Medea Benjamin Endorses Jill and Ajamu
They are amazing in their compassion and amazing in the hope they bring. This is real people power.
Jill and Ajamu represent a tremendous joining together of compassionate people under the banner of the Green Party in the race for the White House.
I firmly believe that this revolutionary movement promoting the restructuring of society with bold ideas, can and will transform government from catering to the 1% to caring for the 99%.
And this is the reason I wholeheartedly endorse Jill and Ajamu.
As a social activist and co-founder of CODEPINK and Global Exchange, I’ve successfully changed multinational corporate policy, improved the lives of sweatshop workers, and received awards from diverse humanitarian groups - including a Nobel Peace Prize nomination. I’ve even helped you get your “fair trade” coffee at coffee shops.
I’ve witnessed, with my own eyes, the power and beauty of fusing social movements into one overarching "movement of movements" like the Green Party, one that’s willing to use electoral politics as a tactic for desperately needed transformation and real change.
