Kshama Sawant, Socialist City Council Member of Seattle, Speaks Out For Hawkins/Jones

At an event following Saturday's events at Left Forum 2014 in Manhattan, Kshama Sawant of Socialist Alternative, the 15 Now! Campaign and elected member of the Seattle City Council spoke out for the need to run candidates across the country who will fight for working people.

The event was a fundraiser for the Howie Hawkins/Brian Jones Green Party ticket for Governor and Lt. Governor of New York. "We have to continue to build strong, independent working class movements and independent, working class electoral candidates," said Sawant. "I really hope that everyone here, especially those of you live or work in New York City, will completely through yourself into Howie Hawkins' campaign."
