Detroit Green Party calls for: a continued moratorium on water shutoffs; adoption of the Water Affordability Plan

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.”

Green Party: Demilitarize the police, end racial disparities and bring justice to the criminal justice system

Greens speak out in the wake of the police shooting in Ferguson, Mo., warn about the emergence of a police state

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Green Party leaders and candidates are calling for the demilitarization of civilian U.S. police departments, asserting that military police tactics have created an "occupation mentality" in many communities.

Greens said that abuses of police power and disregard for the lives of young black people were on display in the shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer, threats against reporters, and a display of force that turned peaceful protest into a violent confrontation in Ferguson, Missouri. Greens expressed support for the protesters.

"The murder of Michael Brown by officer Darren Wilson must be investigated and prosecuted aggressively, but the crisis won't end with the punishment of an individual police officer," said Howie Hawkins, Green candidate for governor of New York (http://www.howiehawkins.org). "Out-of-control police who respond to minor violations with overwhelming force, toleration of racist cops, siege-like conditions in some cities and city neighborhoods, and record-high incarceration - all of these are evidence of a growing police state." (See Mr. Hawkins' statement: "Ferguson, Militarization, Federal Jurisdiction in Police Brutality," August 20, http://www.howiehawkins.org/ferguson_militarization_police_brutality)

Green Party calls for an immediate bilateral ceasefire in the latest Gaza assault


WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Green Party of the United States is calling for an immediate ceasefire in the current exchange of missiles between Israeli and Palestinian forces, negotiation for a just and peaceful resolution to the conflict, an end to Israel's occupation of Palestinian Territories and human rights violations, repeal of apartheid policies in Israel, and establishment of one democratic state for all in Israel-Palestine.

The Green Party opposes and condemns all violence against unarmed civilians and deplores the murder of young people on both sides that ignited the current face-off. Greens said that Israel must be held accountable for mounting Palestinian casualties in the assault on Gaza, with over 200 deaths, mostly civilians, caused by airstrikes in densely populated areas (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/israelgaza-conflict-...). Hamas must be held accountable for indiscriminate rocket attacks, which have killed one Israeli during the escalating crisis.
