Latinx Greens demonstrate in defense of Venezuelan consulate in New York

In response to the seizure of the Venezuelan consulate in New York (Monday 3/18/2019) by allies of self-declared leader Juan Guaido, members of the Green Party's Latinx Caucus joined other demonstrators in defense of Venezuela and of international diplomatic law. Greens from the Latinx Caucus along with allies from "A Call to Action on Puerto Rico" had been engaged in a rally for the Independence of Puerto Rico at the United Nations when word came that Guaido's supporters had seized Venezuela's diplomatic properties in Washington and New York. Bronx native and Green Party Latinx Caucus Co-chair William Nogueras stated, "we received word that right-wing supporters of Guaido occupied the consulate on 51st., so we all went straight over to defend Venezuela." This seizure of Venezuela's diplomatic properties, apparently supported by the U.S. government, was in violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations which requires host countries to protect diplomatic missions.

The Green Party of California's Statement on Public Ownership of Utilities

The catastrophic consequences of the recent Paradise and Woolsey fires have born horrible and predictable fruit for the victims who remain, in many instances, still homeless and without recourse. To make matters worse, the State of California and its Public Utility Commission (CPUC) is abdicating its role to hold responsible the private utility, PG&E for its decades of failure to put the public interest before its corporate profits. The CPUC is proposing to bailout the utility and foist the cost onto the ratepayers. Continue reading

Anti-War Teach-Ins – Can you help?

We need the help of Green Party activists to organize anti-war teach-ins. The Green Party Peace Action Committee (GPAX) is looking for people to reach out to peace and student groups and progressive faculty. This effort coincides with national and local peace actions. We are developing background materials and are looking for Green Party members who can be speakers. Please contact me or other GPAX members. Thanks. I have proposed that the Green Party help organize anti-war teach-ins on "From Yemen to Venezuela: US Aggression Must End". We should be able to organize quite a few if we put a major effort into it, setting a goal of 20 to 25 teach-ins (nationwide). It is possible to organize 4 to 5 teach-ins here in Ohio. Targeting college campuses should be a priority. I believe this effort would help to build the peace movement and at the same time build the Green Party. Continue reading
