WORKERS WORLD PARTY 2000 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN

MOOREHEAD & LA RIVA URGE NADER SUPPORTERS
NOT TO BACK DOWN UNDER PRO-GORE ATTACKS

SAY NADER CAN'T 'SPOIL' WHAT'S ALREADY ROTTEN

We support all those partisans of Ralph Nader who refuse to
bow to the enormous pressure to abandon his campaign and
return to the fold of the Democratic Party. We urge them to
say no. This would be a capitulation to the establishment
and a vote for a party that is run by and for the oppressors
and exploiters of the people, at home and abroad.

This widely orchestrated campaign against Nader, while
partly instigated by the Democratic Party, goes far beyond
the Gore forces. Sections of the ruling class are saying to
themselves that they do not want this movement to get its
hands on $12 million in the 2004 election. They do not want
this movement to gain confidence and momentum. The ruling
class thinkers know from experience that although this
movement is now well within relatively harmless, reformist
bounds, its most likely development will be in a leftward
and revolutionary direction, given all the instability of
the capitalist economy and the unending oppression and
exploitation of the system.

We are running an independent campaign on a socialist
platform to promote the struggle against capitalism, which
is the source of all the evils that the Nader campaign has
pointed out, and many more that it has omitted. Taking the
wealth of society back into the hands of the workers is the
only road to genuine liberation from big business and all
its evils.

But we denounce the vile campaign of the ruling class to try
to squelch this show of independence from the two capitalist
parties by a new generation. Their fear of this new movement
is a sign of hope for the future.”
