The Green Party of California Monday said its party members are joining and supporting actions by thousands of teachers, students and social justice activists here to "occupy" the State Capitol this week to pressure the Legislature and Governor to rethink their plans of hurting the most vulnerable in the state in order to balance the budget. The Green Party noted that the Capitol is bipartisan - Democrats and Republicans - in deciding to let the very wealthy go largely unscathed while the sick, poor, young and the elderly bear the brunt of proposed budget cuts.
The Green Party of California attacked Gov. Brown's slashing more than $11 billion from the state budget late Thursday, calling the actions avoidable if only the Governor and the Legislature had "guts." Brown signed legislation approving higher community college fees, eliminating Adult Day Health Care, and cutting monies from welfare-to-work grants and First5 childhood development funds.
