I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine. She's running as a Maine Green Independent Party member and needs to gather 2,000 petition signatures of registered Greens during that period. I'll be back to GN after March 15.

McKinney Still Speaking Truth to Power

Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney from Georgia is interviewed by PolitRussia in Moscow.  For many years she was one of the most progressive members of the Congress but was essentially run out of her seat because she dared raise questions about US-Israel policy.  McKinney was targeted by AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) for defeat.

Since then she has run for president on the Green Party ticket and remained incredibly active in the peace and justice movement.  She was an early voice warning that the US-NATO bombing (and ultimate take down) of Libya was illegal and immoral and would further destabilize North Africa and the Middle East.
