Green Party Seeks Peace on September 11th

Today we remember the losses of September 11, 2001, and re-commit ourselves to building a nation of peace, justice, human rights, and stability through our continued growth as an alternative to two administrations of war.


The Green Party Seeks Peace on September 11, 2010

On the ninth anniversary of September 11th, 2001, the Green Party of the United States and our state Green Parties reflect on the suffering caused on that day and continue to work to prevent further tragedies resulting from these events.

We note the importance of remembering those who died nine years ago and those survivors who work today for justice, peace, and the stability of a sustainable, democratic society.

We urge the Obama administration to fulfill the promises made to reverse the Bush administration policy of waging war in Iraq and Afghanistan in response to 9/11.  We challenge President Obama to abandon his plans to maintain 50,000 “advisors” and private contractors in Iraq and to initiate a new “surge” of force in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

We believe that building a strong base of Green officeholders will increase pressure on the local, state, and federal level for more peaceful alternatives to occupation and war. We need your support for our efforts.

On September 20th, 2001, the Green Party of the United States noted that a military response to the events of September 11, 2001 would lead to “a protracted war [that] will result in thousands, perhaps millions more civilian casualties, including many Americans, leading to further attacks against the U.S. and other nations and to possible destabilization of a region that includes Pakistan, which owns nuclear weapons…”

The U.S.-led response to the events of September 11, 2001 has resulted over 5,500 American deaths, over 30,000 injuries to American soldiers, an unknown number of civilian deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan – listed in published reports as anywhere between 100,000 and one million people – and the loss of trillions of dollars needed to rebuild infrastructure and maintain basic services here at home.

The Green Party continues to work toward its goal, also stated on September 20, 2001, of “peace with justice: peace which preserves the human rights and stability for all people in the Middle East, the U.S., and the rest of the world, and justice for those who have suffered death, injury, and loss”.

Today we remember the losses of September 11, 2001, and re-commit ourselves to building a nation of peace, justice, human rights, and stability through our continued growth as an alternative to two administrations of war.  We hope you will continue to support the Green Party of the United States.
