Third Parties and Democracy

Kshama Sawant made headlines after scoring nearly a third of a Seattle election’s votes. Ramy Khalil, an organizer with her campaign, visited the studio to talk about how it happened, third parties and democracy.

Khalil works with the group Socialist Alternative, which Sawant represents. He talks in detail about Kshama Sawant’s historic campaign, socialism and electoral politics.

This program was broadcast in late 2013 on KPFT in Houston. Music interlude by Las Cafeteras.
