Inside the former train dock of the Studebaker plant, the ceilings dripped rain while people waited, their breath visible in the cold air, for Pete Buttigieg.
Sunday’s announcement of his campaign for president drew thousands, with more than 4,000 inside and another 1,500 in an overflow area outside, where Buttigieg and his husband, Chasten, briefly addressed the crowd before the main speech indoors.
Before the doors opened, the line of attendees stretched from the west side of the former auto assembly plant to the intersection of Lafayette Boulevard and South Street. They didn’t care about the rain and cold. They threw on ponchos. They cheered. They wore buttons and stickers and waved homemade signs and placards.
Not everyone in downtown South Bend on Sunday was thrilled with Buttigieg’s campaign announcement.
And closer to the rally, Paul Mishler and a handful of others stood on a corner with a sign that said “Open your hearts to Palestine and Golan.”
Though it was not an explicit anti-Buttigieg protest, Mishler said the group of peace activists wanted to push the mayor-turned-presidential-candidate to toughen his stance on Israeli-Palestinian policy, with a stronger focus on helping Palestinians.
“He’s a kind person and has been a good mayor,” Mishler said. “I don’t agree with him on everything, but we’re out here because we want to kind of push him on foreign policy.”

Northern Indiana DSA Closed Group
Northern Indiana Democratic Socialists of America June 12 2019.
Dear Friends, Northern Indiana DSA activist Becca Burton has been elected as an at-large delegate to the DSA national convention. But she is a worker which means that she needs our solidarity to help get her to Atlanta. It is very important that socialism in Northern Indiana is represented at this convention so we are appealing to everyone who has joined, supported or "liked" DSA to contribute to her travel fund. Please donate through the PayPal listed below. If we get more than is actually needed the money will be used to spread socialism in our region. And with crises in housing,unemployment, health care, and education-and with racism and sexism adding to the economic crisis-we really need it. Paul Mishler.
