【臨時総会決議】 安保関連法案の廃案に全力を尽くし、「安倍政治」を終わらせよう

2015/07/28 臨時総会決議

 戦後70年目となるこの夏、安倍政権と安保法制によって戦後政治が大きな岐路に立たされている中で、緑の党は、7月25日から26日にかけて、連日国会包囲行動が取り組まれている東京において臨時総会を開催しました。

 この総会では、来年の参院選方針や掲げるべき重点政策などを議論するとともに、各地の活動の情報や経験も報告・共有されました。そうした議論や意見交換の中で、全国各地で多様な層や人々の中から安保法制や安倍政権に反対する声が高まり、それが互いに共感し合いながら大きく拡がっていること、その中で、私たち緑の党も他の政治勢力や市民とともにいっそう力を尽くしていく必要性を確信しました。

Govt should declare climate change a threat to peace and security

The Green Party is calling on the New Zealand Government to use its presidency of the UN Security Council to introduce a determination, in the form of a presidential statement or resolution following the Open Debate, that climate change is a threat to international peace and security.

“New Zealand can use its UN Security Council presidency to highlight the threat that climate change poses to international peace and security,” said Green Party global affairs spokesperson Dr Kennedy Graham.

Capturing The Spirit of Wellington’s Greens Wind

In an effort to tackle climate change and to improve the conditions of political leadership in Indonesia that is still far from green values, the existence of a Green Party Indonesia has become urgent. In many cases, the oligarchy of current political parties still obstructs the leadership of the good people and the work of Greens in Indonesia. Thus, there is no other choice but to build the Green Party of Indonesia as early as possible to save the good people and promote Green politics. The blowing of this Green wind should be maintained and nurtured. Indonesian Greens should be able to use this wind to free their country from environmental suffering. This wind will also fly the pride of Indonesia as "the lungs of the earth" with other tropical rainforests countries. This wind will only continue to exist if Indonesia Greens are united. The wind that is not cold at all. The wind that warmful, refreshed and very fun. Wind of friendship. Wind of change.

第三屆亞太綠人大會 議決通過多元性別權益決議文

第三屆亞太綠人大會(2015 APGF 3rd Congress - Wellington, New Zealand)於今年6月12至14日在紐西蘭舉行,長期推動多元成家法案的台灣伴侶權益推動聯盟許秀雯律師偕同台灣綠黨出席此會。由許秀雯律師草擬的一項多元性別權益保障決議文,在代表團的努力下,獲得來自十多個亞太國家的綠黨無異議通過。此決議文為亞太綠人大會第一次通過有關多元性別的決議文,成功促成多元性別的跨國結盟。

決議文草擬者許秀雯欣見此進展,並分享此行與多國綠黨國會議員會談的心得。她表示澳洲國會議員Janet Rice在聽到台灣民調有半數以上支持同性婚姻,但兩大黨卻欠缺堅定的政治意志推動婚姻平權法案後,深有同感地表示澳洲面臨很相像的狀況。但澳洲保守黨的總理Tony Abbott日前已經鬆口表示,可以開放黨員良心投票,婚姻平權已露出曙光。面對台灣局勢,Janet Rice認為將多元性別的議題放上政治議程是重要的,支持者若能凝聚政治實力,成功的腳步應該可以快點到來。
