No Lies Radio will air a live three-hour Pacifica Radio Network broadcast from the Green Party Convention in Chicago on Sunday, July 13th as the convention comes to a close.

Former Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney's trek back from defeat takes her to Chicago this week and an improbable political rebirth. She is expected to be nominated as the presidential candidate for the Green Party of the United States and could appear on the ballot in as many as 36 states as the extreme long-shot rival to Republican John McCain and Democratic candidate Barack Obama, making McKinney the second black presidential candidate in the November race. McKinney, 53, a lightening-rod figure in her six terms as a 4th District U.S. Congressman, was defeated for re-election in 2006 by Hank Johnson after a much publicized run-in with a U.S. Capitol police officer and her accusations that the Bush administration was covering up information about the 9/11 terrorist attacks. She has campaigned since last fall for the Green Party nomination, traveling to 30 states with a small entourage, with little money, a slogan of "Power To The People" and a "10-Point Manifesto" for change that includes the immediate withdrawal of American troop from Iraq and Afghanistan; universal health care; the establishment of a Department of Peace; and paying reparations to blacks who are victims of discrimination and economic disparity. Going into the convention vote Saturday McKinney has a more than 10-to-1 delegate lead over her closest rival, Jesse Johnson, of West Virginia. "She's the presumptive nominee," said Green Party Political Director Brent McMillan Tuesday. "But our conventions aren't like Republican and Democratic conventions, which are coronation. So you never know." (excerpted from the The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, By JEFFRY SCOTT, Published on: 07/09/08)
