Sanders abandons the revolution
See Kshama Sawant's article here. She is greatly disappointed in Sanders endorsement of Clinton, saying the latter is opposed to everything he just campaigned for. Yes, Sanders got some concessions in the Dem Party platform, but Sawant reminds us it's non-binding and Clinton can and will renege on several of those Sanders planks. Hence, Sawant is endorsing Stein of the Green Party and encouraging others to do the same. She also wants to use the Green Party as a springboard to forming a new party called the Movement of the 99% with Socialist Alternative a leading faction.
