Black Lives Matter

Open Letter to All Who Live and Love

Statement on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, January 16, 2017 by Cynthia Joseph, Green Party National Headquarters Office Manager There is much concern with the direction we are taking. Unchartered territory, familiar and unfamiliar faces litter the landscape, coloring it with fear and apprehension. Our lives are not perfect. Even in ideal circumstances, we still have to pay bills, take care of our health and each other. As Americans, we’ve always seemed to find a way even in the direst of circumstances.

Goodbye, American neoliberalism. A new era is here

The Guardian By Cornel West November 17, 2016 The neoliberal era in the United States ended with a neofascist bang.

Black Lives Still Matter

Green Party of Texas By Aaron Renaud July 8, 2016 Last night was difficult for a variety of reasons. Chief among them is the realization that our pursuit of racial equality and police demilitarization will be even more challenging as a result. Many individuals have immediately chosen to blame the organizers and activists of the peaceful protests, here in Texas, and across the nation. The Green Party does not support violent methods of political expression, but we need to remember that the blame falls entirely on our corrupt and racist system and its institutions that terrify, brutalize, and murder people…
