I couldn’t have said it any better than this:

An animated gif of a video clip of UAW President Shawn Fain addressing his union members and the public at the start of their historic Stand Up Strike, in which he says: “Everything working people have ever won, we’ve won together.”

When analysts told CNN’s Jake Tapper that the UAW’s demands were going to “wreck the economy,” UAW president Shawn Fain fired back:

“In the last decade, they made a quarter of a trillion dollars in profits. It’s not that we’re going to wreck the economy. We’re going to wreck their economy, the one that works for the billionaire class. It doesn’t work for the working class.”

The best part is the innovative nature of this strike. UAW just rolled out a whole new method of organizing that’s designed to thwart strikebreakers and block union-busting.

Rather than a mass walk-off from the job, UAW is mobilizing different locals at random, so the bosses never know when or where the strike is coming.

And judging by the public’s response to the UAW strike (which has INCREASED in the last week), we’re headed straight from a Hot Labor Summer to a Burn It All Fall?✊

Workers all across the country are demanding their fair share, because this upside down world where CEOs take home 400x the wages of workers on the line cannot continue. It is GOING to collapse, or we’re going to have to tear it down and build something sustainable.

As a lifelong activist and organizer, and a former elected union rep, I stand in solidarity with the UAW, as well as the ongoing WGA, SAG-AFTRA strike – and the impending nurses’ strike right here in my district at Providence Everett. I will stay by their side until they receive a fair contract, as every worker SHOULD.

But my opponent in this race, a former lobbyist who’s held this seat for 22 years, has repeatedly betrayed striking workers in favor of his wealthy corporate donors.

WA-02 deserves a representative who will always have labor’s back. Can you donate $25, $50, or $100 today to help me win this seat in 2024?

As a public school teacher, I proudly served as an elected union leader at the local and state level for years. In my first year in the Representative Assembly of the Washington Education Association, I wrote, submitted, and passed a resolution rejecting the idea that corporations are people.

While I’m no longer a teacher or a member of the WEA, I’ve never stopped showing up for workers.

While Rick Larsen was dodging questions about a certain coffee shop chain, I joined a group of labor organizers touring Starbucks locations in WA-02 to let workers know – if they decided to unionize – their community had their back. Weeks later, they did.

A photo of Jason Call and several labor organizers holding pro-union signs from Starbucks Worker Solidarity outside of a Starbucks store in Washington’s 2nd congressional district.
Solidarity is a verb, and I’ve got years of receipts.When I win, I’ve pledged to donate 30% of my post-tax congressional salary to strike funds, and every labor organizer I’ve worked with in Washington State knows they can take that promise to the bank.

You can’t stand with labor when you’re on the payroll of the bosses. That’s why I’ve never taken a dime from corporate PACs or lobbyists – and I never will.

I’ve run for this seat before, and we came very close to getting into the general election both times.

With Washington’s Top Two, non-partisan primary, this VERY progressive district is the Green Party’s BEST chance to get a member elected to Congress in 2024.

But only if we build the kind of solidarity we’re seeing behind all the strikes happening across this country right now.

Like Shawn said, “Everything working people have ever won, we’ve won together.”

Solidarity is the only way. And I hope you’ll join me in the fight.

The Green Party Stands Unequivocally Against Anti-Semitism

*** For immediate release ***

Olympia, WA – September 11, 2023

_____________________________________________________

The Green Party of Washington Coordinating Council was shocked by the actions of Former Democrat U.S. House Member from 1993 to 2003, and 2008 Green Party presidential nominee Cynthia McKinney. McKinney on the morning of September 11, promoted an event hosted in part by white supremacist David Duke which characterized Jewish people as a “common enemy.”

In no uncertain terms, the Green Party of Washington condemns this event, its organizers, its promoters, and the vile hatred at its core.

The Green Party of Washington, as a full member of the Green Party of the United States federation, holds respect for diversity and anti-racism as a core belief. Cynthia McKinney has no current relationship or affiliation with the Green Party of Washington or the Green Party of the United States, and has not for years. We condemn her promotion of this event and call on all parties and organizations, including the Democratic Party with whom she served for a decade as a US House Representative to do the same.

GreenLine for September 6, 2023


The 2023 Green Party Annual National Meeting (ANM) was held from August 3-6th! We were delighted to gather virtually to provide an opportunity for all to participate this year, while we continue efforts to meet again in person in 2024 for our Presidential Nominating Convention.

Watch the videos online today!


My name is Jason Call and I’m running for Congress with the Green Party in Washington State in District 2.

“I want to be clear. There are only two people who can possibly win this seat in November of 2024 – and it’s either going to be me, or Rick Larsen.”

No Republican has any shot of winning in the 2nd district. This community cares deeply about climate action, social justice, and labor rights – all things the Republican Party is inherently opposed to. Since 1965, this district has only been represented by a Republican for 6 years.

Our progressive, working-class community deserves a representative who will fight for working families and a livable future.

Green Party to join March to End Fossil Fuels in NYC on Sunday Sept. 17 in conjunction with UN Meeting on Climate plus Webinar on Monday Sept. 11

Green Party to join March to End Fossil Fuels in NYC on Sunday, Sept. 17 in conjunction with UN Meeting on Climate. The Green Party of the United States (GPUS) has endorsed the September 17th March to End Fossil Fuels in New York City. Green Party groups mobilizing for the event also include the EcoAction Committee of both GPUS and the Green Party of New York; and Green Parties of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

The march and rally are being held in conjunction with the United Nations’ September 20 Climate Ambition Summit 2023 to accelerate action by governments, business, finance, local authorities, and civil society. The Summit represents a critical political milestone for demonstrating that there is a collective global will to accelerate the pace and scale of a just transition to a more equitable renewable-energy-based, climate-resilient global economy.

Individuals marching with the Green Party can RSVP HERE.

Organizers expect the largest climate mobilization since the pandemic, calling for presidential action to phase out fossil fuels and address environmental injustice.

The March and rally are calling on President Biden to:

1. Stop all federal approvals for new fossil fuel projects and repeal permits for climate bombs like the Willow Project and Alaska LNG.

2. Phase out fossil fuel DRILLING on our public lands and waters.

3. Declare a climate emergency to halt oil exports and investments in fossil fuel projects abroad, AND lead a just transition to clean, community energy.

The EcoAction Committee will hold a webinar on End Fossil Fuels on Monday, Sept 11 at 8 PM ET. RSVPs are needed.

Connecting the Dots: Maui’s Fires, Climate Change and Public Policy

The Green Party of the US is deeply saddened by the devastating wildfires that have ravaged Maui. We extend our condolences to our friends and the families of those who have lost loved ones, and we offer our support to those who have been displaced from their homes.

Climate change is one of several factors that contributed to these fires. The area in Maui has been in a drought for a number of years, and the fires were fanned by extremely high winds from a nearby hurricane. Climate scientists say that climate change provides additional energy to weather events, increasing their severity.

The burning of fossil fuels is releasing greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere, which are trapping heat and causing the planet to warm. The Green Party of the US and Hawai’i are committed to taking action to address climate change. We support policies such as investing in renewable energy, reducing deforestation, and improving energy efficiency.

Green Party Statement on Fukushima

Oppose Fukushima Water Release into the Pacific Ocean!

The Green Party of the United States and the Green Party of Hawai’i stand in solidarity with our fellow Greens in Japan and South Korea when calling for the end of the near-shore release of 1.33 million tons of contaminated water from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean. The Green Party of the United States and the Green Party of Hawai’i urge the Government of Japan to respect existing international treaties that ban the release of nuclear waste into the oceans. We also join the Green Party Korea and the Greens Japan in calling for the cancellation of ocean-releasing plans. For this, we call for a public review of methods of on-land storage such as ‘large tank storage’ and ‘mortar solidification treatment’.

The War at Home: Dissent and Repression Webinar

Sponsored by the Peace Action Committee – September 6, 2023 at 8:00 PM ET, 7:00 CT, 6:00 MT, 5:00 PM PT

Click Here to Pre-Register for the Webinar

All wars begin with lies, and the lies serve to conceal the real motives for war. Government motives for mass killing (war) include war machine profits, geopolitics, and plundering of resources. As the general population uncovers the real reasons for the war, government propaganda becomes less effective, which leads to growing dissent and repression of dissent.

Currently over 61% of people polled (according to CNN) no longer want weapons sent to continue the proxy war in Ukraine. The U.S. government has begun to use repressive measures against anti-war groups. In our webinar you will hear from dissenters and from those who have witnessed and experienced repression. It is in the interest of all of us to support dissenters and expose and support those who have been harmed by repressive measures. We welcome your participation in this webinar and your support of the right to dissent.
