Baltimore Greens condemn police inaction during the Capital Riot

We saw today that the police have no interest in stopping white supremacists from terrorizing our nation. Hours into DC's curfew, they continue to roam the streets of our Capital with impunity. Marches for Black lives are consistently met with rubber bullets, tear gas, and other violence because they challenge the structures that uphold white supremacy. The police don't keep us safe. We do.

Response to Trump's "Save America" Rally

The Young Ecosocialists condemn the actions that took place at the Capitol Building today, both those taken by protesters and by a complicit police force. Having clearly lost the election, President Trump has continued to embolden white supremacists, fascists, and other far-right radicals. This is nothing new for President Trump. He has a long pattern of embracing his fascist followers with comments of "very fine people on both sides" after the white supremacist Unite The Right Rally in 2017. He has repeatedly encouraged violence and failed to condemn these groups, famously telling the Proud Boys to "Stand back and stand by" in the first presidential debate of 2020. This behavior has predictably incited right wing violence all across the country. Continue reading

Looking Ahead to 2021

PA Greens: Don't burn Tracy Ridge in Allegheny National Forest

PHILADELPHIA – There is potentially a very harmful outcome waiting to happen in a well-known hiking area and recreational retreat known as Tracy Ridge. Tracy Ridge is located just south of the New York/ Pennsylvania state border in the beautiful Allegheny National Forest (ANF).  According to the U.S. Forest Service, there is a proposed plan to have a “prescribed burn” at Tracy Ridge. Their proposed plan is to burn the current ecosystem there. They say this will help promote the regeneration of the oak tree population. This proposal by the U.S. Forest Service has attracted a lot of negative attention, particularly among environmental organizations and the Green Party of Pennsylvania, (GPPA).  Continue reading

Force the Vote

PHILADELPHIA – The Green Party of Pennsylvania stands with those who are demanding the Democratic Progressive Caucus in the US House of Representatives withhold their votes for Speakership (Nancy Pelosi) to force a vote on the floor for Medicare for All. This would expose the members of the Democratic Party who have refused to sign on for Universal Healthcare during a global pandemic. It also reveals that representatives who have campaigned on Medicare for All are more concerned with their personal careers, party loyalty, and upholding the obsolescent duopoly rather than fulfilling a promise they made to voters in their district. This is a unique moment because there is a short window in which progressives in Congress can have leverage to bring the bill to the floor for the first time and the need for Medicare for All is greater than ever.
