Join Occupy Kensington (OK) tomorrow to flyer for Howie Hawkins, Green Party Candidate for Governor of New York. Meet at 6:15 p.m. at the subway exit at McDonald Avenue and Albemarle Road.

OK cites an article that the New York Post published yesterday about the Green Party's campaign:
With disaffected leftists upset at Cuomo, WFP officials are conceding privately that the Green Party will likely surpass the WFP’s vote totals with little-known UPS worker Howie Hawkins as its gubernatorial candidate.
Hawkins received about 60,000 votes — or 1 percent — as the Green candidate in 2010. Cuomo received 155,000 votes on the WFP line and 146,000 on the Independence Party line four years ago. Most of his 2.9 million votes, of course, came on the Democratic line.

Hawkins is now getting between 7 percent and 9 percent in polls.

"We will become the alternative voice to the establishment. We’ll have two parties on the left — the Green Party and the Democratic Party," he said.
