Mexican and Irish Green Parties shame the colour
Yes, sometimes political parties mess up big time.
The Irish Green Party will lose all their seats in the General Election having gone into coalition with a centre right party who have literally bankrupted Ireland.
So they are attacking Sinn Fein in a vain attempt to gain more than 0.5% of the vote, disgusting. The mainstream Republican movement has embraced peace. Peace is a green value, they have put aside their guns, a cheap shot to make John Gormley less humilated, it just isn't on.
But the Greens are going for a stunt according to Irish political bloggers Cedar Lounge.
They have no shame, they should apologies. Instant karma's going to get you.
In Mexico the Green Party is attacking the Zapatistas to build a tourist centre:
The Zapatistas had been expressing increasing concern about the intentions of the priistas and the Partido Verde (Green party) to develop the Agua Azul waterfalls and its surroundings with the funding of foreign multinationals into a mass tourism complex contrary to their own attempts to preserve the natural beauty of the area. On January 26th the Zapatistas had warned about an eviction of the tollbooth. Workers at the Fray Bartoleme de las Casas (Frayba) human rights centre in San Cristobel have also been documenting attempts by the priistas to invade the land occupied by Zapatistas since 2002 at Bolon Ajaw near the waterfalls.
Both Green Parties should be kicked out of the global green movement, given the urgency of crisis on the planet, we have to do better, not serve corrupt powers.
Green Parties need to support green fundamentals of peace, ecology, justice and grassroots democracy.
Greens evolved in response, partly to left parties who had sold out and lost their way, Greens need to be principled.
