Stein to address rally at Ferguson Police Department Saturday

360px-Jill_Stein_OWS_S17Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein will address a rally outside the Ferguson, Missouri Police Department Saturday afternoon.

In a statement, Stein said, “We are inspired by, and are learning from, the words and deeds of the young activists leading the Black Lives Matter movement. When other presidential candidates are forced to speak about the oppression and exploitation confronting black people in our society, you will notice they want to quickly pivot away from a discussion about race to a discussion about the economy. They are operating from within a blind spot created by white privilege.”

The rally is being held as part of the Green Party Annual National Meeting taking place Thursday through Sunday in St. Louis.
