"Into the Streets Vs. Endless Wars"
Sander at the October 7 Peace Rally! This campaign is about practicing a new form of deep listening, and that's exactly what Candidate Sander did, interviewing a bunch of interesting peace activists at the October 7 March and rally:
I am especially inspired by peace activist Kathy Kelly - who loves me right back, and endorsed me for Congress, in this video interview we did at the Vigil for Yemen, in Union Square.
INNOVATOR VERSUS STATUS QUO
We don’t want any more burnt-out politicians going through the motions, believing everything the war-mongers tell them, voting for all the wars, and all the bailouts, and just flat-out ignoring the people. We, the People, have serious needs. And the system seems to not care.
But another kind of leader is possible. And another kind of leader is now the race for Congress in the 12th District.
Sander Hicks is an innovator. A doer. Sander started and ran three award-winning companies in New York. Hicks was recently recognized by an award, from the City of New York, “Best for Workers, Queens.” His companies have created good jobs for New Yorkers.
Public Interest Capital? What's That?
Watch a quick one minute video on how the people can use capital, instead of getting used by big money:
Democratic Primary, NYC, June, 2018
What's the Action Plan? Here are the Top Ten Issues:
Start a public interest venture capital bank to directly fund new ventures in the public interest.
Racial Justice: It’s time for the Confederate monuments to come down. They send a message to people of color that white people care more about honoring the history of slavery. It's time for all police to wear cameras, and to make their activities more transparent. It's time for more civilian oversight power over police power abuses. End all racial profiling.
Healthcare: Free Medicare for All. Period. Healthcare is a right.
Impeach Trump: Before he starts a nuclear war.
Organized Labor - Fair Deal for Labor: I support a $15 dollar federal minimum wage. For example, in my company we don’t pay anyone less than $15/hour.
Audit the Defense Budget - I support a U.S. military budget that has been adjusted to a level comparable to Canada, Britain, and France.
Affordable Housing- We need to enlarge tax breaks to developers to incentivize the creation of more affordable housing.
Let’s make peace. End Islamophobia. Commonalities in all religions can be used create unity and peace among diverse peoples. American military actions should cease immediately in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Nigeria, Russia and in the South China Seas
Climate Change - As a licensed contractor, I have personal experience doing flood remediation work in Rockaway and S.I. and Manhattan. We need to save the planet and set an assertive goal to wean us off all fossil fuels by 2035.
Expose the US-Saudi GeoPolitical Alliance. I support the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry's new petition for a Grand Jury in Federal Court in NY, demanding a Grand Jury investigation into the US/Saudi/etc. 9/11 cover-up. End the Saudi blockade of Yemen.
A Vision for Inter-faith Understanding, Unity, Conflict Resolution, and Peace:
Paid for by Hicks for Congress.
