The Party for Socialism and Liberation is a running a mayoral candidate in Los Angeles this coming year, 22 year old Carlos Alvarez:
Carlos is an anti-war activist and leader of the ANSWER Coalition (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism). He has helped bring tens of thousands of people to the streets to stop the Iraq war and most recently, to fight Californiaâ€™s bigoted, anti-LGBT Prop. 8.
Flyers and issue positions can be found at votepsl.org, the party’s online hub for its electoral campaigns. Alvarez joins another socialist, Socialist Workers Party member and former presidential candidate James Harris (IPR article here), as well 7 others in challenging incumbent Antonio Villaraigosa.
