Dr. Jill Stein will formally launch her campaign as a Green Party candidate for President of the United States at a campaign kickoff event Tuesday, June 23 @ 1:30PM at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.
Listen: Amy Goodman notes in this week's podcast: "You may have noticed that the Green Party presidential candidate, Dr. Jill Stein, was absent from the 'town hall' presidential debate at Hofstra University the other night. That's because she was shackled to a chair in a nearby New York police facility, along with her running mate, Green Party vice president nominee Cheri Honkala. Their crime: attempting to get to the debate so Stein could participate in it. While Mitt Romney uttered the now-famous line that he was given "whole binders full of women" while seeking staff as newly elected governor of Massachusetts in 2002, the real binders were handcuffs used to shackle these two women, who are mothers, activists and the Green Party's presidential ticket for 2012."
