SNOHOMISH, Wash. — Mary Martin, Socialist Workers Party candidate for governor of Washington, spoke at the Snohomish High School candidates’ breakfast Sept. 27, representing the SWP presidential ticket. “What the working class is living through and all of you face — lack of jobs, low wages, unending wars, police brutality, attacks on women’s right to abortion — stem from the crisis of the capitalist system,” Martin told the 250 students. “It won’t be solved by any of the capitalist parties or candidates. We have to build a movement to replace capitalism and put working people in power. Our party is your party.” After the program, three students signed up to campaign for SWP candidates.
