Green Party State Convention set for Berkeley Saturday & Sunday; party candidates reveal "Green Answer" to current economic crisis

GREEN PARTY OF CALIFORNIA NEWS RELEASE

BERKELEY, Ca. (April 4, 2008) - There will be debates on cloned animals and Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), but Green candidates will opine on the current economic crisis in the state and nationally at the Green Party of California State Convention April 5-6, Saturday and Sunday, at Dwinelle Hall (Room 145) at the University of California, Berkeley.

A news conference will be held SATURDAY, April 5, at 12 Noon (Room 215) where the state of the economy (local, state and national) and the "Green Answer" will be presented by Green candidates for state, federal and local offices.

Greens delegates will discuss a ban on GMOs and cloned animals, including requiring public warning labels on such products if they are legalized, and also requiring the USDA to alert counties, and neighboring farmers if GMOs are being used in their areas. Greens would also hold the source biotechnology corporation legally accountable for any "genetic pollution."

Greens will also create a new platform plank dealing with "Green Chemistry," which is the design and use of "chemicals, processes and products that are safer for human and environmental health (to prevent) hazardous exposures."

Finally, Greens will consider expanded rights for the disabled, and their families...and guarantee members of the disabled community their basic civil rights, including the right to marry, right to parenthood, right to education, right to vote, right to access to the court system, the right to competent legal representation and the right to appropriate accommodation in prisons and jails.
