What We Believe
These are the "Four Pillars" that are the basis for the Green Party all around the world.
Ecological Wisdom - A healthy society cannot exist without a healthy environment---all things are interconnected and interdependent. Both nature and humanity are worthy of respect and freedom from exploitation.
Social Justice - Greens want to replace the worldwide system of poverty and injustice with a world free of all oppression based on class, gender, race, citizenship, age, or sexual orientation.
Grassroots Democracy - Greens believe in direct participation by all people in the environmental, political, and economic decisions that affect their lives. In practice, Greens make decisions by voluntary consensus whenever possible.
Nonviolence - Greens promote nonviolent methods to oppose practices and policies with which we disagree, and guide our actions toward lasting community and global peace.
