Christian Castillo is a founding member of the Argentine Socialist Workers Party (Partido de los Trabajadores Socialistas — PTS) and the Workers’ Left Front (Frente de la Izquierda y los Trabajadores — FIT). He was elected to the provincial chamber of deputies for the province of Buenos Aires as a FIT candidate in 2013 and is currently running for a seat in the national Chamber of Deputies.

He also serves as the campaign coordinator for the FIT presidential ticket of Nicolás Del Caño and Myriam Bregman. Todd Chretien caught up with Castillo one week before the October 25 national elections. They discussed Argentina’s history of social movements, how revolutionaries should participate electorally, and the Left’s prospects in Sunday’s elections.
