Please forward and act immediately:::

The nomination of David Cobb as the Green Party presidential 
candidate in Milwaukee was due to a well organized campaign to turn a 
minority view in the Green Party into what appeared as a "majority" 
decision at the convention.  To correct this injustice, the 
Coordinating Committee of the Green Party of California will vote on 
Monday August 9 on whether to hold a Special General Assembly to let 
California Greens decide if they want to put Nader/Camejo on the our 
ballot line.

If you believe that the Green Party should continue to challenge the 
two-party "duopoly" and should not compromise it principles, then 
please sign the following proposal and email it to one (or all) of 
the CC members listed below. Time is of the essence!

PROPOSAL TO HOLD A SPECIAL GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO PUT NADER/CAMEJO ON 
THE GREEN PARTY BALLOT IN CALIFORNIA

Whereas:

1. A grossly undemocratic process was used at the national convention 
of the US Green Party, as described in the article, "Rigged 
Convention Divides Green Party," by Carol Miller and Forrest Hill 
(see www.greensfornader.net);

2 Each state Green Party should have the right to nominate candidates 
supported by a majority of its members because the results of the 
national Green Party Convention do not represent the views of a 
majority of Greens in California, indeed, they represent the views of 
a small minority;

3. An overwhelming majority of Greens in the United States and 
California support the presidential ticket of Ralph Nader and Peter 
Miguel Camejo;

4. The Democratic Party has devoted huge resources to harass 
canvassers, to keep Nader/Camejo off the ballot in California

5. Ralph Nader would hold fundraisers to support local candidates if 
nominated by the Green Party of California,.

6. Nader and Camejo are the only candidates supporting Green values 
that have a chance of getting in the national televised debates.

7. The Green Party of California is a recognized Party in California 
and has a ballot line;

Therefore be it resolved that:

We the undersign urge the Coordinating Committee of the Green Party 
of California to show leadership and hold a Special General Assembly 
too place Ralph Nader on the California state ballot for President of 
the United States and Peter Miguel Camejo on the California state 
ballot for Vice President of the United States.

Signed
