I have also been active in many different anti war groups in Las Vegas and nationally in Veterans for Peace, I have supported immigration reform demonstrations and organized many anti-war demonstrations here. In July 2011 I became active in Occupy Las Vegas helping to organize demonstrations and participating in an act of civil disobedience on November 17, 2011 resulting in my arresting along with 21 other Occupy demonstrators.
I was a strong supporter of Dennis Kucinich for president in 2004 and 2008 and decided in 2010 I could no longer stomach the war mongering and selling out of the working class by the democrats and registered to vote as a socialist.
Since Occupy Las Vegas has splintered into total ineffectiveness, when I retire this month I plan on working with Nevada Desert Experience in their anti nuke and anti war efforts.
I urge the building of a new workers political party to address the economic, political and social wellfare needs of the working class, poor and elderly. The two party system has failed the people and it is time for the people to build their own political party to challenge the ruling corporate robber barons.
