Michigan Greens Support New Fracking-Ban Petition Drive

The Green Party of Michigan (GPMI) is supporting the latest effort to ban horizontal hydraulic fracturing -- known as fracking -- in the state of Michigan.

A petition drive by the Committee to Ban Fracking in Michigan kicks off statewide today, aiming to gather signatures to put the matter before voters in 2016. The new law proposed in the petition would ban both fracking and frack wastes from Michigan.

"High-volume horizontal fracking is not the kind of fracking that's been done here for the last sixty years," says Candace Caveny of Lapeer, GPMI's 2014 candidate for Lieutenant Governor. "It's a new process the industry just began using in the 1990s.

Michigan Greens Renew Call to Decommission Line 5, Enbridge's 60-Year-Old Pipeline Through Mackinac Straits

In recognition of World Water Day on March 22, the Green Party of Michigan (GPMI) renewed its opposition to Enbridge's Line 5 fossil-fuel pipeline through the Straits of Mackinac.

At the urging of Chris Wahmhoff, the party's 2014 US Senate candidate, Greens approved a call to decommission the 60-year-old pipeline at a state membership meeting March 14-15 in East Lansing.

Green Party opposes U.S. military aid for Ukraine

Washington is using Ukraine to provoke a NATO vs. Russia face-off in a new Cold War, say Greens

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Green Party opposes proposed plans to provide Ukraine's armed forces military aid to fight rebels who are allegedly receiving assistance from Russia and urges President Obama to reject the advice of warhawk advisors and Congressmembers.

"Washington has used the people of Ukraine as chess pieces in a bid to strengthen NATO and isolate Russia politically, militarily, and economically, taking advantage of Russia's vulnerability in the wake of sanctions and Saudi Arabia's reduction of oil prices. Instead of seeking peace, the U.S. is aggravating tensions, risking a face-off with Russia that could spark a proxy war or even a global conflict. This game isn't about self-defense for the U.S., it's about expanding the power of NATO and enforcing the U.S.'s superpower status," said Starlene Rankin, co-chair of the Green Party of the United States.
