Single payer activists will join hundreds of other activists in Washington DC September 8 to 10 to discuss how to bypass the Democratic Party.
The People’s Convergence is being pulled together by Draft Bernie for a People’s Party, the Progressive Independent Party, and Socialist Alternative.
The groups will discuss two central questions;
What will it take to defeat the right wing and build a powerful left alternative?
Should progressives continue the fight to reform the Democratic Party or should we launch a people’s party independent of corporate money and influence?
In fact, the groups have already decided on question two.
Or as Draft Bernie organizer Nick Brana makes clear – “the Democratic Party is structurally incapable of becoming a people’s party.”
