Although the corporate presidential primaries have wrapped up, the Green Party still has a contested primary, and CA Green Party members' votes this June could determine our presidential ticket.
Several leading contenders have made the news recently. Jill Stein was recently interviewed by Grist.org, where she discusses the last time she beat Mitt Romney in a debate. Roseanne Barr was recently endorsed by 2008 Green Party presidential nominee Cynthia McKinney and by the Green Party's Black Caucus.
We are organizing a presidential candidate forum during the upcoming state Green Party plenary in SF. It will tentatively be held on the evening of May 12, and Jill Stein, Roseanne Barr and Kent Mesplay are all confirmed to attend.
Please join fellow SF Greens in supporting the signature drive to get a truly grassroots-driven initiative on the state ballot to label genetically engineered foods (GMOs).

The SF Green Party offers an alternative to $ politics and San Francisco's one-party state. We are of, by, and for the 99% who are demanding a voice in the decisions affecting our community and our planet. We support Green policies on the environment and also social justice, universal health care, a living wage, and an end to our unnecessary wars.
The Democrats and President Obama promised change, and gave us small change, along with megabucks to the banksters and the military industrial complex. For real change, support the Green Party!

And of course, the presidential campaign is in full swing. While the corporate media have been focusing on Santorum and other candidates of the 1%, little attention has been given to Green Party candidates such as Jill Stein. Partisan Democrat bloggers are gearing up to spend the year hyping Obama and attacking those who discuss alternative strategies. As usual, Glenn Greenwald has good coverage of this, although he mentions the strategy of building 3rd parties only in passing.
Peaceful "Occupy" protests around the country are being violently supressed, mostly by Democratic Party mayors like Ed Lee. LA Green Party member Patrick Meighan writes about his recent arrest on his blog.
