Our fellow greens in Hernando engaging folks at the farmers market. It was quite fun and got a lot of traffic. It was fun to join them and meet a quite engaged crowd. Here’s a quick pick we took.
We encourage greens to really look at what we are doing and even considering our organizational forms. If we don’t adapt, we render ourselves irrelevant. Chris Hedges offers some really practical advice to actually building a green movement. Running candidates alone is not a working strategy. Pinellas Greens make a lot of diverse contributions and you can see our thinking https://pinellasgreens.org/p/who-are-we.html and how we are taking a different course.
As always, Jello brings a good case on voting strategy. Vote Green and check out some of his spoken word and toons as well (hint: Dead Kennedys).
