Peta Lindsay on Russia Today video interview

Published on August 31, 2012

With the historic election of an African American president, have conditions improved for Black people in the United States? In this interview, PSL presidential candidate Peta Lindsay discusses the reality for African Americans and all working people under the capitalist system, and the solutions put forward by the campaign.

Unemployment for African Americans is more than double the national average. Foreclosure hits communities of color especially hard, has does racist police violence and mass incarceration.

The PSL is campaigning on a program that really makes a difference for poor and oppressed people: making a job a constitutional right, an immediate end to all foreclosures, an end to police brutality and mass incarceration, and more. Become a part of this movement, and join the PSL.

The Party for Socialism and Liberation is intervening in the 2012 presidential elections to bring a revolutionary, socialist message into the electoral arena. Peta Lindsay is the candidate for president and Yari Osorio is the candidate for vice president. To find out more about the PSL's 2012 Lindsay/Osorio Presidential Campaign, check out
