Green President Candidate debate: San Francisco- video on website

Green Presidential Candidates debate in San Francisco – video on web site!
Arizona needs help with Ballot Access
 
Arizona is working toward ballot status and has until March 6th to turn in
20,449 good signatures. Petition gatherers have already collected
approximately 10,000 and need at least 16-18,000 more to provide a cushion
against contested signatures. Arizona has begun using professional signature
gatherers and needs help with funding to pay these professionals. National
Green Party has supported this process with donations requiring Arizona to
match the funds. You can donate to the Arizona Green Party by sending a
check to: P.O. Box 60173, Phoenix, AZ 85082-0173.
 
Richard Scott, one of the Coordinators of the Arizona drive says, "We can
make this goal but it will take cooperation and help from Greens around the
country to help raise the funds we need to get the job done. We have some
petition gatherers from out of state coming to help but that takes time and
coordination – guest gatherers must have a local with them when they
petition. Donations will help us more easily attain our goal. I project that
we can get this job completed for under $15,000 and we have approximately
half that now – so please help – send us a check now – we can do this."
 
Ballot drives are also underway in Utah – Feb 15 – 2000 signatures,
Hawai’i – Apr 3 – 663 signatures, North Carolina – May 16 – 69,734
signatures (in court – we’re hoping for a favorable ruling this week and
Texas – May 27 – 43,991 signatures. Green Line will be covering these and
all ballot access efforts as they develop. To find out how to support Green

Green Debate a Great Success!
 
On January 13th Green Party Presidential hopefuls Jared Ball, Jesse Johnson,
Kent Mesplay, Cynthia McKinney, Ralph Nader (undeclared candidate) and Kat
Swift took to the stage in a packed auditorium in San Francisco for the only
Presidential Debate that Mattered.
 
According to the Alameda Greens website: "It was a brilliant event! 800
attendees, nearly a full house, in one of the nicest venues in San
Francisco, the historic Herbst. All the candidates appeared at their best,
and were exceptional on stage. All great spokespersons, and fine examples of
the Green movement. Bay-Area Green Michael-David Sasson said: "One of the
people who went [to the Debate] and reported back to me, vowed to change her
registration back to Green, and to urge wayward Greens to come back and
recruit others to the GP. She and her friends are all people of color…
which I think is significant."
 
Candidates McKinney, Swift, Mesplay Johnson and Ball debated a wide range of
subjects, including tax policy, immigration, climate change, and the war in
Iraq. Ralph Nader spoke after the debate, focusing on the corrosive role of
corporate power in politics.
 
Peace Activist Cindy Sheehan and former Green Party candidate for Oakland
City Council and KPFA anchor Aimee Allison moderated the debate.
 
Pacifica Radio affiliate KPFA rebroadcast the debate and hosted a call in
show moderated by Allison, political analyst Larry Bensky, and former San
Francisco Board of Supervisors Chair Matt Gonzalez.
 
Many thanks to The Green Party of Alameda County, the San Francisco Green
Party and the National Delegates Committee of the Green Party of California
for organizing such a superb event!

many popular progressive reforms. The Green Party of the 21st century
continues the Populist’s fight for citizen empowerment and progressive
reforms at all levels today.
