Rest In Peace, Kevin Zeese. Today I learned about his death from a tribute in the Black Agenda Report.
Only one Zeese came to mind -- the press secretary for the Howie Hawkins campaign. I had reached out to that Zeese twice last month. The first time, I called him and asked for the contact info to a different unit of the campaign. The second time, I CC'd him my news pitch to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette about the Green Party nomination ("Howie Hawkins' campaign for 5%").
Unfortunately, that Zeese was the Zeese reported dead as of Sept. 6.
Until today, I didn't know of Zeese's activism. I, however, learned that he was co-editor of PopularResistance.org, with which I was familiar -- if only for the previous version of its iconic logo.
Until I voted in the Green Party primary this year, I had yet to participate in electoral politics in over 10 years. As a supporter of the Howie Hawkins campaign, my thoughts are with Zeese, his loved ones, and his legacy.
He was 64.
