The Party for Socialism and Liberation is running Peta Lindsay for President and Yari Osorio for Vice-President in the 2012 election. Lindsay, 27, is a graduate of Howard University who is currently pursuing a master's degree in education from the University of Southern California. She first became an activist as a middle school student, helping to organize a walkout of 2,000 in Philadelphia to advocate for increased funding for public schools. Since then, Peta has helped lead countless struggles against war and racism and for the rights of poor and working people. Yari Osorio, 26, is an EMT in New York City and a graduate of John Jay CUNY. He was born in Cali, Colombia and grew up undocumented, although he is now a U.S. citizen. Osorio has been involved in the struggle against the racist "stop and frisk" policy of the New York Police Department and was one of the 700 arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge in October 2011 during an occupy movement demonstration.

The campaign recently released a 10-point program:

Our 10-point Program
Raising the banner of workers' rights
February 15, 2012

1.Make a job a Constitutional right

Tens of millions are jobless and under-employed because the capitalists control employment. A decent paying job must be a legal, guaranteed right. The minimum wage should be raised to $20 per hour and a living income guaranteed for those who cannot work.

2.Make free health care, free education and affordable housing Constitutional rights

These are essentials of life and should not be run for-profit. Create a completely free and public health care system. Make all education free—cancel student debt.. Stop all foreclosures and evictions – end all mortgage interest payments to the banks

3.Shut down all U.S. military bases around the world—bring all the troops, planes & ships home

U.S. foreign policy uses the pretext of national security to enforce the imperialist interests of the biggest banks and corporations. That’s what is behind the endless wars and occupations. Use the $1 trillion military budget instead to provide for people’s needs here and around the world. Stop U.S. aid to Israel. End the blockade of Cuba.

4.Stop racist police brutality and mass incarceration

More than two million people are incarcerated in the largest prison complex in the world. Mass incarceration of our youth is the real crime. End the mass incarceration of African American, Latino, Native, Asia-Pacific Islander and white working-class youth. Fully prosecute all acts of police brutality and violence.

5.Defend our unions

Support the right of all workers to have a union. Fight back against the attacks on collective bargaining. Pass the Employee Free Choice Act—repeal Taft-Hartley. In the spirit of Wisconsin, rebuild a fighting—and striking—labor movement.

6.Free, safe, legal abortion on demand

Stop the attack on women’s reproductive rights and defend Roe v. Wade. Women have the fundamental right to choose, and control their own bodies.

Women still earn 22 percent less than men, and the gap is even more severe for Black and Latina women. Close the wage gap and end the gender division of labor.

7.Full rights for all immigrants

Abolish all anti-immigrant laws. Stop the raids and deportations. The government’s war on immigrants must end. The border wall must be dismantled.

8.Full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people

Make same-sex marriage a federal right—keep the movement in the streets. Fight anti-LGBT discrimination and violence.

9.Save the planet—End capitalism

We need a central economic plan to sharply cut greenhouse gases, clean up the environment and build a massive renewable energy network. The for-profit economic system creates incentives to pollute. No fracking, no Keystone pipeline!

10.Seize the banks—Jail Wall Street criminals

The banks’ vast wealth came from the people’s labor and tax-dollar bailout. Capitalist banking is a form or organized crime, rewarding greed and fraud with obscene bonuses. Billionaires looted and destroyed the economy. It is time to seize their assets and use those resources in the interests of the vast majority. Power must be taken out of the hands of the super-rich and the Wall Street criminals must be held accountable.
