The Peace & Freedom Party of Los Angeles was invited by our friends at the Downey Tenants Union to protests a fundraiser for Downey mayor Blanca Pacheco, who is currently running for state assembly and stands vehemently against rent control – even though the working class of Downey and across California are clamoring for some relief from the housing and rent crisis.
Mayor Pacheco was joined by California Speaker of the House Anthony Rendón, who believes the job of the speaker is to “raise money for the Democratic Party caucus.” As a socialist party, PFP believes the Speaker of the House should be the voice of the Californian working class.
Also in attendance were corrupt local politicians, real estate moguls and the oligarchs of southeast LA. Across Southeast LA, corruption runs deep, and the working class is clamoring for a socialist alternative: the Peace and Freedom Party is that alternative. Join us so we can clean out the corruption in southeast Los Angeles and put a speaker of the working class in the house.
