Greens recognize the need for self-defense and the defense of others who are in helpless situations, but oppose war for economic gain, prisons for profit, and a militarized police force at home. We advocate for de-escalation and non-violent methods to promote lasting personal, community, and global peace.
We are part of nature, not separate from nature. Future generations will benefit if we practice agriculture that replenishes the soil, transition to an energy-efficient economy, and live with respect for natural systems. Let us be wise in our decisions today to preserve the integrity of our world for future generations. Water is Life.
Greens hold public representatives at every level of government fully accountable to the people who elect them. Greens support political entities which expand the process of participatory democracy by directly including citizens in building beneficial and relevant public policy.
We must consciously confront in ourselves, our organizations, and society at large, barriers such as racism, class oppression, sexism, homophobia, ageism, and ableism, which act to deny fair treatment and equal justice under the law.
Ecosocialism is a vision of a transformed society in harmony with nature and the development of practices that can attain it. It is directed toward alternatives to all socially and ecologically destructive systems, such as patriarchy, racism, homophobia, and the fossil fuel-based economy.
