NEW YORK, August 10—Róger Calero (center), Socialist Workers Party candidate for Congress in District 15, at New York Board of Elections office filing petitions with more than 6,700 signatures to gain ballot status in the November elections. Two New York SWP candidates for U.S. Senate—Ruth Robinett (left), and Willie Cotton (third from left)—and two campaign supporters accompany him.

After filing the petitions, Calero and his supporters campaigned in Harlem talking with workers about the shooting rampage by New York police at a neighborhood party August 8. (See article on this page.)

Calero said, “My campaign demands the arrest, prosecution, and punishment of the cops responsible for the fatal shooting of Luis Soto and the wounding of four others in Harlem.” Two cops were wounded in addition to the four shot at the party. Calero’s working-class campaign received a welcome response from neighborhood residents as they stopped to meet the candidate.
