Green Party of Tampa will march against Monsanto

Do you wonder sometimes if you eat a paprika or strawberry because it taste the same. You buy a tomato plant and cannot grow a new plant from its seeds. Most likely it is a modified organism from Monsanto or Bayer who want you and farmers to buy every year new seeds from them. This is a crime on nature. Bring them to court Continue reading

Hoenig, a former Green Party candidate for Congress, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Tuesday on while commenting on the falling approval ratings of both Trump and the Republican Party.

Community comes together in unity march

GLENS FALLS, NY — As he stood in the band shell at Crandall Park Sunday, giving the invocation to more than 125 people who turned out on short notice for a unity march, the Rev. Leonard Oates invoked the words of the Rev. Martin Luther King as the reason local residents needed to make their opinions known. "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere," he said, shortly before the group marched peacefully on the streets around the park, then returned to hear speeches about the racial unrest in America.

Send Human Rights Observers to Puerto Rico

On Monday, October 2 at 1:00 pm, the Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign (PPEHRC) will be visiting the offices of the Organization of American States in Washington, D.C. to ask that international human rights observers are sent to Puerto Rico to witness the extent of the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria and whether the recovery efforts are putting poor people before profits or are further contributing to Puerto Rico's economic crisis. We, the poor, are calling on the international community to witness the U.S. government's treatment of Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, and ensure that our families, friends, and loved ones receive the resources and justice they require.

Cease wins Ward 6 Green Party Primary Election

On Tuesday, August 29, 2017, Michael Cease was the winner of the Green Party Primary in Ward 6 of the City of Tucson Council Election. Cease defeated his primary opponent, Michael Oatman, with 64.71% of the vote (55 votes), versus 31.76% of the vote (27 votes) for Oatman. Mr. Cease will now move on to the November 7, 2017 General Election to face Republican challenger Mariano Rodriguez, and Democratic incumbent Steve Kozachik. While most municipalities in Arizona have non-partisan elections, Tucson is unique because its elections for mayor and city council are partisan (candidates may run with a party designation, or run as independent). Michael Cease is the chairperson of the Green Party of Pima County (GPPC). Last year, he ran as the Green Party candidate for Pima County Recorder in the November 2016 General Election. He set a personal and Green Party record when he received 80,588 votes (22.20% of the vote). Continue reading

Green Party Candidate Cassandra Lems Speaks Out On Corruption

As Green Party candidate for County Executive, I question whether either Democrat Laura Curran or Republican Jack Martins will be able to end corrupt hiring and contracting practices in Nassau County, since both candidates are taking money from individuals and companies that deal with Nassau County. Both parties will always have a problem with pay-to-play if they continue to accept such monies. And voters will always—with justification -- mistrust the motives of their governmental representatives. The political patronage system causes a lot of waste in government. People who are not qualified for certain jobs are appointed because they contributed money or time or service to political campaigns. One example of this from my own experience is that the president of a local Young Republicans club somehow ended up in charge of the emergency management program with which I volunteer, not because he was particularly qualified but because of his politics. This use of patronage is far too common in Nassau County politics. This is not an efficient or ethical way to staff government positions. Continue reading
