Lear has been asked by organizers to present on "Peace and Sustainability"
at the upcoming World Peace Forum taking place in Vancouver, Canada, June 23
through June 28, 2006. The World Peace Forum will be attended by government

Byron De Lear, candidate for Congress in California's 28th District of the

imperative that we apply our collective genius towards meeting the global
environmental and intercultural challenges facing humanity. Today, every
living system on our planet is in decline. One of things I will offer to
the World Peace Forum is the political 'solution-set' to this imminent
crisis: the 10 Key values of the Green Party."

has garnered support and endorsements from several well-respected
international humanitarians and activists. Alanna Hartzok, co-director of
the Earth Rights Institute, proclaimed, "Recent meetings with Green Party
elected officials in Australia renewed my hope that we can build a world
that works for everyone.
"The Green Party is so much more than a political party; it is a global
network of the best and the brightest of the emerging new leaders of the
planet. Byron De Lear is one of those leaders. He has my whole-hearted
support for the success of his campaign for Congress," Mr. Hartzok added.
Peter Camejo, California Green gubernatorial candidate, in his letter of
endorsement for De Lear, lauded the Ten Key value solution set. "As Green
Party candidates we are bound by 10 Key Values which serve to forward an
agenda that promotes and preserves the human rights and dignities of all the
people of our state, of our nation, and our world," said Mr. Camejo.
International renowned environmentalist Dr. David Suzuki, founder of the
David Suzuki Foundation and host of PBS The Nature of Things, added, "We
have the tyranny of a minority and no diversity. I congratulate you on
running for the Greens and hope you can raise important issues that will be
ignored by the major parties, and I hope you can even raise enough support
