Join Peter Nightingale at the Green Party of Rhode Island's general meeting
Three and a half years ago, the Burrillville police arrested URI physicist Peter Nightingale. In the pre-dawn hours of August 13, 2015, Peter had chained himself to the Spectra Energy gate, protesting the fracked-gas compressor station being built there. In the years since, Peter has become a well-known climate justice campaigner, protesting, organizing, and telling the world it's time to end the use of fossil fuels. Like Green Parties across the country, we agree with Peter. As a nation, at every level of government, we must take action now to abandon fossil fuels, to save the Earth from catastrophic climate change. It may be too late to avoid the worst, but we haven't given up, and neither have you!
The time to act is NOW.
On Saturday, March 2, please join Peter at our Green Party of Rhode Island 2019 Spring General Meeting. Peter is one of the conveners of Nature’s Trust in Rhode Island, and will discuss the relationships among ecological destruction, climate change, a loss of democracy, and the war machine—and what it will take to undo the damage. What are concrete things we all can do? At this meeting we will also welcome new members, and make plans for the 2020 elections. Come and share in our discussion on the NEXT STEPS for building a society based on Social Justice, Peace, Democracy & Ecological Wisdom.
Every Green Party supporter is welcome to attend.
Read Peter's newest essay, about the Green New Deal - "The Green New Deal vs. Capitalism"

ABOUT THE GREEN PARTY. The Green Party of Rhode Island is a small, independent political party in the State of Rhode Island. Since our founding in 1992, we've helped establish the national Green Party in 1996, participated in the First Global Green Gathering in 2001, and placed Green candidates for U.S. President on the Rhode Island ballot for every election since 1996. Over the years we've also sponsored candidates for Congress, Lieutenant Governor, the General Assembly, city and town councils, Providence Mayor, Woonsocket Mayor, and other local offices.
We are serious about our political principles
The Green Party's core principles include Ecology, Equality, Democracy, and Peace. Want to learn more? Please send me email with GENERAL INFO on the Green Party
We need your help, in the fight for ecology and justice
Just like other political parties we run candidates for public office, but some of our most important work comes between elections, when we do grass-roots organizing that's unlike any other political party:
- We fight fossil fuel pipelines and promote wind and solar.
- We're working to end racial profiling and police brutality, and put a stop to racial discrimination.
- We advocate your right to privacy and civil liberties.
- We oppose mass surveillance, and would end mass incarceration.
- We support legalization of marijuana (cannabis) and hemp.
- We are against war, and support the peace movement in Rhode Island.
