Carl Gibson, co-founder of U.S. Uncut, is joining with other Occupy Wall Street organizers to launch a new populist political party. While more details (including the name of the party and the identities of other key organizers) will be available when the group launches on March 20, the party will be explicitly anti-capitalist.
Says Gibson: "A new party that actively opposes capitalism and unites people around the basic ideas of meeting human needs would be widely respected and immediately acknowledged. This new party could stand apart from the two corporate-owned parties by refusing to take campaign donations from corporations, banks and developers, standing up for the rights of immigrants and indigenous people, calling for sustainable energy and development, making education for all a top priority, and believing in universal access to healthcare as a human right. While it would take time, focusing on building power first at the local and county level is the surest way to make lasting change."
In this interview with Resistance Report host Dennis Trainor, Jr., Gibson acknowledged that the Green Party is already working along a parallel path, but feels his (soon to be launched) party will do a better job of engaging young people and focusing on local politics as a way to build power.
It’s going to be interesting to see if this party runs candidates this year in the Senate elections in Louisiana, North Carolina, Arkansas, and Alaska. There will be incentive$ for this party to remain off the ballot in those contests.
As flawed as it may be free market capitalism has proven time and again the one system above all others for providing humanity all it’s want’s , needs, and desires.
Just as long as Occupy burns the liberal blue cities.
The most impressive thing about this is realizing that for some, open communism/Obamism isn’t enough. They need something even more batshit crazy.
You gotta respect that level of stupid. It’s something that happens rarely in Earth’s history.
I fully support the idea.
Parties like the Libritatian Party and the Constitution Party peel off just enough votes so demos can win.
I want the same for the democrats. This is the best thing that could happen to republicans.
A liberal Tea Party. Let’s give them Ann Coulter.
Looks like they are planning on bringing Nike to its knees.
It is about time the grifters preyed on the Democrats. It has been way too long that only Conservatives’ wallets were the only ones bilked in this way.
Wishing them success in getting on the ballot everywhere.
In most states, there is no way they can stop someone from filing as their nominee in an area where they don’t designate one.
Finally, a party for the lilly white liberals.
Another Communist organization.
Maybe it’ll siphon off some Democrat votes.
History has proven that human needs are met best by what he calls capitalism
Whatever happened to the Green Party?
“Finally, a party for the lilly white liberals.”
It was just a matter of time; liberal whites couldn’t be expected to toe the line on the affirmative action that has kept them out of jobs and political office forever...
