We have removed the statement made here about the war between Israel and Hamas because it is not clear that this was a statement by DSA. After searching and searching, DSA appears to not have made an official statement.
When an official statement is made, we will try to post it.
For information and an individual’s view on this rapidly changing conflict, please see Harold Meyerson’s “Israel and Palestine : No Exit.
The conflict over the New York Chapter’s participation or support is reported below. The matter is unclear.
NEW YORK — A pro-Palestinian rally Sunday in Times Square endorsed by the city chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America ensnared prominent party members amid widespread condemnation of the event.
Gov. Kathy Hochul and other leading Democrats blasted the rally as “abhorrent and morally repugnant” and drew a dividing line with far-left members of the party — including New York Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jamaal Bowman, who denounced the attacks and called for a ceasefire but didn’t take a stand on the rally.
Note: It is not clear that this demonstration was endorsed by the DSA chapter as claimed by Politico ( above) . A spokesperson for the local chapter was quoted as saying that the sharing of information was an act of cooperation with another organization.
