Peter Camejo speaking in 1976

Peter Camejo -- who died this week after losing his battle with cancer -- is heard here speaking in 1976 on the NBC network when he stood for the US Socialist Workers Party as its presidential candidate.

I have slightly edited the interview and transposed it to mono mode. The poor quality is due to the original recording but it's a brilliant piece of socialist advocacy and showcases Camejo's skill for making socialist ideas accessible to a wide audience.
