Today members of the Green Party of the United States and our state Green
Parties reflect on a number of personal tragedies resulting from the events of September 11, 2001, and continue to work to prevent further tragedies resulting from these events.

We note the importance of remembering those who died eight 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 commit another 20,000 American troops to the occupation of Afghanistan and demand that he withdraw all troops from Iraq, as he had promised during his Presidential campaign.

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 to run more candidates.

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 Green Party notes that although a major incident has yet to occur in the United States, the U.S.-led response to the events of September 11, 2001 has resulted in 5,130 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 - major bombings in Madrid in March of 2004 and London in July of 2005, and continued instability through the Middle East.

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.

Remember, the Green Party takes no money from real estate companies, private health insurance providers, or lobbyists.  In fact, we don't take ANY corporate money because we think corporate money in politics is wrong.  If you agree, please help us today.  Your donation to the Green Party will help us make sure we have a strong Green Party today and into the future.

You can help us reach the goal we set in July at our national meeting of funding our operations with the help of 500 sustainers giving $10,000 a month by the end of 2009.  Sustaining pledges of $10 or $20 a month from everyone who reads this message will let us do so much more to support campaigns, candidates, state Green Parties, and our own national outreach efforts.  Become a sustaining donor to the Green Party today!

 

We've Got Everything You Need For Campaigning   :)

Back to GP.org

Did you hear that the Green Party is running a record number of candidates so far this year?   More Greens are running for local, state, and federal office than at this time of the year in 2005 and 2007!  Find a candidate running near you.  They need your help to hit the street and spread the word about their campaign.

Before you hit the street, though, make sure to stock up on Green Party merchandise you can use to promote the party and our candidates.  We have all the items you need in our online store.

When petitioning or going door-to-door for your candidate, the Green Party polo shirt is a great item that looks professional and casual at the same time.  It is 100% cotton, union-made in the USA, and features the Green Party logo on the chest.  The fabric is heavy for fall campaigning.

Speaking of fall, check out our new long-sleeve Green Party logo t-shirts! Just like our polo shirts they are all cotton, union-made in the USA, and feature our logo prominently.  Long sleeves are perfect for cooler temperatures.

Don't forget our short-sleeve version with our Ten Key Values printed on the back, and our signature Kelly Green t-shirt

Leave some information about the Green Party along the campaign trail with Green Pages, our national newsletter.  The Summer 2009 issue was written to stay relevant well into the fall, so pick up a bundle today! This issue is 20 pages, full of pictures, profiles of Green office-holders and leaders, and analysis of the Green perspective on the Obama administration and issues of the day.

Lastly, take advantage of our specially-priced Sunflower t-shirts! These olive t-shirts with a Sunflower logo and Green Party website on the front and four pillars in Spanish (Democracia de base, Justicia social, Sabiaduria ecologica, and No Violencia) on the back are priced to move!
