Protest at the sham presidential debate in New York

On Oct. 15, the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates will conduct a highly stage-managed debate at Hofstra University in Long Island. Although they are on the ballot in New York State, working class and progressive candidates like Gloria La Riva (PSL), Cynthia McKinney (Greens) and others are excluded from the televised debate. The real needs of poor, working class communities will be ignored. The PSL's Presidential Candidates La Riva and Eugene Puryear will be on the ballot in New York and 11 other states. For weeks, the PSL campaign has been collecting testimony from hundreds of people who face constant police brutality and harassment, including in Hempstead , where the debate will be held. Around the country, La Riva and Puryear have been denouncing the $700 billion Wall Street bankers bailout, which they call one of the biggest transfers of wealth from working families to the richest bankers in the history of the country. We won't let the big business candidates ignore us! Join the demonstration! Gather on Wednesday, October 15 at 4:30 p.m. on Hempstead Turnpike between Uniondale Avenue and and Oak St. in Hempstead, N.Y. (Long Island). For more information, to get involved and to find out about transportation from New York City to Hempstead, contact the Party for Socialism and Liberation at 212-694-8762 or
