Drop all charges against the Venezuelan Embassy protectors!

Rent Reduction Now!

As you know, rent in California has skyrocketed for many families. Too many corporate landlords have taken advantage. Too many people are out on the street, and even children are worried that their family could be next.  That’s why our Green Party campaign for Congress is calling for a bold new policy: National Rent Reduction. Rent shouldn't be more than 15% of a family’s income (Californians now pay around 40% of income on rent).  Continue reading

State of the State: Greens Say Cuomo Fiddles While Planet Burns

ALBANY, NY – 1/8/2020 – Green Party of New York (GPNY) officers have released a statement responding to Governor Cuomo’s 2020 State of the State address, castigating New York’s top Democrat for ignoring real solutions to issues like the climate emergency and instead focusing on “small-bore, low-stakes reforms” that “pose no threat to his wealthy donors.” “Cuomo’s most ambitious move since his party’s takeover of the legislature last year was to install a commission to kill off minor parties in New York, under the guise of public campaign finance,” said GPNY Co-Chair Peter LaVenia.  Continue reading

No War With Iran

SAN FRANCISCO – The Green Party of California condemns the hostile military action by the United States’ administration in recently assassinating military leaders of Iran and Iraq. Such acts violating international law, as well as other provocations and threats against sovereign nations, will lead to more endless wars and devastation in the Middle East and the entire world, while endangering our military personnel who are being needlessly deployed as war fodder for misguided and failed foreign policies.

Where do you stand on the Assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani?

Hoffman Calls Out Senator Booker and Presidential Candidate Booker It was way back in 2001 when I heard these words spoken by Robert Jensen, "The world cannot afford any more U.S. patriotism." I took those words to include notions of so-called "American exceptionalism." On Thursday, January 2nd, as the world ushered in a new year, the world saw yet another example as to why. I first heard these words shortly after 9/11, when the U.S. invaded Afghanistan illegally on October 7, 2001 and about 18 months before the U.S. recklessly and illegally invaded Iraq. Both actions had nothing to do with 9/11. I opposed the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 despite those who called me unpatriotic and suggested I leave the country. The U.S. remains in Afghanistan, more than 17 years later, in the nation's longest war.  Continue reading

Anti-war protest in Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH – A number of Greens were in attendance at the Troops Out of Iraq / No War on Iran rally on Saturday. It was an eventful rally as speakers talked about the true costs of war and the need to end US imperialism. David Hughes spoke on behalf of the Green Party about the US’s long history of lying to get into wars. The event was even disrupted by apparent Nazis shouting anti-semitic slogans, but the crowd gave them the boot pretty quickly once identified. Continue reading

Terminate the war machine

Lost amongst the media's coverage of Trump's assassination of Soleimani is the fact that, last month, the Democratic Party caved to GOP demands by allowing more funding for war with Iran. Like most members of the Democratic Party, my opponent, the 14-term Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard, voted YES to more arms for Trump, all the while pretending to oppose Trump by voting for impeachment. This lines up well with Democratic Party history: Remember when Hillary Clinton said the U.S. should "totally obliterate" Iran? Continue reading
