Stein, Cornel West to protest Georgia’s restrictive ballot access laws today

20151120-jill-n-cornel-halfpageGreen Party presidential candidate Jill Stein will join Cornel West for an “Un-Block The Vote” rally at Georgia State University in Atlanta this afternoon at 4:00 p.m., followed by another event at Project South at 7:00 p.m.

The organizers write, “For decades, Georgia Republicans and Democrats have protected themselves against third parties with unfair laws that require 50,000 of voter signatures to place a candidate on the statewide ballot, a rule which does NOT apply to them. Without a third party on the ballot, you cannot vote for peace, or the abolition of student and consumer debt. Without a third party on the ballot there is no way to vote against gentrification or Common Core or privatization or mass incarceration. Join us and Cornel West this Friday and help us kick off the drive to get 50,000 and get Green Party 2016 presidential candidate on the ballot in Georgia.”
