Many Greens, working with other peace and anti-imperialist activists, helped to organize the week of actions and many other Greens participated. The Green Party showed itself to be the alternative to the two-winged War Party of the Democrats and Republicans, a party that stands for an end to militarism and imperialism.

This week the US was caught seeking to create violent chaos with imported mercenaries disguised as Venezuelan military, funded by assets seized from Venezuela as part of the US economic war. Telesur reports the government unveiled telephone conversations and other evidence between leaders of the right planning violence against the country that came from a Guaidó aide.

I write how the Democrats two marquee issues -- the Green New Deal and Medicare for All -- came from the Green Party. The article is a response to the New Republic thesis that the Green Party is no longer needed because the Democrats are supporting the Green New Deal and becoming socialist. This is a very false thesis.
Tuesday, February 5, 2019 Venezuela: US Pursuing Humanitarian Aid Path To War
The United States has been working with oligarchs in Venezuela to remove President Maduro since he came to office in 2013 after the death of Hugo Chavez and was re-elected that year. After he won re-election to another six-year term in 2018, the regime change planners sought new strategies to remove Maduro, including an assassination attempt last August.

On this holiday weekend, we reflect on the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. who urged us to "re-dedicate ourselves to the long and bitter, but beautiful, struggle for a new world." Protest to end NATO will be a step toward ending what King called "the deadly western arrogance that has poisoned the international atmosphere for so long." It is time for peace to "take precedence over the pursuit of war."
Tuesday, December 18, 2018 Israel: Ethnic Cleansing, Land Theft, Apartheid and Jim Crow
Israel knows that without the support of the United States, it could not continue these crimes against the Palestinian people. The lesson for US activists: keep telling the truth about Israel's brutal occupation of Palestine. Israel could be forced to make significant changes that recognize the human rights and self-determination of Palestinians.

Throughout this century, even though the climate science was clear, presidential leadership has escalated the dependence on oil and gas, built infrastructure for pipelines and compressor stations, encouraged fracking in the US and around the world and prevented a global response to reducing carbon gas emissions.

The Global #RiseForClimate actions are just one example of many that the climate justice movement is building the power needed to transform the economy and put in place policies to confront climate change. The ingredients exist for the climate justice movement to rapidly succeed. A challenge is not knowing how much time we have.

This week, the Trump military parade, planned for November 10, was canceled for 2018. In February, a coalition of groups went public, announcing we would organize to stop the military parade and, if it went forward, to mobilize more people at the parade calling for peace and an end to war than supporting militarism. The coalition called for "ending the wars at home and abroad."
Monday, August 13, 2018 Our Opponents' Actions Show We're Winning
Transformation is on the horizon if we remain clear in our vision for economic, racial and environmental justice, pull people to the movement from the power structure and undermine the tactics of those trying to co-opt, mislead and divide. Together, we can create transformational change. We are closer than we realize.
Tuesday, July 3, 2018 Nationwide Protests: Pro-Immigrant Or Anti-Trump?
It is time to end the failed policies of abusive immigration policy, militarized law enforcement and a militarized border and build a positive approach to immigration that protects human rights and builds the economy from the foundation up by using the best of each person who comes to the United States or who already live here.

The threats to Julian Assange are occurring when dissent is under attack, particularly media dissent; the FBI has a task force to monitor social media. The attack on net neutrality, Google using algorithms to prevent searches for alternative media and Facebook controlling what people see are all part of the attack on the democratized media...

Marx's vision of socialism had nothing in common with one-party dictatorships like the former Soviet Union that declared themselves to be socialist or communist. For Marx, the key question was not whether the economy was controlled by the state, but which class controlled the state. A society can only be socialist if power is in the hands of workers themselves.

The next decade has the potential to be transformative. To make it so, we must not only develop national consensus that issues are being mishandled, that policies need to change and that we can change them, but we must also educate ourselves on issues and how to be effective. We have the power to create the change we want to see.
Friday, March 30, 2018 Defendants Acquitted Based On Climate Necessity Defense
The result in this case is an important part of building power to fight the fossil fuel industry. Climate justice advocates told their story not just in court but from the way they created their protest, which included "Digging Mass Graves" to highlight the dangers of climate change. Climate change will kill millions of people and cause immense environmental damage.

Just as Freedom Caucus Tea Party representatives hold power in the Republican Party, the military-intelligence officials will become the powerhouse for Democrats. This takeover will make the Democrats even more militarist at a dangerous time when threats of war are on the rise and the country needs an opposition party that says "no" to war.
