Green Party of the United States Biography

Position:
Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“We would consider support for a U.S. foreign policy that promotes serious reconsideration of the creation of one secular, democratic state for Palestinians and Israelis on the land between the Mediterranean Sea and the River Jordan as the national home of both peoples, with Jerusalem as its capital. We encourage a new U.S. diplomatic initiative to begin the long process of negotiation, laying the groundwork for such a single-state constitution.”

Description:

“The Green Party of the United States is a federation of state Green Parties…The Federal Elections Commission recognizes the Green Party of the United States as the official Green Party National Committee…

The Green Party of the United States was formed in 2001 as a reincarnation of the older Association of State Green Parties (1996-2001)…

We are grassroots activists, environmentalists, advocates for social justice, nonviolent resisters and regular citizens who’ve had enough of corporate-dominated politics.”
