Jill Stein Speaks at Wilkes University,  7-9 PM

Green Party presidential candidate, Dr. Jill Stein, will be in Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday, September 21,
to deliver a policy address regarding her domestic and foreign policy positions.

She will be at Wilkes University’s Student Union Ballroom on the second floor, West South Street in Wilkes-Barre.

The stop is part of Stein/Baraka campus tour, which has become of staple of the campaign in 2016. Earlier in the day Stein will also appear at the main campus of Penn State University. 

Stein is expected to comment on Green Party of Pennsylvania’s effort to ban fracking, enact state-based single payer healthcare, ballot access reform and efforts to end the drug war. In addition, the campaign is seeking to gain support to be included in the presidential debates. “We have a candidate that is on 46 ballots, and running write-in campaigns in three additional states, yet we continue to be ignored by media and shut of debate,” said Carl Romanelli, Coordinator for Stein/Baraka in Pennsylvania. “We are determined to see a debate with all candidates included, not just the two despised corporate candidates,” he said. Jill Stein is a physician who has been active in the Green politics for the past 20 years. She was the party’s 2012 candidate for President of the US and she ran against Mitt Romney for Governor of Massachusetts in 2002.

Ajamu Baraka is an internationally known human rights activist and founding member of the US Human Rights Network. He is an associate fellow of the Institute of Policy Studies. He has written several articles addressing human rights, racism, crime and punishment, and justice.

The Green Party is a national party dedicated to Ecology, Peace, Social and Economic Justice and Grassroots Democracy. It is active in more than 80 countries around the world and in most US states.

Watch Convergence at the Border

At a time when refugees who are fleeing U.S.-sponsored violence are being branded as criminals, rapists and terrorists, and as anti-immigrant rhetoric continues to poison the public discourse in this election year, it is important for people of conscience to take a stand and to offer a different narrative. As politicians build walls, we must build bridges.

Stop the TPP

The White House is planning to use the Lame Duck session of Congress after the election this November to pass legislation to ratify the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

Our mission is to create the environment that makes this impossible. That’s why we are starting now to plan the #NoLameDuck Uprising! Sign up now to be part of it and we’ll stay in touch with you about what we need to do. There will be actions in Washington, DC and across the country.

The Lame Duck session takes place after the election and ends with the winter break in December. It is a time when some members of Congress have lost their seats but can still vote. The Lame Duck is often used to pass unpopular legislation. This year the Lame Duck runs from Nov 14 to 18 in DC, then members will be home for 10 days for Thanksgiving break and then they will be back in DC for the first three weeks of December, concluding on Dec. 16.

 

March 3 to 5, 2017 - Chicago, IL

Website: Left Elect

We are now organizing a second national conference March 3-5 2017 in Chicago to gather candidates, individuals, and organizations committed to a left political alliance in opposition to the two-party system of corporate-capitalist rule. We believe a meeting after the 2016 election cycle will afford us an important opportunity to discuss our diverse experiences, and to continue to forge unity between our local efforts, campaigns, and electoral vehicles.
