An Open Letter to the 'Vote Uncommitted' Movement

On behalf of the Maryland  Green Party, we would like to congratulate the organizers, advocates, and voters who helped to secure nearly 65,000 votes for “Uncommitted” in the Maryland Democratic Primary. In doing so, these voters used the power of the ballot to demand an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza, demonstrating that any vote for President Joe Biden can and will be contingent upon an end to US support of the ongoing genocide enacted by the state of Israel.  Continue reading

Maryland Green Party Response to the Key Bridge Collapse

The Maryland Green Party sends our love and solidarity to the people of the Baltimore area as we watch the news about the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge. Several repair workers died in the collapse. We are saddened by these tragic and unnecessary deaths. The impact of this disaster goes beyond those that lost their life and their families. The Key Bridge was a major part of the local economy and regional transit infrastructure. Greens believe that we need to invest in infrastructure, regulate the transnational shipping industry, move beyond a coal-based economy, and use precautionary principles to ensure that economic growth in places like the Baltimore Harbor protects the needs of workers, communities, and the environment. The reconstruction of the Key Bridge must ensure that the communities surrounding it do not become a space of environmental sacrifice.
