  • Green Party statement on Trump's missile strike in Syria

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Green Party of the United States strongly condemned President Donald Trump's unilateral cruise missile strike on a Syrian government airfield and called for a halt to further overt and covert military action by the U.S.

    Greens called for an internationally cooperative and impartial investigation of the nerve gas attack in Idlib province that killed scores of civilians, which supposedly motivated Mr. Trump to order the strikes. The U.S. alleges that the President Bashar al-Assad government is responsible for the gas attack, a claim disputed by some journalists covering the war.

  • Green Party to Sen. Bernie Sanders: Introduce Single-Payer / Medicare For All in your Senate bill

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Green Party leaders called on Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.-Ind.) to introduce a bill in the U.S. Senate for Single-Payer national health care (Medicare For All) and to drop the idea of legislation for a public option to be incorporated into the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

    The Green Party, which endorses Medicare For All in its national platform, supports House Bill 676 and said that a parallel bill for Medicare For All must be introduced in the the U.S. Senate.

  • Green Party of Ohio: Single Payer Is The Solution

    Cleveland OH:    The Green Party of Ohio has observed with interest the false "debate" that has occurred in Washington DC and in statehouses around the country.   
    We realize that the "Affordable Care Act", better known as Obamacare, is a flawed law that has never lived up to the promises the Democratic Party talked about during its passage.   
    The Republican plan, recently withdrawn by the US House leadership, is equally flawed.  Neither plan addresses the basic problem in the US healthcare system, the fact that our system, as presently constituted, contains a profit motive.   Insurance companies, far from acting in the best interests of their customers, have acted, and will continue to act, with shareholder and management profit in mind. 
  • Green Party congratulates Mark Webber and Cheri Honkala on the opening of his film "Flesh and Blood"

  • Green Party calls Trump "criminally negligent" for reckless policies as the climate crisis worsens

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Green Party leaders spoke out today about the environmental and public health threat posed by the Trump Administration's reckless industry-friendly actions, including attacks on regulations and Scott Pruitt's appointment to head the EPA. The Green Party has endorsed upcoming marches for environmental and climate justice, including the March for Science, April 22 in Washington DC; the People's Climate Movement March for Jobs, Justice and the Climate, April 29 in Washington DC; and satellite climate marches throughout the U.S.

    Greens are continuing to promote the Green New Deal as an alternative to regressive Republican and compromised Democratic policies.

  • Green Party urges voters betrayed by the DNC's sharp turn to the right to go Green

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Green Party leaders today reached out to voters frustrated and disappointed by the Democratic National Committee's vote against banning corporate contributions and Tom Perez's election as chair of the DNC.

    The Green Party is now focusing on local and state campaigns as a necessary step in resisting the Trump Agenda and ending rule by the "two parties of war and Wall Street."

    Greens said that the DNC votes confirmed the Democratic establishment's rejection of Bernie Sanders and his supporters, whom many Democrats continue to blame for Hillary Clinton's loss in 2016, as well as Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), who was seen as the progressive contender for DNC chair.
