At the 2019 convention DSA adopted a resolution to support Cuba Solidarity work and to join the National Network on Cuba, which today we are a proud member of. In 2021 we reaffirmed this by adopting in the DSA Political Platform a commitment to work on normalizing relations with Cuba, advocating for lifting sanctions, and joining the Sao Paulo Forum to continue working with mass socialist parties in Latin America.
DSA is uniquely posited to mobilize a national grassroots campaign to counter US sanctions. We are beginning to build a broad network of DSA organizers who can engage in all forms of work.
The war in Ukraine is a disaster for working class people in Ukraine, the region, and a terrible threat to us all, including increasing the danger of nuclear war and exacerbating global economic crises. We oppose the Russian invasion and call for the withdrawal of Russian troops through a settled ceasefire agreement. We recognize that the expansion of NATO and the aggressive approach of Western nations have helped cause the crisis and we demand an end to NATO expansion. We also oppose US and NATO military interventionism and the tens of billions in military aid and weapons shipments which only further exacerbates the war and undermine a negotiated settlement, as well as sanctions that will harm ordinary Russians. We call on the US and other countries to welcome refugees fleeing the war and provide needed humanitarian aid.
Join us as we build a massive, unified global anti-war response to say No to War in Ukraine; Yes to Diplomacy and Peace.
ZHAP is an anti-war campaign based in Okinawa fighting against the construction of the new US military base in Henoko. DSA reaffirms our Political Platform commitment to fighting for closing all foreign US military bases and demanding reparations for the human and environmental destruction caused by US toxic military sites. We stand in solidarity with comrades in Okinawa fighting against the construction of the new US military base in Henoko!
DSA stands in solidarity with Venezuela and voices our broad support for self-determination and socialism in the country, free of continued US interference and sanctions. At the 2019 convention DSA passed a resolution to continue building ties with mass socialist parties in Latin America and at the 2021 convention similarly another resolution to expand on this work and join the Sao Paulo Forum. As outlined in the DSA Political Platform, DSA affirms our commitment to work to normalize relations with Venezuela, defend the sovereign right of the Venezuelan people to determine their internal matters, and oppose any sanctions and other forms of foreign interventions.
Solidarity with the people of Venezuela! Solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution!
The US escalation of tensions with China is well-documented, but the looming passage of most anti-China bill since the Chinese Exclusion Act has received little attention in the US. Join us to work to oppose the US Innovation and Competition Act and US escalations against China that would ramp up a new Cold War and hinder global cooperation needed to address critical issues like climate change.
DSA joins alongside many Korean organizations including Korea Peace Now, the International Strategy Center, Women Cross DMZ, and Nodutdol for Korean Community Development to call for an end to the US travel ban on North Korea, lifting of sanctions, and formally moving to end the Korean War in order for the peninsula to finally begin the process of peace, self-determination, and reconciliation without the US economically and militarily imposing its geopolitical interests in Korea’s affairs anymore.
We reaffirm our commitment in the DSA Political Platform to oppose US foreign military presence and bases, work to formally end the Korean War with a peace treaty, and to support the Korean Peace and Reconciliation process, which is supported by the majority of South Koreans and is the product of the struggle of Korean left and popular movements.
For 7 years the US has enabled a catastrophic war on Yemen through its continued support of the Saudi-led coalition. Since the beginning of the war, over 400,000 civilians have died, the majority of which through indirect causes such as a lack of food. As the situation worsens millions more are at risk in what the UN has called the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
DSA strongly supports the Yemeni people in their struggles to end the war and we reaffirm our commitment to oppose the US support for the devastating war on Yemen.
