Sign the Petition:
Open the debates to third-party candidates!
Message: The fact that only the Republican and Democratic Party candidates are given access to the presidential debates is a flagrant violation and mockery of the concept of democracy. These debates are of enormous public concern, and must not be under the control of private organizations and media corporations.
Commission on Presidential Debates, change your rules and open up the debates!
PSL Presidential Candidate Peta Lindsay will be featured at an event at Temple University in Philadelphia, which will be broadcast live starting at 4pm PT / 7pm ET on Wednesday, Oct. 3.
The PSL’s Lindsay/Osorio 2012 campaign is unlike any other. Presidential candidate Peta Lindsay and vice presidential candidate Yari Osorio have helped to lead demonstrations across the country against imperialist wars, racism, budget cuts, tuition hikes, police brutality, anti-LGBT bigotry, and in support of immigrant rights, women’s rights and the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination, and have been tireless advocates for the rights of working people and for socialism.
The PSL has achieved ballot status in 13 states covering every region of the country: the West – Colorado, Utah, Washington; the South – Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana; the Midwest – Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin; and the Northeast – New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont.
The 10-Point Program of the Lindsay/Osorio campaign calls for making a job, healthcare, housing and education the constitutional rights of every person; seizing the big banks and creating a national people’s bank; ending all wars and interventions; stopping racist police brutality and mass incarceration; defense of women’s rights; equality for lesbian, gay, bi and transgender people; full rights for immigrants; defense of unions; and saving the planet by ending capitalism.
