24 Arrested Protesting Outside First Presidential Debate

HeadlineSep 27, 2016

Meanwhile, hundreds of people protested outside the debate at Hofstra University to demand the presidential debates be opened up to third-party candidates. At least 24 people were arrested. Green Party presidential nominee Dr. Jill Stein was escorted off campus by Hofstra security and Nassau County police, despite the fact that she was invited on site by MSNBC, ABC, Fox and CBS for interviews. We’ll be joined by Dr. Jill Stein after headlines today for our two-hour “Expanding the Debate” Democracy Now! special broadcast.
