In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, www.jillstein.org, was handcuffed and arrested on October 31 after bringing food and supplies to a coalition of climate justice activists, known as the “Tar Sands Blockade,” who are attempting to stop the Keystone XL pipeline in Texas. She is currently at Wood County Jail awaiting processing.

“Everyone needs to step up resistance to climate-killing emissions,” said Stein, who was willing to risk arrest in order to show solidarity for this blockade. “Romney and Obama are only talking about the symptoms of climate change in terms of destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy; the blockaders are addressing the cause.” (more…)

GREEN NIGHT OUT: Money Out of Politics10.22.12

At Green Night Out on September 8, Alex Sheppard, led a discussion concerning “Money Out of Politics.” Sheppard is an organizer for Rootstrikers, www.facebook.com/phillyrootstrikers, which also meets as the Money Out of Politics Working Group for Occupy Philadelphia. They work to engage and educate people of all political beliefs about the corrupting influence of money over America’s politics and government and to mobilize citizens in actions to stop it.

Philly Greens Hold Kickoff for Presidential Campaign

http://www.opednews.com/articles/Philly-Greens-Hold-Kickoff-by-Chris-Robinson-121001-480.html

On Friday, September 21, the Green Party of Philadelphia (GPOP, www.gpop.org) held their Kickoff for the Green Presidential Campaign at the William Way Community Center, www.waygay.org, in Philadelphia.

Fifty members of the press and friends of the Green Party gathered to hear how Dr. Jill Stein, who is running for President, and Cheri Honkala, running for Vice President, will present a real choice for voters, www.jillstein.org. Erin Worrell Esq., a member of the GPOP City Committee was MC for the evening.

Chris Robinson, a member of the GPOP City Committee, began by explaining how the Green Party is not an alternative Party. “It is the imperative Party,” he said, “because only the Green Party has solutions to the crises facing our nation.” Robinson spoke about the Green’s opposition to the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan, their demand for a ban on fracking, the Green’s support for an elected school board in Philadelphia and their opposition to the sale of Philadelphia Gas Works (PGW). “On each of these issues,” Robinson said, “the Green Party is the only opposition to the two corporate parties which are running our society into the ground.” (more…)
