Gloria La Riva on Environment
Party for Socialism and Liberation nominee for President
Environmental racism pollutes our neighborhoods
Global warming, environmental racism polluting our neighborhoods, acidified and depleted oceans, fracking, critical drought, plastics choking the seas, nuclear weapons and waste -- it is clear that capitalism and production for profit
are destroying the planet and threatening all life. Harnessing the earth's renewable resources of sea, wind and solar power to create sustainable energy, seizing the oil and coal companies to stop their fossil- fuel pollution, stopping nuclear weapons
production, organizing production of food and goods to meet people's needs rather than the bottom line of corporations who produce regardless of the cost to the environment -- these are the most urgent steps needed to reverse climate change.
But this requires making people's right to survive above the rights of the capitalists to make a profit.

Rebuild black neighborhoods destroyed by Hurricane Katrina
All people displaced by Hurricane Katrina should have the right to return! Hurricane Katrina only allowed the corporate gentrifiers in New Orleans to set this process into motion with unprecedented speed.
Mass human suffering became a big-business opportunity for the vultures who want to make super-profits from the expropriation of the lands located in New Orleans’ historically Black neighborhoods.
