Democratic Socialists of America – Pittsburgh Chapter
Category: Video Recordings
Pittsburgh DSA has taken the initiative to have video recordings of the education segments of the monthly General Meetings and also the events hosted by the chapter. This is to allow for comrades who missed or want to rewatch content as much as possible. (Note: some educations segments or events may be recorded but not for public use due to being either for internal training or security reasons.)
For our August General Meeting we’re honored to have Austin Gonzalez from the DSA National Political Committee to talk about the International Committee’s trips to observe the elections in Peru and representing the organization in the Congreso Bicentenario de los Pueblos in Caracas, Venezuela while taking another week to visit the famous communes of Venezuela.
For our June General Meeting we were so happy to have comrade Daniel Anton an activist with Die Linke Neukölln live from Berlin to talk about the current organizing around Mietenwahnsinn (“the rent madness”) and taking questions from the members of the Pittsburgh DSA!
From our April General Meeting; author & PGH DSA Member Ryan Brown (writer of Pittsburgh and the Great Steel Strike of 1919) discusses the history Labor acts in the US from the 1930s on today with the PRO ACT and how the DSA is involved in the organizing trying to pass this landmark act.
For our March 2021 General Meeting; the Political Education Committee reached out to the Socialist Feminist Committee to give an Ed Segment for Women’s History Month. The committee focused on presenting the history of Abortion Access and the current challenges to abortion access.
Join the PGH DSA Political Education committee for a short presentation and informal discussion about the sources, nature, and political reality of right-wing conspiracy theories today—most manifestly, Qanon.
(Content Warning: Due to the nature of these conspiracy theories, discussions of anti-Semitic rhetoric, accusations of pedophilia, and other potentially upsetting material will undoubtedly be a part of this presentation and discussion.)
