Party announces Annual State Convention in Atlanta Sept. 19, 2009

The Georgia Green Party Annual Convention will take place on Saturday, September 19, 2009, between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at the Spring4th Center, 728 Spring Street, Atlanta, GA 30308. All interested Party members and Georgians are encouraged to attend. Party business at this convention will include strategic assessment and planning as well as the election of state Party leadership and consideration of proposed changes to the Platform and Bylaws. At this time, the Party does not currently anticipate considering at this meeting the nomination of any candidates to public office in 2009 elections. Additional information will be posted here about: parking and directions, the meeting agenda, and keynote speaker. Important - click either the headline above this article or the "Read More" link below, to visit a page with more details!

This Annual Convention will begin by assembling attendees into "caucuses" by county of residence. The Convention organizers will be onsite around 9:00 a.m., and attendees are encouraged to arrive before 10:00 a.m., so that county caucuses can meet promptly. Each county caucus will meet briefly and select its voting delegates to the convention, from among those persons present. All delegates will be documented (or "credentialed"), and then the Convention will be called to order and will evaluate the organizers' proposed agenda for the day.

Elections will include the state committee (called the coordinating council) for the 2009-2011 term and to fill vacancies for the 2008-2010 term. Successful candidates for the coordinating council will begin terms immediately. Interested persons are encouraged both 1) to contact any of the officers listed on the "contacts" page of this website (see link, top left), and also 2) to read the Bylaws and the "Policy on Elected Servants of the Party" which are available in the "governing documents" section of this website (see link, top left).

Besides watching this space, potential volunteers and folks with questions may email ggp@greens.org OR call Denice at 706-364-7810.

Three Atlanta area Events Planned with Hip Hop Activist Rosa Clemente, 2008 Green Party Vice Presidential Nominee

We extend our apologies to those who had planned to join us on Wednesday, November 12th at 8:30 PM, for "An evening with Hip Hop Activist Rosa Clemente". Dues to scheduling conflicts, we are having to cancel this event.

McKinney, Clemente are Official Georgia Write-In Candidates

In response to questions raised by "early voters" in Georgia, the Party heartily encourages Georgians to vote for Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente, the Green Party's candidates for US President and Vice President. The Georgia Green Party has filed appropriate and timely paperwork with the Georgia Secretary of State's Election Division, registering the McKinney/Clemente ticket as official write-in candidates. Although the Party did not collect enough ballot access signatures to list McKinney/Clemente as a "visible" choice on Georgia's ballot, please be assured that writing in "Cynthia McKinney" (spelled exactly in that way, although Georgia's voting machines use all capital letters) for US President will in no way invalidate your ballot in the eyes of the law.

*Update* 6Nov08: According to the GA-SoS's "Election Center 2008" (http://www.sos.georgia.gov/elections/election_results/2008_1104/001.htm), an exact count of write-in votes for McKinney/Clemente is not yet available. The website states, "Results for qualified write-in candidates will only be available upon certification of the election." Certification is "a process that will not be completed until the week of November 10."

As Cynthia and Rosa often said on the campaign trail this year, "the Greens are not the alternative, we are the imperative." Now more than ever, don't just vote against your fears: vote with your consciousness, per your conscience, and for the fullness of justice & peace in our global community. Vote Green!

Greens Must Become More Aggressive About Our Party

Greens Must Become More Aggressive About Our Party

This moment in history provides a most opportune time for Greens to define the differences between our party and the Democratic and Republican Party, most specifically, the Democratic Party. It passes as the party of liberals and the left, when in fact it is the party of centrists. The American left is used by democrats, then discarded and ignored when it comes to policy making and presidential elections, as we can easily see in this current election.
