Jill, not Hill! Activists in Philadelphia Shift Their Support to Green Party Candidate Jill Stein


By Stephen Lendman


Green Party Candidate Jill Stein Announces Her Presidential Run

Activists in Philadelphia’s downtown plaza chanted “Jill, not Hill.”

Jill Stein, presumptive Green Party presidential nominee, a longtime physician/activist, a true populist, wanting her professional skills used to heal a sick nation.

It desperately needs what she can provide, media-supported corrupted duopoly power denying her the chance to become president by virtually ignoring her candidacy, opposing what she stands for.

She remains redoubtable and heroic, her progressive agenda what the world needs now, genuinely supporting:

◾world peace and disarmament;

◾democratic values;

◾the inviolability of rule of law principles;

◾universal healthcare and education as fundamental human rights;

◾living wages for all working Americans;

◾green, clean energy;

◾popular interests served over monied ones;

◾electoral reform free from today’s money-controlled process; along with

◾real social justice and revolutionary change
.

Seeking support in Philadelphia, she accurately accused Clinton of “backstabbing” Sanders by now exposed electoral rigging, urging his supporters to back her, saying “(m)y campaign is here.”

She’s an advocate for progressive change. Perhaps “Never Hillary” activists will give her enough votes to prevent a 2nd Clinton co-presidency – the top political priority above all others.

Her revolutionary spirit is real. Her message is “Americans deserve real solutions for the economic, social and environmental crises we face. But the broken political system is only making things worse.”


“It’s time to build a people’s movement to end unemployment and poverty; avert climate catastrophe; build a sustainable, just economy; and recognize the dignity and human rights of every person.”

“The power to create this new world is not in our hopes; it’s not in our dreams – it’s in our hands.”

Jill is a longtime physician, a mother, activist and organizer, a pioneer advocate for environmental health, a promoter of healthy communities, a fighter for peace, equity and justice so desperately needed.

Imagine America led by someone with her dedication for people over profits, assuring enforcement of human and civil rights, a distinguished woman of principle and honor – polar opposite duopoly choices.

I’m proud to support an eminently qualified candidate for president, a dedicated woman, saying “(w)e can build a better future together” and meaning it.
