URBAN GREEN FAIR: DEREK WALL TO INTRODUCE CYNTHIA MCKINNEY FROM THE UNITED STATES GREEN PARTY



SUNDAY 9TH SEPTEMBER, BROCKWELL PARK, BRIXTON, 11am - 7pm



Green Party Principal Speaker Derek Wall will this Sunday introduce Cynthia Mckinney - ex US Democratic Congresswoman currently standing for the Green Party Presidential nomination - at the first ever Urban Green Fair to take place in Brockwell Park, Brixton.



Dr. Derek Wall said: "Cynthia Mckinney could be the first African-American president, the first women president and the first Green Party president.



"As Green candidate, she could well capture the votes of the many Americans who simply don't vote because they don't have a candidate to represent them.



"Her great and brave record as an opponent of the disasterous war for oil in Iraq, which of course has led to the deaths of 100,000s Iraqis and servicemen and women who are most likely to be drawn from African-American and working class communities speaks for itself.



"I am very pleased to have the opportunity to meet such an inspiring figure.



"Her untiring work to free wrongly convicted death row prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal, a prophetic writer on social justice is yet another reason to commend her candidacy."





The Urban Green Fair aims to highlight the imminent arrival of peak oil and the opinion of many climatologists that we have 8-10 years to drop our CO2 emissions by 60% or go over the 2 degrees celsius tipping point, which in turn will lead to runaway temperature increases of 3,4,5oC and risk the collapse of our the neo-liberal economic model.



There will be many well known speakers such as Mark Thomas, Peter Tatchell tbc, Cynthia McKinney - ex US Democratic Congresswoman and standing for the Green Party Presidential nomination,

Doug Jewel; ex Liberty Campaigns co-ordinator, Derek Wall; Green Party Principal Speaker plus a host of poets and comedians. In the transport zone there will be scores of unusual bicycles for people to try out, a large kids zone with rides and workshops, examples of solar panels, windmills and ways to save energy. The Solar Cinema will be showing the film 'Taking Liberties' and a Q & A with Nicky Ross the producer of the film. There will be a Speakers Corner for anyone to get something off their chest. Check the website for the full programme. The Urban Green Fair will be
powered by the wind and the sun and will use no fossil fuel.

I always wondered where McKinney would turn up after assaulting the Capitol Police officer and being drummed out of her DeKalb district.

Green Party President? HA!! Someday y'all will realize that this global warming religion is just a way to allow socialists to control your life.
