we’d rather vote for what we want and not get it, than vote for what we don’t want and get it

from Atlanta Progressive News

Green Presidential candidate and former US Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) made a campaign stop in Atlanta at an event hosted by DeKalb County Green Party and the International Action Center, on Saturday, October 18, 2008.

:

Dianne Mathiowetz of the Atlanta IAC introduced McKinney. Atlanta artist, Jibril, sang a rap song promoting McKinney. Guest speakers included the present writer, as well as Bruce Dixon of the Black Agenda Report.

“The idea of the vote is a powerful one that holds the imagination of people around the world. It’s the establishment’s job to make sure it doesn’t count for everyone,” Dixon said.

“A hundred years ago, Debs said we’d rather vote for what we want and not get it, than vote for what we don’t want and get it,” Dixon said.

:

“I do believe the people do have the power. It is a power that is unused and unflexed and when we flex our muscles, we actually can win,” McKinney said, citing the Civil Rights Movement in the US as well as progressive movements through South and Latin America which have brought leftist leaders to power.

“I have to dare to believe in this country we will be compelled to act. They worked very hard to disenfranchise people who think like us,” McKinney said… .

I listened to The Last Internationale while editing this.  They have a new “Free Troy Davis” track on  http://www.myspace.com/thelastinternationale – ISW
