    "Saudi Arabia is using weapons purchased from the U.S. in a campaign of indiscriminate killing in Yemen, with mass civilian casualties, including children, and attacks on medical facilities," said Robin Laverne Wilson, New York Green candidate for the U.S. Senate ( http://www.robinforsenator.com ).

  • Green Party's Jill Stein visits Cincinnati on heels of Clinton

    Cincinnati hosted two female presidential candidates on Monday. Hours after Hillary Clinton took the stage at the NAACP convention, Green Party candidate Jill Stein addressed a crowd of about 75 people at a Clifton restaurant. Her speech focused on "the good news" that Green Party policies were attainable. She spelled out how clean energy, student loan forgiveness, free higher education and safer streets were all possible by drastically reducing military spending, reallocating subsidies and creating a truth and reconciliation commission to address the "the living legacy of slavery." Stein criticized both Clinton and Donald Trump. She said "invading other countries" has contributed to immigration problems and terrorism, and targeted Clinton for her military policies.
