Members of the Chicago chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America met Sunday morning to coordinate efforts to assist the Chicago teachers and school support staff whose concurrent strikes are likely to stretch into a second week.
The group, commonly known as Chicago DSA, has remained on the front lines of the strike that now threatens to cancel a third day of classes for Chicago Public Schools students. During Sundays meeting at Chicago DSAs modest Logan Square headquarters, about a dozen members of the chapter were preparing to curry public support by canvassing a series of brunch spots around Mayor Lori Lightfoots home on the Northwest Side.
After two strong days
on our 11 adopted picket lines - in addition to the rallies that have seen tens of thousands of people on Thursday and Friday - we want to make sure that we are not letting the support dwindle whatsoever and that there are going to be more members out on lines on Monday, said Dan Cutter, co-chair of Chicago DSAs labor branch.

Socialists are teaching kids? When did that happen?
At least 30 years ago.
These aren’t real socialists — they are DEMOCRATIC socialists. You know...the harmless kind.
All one needs to know about this fiasco:
Voters in Chicago are getting exactly what they voted for, Crime, Murder, Druggies, Socialist, Communist School Teachers,....God bless the Obamas, The Lightfoots, the Democrats....”NOT”!!!
I had an admitted Communist prof at the U of Illinois back in the 50's. So...a loooong time ago.
Democratic socialists, and socialists in general are just as disgusting as neo-Nazis. absolutely no difference.
Dude google John Dewey.
More like a century ago.
There is no money.
Poor Socialists; they never learn.
I’ll never forget that striking Chicago teacher from a few years back who proudly proclaimed while on the picket line, “I teaches English.”
They deserve each other.
Chicago Teachers Union is nothing but a communist front organization.
America lost the “Cold War” way before the phrase was coined. The (former) USSR actually won but they lost their country in the long run as America is also headed to that same dustbin of history the way we are going. The Founders knew most people are commonly idiotic and gave America a Republic if we want it but we are flushing that down the toilet.
Soooooo many “educators” are LIB lunatics. Pathetic child abuse.
CPUSA goes way back in Chicago, back to the beginning. They all helped bring Obama about.
It’s for the children;)
Will anyone even notice that the teachers are not in the classroom.
The only question of any importance is whether the poor kids sentenced to the Chicago Public School System will learn less if the teachers go on strike or if those teachers actually show up in the classroom.
