Delilah Barrios for Governor

Delilah Barrios grew up in what is well known around Texas as, 'The Valley'. Born and raised in Brownsville, my family moved all over the coast, Port Isabel, South Padre Island, Houston. My parents were hard working, honest people. They got along with friends and family, our house always had people there. I miss the ocean the most and it bothers me to think that our coastline is viewed as unattractive by people outside of the state. When I was little, that coast was my sanctuary. We were taught early on about conservation and responsibility to the environment.  Continue reading

Hunter Crow for Texas Railroad Commissioner

My name is Hunter Crow and I'm seeking the position of Texas Railroad Commissioner, because we cannot have a healthy humanity without a healthy natural world. Humans are part of nature and rely on the resources of nature for our very existence. We can’t continually harm major parts of the natural world without suffering the consequences. Climate change is the most far-reaching symptom of the broader imbalance between humanity and the rest of nature. There are many environmental challenges: polluted water, air, and soil; respiratory and reproductive health problems; and disappearing animal and insect habitat, to name but a few. We are facing major adjustments to the balance between humanity and nature, which we can plan to address and ameliorate or suffer the brutal consequences of runaway CO2 levels: rising seas, more frequent and damaging weather events, and more droughts.

Mariner East pipeline motivates activist's Green Party run for Pa. governor

Mariner East pipeline opponent Christina Digiulio, also known as PK Ditty, is running for governor of Pennsylvania as the Green Party candidate, saying she wants to use the forum to advocate for residents affected by industrial pollution. "It's like giving a voice to people who have been neglected, in my opinion," Digiulio said. "There are people in Pennsylvania in 2022 without water. That's a basic human right. And our own agencies aren't standing up for them, it seems they stand up for the industry more." Continue reading

With a Little Help from my Friends...

After recent world events, I am even more committed to the Left Unity Slate. The slate is a cooperative project of candidates from the two corporate-free — and peace-loving — political parties: the Peace and Freedom Party and the Green Party. We are the candidates who know there are solutions. On a personal/global note about solutions, I remember my Air Force dad saying, after 9/11, "Wars never solve anything, and the people who send you there don’t go there." Continue reading

Matthew Hoh's Statement on Escalation in the Ukraine

We call for an immediate ceasefire and an end to the buildup of US troops near Ukraine. The answer to the situation in Ukraine must take a course of demilitarization, negotiations, and respect for the fundamental rights of all people to live in peace and safety. We stand not with any military empire, but with the people of Ukraine, Russia, Europe, and the millions of working American families who lack access to affordable healthcare, food, and housing as unchecked empire building drains our society of its resources. We call on the people of these nations, including our own, to take a stand and demand a peaceful resolution to this dangerous escalation. Fundamentally, the root cause of the unfurling crisis is greed and competition for energy markets and other commercial desires, and the delusions of crackpot "realist" geopolitics that dominate thinking in DC, London, Moscow, and Kyiv.
