Saturday morning, 9 April 2016: A CSWP-organized picket confronted the conference of Oregon “Right to Life.” Members of Ironworkers, IWW, Painters, Stagehands, UFCW and other unions, along with students and women’s health professionals, slammed the conference that featured the vile anti-Semite Harmony Daws, and the discredited fraudster David Daleiden.

A CSWP spokesman emphasized that Democrats as well as Republicans were enemies of the working class and of women’s rights, and called to unchain the power of organized labor by breaking with the parties of our class enemies and building a class-struggle workers party.

Pickets Confront Anti-Abortion Rally

On Sunday, January 17, CSWP initiated a spirited picket line that shouted down an anti-abortion “youth rally” at a swank Portland Pearl District caterer. Union Carpenters, Ironworkers, Painters, Stagehands, Teachers, Wobblies, Portland Solidarity Network supporters and others turned out. CSWP placards and chants demanded “Free Abortion On Demand” and “Labor: Defend Abortion Clinics.” Union militants intend for this action to be the beginning of organizing more solid and active labor defense of abortion rights. Speakers soapboxing at the picket emphasized the need to mobilize labor’s power in defense of the right to free abortion on demand, independent of and against all capitalist parties, Democrats and Republicans alike.
