Candidates for the 2024 Presidential Nomination of the Green Party of the United States

A week before our February 17th, 2024 Nominating Convention, we invited the six candidates recognized by the Presidential Campaign Support Committee “a video statement of five or ten minutes, addressed to Delegates to our state convention.”  We heard back from two campaigns.  To explore what is published for all six candidates, see the links included in the letter we sent a week or so ago to Green Party supporters in Georgia.

To prepare for our Presidential Preference Caucus, Georgia Greens are urged to learn more about our options at the links below.  These are the six candidates who have met, to one degree or another, the minimum thresholds for recognition by the Presidential Campaign Support Committee of the Green Party of the United States as candidates seeking seeking the Green Party’s Presidential nomination. In alphabetical order by last name, they are:

The ballot access coordinator for the Jill Stein campaign reached out to the party to discuss efforts to place Dr. Stein on the Georgia ballot in 2024.  He urged us to search the web for any number of video interviews which their candidate has given on a wide number of outlets.

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.

The Georgia Green Party urges Support for the Stop Cop City Initiative

Atlanta Referendum!

We — all of us — need your help to put the “Stop the Atlanta Safety Training Facility Public (aka Stop Cop City) referendum on the up-coming November 7 Atlanta ballot.

We need all registered Atlanta voters — including your friends, neighbors and even peeps that you don’t like — to sign the ballot-access petition before the August 14th deadline. If you are not registered to vote, please do so. You can sign the petition the next day. Then please put the Tuesday November 7th election day on your calendar and vote !

This referendum is more than militarization of much-needed green space, more than the execution-murder of a peaceful protester in a public DeKalb park, more than the heavy political hands of Atlanta’s mayor and Georgia’s governor and attorney general, more than behind-the-scenes power plays of Atlanta’s corporate businesses, more than the back-door politics of the Democratic and Republican Parties, more than the corrupt influence of the Atlanta Police Foundation, more than the pollution of South River and Intrenchment Creek, more than . . . .

This referendum is about our promised democracy, is about necessary over-sight and accountability of Atlanta’s decision-makers, is about making Atlanta’s governance listen to us, is about two public comment sessions (the first in September 2021 and the second just this last June 5th) where speakers were over-whelmingly against the proposed “Cop City.”

We are a political party that is always looking for good people to run for elective office, including for Atlanta City Council. Your help is needed, whether it’s collecting petition signatures, educating your neighbors, spreading the word on Social media, helping us build a campaign for law enforcement to be accountable to the people and civilian authorities, and perhaps running for office on these and other issues.

Georgia Green Party condemns corruption of Biden Administration and State Department to overturn the democratic will of the citizens of Pakistan




 

At its state committee meeting on April 17th, the Georgia Green Party “condemn(ed) as despicable, the actions of the Biden Administration to interfere in the democratically elected government of yet another sovereign nation. . . . (and) calls on Congress to investigate the corrupt practices of the Biden Administration and its State Department to overturn the democratic will of the citizens of Pakistan to form their own government and to pursue public policies in the best interests of the Pakistani people.”

Mr. Khan continues to enjoy widespread popular support and is now campaigning to expose the U.S. financed corruption which led to the no-confidence vote and restore to his coalition government.


In the midst of the Ramadan fast, Imran Khan, Member of Parliament recently ousted
as Prime Minister in a U.S. State Department financed coup, has drawn crowds of millions
at political rallies held after taraweeh prayers observed late at night during the Muslim fast.

Georgia Green Party endorses BLM Joint Statement on Ukraine

The state committee of the party has agreed to endorse the Black Liberation Movement Joint Statement on Ukraine.

US War Record -- 6m dead, no sanctions

Ms. Binta:

Ramadan Mubarak. I pray this finds you and your family doing well.

It is my privilege to report, that on a conference call of its state committee, held this evening, April 2nd, 2022, the Georgia Green Party was agreed, without objection, and with one member standing aside, to endorse the Black Liberation Movement Joint Statement on Ukraine. We do so with a single caveat that our existing platform gives us no authority to speak in support of ‘universal childcare’, but that otherwise the foreign and domestic policy aims advanced by this statement are well within the framework of the existing policy of the party. Further, the historical analysis of this paper is in keeping with our perspective on the U.S. imperial aggression driving this conflict with potential nuclear consequences.

Thank you for this initiative by the NBLM National Unity Initiative.

In your publicity, please identify our support as:

Georgia Green Party
Kweku Lumumba and David Josue, co-chairs

Please be sure to advise us of how we might support the promotion of this statement and the policy goals it outlines.

Yours sincerely,
— Hugh Esco, Secretary
Georgia Green Party
