The Global Greens call for governments in Warsaw to meet the challenge of the climate crisis and move quickly to create safe climate economies that are socially just, don’t rely on fossil fuel use and allow humanity to live within the Earth’s ecological limits. Greens globally are committed to continue working inside and outside parliament for urgent action on climate change, both directly and through the UN system.

Egypt update: Global Greens urge immediate end of violence and restoration of democracy

The Global Greens utterly condemn the massacre perpetrated by the military against supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood in Cairo, Alexandria and other centres in Egypt on 14 August 2013. The violent dissolution of the sit-ins in Al-Nahda Square and Raba’a al-Adawiyya demonstrates that the military forces in Egypt are not responding to the ongoing social and political crisis in Egypt in a democratic and peaceful manner. We call on the military government to halt the violence immediately and for the perpetrators to be brought to justice in accordance with international law and human rights.

Egypt: Urgent need to launch a national dialogue, restore democracy and reactivate the economy

Global Greens concern about attack on Pakistan Green

Pakistan Greens Chair Liaquat Ali Shaikh, his wife and driver were attacked at gunpoint and robbed on June 19, 2013 in Hyerabad city, Sindh province, Pakistan.

The Global Greens express grave concern at this latest attack and call for the Pakistan authorities to investigate thoroughly, including to determine whether the attack was politically motivated.
