PHILADELPHIA – The State Committee of the Green Party of Pennsylvania (GPPA) has agreed to oppose the spread of fracking brine on rural PA roads.

Help save democracy in New York

ALBANY, NY – You've seen the headlines: The Republicans are stripping away voters' rights, state by state. The Democrats lack the political will to change the filibuster rule in order to pass legislation to protect voters' rights. Right here in our state, now-disgraced-and-resigned Cuomo and the State Legislature took away your right to vote your values when they changed the election law to radically increase New York's ballot access requirements. The Green Party of New York (GPNY) has never stopped fighting back — in the courts, speaking with legislators and engaging the public. It's an expensive fight: attorney fees, paid petitioners and well-resourced candidates for 2022 are needed. Can you help by giving $22 today, to the Green Party in New York? Continue reading

The United States’ Haitian Humanitarian Crisis

There can be no denying that the recent releases of videos showing Haitian refugees appearing to be be whipped and corralled by white men on horses at the US border are reminiscent of slavery days and slave tracking and bear the same shameful scar of racism and intolerance in the United States of America. Regardless of the reasons for attempts to enter the United States without documentation there never is, nor can there ever be, a time when whipping humans is sanctioned or acceptable law enforcement practice. While the explanation is that the patrol officers held loose reins and not whips the use of any item for the purpose of inflicting pain to stop an action is not acceptable including grabbing people by the collar from a mounted position on a horse.
