Over the past few decades, working people and the middle class have faced unprecedented attacks from powerful corporations and the 1%--on our democracy on our livelihoods, and on the planet on which we all depend. The 2016 election may be our best opportunity in many decades to begin to check the power of elites to buy and subvert American democracy and the will of ordinary voters. We have a responsibility to think and act boldly to ensure that the next President is a Democrat who represents our values and interests. And that means we have a corollary responsibility to have a clear understanding of where the challengers for the Democratic nomination stand on the issues that matter to our future.
On July 29, Bernie Sanders will be live-streaming a chat to thousands of House Parties being organized across America - and a few House Parties being held abroad!
In Puerto Vallarta, Paul Crist has (independently of Democrats Abroad) organized a Bernie Sanders House Party to be held at the River Cafe Restaurant on Wednesday, July 29, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm local time. Sanders live-stream will begin promptly at 6:30, so prompt arrival is encouraged.
There is no charge for attendance, and any food and beverage consumed is at the attendees' expense (River Cafe is offering an outstanding 3-course prix fixe dinner option for only 295 pesos).
To date, Hillary Clinton and other Democratic hopefuls have not announced similar efforts to the Sanders House Party events, but if or when they do, we hope that a member of our community will step up and also organize an event to help her share her message. We will certainly share that information with Democrats Abroad Mexico members.
River Café is located at Isla Rio Cuale #4 on the River Walk at the Vallarta Street Bridge.
