As “the Continent” braces itself for a heat wave expected to be worse than the 2003 one which killed 20,000 Europeans, the headlines of last May showed alarm in varying degrees, from the European press to the titans of the New York Times and Washington Post. The elections for the 751 seats in the European Parliament had just marked disturbing gains for both European Green parties and the anti-immigrant nationalist parties identified with the Far Right. American Greens were delighted:
The Green Party of Florida supports the Embassy Protection Collective, Code Pink and prominent Greens such as Kevin Zeese and Margaret Flowers as they protect the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington, DC from a violent mob of opposition operatives. We demand that the Secret Service and local police do their jobs and protect the safety of the Embassy and the American citizens within.
Sometimes you just gotta find out what’s happening by reading your enemies. Like Politico, for instance. A straight-out Wall Street/Beltway “rag.” One of the many dilemmas the so-called Ruling Class faces is that, while lying to the American people is the first and last thing they do before going to bed each night, they know there are dangers in how much they can afford to lie to themselves. So the 01/28/2019 Politico, “Wall Street freaks out about 2020,” gives us a window on the pressures that the progressive forces in the U.S. are exerting on the current political scene.
“Top Wall Street executives would love to be rid of President Donald Trump. But they are getting panicked about the prospect of an ultraliberal Democratic nominee bent on raising taxes and slapping regulations on their firms. The result is a kind of nervous paralysis of executives pining for a centrist nominee like Michael Bloomberg while realizing such an outcome is unlikely from a party veering sharply to the left.”

As expected, some liberals and supposed anarchists are bringing up Maduro’s problems. Not sure how that justifies US intervention and war. Obviously, these people either do not know or deny how the US via the CIA and other ways has intervened globally and wrecked havoc. Sometimes Liberals and so called Anarchists, probably trust fund babies, are useful idiots for Capitalism and Imperialism. So let the accusations reactionary voices respond.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
“I stand in solidarity with the people of Venezuela!” says Robin Harris, co-chair of the Green Party of Florida, in response to the U.S. government’s latest maneuvers to depose the democratically elected President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, and bring in a right-wing regime that would hand over that country’s mineral wealth to the powerful oligarchs that are still a dangerous force in that country under siege.
“The Green Party of Florida rallies strongly against imperialism, capitalism and the fascist tactics that the U.S and Juan Guaidó, head of the U.S.-backed opposition, have wielded against this country,” Harris continues. “We also denounce Donald Trump’s affirmation of Juan Guaidó as president. It violates all democratic process and is a total violation of human rights.”
Years of sabotage and economic warfare.
Harris is joined by Jill Stein, the Green Party’s presidential candidate in 2012 and 2016, and her 2016 running mate Ajamu Baraka, head of the Black Alliance for Peace.
From Green Party of Florida Co-Chair Robin Harris:
Adam Peck, editor of ThinkProgress, obviously doesn’t accept that the duopoly system has gone into self-destruct mode, nor that the Democratic Party has abandoned all pretense at being a force for progress. Instead he blames its woes on Jill Stein and the Green Party. His ThinkProgress article of December 22 begins:
“The extent of Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election is well-documented and yet still not fully understood. Russian agents were responsible for stealing and releasing emails from the Democratic National Committee. Russia used Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms to spread disinformation and sow discord among the American public. This was done to benefit then-candidate Donald Trump.”
WASHINGTON, DC, November 3, 2018 — It was a chilly autumn afternoon in Washington, DC as my mother Maggie Gouldin and I wandered to Malcom X Park for the Black Is Back Coalition’s annual march to the White House. As colorful fall leaves crunched beneath our shoes, I saw an African flag — the Red, Black and Green waving triumphantly in the distance and I knew we had found our destination. The chill in the air didn’t dampen the red hot revolutionary spirit of that crowd as they gathered to demand nothing less than the total liberation of Black people and all the colonized people of the world.
I first ran this piece on November 11, 2015. I will keep running it until there is no need to run it ever again.
At the front, there was no celebration …
From the account of Colonel Thomas Gowenlock, an American intelligence officer on the front line that November morning:
“All over the world on November 11, 1918, people were celebrating, dancing in the streets, drinking champagne, hailing the armistice that meant the end of the war. But at the front there was no celebration. Many soldiers believed the Armistice only a temporary measure and that the war would soon go on. As night came, the quietness, unearthly in its penetration, began to eat into their souls.

Green Party of Florida calls for a Peace Treaty Process on the Korean Peninsula
August 24, 2017
The Green Party of Florida joins the United States and South Korean Green Parties in calling for a political and diplomatic solution to the Korean War instead of further militarization of the situation. Green Parties across the world have called for global nuclear disarmament and a transfer of military funding to humanitarian programs including the fight against climate change.
Further escalation of military tensions on the Korean Peninsula does nothing to honor the sacrifice of the more than 35,000 United States service members who have already given their lives, or the more than 100,000 service members wounded in action in the Korean War. The Green Party of Florida remembers the over three million global citizens whose lives have already been ended by this conflict. The Green Party of Florida acknowledges the plight of the citizens of North Korea, who remain among the world’s poorest and most internationally isolated.
The Green Party of Florida demands that the United States government exhaust all diplomatic and political solutions to the Korean War before threating a return to open and active hostilities. The Green Party of Florida supports a suspension of U. S. and South Korean joint military exercises on the Korean Peninsula that serve only to make North Korea feel threatened and do not advance the cause of peace. The Green Party of Florida supports a return to the United Nations Security Council plus China sponsored Peace Treaty Process with the goals of the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and a Peace Treaty which ends the Korean War and provides both North and South Korea with a peaceful road map to future success and prosperity.
