Economy, Labor & Relocalization

  • Economic enterprises should be an integrated part of local communities, organizing local cycles of production, consumption, and recycling.

  • Surplus state- and municipally-owned land declared should be used for affordable housing, local agriculture, public open space, or enhanced community sustainability.

  • We oppose privatization of government responsibilities and assets.

  • Create community-based green jobs in renewable energy, energy efficiency, sustainable agriculture, public transportation,  recycling, etc.

  • Preserve small-scale agriculture, and expand sustainable community-based and urban food production.

    The principles are good ones — but there need to be down-to-the-ground surveys of community needs. The deterioration of public facilities — like schools, for instance — should be of concern to us — and the remedy is certainly job-creating.

    I think that opposition to fast tracking new international trade deals should be a prominent addition to this program.
