REPORT: Broward Democrats Honor Union Calling For “Militant Social Movement” In Broward

nothing like a little homegrown anarchy, right Stacy?

MEDIA TRACKERS FLORIDA is reporting Broward Democrats such as Broward County Commissioner Stacy Ritter, Broward State Attorney Mike Satz, and host of candidates gave an award to the ultra-confrontational UNITE HERE at the BYD Luncheon.

“Walsh also told the gathering of Democratic leaders that Unite Here could remedy that failure by pushing the ‘Florida Freedom Charter.’ She said the charter, based upon the Apartheid-era South Africa Freedom Charter, would address rights of workers, immigrants, and voters, as well as provide affordable health care. Walsh suggested that unions and groups like the Broward Young Democrats and Awake the state join forces to ‘build a sustainable and sometimes necessarily militant social movement.’ She did not specify the kinds of militant acts that the groups should sponsor.”
