Gaza demo close Oakland Port 36Throughout 2024, demonstrations calling for a ceasefire in Palestine have been held all over the United States, Canada, the U.K. and the entire world. The San Francisco Bay Area has been particularly fruitful in hosting such demonstrations, including a remarkable run of actions on the three-day weekend in mid-January.

On January 13, activists managed to shut down the entire Port of Oakland for one working day in a show of solidarity with the people of Palestine – quite a jump in scale from a November action in which a single ship was stopped from leaving port. Peace & Freedom Party member Marsha Feinland was among those attending the action. (Below photos by Howard Petrick)

The following day, the All Out for Gaza rally made for another of the seemingly weekly mass rallies in San Francisco since November. Thousands participated in the demonstration in the city as part of a global day of action. This followed a city council move of January 9, which made San Francisco the largest city in the US to officially call for a ceasefire.

Pictured directly below are PFP members (from L to R) Dave Campbell, Marsha Feinland and Gergory Steverns participating in the rally at the San Francisco Civic Center.

Finaly, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, January 15, the 10th annual Anti Police-Terror Project’s 10th Annual March to Reclaim MLK’s Radical Legacy became dedicated in no small part to a demand for an immediate ceasefire. Indeed, a ceasefire was the very first enumerated in this year’s list of demands by the group.

In California, voter registration is very important to political parties. The very existence of a political party as “ballot-qualified” is determined by the number of votes its statewide candidates receive or by the number of voters registered with the party. As the only feminist socialist political party on the California ballot, it is imperative that the Peace and Freedom Party continues as a qualified party.

Quite simply, the Peace and Freedom Party will not be able to provide Californians with candidates that will represent us unless we register and vote Peace and Freedom.

For all the information you need on registering to vote, visit the California Secretary of State's homepage at or just click here.

Thank you for registering Peace and freedom Party, and thank you for your vote!
