November -- December, 2015


  • Feel the Bern: A Great Chicago Fire by Tom Broderick

    DSA works independently from the official Bernie campaign and takes no direction from them. We are a creative group. This is what we're doing.

  • Chicago Afire? by Bob Roman

    In 2015, we have a fanatically right-wing plutocrat Governor plus the huffing and puffing of a mostly cynical Democratic legislative leadership and the dry tinder of a state in fiscal paralysis. With distress rising from the downtrodden into the business class, all it would take is a pissed off cow.

  • Mark Weinberg by Bob Roman

    Those of you who knew Mark have probably heard he has passed away. For those who did not, Mark Weinberg had been a DSA member and a member of the Chicago DSA Executive Committee.

President Bernie Sanders?

Bernie Sanders

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has announced that he is officially running as a candidate for President in 2016 to further a desperately needed political revolution in the USA.

Senator Sanders is a lifelong champion of the public programs and democratic rights that empower working class people. His candidacy could help expand both the progressive movement and the democratic socialist voice within that movement.

Paid for by Chicago Democratic Socialists of America and not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee.
