My name is Michael “Cal Songmaker” Ziesing and I am the Green Party candidate for the US Senate in California. Perhaps you want to know something about me.
I am a lifelong leftist with over 50 years of experience fighting for freedom and justice. My political activity dates back to the 1960s with my participation in the Vietnam War Moratorium. I was a leader in the student strikes following the murders at Kent State and Jackson State. I organized anti-Klan rallies in Connecticut, wrote books, published a small periodical, raised money to bring speakers from Belfast in the North of Ireland for a speaking tour. In 2011, I participated in the Occupy movement in Redding, California.
I addition to that I am a US Navy veteran and Native American tribal member (Yup’ik Eskimo). I have experienced being homeless and to this day receive food stamps, so I know what it’s like being poor. I am a single father with a son going to college.
I am trying to raise money to get on the ballot in California and time is of the essence. We have less than 3 weeks to get nearly $4,000 in donations to place a Green Party Senate candidate on the ballot.
I have a campaign Facebook page, here: https://www.facebook.com/ziesingforsenate and I’ve posted a very short “platform” on my Crowdpac page. You can also go to my Crowdpac page to make a donation. It’s at: https://www.crowdpac.com/campaigns/381370/michael-ziesing
