Gloria La Riva on Civil Rights

Party for Socialism and Liberation nominee for President


Affirmative action is under attack just when redress began

Affirmative action and equal education are under attack by the ruling class and its governments at federal and state levels. Affirmative action, which had barely begun to redress the gross inequalities suffered by oppressed nationalities and women, has been rolled back, gutted and repealed outright in many areas.

We demand that the Black community be compensated fully, with interest, for the historical racism and wrongs forced upon them by capitalist America.

Equal marriage rights for all LGBT

A mass struggle by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people is currently raging over same-sex marriage and the entitlement of same-sex couples to equal rights and benefits. The La Riva/Puryear presidential campaign demands full equality for LGBT people. All forms of discrimination and bigotry must end, including the repeal of all discriminatory laws. The reactionary Defense of Marriage Act must be overturned. We are for equal marriage rights for everyone.

Pay reparations, with interest, for slavery

Since its inception, US society has been marked by extreme racism. At least 12 million Africans were kidnapped and forcibly taken to the Americas as slaves. The capitalist economic system in the US was built largely on the backs of slave labor.

We demand that the Black community be compensated fully, with interest, for the historical racism and wrongs forced upon them by capitalism. The wealth stolen from Black people by corporations, institutions and the government must be repaid in full.
