We recognize that the Earth sustains all life. Green ecology understands the common roots of abuse of nature and people.
Greens want to replace the system of poverty and injustice with a world free of oppression based on class, sex, race, age or sexual orientation.
The powerless suffer the most from environmental degradation. Greens believe in direct participation by all people in the decisions that affect their lives.
Greens reject violence as a method for settling disputes: it is shortsighted, morally wrong, and self-defeating.
A healthy measure of self reliance strengthens democracy and prevents distant power brokers from dominating a community.
Power must be restored to local communities within an overall framework of grassroots democracy and socially just values where all participate in decisions.
Green politics is inspired by feminist values. The ethics of cooperation must replace the values of domination and control over others.
Respect for Diversity
We honor the diversity of the Earth, and the cultural, sexual, and spiritual diversity of Earth’s people.
Personal and Global Responsibility
Greens demonstrate a commitment to justice and global sustainability through political solidarity and personal lifestyles based on sufficiency and living lightly on the Earth.
Like the Iroquois, Greens seek a society where the interests of the seventh generation are considered equal to the interests of the present.
