Harris County Green Party People of Color Caucus endorses Prison Strike

The Harris County Green Party People of Color Caucus has endorsed the Nationwide Prison Strike beginning August 21, 2018. This is also a very important date in history. On that date in 1831, Nat Turner led a revolt against slavery and today Incarcerated persons around the nation are leading their own revolt against modern slavery. The 13th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution bans slavery and involuntary servitude, except “as punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted.” This explicit reference to forced labor for prisoners in an amendment banning slavery has led advocates to feel justified in arguing the criminal justice system relies heavily on slave labor.

August Green Star News and Events from the Green Party of Pennsylvania

Green Party of PA News Highlights Greetings Fellow Greens and Green Supporters! Yesterday the Green Party of Pennsylvania filed for ballot access for six great PA candidates for the November election.  These candidates offer an alternative choice for those voters who refuse to support a continuation of the same old corporate-sponsored politics that perpetuate the destruction of our environment, the polarization and destabilization of our economy, the systematic oppression and imprisonment of persons of color, and the unending export of war and death throughout the world; all in the name of profit no matter which party is in power.  I am honored and excited to be a part of these Green campaigns that offer concrete recommendations to reverse the damage and lead us toward a future where people are valued above profits.
