Please help send Green-Rainbow delegates to Houston this August.

The Green-Rainbow Party aspires to incorporate viewpoints from fiscally diverse backgrounds into selecting the Green candidate for US president. That means helping cash-strapped people get to Houston, Texas, to this year’s Green Party of the US’s Presidential Nominating Convention. We hope to raise $2,500. We've raised about $400 so far. There are 10 Massachusetts Green-Rainbow delegates, five of whom have asked for assistance. We can afford to help them with your financial assistance. You can easily give via paypal or credit card at:

Please help send Green-Rainbow delegates to the Green Party of the US’s August 4th-7th Presidential Nominating Convention in Houston by donating to the participation fund before our May 31st deadline.

West Roxbury Pipeline

The Green-Rainbow Party stands arm in arm with the West Roxbury Pipeline protesters, the West Roxbury community, and those of other cities, neighborhoods and towns in Massachusetts that are fighting the construction of fracked gas pipelines.

"FERC finally denied the rehearing requests that were filed by last year’s April 2 deadline. As a result of the official denial, intervenors can appeal the denial in federal court." [see http://swrl.info/]

As part of its commitment to renewable energy and healthy communities, the party is fundamentally opposed to the two major gas pipeline expansion projects being proposed in Massachusetts: The Algonquin fracked gas pipeline being built by Spectra Energy and the "Tennessee Gas Pipeline Northeast Expansion Project" proposed by Kinder Morgan Energy Partners.

We urge both Federal regulators and local communities to take steps to stop the two pipeline expansion projects and to redirect our energy infrastructure investments into green and sustainable energy projects such as conservation, wind, geothermal, hydropower, and solar power.

Text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership

The text of the Tran-Pacific Partnership is out (from New Zealand.) One of the harmful affects that cause a great concern is that gas can be fracked in the US and sent to some country in free trade agreement [see how to export fracked gas].

Join the Green-Rainbow Party Revolution!

The time is now. Our voice is being heard.  60% of Americans nationwide say that we need a third party and only 25% say that a two-party system suits their needs. Crucial issues from income inequality, systematic racism and the urgent need to convert fully to renewable energy have been left out by the two parties. It is up to the Green--Rainbow Party to provide candidates to vote for that are willing to take on these real issues. Join us this Spring and this year!
