Green Party of Texas Files for 2018 Ballot Access

The Green Party of Texas (GPTX) has filed party registration with the Texas Secretary of State’s office, declaring GPTX intent to nominate candidates to the November 2018 general election ballot. GPTX lost ballot access in 2016 when it’s leading statewide candidate, Martina Salinas for Railroad Commissioner, finished with 3.26%, receiving 285,558 votes. Despite this and other strong finishes across the state, GPTX failed to meet the 5% threshold in a statewide race necessary to retain ballot access.

A Green state of the state message

New York can lead the nation and the world toward economic justice and ecological sustainability. Our state can be an inspiring example of full employment at living wages, health care for all, affordable housing, quality public education, and 100 percent clean, climate-stabilizing energy. With a gross domestic product of $1.5 trillion, New York would have world's 11th largest GDP as an independent nation, ahead of countries like Russia and South Korea. New York has a strong economic foundation on which to build a sustainable prosperity for all. Continue reading

Resist #Russiagate

A Public Forum featuring speakers from the Green Party and the Party for Socialism & Liberation The FBI is not your friend! As the anti-Russia witch hunt takes a sharper turn on the left and continues to target progressive voices like Jill Stein; as the media and the state's campaign of misinformation whips up the country for aggression and war, it is very important for people to stand together and resist the new "Cold War" and McCarthyism.

Single Payer Health Care is our goal for the New Year

If you missed the December monthly meeting, fear not. We taped our guest speaker, Dave Attridge from Recovery Now, NY – including the Q&A section – and you can watch it on YouTube at https://youtu.be/1pToHVfZ1Ak. Folks who were at that meeting were interested in creating a local platform plank for the Green Party of Monroe County and that process is in progress. We hope to have something for registered Greens to vote on at the next monthly meeting. That meeting happens to be… Join us on Thursday, January 11th at 7:00 pm at the Flying Squirrel Community Space, 285 Clarissa Street in Rochester.

We will be discussing ways to get Single Payer Health Care in New York State. There will be action to take at this meeting, so it won’t be just talk. Just like last month, we hope to have a group of people (of any and all political persuasions) who would be interested in creating a Green Party local platform plank on health care. Continue reading

Take Action Now to Stop Preemptive Nuclear War

Good news! This past July, the United Nations passed a treaty that makes the use of nuclear weapons illegal. This is the first progress in nuclear disarmament since the 1980's. And although all 9 nuclear powers and their allies did not vote for this treaty, 122 countries did. The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) was recently awarded the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize, in part for its work to pass the UN treaty. The Green Party of Washington is a member organization of ICAN through Earthcare Not Warfare. The prize gives a tremendous boost to ICAN and the efforts to stop the trillion dollar "modernization" and expansion of US nuclear capability. Continue reading
