THE GREENS GET GRUFF

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

The Green Party has joined MoveOn.org and at least a half­dozen other groups who plan ma­jor protests in the na­tion’s cap­i­tal for In­au­gu­ra­tion Day, now 24 days off. The Greens are wary of Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump, of course, but they also ap­pear an­noyed at every­one else as well.

“We knew, no mat­ter who was to be elected, Trump or Hil­lary Clin­ton, the voices of the 99 per­cent would be shut out. We are call­ing for unity to stand against the oli­garchy and de­mand

rep­re­sen­ta­tion for the peo­ple,” de­clares Green Party co-chair Dar­ryl L.C. Moch.

“Greens are also protest­ing Democrats and mod­er­ate Repub­li­cans whose re­sponse to Mr. Trump’s ex­trem­ist agenda will be ac­com­mo­da­tion, com­pro­mise and ca­pit­u­la­tion. The real op­po­si­tion party dur­ing the next four years will be Greens, not Democrats,” says Mr. Moch.
