The Socialist Party USA would like to congratulate Kshama Sawant and her campaign to win a seat on Seattle’s City Council. Challenging the two-party stranglehold on electoral politics as an openly socialist candidate requires tremendous courage and dedication. The fact that Kshama stands poised to claim victory is nothing short of astounding and should give us all inspiration as we ponder future progress in the electoral arena. Her message of human needs and environmental sanity has resonated with a public ready to fight corporate greed, and the Socialist Party USA recognizes the significance of what Kshama’s campaign has accomplished. Solidarity!
