DN!: Green Party VP Cand Cheri Honkala Joins “Romneyville” Encampment

from Democracy Now!

Set up for the Republican National Convention in Tampa, the “Romneyville” encampment is similar to Hoovervilles of the 1930s Great Depression. Residents of Romneyville are calling for an end to foreclosures, homelessness and the criminalization of poverty. We hear from Shamako Noble, a Romneyville resident and executive director of the Hip Hop Congress. And we speak to Cheri Honkala, the Green Party’s vice-presidential nominee in the 2012 election and the national coordinator of the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign
