Did you know that there are now over 100 nations with a Green presence?
Why Vote Green?
Green politics is the electoral expression of the broad movement for the “greening of society,” which is the challenge of our times.
Climate change, soil and aquifer depletion, deforestation, and the other ecological crises we face show that our civilizations path is unsustainable and we need to find new ways forward.
Our current society has many aspects that are not only ecologically ruinous but also socially unjust. Corporate dominance, militarism, unbridled growth, hyper-exploitation of resources, globalization, and extreme
concentrations of wealth and power cause our quality of life to suffer, as well as that of other Beings on the planet
To reverse these troubling trends and move toward a healthier and better-balanced social reality, a Green society would be guided by alternative values, such as ecology, community, democracy, equality, justice, and peace. We believe that a brighter future awaits us if we can make this transition. It will take some time, but as each succeeding generation moves, however incrementally. toward more sustainable ways of life, our ultimate goals — to “save the planet” and foster social sanity — can be realized.
Voting Green is just one step in the movement for a new society, but an important one. Government policies can either facilitate the needed transition or hinder it. Therefore, getting Greens into positions of influence and authority, advocating for an explicit program for social change, is a significant and necessary achievement.
The movement for Green politics is growing worldwide – there are Green parties now in almost 100 countries. This gives us reason for hope for our collective future. You can help keep the Green wave moving by supporting my campaign and voting for Henry Lawrence, November 2014.
