Jersey Greens support AT&T workers

40,000 workers at AT&T just announced that they will walk off the job TODAY Friday May 19 at 3pm ET if they haven't won a fair union contract by then. Workers have been at the bargaining table for months fighting for good jobs against a company dead set on lining its pockets at the expense of the workers who make them billions. Editors note: Union employees of AT&T walked off the job at 3:00 pm ET. This will be the biggest strike in the United States since 40,000 Verizon workers walked out last year, and may be the biggest strike of retail workers at a national company in U.S. history. The strike would include 21,000 retail and call center workers at AT&T Wireless across the country, and 17,000 AT&T West landline and DIRECTV workers in California and Nevada, along with landline workers in Connecticut. This is what working class people need to do more of if we want to stop the capitalist class from continuing their assault on workers. Continue reading

Manning, who leaked evidence of US war crimes to WikiLeaks while serving in the army, was held for months in solitary confinement, a violation of international law.

Green Party of New Orleans statement on monuments

The Green Party of New Orleans enthusiastically supports the efforts of the Landrieu administration to remove monuments to white supremacy from the streets of New Orleans, and we wholeheartedly endorse the efforts of Take Em Down NOLA in pressing the demands of this cause. As students of history, we know that these monuments were not erected as memorials to the Civil War so much as symbols aiming to reinforce the dominant ideology of white supremacy. The Confederacy, after all, lost the war, and slavery was outlawed; the monuments were designed to say, "Yet still, we rule." They were designed to maintain and reproduce a harsh and rigid racial caste system. Continue reading
