Residents of St. Petersburg, Florida hit the polls for a radical primary elections!

ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA—Today is a historic day for the people of St. Petersburg as they gear up excitedly, ready to make real change in the city by voting in two of the most radical elections that the city has ever seen.

The race for District 6 City Council and Mayor of St. Petersburg has reached its climax as the masses head to the polls to cast their votes for the candidates with the best plans to bring real, material change to the city.

Eritha Akilé Cainion is a favorite candidate for District 6 City Council, with her “Radical Times Call For Radical Solutions” campaign. Throughout her campaign, she has raised up the demand for reparations to African (black) people as well as Black Community Control of the Police. 

While other candidates were championing the same police who shoot black people down in the streets, 20-year-old Cainion has denounced these killer cops and demanded that they be charged for their crimes. 

She demands that the cops who patrol our communities be held accountable to members of the black community who will ultimately make the determination on who gets hired, how they are trained and who gets fired as police.

Her running mate, 27-year-old Jesse Nevel, has an equally radical platform of “Unity Through Reparations.” Nevel has worked for a number of years under the leadership of African people, to enter the white communities and organize white people to pay reparations to African people.

Unlike the white people who make up the white left, Jesse has taken the stance to organize white people to take an active, material part is overturning colonialism and the oppression that African people face.

And unlike the other mayoral candidates who dismiss that black people are owed reparations for past and current crimes, Nevel’s platform makes it clear that in order to unite the city of St. Pete, reparations must be on the ballot.

So head to the polls! Take an active role in making radical change in our city!
