Pinellas Green Party Officially Denounces Yellow Wristband Policy
December 3, 2016
St. Petersburg, FL – Whereas Pinellas County has more than 10,000 people experiencing some level of homelessness, the local Green Party (Pinellas Greens) finds it objectionable that the Society of St. Vincent de Paul South Pinellas and the City of St. Petersburg have chosen to add insult to economic injury by forcing people in need to wear yellow wristbands in order to receive services.
We plan to peacefully assemble on the steps of St. Petersburg’s City Hall on Thursday, December 8th at 4:30PM as a gesture of solidarity with our region’s homeless people.
While we do not wish to trivialize the atrocities the Jews endured, this act bears a terrible resemblance to how they were forced to wear the cloth patches bearing the Star of David during the Nazi regime. Please join us in opposition to this fascist development so that the guilty parties can quickly fix their error.
Pinellas Green Party Officially Endorses The “Shut It Down” Anti Dakota Access Pipeline Demonstration
December 3, 2016
St. Petersburg, FL – The Pinellas Greens have long given their support to the Water Protectors at Standing Rock. As an organization that maintains constant vigilance on how we treat the planet and its natural resources, we enthusiastically support the Shut It Down movement spearheaded by Tracy Penokie and call for a permanent ban on construction of pipelines of this nature.
We and other likeminded citizens of St. Pete plan to peacefully show our opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline by assembling at the intersection of 22nd Avenue North and 34th St. (US19) on Monday, December 5th at 3:45PM.
The first of the Ten Key Values of the Green Party is Ecological Wisdom. We do not think it is wise to potentially endanger our vital water supply. We hope this demonstration peacefully reminds our elected officials and neighbors how important it is that we get this right.
