GP-US hopefuls salute Global Greens meeting in Brazil

2008 Green national candidates salute, congratulate Green Parties worldwide on the
Second Global Greens Congress, São Paulo, Brazil, May 1-4, 2008

The four candidates seeking the Green Party’s presidential nomination and one candidate for the
vice presidential nomination issued a joint statement of salutation, congratulation, and support for Greens from all over the world gathering in São Paulo, Brazil, for the Second Global Greens Congress, May 1-4, 2008.

Jesse Johnson, Cynthia McKinney, Kent Mesplay, Kat Swift and vice presidential hopeful Sedinam
Kinamo Christin Moyowasifza-Curry
are currently touring the US seeking support for the nomination, helping several state Green Parties in their efforts to achieve ballot status, and winning new registrations in the party. The candidates took some time out for a joint teleconference, at which they decided on the message to the Global Greens Congress.

The Green Party of the United States will hold its 2008 National Nominating Convention in
Chicago, Illinois, July 10-13 (http://www.greenparty2008.org).

Joint statement from Green presidential and vice presidential candidates on the Second Global
Greens Congress, São Paulo, Brazil, May 1-4, 2008

We five national candidates, in line with the Green Party of the United States

  1. Commend the Global Greens for helping and supporting the Green Party of the United States,
    and for helping community leaders run for public office worldwide.
  2. Have strongly opposed President Bush’s invasion of Iraq and oppose the continued occupation; and have agreed that, if elected, will conduct an immediate orderly withdrawal from Iraq.
  3. Demand an end to US dependence on oil, coal, and nuclear power.
  4. Will continue to speak out against proposed anti-immigration bills, through participation in
    rallies and other actions to protest punitive legislation, such as House Bill 4437, directed at
    undocumented immigrants and those who assist them: Green national candidates emphasize that
    immigrants aren’t the enemy, and that people continue to come to US for the same reason people
    came throughout history — for a better life.
  5. Call for important steps to restore the power of the people:
    • Proportional Representation, to ensure that minority populations as well as majorities get
    fair representation; more information at http://www.fairvote.org
    • Legislation guaranteeing the people’s right to vote in national elections
    • Paper ballot trails to verify all votes and open-source software in all computer voting
    • Instant Runoff Voting, to ensure that election results reflect the will of the majority of the
    majority of voters; more information at http://www.fairvote.org
  6. Invite members of the Global Greens to attend the US Green Party’s upcoming National Nominating Convention in Chicago, July 10-13, and also to make plans to help monitor national elections in the US: while Democrats remained silent, Greens challenged alleged vote manipulation by Republicans in Ohio and New Mexico on Election Day, 2004.
  7. Share with the Global Greens Congress that “it’s cool to be Green” and that the American
    public’s interest in green living, from compact fluorescent light bulbs to local markets, has
    boosted interest in our party. We support you and encourage you to remain on the Green cutting
    edge in your respective nations and local communities.
