Green Party Candidate Jill Stein excluded from Gubernatorial Debates (english)
30 Sep 2002
Jill Stein, Green Party Candidate and Clean Elections supporter, will be excluded from Tuesday night's Gubernatorial debate at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Though originally invited to the event, she was recently disinvited because of the Corporate Media's decision that she is not newsworthy.
Jill Stein, Green Party Candidate and Clean Elections supporter, will be excluded from Tuesday night's Gubernatorial debate at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Though originally invited to the event, she was recently disinvited because of the Corporate Media's decision that she is not newsworthy.

The Stein Campaign, along with Independent candidate Barbara Johnson, have responded with a lawsuit directed at the six prominent media organizations who control the content of the debates, arguing that support for only two candidates is not only exclusionary and undemocratic, but also amounts to an "in-kind" campaign contribution which is illegal under Massachusetts law.

Stein's supporters are contributing their help by contacting the media and urging them to revoke their decision. Others will be at the debate on Tuesday night to protest on location. Buses for the protest are leaving from Alewife Station in Cambridge at 4:30.
For more information, contact the Green Party office at (617) 623-4733 or visit Stein's website at jillwill.org
