WASHINGTON, DC -- The Green Party of the United States is remembering former South African President Nelson Mandela as an inspiration in the struggle for global justice, liberation, and peace.
Greens expressed their sympathy for President Mandela's family and the people of South Africa and paid homage to his fight against apartheid and economic oppression, the courage that sustained him through 27 years of imprisonment, and his "Rainbow Nation" legacy.
Social justice and nonviolence are two of the four pillars of the Green Party. Greens believe that those who are now praising President Mandela -- especially U.S. political leaders -- should honor him by honoring those values.
The next State Membership Meeting will be held in Traverse City, Michigan on
November 2-3. It will be held at the Cambria Suites. We have reserved some
rooms under the Green Party of Michigan event.

WASHINGTON, DC -- Green Party leaders said that President Obama's decision for a temporary pause in the rush to win congressional authorization and launch an air strike against Syria was good news and a monumental achievement by the American people. Greens now urge the President to call off the attack permanently and instead support nonviolent efforts to end the strife in Syria.
President Obama announced the pause during his address to the nation on Sept. 10. It allows the pursuit of Russia's proposal for Syria to turn over its chemical weapons to international monitors -- a plan Syrian President Assad says he supports ("Failing To Convince on War, US Agrees to Follow Russia's Path To UN," Common Dreams, Sept. 10, http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2013/09/10).
The Green Party opposes any resumption of threats to attack Syria and supports a halt to U.S. arms shipments and training for Syrian rebels. Party leaders reiterated the call for a nonviolent resolution, with diplomacy, participation in the upcoming U.N.-backed Geneva II Middle East peace conference, cooperation with the International Criminal Court, and an across-the-board arms embargo.
Greens cite conflicting accounts regarding which side used chemical weapons and U.S. attempt to stymie the U.N. probe
WASHINGTON, DC -- The Green Party of the United States opposes threats by the Obama Administration to launch an attack on Syria and said that an order to attack would be a serious abuse of presidential power. Greens called for repeal of the Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) passed by Congress on September 18, 2001, which the two most recent presidential administrations have used to justify attacks on other nations.
Green Party leaders said that the accusations by the U.S., widely reported in U.S. media, that the Assad regime has used deadly nerve gas against rebellious civilians have been contradicted by numerous reports in foreign media, which claim that rebel factions have used chemical weapons.
