Federal Marijuana Legalization

Federal Legalization – With news that there is a bill on the House Floor, to legalize Marijuana use on the Federal level, we now have even more reason to celebrate the GPUS 420 event. Looking forward to LEGALIZATION!

Sex Workers Rights

Sex Worker’s Rights – Here in the state of Nevada, in certain counties, brothels are legal and of course this involves Sex Work. We at the Nevada Green Party support Sex Worker’s Rights, because the people involved are at an age of majority, sign contracts for this type of work, are protected from misuse and abuse. State Law dictates they are medically tested once a week, must use prophylactics when engaging in their chosen profession and a public health notice must be present in a conspicuous place, in their place of employment. One of our Co Chairs lives in a county that has brothels and has had interactions with the some of the Sex Workers. She has been quoted as saying, ” The Sex Workers here in Nye County, where prostitution and brothels are legal, are protected, there are no pimps to beat them, no one to force them to perform sex acts against their will and no drug abuse by the contractors. Furthermore there are no ‘street-walkers’ here in Nye County.”

At one time, almost each and every Brothel Sex Worker even offered to pay taxes, calling themselves ‘Hookers for Hillary’, during the 2016 Presidential cycle. Their offer was denied due to Senator Harry Reid’s insistence on brothels being bad for Corporate Businesses in the state of Nevada, which is ironic to say the least. Sex – Workers deserve legitimate recognition for their valuable contribution to society.

Proposal 1075

Proposal 1075 – This proposal was supposed to incorporate the Steering Committee statement on mandates and the National Black Caucus proposal against it, co-sponsored by GPNV, because the Steering Committee statement is in violation of the GPUS Social Justice plank, against experimental vaccines being used on American troops. It turned out to be a proposal to endorse the Steering Committee Statement on vaccine mandates and was failing by an 80% margin with the National Committee Delegation, according to an unofficial poll of the National Committee Delegation. At this time the Steering Committee statement still stands and they are now stone-walling the Delegation. Many members of the National Committee Delegation, want the word “mandate” removed from the entire Steering Committee statement or they want the statement pulled in its entirety, in order to come out with a well crafted statement, to better represent the entirety of the National Committee Delegation.

Campaign Coordinating Committee Timeline

Campaign Coordinating Committee Timeline – The CCC was supposed to have held elections for nominations to the CCC starting on December 1st. Instead, without notice, the Steering Committee decided to without notice, hold them in February. There are currently 5 members on the CCC. We are waiting for the next election cycle in order to nominate GPNV Co Chair Alex Mann to the CCC.

Earth Day Strike

Earth Day Strike – With the proposal to endorse the EARTH DAY STRIKE passing by a majority vote of the National Delegation, we at GPNV are looking forward to hearing from our membership about actions and activities they are sponsoring or would like to participate in. Please contact us so we may publicize your event or action at nvgreenparty@gmail.com

Statement on Western Imperialism and the Conflict in Ukraine

The Green Party Peace Action Committee (GPAX) views the conflict in Ukraine as the tragic, yet inevitable, result of relentless effort by the U.S., NATO, and the European Union for global economic, political, and military dominance. Within this context, the current conflict stems from the 2014 US-backed coup of Ukraine’s democratically elected government – and in the determination of the U.S./EU/NATO to convert Ukraine, whose government recently stated its intention to acquire nuclear weapons, into a heavily militarized NATO member nation located on the border of the Russian Federation.

NATO’s expansion has been a pressing security concern for Russia since 1998, when the U.S. govt. inaugurated the formal process of growing NATO’s membership to include former nations of the Warsaw Pact – Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. NATO expansion into Eastern Europe has been carried out, not only in violation of a pledge – made by Secretary of State James A. Baker to then-Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev in 1990 – that NATO would not expand one inch eastward with the end of the Cold War, but also in violation of subsequent treaties in which the U.S. and its allies committed to respect the security concerns of other countries, including the Russian Federation.

Today, as the conflict escalates, NATO’s aggressive expansion has become an existential threat to all oppressed and colonized people around the world. A similar effort to expand is occurring in Latin America with the use of Colombia and Brazil as U.S. proxies against Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Cuba. Also, in the African continent, regime change is enacted through AFRICOM funding and training. For peace to arrive in these regions and in the world, NATO and AFRICOM must be dismantled.

For GPAX, peace is not merely the absence of conflict. Peace means a world liberated from militarism, nuclear proliferation, imperialism and unjust war, patriarchy, and white supremacy. The resurgence and celebration of Nazism in Ukraine, as well as in the West, demonstrates that the global consolidation of xenophobia and racism, especially white supremacy, is an integral part of imperialism.

For GPAX, peace also means: dismantling the military-industrial complex and all intelligence agencies that engage in covert warfare & that subject U.S. citizens to unconstitutional surveillance for “anti-government” views; nationalizing the oil & gas industries that realize windfall profits from contrived world shortages (i.e. oil/gas from Iran, Venezuela and Russia are restricted); abolishing illegal unilateral economic sanctions that kill and cause untold suffering to the people of targeted countries; and nationalizing the Federal Reserve system – that funnels stolen & frozen foreign assets to select member banks which misuse these illicit funds in the repurchasing market to realize extraordinary profit. Witness what’s happening with Afghanistan’s assets, more than 20 years after the U.S. first invaded.

The only way to end war is to end corporate profiteering!

Bloated “defense” budgets must be reinvested into education, health and childcare, housing, and a people centered Green New Deal. While we grieve for the current loss of life in Ukraine, we also mourn over 14,000 deaths in Eastern Ukraine caused over the last 8 years by the Ukrainian military armed heavily by the U.S. We also mourn hundreds of thousands of deaths in Somalia, Yemen, and in every nation suffering because of NATO provoked wars and armed conflicts. We offer our unwavering solidarity with all victims of imperialism.

To secure the interests of the Russian and Ukrainian people, there must be good faith negotiations between the Russian Federation, representatives of the peoples of Donbas, and the Ukraine. The EU and the U.S. must end their continuous shipments of arms and other “lethal aid” to Ukraine. The 2015 Minsk agreements, signed by both Ukraine and Russia and the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, and approved by the UN Security Council in 2015, offer one formula for a diplomatic solution to the conflict that would satisfy the aspirations of the peoples of the Donbass for autonomy from the current Ukrainian government.

It was only after the Ukrainian government’s shelling of Eastern Ukraine, in violation of the Minsk agreement – which was confirmed by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) – that Russia, in mid-February, withdrew its support. The conflict in Ukraine has exposed the destructive effects of imperialism: war, racism, and militarism, which continually result in the unjust and anti-democratic redistribution & concentration of capital. Our demand for peace requires an end to U.S. imperialism and its implementation by NATO and other U.S. military alliances.

Late Newsletter
Rent Control
Rescind Right to Work
Donations
Background Checker
Text Bank Helpers

The Nevada Green Party is Cactus Strong!!!

Late Newsletter: Many developments occurred during and within 48 hours after
our February meeting, which curtailed some announcements significantly. The full
scope of the changes will be addressed in March’s Nevada Green Rhythm. We apologize for this delay.

Rent Control: Corporate landlords have jumped on the price gouging wagon of
individuals, making unexplained yearly increases in the State of Nevada and across
the country, putting a great burden on a populace they stifle, from obtaining a living
wage. We also recognize independent landlords follow suit while bulking up contracts with ‘mini repairs’ being the responsibility of the renter. Nevada’s Rent Regulations need an update to include rent control from unreasonable, harmful fees and hikes to renters. Right now we are seeing individuals being priced out of being able to rent a place to live.

Right to Work: The bitter pill. There are many flaws to the “Right to Work Act” that
prevent all workers from having a fair voice. Topping off Right to Work issues Wisconsin has a hospital suing 7 employees from quitting to start working for a different company, for a higher wage and better promised conditions. One Right to Work standard is that the employee or company can terminate without notice or just cause and should not reflect negatively as long as there is no contracted length of employment expected. Forced labor must be stopped before “Right to Work” becomes 100% on the side of the employers only.

Donations: We are climbing! Thank you everyone! Buy Swag! Donate! All
funds are being used for operational costs and expansion of Nevada’s
outreach. The GPNV is currently keeping all donations in the State of Nevada,
to aid in our efforts to build a strong, turnkey party from year to
year, as officers change and our needs in the State of Nevada change. We are working on a process that will keep donations in the private sector and away from corporate funding. At this time GPNV is not contributing to GPUS, because they want our donor’s information and we feel that unless you give us permission to share your information or donation details, we will not at this time. Your privacy matters to us. Donating a portion of our donations to the GPUS is on the back-burner. We do not want to be another party, just about donations, we want to stay a party about standing up for “We the People”.

Background Checker: Times have changed. We have voted to use a
background checker program in the future, to assist in reviewing individuals
wanting to jump in fast and hard to assist the GPNV, and instead create havoc. With our great strides we have met unique situations that could have been prevented with an option to review past history. This is not to say that we will not
welcome dedicated individuals, we only want to make sure that the
position(s) have current and acceptable probation periods, if access to internal controls are to be issued. This is our party and we want to continue to strengthen our Party, our position and our voice.

Text Bank Helpers: We have the processes mapped out! Do not be surprised in the
next 30 days if you receive a text from us. We have selected a free option to
start. In the beginning you will receive one text, where you can let us know your confirm or remove preferences with texts and we will honor your wishes. Nobody likes spam texts so we are looking at 1 text a month to announce the GPNV Green Rhythm release and 1 text a month when we have candidates running for office. Hopefully in the future we will be able to touch base no more than 4 times a month, or once a week.

Registration: The GPNV Steering Committee suggests checking your status every
3-5 months, and during election seasons every month. It’s free! Remember
the SOS has put us in the Minor Party selections and frequently updates their site.
