MIAMI—Deborah Liatos, Socialist Workers Party candidate for mayor of Miami-Dade County, speaks at March 28 immigrant rights protest in the Little Havana neighborhood here. “This fight for legalization of undocumented workers is needed to unite our class in struggle against the bosses and their government,” she said.
In the coming weeks, Liatos and campaign supporters will be joining families protesting the recent killings of seven Black men by Miami cops, and May Day demonstrations in defense of unions and rights of immigrant workers.
Liatos is also campaigning for the release of the Cuban Five, who have been in U.S. prisons since 1998. Fernando González, Gerardo Hernández, Antonio Guerrero, Ramón Labañino, and René González were framed up and convicted by the government on bogus “conspiracy” charges. The five had been monitoring the activities of counterrevolutionary Cuban American paramilitary groups in South Florida that have a history of carrying out violent actions and sabotage against Cuba.
