#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.”Kevin Zeese #NJRR Live 5/29/2019

A Legacy That Will Impact History
Kevin played a major role in educating the public and stopping the illegal coup from succeeding. That was only a part of his life we were lucy renough to share with him. His work goes far beyond what we can write about today. His life touched on issues from drug policy to international affairs to writing. Kevin left a legacy that can be studied longer than he lived. We hope that our collection of his works live on and continue to inspire generations of activists. New Jersey Revolution Radio and all our comrades extend our deepest condolences to his partner Margaret Flowers and all his friends, family, and comrades. Kevin Zeese, Presente!
