Statement from the Winona County Green Party at Today’s Standing Rock Solidarity Rally:

The Winona County Green Party stands in solidarity with the Water Protectors at Standing Rock, and we are honored that the Winona-Dakota Unity Alliance has given us the opportunity to speak today. Together, we give voice to the voiceless - the water and air that sustains us. We are here to defend the rights of nature - the rights of water and air to remain clean and pure.

We Stand with Standing Rock! We stand together in the wisdom of those who lived here long before us. We stand together for clean water, clean air, and a healthy environment. We stand together to protect the earth from corporations that would destroy it for short term profit. We stand together with our Native brothers and sisters against a government that is intimidating and incarcerating them for peacefully protecting our water. We thank you all for standing together in solidarity and peace! Mni Wiconi! Water is life!


We Fought Hard - How We Won, How We Fight Now

Once again, the winner of the popular vote for President of the United States has been defeated in an election.

The amount of post-election analysis already posted today is staggering, but this fact should not be forgotten. It's representative of deep problems with our democracy, both structurally and functionally.

The Green Party ran a principled campaign for President, opposing racism, sexism, Islamaphobia, and the entire “least worst” political culture – all important contributing factors in getting us to the political reality of today.

5 Ways a Minnesota Green Vote Wins No Matter What

Don’t waste your vote this election, #InvestYourVote.

Why should we allow the corporate parties to spoil our elections anymore? “Lesser evilism” has brought us everything we feared – erosion of our civil liberties and civil rights, mass deportations, ongoing wars and a massive refugee crisis, a meltdown of our climate and the crashing of our economy.

It’s time to stand up and say no more! And you can feel safer about your vote not helping someone you don’t want because we don’t live in a “swing state.”

Here are the 5 ways a Jill Stein vote in Minnesota wins no matter what.

Star Tribune: Third-party presidential candidates on Minnesota ballot

Stein already has campaigned in Minnesota and has plans to be back for a Twin Cities visit on Oct. 26. Brandon Long, chairman of the Minnesota Green Party, said the party is aiming its appeals at supporters of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Clinton’s runner-up in the Democratic presidential contest.

“Unless we demand more and better from our candidates, we’re not going to get it,” Long said. “Progressive third parties have pushed important things into larger progressive movements — the 40-hour workweek and Social Security, for starters.”


MPR: Fed up with campaign, some voters seek alternatives

Another ballot repeat is the Green Party's Jill Stein, who garnered less than one half of 1 percent of Minnesota's votes in 2012.

Minnesota Green Party Chairman Brandon Long is convinced she'll do much better this time. 

He expects Stein to attract votes from people who backed Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the nomination contest but haven't warmed up to Hillary Clinton as the Democratic candidate.

"Bernie Sanders was somebody that really ignited a lot of interest," Long said. "A lot of people who particularly were independent in the first place, he brought them into the [Democratic] Party. And then they're not really feeling appreciated or wanted, and so a lot of people are saying, 'Look, we need another option,' and Jill Stein and the Green Party is it."
