Georgia Green Party Qualifies Slate Anticipates Mounting Ballot Qualified Challenge in 2024 to Genocide, Corruption and Dereliction by Corporate Party Candidates

Georgia Green Party Qualifies Slate
Anticipates Mounting Ballot Qualified Challenge in 2024
to Genocide, Corruption and Dereliction by Corporate Party Candidates

Yesterday, the Georgia Green Party filed qualifying paperwork for its slate of Presidential Electors, a crucial step towards placing its Presidential nominee on the November ballot. After three decades of facing exclusionary ballot access laws, party officers are cautiously optimistic that  every Georgia voter in 2024 will see the Green slate on their ballots.

In previous years, Georgia Green Party candidates like Jeff Gates in 2000 and John Fortuin in 2020 qualified for the state-wide ballot in special elections, but without party labels, and with no opportunity to secure a ballot line for future elections.

The party faces one final filing deadline to document that the party and its nominee have qualified candidates for presidential elector in at least twenty other states or territories; however the hundred volunteer hours to compile that filing pales in comparison to the cost of mounting a 70,000 signature petition drive for statewide ballot access under the former rule.

The twenty-state rule was created by a reform to Georgia’s ballot access rules signed by the Governor this Spring.  It applies to only . . .

Georgia Green Party Sends Condolences; Urges End to the Militarism

Georgia Green Party Sends Condolences
Urges End to the Militarism Which Will Only Produce More Death

On behalf of members, supporters and Green voters across the state, the officers of the Georgia Green Party extend condolences to the families of Sgt. William Jerome Rivers, 46, of Carrollton; Spc. Kennedy Ladon Sanders, 24, of Waycross; and Spc. Breonna Alexsondria Moffett, 23, of Savannah.  

. . .

The Party calls on the Biden Administration to end its support for the Israeli war against Palestinians, its own war on Yemen, to withdraw naval and ground forces from the Red Sea and Eastern Mediterranean Sea, and to bring home the roughly fifty thousand US troops deployed throughout the region, half of those deployed since October 7th. It should also renounce the goal of regime change, whether it be in Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, or any other state, and renounce covert operations and population-targeting sanctions as policy tools. Hostilities produce retaliation. Peace produces peace.

“Politicians and pundits who have sought to expand USA militarism in the region are exploiting the tragedy which befell our soldiers to pursue policies which will ensure greater loss of life,” said Ayman Fadel, treasurer of the Georgia Green Party. “Our Party calls instead for policies which will reduce the risk that Georgia families will again experience such loss.”

Party offers conditional support to HB-910, to protect minors from exposure to Pornography

Georgia Green Party Expresses Conditional Support for HB-910
to require age-verification for distribution of pornography to minors

On Thursday of this week, the officers of the Georgia Green Party sent a statement of conditional support for HB-910 (LC 56 0039), a bill intended to create a “civil remedy for damages against commercial entities that distribute material harmful to minors without performing age verification”.  The testimony was offered on the initiative of first term party co-chair Kristin Zebrowski of Gwinnett County, supported unanimously by the party officers.

The letter expresses the party’s “broad support for this bill’s intention to protect Georgia children from child abuse and our conditional support for the particulars of this bill”.  It goes on to express a handful of concerns for the specifics of this narrowly scoped legislative proposal.  The letter states “we would welcome an opportunity to consider legislation which seeks to remedy the harms to the so-called ‘performers’ who the evidence suggests are often victims of trafficking and exploitation, to the consumers (regardless of age), to their families and to the treatment and status of women and girls, generally.”  It goes on to also “urge the formation of a study committee to examine the (pornography) industry and to recommend for consideration in the coming legislative term appropriate comprehensive state regulation to protect the health and welfare of Georgia citizens” from that industry.
