END THE SPYING! — DEFEND YOUR CIVIL AND HUMAN RIGHTS
PROVIDENCE, RI (July 13, 2013) — The Green Party of Rhode Island has co-founded an alliance to build public awareness and resistance to government spying on the American people.
Why? Because the staggering problems we face as a nation—including economic and social inequality; perpetual war abroad and violence at home; the skapegoating of immigrants, labor, and students; escalating attacks on women's rights, voting rights, and civil rights; police brutality and racial profiling; inhumane treatment of prisoners; budget cuts that slash human services, education, health care, transportation, and housing; and unprecedented devastation of the natural world—are sparking public outrage and mass protest in many cities. At the same time, the general public is deeply concerned about how local police, the FBI, ICE, Homeland Security, and other agencies will violate human rights, and misuse their vast universal database of phone calls, emails, and Internet activity.
In alliance with Occupy Providence, the National Lawyers Guild, ISO, the Unitarian Universalist Legislative Ministry, and others, the Green Party has co-founded the Coalition to Defend Human and Civil Rights.

WE ARE INDEPENDENT.
In the United States, where money dominates politics, Greens are the only party that accepts no contributions at all from corporations or corporate PACs. Because Green public policies are often blocked by business—on a broad range of issues from environmental protection to human rights—Greens' independence from corporate influence is a powerful basic principle with us. It means we can aggressively defend both the Earth and the Earth's people. But it also means we rely on small donations from people just like you. Can you help? Make a donation today!
