  • Green Party: Secretary of Education DeVos's school privatization schemes are bipartisan: Democrats promoted and enacted the same 'reforms'

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Green Party leaders said today that outrage over Senate's confirmation of patently unqualified Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education was entirely justified -- but the outrage should also be directed at Democratic Party leaders, including ex-President Obama, who worked to enact the same school privatization schemes favored by Ms. DeVos.

    "Democrats can hardly claim to lead the opposition to the Trump-DeVos agenda on public schools, when they joined Republicans in facilitating charter schools, vouchers, and other programs designed to transfer public education funding to private businesses during the past two decades," said Aaron Renaud, co-chair of the Green Party of Texas and a high school teacher.

  • Green Party: Democrats abdicating their role as the "resistance" to Trump

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Green Party leaders said today that Democrats in Congress are retreating from their claim to be an opposition party during Donald Trump's presidency.

    "We're seeing this over and over. Just enough Democrats are voting for Trump's appointees to enable their confirmation. In some cases, dangerous and unqualified appointees are getting confirmed with little or no Democratic objection. That's not what an opposition party does," said Laura Wells, 2010 Green Party candidate for Governor of California.

  • Green Party condemns the "Trump Wall of Shame" and other racist executive orders targeting immigrants

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Green Party of the United States strongly condemned President Trump's executive orders, announced on Wednesday, imposing severe immigration restrictions, expanding the criminalization and deportation of undocumented immigrants, and authorizing construction of a massive border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

    Greens urged all Americans to reject the "Trump Wall of Shame" and to stand up for the basic rights of documented and undocumented immigrants, racial justice, protected legal status and amnesty for the undocumented, and hospitality for refugees.

  • Green Party urges mass public pressure to reverse Trump's order Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Green Party is calling for mass public resistance in reaction to President Trump's announcement that he is permitting the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines to move forward.

    "The public protests, on-site camps, direct action, citizens' lobbying efforts, and law suits that persuaded President Obama to reject the KXL and halt the DAPL must resume, with appeals for congressional action to reverse President Trump's decision," said Robin Laverne Wilson, 2016 Green nominee for the U.S. Senate in New York and co-chair of the Green Party Black Caucus.

  • Green Party thanked President Obama for pardons for Oscar Lopez Rivera and Chelsea Manning, urges pardons for all other political prisoners and whistle-blowers

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Green Party leaders and activists expressed appreciation for President Obama's pardons for Oscar Lopez Rivera and Chelsea Manning and urged him to use his final days in office to pardon other political prisoners and whistle-blowers.

    Greens called for presidential pardons for political prisoners Leonard Peltier and Mumia Abdul Jamal, as well as whistle-blowers Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, Jeffrey Sterling, and all others who were punished or face punishment for revealing military, government, and intelligence crimes, public deception, and corruption.

    Those convicted for whistle-blowing or for political reasons and have already served their sentences should have their criminal records expunged, said Green Party leaders.

  • Green Party: Republican plan to repeal Obamacare should spark a new public demand for Single-Payer health care

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Green Party leaders said that the Republican plan to repeal Obamacare, Medicare, and Medicaid should motivate Americans to demand Single-Payer national health care ("Medicare For All").

    Greens asserted that making health care a right for all Americans -- instead of saving Obamacare -- should be among the demands that are front and center at the Inauguration Day protests next week.

    The Green Party of the United States has endorsed Occupy Inauguration and Greens are preparing to participate in events planned for Jan. 20 and Jan. 21.

  • Green Party endorses Occupy Inauguration; Greens will participate in protests on Jan. 20 and 21

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Green Party of the United States has endorsed Occupy Inauguration, as Greens prepare to participate in events planned for Jan. 20 and Jan. 21.

    Occupy Inauguration will feature a mass rally and protest in Washington, D.C. to coincide with President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration.

    Organizers intended Occupy Inauguration to take place whether Mr. Trump or Hillary Clinton won the election: "We knew, no matter who was to be elected, Trump or Clinton, the voices of the 99% would be shut out. We are calling for unity to stand against the oligarchy and demand representation for the people."

  • Green Party of Ohio supports ballot issue for Cleveland minimum wage

    The Green Party of Ohio is dismayed by the efforts of Cleveland city leaders to subvert a ballot initiative that has been approved for a special election this coming May.  

    These leaders, including Council President Kevin Kelley, have taken the undemocratic step of asking the state legislature to step in and block the vote from occurring through legislative means.
