Focus on Third Party Politics
I interviewed Yari Osorio, the vice-presidential candidate of the Party for Socialism and Liberation. Osorio and I were panelists in a discussion about race, the media and election 2012 at Rhode Island College April 13. Osorio, a native of Colombia, is a longtime activist who helped to lead dozens of anti-war and anti-racist demonstrations in New York City and Washington, D.C. He was arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge along with 700 other people as part of an Occupy Wall Street demonstration last year. Osorio talks about the role of people of color in the Occupy Movement, third party politics and the upcoming election.
