Our Platform

The Socialist Equality Party is running candidates in California for the US midterm congressional elections. The SEP has selected David Moore as its candidate for the US Senate and Kevin Mitchell as its candidate for the US House of Representatives from the 51st Congressional District. Moore and Mitchell will run on a socialist, anti-war and anti-capitalist program in the interests of the working class in California and around the world.

Oppose US militarism! Stop the drive to World War III!

Under the fraudulent cover of the unending “war on terror,” now in its 15th year, millions of people—in Iraq, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and other countries—have been killed, injured or turned into refugees by the United States since 2001. The Department of Defense recently dropped the “war on terror” pretext and declared that “Great power competition—not terrorism—is now the primary focus of US national security,” calling for preparations to wage war against nuclear-armed Russia and China.

Defend democratic rights! Oppose Internet censorship!

The most basic democratic rights are being ripped to shreds. While the Trump administration is seeking to establish an authoritarian and personalist regime around the president, the Democrats—including California Senator Dianne Feinstein—have spearheaded the drive to censor the Internet and criminalize domestic opposition.

Defend immigrants! Disband ICE and open the borders!

The SEP fights for the right of workers to live and work in any country they wish. We demand the immediate end to Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids as well as the detention and deportation of immigrants.

Put an end to poverty and social inequality!

The SEP fights to abolish a system in which the super-rich exploit the labor of billions of workers around the world. We call for a vast redistribution of wealth to secure basic social rights, including the right to a decent-paying job, quality education, affordable housing, universal health care, a dignified retirement and access to culture.

Break with the Democrats and Republicans! Join the Socialist Equality Party!

The fight for peace, equality and democracy is inseparable from a fight against the capitalist system, which subordinates the global economy to a criminal financial elite. The oligarchs control the political system and both major parties. To defend their rights, workers need their own party.

The American government and social media companies are censoring the Internet, under the guise of combating “fake news” and “Russian meddling.” The real aim is to suppress and criminalize the growth of domestic opposition to the policies of the ruling class.
