Occupy Inauguration Weekend

From Jill2016.com:

Tune in all day on Saturday, January 21, as we “Inaugurate the Resistance” on Facebook Live and here on the Jill2016 site.

You resisted the neoliberalism of Hillary Clinton and the neofascism of Donald Trump. Thank you! The resistance against Trump and the failed corporate two-party system continues even before he is inaugurated, and will continue afterwards as well.

The recounts in MI, PA and WI helped to reinvigorate the movement for election integrity. We will continue to fight to ensure that every vote counts.

In addition to the recount we are resisting corporate rule through protest.

On January 20, we will join thousands of people and organizations from around the country in Washington DC to Occupy Inauguration, sending a message to Trump that we reject his dangerous presidency from the very start.

On January 21, day one of the Trump administration, we’ll be on Facebook Live with an all-day online forum featuring Greens, social movements, and progressives, sharing resources and inspiration to support resistance and transformation.

We do not consent to Trump’s regime of hate, fear, and corruption.

We will oppose oligarchy with democracy. And we will build an unstoppable movement whose time has come, to put people, planet, and peace over profit.

Join us!

Join Jill Stein and fellow Greens for the final “presidential” “debate”

From Jill2016.com:

Over 75% of Americans want open debates.

However, the Commission on Presidential Debates, run by former Republican and Democratic party officials, has chosen to exclude Jill Stein from the presidential debates. As we have demonstrated with the previous two debates, this does not stop the Stein/Baraka campaign from speaking truth to power. We have been inserting Jill’s responses in each debate and livestreaming it to #BreakTheBlackout. We’ll do it again during the third, and final, presidential debate on October 19th. We’ll also follow the debate with a live Q&A session, open to all. Join us!
