Green New Deal protest march - Sunrise Movement

Juliana Plaintiffs Group Picture

On Tuesday, June 4, at 2 p.m. Pacific Time, three judges of the Ninth Circuit will hear arguments by the Trump Administration seeking to stop the Juliana v.

From time to time, SCNCC endorses statements made by other groups that advance the principles we support.  The statement by the Ecosocialist Working Group (EWG) of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is one such statement.  We hope EWG's statement will gain wide support within DSA and that DSA will adopt its demands and EWG's firm stance against cooptation and watering down of the Green New Deal by the Democratic Party.  Like the EWG, we see the Green New Deal as an arena for class struggle, not as a legislative initiative that we will support no matter what direction it takes.
