From our Platform
Our Green values oblige us to support popular movements for peace and demilitarization in Israel-Palestine, especially those that reach across the lines of conflict to engage both Palestinians and Israelis of good will.
We support the implementation of boycott and divestment initiatives against Israel similar to those applied to South Africa in the apartheid era, which includes pressuring our government to impose embargoes and sanctions against Israel; and we support maintaining these nonviolent punitive measures until Israel meets its obligation to recognize the Palestinian people's inalienable right to self-determination and fully complies with the precepts of international law by
- Ending its occupation and colonization of all Palestinian lands and dismantling the Wall in the West Bank
- Recognizing the fundamental rights of Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; and
- Respecting, protecting and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN resolution 194.
We support a U.S. foreign policy that promotes the creation of one secular, democratic state for Palestinians and Israelis on the land between the Mediterranean Sea and the River Jordan as the national home of both peoples, with Jerusalem as its capital.
This weekend the Young Greens (Youth Caucus of the Green Party of the United States) will be attending the 2017 SOA Watch Border Encuentro. There will be Green Party representation at the local, state, and national level at this year's convergence.
Tune in tomorrow and Saturday for our live streams via our Facebook page to learn about critical issues of border militarization and US imperialism in Latin America and beyond and how we can move forward as activists in solidarity and resistance.

Greens alarmed by proposed "Jewish State" bill to intensify Israeli apartheid
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Green Party leaders today expressed solidarity for Palestinian hunger strikers in their demand for improved prison conditions and treatment during their incarceration, including visitation rights.
In New Jersey, Greens participated in the "Salt Water Challenge" announced by Aarab Barghouti, son of Palestinian political prisoner Marwan Barghouti, in solidarity with the Dignity Strike prisoners.
The Tarrant County Green Party has joined the Black Lives Matter Movement in mutual support and coalition to strengthen the movement to stop oppressive actions of police brutality in the U.S and other countries internationally. The brutality of U.S. police officers toward African-Americans is intolerable. As activists realize that the same systems of oppression killing them in the United States are active worldwide, the movement spreads beyond American borders. Non-violent activists from Ferguson, Missouri, traveled to Palestine in 2015 to cement a growing sense of solidarity and connection with the shared struggles of Palestinians against the Israeli occupation.
