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.
