[Marxism] McKinney/Clemente Is the Ticket in 2008 -- video/audio links to prove it

The Green Party campaign of Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente has
ALREADY forged an electoral alliance between the Green Party and
important layers of the self-consciously Black and Brown justice
movements -- Mumia, and political prisoners, Katrina/Rita activists,
police violence, COINTELPRO, black farmers, etc. as well as the 911
truth movement, antiwar and impeachment activists, and feminists. The
campaign has a feminist dimension flowing straight from the candidates
but also because this is the first all-female ticket in U.S. history
-- in case this fact has eluded anyone.

I'll have more to say on why the McKinney/Clemente Power to the People
campaign is a huge political opportunity in many parts of the country,
if not in all yet, with some examples from New York City, and why the
Nader campaign is old, tired, a futile attempt to get vindication for
2004 and a sad misjudgment of what is possible in this political
period and a grave underestimation of the historic importance of
Cynthia McKinney's rejection of the Democratic Party.


But you won't believe me unless you watch/listen to these two
candidates yourselves.

So, please look/listen at some of the coverage below. I particularly
recommend the Pacifica coverage.

1)  the Pacifica special three-hour coverage of the Green Party
convention, hosted by Davey D. and including interviews with Rosa
Clemente, Omar Torres, Kathy Kelly, and Malik Rahim.
