The Green Alternative: Prez Candidate Jill Stein on What It Will Take to Win in 2016

185

In late June, Dr. Jill Stein of Lexington, Mass., announced she would be seeking the Green Party nomination for President of the United States in 2016. This follows up Stein’s 2012 run on the same ticket, which received endorsements from progressive luminaries like Noam Chomsky and Chris Hedges.

That year, Stein and her VP running mate Cheri Honkala were arrested twice for their activism during the campaign: first, during a sit-in at a Philadelphia bank where they were protesting foreclosures, and second, when they attempted to enter the presidential debate at Hofstra University and bring attention to the exclusion of alternative political parties in the election process. Winning close to half a million votes in 2012 made Stein the most successful female presidential candidate in U.S. history.

Occupy.com recently caught up with Stein to discuss her 2016 campaign, the policies she’s labeling her Green New Deal, her take on the Black Lives Matter movement, and what’s changed for the Green Party since 2012.
