Global Greens meet in Liverpool #Greens2017

The fourth Global Greens Congress was held in Liverpool, England March 30-April 2 -- jointly with the Congresses of the European Green Party, the Green Party of England and Wales and the Global Young Greens - bringing together approximately 2,000 Greens from over 100 countries, including more than a dozen U.S. Greens. Although the decision to hold the Congress in the United Kingdom was made years ago, the timing was prescient following last year's 'Brexit' vote by UK citizens to leave the European Union, and the challenges presented by right-wing populism and nationalism around the globe, including the election of Donald Trump as President of the U.S."What should be the Green response to such challenges" was a theme that ran throughout many of the Congress workshops and plenary sessions.

MacAllen Peace and Justice Conference

A report from the 12th Annual People for Peace and Justice GatheringBy Adrián Boutureira, National Political Organizer of the Green Party of the United States The Green Party's participation at the conference came as a result of the relationship building work done in the region during the Jill Stein presidential campaign.

I still believe that securing a GP political presence in the region is a high-value objective, not just for the Green Party of Texas, but to the Green Party as well. Continue reading
