Call for Global Green Solidarity in Opposition to the War.

by Green Party of the United States Thursday, Jan. 31, 2002 at 8:29 AM

In recognition of the multiple violations of international law in the ongoing illegal war in Afghanistan and of the ever-louder drumbeat for the expansion of war to the peoples of other nations, the Green Party of the United States call for international solidarity to oppose this so-called war on terrorism.

Call for Global Green Solidarity in Opposition to the War.

Statement from the Green Party of the United States, Coordinating Committee

The Green Party of the United States stands ready to strengthen global Green solidarity on a basis of our common commitment to the Four Pillars of Non-Violence, Grassroots Democracy, Ecology, and Social Justice.

In recognition of the multiple violations of international law in the ongoing illegal war in Afghanistan and of the ever-louder drumbeat for the expansion of war to the peoples of other nations, the Green Party of the United States Coordinating Committee states the following:

We affirm our determined opposition to the continuing military strikes against the people of Afghanistan, who have already suffered the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians, ostensibly in pursuit of a few or one. These actions have been conducted based on hidden evidence, perpetrating gross violations of civil and human rights in nations around the globe, in the very name of protecting those rights.

We echo the call of the Green Party of Japan for Greens around the world to unite in efforts to end the war and to oppose any expansion to other nations. The war against terrorism has already spread to many western nations as government officials attack our civil liberties and undermine democracy.

Greens here are outraged by the growth of police, military, and corporate power in the United States and request the solidarity of international Greens in supporting North American movements for democracy and peace in this current crisis.

We have admired the historic commitment of German civil society to a demilitarized foreign policy, and we greatly respect the contributions of our partners in the BNDNIS 90/DIE GRNEN (German Green Party) to the cause of peace. We are thus concerned by recent German coalition-government actions in support of the U.S.-led war, and by the involvement of our partner Greens in the prosecution of the war. The opposition of BNDNIS 90/DIE GRNEN to the expansion of the war to other nations is noted and appreciated, yet the position of the German Green Party of "Critical Solidarity" with the military strikes in Afghanistan led by the Bush Administration contradicts the position of the Green Party of the United States Coordinating Committee. We ask the BNDNIS 90/DIE GRNEN for dialogue and cooperation in developing an anti-war solidarity with U.S. Greens and Greens across the globe.

As a partner of the European Federation of Green Parties (EFGP) we support the efforts of most European Greens in opposing American and European military actions in Afghanistan. We have confidence that all member parties of the EFGP can fully unite in opposing individual military deployments in their respective countries.

For our part, the Coordinating Committee of the Green Party of the United States has made our opposition to the
current U.S. military strikes clear in the recent statement "Seeking Justice for Acts of Terrorism."

We are ready to engage in global collective actions with Greens and others in the pursuit of a peaceful resolution to the current crisis.
