Green Line: Take Action – No War with Iran!

Take Action – No War with Iran!
Action Alert, No War with Iran!
 
Recently the US Congress approved a $30 billion military aid package to Israel which, combined with the approved Lieberman-Kyl amendment to the Congressional military appropriations bill, has moved the US closer to war with Iran.

After failing to find WMD’s in Iraq, President Bush seems poised to repeat history and lead us into another illegal war. He has yet to produce hard evidence to the world community to support his claims that Iran is assisting Shiite militias in Iraq and plans to produce nuclear weapons for an attack on western nations.
 
The Green Party remains the only major national party committed to peace at home and abroad. Please join us by sending an automated letter to your Congresspersons.

.. NEW JERSEY On October 17, New Jersey Superior Court Judge Neil H. Shuster ordered that the state grant equal treatment to alternative political
parties. The ruling eliminates some of the structural advantages long
enjoyed by the Democratic and Republican Parties, and concedes that New
Jersey election law must treat alternative parties as official "political
parties" for the purposes of campaign finance, lobbying, and voter
registration. The lawsuit in the case was filed by the Green Party of New
Jersey, the New Jersey Constitution Party, and the New Jersey Libertarian
Party.  http://www.gpnj.org

Nader Sues Democratic National Committee for 2004 Dirty Tricks
 
On October 30, Ralph Nader, Peter Camejo, and six voters who wanted to vote
for Nader in 2004, filed a lawsuit against the Democratic National
Committee. The lawsuit, Nader v Democratic National Committee, was filed in
the District of Columbia Superior Court. The complaint is 70 pages long. It
details the national Democratic Party’s extensive support for challenges to
Nader’s ballot positions, in states in which elections officials had
accepted Nader’s petitions and placed him on the ballot.
 
The complaint goes into great detail, including a coordinated effort to
sabotage individual petition sheets in Oregon (anti-Nader activists were
instructed to sign a petition sheet in the space reserved for the
circulator, and then to line it out, which had the effect of ruining all the
signatures already on that sheet). The complaint also talks about harassment
of Nader circulators in Ohio and Oregon.
 
The complaint also deals with incidents in Pennsylvania, Arizona, Arkansas,
Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, New
Hampshire, New Mexico, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin. The lawsuit
asks for a jury trial, in a claim for monetary damages.
