The Problem of the Pro-War Greens

By James S. Page

Abstract

The Green Parties or Greens have emerged as an important international political force in recent years. A crucial policy of the Greens is a commitment to peace and nonviolence. Yet a close analysis of the actions of the leadership of the Greens indicates that this commitment is not as clear as would appear. It is concluded that the leadership of the Green Parties is either manipulative of peace concerns or ignorant of what is involved in genuine commitment to peace and nonviolence. Those committed to peace and nonviolence ought to think carefully before supporting the Greens
