Exclusive: Code Pink Co-Founder Medea Benjamin Reacts to 'Occupy Unmasked'
Medea Benjamin, left-wing activist and co-founder of Code Pink, has mixed feelings about Citizens United’s new film “Occupy Unmasked.”
Benjamin, who was featured in the film, told Breitbart News, “I don’t think it represents what the Occupy movement is all about… I think it took a small minority view and blew it up to represent the Occupy movement, so I don’t think it’s truthful.”
When asked whether or not she thought there were any parts of the film that were accurate, Benjamin explained, “it took little bits and pieces here and there but put it together in a framework that was totally inaccurate.”
She did, however, elaborate that, “if it inspires discussion and if it gets people talking to each other and if when the movie is out, they invite people from the occupy movement to come in and have a discussion, then I think it could be positive.”
Benjamin also spoke candidly about the relationship between Code Pink and one of the country’s top anarchist and union protest organizers, Lisa Fithian, who is also featured in the film.
