Our New Orleans local drafted the following statement today (19 July 2016)
We the Green Party of New Orleans wish to express our support of and solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. In light of the recent tragic deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and so many others at the hands of the police it is imperative those who seek democracy work together. Our respective movements are aligned with regards to a shared vision for how to transform our communities. We strongly oppose the militarization of local police forces and mass incarceration. We support measures to increase local community oversight of police to ensure accountability. We stand ready to support the struggles of BLM in their pursuit of peace and justice in Louisiana and the country as a whole.
We maxed out our first venue, so we got a bigger one!
Louisiana Greens are quoted in Robert Morris' front-page story for the Gambit, "Seeking a third: Louisiana’s Libertarian and Green parties." Give it a look, and if you're interested in helping to build an electoral expression of the movements for justice, ecology, democracy and peace, then please join us at our 2016 convention. If you're in New Orleans, come out for the next Green Party of New Orleans meeting.Read more
