The Party for Socialism and Liberation interviewed people at an anti-war march in Los Angeles on March 20, 2010 to talk about the upcoming statewide campaigns in California. Those campaigns are Carlos Alvarez for CA governor, Gloria La Riva for Congress (CA-8), and Marylou Cabral for Secretary of State. For more information visit votepsl.org.
Carlos Alvarez is seeking the Peace and Freedom Party nomination for California Governor. Alvarez is a member of the Party for Socialism and Liberation. On February 9, 2010 the Full Rights for Immigrants Coalition held a press conference to denounce Santa Clarita Coulncilman Bob Kellar's participation in a January 16 rally of the anti-immigrant group "Save Our State."
At the January rally Kellar made many racist comments against immigrants saying that this country only has room for "one flag and one language" and that if believing in his anti-immigrant views is being a racist then he is a "proud racist."
Carlos Alvarez confronts Kellar's racist sympathizers during the press conference in this video denouncing the councilman. Alvarez then attended the city council meeting where several speakers denounced Kellar's racist remarks. He was later removed from the meeting for interrupting Bob Kellar during his anti-immigrant tirade that closed the session.
