I became a Green because America’s “bipartisan system” defends the injustices of the terrible times we live in. We’ve become used to the “new normal” of perpetual war, corrupt elections, austerity, extra-judicial killings, and ecological madness. But the Greens are part of an international citizens’ movement that wants to build a more peaceful, more equal, and hence more just world.
