Young Democratic Socialists (YDS) of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) endorse Occupy Wall Street
The Young Democratic Socialists endorse the Occupy Wall Street movement and its demand for justice. We join the demonstrators in taking a stand against corporate power and neoliberal  politicians. These protests have been condemned in the press as class  warfare, but in the words of a protestor on Wall Street, “they only call  it class warfare when we fight back.”
We must draw on the great traditions of resistance in our history – the  Patriots, the Abolitionists, the Suffragettes, Industrial Unionism, the  Civil Rights Movement, and the feminist and LGBT movements – and engage  our creative imagination in forming a movement for the 2010s. We must  bear witness, but we must moreover build power that can challenge the  commanding heights of capitalism, and succeed in changing laws in the  people’s favor. We must make demands on the state, and we must win. In  the spirit of solidarity, we encourage the movement to demand:
 A public jobs program
 The nationalization of failed banks
 Medicare for all
 The forgiveness of student debt
 An end to foreclosures
 Substantial investment in clean energy
We can fund these vital public policies if we reverse the Bush and  Reagan tax cuts for the top two per cent, restore effective corporate  taxation, and end wasteful military spending. And we can only reverse  the decline in working people’s standard of living if we restore the  democratic right of working people to unionize.
