We Do Not Consent!



This government is premised upon the concept of “consent of the governed.”

We do not consent.

The Green Party did not wilt before the DNC, Hillary Clinton, or the corporate media.

The Green Party will not wilt before a Trump presidency, either. We call for sustained and organized resistance to president-elect Donald Trump and the rise of right-wing extremism in the United States. 

We will not bow down or fall in line to the corporate leadership of the Democratic or Republican parties, with their endless wars for oil, disastrous trade deals, and support for Wall Street that crashed the economy and devastated the lives of millions.

We do not consent.

We will stand for people, peace and planet, OVER profits.

You supported us, and we are grateful. Over 1.2 million strong for the Stein/Baraka presidential ticket. And because of you, we won many state victories - not the least of which was the passage of ranked-choice voting in Maine and Benton County, Oregon as well as marijuana legalization in 6 states and calls to abolish corporate constitutional rights in CA and WA.

You even helped us retain ballot lines for 2018 in: CA, CO, CT, DE, DC, FL, HI, LA, ME, MD, MI, MS, MO, NM, NY, OR, PA, SC, VT, WV, and WI.

You stood for us and with us. And we stood with you. And now … we must ALL STAND TOGETHER.

we_do_not_consent.jpgNow is not the time to lose heart...now is the time to take action. Now is the time to seek out your local Green Party, to join forces, to lend a hand. We must educate, agitate and organize.

Because historic change movements always begin with the actions of a few. As Margaret Mead said:

“Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world. For, indeed, that's all who ever have.”

And to build the party we want, to change this nation and shift the political conversation forever, we must build social movements in the streets AND an electoral arm at the ballot box.

The Green Party aspires to be that electoral arm - the voice of our movements. We are prepared to be an instrument for power to the people. We represent the new politics of integrity that must rise up and replace this rotten two-party system.

We are the ones we have been waiting for.

We will continue to build this movement long after the election. How?

We are opening campaign schools to help ordinary people learn how to run as Greens in local races and win. We are supporting state and local candidates as well, with more infrastructure and more volunteers.

We will continue to build this movement and this party. Will you stand with us and help this campaign end strong, and not in debt?

We call for a peaceful, non-violent revolution by those who were shut out of this terrible election by the leadership of both corporate political parties.

We do not consent to Donald Trump and right wing rule. We do not consent to the establishment and to corporate rule. We do not consent to Empire. Be a part of our movement and be a part of history.

We have much work to do. Let’s do it. Together.
