2012 Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein will be speaking in Portland, CT (just across the river from Middletown) on Sunday, September 8, on the topic of “After the election: the Green New Deal versus the surveillance state.” Stein’s did not end in November. Instead, she has continued to support the movements for social transformation in this country, attending countless rallies and conferences, fighting in court after being arrested trying to enter the presidential debates, organizing Green campaign schools, and issuing alternative stances to politics-as-usual from the Green Shadow Cabinet. This appearance will be one of many she has made since the election, and is being sponsored by the Green Party of Connecticut.
The event will be at the Portland Senior Center (7 Waverly Ave) starting at 3:00 PM. People from Middletown, including Wesleyan students, will be carpooling there. Please contact Ross Levin at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to join.
Date: Today, September 8
Time: 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Place: Portland Senior Center, 7 Waverly Ave, Portland, CT
Cost: Free (just like US elections, lol jk)
