First ever meeting of the Wesleyan College Greens

Ross “Applesauce” Levin ’15 just can’t be stopped:

The College Greens is a new, nationwide organization of Green Party chapters at colleges and universities.  After being founded at this month’s speaking event with Cheri Honkala, the Green candidate for Sheriff in Philadelphia, we’ll be holding our first formal meeting.  We will be discussing just what exactly the Green Party is, phonebanking for Honkala on campus, an upcoming visit from the Green Party’s 2004 presidential nominee, and where we’ll be heading after that.

If you’re curious about the Green Party more generally, it’s an ecological party with four key pillars:  social justice, ecological wisdom, nonviolence, and grassroots democracy.  Green Parties exist all over the world, and the US Green Party’s website is http://gp.org

Date: Oct. 18
Time: 9:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Place: The University Organizing Center, 190 High St
Cost: $Mad Greens
Edit: EDITED THIS TO LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT ED MCKEON, THE PROGRESSIVE ACTIVIST AND INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE FOR BOARD OF EDUCATION IN MIDDLETOWN (WHOSE AWESOME GREEN CAMPAIGN SIGN IS HANGING FROM MY WINDOW AT 200 CHURCH), WILL PROBABLY BE AT THE MEETING.

Couldn’t get enough of “Moss” Levin? We understand. More commentary about the GOP from a man, a plan, a canal – Panama:

[I’m sure you puny mortals already knew that] we just got founded but we’ve already been involved in bringing two nationally-known speakers to campus?  So that makes us pretty cool.  And we’re going to Massachusetts this weekend to volunteer for this guy:  http://markmiller2011.org

And the GP’s been very supportive of Occupy Wall St...[really, do you need to know anything else?]

    RIGHT ON! Do you have a facebook group up? I’d love to be in contact with you.

    (1) Is this “Green Party” the same one of Ralph Nader fame?
    (2) Is Mark Miller’s real name Benjamin Nushmutt?

        It would certainly be interesting to attend if it were all possible for me. You see, I graduated in May and am now working Poland. Wormholes are their applications are always most welcome, however.

    You’re too kind, Mr. A-Batte!  But you should edit this to let everyone know that Ed McKeon, the progressive activist and independent candidate for Board of Education in Middletown (whose awesome green campaign sign is hanging from my window at 200 Church), will probably be at the meeting.
