From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Peta Lindsay (born 1984) is an American anti-war activist. She was a presidential nominee of the Party for Socialism and Liberation in the 2012 U.S. presidential election.[1]

Early life and education

Lindsay was born in Virginia and grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Washington, DC. She became an activist as a middle school student with the Philadelphia Student Union, a non-profit organization of students demanding a high quality education. Soon thereafter she became active with the A.N.S.W.E.R. (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) coalition.[citation needed] On September 24, 2001, Lindsay spoke at ANSWER's first press conference as a high school student. In 2002, she traveled to Cuba with Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization.[citation needed]

Lindsay attended Howard University and continued as a leader with the ANSWER coalition, including as a lead organizer of the January 2003 protest against the upcoming Iraq War.[1] She was recognized by The Washington Post in March 2003 for her anti-war activism in a piece entitled "Student Leader Sees Through Bush Propaganda".[2] In October 2003, Lindsay said of the Iraq War, "The US government has no right to try and recolonize Iraq".[3]

2012 Presidential race

In November 2011, Lindsay was named the Party for Socialism and Liberation's candidate for president along with Yari Osorio for vice president,[1][4] despite being ineligible to become president due to her age, under Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution; she would need to be at least 35 in order to take office.

Lindsay and/or a stand-in was on the ballot in 13 states (Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin). The campaign received 7,791 votes.[5]
