Huibin Amelia Chew, 23, is a recent graduate of Harvard University. She is active in local anti-imperialist, immigrant, and feminist organizing. She can be reached at hachew (at) gmail.com

Huibin “Amee” Chew is originally from Illinois and now lives in Somerville, a suburb of Boston. She just graduated from Harvard, where she majored in Social Studies and Womens Studies. Amee is going to China for a year to teach English and brush up her Chinese. She’s been petitioning since beginning of July. "I was really tired of the 'Anybody But Bush' rhetoric. Over the past year, I've been pretty active in the student anti-war movement. Right away, we were pretty disillusioned with John Kerry for supporting the occupation in Iraq - there's nothing that's going change that, except for a third party to challenge the Democrats and Republicans. I don't really believe in appealing to the Democratic Party for reform - student groups tried to, but they weren't able to get anything, because Kerry is so tied into the big businesses. There's no reason Kerry would listen to me if I did a petition about the abuses in Iraq - so that's why I'm putting my energy into Ralph’s campaign."

Amee went to Ralph’s meeting with the Massachusetts volunteers. "It was pretty cool, being was seven feet away from a candidate and talking to him face-to-face. It wasn't like he was going to censor me, and there were no security guards that were going to usher me out! I strongly support his platform because I think it has so much potential for improving the status of women in this country - universal health care and living wage will affect other issues like domestic violence and reproductive choice. I'm really tired of the liberal feminist groups like N.O.W. or Feminist Majority supporting Kerry without question - I think that totally limits the demands they can make. What we need to do is work with a third party to put pressure on them."
