Popular Resistance: The hidden potential of the Greens

jill arrestedFrom Rivera Sun at PopularResistance.org:

“Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man.” -Mahatma Gandhi

While interviewing Jill Stein, Green Party Presidential Candidate in 2012, for the weekly Occupy Radio show that I co-host (listen here), it seems that she, like many of us, is frustrated by traditional politics. Our conversation revolved not around upcoming election or pieces of legislation, but around building a long overdue mass movement for Peace, People, and Planet over Profit – as the slogan for the upcoming Global Climate Convergence goes. This series of marches, demonstrations, civil disobedience and direct actions being planned for Earth Day to May Day 2014 is intended to set the ground for a global strike in 2015. The time has come to move out of traditional politicking and into the arena of concentrated, coordinated, effective nonviolent struggle. Read the rest of this entry »

Jill Stein and Margaret Flowers on Bill Moyers: The Path of Positive Resistance

p Jill SteinJill Stein, 2012 Green Presidential candidate, and Margaret Flowers, Secretary of Health in the Green Shadow Cabinet, recently appeared on Moyers and Company to discuss how they went from practicing medicine to what Jill Stein refers to as “practicing political medicine.” From Moyers and Company:

Between them, doctors Jill Stein and Margaret Flowers have been arrested nine times. In the face of injustice in America, rather than look the other way and stick to practicing medicine, they decided to do something about it.

Stein and Flowers serve as president and secretary of health, respectively, for the Green Shadow Cabinet, a group of 100 prominent scientists who speak out against dysfunctional government and offer alternative policies. Each fights against political corruption and a host of grievances that that have led many people to cynicism and despair.

This week on Moyers & Company, Bill Moyers speaks with Stein and Flowers about their personal journeys, what they have learned about our political system along the way and why they continue to fight the good fight.

Jill Stein on Grit TV: A party for the people

From Grit TV with Laura Flanders:

It’s hard to imagine a better time to consider parties other than the Democratic and Republican. In the sixteen days that the federal government was shut down and thousands of employees were furloughed or asked to work without pay, Washington demonstrated its inability to put people first, but for the first time.
