Gaza

From our platform

We call on the U.S. President and Congress to suspend all military and foreign aid, including loans and grants, to Israel until Israel withdraws from the Occupied Territories, dismantles the separation wall in the Occupied West Bank including East Jerusalem, ends its siege of Gaza and dismantles settler colonies and systemic apartheid toward its non-Jewish citizens.


March 2 Day of Action, Greensboro, NC

On Tuesday, the North Carolina Green Party issued a statement calling on Gov. Roy Cooper and the North Carolina Legislature to call for a permanent ceasefire and end all aid to Israel.

The Green Party has long stood in solidarity with the struggle for justice and liberation in Palestine. While the arrest of 2024 Green Party Presidential contender Jill Stein has been national news, Greens across the country (including in Illinois) have been joining rallies, marches, teach-ins, and encampments calling for an immediate ceasefire and the end of the current assault on Gaza, which has killed tens of thousands.


American students across the country are standing up and demanding an end to Israel’s genocide in Gaza. In response, corrupt university administrators are swarming the students with police in riot gear, staging snipers on the roofs overlooking the demonstrators, and violently assaulting students and their allies.


 

The North Carolina Green Party condemns in the strongest possible terms the violent repression of university protests across the nation, and especially at UNC-Chapel Hill. Students protesting at universities are exercising their right to public dissent from the foreign and domestic policies that oppress people both within and outside of the United States.


The Green Party of New York (GPNY) expresses its full support for and solidarity with the student-led occupations at Columbia University, City College of NY, the New School, New York University, and around the nation. GPNY also backs the demands of Columbia University Apartheid Divest (CUAD), the coalition of student groups involved in the occupation, which demands that Columbia and other universities divest from companies and academic institutions that profit from or engage in the State of Israel’s acts of occupation, apartheid, and genocide. 


  • Say Free Palestine on Saint Patrick's Day

By Matthew Hoh, April 17, 2024

I gave a Saint Patrick’s Day speech at a rally for Palestine today. Last year, I spent Saint Patrick’s Day standing in a bar with a fellow Marine veteran. In 2010, he had been a mortar man with Third Battalion, Fifth Marines, in Sangin, Helmand Province, Afghanistan. In a few months, more than one in five of those Marines and sailors were casualties. Thirteen years later, he still didn’t know what it was for.

The U.S. role in the slaughter in Gaza is massively worse than you might think.

As two-time Green Party presidential nominee Ralph Nader has written recently at Naked Capitalism and Common Dreams, the Palestinian death toll in the Gaza strip is likely being under-reported by a factor of ten.


The Green Party of the United States called on President Biden to demand an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, dismissing his call for a humanitarian pier as grossly ineffective in responding to the death and suffering of Palestinians.


I am Michael Dublin, husband, father, teacher and Green Party candidate for US House, District 2. Even if you are not in my district, I have an important message for you. 

My opponent in District 2 is Deborah Ross. Although 70% of the residents of District 2 want a ceasefire in Palestine, Ross will not support such a resolution in Congress. This is because like most of Congress, she is afraid of AIPAC, the American-Israeli Political Action Committee. AIPAC should be registered as an agent of a foreign government, but gets away with its heavy-handed influence on elections because the US government won’t publicly identify the committee’s biases, which are detrimental to the people of the United States. 


Despite local Zionists trying to spread false rumors that we have canceled this action, we have not.  See you on Tuesday!

By now it’s pretty clear that the Democratic Party is not going to stand up against genocide. Locally, it’s been months and we’re still waiting on a ceasefire resolution from City Council. And even worse, a Democratic-led County of Monroe has the nerve to fly a genocidal flag in front of the building.
