The other women running for the White House


On this election even we offer interview with two other women running for the White House, including the one who got esnl’s vote.

We begin with the candidate who’s box we marked on the ballot, interview by Abby Martin for The Empire Files, her series on teleSUR English:

The Empire Files: Meet the Socialist Woman Running for President

Program notes:

With just weeks until the U.S. presidential election—and with both mainstream candidates embroiled in unprecedented scandal—Abby Martin interviews one of the progressive alternatives, socialist candidate Gloria La Riva.

La Riva is a long-time organizer in the anti-war and social justice movements, a union leader and much more.

In this election special, Abby Martin and Gloria La Riva discuss her plan to “seize” all U.S. banks, Hillary’s “feminism,” and why supporting the “lesser evil” out of fear of Trump is a losing strategy.

Next, the candidate for whom we had originally intended to cast our ballot.

We changed our minds after watching Abby Martin’s interview of La Riva.

From The Young Turks Interviews:
