Gloria La Riva born Albuquerque, NM August 13, 1954. Peace and Freedom presidential candidate 2016, winning 60,990 votes; Peace and Freedom candidate for Calif. Governor 1994, 1998; strongly opposes US militarism and wars.
“The wars waged by the U.S. in Korea, Vietnam, Central America, and the Middle East have all been wars of aggression. . . the Guantánamo prison and military base must be immediately shut down.”
“A socialist government would take the initiative to dismantle all nuclear weapons. Its foreign policy would be based on friendship, self-determination, and solidarity with other countries rather than the current one of threats and aggression against many countries. I call for the dismantling of the military-industrial complex, stop the sales of weapons around the world, end U.S. aid to Israel and support the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination, including the right of return.” (interview, Oct. 10, 2016, Independent Political Report; photo peaceandfreedom.org)
