GreenLine for July 8, 2022
Last weekend, it might have felt strange to observe a holiday celebrating independence and freedom, considering recent news. It’s important to remember that freedom is a constant struggle. You aren’t alone in that struggle, and there is no one we’d rather be fighting alongside than you.
“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.” — Albert Camus

Green Party Denounces Supreme Court for Siding with Corporate Polluters in Climate Fight
WASHINGTON — The Green Party of the United States today denounced the U.S. Supreme Court’s West Virginia v. EPA 6-3 decision, siding with coal and other polluters against the regulation of greenhouse gas emissions.
Greens said it may have been a death blow in the fight to halt climate collapse, and it is long past time to overhaul the rogue, undemocratic Supreme Court, whose powers and reach have expanded beyond that laid out in the Constitution.
Green Party Calls For Mass Mobilizations To Protect Reproductive Rights

Other states have varying laws, making it essential for communities to know their rights.

Matthew Hoh, presumptive North Carolina Green Party nominee for US Senate, has blasted the decision by the North Carolina State Board of Elections (SBOE) to deny the Green Party’s ballot access petition.
