Declare Independence From Fossil Fuels

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary to act on global warming and dissolve our dependence on fossil fuels, a decent respect to the opinions of others requires that we should declare the causes which impel us to the dissolution. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that the burning of fossil fuels is a leading contributor to climate change. As a result of our addiction to fossil fuels, extreme weather, melting ice caps and glaciers, global sea level rise, diminishing food and water supplies, forced migration, and damage to public health threaten the world’s populations.

Response to Non-convictions in the Philando Castile and Sam Dubose

I think it would be remiss for the Green Party not to address recent non-convictions in the cases of Philando Castile and Sam Dubose this past week. It is quite evident, in my opinion, the tainted complexities of our democracy. The corruption of police or policing is only a symptom as is our current administration. With that being said, the harsh reality is more police will be acquitted. It is apparent that democracy only serves and protects certain groups and classes of people. The prosecution of policemen seems to be hindered by the very laws that are supposed to protect ALL citizens. There are major institutional, social and legal impediments to law enforcement being held accountable for the crimes they commit. It is a very complicated and sophisticated task. The difficulty seems to be intentional. So must our pushback. But before we can resist we must find ourselves out of this labyrinth of defeat. Continue reading

Your Honor,  My name is Darlene Elias. I am one of seven National Co-Chairs of the Green Party of the United States y soy Boricua. Thank you for the opportunity to address such a prestigious and influential group of people here at the United Nations. To begin with, it is the position of the Green Party that the United States needs to sever its ties with Puerto Rico completely and allow for its people to live free of colonial rule for once and for all.
