On May 25th, 2007, Cynthia McKinney was interviewed by phone on the air by New York City's WBAI. The interview included her thoughts on the complicity on the current Democrat majority, the Bush mobilization against Iran, the ongoing military interventions across the African Continent, speculation on the possibility of a Green Party presidential bid in 2008 and plans for the June 9th Revolutionary Love event scheduled for NYC as a fund raiser to retire the debt from her 2006 Congressional campaign.
In a 24 minute interview, she described the Democrat Party as "parting the waters for the Bush Administration" in his prosecution of his war on the people of Iraq.
Speaking of the current contenders for the Democratic nomination, Ms. McKinney told her radio audience, " . . . with the current crop of candidates, who are all supporting a military action against Iran, and who none of them support impeachment; they can not speak for me any longer."

In this radio interview, WBAI speaks first to Bobby Seale about the history of the founding of the Black Panther Party, its work to monitor rogue police conduct in the Black community and his current work.
Fifteen minutes into this twenty-three minute program, Cynthia McKinney joined the interview to discuss a recent case where the New York City Police Department harassed and arrested civil rights attorneys who stopped to observe inappropriate police conduct in the city. She also discusses the recent 'family jewels' revelations of illegal activities by the US Central Intelligence Agency. She discusses her legislation from the 106th Congress which would, if passed, have withheld Federal financing and material support from local police departments found responsible for violating the human and civil rights of people in their jurisdiction.
She wraps up commenting on the US Social Forum in Atlanta and on the unresponsiveness of the elected Congress to the demands for peace by the American people.
"Well, obviously, the members of the United States Congress and the Democratic majority in that Congress have not been responsive to the voices of the people who want a stop to war in Iraq and the senseless wars that are going on and the threat of world war. Because the wars have been funded.
"The American people have rachet up our engagement with the system that purportedly represents us. Now if people in Haiti, and Venezuela, and Bolivia and Chile and Brazil and Nicauraugua can stand up for their right to vote, to have their vote counted, to make democracy very real for them, then surely we in the United States can do the same. And we have an obligation to not only ourselves, but the international community, to do the same."

Former Georgia Democratic Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney is seriously eyeing a run for president on the Green Party ticket - and local and state Greens are enthusiastically rooting for her.
About 30 activists gathered at the Ronan Street home of Charlie Pillsbury, who represents Connecticut in the national Green Party structure. They came to help McKinney retire the $50,000 debt from her 2006 campaign (in which she was unseated in Georgia's open primary, which lets voters cross party lines) so she can focus on an even bigger race. They also came out to support Green mayoral candidate Ralph Ferrucci (pictured).
McKinney has been vilified by her political opponents and the major media since she arrived in Congress in 1992, and became an outspoken opponent of U.S. military intervention abroad, specifically the war in Iraq. She also questioned the Bush administration's actions leading up to the terrorist attacks of September 11 - a line of questioning that was misrepresented by the Republicans (and parroted by some powerful media outlets) as accusing Bush of knowing about the terror attack in advance. That helped lead to her defeat in 2002. She was re-elected in 2004 and defeated again last year, partly as a result of unflattering reports of an altercation with a security guard in Congress, which she also claims misrepresented the facts. She was also portrayed as anti-Jewish by AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, for her criticism of Israel.

Cynthia McKinney tells black women
to 'get a seat at the table'
If you have never listened to a podcast online before, you absolutely must listen to the one that we had last night with Green Party Presidential Candidate, Cynthia McKinney.
(see our podcast widget on the right)
Cynthia covered a wide range of political issues that have been purposefully removed from the public's discourse by America's two major parties.

Those citizens that want to abolish the American oligarchic form of government should vote for the Green Party, and put Cynthia McKinney at the head of the ticket. That's the very least one can do; the real task is to create multiple people's movements that will force an end to imperial warfare - a prerequisite for all the other tasks that face humanity. But opposition to oligarchy operates in a state of invisibility in America. Corporate media, through whose bizarre, distorted lenses most people view their nation and world, can make the opposition disappear, in an instant. Remember Dennis Kucinich? Most people don't, thanks to private media corporations that stage-manage and slick-package cosmetic versions of U.S. public discourse and call it "democracy."
