Jill Stein praises Fidel Castro: ‘A symbol of the struggle for justice’

“Fidel Castro was a symbol of the struggle for justice in the shadow of empire. Presente!” Stein wrote on Twitter Saturday afternoon.

Fidel Castro was a symbol of the struggle for justice in the shadow of empire. Presente!

The Tweet came on the heel of other pro-Castro remarks Stein had made in an interview with Paste Magazine.

Castro’s death Friday, she told the pop culture magazine “feels like the passing of an era of incredible struggle against empire right across the water—whether you live in Haiti or in Cuba or even much of the rest of South America, there’s been a real struggle for social justice and it’s been very difficult.

“Cuba was in many ways the face of that movement, which continues to this day.”

Greens Expose “Spoiler” Myth

Green Party responds to Stephen Colbert’s repeat of the “spoiler” myth, urges Colbert to invite Greens to appear on his show

Why did Gore lose in 2000? Because 13% of Florida Democrats voted for Bush, GOP vote obstruction in Florida, and a biased Supreme Court ruling

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Green Party responded to Stephen Colbert’s repeat of the “Nader spoiled” accusation during the Wednesday, May 18 broadcast of “The Late Show” on CBS, chiding the talk-show host for parroting a baseless Democratic Party propaganda myth.

“When you look at the actual numbers in 2000, it becomes clear that the spoiler allegation is the Democratic equivalent of the right-wing fringe belief that Barack Obama was born in Kenya,” said Paul Pipkin, co-chair of the Green Party of the United States and Green candidate for Congress in Texas, 20th CDhttp://www.newmenu.org/paulpipkin ).

Greens also corrected Mr. Colbert on his claim that Bernie Sanders “is now being courted by the Green Party to join their ticket” and noted that it would be nearly impossible, legally and logistically, for Mr. Sanders to launch a new campaign after the Democratic nomination. The Green Party has its own candidates for the Green presidential nomination (http://gpus.org/committees/presidential-campaign-support/2016-recognized-candidates ).

Greens have, however, invited Mr. Sanders to help promote the Green Party as a permanent independent alternative to the two corporate-money parties. Mr. Sanders has not responded…

Bexar Backs Jill — totally!


Upon coming back from COP 21 in Paris and Moscow. Dr. Jill Stein was invited to sit down with Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks for an in-depth interview. They discussed everything from Bernie Sanders to the two party corporate duopoly to Israel and Jill’s plan of people, planet, and peace over profit in The Green New Deal. (1 hour vid)

 While in Moscow, Jill Stein met with Aleksey Pushkov, head of the foreign-affairs committee in the State Duma, the lower house of the Russian parliament.

This was a great opportunity to lay out some of my foreign policy proposals and get Russian reactions to them. After this meeting I am more sure than ever that the ideas I’m bringing into the presidential race will allow the US and Russia to work together to address problems that would otherwise be intractable.”

 Earlier in Moscow, Jill Stein met Russian President Vladimir Putin who spoke at a dinner held for attendees at the Moscow forum organized by the RT news network.
