Are You Feelin’ the Bern?

Bernie Sanders

By David Johanssen

At the beginning of Bernie Sanders’ political career, he lost four statewide elections and was even evicted from his home in Burlington, VT. But after years of persevering and sticking to his “democratic socialist” values, he is now the longest serving Independent in the history of the United States Congress. Sanders wants to break up the biggest banks, double the minimum wage, put the country on Medicare, and create real income equality. His popularity has been rising in recent months; his message is resonating. According to a recent NBC poll, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are in a dead heat in both Iowa and New Hampshire. If Sanders can keep up the momentum, this ‘60s activist may very well find himself in the White House!

Join us Saturday, January 30, at 5pm for a video and discussion: Bernie Sanders: Feelin’ the Bern. We will present a recent interview with Joie Chen of Al Jazeera, in which Sanders talks frankly about his thoughts on income inequality, health care, and the political gridlock on Capitol Hill. Afterward, we will have a balanced discussion of the man, his policies, and his chances to win in November. 50 pesos.

Wednesday, February 3, at 5pm: Koch Brothers Exposed. The Koch brothers are the poster boys for the top one percent, with some charging that their money and power fuel the growing inequality in America. Says the LA Times, “Koch Brothers Exposed effectively sweeps aside a curtain of secrecy and reveals the elitist, undemocratic, and brutish actions of these ‘I’m-entitled-to-it-all billionaires’ who are working hard to destroy the lives of average people.” 50 pesos.
