On Tuesday, January 24th, President Obama will deliver his State of the Union address. There will also be responses and commentary from the Republican and Democratic parties.
On Wednesday, January 25th, at 8:30pm Eastern, we invite you to participate in The People's State of the Union: A Green New Deal for America. You'll hear about the real problems America is facing --and the solutions that Wall Street and the Washington establishment don't want you talking about. We can have an economy that provides jobs for everyone without depressing wages or destroying the environment. We can get Wall Street off our backs and win control of our lives and common future.
On this special online broadcast, you will hear presidential candidate Jill Stein describe the Green New Deal that can reclaim our future and fulfill the promise of America. Lines will be open for your questions and ideas. All you need is an internet connection and a computer.
Supporters are getting together at over 50 house parties around the country on Wednesday night to participate in this event. You can join them by hosting your own People's State of the Union house party, or by attending one of the "open invitation" house parties published on our events page.
Here is the schedule for Wednesday, January 25th: At 8:30pm Eastern, view the People's State of the Union, right here, on this website; at 9:10pm Eastern, we will begin a live video conversation with Jill Stein (again, this live video will appear here, at JillStein.org).
also, we had a showing scheduled for saturday in telluride at the library but someone complained and the library said it was partisan and they couldn’t show it, without showing the president’s speech and the republican response. so, it looks like tonight’s house party is the only one in san miguel county…
The Green media team is going to need a LOT of rework or new staffing, otherwise you’ll look like a joke.
This is really important – as you get more and more folks who are not “the choir” watching, there will be little motivation to overlook these “technical problems” – no second chance to make a first impression.
One of the best investments, IMO, the campaign could make …
It is getting a lot of play and is “hot”
The specific web address is JillStein.org — just tune in.
And yes, the video will be available after the fact for viewing online or download.
I am a computer “idiot” and if i can’t get to something easily, i get frustrated and po’d when i can’t figure it out – not a good way to have to approach a "campaign, and i suspect I may not be alone …. no second chance to make a first impression ..
saw a few quick (~10 sec) video clips from Independent Greens, but nothing with substance that I can use to make points with ….

There are obvious attempts to c0-opt OWS by political parties, just as there is much resistance to having OWS become “political” at all. Seems to me this could be bit of a dilemma for Greens. How to demonstrate that the Greens were the political voice of OWS even before OWS existed, without looking like Greens are trying to c0-opt it! Maybe it is by doing what i think Dr. Stein is doing – showing up, explaining her positions and agenda, and letting OWS realize, on their own, that they don’t have to start from scratch and that getting into “politics” is something they really need to do …
“if you don’t get into politics, politics will get into you” as a former Green candidate used to say…
In any case this article brings out what Ford is saying needs to be heard …. Good points (I suppose most here know that Ford has been critic of Obama from the get go …)
2) another thing that is popping up – outside of trying to c0-0pt lefties by RP folks, there are Rocky Anderson folks. Would like to know how GP is dealing with that …
I do believe that needs to be answered and i do not know how to do that in my discussions on line – help would be appreciated ….
