Stop the U.S. drive to war against Iran!

HIGH SPRINGS, Fl. – The Green Party of Florida condemns the warmongering being drummed up by the U.S. government against the government and people of Iran, and the insane drive to conflagration in the Middle East. Donald Trump and his inner circle — which includes Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton —claim that Iran attacked "Japanese-related" shipping while Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was meeting in Tehran with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. The incident derailed any attempt to defuse tensions between the U.S. and Iran following the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and the escalation of economic sanctions against Iran and anyone doing business with the Islamic Republic.

HB 1633 Defeated! (For Now)

Wheaton, IL – A big thank you to all of you who contacted your representatives or state senators, or who sent in witness slips opposing HB 1633, the obnoxious ALEC-sponsored bill that would have sweepingly criminalized certain forms of protest against what its proponents called “critical infrastructure” (such as oil or gas pipelines).
