PSL Candidates Gloria La Riva and Eugene Puryear What we stand for
U.S. OUT OF IRAQ NOW End the wars in Iraq & Afghanistan. Bring all the troops home now. Stop U.S. blockades & sanctions against Cuba, Iran, Venezuela, Korea, Sudan and everywhere. End U.S. aid to Israel—Support the Palestinian people’s right of self-determination. Free Puerto Rico. International friendship and solidarity, not imperialist domination.
FIGHT THE CORPORATE BOSSES Full employment—decent jobs for all. Job training for youth & the unemployed. Raise the minimum wage to $15/hour now. Free, quality healthcare for all. Expand and guarantee social security for all retired workers, disabled and unemployed people. Stop union-busting, expand the right to organize, including card-check recognition. Free, high quality education from pre-school through college. Housing is a right—End foreclosures and evictions. Stop environmental destruction—Make the polluters pay. Rebuild New Orleans—Right of return for all survivors.
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL Fight racism and the racist criminal “justice” system. Defend women’s reproductive rights, including the right to choose. Full rights for all immigrants. Reparations now for the African American community. Eliminate anti-LGBT laws—Equal marriage rights for all. Equality for disabled people. Stop police brutality and mass incarceration. Free Mumia Abu-Jamal, Leonard Peltier, the Cuban 5, Angola 3, S.F. 8 and all political prisoners.
