing it with renewable energy.

Cheers to a People's Party!
