As far as Hawkins belonging to a wing of the Grreens that included Bruce
Dixon: Dixon and his Black Agenda Report were (BAR still is) one of the
very worst of the horrible Assadists. And BAR still in effect promotes the
Republicans as being a lesser evil compared to the Democrats, which they
brand as “the” (not “a” but “the”) war party. Having these Assadists inside
the Green Party is certainly no recommendation.

As far as the class nature of the Greens: I don't think whether they have
workers in them or not is central. In my opinion, what is central is how a
party develops. A working class party will develop out of an upheaval of
the working class itself.

Louis raises the prospect of a layer of youth and workers turning to the
Greens after the next election. I had thought that could happen after the
last one so i started going to GP meetings here in Oakland. It didnt happen
and i am very skeptical it will happen in the future (although I accept
that its possible. If it does happen, though, i think the more class
conscious elements (and those who don't support Assad) will be met with
resistance all up and down the party.
