#NJRR Special Reports: A Tribute to Kevin Zeese on New Jersey Revolution Radio

On September 5, 2020 the revolutionary left lost a giant. Kevin Zeese was the Co-Director of Popular Resistance a key organizer for Occupy Wall Street, a Green Party Organizer, and a member of the Venezuelan Embassy Protection Collective.He started his activism as a lawyer with NORML advocating for cannabis legalization starting in 1980. He is survived by his long time partner Margaret Flowers, who was by his side as an activist. The partnership left a lasting impression on our world. We hope that the messages he left behind in these productions and all his other great works continue to change the world.

His appearances on our independent media network meant a lot. His knowledge and insight during these shows centered on the Venezuelan crisis that resulted in a failed coup. When the US and Imperialist allies around the world iot was Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin along with Kevin Zeese and many others who formed the “Embassy Protection Collective.” This group of revolutionaries stood up for peace occupying the Venezuelan Embassy in defiance of world powers and in the name of peace. The embassy was surrounded by boneheads rooting for the fascist Guido, who led this “Clown Car Coup” into the ground.

“That’s our job, unite people, create solidarity, and build an independent political movement that really stands up for economic, racial, environmental justice as well as peace.”
