D’Artagnan Collier election campaign meeting
The crisis in Detroit: The socialist response
16 October 2010
D’Artagnan Collier, the Socialist Equality Party candidate for Michigan House of Representatives, 9th District, will address the deepening social crisis in Detroit at a public meeting on October 28. The event will be Collier’s main campaign meeting prior to the November 2 elections.
Collier, 41, a Detroit city worker, is a founding member of the Committee Against Utility Shutoffs (CAUS) and a longtime fighter for socialism. In his campaign for state legislature, Collier has fought to mobilize the working class independently of the Democrats and Republicans, the twin parties of big business, in the fight for their basic social rights—including the right to a job, the right to utilities, and the right to education.
Collier’s campaign has won a powerful response from Detroit workers, who suffer from record levels of unemployment and poverty.
At this meeting, Collier will explain the basis of his campaign and discuss the SEP’s program, “The Breakdown of Capitalism and the Fight for Socialism in the United States.” All Detroit-area residents are encouraged to attend.
