Green Party and Class Politics

Posted by Jack Stephens on July 11, 2008

Dave Marlow blogs:

Fellow blogger Renegade Eye put it best: “I don’t believe the Green Party is the alternative party formation, since it lacks a program and class basis.” The Green Party is incapable of leading a successful workers revolution, at least in its current manifestation, because of its inherent ties to reformism and its separation from class struggle. They are not a genuine proletarian party and so any progress achieved through the Green Party will be limited to the confines of a non-revolutionary framework.

  1. That quote has parts correct, I don’t remember saying exactly that.

    The Greens are a middle class party, without a program. I work with them on Cynthia McKinney’s campaign. She supports the embryonic Reconstruction Party, based in post-Katrina New Orleans. It’s a black led party with a working class program.
