Minneapolis MN – More than 50 people packed Mayday book store, Nov. 11, for an event hosted by Freedom Road Socialist Organization on the outcome of the midterm elections. Speakers at the event included leaders of the movements for immigrant rights, labor, and against police terror.

Steff Yorek, the Political Secretary of FRSO told the crowd, “These elections were a referendum on Donald Trump and his policies. Voters provided an important setback to him and reduced the number of friends he has in the House and among state governors.”

Brad Sigal, also of FRSO said, “Working people’s lives are not getting better under this system. Environmental catastrophe looms. We need socialism – a system where political and economic power is in the hands of the working class to serve the needs of the vast majority. While the elections won’t get us there, they are an arena of struggle we have to continue to take seriously as we continue the struggle for a new society.”
