Voting for the Politicians of the Rich

Workers World Party is running John Parker, an African American man, and Teresa Gutierrez, a Latina Lesbian woman for President and Vice President in the elections this year. The campaign will raise the need for socialism as the way forward to overcome war, occupation, unemployment, racism, sexism and anti-lgbt bigotry, and the war at home against poor and working people.

Teresa Gutierrez first became politically active in the Chican@ movement in Texas. She eventually moved to New York to be part of a multinational party that puts the struggle against racism and national oppression at the top of its agenda, as an indispensable part of uniting the working class as a whole in the struggle to end capitalism and build a socialist society. A proud lesbian, she brings consciousness on the need to combat sexist oppression to all her work.

Gutierrez has met with progressive forces in Colombia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico and Mexico. She recently was part of a delegation to the Dominican Republic investigating the use of that country as a training ground for the paramilitaries who attacked Haiti and helped the U.S. depose its elected president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

She has visited Cuba many times in solidarity with that besieged but politically strong socialist country, and was a major organizer of the powerful 1992 "Peace for Cuba" rally held at New York's Javits Convention Center that demonstrated the widespread support Cuba enjoyed in that difficult period after the collapse of the USSR.

But I thought that that was the address of the ANSWER headquarters! And the IAC headquarters! They say they're different...

You're thinking too hard. Let the vanguard party do the thinking for you and don't worry about whether ANSWER, the IAC and WWP are all really the same thing or not. It will all work out if you just obey.
