GreenLine for September 6, 2023
The 2023 Green Party Annual National Meeting (ANM) was held from August 3-6th! We were delighted to gather virtually to provide an opportunity for all to participate this year, while we continue efforts to meet again in person in 2024 for our Presidential Nominating Convention.
My name is Jason Call and I’m running for Congress with the Green Party in Washington State in District 2.
"I want to be clear. There are only two people who can possibly win this seat in November of 2024
– and it’s either going to be me, or Rick Larsen."
No Republican has any shot of winning in the 2nd district. This community cares deeply about climate action, social justice, and labor rights – all things the Republican Party is inherently opposed to. Since 1965, this district has only been represented by a Republican for 6 years.
Our progressive, working-class community deserves a representative who will fight for working families and a livable future.
Please sign up for Jason’s emails, follow Jason on social media, and donate what you can to support Jason and help share his message with more supporters. Every donation helps! Website: https://www.callforcongress.com/

Green Party to join March to End Fossil Fuels in NYC on Sunday Sept. 17 in conjunction with UN Meeting on Climate. The Green Party of the United States (GPUS) has endorsed the September 17th March to End Fossil Fuels in New York City. Green Party groups mobilizing for the event also include the EcoAction Committee of both GPUS and the Green Party of New York; and Green Parties of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
The march and rally are being held in conjunction with the United Nations’ September 20 Climate Ambition Summit 2023 to accelerate action by governments, business, finance, local authorities and civil society. The Summit represents a critical political milestone for demonstrating that there is collective global will to accelerate the pace and scale of a just transition to a more equitable renewable-energy based, climate-resilient global economy.
Individuals marching with the Green Party can RSVP HERE.
Organizers expect the largest climate mobilization since the pandemic, calling for presidential action to phase out fossil fuels and address environmental injustice.
The March and rally are calling on President Biden to:
1. Stop all federal approvals for new fossil fuel projects and repeal permits for climate bombs like the Willow Project and Alaska LNG.
2. Phase out fossil fuel DRILLING on our public lands and waters.
3. Declare a climate emergency to halt oil exports and investments in fossil fuel projects abroad, AND lead a just transition to clean, community energy.
Connecting the Dots: Maui's Fires, Climate Change and Public Policy
The Green Party of the US is deeply saddened by the devastating wildfires that have ravaged Maui. We extend our condolences to our friends and the families of those who have lost loved ones, and we offer our support to those who have been displaced from their homes.
Climate change is one of several factors that contributed to these fires. The area in Maui has been in a drought for a number of years, and the fires were fanned by extremely high winds from a nearby hurricane. Climate scientists say that climate change provides additional energy to weather events, increasing their severity.
The burning of fossil fuels is releasing greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere, which are trapping heat and causing the planet to warm. The Green Party of the US and Hawai’i are committed to taking action to address climate change. We support policies such as investing in renewable energy, reducing deforestation, and improving energy efficiency.
Green Party Statement on Fukushima
Oppose Fukushima Water Release into the Pacific Ocean!
The Green Party of the United States and the Green Party of Hawai’i stand in solidarity with our fellow Greens in Japan and South Korea when calling for the end of the near-shore release of 1.33 million tons of contaminated water from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean. The Green Party of the United States and the Green Party of Hawai’i urges the Government of Japan to respect existing international treaties that ban the releasing of nuclear waste into the oceans. We also join the Green Party Korea and the Greens Japan in calling for the cancellation of ocean releasing plans. For this, we call for a public review of methods of on-land storage such as 'large tank storage' and 'mortar solidification treatment'.
The War at Home: Dissent and Repression Webinar
Sponsored by the Peace Action Committee - September 6, 2023 at 8:00 PM ET, 7:00 CT, 6:00 MT, 5:00 PM PT

All wars begin with lies, and the lies serve to conceal the real motives for war. Government motives for mass killing (war) include war machine profits, geopolitics, and plundering of resources. As the general population uncovers the real reasons for the war, government propaganda becomes less effective, which leads to growing dissent and repression of dissent.
Currently over 61% of people polled (according to CNN) no longer want weapons sent to continue the proxy war in Ukraine. The U.S. government has begun to use repressive measures against anti-war groups. In our webinar you will hear from dissenters and from those who have witnessed and experienced repression. It is in the interest of all of us to support dissenters and expose and support those who have been harmed by repressive measures. We welcome your participation in this webinar and your support of the right to dissent.
