CORRECTION of erroneous information in press

reports on the detention of a Green at Maine


WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Green Party organizers are

attempting to confirm a report from sources in

Maine that a Green was detained by officials at

Bangor International Airport because of her

political affiliation.

Greens support measures to keep air traffic safe

during the current crisis, as long as

constitutional rights are not violated and people

who engage in nonviolent political dissent are

not targeted. Numerous Green Party organizers

and activists have flown over the past weeks

without incident, and they have complied in every

way with airport security measures.

PLEASE NOTE: Recent press reports on the incident

contained incorrect information about the

affiliation of the Green Party member, stating

that Nancy Oden is a "coordinating committee

member" of the Green Party of the United States.

Ms. Oden is not a member of the party's

Coordinating Committee (which consists of

delegates from affiliated states), but of a

different organization.

The Green Party of the United States is the only

Green political organization organized nationally

as a party, in which at least 31 states are

represented (with other states' memberships

pending). It organized the Green National

Convention in Denver in June, 2000, at which

Ralph Nader was nominated to run for President,

and is recognized among Green Parties around the


The Green Party of the United States has filed

papers with the Federal Election Commission for

recognition as a national party with national

committee status, and expects an announcement of

the FEC's decision within the next few weeks.

Media inquiries about national policies and

activities of the Green Party should be directed

solely to the Green Party of the United States,

through its media representatives as listed in

the heading above. To contact state Green

Parties, visit the Green Party of the United

States web site http://gpus.org> and follow the

links to the state parties and their contacts and

web sites.
