GREEN PARTY CANDIDATES TO SPEAK OUT ON NATIONAL GREEN DAY OF ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE
The Green Party is holding coordinated local climate actions and a national online town hall meeting on Sunday, September 30 as part of a Green Party National Day of Action on Climate Change. The Greens intend to call attention to the climate emergency and the exclusion of that topic – and Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein – from the presidential debate to be held on Wednesday, October 3.
In New York City, Green Team 2012 will present a Green Party Candidates Speak Out on Sunday afternoon from 1 – 2pm at the Yippie Café and Museum, 9 Bleecker St. in Manhattan. Green candidates running for various offices in New York State will make presentations on different aspects of climate change, and offer Green solutions for solving this global crisis. Chris Williams, professor of physics and chemistry at Pace University, will be the featured speaker. He’s Vice President of the Union of Adjunct Faculty, and is also Chair of the science department at Packer Collegiate Institute. Williams is a long-time green activist and a member of the International Socialist Organization (ISO). He teaches courses in energy and the environment, physics, and chemistry, and is the author of “Ecology and Socialism: Solutions to Capitalist Ecological Crisis”, acclaimed as “a modern Marxist view of the eco-crisis”.
Scheduled to speak are Green Party candidates Colia Clark (U.S. Senate, NY), Joseph Diaferia (U. S Congress, CD16 Bronx-Westchester), Thomas Siracuse (NY State Senate, SD29 Manhattan-Bronx), Carl Lundgren (NY State Senate, SD34 Bronx-Westchester), Patrick Dwyer (NY State Assembly, AD46 Brooklyn) and Daniel Zuger (NY State Assembly, AD85 Bronx).
