As progressives, we are all still in shock and disbelief from Tuesday night’s election returns. The Stein/Baraka campaign stands in solidarity with you in your grief. We stand with you in your mourning.

And we will stand AGAINST the rise of right-wing extremism in our nation.

Yesterday, Jill had this to say:

“We do not consent to empire. We do not consent to racism. We do not consent to austerity. We do not consent to the prison industrial complex or a security state. We do not consent to a generation locked in debt. We do not consent to destruction of our climate, our environment or the basic premise of racial justice. We call for peaceful, nonviolent revolution by the ordinary people…”

Vice Presidential candidate Ajamu Baraka said:

“We stand in solidarity with the communities that have suffered from harassment, voter suppression, and now the trauma of a Donald Trump victory and what it represents. The only answer to right-wing extremism is to build alternative power; a principled and strong movement that expresses and agitates for the needs of the American people.”

And David Cobb, Stein/Baraka campaign manager said:

“Don’t mourn - ORGANIZE. We do not consent to Donald Trump and right-wing rule, and we do not consent to the establishment of corporate rule that got us here. Principled liberals and principled conservatives were shut out of this terrible election. The Green Party is prepared to be an instrument for popular power, and a new politics of integrity that must rise up and replace this rotten two-party system.”

According to polls in the New York Times, fully 80% of voters in America have been “repulsed” by this election. And with good reason.

Not only did the powers-that-be sabotage Bernie Sanders but thanks to Wikileaks, we know that they actively worked with corporate media to elevate Donald Trump as a “Pied Piper Candidate” to encourage the most extreme elements of the Republican party.

“Despicable” seems to be too generous a word for these actions.

As the Green Party, we are the political arm of this ongoing peaceful, revolutionary, social movement. Our democracy demands we fight on in defense of our values. Fighting for what is right is always worth it - and there is much more work to do.

Green Party activists are hitting the ground running by organizing and calling for actions against harmful policies, as well as for much needed reforms to the political system.

We are calling immediately for direct actions against the passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership in the lame duck session, for which we expect Donald Trump to come out in full support. We already have plans in place to mobilize against it!

We’re also co-organizing for “Occupy the Inauguration” demonstrations on January 20 and 21 (the anniversary of Citizens United).

Nothing has changed for us. Nothing has changed in regard to our leftist party-building directives. We were going to have to fight either way, and resist “empire” no matter what.



** FROM SUSAN SARANDON **

Dear Jill and team,

I've been waiting for any indication that Hillary Clinton's position on the issues that are most urgent to me, has changed. But ...

-She does not support the $15 minimum wage.
-She shows no support for legalizing marijuana.
-She supports TPP.
-She has sold fracking and Monsanto.
-She supports offshore drilling.
-She has no position on the Dakota Access Pipeline.
-She opposes the labeling of GMOs.
-She opposes the breakup of big banks.
-She takes lobbyists' money for campaigning.
-She opposes a binding climate treaty.
-She supports unconditional military aid to Israel.

I'm therefore very happy to endorse Jill Stein for the presidency because she does stand for everything I believe in. It's clear a third party is necessary and viable at this time. And this is the first step in accomplishing this end. Fear of Donald Trump is not enough for me to support Clinton, with her record of corruption. Now that Trump is self-destructing, I feel even those in swing states have the opportunity to vote their conscience.
