#BlackLivesMatter Rally at Ferguson Police Department; Jill Stein Among Featured Speakers

Jill Stein to Speak at #BlackLivesMatter Rally at Ferguson Police Department
We say unequivocally #
BlackLivesMatter #BlackResistanceMatters #BlackPowerMatters


“We are inspired by, and are learning from, the words and deeds of the young activists leading the #BlackLivesMatter movement,” says Dr. Stein. “When other presidential candidates are forced to speak about the oppression and exploitation confronting Black people in our society, you will notice they want to quickly pivot away from a discussion about race to a discussion about the economy. They are operating from within a blind spot created by white privilege. In stark contrast to the Presidential candidates offered up by the two corporately controlled parties, we are building a people powered campaign that aims to dismantle institutional racism and white supremacy.


Our campaign is not just about democratizing our economy, it is about dismantling the systems of hierarchy and oppression that limit the humanity of Black and other oppressed people.”

The rally is one of the events in the multi-day Annual National Meeting of the Green Party that will take place on the South Campus of the University of Missouri-Saint Louis.

The meeting is open to the media and general public.
