Breaking News! Right here in Montana we must fight for our right to have a choice! Greetings Sisters and Brothers!
WE NEED YOUR HELP! PLEASE DONATE TO OUR LEGAL FUND!
The Montana Green Party is facing a legal challenge to our ballot access! We are incredibly saddened that the Democratic Party is working so hard to silence progressive voices in Montana
and we pledge to continue to fight for your right to vote for candidates that represent you!
The DNC has brought in Perkins & Coie, the same high powered international law firm that they used to defend HRC and the DNC against Bernie supporters after the 2016 Democratic National Convention! Standing up to these bullies is not going to easy and we need financial support!
EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS!
Together we can stand up to these bullies and defend the civil rights of all Montanan's!
The Green Party for peace, people and planet has every right to have candidates on the ballot.
The Corporate Shenanigan Parties of empire should not be allowed to hog the ticket.
We only have two choices...
One can vote for unending wars, bankruptcy, global depression and chaos with the corporate partites.
Or vote for peace, people and a healing planet with a Green New Deal.
A life or death choice... for Freedom http://mtgreenparty.org/donate/
There will be an election this coming November.
Republicans brag and Democrats lie about dozens of avoidable wars of choice
which have already bankrupted the nation: spending trillions killing millions for
billionaires with wars for extraction, exploitation and extortion.
We need a Green New Deal for peace, people and planet... or 12 years from now it will be all over but the shoutin'
The corporate parties have merged… and we must not be moved. “How can we create a sustainable green future that includes economic equity and social justice?”
“How can agendas for economic rights and environmental protection become more integrated and more successful?” Seventy-five years after the start of the New Deal,
and nearly 40 years after the first Earth Day, the need for basic change on behalf of social justice and ecology is clear. But ideas are the easy part. In an era of massive
environmental damage and vast economic inequality, we’ve got to organize.
It is time for a Green New Deal to revitalize the nation and invest in a sustainable future.
If you can afford even a dollar or two, this will help us fight the corporate elite and
finally we can have a real chance for peace, justice and freedom on the ballot.
