SF Green Party Weekly News and Events


Dear Greens,

    Join us and other Bay Area Greens at a peace rally this Saturday!
It's the 20th anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq, and many
organizations are demanding an end to the constant state of war.
Greens are leading this movement: about 1 of 4 participants at last
month's SF peace rally were registered Green, and Greens from at least
five Bay Area counties attended.  Details and location of this
Saturday's rally are below.

    As the Democrats work tirelessly on bank bailouts and starting
World War 3, they've given up on any pretense of supporting
progressive policy.  Barry Hermanson wrote an article about how the CA
Democratic Party won't even discuss Universal healthcare legislation
in Sacramento this year:

    We also hope to see you all at our membership meeting next
Wednesday - details and agenda are below.


What:  Anti-war rally
Where:  24th and Mission BART Plaza, SF
When:  Saturday, March 18, noon

Join CODEPINK, ANSWER Coalition and Bay Area county Green Parties
in San Francisco to protest on the 20th anniversary of the
US invasion of Iraq.

The demonstrations will make connections between the human and
financial toll of US militarism at home and abroad.  Key demands
    * End the $100 Billion in arms shipments to Ukraine
    * End NATO
    * Stop the permanent war economy that funnels trillions of dollars
      away from jobs, education and health care
    * Negotiations now!  The people of the US are not interested in
      the possibility of nuclear war nor the Pentagon’s policy of
      "weakening Russia."
    * No to war with China!
