Speaking in Paris at a Women Facing Climate Change forum, Jill Stein, a candidate for the Green Party presidential nomination said “It is critical that we stand up and stand together across issues, and across borders, to be a unified political force for people planet and peace over profit. The minute we stand up, we are unstoppable. It’s time to forget the lesser evil and fight for the greater good. The clock is ticking. It’s in our hands.
“I want to convey my sincere condolences at the terrible murders of so many innocent civilians in Paris on November 13. The assault in Paris has now been compounded by the brutal shootings in San Bernadino just as the COP convened. Thus the struggle against climate change in Paris is now embedded in a landscape of terrorism.”
