Green Party candidate for US Senate to speak at Cornell on Friday March 3rd
Did you give George Bush any standing ovations during his State of the Union speech? Hillary Clinton, Dianne Feinstein, and John Kerry gave him 20! Why don't we have a real opposition party in this country? Are you fed up with the Democratic Party leadership trying to reach a "bipartisan consensus" with Bush and his gang in Congress? It's time for a radical change.
Todd Chretien, Green Party candidate for US Senate in California, will
explain why Democratic senators like Hillary Clinton and Dianne Feinstein support Bush's war in Iraq, why the progressives need a political alternative, how it is being built in California, and how it could be built in New York.
As a member of the Campaign to End the Death Penalty, Todd Chretien helped stop the execution of Kevin Cooper at San Quentin prison and was a leading member of the Save Tookie Committee which worked to prevent the execution of Stan Tookie Williams. He also helped author Proposition I (the College Not Combat initiative) in San Francisco, which passed with 60% of the vote in November 2005.
