Several socialist groups are planning to protest a pair of fundraisers to be held Friday in Seattle for former vice president Joe Biden.
The Democratic Socialists of America, Transit Riders Union, and climate group Extinction Rebellion, along with several other groups, plan to protest Biden for taking the “middle ground” on a range of issues, including health care, fossil fuels, and national security.
Seattle philanthropist Janet Ketcham will host the first fundraiser, and Amazon general counsel David Zapolsky will host the second. Both events aim to raise $25,000, according to the Seattle Times. The Biden campaign has not listed any public events accompanying this visit to Seattle.
Protest organizers hit the “business-backed” Biden for caving to the interests of his wealthy donors on the event’s information page.
