Rally in Solidarity with Khader Adnan

khaderadnan
Khader Adnan is engaging in a hunger strike to win his freedom back as he nears his 40th day. He’s a Palestinian baker from the village of Araba striking against his prolonged detention with no indictment after being arrested and placed in Israeli jail in July 2014. Adnan’s 2011 hunger strike, in which he refused food for 66 days, helped him get released. He was re-arrested last summer during the IDF operation in the West Bank. We will rally in solidarity with him and some of are also hunger striking in solidarity.

Meet Jill Stein this Sunday!

Please join us for a meet & greet with Dr. Jill Stein at 2PM this Sunday at The Lab Miami in Wynwood.

Americans deserve real solutions for the critical economic, social and environmental problems we face. But the broken political system is only making things worse. Jill speaks about the urgent need for independent Green Party politics in America, not beholden to corporate interests. Jill doesn’t accept corporate money, and neither does the Green Party.

It’s time to declare our independence from the failed bipartisan establishment, and build a people’s movement for real democracy and real solutions: to protect our environment, address climate change, protect civil liberties, protect wages and create new green jobs, provide free higher education, and end racism and discrimination. Together we can do this – it’s in our hands.
