WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Green Party of the United States supports the demand by a U.N. special investigator that U.S. officials and CIA personnel who authorized and carried out torture must be prosecuted.
Ben Emmerson, the United Nation's special rapporteur on counterterrorism and human rights, called for prosecution in the wake of a Senate Intelligence Committee report on CIA torture and "black sites" in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, released on Tuesday. Greens urged Sen. Mark Udall (D-Col.) to release the full report before he leaves office.
"The torture revelations -- some of which were already known -- show the extent to which the U.S. has turned into a 'security state' in which human rights and the rule of law have been abandoned. The Senate report exposes the appalling complicity of the Bush and Obama administrations and Democratic and Republican leaders in allowing torture and shielding officials who ordered or approved it from punishment," said Darryl! L.C. Moch, national co-chair of the Green Party.

Tell Mayor Duggan: Turn the Water On!
United Nations officials visit Detroit
Metro Detroit's water is not affordable. This year alone, water has been shut off to roughly 30,000 customers. Public health and families are at risk in the region. We need a new plan that makes water affordable and equitable. This plan needs to allow for public participation and expert input, and be based on accountablity and transparency.

The Detroit Green Party calls for a continued moratorium on water shutoffs and an immediate implementation of the Water Affordability Plan. The pause in shutoffs by the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) expires Tuesday. Lifting the pause and resuming shutoffs will put low-income people at risk again.
“Shutting off water off creates the conditions for serious health problems,” said Fred Vitale, secretary of the Detroit Green Party and longtime Detroit homeowner. “In Detroit, we have a poverty rate over 40%. Studies have shown that people will divert money from food and medicine to pay for utilities.”
