Trained as an historian, Peter Camejo had been involved in left-wing causes since his student days at Berkeley in the 1960s, where he had been suspended for using an "unauthorized microphone" at a war protest. Governor Reagan placed Camejo on a list of most dangerous Californians due to his involvement in demonstrations. After leaving Berkeley, he joined the Socialist Workers Party and served as a district organizer. In 1976, the party leadership chose the 38-year-old Camejo as their nominee for president. Four years later, the SWP expelled him for "idealogical impurity," and he later became prominent in the Green Party, running for California governor three times, and as Ralph Nader's vice presidential running mate in 2004. He died in 2008.
This is the official poster issued by the SWP to promote Camejo's candidacy.
