Green Party Welcomes Voters Exploited by Scandals of the Democratic and Republican Establishment 

Pittsburgh -- In the past weeks, the Green Party of Allegheny County has witnessed the Democratic and Republican establishment continue their gluttonous exploitation of the citizenry and of our natural environment. As the current power structure drives our society toward the destruction of democracy and ecological collapse, we ask responsible residents to join with us and become a democratic firewall to finally end the absolute violence inflicted upon the people.
Last week, Iowa’s Democratic Party used mobile technology and their well-financed power structure to defraud that state’s citizens during the party’s presidential caucuses. The disregard for satellite caucuses made up of ethnically diverse working-class residents is shameful. The blatant misrepresentation of voter numbers and the slow release of the results provided the media a distorted projection of the candidates and their supporters. That totalitarian control over the trajectory of the Democratic presidential contest to stop the popular nomination of Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont is a clear mockery of democracy.
Another recent, horrific example of exploitation came to light on February 4, when we learned the Pennsylvania State Legislature passed HB 1100, which uses corporate tax giveaways to encourage more fracking and petrochemical processing. Allegheny County already has some of the dirtiest, unhealthy air in the nation. The state’s political establishment has again ignored the benefits of the Green New Deal that could develop a sustainable economic infrastructure for energy and usher in a renaissance for American manufacturing. Instead, the egregious and arrogant decision to fund the further destruction of the ecosystem will undoubtedly increase the planet’s temperature past the 1.5C and 2C set by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2018.
As devoted democratic actors in the world’s former epicenter of steel production, we call upon our neighbors to resist the march toward totalitarian control and the anthropogenic destruction of the ecosystem. 
Join us! Together, we can work to end this violence and pursue justice for the vulnerable, our nation, and the planet.
Signed in Power and Solidarity,

Green Party of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania
