Looks like Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential hopeful from Lexington, is continuing to align her Green New Deal Platform with the Occupy movement as she stumps at OWS outposts along the campaign trail.
While in Delaware yesterday, Jan. 19, Stein, stopped by Wilmington’s Spencer Plaza, and spoke with Occupy Delaware protesters, according to the News Journal of Delaware.
“Stein said protesters with the Occupy Wall Street movement reflect the same dissatisfaction with President Barak Obama as members of the Green Party, which she called the nation's only viable progressive third party,” says a story and video posted to Delaware Online.
If that sounds familiar, it’s because Stein has been working the OWS link since her announcement remarks back in October, when she introduced a . A month later, in late November, Kris Kitto, a columnist for The Hill, even wondered whether Stein is the country’s first Occupy Wall Street candidate.
And today, Jan. 20, Stein, a former Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate, is rallying with the “Occupy the Courts” at the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., according to a campaign announcement.
In Washington, Stein is joining members of the Move to Amend coalition, which is working to overturn the Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which prohibits the government from limiting political spending by corporations and unions.
"Since 1996, the Green Party has called for a constitutional amendment to abolish the doctrine of corporate personhood," said Stein in the announcement. "Greens have been ahead of the curve, but today, the curve has caught up with us, and now this movement for a constitution that serves we, the people, has gathered a historic momentum."
