The Green Party of the United States endorses the Durban+10 Coalition

ASHINGTON, DC — The Green Party of the United States has endorsed the Durban+10 Coalition and its efforts to enact the agenda of the 2001 World Conference Against Racism, which took place in Durban, South Africa. The goal of the Durban conference was “to eradicate racial discrimination, inequity, colonialism, xenophobia and related intolerances” throughout the world.

The full text of the resolution adopted on August 28, 2011 by the National Committee of the Green Party of the United States, with supporting information, can be read here: http://green.gpus.org/cgi-bin/vote/propdetail?pid=616

The 2001 Durban conference drew participation from the nations of the world, despite attempts by the Bush Administration to undermine the event and refusal by the Bush-Powell State Department to attend. The Obama-Clinton State Department has maintained a similarly dismissive position on the conference.

“In this International Year for People of African Descent proclaimed by the UN General Assembly during its 64th session held in 2009, we in the Green Party hope that public officials and politicians, including President Obama, who are celebrating the new Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial will demonstrate their dedication to Dr. King’s principles and embrace the Durban conference and its goals,” said Denice Traina, former co-chair of the Georgia Green Party (http://www.greens.org/georgia).
