On Saturday March 13, the California State Central Committee of the Peace and Freedom Party voted to oppose the recall against Governor Gavin Newsom. State Chair Kevin Akin issued this statement.

The Peace and Freedom Party opposes the recall of Governor Newsom, not because we support Newsom personally or politically, but because the recall is based on a litany of falsehoods and represents an attempt by the far right to seize power in California. The proponents of the recall accuse Newsom of being more pro-immigrant than he is, of being more pro-worker than he is, of being more of an environmentalist than he is, and use those exaggerations to demand his removal.

The Peace and Freedom Party is genuinely pro-immigrant, pro-worker, pro-environmentalist, and anti-racist. We ran a candidate against Newsom in the 2018 election and will continue to run candidates for governor and other offices in the future. However, we cannot support this attempt from the far right to use a hoped-for low-turnout election to remove the governor for taking even baby steps in our direction. Instead, we will continue to push for California’s elected officials, from top to bottom, to respond to the interests and just demands of working people, the exploited and the oppressed.

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 SOS.Ca.gov or just click here.

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