Notice of Ithaca Talk by Howie Hawkins & Mark Dunlea
Green Party Candidates for Governor, State Comptroller in Ithaca on Friday, July 27
to Discuss Climate Change, Divestment, Green New Deal and Eco-Socialism
Howie Hawkins and Mark Dunlea, the Green Party candidates for Governor and State Comptroller, will give a free talk in Ithaca on Friday, July 27 on Climate Change, the Green New Deal, and Eco-Socialism.
The event will take place at 5:30 PM at the Tompkins County Workers’ Center, 115 The Commons, above the Autumn Leaves Used Books.
The Greens are calling for 100% clean energy by 2030 and a halt to any new fossil fuel infrastructure, including divesting the state pension funds from fossil fuels. The state presently has $6 billion invested in Exxon, Shell and other oil and gas companies that are driving climate change.
The Green New Deal would create a full-employment sustainable economy starting with the transition to renewable energy along with financial reforms and enforcing basic human rights to food, housing, education and health care.
Howie Hawkins, a long-time member of the Socialist Party, will describe how socialism seeks to restructure how the economy operates rather than merely providing some relief to the various economic and social problems created by capitalism.
Howie Hawkins, a retired teamster from Syracuse, is a long time labor and peace activist who received 5% of the vote in the last gubernatorial election, finishing 3rd. Dunlea, a former Town Board member in Poestenkill NY, is a climate change activist who headed the Hunger Action Network of NYS for 28 years.
