    I don't think I can find a way down there for the meeting. Could somebody skype me in? If not, I have one request - can you discuss the issue of the Penokee Hills mine in Northern Wisconsin and see if the WI Green Party would like to issue a formal statement opposing it, and if anyone is interested in a inter-city organized movement to monitor Walker's every move on the mine and help stop it? Thanks!!

    Time for America to take a left turn, says Howie Hawkins in the Guardian. Howie's grassroots campaign for NY Governor took 5%, establishing the Greens as a rising force in NY politics and showing the way for Greens across the US. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/nov/06/election-green-promise-2016?CMP=twt_gu
