I’m quoted in Robert Morris’ front-page story for the Gambit, “Seeking a third: Louisiana’s Libertarian and Green parties.” Give it a look, and if you’re interested in helping to build an electoral expression of the movements for justice, ecology, democracy and peace, then please join us for the next Green Party of New Orleans meeting.

Over the past couple weeks, volunteers (including yours truly) have attempted to call every registered Green in the state of Lousiana, just to let people know that we’re organizing this convention on January 25. Our 2012 presidential candidate Jill Stein will be there. Don’t let the slick graphics fool you: This is a grassroots, seat-of-the-pants […]

Four years ago I was at the national convention of the Green Party. This time around, I was barely aware of it before it was over. Preoccupied I guess. But Cynthia McKinney just got nominated as the Green presidential candidate, and she gives a great acceptance speech. Via C-SPAN and YouTube.

He’s the Green candidate, running against an independent and a Democrat on December 4th. I’d say the party was a success on several counts. We had more guests than we expected. All the […]

I was impressed with Hester; her persona on her television show is clearly an act designed to popularize her agenda. When she spoke today, she seemed eminently […]

Awrite, I got a laptop and projector set up in the room, put signs up around the building. Now it’s 9am, starting time for the convention, and there’s no one here. Except me. Seems like there’s only three or four people in this big old building. It’s kind of spooky. Maybe people took note of […]

The Green Party of Louisiana‘s annual state convention begins in a couple hours. I’ve secured a room at Xavier for the event, which was something of an ordeal in itself. I’ll confess I’m a bit nervous. For one thing, I haven’t heard much recently from the actual organizer of the event; I think Lee may […]
