“I am running in this election because I think we need to tax the rich for real. We need funds for 100% renewable energy, public housing and other social services. The Bernie Sanders campaign in the US is a reminder that all around the world, in different ways, challenges are breaking out against the corporate 1% and we need to build our own people’s uprising against the billionaire class in this country.”
