“Love Trumps Hate”: Actress Rosario Dawson on Why She Supports Bernie Sanders for President

4 April 2016

Both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders campaigned in New York state Thursday ahead of the New York primary later this month. More than 16,000 people gathered in St. Mary’s Park in the South Bronx for a Bernie Sanders rally, the first time in decades that a presidential candidate campaigned in the community.

Sanders stressed his Brooklyn roots and spoke alongside director Spike Lee and actress Rosario Dawson, who spoke with Democracy Now! after the rally. “I’m supporting Bernie Sanders because he says no to fracking. I’m supporting Bernie Sanders because we do need a single-payer healthcare system that takes care of everyone. And that is not a pipe dream; that’s something that’s happening all over the world and in really positive ways. We are a social democracy,” said Dawson.

Meet the Greenpeace Activist Who Confronted Hillary Clinton over Ties to Fossil Fuel Industry

4 April 2016

With the Wisconsin primary just a day away, Democratic presidential challengers Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders sparred over the weekend over whether fossil fuel lobbyists are funding Clinton’s campaign. The dispute took center stage after video emerged of Greenpeace activist Eva Resnick-Day questioning Clinton at a campaign rally at the State University of New York in Purchase on Thursday.

Resnick-Day has been working on a Greenpeace campaign to get candidates to take a pledge rejecting future donations from oil, gas and coal lobbyists and executives. “These lobbyists are people whose job it is to make connections with Senator Clinton to influence her policy going forward. And giving her money in the campaign, they’re clearly trying to find influence,” says Resnick-Day. “I don’t think that that is how democracy should work.” We speak with Resnick-Day, the democracy organizer for Greenpeace who confronted Clinton.
