Friend of the show and Green Party candidate, Howie Hawkins (https://howiehawkins.us/) joins us to discuss his campaign, the obvious failures of our current system and his policies for change.
A co-founder of the Green Party of the United States, Howie Hawkins is seeking the party's nomination for President in 2020. His primary campaign issues include enacting an eco-socialist Green New Deal, which he first proposed in 2010 running for Governor of NY, where he got 5% of the vote. He wants to re-build a viable, independent working-class political and social movement in opposition to the Democratic and Republican parties and capitalism in general. He has played leading roles in anti-war, anti-nuclear, and pro-worker movements since the 1960s.
