At its November 16th meeting, the Green Party of Nassau County will host a conversation with Richard Green, an activist and member of the New Zealand Green Party. His Green Party membership dates from the late 1980's when he returned to New Zealand, as does his Amnesty International membership. He has been chair of his local group for about 30 years.
During this interactive meeting, Richard will speak on a number of themes: the proportional electoral system New Zealand has adopted which enables Green Party representation, the rather enlightened Green/Left government New Zealand has at the moment, the success New Zealand has had in dealing with Covid-19 and race relations, prospects for the forthcoming election, an outsider's view of the shenanigans in the United States, how a nationalized health system and education system work, the no-blame approach to accident compensation, a minimum wage that would blow Americans' minds, and other topics. Richard's wife Jeanette might appear on screen beside Richard and give a New Yorker-turned-Kiwi's take on it all as well.
To attend the meeting, send an RSVP to [email protected] and you will be sent the Zoom link. The meeting will run from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM on Monday, November 16, 2020. All Greens everywhere are welcome to attend.
