WATCH: AOC says measures are needed that “liberate people” to “end the unrest”

by Paul Goldberg

Saturday, during a walk she filmed on Instagram Live, progressive lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) argued that measures, such as Universal healthcare are needed that “liberate people” in order to “end the unrest.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

If you want the end of unrest, then you should be asking for measures that actually liberate people in their lives from the oppression of economic and social inequity.

I can’t with folks that are saying, ‘We need to stop this unrest, we need to stop violence,’ as though charging someone $1000 a month for insulin that they need to survive isn’t violent.

That is violent. Allowing people to die in these systems is just wrong.

In her Instagram post intro, AOC writes:

If you want to end unrest, end the conditions that create it.

If you want to end unrest, work to end the conditions that create it.
