Keepin busy with the Philly Greens – a march, a dinner, a meeting, and a concert

Ross Levin at Op-Ed News (H/T Gregg Jocoy at Green Party Watch):

The quickly growing Green Party of Philadelphia has a community dinner, citywide meeting, and fundraising concert with folk singer Tom Neilson/the bard insurgent all coming up in the next few weeks. We’re also supporting a march to end foreclosures in Philadelphia on Monday.


The Green Party of Philadelphia has three events in the next few weeks, and we’re also supporting a march to end foreclosures in Philadelphia organized by the Poor People’s Economic Rights Campaign, taking place on Martin Luther King Day. The first event is a community dinner to discuss organizing on the 22nd, the second is a party meeting (of course open to whoever wants to go) on the 27th, and the third is a fundraising concert with the folk singer Tom Neilson, aka the bard insurgent. More info below.

    The march went well. It was more energetic than pretty much any other protest I’ve ever been to, and it got some good local media coverage. Cheri Honkala – the national coordinator of the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign among other things – announced that if the sheriff doesn’t initiate a moratorium on foreclosures, she’ll have to run for sheriff with the Green Party.
