I am contacting Green National Committee delegates by e-mail to try and get
them to support Amendment 835: The Economic Democracy Amendment which would
make the GP anti-capitalist.

Here is a letter that I received from one of them:

NAME DELETED,

Though this reply may open a can of worms (labelled "Further Replies"
perhaps) but I have to ask you to not to write me again. Nothing personal
or anything having to do views on 835, but I'd rather not recieve
unsolicited pleas (that should be restricted to the GPUS NC list.)

Thanks,
XXXXXXXXXXXXX

My response:

I will respect your wishes and will not contact you again, but I am sorry
that we have NC delegates who take this top-down attitude towards rank and
file Greens who have a right to voice their positions to GNC delegates.
Your office is not only for you and other delegates (the NC listserv is
only for delegates and alternates), you are accountable to the party as a
whole because your votes determine the course of the party, which is the
business of rank and file Greens.

Best Wishes.
